What is the MCA’s guidance on backup arrangements for ECDIS?

MIN 445 state that the MCA considers that the following will meet the adequate back-up requirements for ECDIS: (1) an independent, fully compliant second ECDIS unit, connected to ship’s main and emergency power supplies; or (2) an appropriate folio of paper nautical charts (as stated in the footnote SOLAS Regulation V/19. 2. 1. 5).
