When does a compass need adjusting?
In accordance with the MCA regulations (Annex 13 - Adjustment of Compasses) a compass requires adjusting when:

  • they are first installed 

  • they become unreliable

  • the ship undergoes structural repairs or alterations that could affect its permanent and induced magnetism

  • electrical or magnetic equipment close to the compass is added, removed or altered

  • a period of two years has elapsed since the last adjustment and a record of compass deviations has not been maintained, or the recorded deviations are excessive or when the compass shows physical defects.

Compass Service & Repairs

Our MCA qualified Compass Adjusters can provide a service to all Ports in the UK and across the globe. Compasses can be taken back to our workshop for repairs if deemed necessary. We can provide old and new parts for broken or damaged equipment. It is a SOLAS requirement to have your compass fully adjusted and in good working order.

In November 2014 IMO approved amendments to SOLAS in the form of new SOLAS regulation XI-1/7, made it mandatory for all applicable vessels to carry portable gas detectors. We can provide, repair and maintain these. We have a wide range of BW Products so please contact for further details.
