4.3. category 3-operating efficiency, which is lower than the category 1 or category 2.5. Navigation feature category by the owner or possessor of the application approved by the national joint stock company "Latvian maritime administration" hydrographic service (hereinafter-Hydrographic Service).
6. Aids to navigation performance determines the percentage using the following formula: efficiency = KL-BLU – – – – – – – – – – x 100% where UP THERE-the total duration of the navigation features (number of days); BLU-the time when the navigation feature was not available (number of days).
7. Navigation feature, depending on the usage of the fixed nature of light and colour, as well as assign a unique identifying number that is published in the hydrographic service in "fire and mark waters of the Republic of Latvia". Expenditure is constantly updated with the hydrographic service in "notices to Mariners" published information. 8. Any changes to the navigation (both planned and unplanned) AIDS to navigation of the possessor (the operator, owner) into line with the hydrographic service. 9. After use the navigation features are classified into the following groups: 9.1. Visual AIDS to navigation;
9.2. other navigation features. 10. After Visual AIDS to navigation, the relative positions of the shape, colour or light emitted signal determines the location of the ship or ship's orientation and related sea port waters. 11. type of Visual AIDS to navigation are: stationary 11.1 navigation features: 11.1.1 the lighthouse;

Aids to navigation lights used in five colors: white, red, green, yellow and blue. Each alarm system uses no more than three colors. 51. The blue color is used only in exceptional cases with different color lights it is not possible to ensure the safe navigation of the port or in its immediate vicinity. 52. the adjoining lighthouse and ugunszīm for choosing different light signals. 53. the navigation features area light receiver eye should not be greater than 0.1 Lux and it must be reduced to 0.01 Lux, if the background is very dark. 54. the navigation features fire automatically or manually turn on the 24-hour dark days, as well as limited visibility (up to two sea miles). Ports, as well as areas with intense movements of the navigation features can turn on continuous fire mode of operation. 55. The fire vision distance selected taking into account the specific characteristics of the area, the shipping lanes away from shore and other circumstances that may affect the safety of navigation. The fire in the distance of visibility with the hydrographic service. 56. Aids to navigation surface uses the following colors: 56.1. ordinary colors-black, white, green, yellow, Red;
56.2. If necessary reinforce the visibility of the navigation features on the background, colors and fluorescent-orange colors-red, yellow, green, Orange;
56.3. use blue emergency wreck buoy, and if this rule 56.1 and 56.2.. color referred to do not provide sufficient visibility of the navigation feature. 57. In some cases, increasing maritime safety navigation features allowed the painting with two colors on the vertical bar.
