The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has issued a complete revision of its comprehensive handbook on the global maritime distress and safety system (GMDSS), the GMDSS Manual.

The intent of the new GMDSS Manual (formerly the GMDSS Handbook) is to provide, in a single comprehensive publication, an explanation of the principles on which the GMDSS is based, the radio communication requirements and recommendations for its implementation, the operational performance standards and technical specifications to be met by GMDSS equipment, and the procedures for and method of operation of the various radio services which form the GMDSS and the Master Plan for the GMDSS.

The Manual is available from authorized distributors of IMO publications and via IMO’s Online Bookshop.
