What are the basic SOLAS chapter V requirements relating to the carriage of charts and nautical publications?

Under SOLAS regulation V/19, all ships, irrespective of size, must have nautical charts and publications to plan and display the ship’s route for the intended voyage and to plot and monitor positions throughout the voyage. However, pending the ship’s implementation date for the mandatory carriage of ECDIS (see below), an electronic chart display and information system (ECDIS) may be accepted by the flag State Administration as meeting the chart carriage requirements.
