Details

All passenger ships must carry plans for co-operation with search and rescue (SAR) services. Copies of the plans are held by all relevant SAR services. For passenger ships which trade through many SAR regions copies are held by a SAR data provider.

The international SAR co-operation plans index enables users to identify the SAR data provider for each ship’s plan.

Please note that only ships which trade internationally are listed here. For details of ships trading only in the UK SAR region, contact any UK coastguard centre, or refer to MSN 1783.

Ships are listed alphabetically by name with the following details:

  • the ship’s radio callsign
  • the maritime mobile service identity
  • the name of the company operating the ship (as defined in SOLAS regulation IX/1)
  • the name and 24-hour contact telephone number of the SAR data provider holding the ship’s SAR co-operation plan
