To support the new requirement for certain types of domestic commercial vessels to be fitted with a float-free EPIRB, we will be conducting a focused inspection campaign to check and help operators to meet their obligations.

Marine inspectors will be conducting this inspection campaign over the period of 1 February to 30 April 2021. This will happen in conjunction with their regular inspections on domestic commercial vessels.
