Statutory Alert: Amendments to the IAMSAR Manual to come into effect on 1 July, 2013.

January 06 2013

Applicability: All shipowners, operators and managers

Amendments to the International Aeronautical and Maritime Search and Rescue (IAMSAR) Manual will come into effect on 1 July. 2013*. These are detailed in the IMO Circular, MSC.1/Circ. 1415.

The amendments reflect recent changes made to the carriage requirements for radiocommunication equipment on ships, and include significant updates to volume III of the Manual.

SOLAS regulation V/21 requires all ships to carry an up-to-date copy of Volume III.

Shipowners and ship managers should therefore ensure that ships under their management have the updated version of the Manual on board.

* The changes were approved at the 90th session of the IMO Maritime Safety Committee (MSC90) in May 2012.
