The IMO has issued MSC Circ. 1109 requesting member governments and international organisations to submit information and data on false security alerts and distress/security double alerts involving ships subject to the SOLAS Convention requirement to install a Ship Security Alert System (SSAS).

Members are encouraged to submit relevant experiences to the undersigned. Information received from members will be coordinated with that received by INTERCARGO and collated into a report to IMO, if appropriate.
