The present DNV standard was developed with the intention to give necessary requirements that would apply to the performance of various maritime simulator systems; the STCW convention requires that such simulators, when they are used either for mandatory simulator-based training, or as a mean to demonstrate assessment/competence, or to show continued proficiency required by the same convention, are subject to approval by the relevant maritime administration, in accordance wit the Reg. 1/12 of STCW convention. This DNV standard hereby proposes one of the ways of carrying out above noted approval. Its purpose is to ensure that the simulations which have been provided by the maritime simulator include an appropriate level of behavioral as well as physical realism, as per the assessment and training objectives. The publication starts with a list of changes, followed by the application and certification information defining the scope of certification and listing the documentation. The next part provides the overview of the maritime simulator equipment and instructor/assessor facilities; the other parts of the booklet address bridge and machinery operation, radio communication, handling of dry and liquid cargoes, ballast handling, safety and security, dynamic positioning, VTS operation, operation of the survival craft and rescue boat, operation of the offshore crane and ROV.
