Changes to Search and Rescue Manual

The International Maritime Organization recently announced changes to the International Aeronautical and Maritime Search and Rescue (IAMSAR) Manual. Maritime Safety Committee (MSC) Circular 1415 describes the amendments that should become applicable on July 1, 2013.

The full circular (MSC.1/Circ.1415) can be found here (link to .pdf document).

All vessels that fall under SOLAS (including Amver vessels) should have the amendments on their ships by the July 2013 deadline.
