What is the GMDSS?
The GMDSS is an internationally recognized distress and radio communication safety system for ships, replacing the previous ship to ship safety system which relied on a manual Morse code system on 500 kHz and voice radiotelephony on Channel 16 and 2182 kHz. The GMDSS is an automated ship to shore system using satellites and digital selective calling technology. The GMDSS is mandated for international ships by the international Maritime Organization (IMO) safety of Life of at Sea Convention (SOLAS), 1974, as amended in 1988, and carries the force of an international treaty. The procedures governing use are contained in the International Telecommunications Union Recommendations and in the international Radio Regulations, and also carry the force of an International Treaty. The GMDSS regulations are contained in 47 C.F.R Part 80, Subpart W.
