Don't wait to get your float-free EPIRB

Thursday 29 April 2021
It's been four months since the float-free EPIRB regulations came into effect. There are no more excuses for not having a float-free EPIRB installed on certain types of domestic commercial vessels.
Float-free EPIRB

We now expect vessels to meet this potentially lifesaving requirement. It takes time for a beacon to be delivered and properly installed. If your vessel is required to have a float-free EPIRB and you are yet to install one, contact your local supplier now. Remember, all EPIRBs must be registered with AMSA.

Penalties will apply.
