The UKHO reports that its digital publications have been approved for use in place of paper equivalents by the USA, Lithuania and Belgium.

Its electronic-Nautical Publications (e-NPs) and ADMIRALTY Digital Publications (ADP) can now be used on board ships sailing under the flags of those states, while still remaining compliant with the IMO’s SOLAS carriage requirements.

As a result of these latest approvals, the UKHO claims that over 79 per cent of the global fleet is now authorised to use digital maritime publications rather than hardcopies. The publications cover topics such as sailing directions, light and fog signals, radio signals, and tidal movements.

“We are delighted that the USA, Lithuania and Belgium have joined most of the world’s leading Flag States in approving the use of ADP and e-NPs to meet SOLAS carriage requirements,” said Christine Trickett, senior product manager, publications, at the UKHO.

“All US, Lithuanian and Belgian flagged ships can now benefit from the speed, accuracy and ease-of-use of ADP and e-NP.  What is more, over three-quarters of the global fleet can now draw upon the benefits of the digitalised versions of important publications, helping to support safe and efficient navigation around the world.”
