Where: For maritime use on recreational crafts and small fishing vessels (<14m); in these cases the beacon is registered as equipment of the vessel concerned.
Free movement: Yes. However the use of PLB on board of Portuguese flag vessels requires an application for national license. The PLB must be registered and programmed with MMSI assigned to that particular vessel
The owner must inform the Administration (IPTM) when the PLB is dismantled/deactivated/discontinued or not used on board anymore. Information on final destination must be sent to IPTM
