BICS stands for "Binnenvaart Informatie en Communicatie Systeem", which means Inland Information and Communication System, and is a software program (for Windows and Linux) that is used by skippers of inland shipping vessels to notify their voyage and cargo information electronically to the relevant waterway authorities. BICS uses international standards for electronic reporting. As a result, BICS can also be used in other European countries. You comply fully with mandatory electronic reporting requirements when you use BICS.
