IMO Invites Industry to Advise on the Development of Maritime e-Navigation

Singhota warns that IMO chose to develop of the concept of e-navigation from a ‘user-driven’ standpoint. However, says Singhota: ‘The industry is represented by the international non-governmental organisations, which have a consultative status at IMO and this enables it to be fully involved in the development process.’

The lead body of IMO developing e-navigation, the Sub-Committee on Safety of Navigation, will next meet from 2 to 6 July 2012.  According to Singhota, enavigation has the potential to make a huge contribution to enhanced navigational safety and will have a positive effect on environmental protection and maritime safety in general, while simultaneously reducing the burden on the navigator.

The full interview with Gupreet Singhota will be published on eNav International.
