How to Register Your Beacon in Malta

How to Register Your Beacon in MaltaCamilleri Marine #406MHz Weekend


As mentioned in the previous article, they have saved thousands of lives over the years, and here’s a few reasons why:

  1. Fast, accurate positioning.
  2. Long battery life.
  3. They transmit a distress signal for a minimum of 24 hours.
  4. They will transmit a signal from anywhere on earth, so long as the antenna has a clear line of sight to the sky (for example, satellites will not receive a signal from a beacon in a cave).
  5. There is no charge for activating your beacon in a genuine distress situation.
  6. All of the above relates to beacons that have been properly serviced and registered.


It is vital that all beacon owners register their device with trusted companies such as Camilleri Marine / Marine Electronics Malta for Maltese owners. In fact, Camilleri Marine is the only authorized company commissioned by Ocean Signal and ACR to perform emergency beacon registrations on devices such as EPIRBs and PLBs.


If a beacon’s registration is up to date, it greatly speeds up the rescue process by providing information about you, your vessel (EPIRBs), and your activities. So, what does a SAR team learn from a properly registered beacon? Here are a few examples:

  1. Your contact details – One of the first steps is to try and make contact to gather more information, and to ensure it isn’t a false alarm
  2. Contact details of next of kin, or persons who know details about your activities such as a business partner
  3. Size of vessel
  4. Likely number of people on the vessel, allowing the SAR team to make an informed decision on what resources may be needed
  5. Details of your journey – your planned route, departure date, and arrival date etc.

Avoid the stress and let Camilleri Marine handle it for you! Remember: A Registered EPIRB will get found a lot faster than an unregistered EPIRB.
