Ian Moncrieff CBE, Chief Executive, UKHO, explains why Admiralty has developed a series of training tools to help seagoers operate safely with ECDIS
If the maritime industry is to realise the full benefits of ECDIS, it is essential that bridge watchkeepers are properly trained to be confident and proficient in planning and conducting navigation with ENCs on ECDIS and back of bridge systems.

After a number of popular sessions worldwide, we will be hosting our free Digital Integration Workshops in Athens at Posidonia 2012. Developed in conjunction with Captain Paul Hailwood, a renowned expert on ECDIS and integrated bridge operations, these Workshops are designed to help shipping companies plan for the requirements of the mandatory carriage of ECDIS and provide a clear and comprehensive checklist of actions at each stage of the transition.
The feedback we’ve received so far from attendees to previous workshops has been that training is their key priority on this journey. Interestingly though, at a recent event in Hamburg, the majority of delegates said legal requirements for the ECDIS Mandate were a top priority. Training and risk were also high on their list.

We’re just back from the Asia Pacific Maritime (APM) show in Singapore, where we met with the maritime community to talk about digital navigation.
More than 100 attendees attended our ‘Are you ready for the new ECDIS regulations?’ workshops, developed in conjunction with ECDIS expert Captain Paul Hailwood. The popular workshops guided the audience through a simple, step-by-step process to support compliance with the ECDIS Mandate, and gave them a chance to ask any questions.

A ship owner planning to install ECDIS from scratch has a mountain to climb. But as we are finding out through Admiralty’s digital integration workshops and the nine steps programme, knowing where to start need not be a mystery.
Once a company has established flag state requirements the first internal process should be to conduct an initial risk assessment – a process that shipping companies understand and are probably already using.
