ISSA CEVNI – Eu Code for Inland Waterways


This fifth edition of CEVNI brings together the best practices from the existing traffic regulations of the river commissions and UNECE member States. The new edition updates existing regulations including: the rules of the road, the berthing rules, provisions for small craft, Inland Automatic Identification System (AIS), prevention of pollution of water, as well as introducing a new Annex on a Safety checklist for bunkering fuel.

Our handbook clearly illustrates the rules for inland waterways and the necessity for recreational sailors to have a working knowledge of the rules and have passed the CEVNI Test that is required to use the waterways in Europe.


Code Europeen Des Voies De Navigation lnterieure (CEVNI) – The European Code for Inland Waterways was first established in 1962, following approval by the Sub-Committee on Inland Water Transport created by the Inland Transport Committee of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE).

CEVNI contains the core rules applicable to the traffic on inland waterways in the UNECE region such as marks and draught scales on vessels, visual signals on vessels, sound signals and radiotelephony, waterway signs and markings, rules of the road, berthing rules, signalling and reporting requirements as well as prevention of pollution of water and disposal of waste. These harmonized rules constitute the legal and technical basis for national inland waterway codes in UNECE member States.
