Do you have your ATEX-certified radios, to comply with the new Safety At Sea Regulations?

From July 2018 all ships in British waters will be required to equip themselves with the relevant number of ATEX two-way radios.

New Fire Safety SOLAS regulation

Under the new SOLAS regulation II-2/10, The Maritime Safety Committee has decreed that, in order to comply with new fire safety regulations, all ships – including cruise ships and private super yachts – need to have a specified number of firefighters relative to the number of crew and size of the ship.

And each party of firefighters on board must have at least two ATEX-certified radios for communications during an emergency.


ATEX radios

ATEX radios are not only designed to withstand hazardous conditions, but they are also designed not to cause a hazard: for example, they do not create any internal sparks, which could cause ignition.

Audiolink has a range of ATEX radios, which are suitable for on-board usage, to meet your ship’s requirements:

  • The Hytera PD795Ex and the PD715Ex portable DMR Radios. These models have been designed to meet the European ATEX directives, FM standards and IEC standards – perfect for tough environments that require advanced, intrinsically safe devices. Moreover, the radios offer high-quality audio and assured communication based on Hytera’s leading DMR Tech


  • The MOTOTRBO™ DP4000 Ex Series ATEX radios from Motorola Solutions. These radios provide high-quality communications and comprehensive user safety, with features such as Intelligent Audio, Transmit Interrupt and Lone Worker, whilst adhering to best-in-class ATEX specifications, allowing use when in environments containing potentially explosive gas and dust
