Questions & Answers
Questions & Answers
How do you arrange the programming of this EPIRB before shipping? Registration we do, but programming with the ships details is usually done beforehand. Jack Brown

No information is actually programmed into the unit at any point after its manufacture. When you receive the EPIRB you send your information (Including your MMSI number) to the UK Maritime and Coastguard Agency. In the event your EPIRB is activated, the Coastguard Agency will be alerted to a distress call coming from the unique ID associated with your EPIRB. This is cross referenced with the details of the vessel registered to that EPIRB, and the information will be passed on to the closest rescue authority.

Can I purchase for delivery in Dubai and can the device then be registered in UAE? John Taljaard

Whilst these will work all on an international scale, these EBIRBS are intended for vessels registered within the UK, and this is not something we are able to re program. It should still function, as In the event your EPIRB is activated, the UK Coastguard Agency will be alerted to a distress call coming from the unique ID associated with your EPIRB. This is cross referenced with the details of the vessel registered to that EPIRB, and the information will be passed on to the closest rescue authority. We do not have any involvement with the registration process, so If you need to change the information associated with your EPIRB, I would suggest contacting ACR, as they should be able to steer you in the right direction.
