On board Vessel Fire Fighting Communication

The Maritime Safety Committee (MSC), in its 91st session adopted the following amendment to SOLAS regulation II-2/10 regarding fire fighters’ communication:

“For ships constructed on or after 1 July 2014, a minimum of two two-way portable radiotelephone apparatus for each fire party for fire-fighter's communication shall be carried on board. Those two-way portable radiotelephone apparatus shall be of an explosion-proof type or intrinsically safe. Ships constructed before 1 July 2014 shall comply with the requirements of this paragraph not later than the first survey after 1 July 2018.“
