Marine Notice: Statutory Radio Surveys On Irish Sea-Going Vessels

Marine Notice: Statutory Radio Surveys On Irish Sea-Going Vessels

#MarineNotice - The latest Marine Notice from the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport (DTTAS) advises that it has established a panel of authorised surveyors to conduct statutory radio surveys on Irish sea-going vessels, including fishing vessels.

This panel is established from 1 October 2014 till 1 October 2017. Owners of vessels in the following categories requiring a periodical/annual radio survey should contact a panel radio surveyor to arrange these surveys:

• Irish fishing vessels of 15 metres length overall or more,

• Irish domestic trading passenger ships of Classes B, C, D, II(A), III, and VI,

• Irish domestic trading cargo vessels of 300GT or more, but less than 500GT.

On completion of such surveys, the panel surveyors will inform the Marine Survey Office (MSO) with regard to the issue of any required statutory certificate to the vessel.

In general, from 1 January 2015 the MSO will not issue statutory certificates to vessels which have not completed the required statutory radio survey. Owners of vessels requiring an 'initial' radio survey should contact the MSO.

Operators of vessels where the statutory certificates are issued by a Recognised Organisation on behalf of the DTTAS should continue to utilise the services of the Recognised Organisation for the completion of these statutory radio surveys.

Contact details for the panel of surveyors are included in the annex to Marine Notice No 58 of 2014, a PDF of which is available to read or download HERE.
