Maritime radiocommunication examinations

In accordance with the International Radio Regulations, anyone who uses radiocommunications equipment on a seagoing vessel must be the holder of a licence and a certificate of competency permitting him or her to use the equipment in question. The examinations are organised by OFCOM.

Beacons in the maritime service must be properly registered so that, in case of distress at sea, the rescue process works correctly after the EPIRB has been activated.

Information on the examinations, examination dates, registration forms and on the list of organisers of courses is available only in German, Italian and French. Please click on the desired language above in the Navigation Menu. Only the information notice below is available in English
