    Standard Marine Communication Phrases, 2005 Edition 

    Under the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers, 1978, as revised in 1995, the ability to use and understand the IMO SMCP is required for the certification of officers in charge of a navigational watch on ships of 500 gross tonnage or more.
    In November 2001 the draft of the IMO Standard Marine Communication Phrases (SMCP) that had been adopted by the Maritime Safety Committee in 1997 was amended, following international trials, and adopted by the Assembly as resolution A.918 (22). This resolution revokes A.380 (X), by which the Standard Marine Navigational Vocabulary was adopted in 1977.

    The phrases are divided into part A and part B. Part A covers phrases to be applied according to the requirements of Table A-II/1 (minimum competence of officers in charge of a navigational watch on ships of 500 gross tonnage) of the STCW Code, and may thus be regarded as the replacement of the Standard Marine Navigational Vocabulary, 1985. This part is enriched by essential phrases concerning ship handling and safety of navigation to be used in on-board communications. Part B calls attention to other on-board standard safety-related phrases which, supplementary to part A, may also be regarded as useful for maritime English instruction.

    Accessing your IMO Digital Purchases

    From 1 May 2022, IMO moved to a new, hybrid version of the IMO Bookshelf, which enables browser-based access to IMO publications.

    Support for the existing Windows-based version of the IMO Bookshelf will continue until 30 June 2023, but no new purchases in this format can be made after 1 May 2022.

    Migration to the new system:

    • Migration can only take place once a customer has purchased an e-reader for the new IMO Bookshelf service from 1 May 2022.
    • Customers do not need to migrate their existing publications unless they choose to do so. Their Windows-based IMO Bookshelf products will remain available indefinitely, although technical support for the product will end in June 2023.
    • Users wishing to migrate must be using version 5.13 of the Windows-based IMO Bookshelf software.

    Users wishing to migrate their existing IMO publications to the new service, who has purchased an e-reader for the new IMO Bookshelf service from 1 May 2022, should contact us at books@ms-sc.org with the details of their IMO Virtual Publications account. We will arrange the migration with IMO.
