7/25/2016: Upcoming amendment to electronic charts and publications policy (NVIC 01-16)

In February 2016 the Coast Guard released Navigation and Vessel Inspection Circular (NVIC) 01-16: Use of electronic charts and publications in lieu of paper charts and publications. Through our own evaluation and a review of stakeholder feedback, we are aware that it has not allowed certain existing equipment to replace paper charts. Therefore, we are working to amend this policy and update third-party consensus standards.
