Search and rescue co-operation plans international index

This file may not be suitable for users of assistive technology.Request an accessible format.


All passenger ships must carry plans for co-operation with search and rescue (SAR) services. Copies of the plans are held by all relevant SARservices. For passenger ships which trade through many SARregions copies are held by a SARdata provider.

The international SARco-operation plans index enables users to identify the SARdata provider for each ship’s plan.

Please note that only ships which trade internationally are listed here. For details of ships trading only in the UK SARregion, contact any UK coastguard centre, or refer to MSN 1783.

Ships are listed alphabetically by name with the following details:

  • the ship’s radio callsign
  • the maritime mobile service identity
  • the name of the company operating the ship (as defined in SOLASregulation IX/1)
  • the name and 24-hour contact telephone number of the SARdata provider holding the ship’s SARco-operation plan

Entries should be made for all passenger ships using the SARdata provider system in accordance with the guidelines, ie ships which trade through many SARregions. Entries for other passenger ships trading internationally will also be accepted. Entries should include:

  • ship’s name
  • callsign
  • MMSI
  • company identity
  • SARdata provider identity
  • SARdata provider’s 24-hour contact telephone number.

SARdata providers are also requested to ensure that the index is kept up-to-date by checking it at intervals and submitting any amendments required.
