This brochure is provided to assist parties involved in preparing for and responding to a passenger vessel emergency or casualty. For this purpose, an overview of existing legal instruments and guidelines, as well as tools, resources and insights are given. The underlying causes leading to the ship’s distress situation  arenot considered. What is of primary concern is what must take place once the ship is in distress and the ability of passenger vessel personnel and SAR responders to deal with  the potential scale of the emergency. It is imperative that coastal authorities and passenger vessel operators maintain an open dialogue to identify response resources in the areas where an individual passenger vessel is operating and to harmonize contingency planning and response.
