NAVTEX Manual (2017 Edition)

£ 15,00



NAVTEX is an international automated direct-printing service for promulgation of navigational and
meteorological warnings and other urgent information to ships. It is one of the two principle methods
used for broadcasting maritime safety information in accordance with the provisions of the International
Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea, 1974, as amended. It has been developed to provide a low-cost,
simple and automated means of receiving maritime safety information and Search and Rescue alerts on
board ships at sea and in coastal waters.
This manual is intended, primarily, for use by maritime Administrations and others concerned with
the preparation and broadcasting of maritime safety information. It will also be of interest to seafarers,
shipowners and others who need to receive such information in order to safely go about their business
at sea.
