NP232 – ADMIRALTY Guide to ECDIS Implementation, Policy and Procedures

We are pleased to announce NP232 – a brand new publication to support the transition to ECDIS.

The ADMIRALTY Guide to ECDIS Implementation, Policy and Procedures (NP232) has been designed to provide clear guidance on the introduction of ECDIS aboard ship and, in particular, to those involved in the development of detailed ECDIS operating procedures.

It is also intended to act as an on-board reference to support company procedures developed for the operation of ECDIS. This will assist in the preparation for audits and inspections, providing clarification of ECDIS policies and procedures.

This publication is the third in a series of publications which UKHO has developed in support of the transition to ENCs and ECDIS. To raise awareness of this new publication, a small flyer will be included in the AVCS weekly update CD. This will promote all three publications in the series; NP231, ADMIRALTY Guide to the Practical Use of ENCs; NP5012, ADMIRALTY Guide to ENC Symbols Used in ECDIS and NP232, ADMIRALTY Guide to ECDIS Implementation, Policy and Procedures.
