Safety Alert: Voluntary global recall of Kannad Marine SAFELINK auto and manual EPIRBs.

25 January, 2016

Applicability: All shipbuilders, owners and operators

Kannad Marine has instigated a voluntary global recall program for its SAFELINK auto and manual emergency position indicating radio beacons (EPIRBs).

This is due to a potential issue where the SAFELINK EPIRB’s yellow body plastic may prematurely age when subjected to specific environmental conditions. This has the potential to impact on its long-term effectiveness in the field and could result  in the beacon not operating in an emergency situation.
Orolia Limited, Kannad Marine’s owner, has released a Recall Procedure, available here, which has further details, and includes a link for owners to follow and complete.
