“NON-CONVENTION – RADIO INSTALLATION AMENDMENTS”
To any parties that who may concern,
Meetings of Non-conversation Rules & Regulations were held earlier in March, 2011.
Mr. Wong Tuong Keng, the Managing Director of United Ship Design Sdn. Bhd., acted as Technical Adviser of Sarawak and Sabah Shipowners Association (SSSA) has strived to apply for the amendment of Radio Installation Requirements.
The proposal eventually was adopted. Therefore, amendments has been made to the Radio Installation Requirements stipulated in Chapter IX of the Requirements & Technical Standard For Non Convention Cargo Ship Pertaining to Safety Construction, Radio, Life Saving Appliances & Equipment of Radio Navigation Aids.
This new amendment, which overides the previous version, is as follows:
