Why do I need to implement ECDIS?
The introduction of ECDIS is the most significant change to have occurred in marine navigation in recent years, with a wide range of vessel types and sizes affected by the SOLAS ECDIS mandate.
This mandatory carriage of ECDIS has been put in place to help improve the safety and efficiency of marine navigation through heightened awareness and the automation of time-consuming navigational tasks. To meet this mandate, ships must have fitted ECDIS on board ship before the dates outlined in the International Maritime Organization's (IMO) rolling timetable.
NP232 gives clear, unambiguous guidance to the many going through this transition as well as practical guidance that will help you to introduce ECDIS alongside traditional navigational techniques.
