Navarino is proud to join the Comité International Radio Maritime (CIRM). CIRM is the leading international association for marine electronics companies, promoting technology to improve the safety of life and efficient conduct of vessels at sea.

CIRM was originally founded in Spain in 1928 by 8 companies engaged in the application of radio to the maritime service. It was reconstituted in Belgium in 1947 and subsequently moved to London. It is now the principal international association for companies engaged in maritime electronics, with current membership of some 100 companies from 29 nations worldwide.

CIRM is one of the nine original international bodies accredited in 1961 as a non-governmental organisation in consultative status to the International Maritime Organization (IMO). CIRM is a Sector Member of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU-R and ITU-T), and is a Liaison Member both of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and of the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).

CIRM exists to promote the application of electronic technology to the safety of life and efficient conduct of vessels at sea. It strives to foster relations between all organisations concerned with electronic aids to marine navigation, communications and information systems.
