London P&I Club Issues Guide to ECDIS Management

That’s a good article but I didn’t see a link to the guide.

It’s here:
Is your ECDIS contributing to safe navigation or introducing risk?

In my experience ship’s crew will require a good set of procedures to ensure the ECDIS is configured properly. Manual position plotting, safety contour, route checking and XTE are all key.

It’s a mistake to expect captains to know how to make the switch to ECDIS.

For one don’t keep a foot in each camp, get rid of the paper charts, ECIDS requires 100% focus to be used properly. The paper charts divert too much time and attention.
