You will be required to comply with this standard if you intend to navigate a ship or any other vessel on the high seas.
These regulations apply to all vessels operating on the high seas and all waters connected to the high seas and navigable by seagoing vessels. They aim to prevent collisions on the water by providing a comprehensive set of rules covering, but not limited to:
- Steering and sailing rules (for example, the conduct of vessels in sight of one another, or those in restricted visibility);
- Lights and shapes and their positioning; and
- Sound and light signals.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information and to ascertain the level of compliance that may be required.
