How do I register my EPIRB?

Once you have purchased your EPIRB you need to register it in your country. You need to provide contact information plus information about the vessel it is to be used on. This is vitally important because if the EPIRB is activated the search authorities in your country will try to make contact with you or other people you have listed to enable them to see if a rescue is required.

In the UK you need to register with the Maritime and Coastguard Agency, in the USA registration is through NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration).

For more information about where and how to register your EPIRB please contact your local supplier or see the country by country list on the Cospas-Sarsat website. EPIRB PLB
