Maritime simulator systems
|Publication Date:||1 June 2021|
The standard gives criteria for the simulated functions, the equipment and the environment, considered necessary for specified tasks in maritime operations.
This standard does not prioritize the reliability of specific equipment or software used in the simulator, e.g. redundancy, environmental testing nor maintenance. It is assumed that the simulator is built from parts of sufficient reliability.
It is assumed that the end user addresses the operation of the simulator (i.e. using the simulator for training and/or assessment in a training programme) in a quality standard system (STCW Regulations I/8). In such quality standard system the instructor and assessor qualifications (STCW Regulations I/6) shall be addressed and the course curriculum shall be approved by the relevant maritime administration (see the relevant standard of competence in STCW).
It is understood that the management of an end user ensures that the simulator complies with all additional mandatory requirements, e.g. electrical installation of such equipment, which are not covered in this standard.
Simulator types not covered in this standard: The society can issue a statement of compliance for simulators used to create realistic situations for some of the competence requirements listed in DNV competence standards or training courses certified according to DNV standard for certification of learning programmes in addition to industry approved standards.
