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 1878.
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
To submit additions or amendments to the Index:
International SARCP Index
National maritime operations centre (NMOC)
Kites Croft Business Park
Entries should be made for all passenger ships using the SAR data provider system in accordance with the guidelines, ie ships which trade through many SAR regions. Entries for other passenger ships trading internationally will also be accepted. Entries should include:
SAR data provider identity
SAR data provider’s 24-hour contact telephone number.
SAR data providers are also requested to ensure that the index is kept up-to-date by checking it at intervals and submitting any amendments required.
