Maritime Rules Part 25
Current version of Part 25
This rule applies to:
- commercial vessels of over 12 metres in length
- commercial vessels that operate outside the enclosed limit, and foreign vessels in New Zealand waters.
However, it does not apply to vessels that operate only on a river away from tidal influences, and commercial fishing vessels that are 6 metres or less in length overall that operate within two miles of the coast.
Part 25 sets out requirement for the carriage of charts, tide tables, and other nautical information.
This Part implements New Zealand’s obligations under Chapter V of SOLAS 74 regulation 21, International Code of Signals, and regulation 27, Nautical charts and nautical publications.
