International agreements dictate that EPIRBs must be programmed for the country under the flag of which a vessel sails or of which the vessel owner is a resident in order to register the beacon with that country’s SAR authorities. Our ACR EPIRB/PLB Programming Service requires that we have the vessel’s MMSI number and country of registration. The vessel name may also be programmed into the unit if desired.
Some countries have additional or alternative requirements; we will contact you if more information is necessary.
Please provide your country and vessel name in the Order Notes during checkout.
