Regulations set down by IMO came into action at the beginning of this month. These regulations involved firefighters radios used aboard vessels. As suppliers of these radios, it is important for us to inform our customers of this regulation and also to assure you that all equipment being supplied to you actually comply with these standards.
SOLAS regulation II-2/10.10.4 requires that: “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 safety equipment survey after 1 July 2018.”
We are pleased to advise you that ALL radio’s sold on AMI Marines NEW website comply with the imposed IMO regulations.
