emergency positioning indicating radio beacon (epirb)


An EPIRB is an Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon, which is used as a distress alerting system, indicating to SAR authorities both the identity and position of a person or a vessel, which is in grave and imminent danger and requires immediate assistance. Every EPIRB is pre-programmed with a unique identity before it reaches the customer. This is done by the manufacturer or, in some cases, the distributor. The identity includes a 3 digit country code. This is the country that takes responsibility for storing that particular EPIRB’s registration details. In most cases this is the country to which the vessel is flagged. The country programmed into your EPIRB can be found from its identity label where usually all the necessary markings are, except the vessel's name.
