We are more than happy to provide support over the course of its implementation, from the selection of a suitable ECDIS system to the compilation of charts according to the new regulations.
One of the biggest changes in the history of merchant shipping is on its way. Fitting of ECDIS will become mandatory. This process is set for launch in 2012 and, depending on the type and age of vessel, will be in place until 2018. Please find the text of the IMO regulation here: PDF
The timetable for newbuilds is based on the date the vessel’s keel is laid. Existing vessels will be required to fit ECDIS in advance of the first survey after the implementation date. There are no requirements for existing cargo vessels of less than 10,000 gross tons. Flag States may exempt vessels that will be taken permanently out of service within two years of the implementation date.
