Why e-Nautical Publications

e-NPs are designed to meet SOLAS carriage requirements, contain the same information as their paper equivalents and are approved for use by the Flag States of over three quarters of ships trading internationally. Unlike their paper counterparts, each e-NP allows bridge officers to take advantage of accurate electronic updating and quick information access through simple search functionality. Additionally, the new e-Reader snapshot function allows crews to view, save and print e-NP pages and any applicable NMs and addendums, which can be used to support passage planning.

 

Fast and accurate NM updates

e-NPs are updatable, electronic versions of official ADMIRALTY Nautical Publications such as Sailing Directions and the Nautical Almanac. This means that bridge crews can download and apply electronic weekly Notices to Mariners (NMs) updates to publications in just a few seconds every week, freeing their time to focus on other important duties. This functionality can also help to improve the accuracy of passage plans; giving decision makers more confidence on the bridge.

 

Easier access to important information

Simple search functionality gives users quick access to important planning information. The e-Reader snapshot functionality also helps bridge crews to view, save and print e-NP pages and any applicable NMs and addendums, which can be used to support passage planning.​
