United Kingdom Hydrographic Office – Implementing ECDIS

8 June 2016 @ 08:00 - 17:00


To achieve SOLAS carriage requirements for the use of ECDIS as a primary means of navigation, the ship’s safety management system must include procedures for the operational use of ECDIS. This seminar will outline the required policies and procedures, how to conduct a proper risk assessment and cover steps required for on-board implementation of ECDIS.

Who should attend
This seminar is for shipping companies who are currently implementing ECDIS or are yet to adopt and required to do so imminently. Due to the ECDIS mandate timetable, the seminar is likely to be of most use to those in the cargo vessel market which faces imminent mandate dates (over 50,000GT – July 2016), (over 20,000GT – July 2017) and (over 10,000GT – July 2018).
