ACR EPIRB Programming Service - for International use (MMSI)
requires that we have the vessel's MMSI number and country of
registration. The vessel name may also be programmed into the unit;
please provide this if desired. Some countries have additional or
alternative requirements; we will contact you if more information is
International agreements dictate that EPIRBs must be
programmed for the country under the flag of which a vessel sails or of
which the vessel owner is a resident in order to register the beacon
with that country's SAR authorities.

Maritime Mobile Service Identity (MMSI)
An MMSI is a unique nine-digit code set into your DSC-capable radio transceiver, AIS transceiver and/or EPIRB to identify your vessel or coast station. You need only one of these if you have multiple fixed DSC radios and/or AIS transceivers. You use the same MMSI for all DSC and AIS transceivers onboard the one vessel as it is a ship's identity.
