This article reports that a new benchmark for measuring safety in harbors has been announced by the Department for Transport, Local Government and the Regions (DTLR) of Great Britain. The benchmark, which gives guidance on a national standard by which harbor authorities can measure how they discharge their legal duties for the safety of navigation, is set out in the book "Guide to Good Practice on Port Marine Operations." The Port marine Safety Code gave harbor authorities until December 31, 2001 to complete implementation. The department already has confirmation from just under 90 that they have reached this milestone. Details on how to purchase the books from the DTLR were discussed.
