LRIT Conformance Testing (Application Service Provider ASP)

The Long Range Identification and Tracking (LRIT) system is a designated International Maritime Organization (IMO) system designed to collect and disseminate vessel position information received from IMO member States ships that are subject to the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS).
The Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) Convention Chapter V, Regulation 19-1 (SOLAS V/19-1), makes LRIT mandatory for passenger ships, including high speed craft, cargo ships of 300GT and above and MODU (rigs). Ships must automatically report their identity, date & time and position 4 times daily, Ships constructed after 31st December 2008 must be fitted with LRIT equipment, Ships constructed before then will be phased in depending on their operational area. Ships approved for GMDSS sea areas A1 & A2 or A2 & A3 must comply no later than the first radio survey after 31st December 2008; Ships operating in Sea Area A4 must comply no later than the first radio survey after 1st July 2009.
Ships operating only in sea area A1 and fitted with Automatic Identification System (AIS) are exempted. Ships operating in near-coastal Sea Area A2 not fitted with Inmarsat C GMDSS will be required to fit a compliant terminal. Ships operating in polar Sea Area A4 above 70 degrees latitude will require a non-Inmarsat terminal that operates in conjunction with a low-earth orbit Communication Service Provider (CSP) approved by the Flag in conjunction with its appointed Application Service Provider (ASP).
The LRIT communication capabilities of the on board equipment will have to be certified by an ASP (Application Service Provider) recognized by the Administration or an authorized LRIT Testing ASP.
No shipboard visit is required as all testing is done remotely via satellite.
