IMO's Maritime Safety Committee (MSC) approved the e-navigation Strategy Implementation Plan (SIP) in November 2014.
The SIP provides a framework and a road map of tasks that would need to be implemented or conducted in the future to give effect to five prioritized e-navigation solutions:
- improved, harmonized and user-friendly bridge design;
- means for standardized and automated reporting;
- improved reliability, resilience and integrity of bridge equipment and navigation information;
- integration and presentation of available information in graphical displays received via communication equipment; and
- improved communication of vessel traffic services (VTS) Service Portfolio (not limited to VTS stations).
A number of tasks have been identified for development and completion during the period 2015 to 2019.
The MSC approved Guidelines on Harmonization of test beds reporting, aimed at harmonizing the way the results of testbeds are reported to the Organization.

Norway contributes to shaping the future of shipping
The globally leading nations on autonomous maritime operations came together today for the very first time. They have now launched a cooperation to exchange knowledge and work towards common guidelines for future development. Norway takes part.
Changes in navigation passing the Maaloy bridge
The Norwegian Public Roads Administration will carry out necessary maintenance on the Måløy bridge (Måløybrua) from 31 July 2020 to September 2021. The sailing draft will periodically be lower than normal and the sailing pattern must therefore be temporarily changed.
