Indonesia introduces new AIS regulation

The Indonesian Ministry of Transportation is introducing a new regulation from August 20, 2019 that requires all Indonesian and foreign-flagged ships sailing in Indonesian waters to install and activate Automatic Identification System (AIS).

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The Britannia P&I Club states that members are strongly advised to adhere to the new regulation from the Indonesian Authorities. Members requiring further information should contact their local agents or correspondents.

AIS is an automated, autonomous tracking system that helps with the exchange of navigational information between AIS-equipped terminals. This improves safety and operational efficiency of vessels.

In 2000, the IMO adopted a new requirement for all ships to carry AIS’ capable of providing information about the ship to other ships and to coastal authorities automatically. The regulation requires AIS to be fitted aboard all ships of 300 gross tonnage and upwards engaged on international voyages, cargo ships of 500 gross tonnage and upwards not engaged on international voyages and all passenger ships irrespective of size. The requirement became effective for all ships by 31 December 2004.  {/mprestriction}
