NTC’s vision is that IWT has to have a maximum of focus on regulations that are necessary for innovation as well as on regulations that could potentially impact the existing fleet of vessels. At the same time Police regulations should not be neglected, since these guarantee a higher safety level.

It is NTC’s mission to be pro-actively involved in the work that is centered around the European Standard of Technical Requirements for Inland Navigation vessels: ES-TRIN.

The objectives of the NTC mainly concerns participation in the meetings of the European Committee that draws up standards in the field of inland navigation (CESNI) and participation in the European working group on technical requirements (CESNI/PT).
