The Complete Guide to ECDIS is an indispensable resource for those contemplating ECDIS carriage and those already in the process of an ECDIS implementation.
At its 86th session from May 26 to June 5 2009, the IMOs Maritime Safety Committee approved new regulations making the carriage of ECDIS mandatory. The resulting amendments to SOLAS Chapter V regulation 19.2 require ships engaged on international voyages to be fitted with ECDIS. These regulations come into force over a 6 year period from July 2012, in stages depending on the vessel type.
