The use of a magnetic compass is considered an essential instrument for safe navigation and it is mandatory by maritime law for all commercial vessels. Periodic maintenance and adjustment (if necessary) of magnetic compasses is an essential requirement and Riviera Charts have been offering a compass adjustment and certification service for a number of years.
Irrespective of regulations and the size of your vessel, Riviera Charts can assist you with the required periodic compass adjustment and validation of your deviation card. Working with a network of compass adjusters we are able to offer you a swift service at competitive rates almost anywhere. In France we are delighted to be supported by Christine Lassiège, one of the only two female compass adjusters in Europe. Christine completed her apprenticeship and qualified as an adjuster sponsored by Riviera Charts and continues to practice based in Antibes, France.
