eMaritime Group plans forum on ECDIS changes

(SOUTHAMPTON, United Kingdom) — The eMaritime Group has announced a one-day conference to help the industry better understand the transition to the new IHO ECDIS S52 4.0. Will your ECDIS be legal from Aug. 31? Meet the manufacturers, express concerns and opinions and get the answers.

"We have spoken to many of our shipping company clients over the last year about the ECDIS 4.0 upgrade, and listened to their concerns. There seems to be a general confusion and in some cases panic about the changes in August. So we created this one-day conference to help clear up these issues and better informing company representatives to allow a smooth transition," said Mark Broster, eMaritime Group managing director.

The conference is free and will be held at eMaritime Group's headquarters near Southampton on Friday, July 7. The main aim of the day is to inform those who are involved in their company's ECDIS systems to learn more about why the change is taking place, what the changes are and how to make the required changes.

There will be representatives from leading ECDIS manufacturers on hand to answer any questions, as well as speakers from hydrographics and navigation, and ECDIS technicians.
