Passenger and Crew Count

Introduction/Additional information: 

The purpose of the Passenger and Crew Count message is for a ship to report the number of persons on board separated into passengers and crew, e.g., upon request by a competent authority.

 

Usage notes

  1. This message is addressed only; sent to the competent authority requesting the information.
  2. The total number of people onboard the vessel is the sum of the crew (anyone not a passenger) and passenger numbers.
  3. The Message Linkage ID can be used to link additional text (e.g., a separate text message). However, the same source MMSI needs to be included in both the Passenger and Crew Count and Linked Text messages).
  4. The UTC day and time fields reflect the time the message is prepared; the number of crew and passengers in the message shall be whatever they were at this time.
  5. If a message is received with a more recent day/time, then the older message should be discarded and the newer data used.
