406 MHz Distress Beacon Registration


New routine regarding registration and updating of emergency transmitter ELT406

As of March 1, 2022, the Swedish Maritime Administration is the responsible authority for handling owner/holder contact information for ELT406 for Swedish-registered civil aircraft.

At the same time that the Swedish Maritime Administration takes over responsibility, new routines are introduced which mean that an owner/holder is responsible for administering (registering and updating) their information about ELT406 in the International Beacon Registration Database (IBRD).
