1 Application of SOLAS V/15 IACS Unified Interpretation UI 181 – BDEAP

2 Application of SOLAS V/15 BDEAP Bridge Design, Equipment Arrangement and Procedures

3 IACS U I BDEAP The content of Regulation 15 The purpose of IACS BDEAP The role of the human element – The bridge system – Bridge system failures The approach and structure of BDEAP Rules – Requirements – Guidance notes – Notes – Documentation – Tests and trials Appendices Regulation 15 - Improving Safety of Navigation

4 SOLAS V - Regulation 15 Decisions which are made for the purpose of applying the requirements of regulations 19, 22, 24, 25, 27 and 28 which affect – bridge design – design and arrangement of navigational systems and equipment on the bridge and – bridge procedures shall be taken with the aim of:

5 Aims of regulation facilitating the tasks to be performed by the bridge team in navigating the ship safely 2. promoting safe bridge resource management 3. enabling the bridge team to have access to essential information 4. indicating the operational status of automated functions 5. allowing for effective decision making by the bridge team 6. preventing excessive work 7. minimizing the risk of human error

6 IACS U I is developed to serve as a common reference document for the interpretation and implementation of SOLAS V/15 for the benefit of: Maritime administrations and Classification societies - ensuring a complete and unified approval Ship owners, Shipyards and Designers - giving guidance and predictable approval procedures Navigators - providing workplaces meeting user requirements Safety of navigation – reducing the risk of human errors

7 The Human Element An integral part of the total bridge system

8 The Bridge System comprises 4 vital elements:  The Mariner  The Technical system  The Man-machine system  Operational procedures

9 The navigation bridge system The Mariner With the ability to evaluate, decide and execute the decisions taken for safe performance of bridge functions

10 The navigation bridge system The Mariner The Technical System Designed to provide sufficient information and the controls needed for safe operation of the functions dedicated the bridge system

11 The navigation bridge system The Mariner The Technical System The Man-machine System Ensuring that the operational part of the technical system is designed with due regard to human mental and physical capability

12 The navigation bridge system The Mariner The Technical System The Man-machine System Operational procedures Established to ensure that the total bridge system performs efficiently within safety limits under all operating conditions

13 Bridge system failure Human errors Related to: Qualifications Quality Selection of personnel Situation caused errors Related to: Poor workplace design Lack of human engineering Intricate procedures required to compensate for poor technical solutions

14 Bridge system failure The Mariner The Technical System Operational procedures The Man-machine System

15 Human error in bridge operations Operator responsibility? “80 % of all accidents are caused by Human-Errors” 80 % of all accidents are caused by failure in the bridge system

16 IMO instruments Safety of bridge operations SOLAS V – Regulation 15

21 IACS U I A Requirements The requirements are made for the purpose of ensuring that application of requirements of regulations 19, 22, 24, 25, 27 and 28, which affect bridge design, the design and arrangement of navigational systems and equipment on the bridge and bridge procedures, meet the relevant aims specified in SOLAS V/15 The requirements cover applicable parts of MSC/Circ.982 and relevant IMO resolutions

22 IACS U I A Guidance note Give guidance as to how the requirements may be met by acceptable technical solutions or other remedies when applicable. A guidance note given does not in any way exclude alternative solutions that may fulfill the purpose and intention of the requirement providing other requirements and the overall bridge functionality are not adversely affected.

23 IACS U I Notes. Notes are used to give useful information which does not necessarily affect the approval in relation to regulation 15, but may affect the choice of compliant solutions when relevant.

24 IACS U I There are two appendices attached to the BDEAP standard: Appendix 1 contains three individual annexes for clarification and consideration of: – the aims of regulation 15 – the documents referred to by regulation 15 and the regulations to be applied, cross referencing the individual aims of regulation 15 and the regulations affected. – the effect of MSC/Circ.982 on the requirements of regulation 22 “Bridge navigation visibility”

25 IACS U I Appendix 2 contains examples of location of main equipment on the bridge – Focusing on principles for location of equipment for allowing a long centre console to separate the front workstations

26 IACS U I – 181 Appendix 1, Annex 1 Clarifying the aims of regulation 15 Example: AIM 15.4 Indicating the operational status (4) of automated functions (1) and integrated components (2), systems and/or sub-systems (3).1 Relevant automated functions – Steering a set course – Plotting of ship’s position in an electronic chart system.2 Relevant integrated components – Heading control unit – Electronic chart display and information system (ECDIS).3 Relevant sub-systems:  Track control system  Integrated navigation systems (INS), including  Grounding avoidance system for automatic route-keeping

27 IACS U I – 181 Appendix 1, Annex 2 Identifies the scope, purpose and main requirements of guidelines and standards referred to and regulations addressed by Regulation 15, which include: – MSC/Circ. 982 – IBS – INS – Regulation 19 – Regulation 22 – Regulation 24 – Regulation 25 – Regulation 27 – Regulation 28

28 IACS U I – 181 Appendix 1, Annex 3 ”Harmonizing” Regulation 22 and applicable guidelines in MSC/Circ 982 The main (only) difference is: – Specified fields of vision related to the ”conning position” in Regulation 22 are related to the workstation for navigating and manoeuvring in the Circular The BDEAP harmonizes the regulation and the guidelines by specifying that workstations providing the fields of vision required for safe conning may be used as an alternative conning positions when there is a need for additional information from equipment installed at such workstation.

29 Safety of Navigation Implementation of SOLAS V/15 Improving the working conditions Reducing operational failures

30 Field of vision - conning position 225° Horizontal field of vision from the conning positions close to the front windows and at the front workstations 500 m/2 ship’s length vertical field of vision forward of the bow Man Standing when working in paper charts Nav/Man/ConnMon/Conn/Nav Steer Route planning Safety - GMDSS Docking Conn
