A new three-year panel of authorised radio surveyors has been established by the Department of Transport following a call for applications this autumn.

The latest three-person panel — who will sit until 20 October 2023 — will conduct statutory radio surveys on existing Irish seagoing vessels, including fishing vessels, at locations around the island of Ireland.

Owners/operators of vessels requiring a periodical or annual radio survey should contact a surveyor to arrange these surveys.

On completion of a survey, the surveyors will endorse the vessel’s certificate as appropriate and/or inform the Marine Survey Office (MSO) regarding any required statutory certificate.

The MSO will not issue statutory certificates to vessels that have not completed the required statutory radio survey.

Owners requiring an ‘initial’ radio survey, which includes all flag-in and new-build vessels, must contact the MSO, preferably by email at [email protected]

Operators of existing cargo vessels which are in class with a recognised organisation (RO) may continue to utilise the RO’s radio survey services, should they so decide.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
