IMO invites industry to fully take part in the development of e-navigation. Gupreet Singhota, deputy director/ head of Operational Safety Security within the Maritime Safety Division of the International Maritime Organisation shares his invitation in an interview with eNav International. eNav International is the brand new platform launched by Geomares Publishing at

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.
