To ensure that effective research into COLREGs takes places, and that the knowledge and skills gaps are accurately identified, two online surveys has been developed.

The surveys are not a test and all responses are kept anonymous, the purpose of the survey's is merely to gather as much information as possible on all the different interpretations of the COLREGs rules that exist today. Your responses to the surveys will be used to develop a new teaching methodology for COLREGs to make learning and applying COLREGs at sea simpler.

The first survey is for Maritime Professionals (seafarers, maritime lecturers etc.) The second survey is for Non-professionals (Amateurs sailors etc.)
