There is a possibility of high-risk observations related to BNWAS if it is not properly operated and maintained. F.e. "The BNWAS was typically being activated by the 2nd Mate (with password), not the master as required.". To avoid the possibility of such observations ensure the following:

  1. BNWAS password is not posted near the equipment and is known only to Master.

  2. Master personally switches it ON and OFF.

  3. BNWAS is kept ON while at anchor also.

  4. Timings of ON/OFF are logged in deck log book.

  5. Post a note near the BNWAS that " Only Master is authorized to operate BNWAS"
