Since first published in 1977, the intention behind the ICS Bridge Procedures Guide has been to reflect current best navigational practice on commercial ships, operating in all sectors and trades. The Bridge Procedures Guide is generally acknowledged as the principal industry advice on safe bridge procedures. Consequently it is used as a reference publication by Masters, watchkeeping officers, shipping companies, training institutions and accident investigators worldwide. The target audience for this Guide remains, first and foremost, Masters and officers in charge of a navigational watch at sea.
Keeping the Bridge Procedures Guide up to date and relevant is a major responsibility, and an important example of the work which ICS undertakes on behalf of the international shipping industry. Technological and regulatory developments can contribute to making keeping a safe watch a complex and increasingly challenging responsibility. The purpose of the Guide therefore is to provide clear guidance on best practice approaches to watchkeeping that make safe and effective use of modern technology.
This fully updated fifth edition continues to embrace internationally agreed standards and recommendations adopted by the International Maritime Organization (IMO)
. The Guide also includes extensive checklists for use by companies, Masters and those officers responsible for developing ship specific checklists for bridge procedures. A new feature of this edition is the increased use of diagrams and highlighted text emphasising key points.
The 2010 amendments to the STCW Convention
have introduced inter alia enhanced Bridge Resource Management training for all officers in charge of a navigational watch, and stricter minimum rest hour requirements. This was a direct response to the recognition by regulators and accident investigators of the importance of the human element in ship safety.
New equipment and technology underlines the need for familiarisation with ship specific arrangements. ECDIS is a particular example of this, and this new edition of the Guide includes comprehensive ECDIS familiarisation checklists and guidance that cautions against over reliance on the system.
In addition to contributing to maritime safety, efficient and well planned sea passages are necessary for the economic health of the shipping industry. Together with new environmental requirements, including rules to reduce air emissions, there are additional pressures to ensure effective passage planning and efficient execution. This new edition continues to emphasise the importance of the passage planning process.
The Guide continues to stress the importance of effective bridge procedures to support the conduct of safe navigation, efficient ship operations and the prevention of pollution. Good practice on the bridge is the result of clear operational requirements established in the ship's Safety Management System and the Master's Standing Orders, effective management of trained and familiarised bridge personnel, and a thoroughly prepared passage plan on which the Bridge Team has been fully briefed.
The assistance of experts from ICS Member national shipowners' associations in the preparation of this Guide is gratefully acknowledged. Special thanks are due to Captain Paul Jones of BW Group who efficiently led the working group tasked with the review. This has ensured that the Guide remains relevant and maintains the high standard set by the previous editions. Other working group members were nominated by the shipowners' associations of Denmark, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Netherlands and the United Kingdom as well as by the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) and the International Marine Contractors' Association (IMCA).
Special thanks are also due to maritime administrations, accident investigators and colleagues from other maritime organisations who have offered recommendations or willingly given time and expertise to ensure that the Bridge Procedures Guide continues to offer the very best possible guidance on this critical subject.
