What are the UK statutory requirements relating to the mandatory use of routeing schemes?

Under SOLAS regulation V/10. 7 (which is mandatory for UK ships under The Merchant Shipping (Safety of Navigation) Regulations 2002), a ship must use a mandatory ships’ routeing system adopted by IMO as required for its category or cargo carried and in accordance with the relevant provisions in force, unless there are compelling reasons not to use a particular ships’ routeing system. Any such reason must be recorded in the ship’s log.
