This Manual describes the structure and operation of the International SafetyNET Service. It is intended primarily for national Administrations and registered information providers, but may also be useful to the mariner who requires more operational information than is found in manufacturers’ equipment manuals.

This Manual describes the structure and operation of the International SafetyNET Service. It is intended primarily for national Administrations and registered information providers, but may also be useful to the mariner who requires more operational information than is found in manufacturers’ equipment manuals.

SOLAS regulation IV/12.2 states that “Every ship, while at sea, shall maintain a radio watch for broadcasts of maritime safety information on the appropriate frequency or frequencies on which such information is broadcast for the area in which the ship is navigating”.


At the request of the IMO Sub-Committee on Radiocommunications, the International SafetyNET Manual was first produced in 1994. The second edition was published in 2003 containing amendments endorsed by the Maritime Safety Committee (MSC) at its seventy-sixth session in December 2002 by MSC/Circ.1064.


At its seventh meeting in September 2005, the IHO’s Commission on the Promulgation of Radio Navigational Warnings (CPRNW)* established a working group to review all World-Wide Navigational Warning Service (WWNWS) documentation. The working group included representation from the WMO and prepared at first,
revisions to resolutions A.705(17), Promulgation of Maritime Safety Information, and A.706(17), World-Wide Navigational Warning Service. The proposed revisions of the resolutions were circulated to IHO Member States under IHB CL 104/2007, endorsed by the COMSAR Sub-Committee at its twelfth session in April 2008
and subsequently approved by the Maritime Safety Committee at its eighty-fifth session in November and December 2008 by MSC.1/Circ.1287 and MSC.1/Circ.1288, respectively.


The IHO CPRNW Working Group then prepared the revised Joint IMO/IHO/WMO Manual on Maritime Safety Information incorporating the revised information from resolutions A.705(17), as amended, and A.706(17), as amended. The revised text of the Joint IMO/IHO/WMO Manual on Maritime Safety Information was
circulated to IHO Member States under cover of IHB CL 70/2008, endorsed by the COMSAR Sub-Committee at its thirteenth session in January 2009, and subsequently approved by the Maritime Safety Committee at its eighty-sixth session in May and June 2009 by MSC.1/Circ.1310.


Continuing with the holistic approach of reviewing all the MSI documents from the top-down, the IHO WWNWS-SC Working Group prepared the third revision of the International SafetyNET Manual. The revised text of the International SafetyNET Manual was circulated to IHO Member States under cover of IHB CL 68/2009, endorsed by the COMSAR Sub-Committee at its fourteenth session in March 2010 and subsequently approved by the Maritime Safety Committee at its eighty-seventh session in May 2010 by MSC.1/Circ.1364, and came into force on 1 January 2012.


As part of its editorial review of all Maritime Safety Information documentation, the IHO WWNWS-SC has been reviewing the text of the International SafetyNET Manual. Further to the last meeting of the Sub-Committee held in August 2015 at the IHB in Monaco, work on this review has now been completed. A representative
from the WMO participated fully in the review. WWNWS-SC also received advice and guidance from the Secretariat of the Organization.


The review took into account the adoption by the IMO of changes to Promulgation of maritime safety information (resolution A.705(17), as amended), IMO/IHO World-Wide Navigational Warning Service Guidance Document (resolution A.706(17), as amended), and Joint IMO/IHO/WMO Manual on Maritime Safety Information (MSC.1/Circ.1310/Rev.1). These changes have been published as MSC.1/Circ.1287/Rev.1, MSC.1/Circ.1288/Rev.1 and MSC.1/Circ.1310/Rev.1 and came into force on 1 January 2015 and 1 January 2016 respectively.


This fourth revision of the International SafetyNET Manual took place following the first session of the Sub-Committee on Navigation, Communications and Search and Rescue (NCSR) in June and July 2014 and WWNWS6 in August 2014. Subsequently it was submitted to the WMO for approval prior to submission to the NCSR at its third session for endorsement and final approval by the MSC at its ninety-seventh session and publication as MSC.1/Circ.1364/Rev.1 with an entry-into-force date of 1 January 2018.

Annex 6 Procedure for amending the International SafetyNET Manual

A??s a specialized agency of the United Nations, IMO is the global standard-setting authority for the safety, security and environmental performance of international shipping. Its main role is to create a regulatory framework for the shipping industry that is fair and effective, universally adopted and universally implemented.

In other words, its role is to create a level playing field so that ship operators cannot address their financial issues by simply cutting corners and compromising on safety, security and environmental performance. This approach also encourages innovation and efficiency.

Shipping is a truly international industry, and it can only operate effectively if the regulations and standards are themselves agreed, adopted and implemented on an international basis. IMO is the forum at which this process takes place.
