One more standard released by DNV GL classification society and dealing with the personnel competences. The document is mainly focusing on the performance areas of the officers treated as responsible persons for ship operation, course and speed of a ship in cold weather condition, i.e. when the temperature falls below zero Celsius and/or when sailing in the ice infested waters - the whole time frame from voyage planning phase to the moment when the ship leaves the area, is covered. The publication is focusing on the navigational as well as normal operational matters, when all of the crew members remain on board the vessel. It should be noted that personal survival and emergency evacuation techniques in cold weather conditions are not part of the scope of the present standard. The document contains a set of requirements related to the competence for navigation various ice-conditions and ice-infested areas all over the world. The target group for this standard are the ship's officers that are considered responsible for safe navigating of the vessel in the conditions stated above in this text. Again, pretty regular arrangement of the document, containing introduction with brief explanation of the scope, taxonomy and competence requirements.
