To have access to the IBRD located at www.406registration.com, Cospas-Sarsat policy requires that an official letter be sent to the Cospas-Sarsat Secretariat to request issue of user accounts for accessing the IBRD.
A letter using text similar to the template provided below should be completed. This letter also serves to appoint a national IBRD Point of Contact and must be signed by the national ICAO (International Civil Aviation Authority) or IMO (International Maritime Organization) representative.
The letter should also indicate whether the Administration wishes to allow registration of beacons with their country code in the IBRD. If so desired, beacon owners may be authorized to register their beacons directly, or via a central authority designated by the Administration. The national IBRD Point of Contact will be the resource person for all questions concerning beacon registration in the Administration (maritime (EPIRB), aviation (ELT) and personal locator beacons (PLB)).
