Further Studies On the COLREGs (Collision Regulations)
MetadataShow full item record
The collision risk is one of the major reasons threaten safety at sea. The Collision Regulations (COLREGs) is the essential international arrangement which regulates the rules of the roads at sea. Being also a legal document, the language of the COLREGs is not so apparent for the end users (navigators) and this causes some misunderstandings and ambiguity. Many discussions on COLREGs have continued since its first submission related to its application. It seems unlikely to make a radical change on COLREGs even on its manner of introduction. So it would be better to improve new methods to ensure the effective use of COLREGs in particular in the field of education and training. It is aimed to review the existing studies on COLREGs and recent improvements in the maritime education, and investigate applicable and reliable solutions to reduce the negative impacts experienced during the application of the COLREGs.
