The International Association of Ports and Harbors (IAPH) supports the proposal on ship route plans presented on the IMO NCSR 10, IAPH announced on its website.
The 10th meeting of the IMO Sub-Committee on Navigation, Communications and Search and Rescue (NCSR 10) has been taking place over the course of this week and closed Friday 19 May.
The key item of note is a joint submission made by numerous European countries and co-sponsored by IAPH, IHMA, and IPCSA proposing amendments to the Electronic Chart Display and Information Systems (ECDIS) performance standards to facilitate a standardised digital exchange of ship’s route plans.
The proposal suggests a standardised and cyber-secure method for route exchange from ship-to-shore and from shore-to-ship to be added as an additional functionality in ECDIS to increase safety, reduce administrative burden and improve the efficiency of operations, as well as reduce the environmental impact.
The paper proposes that the Sub-Committee consider and finalise the draft amendments to the resolution and submit draft amendments to MSC 108 for adoption.
