LR Consolidates Watch Rules

Lloyd's Register (LR) has announced new rules governing navigational arrangements for periodic one-person watch. The new notations, NAV and NAV1, which now form part of LR's Rules and Regulations for the Classification of Ships, replace the existing notations LNC (A) and LNC (AA).

The new rules were developed as a result of a three-year, EC-sponsored research project known as ATOMOS (Advanced Technology to Optimize Manpower Onboard Ships). The project's objective was to improve the competitiveness of the EC commercial fleet through the application of advanced technologies and their integration with suitable manning, optimum crew composite and operational strategies. LR's role in the project included responsibility for considering the integration of navigation, cargo handling and the control and monitoring of machinery for operation by one person from a centralized ship control station, under normal conditions.
