GMDSS Implementation in the U.S.


GMDSS Implementation in the U.S.

The Pacific Northwest Maritime Institute will be available to answer any questions regarding GMDSS and STCW - 95 Training at their booth November 18 - 20, 1999 at the Workboat NW show.

As of February 1, 1999, all vessels greater than 300 gross tons and passenger vessels greater than 100 gross tons and carrying more than 12 passengers are required to carry Global Maritime Distress and Safety Systems (GMDSS) along with the appropriately licensed crew. Fishing vessels and small passenger vessels have been granted a waiver by the FCC for an indefinite period. The FCC will undertake a new rulemaking procedure to determine the extent to which these vessels should comply with GMDSS rules in the future. This seminar will focus on:

  • What is GMDSS and why is it important?
  • How will GMDSS save your life?
  • Enforcement of GMDSS regulations
  • GMDSS false alerts
  • Status of shoreside GMDSS
