LRIT Conformance Testing

The Long Range Identification and Tracking (LRIT) regulation requires operators of ships regulated by SOLAS contracting governments and engaged on international voyages, including passenger ships, cargo ships over 300gt, and Mobile Offshore Drilling Units (MODUs), to provide a compliant terminal for the transmission of LRIT information.

Pole Star is the world leader in LRIT testing and, to date, has completed more than 40,000 LRIT tests on behalf of global ship operators. Pole Star is an Authorised Testing ASP for over 90 Flags and provides operators with a convenient, secure and easy-to-use web-based testing platform, allowing them to initiate a test and review its progress at any time.

Once tested, Pole Star is authorised to issue Conformance Test Reports (Certificates) on behalf of most Flags.
