Relevant for design offices, shipyards, suppliers, owners/managers, flag states.
The following regulations are relevant in this context:
- Directive 2014/90/EU on Marine Equipment Directive (MED) applies to equipment to be placed on board EU ships for which approval (certification) is required.
- IMO Resolution MSC.302(87) addresses the adoption of performance standards for Bridge Alert Management (BAM).
This resolution is now introduced as requirement for navigation equipment in MED; see also below. The technical requirements applicable to a specific type of equipment are specified in implementing acts to the Marine Equipment Directive, issued by the EU as implementing regulations. The first regulation (EU) 2017-306 entered into force on 16 March 2017.
The introduction to section 4 for Navigation Equipment in this regulation states that Resolution MSC.302(87) shall be considered, as applicable, for all navigation equipment. MSC.302(87) has been added as a performance requirement in column 2 of the table in section 4 for most of the equipment listed. However, no further information or guidance is given in MED or the implementing regulation as to which parts of MSC.302(87) the navigation equipment is expected to comply with.
Furthermore, for the testing standard IEC 62923-1 Bridge Alert Management, operational and performance requirements, methods of testing and required test results is still under development with a CDV (Committee Draft for Vote) status as per July 2017. It is expected to be issued at the end of 2017 or early 2018. This news has therefore been prepared to describe DNV GL’s interpretation of BAM compliant equipment, and the remainder of this document is in an appendix, which is divided into two parts:
- Scope for assessment of BAM compliance (based on MSC.302)
- DNV GL’s recommended approach to verification of BAM compliance
As there is still no approved testing standard for Bridge Alert Management (BAM) for navigation equipment, DNV GL approval will be based on the procedure specified in the second part of the appendix of this news.
- Scope for assessment of BAM compliance (see PDF page 3)
- DNV GL’S approach to verification of BAM compliance (see PDF page 4)
- IMO Resolution MSC.302(87) – Adaptation of performance standards from Bridge Alert Management
- IEC 62288 (2014) – Presentation of navigation-related information on shipborne navigational displays – General requirements, methods of testing and required test results
- IEC 61162-1 (2016) – Digital interfaces – Part 1: Single talker and multiple listeners
- IEC 61924-2 (2012) – Integrated navigation systems – Part 2: Modular structure for INS – Operational and performance requirements, methods of testing and required test results
