Essentially these are to keep mariners and ships safe, to aid operations and to protect our marine environments.  Knowing what is required when, where and for who becomes increasingly complex.

Other zone overlays include:

  • ECA, EEA, MARPOL & Bunker
  • Ports, Terminals, Anchorages, Restricted Zones
  • EEZ, Territorial Waters and High Risk Areas.
