Statutory Alert: Revised guidelines for onboard operational use of ship automatic identification systems (AIS)
Applicability: All shipowners and managers

The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has published revised guidelines for onboard operational use of shipborne automatic identification systems (AIS), as Resolution A.1106(29).

These are operational guidelines, developed to promote the safe and effective use of AIS, and in particular to inform crews about their operational use, limits and potential applications. They should be taken into account when operating AIS.

Shipowners and managers should make sure that crews fully understand the guidelines and become familiar with operating the equipment and how to correctly interpret the data. A description of an AIS system, including components and connections, can be found in Appendix 1.

These guidelines consolidate and supersede the previous guidelines contained in Resolutions A.917 (22) and A.956 (23).
