The GMDSS Manual is intended for use by ship personnel, shore operators, trainers, administrations, regulators and those concerned with ship communication. It includes the development and concepts of the GMDSS, components of the GMDSS carriage requirements and operational procedures, excerpts from the relevant Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) regulations, supporting resolutions and circulars, IMO performance standards and related ITU-R recommendations giving technical details of radio equipment among other communications matters.
