IAMSAR Manual Vol. I: Organization and Management (ebook) KH960E
by IMO - International Maritime Organization
Jointly published by IMO and the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), the three-volume IAMSAR Manual provides guidelines for a common aviation and maritime approach to organizing and providing search and rescue (SAR) services. Each volume (available separately in loose-leaf form, binder included) can be used as a stand-alone document or, in conjunction with the other two volumes, as a means to attain a full view of the SAR system. Volume I discusses the global SAR system concept, establishment and improvement of national and regional SAR systems and co-operation with neighbouring States to provide effective and economical SAR services.
The 2010 edition incorporates amendments that were adopted through 2009 by ICAO and the IMO Maritime Safety Committee. The 2008 amendments entered into force on 1 June 2009, and the 2009 amendments become applicable as on 1 June 2010.
