Italy has become the latest Flag State to approve the use of ADMIRALTY e-Nautical Publications (e-NPs) and ADMIRALTY Digital Publications (ADP) as SOLAS-compliant alternatives to paper publications. This decision means that all 1,300 Italian-flagged ships and over 81% of the global fleet are now able to use digital publications to meet SOLAS carriage requirements.
e-Nautical Publications (e-NPs) are electronic versions of official ADMIRALTY Nautical Publications, such as Sailing Directions and the Nautical Almanac. They allow bridge crews to download and apply electronic weekly Notices to Mariners (NMs) in just a few seconds every week, improving efficiency and accuracy on board.
The UKHO’s latest film shows how this feature of e-NPs can reduce time spent updating Sailing Directions in comparison to paper publications. During this demonstration, which looks at a route planned between Shanghai and Rotterdam, a task that could take hours is reduced to seconds.
