Electronic navigation, although still relatively new, is becoming increasingly more common, particularly on commercial vessels. This handbook offers a wealth of detailed information about how different charting systems operate and answers the most commonly asked questions regarding electronic charts (ENC, RNC, DNC) and electronic chart systems (ECDIS, RCDS, ECS). The first resource to provide so much detail on all facets of ECDIS and Electronic Charting Systems, it is certain to serve as the bible for ECDIS users for years to come. It not only provides information for training programs but also for engineers maintaining ECDIS Systems in the field. The book will be of specific interest to those who need to know about selection, implementation, operational use, benefits, and management of these systems, without getting into the technical details of how ECDIS/GIS actually works.

This model course is designed to facilitate the delivery of training in order to promote the energy-efficient operation of ships. The course contributes to the IMO's environmental protection goals as set out in resolutions A.947(23) and A.998(25) by promulgating industry "Best Practices", which reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and the negative impact of global shipping on climate change. The course also covers essential subjects to develop management tools to assist a shipping company in managing the environmental performance of its ships. Therefore, the contents of the course reflect the guidance for the development of a Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP), resolution MEPC.213(63), adopted 2 March 2012.

Ice Navigation gives a thorough introduction and description of most aspects related to the operation of ships in polar and ice-covered waters. The subjects covered include geography, technology, environment, routing, and regulations. This will be an invaluable book for those operating ships - onboard and ashore - as well as those involved in planning maritime operations in remote and ice-infested regions. Ice Navigation covers the subject matter in the IMO Guidelines for Ships Operating in Polar Waters (Resolution A.1024 (26) adopted on December 2, 2009), as well as the issues described in the Standards of Training, Certification, and Watchkeeping Convention.

This Code of Safe Working Practices is intended primarily for merchant seamen on United Kingdom registered vessels. This consolidated edition brings together the previous Code and all subsequent amendments to Amendment 04 into one edition. Copies of the current edition of the Code must be carried on all UK ships other than fishing vessels and pleasure craft. A copy must be made available to any seaman in the ship who requests it, in accordance with the Merchant Shipping (Code of Safe Working Practices for Merchant Seamen) Regulations 1998. The Code details the regulatory framework for health and safety on board ship, safety management, and statutory duties underlying the advice in the Code and the areas that should be covered when introducing a new recruit to the safety procedures on board. Consolidates all issued information as of September 2004.

This model course is intended to provide the knowledge, skill and understanding of ECDIS and electronic charts to the thorough extent needed to safely navigate vessels whose primary means of navigation is ECDIS. The course emphasizes both the application and learning of ECDIS in a variety of underway contexts. The course is designed to meet the STCW requirements in the use of ECDIS, as revised by the 2010 Manila Amendments. It should be understood that this is a generic course which requires a structured and complementary on-board ship specific ECDIS familiarization for each shipboard ECDIS system on which the navigating officer serves. Those who successfully complete the course should be able to demonstrate sufficient knowledge to undertake the duties assigned under the SSP.

From the founding of the International Labour Organization (ILO) in 1919, it was decided that questions relating to seafarers should normally be considered by special maritime sessions of the International Labour Conference devoted exclusively to them, the first of which was held in 1920. The Maritime Labour Convention, 2006, an important new international Labour Convention, was adopted by the International Labour Conference at its 94th (Maritime) Session. Sometimes called a "bill of rights" for seafarers, the Maritime Labour Convention 2006 sets out seafarers rights to decent conditions of work and helps to establish conditions for fair competition for shipowners. It was designed as a global legal instrument that will become the 'fourth pillar' of the international regulatory regime for quality shipping, complementing the key Conventions of the International Maritime Organization (IMO). The Maritime Labour Convention, 2006 contains a comprehensive set of global standards, consolidating almost all the existing maritime labour Conventions and Recommendations that have been adopted since 1920 in a single new Convention with a new format and requirements that reflect modern conditions in the industry.

The Condition Assessment Scheme (CAS) for oil tankers was adopted in 2001 and is applicable to all single-hull tankers of 15 years or older. Although the CAS does not specify structural standards in excess of the provisions of other IMO conventions, codes and recommendations, its requirements stipulate more stringent and transparent verification of the reported structural condition of the ship and that documentary and survey procedures have been properly carried out and completed. The Scheme requires that compliance with the CAS is assessed during the Enhanced Survey Program of Inspections concurrent with intermediate or renewal surveys currently required by resolution A.744(18), as amended.--Publisher's description
