You must comply with this code if you operate a vessel.
The code is intended for communications between ships, aircraft and authorities ashore during situations related to the safety of navigation and persons; it is especially useful when language difficulties arise. The code is suitable for transmission by all means of communication, including radiotelephony and radiotelegraphy.
Vessel operators must have a copy of the code on board.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information and to ascertain the level of compliance that may be required.
