Currently,  he serves  as  Chairman of the Liner Committee at the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers and is the U.K. representative to the Federation of National Associations of Ship Brokers and Agents (FONASBA ), where he acts as Vice Chairman of the European Community Association of Ship Brokers and Agents (ECASBA ).  Having recently joined the Gardline Group with SCD (Charts & Publications) Ltd , Foord has assumed responsibility for business development, with the focus on ECDIS and electronic charting.


The session will cover i.a. flag and port state control, how the requirements affect ship owners/operators, current advice from the authorities and suppliers, training (generic and type-approved) as well as a live demonstration of an ECDIS system.
