A new ECDIS website www.ECDISRegs.com has been launched in association with ECDIS Ltd. The new website provides ECDIS related references, news and articles for the mariner to make current legislation clearer and easier to understand. The website has been created with help and support from international sources and in conjunction with ECDIS training company, ECDIS Ltd.
Mark Broster of ECDIS Ltd says,
“Finding relevant ECDIS legislation can be frustrating and time consuming, so this new website aims to provide all relevant information in one place. The site is supplemented with expert comment provided by the ECDIS Ltd team in order to help the mariner navigate and understand the mass of legislation that exists. The service is free to view, and has already proven to be very popular.”
Mike Pearsall from the ECDIS Ltd team, who monitors and updates the website added,
“The website was designed not only to provide all the information regarding ECDIS legislation that the mariner requires, but also to help them make sense of it all. To that end the team will endeavour to keep the site as up to date as possible, and many improvements are planned to further develop the site.”
ECDISregs aim to provide a full library of regulations, publications and documentation pertaining to ECDIS (Electronic Chart Display and Information System) and related subjects. Use of this site is free and supported by banner advertising. The publications included on this website remain the intellectual property of their respective authors/owners.
