Intertanko Guide to Safe Navigation (2nd Edition-2021) released


published on 28 December 2021 459 -

Shipping has evolved significantly over the years. Research in maritime safety and operations over the past few decades has been intensive and has resulted in significant improvements. Chart carriage requirements are now satisfied by using Electronic Chart Display Information Systems (ECDIS), which require careful handling and functional expertise by the end users. When used correctly, this technological leap offers a high level of navigational safety, while at the same time reducing the workload and increasing situational awareness.

INTERTANKO’s Guide to Safe Navigation (Including ECDIS) has become the standard reference publication used by navigators. The first edition was published in 2017 and through the combined efforts of industry multidisciplinary subject matter experts, this second edition has been enhanced to reflect current best practice and legislation to ensure
that it continues to maintain its position as a definitive reference guide for modern-day navigators in the vessel’s wheelhouse.
