The Oil Companies International Marine Forum (OCIMF) launched its latest information paper, which provides guidance on how to improve policies and procedures concerning the safe use of Electronic Chart Display and Information Systems (ECDIS).
BIMCO adapts the SHIPMAN 2009 agreement for use with autonomous ships. Yet, it is highlighted that the lack of actual autonomous ships currently in operation will mean ongoing adjustments as the industry forges ahead with its pioneering projects.
The regulatory framework of the shipping industry is improving so that all challenges arising can be either prevented or dealt with. Yet, what happens with the cyber risks? The ISM Code is now more important than ever, to ensure that vessels report any identified cyber risk, and become cyber resilient.
BIMCO informed that a sub-committee under the IMO has forwarded three documents for adoption in June.

This year’s Navigation, Communication, Search and Rescue sub-committee (NCSR 6) took place from 15-25 January in London.
