About notices to mariners (chart corrections)
Notices to mariners and chart corrections are distributed to inform seafarers about changes in Department of Transport produced nautical charts.
They are a means of keeping charts up-to-date with information of a safety or navigational nature.

- Advice: Notices issued to advise the mariner of temporary navigational information considered important to safe navigation.
- Warnings: Notices issued to advise the mariner of marine hazards such as reported navigational aid outages.
- Event: Notices issued to advise the mariner of approved aquatic event and fireworks displays.
