UHF Radios Regulation

November 2012, the IMO’s (International Maritime Organization’s) Maritime Safety Committee set out a number of measures designed to improve fire safety at sea, including the mandatory provision of specific types of handheld two-way radios for firefighting operations.

This mandate means ships must carry firefighting radios that are explosion-proof or intrinsically safe.

Vessels constructed on or after 1 July 2014 must already carry these radios, but for ships constructed before 2014, compliance becomes mandatory on 1 July 2018.
