The country is situated in south of the equator,Tanzania hopes to be able to improve its economic status through maritime trade in the future. Because the country is a major maritime power in East Africa requires marine modern navigation equipment which in many ways i.e. ECDIS. This research paper is aimed to studythe factors that hinder thesafety of marine navigation, andthe requirement of new standard ECDIS to mitigate marine navigation disasters as have been analyzed.The paperuses data of Tanzania’sIndian Ocean, Lake Victoria, Lake Tanganyika and Lake Nyasa.The researchanalyzes data qualitatively, tables and charts descriptivelybased on the collected data. The analysis shows that there is limitation and failures of ECDISapplication due tothe lack of thefollowing surveyed water,modern navigation equipment, ECDIS on the ship below 150tons navigating in lakes, thescale to keep track of weight limits for small boat, investment in modern navigation equipment and meteorological equipment for inland water bodies. Therefore these are factors contributing to poor performance of maritime transport industry and hence decline of maritime safety navigation. The paper recommends establishing ofNational Maritime Bureau or the Waterway Bureau and theuse ofUPS to protect the sensitive electronics from variations in the voltage supplied to them. For sustainable development of marine navigation and hencefacilitating shipping trade in Tanzania.
