INTERTANKO/INTERCARGO Lunchtime Seminar - Electronic Chart Display and Information Systems (ECDIS)

At the INTERTANKO/INTERCARGO U.K. Members’ lunchtime meeting held on 24 June 2010 in the London office, John Foord, Business Development Manager at SCD (Charts and Publications) Ltd, provided a comprehensive overview on Electronic Chart Display and Information Systems (ECDIS).

 

Foord chose to elaborate on a number of documents concerning i.a. the requirements as included in SOLAS Regulation V/19, issues arising with implementation – timing; type of set-up (ECDIS or paper back up systems); charts (raster and electronic) and issues concerning availability and updates; port/flag state control compliance and training.

 

The training aspect was viewed as potentially a major issue for crewing departments, in particular the requirement for both generic and type-specific ECDIS familiarisation.
