The European Maritime Data Management (EMDM) project faces the challenge of safe and secure European transport development with the study and development of new applications, functionalities and proposals for Voyage Data Recorders (VDRs) and Electronic Logbooks (ELBs). EMDM is a consortium of 8 partners including the three main European VDR and ELB manufacturers (Consilium, Kelvin Hughes, Kongsberg) three SMEs (Avenca, Euroquality, Sodena), the European Commission Joint Research Centre (JRC) and the University of Southampton (UoS).

This article gives an outline of the proposals for an enhanced VDR that is currently with the EU council for consideration.
