Solas Regulations

In some industries the performance requirements goes beyond the EN performance standards. The SOLAS regulations for inflatable life jackets standards (which came into force in July 2006) and apply to every cargo vessel and bulk carrier operating above 20° North and below 20° South, specify twin chamber systems with automatic light. The Solas regulations require every commercial vessel to carry at least one SOLAS approved immersion suit for every person on board, at all muster stations, and extra suits at any remote watchpoint or workstation. All suits must be clearly marked and easily accessible. All suits must be regularly maintained and annually serviced at a SOLAS approved service station.
