National Inland Navigation Forum (NINF)

NABO is an active member of this informal forum which brings together organisations with navigational interests, with meetings often having invited representatives of waterways authorities.

NINF members include AWCC, BM, CBOA, GOBA, RBOA, IWA, TBA and DBA. Meetings ensure regular dialogue between these organisations and especially those concerned with waterways covered by CRT and the EA.

Over the past year (2018) much discussion has revolved around the possible inclusion of EA’s navigational responsibilities into CRT – NABO is one of the few organisations which has expressed concerns about this, feeling that CRT has yet to prove that it can effectively cope with its current responsibilities!

NABO is committed to work together with other waterways representive groups, recognising their expertise in specialist areas, but maintaining our own independence.
