Description: High standards of navigation are crucial for the safety of crew members, protection of the marine environment and to safeguard vessels and cargoes. Passage planning is an integral part of ensuring safety of navigation. With the increasing use of Electronic Chart Display and Information Systems (ECDIS), it is becoming more important to focus on ECDIS-related navigational policies and procedures.
Over the last decade, there have been several significant navigational incidents where one of the contributory factors has been ECDIS-related. With an increase in the number of vessels now using Electronic Navigation Charts (ENCs) as primary as well as secondary navigational charts, the appropriate use of ECDIS is critical to ensure safety of navigation.
This information paper is aimed at owners, operators, Masters, Navigating Officers, bridge team members including Pilots and ECDIS makers. It provides recommendations to enhance policies and procedures regarding the safe use of ECDIS.
