IAMSAR Manual Vol. III: Mobile Facilities II962E
by IMO - International Maritime Organization
This is the definitive Maritime Search and Rescue manual, required on board every ship. IAMSAR provides a single, global standard for search and rescue operation. Most importantly it describes the practice-related details, so that when communication isn’t possible different parties can understand intentions. It ensures those inhabitants of the maritime environment all play by the same rules when it comes to performing search and rescue.
