Safety Notice for Immersion Suit Examination

Safety Notice for Immersion Suit Examination
Subsequent to Class News 09/2019, this is a reminder that SOLAS Regulation III/20.7.2 requires all immersion suits to be carefully examined during monthly inspections of lifesaving appliances. The manufacturers’ instructions for maintenance should also be followed, including the use of the correct zipper lubricant when specified.

This reminder follows a safety notice issued by the Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI) highlighting further instances of unserviceable immersion suits being found during inspections.
