Why engage a professional, qualified compass adjuster ?
Effective correction, or compensation, of the marine compass for any deviation error found during the compass swing requires an understanding of the earth’s and ship’s magnetic fields and an ability to differentiate between the permanent magnetism of the ship’s hard iron and the induced magnetism of the ship’s soft iron.
AMI professionals have the necessary expertise to recognize this and possess the practical knowledge of the workings of the marine compass and its correctors. International standards for magnetic compasses and compass adjusting are governed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Maritime Organization (IMO).
