(Version 5)

1 General provisions

1.1 Scope and background

1.1.1 Scope

1.1.1.1 This document sets out the Technical specifications for the Long-range identification
and tracking system as specified in the Revised performance standards and functional
requirements for the long-range identification and tracking of ships (the Performance standards)
adopted by resolution MSC.263(84).

1.1.1.2 This part provides an overview of the LRIT system and the various specifications are
set out in the following six annexes:

.1 Annex 1 Technical specifications for the International LRIT Data


Exchange;

.2 Annex 2 Technical specifications for the International LRIT Data


Centre;

.3 Annex 3 Technical specifications for communications within the


LRIT system;

.4 Annex 4 Technical specifications for the LRIT Data Distribution Plan;

.5 Annex 5 Criteria for the location of the International LRIT Data Centre
and the International LRIT Data Exchange; and

.6 Annex 6 XML schemas.

1.1.1.3 In preparing the document, account has been taken of the provisions of regulation
V/19-1 of the 1974 SOLAS Convention and of the Performance standards.

1.1.2 Background

1.1.2.1 The Maritime Safety Committee, at its eighty-first session, adopted amendments to
chapter V of the 1974 SOLAS Convention in relation to the long-range identification and tracking
of ships. The amendments entered into force on 1 January 2008 and the LRIT system has been
operations since 00:01 UTC on 31 December 2008.

1.1.2.2 The LRIT system provides for the global identification and tracking of ships which are
required to comply with the provisions of regulation V/19-1.

I:\CIRC\MSC\01\1259-Rev-4.doc
MSC.1/Circ.1259/Rev.4
Annex, page 2

1.1.2.3 In operating the LRIT system, recognition should be given to international


conventions, agreements, rules or standards that provide for the protection of navigational
information.

1.1.2.4 The technical specifications for the International LRIT Data Exchange (IDE), within
the LRIT system, detail the routeing of LRIT information, LRIT request messages and system
messages between LRIT Data Centres (DCs).

1.1.2.5 The International LRIT Data Centre (IDC) is an element of the LRIT system that
receives, stores and disseminates LRIT information on behalf of Contracting Governments to
the 1974 SOLAS Convention. In the context of the LRIT system architecture, technical
specifications International LRIT Data Centre addresses the functional specifications for the IDC.

1.1.2.6 The IDC should be capable of receiving and processing LRIT information from all
ships, other than those that are required to transmit LRIT information to a National (NDC) or
Regional/Co-operative (R/CDC) LRIT Data Centres.

1.1.2.7 The IDC should accommodate any LRIT Data User not participating in a NDC or
R/CDC.

1.1.2.8 The specifications for data security throughout the network and protocols required for
transporting data from one network point to another are described in annex 3 on Technical
specifications for communications within the LRIT system.

1.1.2.9 Communication specifications within the LRIT system detail the messaging format
between LRIT components, data security throughout the network, and the protocols required for
transporting data from one network point to another.

1.2 General description of the system and definitions

1.2.1 LRIT system description

1.2.1.1 As described in Performance standards, the LRIT system consists of the following
components:

.1 the shipborne LRIT information transmitting equipment;

.2 the Communication Service Provider(s);

.3 the Application Service Provider(s);

.4 the DC(s), including any related Vessel Monitoring System(s);

.5 the LRIT Data Distribution Plan server;

.6 the IDE, and

.7 LRIT Data Users.

1.2.1.2 As described in paragraph 1.2 of the Performance standards, certain aspects of the
performance of the LRIT system are reviewed or audited by an LRIT Coordinator acting on
behalf of all Contracting Governments to the 1974 SOLAS Convention (Contracting
Governments).

I:\CIRC\MSC\01\1259-Rev-4.doc
MSC.1/Circ.1259/Rev.4
Annex, page 3

1.2.2 LRIT system operation

1.2.2.1 Paragraphs 1.2.2.1 to 1.2.2.11 provide a high-level overview of the LRIT system
architecture. The Performance standards provide further details on the functions associated with
each component of the system.

1.2.2.2 Tracking of any applicable ship begins with LRIT information being transmitted from
the shipborne equipment. The LRIT information transmitted includes the ship's GNSS position
(based on the WGS84 datum), time and identification, as described in Table 1 of the
Performance standards.

1.2.2.3 The Communication Service Provider (CSP) provides the communication


infrastructure and services that are necessary for establishing a communication path between
the ship and the Application Service Provider (ASP). The LRIT information transmitted from the
ship travels across the communication path set up by the CSP to the ASP.

1.2.2.4 The ASP, after receiving the LRIT information from the ship, adds additional
information to the LRIT message and pass along the expanded message to its associated DC.
Functionality required for the programming and communicating of commands to the shipborne
equipment is provided by the ASP.

1.2.2.5 The LRIT data, along with all the parameters added by the various LRIT
components, is described in the messaging section of annex 3 on Technical specifications for
communications within the LRIT system.

1.2.2.6 DCs should store all incoming LRIT information from ships instructed by their
Administrations to transmit LRIT information to that DC. DCs disseminate LRIT information to
LRIT Data Users according to the LRIT Data Distribution Plan (DDP).

1.2.2.7 The DDP contains the information required by the DCs for determining how LRIT
information is distributed to the various Contracting Governments. The DDP contains
information such as standing orders from Contracting Governments and geographical polygons
relating to Contracting Governments' coastal waters.

1.2.2.8 DCs process all LRIT messages to and from the IDE. The IDE processes all LRIT
messages between DCs. The IDE routes the message to the appropriate DC based upon the
address in the message and the URL/URI in the DDP. The IDE neither processes nor stores the
information contained within LRIT messages.

1.2.2.9 LRIT Data Users might be entitled to receive or request LRIT information in their
capacity as a flag State1, port State2, coastal State3 or Search and Rescue (SAR) service.

1.2.2.10 The LRIT Coordinator assists in the establishment of components of the LRIT
system (namely the IDE and IDC), perform administrative functions, and review and audit the
performance of certain components of the LRIT system.

1.2.2.11 Figure 1 provides a high-level illustration of the basic LRIT system architecture.

Annex 1

Technical specifications for the International LRIT Data Exchange

1 Overview

1.1 General provisions

1.1.1 General

1.1.1.1 The technical specification described in this annex should always be read together
with:

.1 regulation V/19-1;

.2 the Revised Performance standards and functional requirements for the


Long-range identification and tracking of ships;

.3 the Technical specifications for communications within the LRIT system;

.4 the Technical specifications for the LRIT Data Distribution Plan; and

.5 the XML schemas.

2 Description of the International LRIT Data Exchange

2.1 Overview

2.1.1 International LRIT Data Exchange

2.1.1.1 The International LRIT Data Exchange (IDE) is a message handling service that
facilitates the exchange of LRIT information amongst DCs to enable LRIT Data Users to obtain
that LRIT information that they are entitled to receive. The IDE routes messages between DCs.

2.1.1.2 The IDE, at a minimum, should be accessible to DCs via standard Internet protocol.

2.1.1.3 The IDE should store and archive message header information in a Journal(s) for
audit, billing and statistical analysis purposes.

2.1.1.4 The IDE does not:

.1 read the LRIT information contained in LRIT messages; and

.2 store or archive any LRIT information.

2.1.1.5 The IDE Operator should not be able to access the LRIT information contained in the
LRIT messages. Further the IDE Operator should not be able to tamper with the contents of the
LRIT messages flowing through the IDE.

2.1.1.6 The application of standing orders and other information contained within the DDP is
a function of individual DCs. The IDE should only read the message header content. The IDE
should not perform any filtering function on the LRIT information.

I:\CIRC\MSC\01\1259-Rev-4.doc
MSC.1/Circ.1259/Rev.4
Annex, page 8

2.1.1.7 As stated in the Performance standards, the message header refers to all
parameters with the exception of the parameters provided by the shipborne equipment.

2.1.1.8 The IDE should use the LRIT ID contained in either the Destination parameter, the
DataUserRequestor parameter or the DataUserProvider parameter included in the messages to
determine where to route the message. The IDE maps the LRIT ID to the URL/URI address of
the DC holding the information using the mappin2 g information contained in the DDP.

3 System architecture/High level design of the IDE

3.1 High level overview of system architecture

3.1.1 General composition of the IDE

3.1.1.2 The various blocks illustrated in the IDE block diagram represent functional modules
or sub systems of the larger system being the IDE itself.

3.1.1.3 Implementation of the IDE, for example, could consist of a high-speed computer
running IDE specific application software. The IDE application software could consist of various
software modules such as a DC interface module, message processing module, billing module,
Quality of Service (QoS) monitoring module, etc.

3.2 DC interface

3.2.1 Functional overview

3.2.1.1 The DC interface of the IDE should:

.1 receive LRIT messages from all DCs participating in the international LRIT
system;

.2 transmit LRIT messages to the appropriate DCs based upon message


processing performed by the IDE;

.3 maintain a secure communication connection to all participating DCs based


upon the communication and data security protocols outlined in annex 3 on
Technical specifications for communications in the LRIT system; and

.4 communicate, through an IP based network, with all DCs.

3.3 Message processing and handling

3.3.1 Message summary

3.3.2 General message processing functions

3.3.2.1 The IDE should have the functional capability to validate the DDP version# contained
in all received LRIT messages against the version number of the DDP it is using. If the IDE

I:\CIRC\MSC\01\1259-Rev-4.doc
MSC.1/Circ.1259/Rev.4
Annex, page 11

detects a mismatch in DDP version numbers, it archives the received message and transmits a
receipt message to the originating DC. It should not route the LRIT message (unless it is a SAR
message) that contained the invalid DDP version #. The ability to enable or disable this function
should be accessible from the IDE administrative interface.

3.3.2.2 The DDP version number checking function should have a time delay feature that
automatically disables the DDP version # checking for a period of time after the IDE has updated
its internal DDP. The period of time in which this function is disabled should be programmable
through the IDE administrative interface.

3.3.2.3 SAR messages (Message types 3, 5, 6, and 7 where ReceiptCode = 1 (no ship in
SAR SURPIC area)) regardless of the DDP version used, should always be routed. The IDE
should also consider as SAR messages (and pass without DDP version checking) message
types 1 and 2 with ResponseType = 4 even though these are not proper message parameter
combinations.

3.3.2.4 The IDE should implement industry standard virus checking and network security
procedures on all messages to prevent malicious attacks (e.g., Structured Query Language
(SQL) injection).

3.3.2.5 The IDE should only perform schema validation on messages addressed to the IDE.
All other messages should be routed to their destinations with only schema validation performed
on parameters used by the IDE for routeing and DDPVersionNum checking.

3.3.2.6 If the destination DC sends a SOAP fault message to the IDE, the IDE should send a
receipt message (Message 7) with the SOAP fault information contained in the Parameter:
Message, Value: Text field to the originating DC.

3.3.3 Generic message handling

3.3.3.1 Section 5 contains message handling and processing diagrams for received LRIT
messages.

3.3.3.2 The following generic process should be followed for all LRIT messages
(Messages 1 to 15) received by the IDE:

.1 perform a DDPVersionNum check, if the function is enabled, by looking at


the DDPVersionNum parameter contained in the message and comparing it
with the current valid DDP version as defined in the Technical
specifications for the LRIT Data Distribution Plan;

.2 LRIT messages that fail the check (mismatch of DDP version #s) should be
archived in the Journal and a receipt message with a receipt code of "9"
should be sent to the DC which transmitted the message;

.3 LRIT messages that pass the check (DDP version #s match) should be
further processed by looking at the MessageType parameter in order to
identify the particular type of LRIT message and handling the message as
detailed in the subsequent paragraphs; and

.4 when connectivity issues occur, attempt redelivery of a message 3 times


in 9 min to a DC.

3.3.3.3 The IDE should handle LRIT messages with the test parameter set to "1" as
described in the following table:

I:\CIRC\MSC\01\1259-Rev-4.doc
MSC.1/Circ.1259/Rev.4
Annex, page 12

Message Type Direction Message Handling action


Message Types 1 to Received The IDE should forward the LRIT message to the intended
6 and Message recipient and journal the message.
Type 7 not
addressed to IDE Sent The recipient component should not process or take any
action in response to the message.
Message Type 7 Received The IDE should journal the message.
Addressed to IDE
Sent The recipient component should not process or take any
action in response to the message.
Message Type 8 Received Normal the IDE should broadcast to all Data Centres and
DDP Notification journal.
Sent The recipient component should not process or take any
action in response to the message.
Message Type 9 Sent The recipient component should not process or take any
DDP Request action in response to the message.
Message Type 10 Received The IDE should journal the message.
DDP Update
Message Type 11 Received The IDE should journal the message.
System Status
Sent The recipient component should not process or take any
action in response to the message.
Message Type 12 Received The IDE should not process the message, but should journal
Journal it.
Message Type 13 Sent The recipient component should not process or take any
Pricing Notification action in response to the message.
Message Type 14 Received The IDE should not process the message, but should journal
Pricing Request it. No Pricing Update will be sent to the originating Data
Centre as a result.
Message Type 15 Received The IDE should not process the update but should
Pricing Update broadcast a Pricing Notification, with the test indicator set to
"1" to all Data Centres. The Pricing Update message and all
Pricing Notifications sent should be stored in the journal.
Sent The recipient component should not process or take any
action in response to the message.

3.3.4 Message handling for Messages 1 to 7

3.3.4.1 The IDE should process LRIT messages with Messages 1 to 7 by:

.1 identifying the message destination (e.g., LRIT Data User, DC) by looking
at the DataUserRequestor parameter for Messages 1 to 3, the
DataUserProvider parameter for Messages 4 to 6 or the Destination
parameter for Message 7;

.2 mapping the LRIT ID associated with the message destination to the


Internet address of the appropriate DC using the mapping information from
the DDP;

I:\CIRC\MSC\01\1259-Rev-4.doc
MSC.1/Circ.1259/Rev.4
Annex, page 13

.3 routeing the LRIT message to the appropriate DC or to all DCs in the case
of broadcast messages (i.e. SAR SURPIC request message);

.4 building a receipt message with a receipt code of 3 and route the receipt
message to the DC associated with the originating LRIT message if the IDE
determines that the DC intended to receive the message is not available
(not on line); and

.5 archiving everything in the messages except for the Shipborne equipment


parameters of messages 1, 2 and 3 as defined in Table 2 of annex 3 on
Technical specifications for communications within the LRIT system.

3.3.5 Message handling for DDP messages (Messages 8 to 10)

3.3.5.1 The IDE should process the DDP messages by:

.1 receiving update notifications for the DDP through the DDP notification
message (Message 8) automatically;

.2 building and transmitting a DDP request message (Message 9) for all


incremental updates (update type 2) of the DDP;

.3 receiving updated incremental DDP files through the DDP update message
(Message 10);

.4 updating the map of Internet addresses for all DCs accordingly; and

.5 archiving all messages in the Journal(s).

3.3.5.2 Additional details concerning the processing of DDP notifications and updates by the
IDE may be found in section 6.

3.3.6 Message handling for System status message (Message 11)

3.3.6.1 The IDE should:

.1 send out a system status message (Message 11) every 30 min to each DC
and the DDP server advising them on the health of the IDE, and archive the
transmitted message in the Journal(s); and

.2 on receipt of a system status message from the DCs and the DDP server,
process all system status messages by updating the system status
(i.e. if no message from a DC or the DDP server, generate a warning to the
IDE Operator), archiving everything in the messages in the Journal(s).

3.3.7 Message handling for R/CDC or IDC issued Journal message (Message 12)

3.3.7.1 The IDE should:

.1 receive and process Journal messages from all R/CDCs and the IDC; and

.2 archive all of the contents of the R/CDC and IDC Journals in the IDE
Journal.

MSC.1/Circ.1259/Rev.4
Annex, page 14

3.3.8 Message handling for Pricing messages (Messages 13 to 15)

3.3.8.1 The IDE should process the pricing messages by:

.1 receiving pricing update messages (Message 15) from the DCs;

.2 on receipt of Message 15, sending updated pricing notifications to all DCs


by means of the pricing notification message (Message 13) automatically;

.3 receiving pricing request messages (Message 14) from DCs;

.4 on receipt of Message 14, building and transmitting pricing files through the
pricing update message (Message 15) to the requesting DC(s); and

.5 archiving all messages in the Journal(s).

3.3.8.2 Further to paragraph 0, the IDE should reject a pricing update and send a receipt
message (Message 7) to the originator if:

.1 the attached pricing file fails schema validation; or

.2 the effective date within the pricing file is not a date in the future, as this
would violate pricing data consistency.

3.3.8.3 The pricing update should go into effect at 00:00 UTC of the effective date within the
pricing file.

3.3.8.4 The pricing file contained within the pricing update message from the IDE should
include the pricing lists that are currently in effect or should become effective in the future for all
LRIT Data Users.

3.3.8.5 Each LRIT Data User should have a maximum of one currently effective and one
future effective price list at any given time. A newly received pricing update should supersede
any pending future pricing update for that LRIT Data User.

3.4 DDP interface

3.7 Journal(s)

3.7.1 General

3.7.1.1 In accordance with paragraph 10.3.4 of the Performance standards, the IDE should
automatically maintain Journal(s) containing message header information only, meaning that the
shipborne equipment parameters of messages 1, 2 and 3 as defined in Table 2 of annex 3 on
Technical specifications for communications within the LRIT system should not be stored.

3.7.1.2 The purpose of the Journal(s) is to enable the IDE to trace, record and archive the
identification of all messages routed through the IDE to support:

.1 auditing;

.2 message handling/distribution;

.3 the necessary information required to aid in the resolution of billing


disputes; and

.4 usage and performance statistics.

Contracting Governments, the LRIT Coordinator and DCs.

I:\CIRC\MSC\01\1259-Rev-4.doc
MSC.1/Circ.1259/Rev.4
Annex, page 18

3.7.1.4 The Journal entries should be sent to the requesting entity, specified in paragraph 0,
offline rather than via the LRIT system using standard data storage media (for example CD or
DVD).

3.7.1.5 The requests for Journal information should be actioned by the IDE Operator within 5
working days.

3.7.2 Journal contents

3.7.2.1 The IDE logs all messages relating to the request for LRIT information in a manner
that facilitates the ready identification of individual transactions and provides an audit trail to
identify:

.1 each request message received from individual DCs;

.2 the communications with other DCs; and

.3 the subsequent delivery of the response message to the Requesting DC.

3.7.2.2 In particular, the Journal(s) should include:

.1 TimeStamp of receiving a message;

.2 TimeStamp of transmitting a message; and

.3 The complete message contents except for the Shipborne equipment


parameters of messages 1, 2 and 3 as defined in Table 2 of annex 3 on

3.7.3 Archiving

3.7.3.1 The IDE should maintain an archive Journal that can accommodate the ready
retrieval of Journal(s) data for at least one year or until such time as the Committee reviews and
accepts the LRIT Coordinator's annual report of the audit of its performance.

3.7.3.2 The archived Journal(s) should provide a complete record of the activities of the IDE
between two consecutive annual audits of its performance.

3.7.3.3 Key requirements for archiving include:

.1 redundancy should include the capability to load balance and cluster


between redundant servers (i.e. hot swap);

.2 resiliency communications should have more than one physical path;

.3 query the data can be retrieved; and

.4 integrity the data is preserved in its original state.

3.8 Diagnostic tools

3.8.1 General

order to allow the testing of the various modules or sub components that make up the IDE.

3.8.2 Diagnostic tool list

3.8.2.1 Network interface check: This test when executed should perform a check on all
network interface connections to verify proper operation. This would include all DC connections,
the IDE administrator interface connection and the DDP connection.

3.8.2.2 Journal storage check: This test should check the read and write function of the
storage space used to hold the Journal.

3.8.2.3 Message handling check: This test should check the message handling function's
ability to properly process different types of messages.

3.8.2.4 General health check: This test should check the general health of IDE
sub-components that are not checked by other tests.

3.8.2.5 Generate LRIT message check: This test should provide the administrative user with
the ability to generate any of the LRIT messages (with the test parameter set to "1") with any
valid parameter value and transmit the message to a connected DC or the DDP server.

6 IDE handling of DDP notifications and updates

6.1 General

6.1.1 Overview

6.1.1.1 The IDE will function as follows when it receives a DDP notification from the DDP
server:

.1 The IDE verifies that the LRIT ID in the PKI certificate is that of the DDP
server if not, a Receipt, receipt code 7, is generated and no further
processing takes place.

.2 The IDE issues a DDP request to the DDP server for the update.

.3 The IDE forwards the DDP notification to all configured DCs.

.4 The IDE will wait X min for a DDP update to be sent by the DDP server,
where X=15 for an immediate update and X=60 for a regular update.

.5 If no DDP update is received in X min, the IDE will issue another DDP
Request.

.6 The IDE will repeat steps 4 and 5 until within 30 min of when the DDP
version associated with the Notification is to become required. If the DDP
update has not been received by that time, an alarm will be generated to
trigger manual action by the IDE Operator.

.7 The IDE receives the DDP update from the DDP server.

.8 The IDE verifies that the LRIT ID in the PKI certificate is that of the DDP
server if not, a Receipt, receipt code 7, is generated and an alarm will be
generated to trigger manual action by the IDE Operator.

.9 The IDE processes the DDP update, updating its database as required.

6.1.1.2 The process described in paragraph 0 is illustrated in figure 3.

7 DC handling of DDP notifications and updates

7.1 General

7.1.1 Overview

7.1.1.1 The DC will function as follows when it receives a DDP notification from the IDE:

.1 The DC verifies that the LRIT ID in the PKI certificate is that of the IDE if
not, a Receipt, receipt code 7, is generated and no further processing takes
place.

.2 The DC issues a DDP request to the DDP server for the update.

.3 The DC will wait X min for a DDP update to be sent by the DDP server,
where X=15 for an immediate update and X=60 for a regular update.

.4 If no DDP update is received in X min, the DC will issue another DDP


request.

.5 The DC will repeat steps 4 and 5 until within 30 min of when the DDP
version associated with the Notification is to become required. If the DDP
update has not been received by that time, an alarm will be generated to
trigger manual action by the DC Operator.

.6 The DC receives the DDP update from the DDP server.

.7 The DC verifies that the LRIT ID in the PKI certificate is that of the DDP
server if not, a Receipt, receipt code 7, is generated and an alarm will be
generated to trigger manual action by the DC Operator.

.8 The DC processes the DDP update, updating its database as required.

8 IDE handling of pricing update messages

8.1 General

8.1.1 Overview

8.1.1.1 This section provides additional detail with respect to the IDE handling of pricing
update by describing various possible scenarios. The scenarios below describe the processing
logic performed when a pricing update is received by the IDE. In the scenarios, each major tick
mark implies a new day. The price lists have been assigned numbers for the purpose of
identification within the scenarios. These numbers are provided for illustration only and are not
intended to indicate a use of pricing version numbers.

8.1.2 Scenario 1: Price lists become effective at 00:00 UTC of the effective date

8.1.2.1 Price list 1 is issued on 5/1 at 06:00 with an effective date of 5/2. The IDE should
broadcast a pricing notification message (Message 13) to all DCs after processing the pricing
update message (Message 15) successfully. A subsequent pricing request message (Message 14)
received by the IDE should return a pricing update message (Message 15) containing price
lists 0 and 1 along with the current and future pricing lists for all other LRIT Data Users.

8.1.3 Scenario 2: There can be a maximum of one current and one future price list
per data provider (same effective date as previous price list)

8.1.3.1 Price list 2 is issued on 5/1 at 18:00 with an effective date of 5/2. The IDE should
broadcast a pricing notification message (Message 13) to all DCs after processing the pricing
update message (Message 15) successfully.

8.1.3.2 A subsequent pricing request message (Message 14) received by the IDE should
return a pricing update message (Message 15) containing price lists 0 and 2 along with the
current and future price lists for all other LRIT Data Users. Since a maximum of one future price
list is allowed per data provider, price list 2 overrides price list 1. Price list 1 should never
become effective.

per data provider (previous future price list is now effective)

8.1.4.1 Price list 3 is issued on 5/2 at 06:00 with an effective date of 5/3. The IDE should
broadcast a pricing notification message (Message 13) to all DCs after processing the pricing
update message (Message 15) successfully.

8.1.4.2 A subsequent pricing request message (Message 14) received by the IDE should
return a pricing update message (Message 15) containing price lists 2 and 3 along with the
current and future price lists for all other LRIT Data Users. Price list 0 is no longer sent because
it is no longer effective. Price list 2 is the current price list and price list 3 is the future price list
for this LRIT Data User.

price list)

8.1.5.1 Price list 4 is issued on 5/2 at 18:00 with an effective date of 5/4. The IDE should
broadcast a pricing notification message (Message 13) to all DCs after processing the pricing
update message (Message 15) successfully.

8.1.5.2 A subsequent pricing request message (Message 14) received by the IDE should
return a pricing update message (Message 15) containing price lists 2 and 4 along with the
current and future price lists for all other LRIT Data Users. Since a maximum of one future price
list is allowed per LRIT Data User, price list 4 overrides price list 3. Price list 3 should never
become effective.

8.1.6 Scenario 5: Price lists must have an effective date in the future

8.1.6.1 Price list 5 is issued on 5/3 at 06:00 with an effective date of 5/3. Price list 5 should
be rejected by the IDE and a receipt message (Message 7) with a receipt code of 7 should be
sent back to the originator. Price lists take effect at 00:00 UTC of the effective date. 00:00 UTC
of 5/3 is in the past therefore the effective date is invalid. The effective date must be greater
then the current date in order to keep pricing consistent. The pricing notification message
(Message 13) should not be sent to the DCs since the pricing update was rejected.

8.1.6.2 A subsequent pricing request message (Message 14) to the IDE should return a
pricing update message (Message 15) containing price lists 2 and 4 for this LRIT Data User
along with the current and future price lists for all other LRIT Data Users. Price list 0 is no longer
sent since the price list is no longer effective.

Technical specifications for communications within the LRIT system

1 Overview

1.1 General provisions

1.1.1 General

1.1.1.1 The technical specification described in this annex should always be read together with:

.1 regulation V/19-1;

.2 the Revised performance standards and functional requirements for the


long-range identification and tracking of ships;

.3 the Technical specifications for the International LRIT Data Exchange;

.4 the Technical specifications for the LRIT Data Distribution Plan; and

.5 the XML schemas.

2 Communication within the LRIT system

2.1 General

2.1.1 Overview

2.1.1.1 This annex describes communications within the LRIT system.

2.1.2 Message types

2.1.2.1 Communication within the LRIT system is based upon three types of messages
passing between the various LRIT system components: LRIT request messages; LRIT position
report messages; and other system messages.

2.1.2.2 Request messages are those requesting specific LRIT information.

2.1.2.3 LRIT position report messages are those containing LRIT information.

2.1.2.4 Other messages managed by the system include: receipt messages; DDP related
messages, system status messages, Journal related messages and pricing related messages.

2.1.2.5 This annex outlines the parameters associated with each message, as well as the
functional operational flow of the messages within the LRIT system.

2.1.2.6 Each LRIT component (with the exception of the shipborne equipment, which has its
own unique identifier) and each LRIT Data User has its own unique LRIT identifier (LRIT ID) that
enables other components within the LRIT system to identify that particular component or user.
The Organization should manage the list of unique LRIT identifiers (LRIT IDs) and be

2.2.1.2 Paragraphs 2.2.2 to 2.2.13 describe each of the LRIT messages. Each message is
presented in tabular format under the following column headings:

.1 Parameter provided by indicates the particular LRIT component that


provides the parameter information contained in the message;

.2 Parameter lists the various parameter names contained within the LRIT
message;

.3 Values lists the potential values of each associated parameter;

.4 Description provides brief information pertaining to each of the various


parameters in the LRIT message;

.5 LRIT segments indicates which of the LRIT communications segments of


Figure 1 contain each parameter; and

.6 Processed format defines the specific format for each parameter.

2.2.1.3 The definition of the various processed formats listed in the Processed format
column of the tables 2 to 13 are provided below. For full schemas for the various processed
formats, reference should be made to annex 6 on XML Schemas.

.1 n - indicates 1 ASCII decimal digit (0-9);

.2 n1nn - indicates 1 to n ASCII decimal digits;

I:\CIRC\MSC\01\1259-Rev-4.doc
MSC.1/Circ.1259/Rev.4
Annex, page 33

.3 c - indicates1 ASCII alphabetic character;

.4 c1cn indicates 1 to n ASCII alphabetic characters;

.5 xs:dateTime - represents a Timestamp: Timestamps used within the LRIT


system are of the XML Schema Datatype dateTime, as defined in
http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-2. The lexical representation of
dateTime consists of finite-length sequences of characters of the form:

'-'? yyyy '-' mm '-' dd 'T' hh ':' mm ':' ss ('.' s+)? (zzzzzz)?

Where:

'-'? yyyy is a four-or-more digit optionally negative-signed numeral


that represents the year; if more than four digits, leading zeros are
prohibited, and '0000' is prohibited (note that a plus sign is not
permitted);
the remaining '-'s are separators between parts of the date
portion;
the first mm is a two-digit numeral that represents the month;
dd is a two-digit numeral that represents the day;
'T' is a separator indicating that time-of-day follows;
hh is a two-digit numeral that represents the h; '24' is permitted if
the min and seconds represented are zero, and the dateTime
value so represented is the first instant of the following day (the h
property of a dateTime object in the value space cannot have a
value greater than 23);
':' is a separator between parts of the time-of-day portion;
the second mm is a two-digit numeral that represents the minute;
ss is a two-integer-digit numeral that represents the whole
seconds;
'.' s+ (if present) represents the fractional seconds;
zzzzzz (if present) represents the timezone (as described below).

LRIT timestamps must all be in UTC. An example of a valid timestamp


would be 2009-10-10T12:00:00Z or 2009-10-10T12:00:00.067Z.

.6 TEXT - unformatted alpha numeric text string in the English language.

2.2.1.4 All times in the LRIT system should be indicated as Universal Co-ordinated Time
(UTC) and all time stamps should use UTC with an accuracy of less than or equal to 1 second.
This may be achieved by synchronization with an NTP server (a list of publicly available time
servers can be found on the web site NTP.org) or other technical means.

2.2.1.5 All geographical positions and coordinate points (latitude and longitude) should be
based on the WGS 84 datum.

2.2.1.6 XML data formats will use UTF-8 to encode Unicode characters in the English
language.

2.2.1.7 All DCs should archive all LRIT Messages with the exception of the file attachments
associated with Message 10 (DDP Update) and Message 12 (Journal), in the case or RDC,
CDCs and the IDC, for at least one year and until such time as the Committee reviews and

I:\CIRC\MSC\01\1259-Rev-4.doc
MSC.1/Circ.1259/Rev.4
Annex, page 34

accepts the annual report of the audit of its performance by the LRIT Coordinator. However, the
archived LRIT Messages should provide a complete record of the activities of the centre
between two consecutive annual audits of its performance.

2.2.2 LRIT position report messages (Messages 1, 2 and 3)

2.2.2.1 Table 2 outlines the parameters associated with the LRIT position report messages.

2.2.2.2 NDCs and R/CDCs should format LRIT position reports in a processed format as
specified in table 2 before transmitting them to the IDE. The ship to CSP to ASP to NDC or
R/CDC communication path may transmit LRIT position report messages amongst themselves in
any format that they choose.

2.2.2.3 The ASP to IDC to IDE communication path should transmit LRIT position reports in
a processed format as specified in table 2. The ship to CSP to ASP communication path used
by the IDC may transmit LRIT position report messages amongst themselves in any format that
they choose.

2.2.2.4 The LRIT position messages are intended to provide each of the LRIT Data Users
(other than the SAR service) with the LRIT information pertaining to the ships being tracked by
them and to SAR services related information to enable the search and rescue of persons in
distress at sea.

2.2.2.5 The message header, as stated in the Performance standards, refers to all
parameters with the exception of the parameters provided by the LRIT shipborne equipment
(i.e. the Latitude, Longitude, TimeStamp1, and ShipborneEquipmentId parameters as shown in
Table 2).

2.2.2.6 The parameters provided by the LRIT shipborne equipment include: the Latitude;
Longitude; TimeStamp when the position was generated; and the ShipborneEquipmentId.

2.2.2.7 The processed format of these parameters as outlined in table 2 indicates how the
parameters should be formatted while the information is contained within the message and does
not specify the format of how the shipborne equipment transmits the information.

2.2.2.8 The ASPId parameter is the LRIT ID of the ASP that has received the LRIT
information.

2.2.2.9 The CSPId parameter is the LRIT ID of the CSP that has transmitted the LRIT
information to the ASP. This parameter is optional within the schema.

2.2.2.10 The MessageType parameter indicates the type of the message. LRIT components
such as the DCs should use this parameter to distinguish between the various types of
messages listed in table 1.

2.2.2.11 The MessageId parameter is a unique identification number that LRIT components
should use to identify individual messages within the LRIT system. The MessageId is generated
by linking the LRIT Component ID of the data provider (for segment B from Figure 1, ASPId; for
other segments, Data User ID) the date and time, and a 5 digit unique sequence number
together. An example of a MessageId is 19992007013011552311111 where the LRIT ID of
the LRIT Data User = 1999, year = 2007, month = 01, day = 30, hour = 11, minute = 55,
second = 23, and unique number = 11111.

I:\CIRC\MSC\01\1259-Rev-4.doc
MSC.1/Circ.1259/Rev.4
Annex, page 35

2.2.2.12 The ReferenceId parameter should be either a MessageId of an associated request


message or an empty value. Specifically, for archived requests, the ReferenceId should be the
MessageId of the associated archive request message and not the value as stored. The value is
not populated if the message is not the result of a request message. A valid ReferenceId that is
not an empty value indicates that a request message has initiated the provision of LRIT
information.

2.2.2.13 The IMONum and MMSINum parameters are the IMO ship identification number and
the Maritime Mobile Service Identity (MMSI) of the ship being tracked, respectively.

2.2.2.14 The TimeStamp2 and TimeStamp3 parameters are the date and time associated
with when the ASP received and transmitted the LRIT information message, respectively. Both
TimeStamps should be indicated as Universal Co-ordinated Time (UTC).

2.2.2.15 The DCId parameter is the LRIT ID of the DC receiving the LRIT information.

2.2.2.16 The TimeStamp4 and TimeStamp5 parameters are the date and time associated
with when the DC received and transmitted the LRIT information message, respectively.

2.2.2.17 The ResponseType parameter provides information with respect to why the receiving
LRIT Data User (DataUserRequestor) is receiving the LRIT information. The LRIT Data User's
entitlement to receive the LRIT information is based upon its functioning as: a flag State; a port
State; a coastal State; or a SAR service.

2.2.2.18 The DataUserRequestor parameter is the LRIT ID of the LRIT Data User that is
intended to receive LRIT information as a result of a request message or a standing order. The
IDE should look at this parameter during processing of the message and use it to correctly route
the message to the appropriate DC.

2.2.2.19 The ShipName parameter is the name of the ship in the English language using
UTF-8 encoding and the LATIN-1 character set.

2.2.2.20 The DataUserProvider parameter is the LRIT ID of the LRIT Data User (i.e. the
Administration) associated with that ship.

2.2.2.21 The DDPVersionNum parameter is the version number of the DDP that is being used
by the DC sending the message.

2.2.2.22 The test parameter indicates whether the message is a test message intended for
testing purposes only, or a regular LRIT message.

2.2.2.23 The schemaVersion parameter represents the release number associated with the
set of XML schema files that define the LRIT messages. This parameter is informative only and
no processing action is required by the receiving LRIT component.

2.2.3 Position request and SAR position request messages (Messages 4 and 5)

2.2.3.1 Table 3 outlines the parameters associated with the Position request and SAR
position request messages.

2.2.3.2 NDCs and R/CDCs should format Position request and SAR position request
messages as specified in table 3 before transmitting them to the IDE. The LRIT Data User to
NDC or R/CDC communication path may transmit Position request and SAR position request
messages amongst themselves in any format they choose.

2.2.3.3 The LRIT Data User to IDC to IDE communication path should transmit Position
request and SAR position request messages in a processed format as specified in table 3.

2.2.3.4 The LRIT request messages are intended to provide LRIT Data Users with the
ability, inter alia, to poll the position of a specific ships, change the rate of transmission of LRIT
information by a ship, request archived LRIT information or stop receiving LRIT information
transmitted by a given ship.

2.2.3.5 The MessageType parameter indicates the type of the message. The LRIT
components such as the DCs should use this parameter to distinguish between the various
types of messages listed in table 1.

2.2.3.6 The MessageId parameter is a unique identification number that LRIT components
should use to identify individual messages within the LRIT system. The MessageId is generated
by linking the LRIT ID of the LRIT Data User, the date and time, and a 5 digit unique sequence
number together. The unique sequence number should be generated by the LRIT Data User
and the date and time should be the year, month, day, h, min and second when the parameter
was generated. An example of a MessageId is 19992007013011552322222 where the LRIT ID
of the LRIT Data User = 1999, year = 2007, month = 01, day = 30, h = 11 min = 55, second = 23,
unique sequence number = 22222).

2.2.3.7 The IMONum parameter is the IMO ship identification number of the ship being
tracked.

2.2.3.8 The DataUserProvider parameter is the LRIT ID of the LRIT Data User of the
Administration for that ship. This parameter is used to identify the destination of the request
message. The IDE should look at this parameter during processing of the request message and
use it to correctly route the message to the appropriate DC.

2.2.3.9 The AccessType parameter indicates the requesting LRIT Data User's entitlement to
receive the LRIT information. The LRIT Data User might be requesting the LRIT information as:
a flag State; a port State; a coastal State; or a SAR service. If the AccessType is port State,
then the trigger mechanism should be: a distance from a port, or commence tracking upon
receiving request message, or a specific time. AccessType 0 is used in conjunction with
RequestType 0 in order to restart/reset all previous requests to the referenced ship. The LRIT
Data User issuing the request message with this parameter combination has effectively
cancelled all previous request messages and should only receive LRIT information based upon
standing orders in the DDP for that ship.

2.2.3.10 The Port, PortFacility, or Place parameter should be populated with the UN/LOCODE
code for the port, IMO port facility number of the port facility or a unique code for places under
the jurisdiction of Contracting Governments that the ship is intending to enter. This parameter
should not be present if the request is not a port State request. This parameter is only valid for
AccessTypes 3 and 5.

I:\CIRC\MSC\01\1259-Rev-4.doc
MSC.1/Circ.1259/Rev.4
Annex, page 40

2.2.3.11 The Distance parameter should be the distance in nautical miles from a port or port
facility where the requesting Contracting Government wishes to track the designated ship. This
parameter is only valid when the AccessType parameter is set to 3.

2.2.3.12 The RequestType parameter should indicate whether the request is for: a
restart/reset; a one-time poll; a specified periodic rate ; archived data; most recent position
report; stop tracking; or do not start sending position reports. The do not start sending position
reports message option provides Contracting Governments with the ability to temporarily
override standing orders in the DDP. Consider the scenario where a Contracting Government is
tracking a ship via port State access and does not want to receive LRIT information as a coastal
State. The Contracting Governments could build a request message with coastal for the
"Accesstype parameter and stop / don't start sending for the RequestType. The providing DC,
after receiving such a request message, should not start sending any coastal LRIT information
for the period of time stated in the RequestDuration parameter.

2.2.3.13 The RequestDuration parameter provides information on the start and stop times for
tracking of a ship. If the AccessType is 3, then the RequestDuration and the Distance are both
valid parameters. If the RequestDuration is unspecified, then only the distance from port is valid
for the port State request with distance trigger. The Data User Provider should queue and
continue to process request messages with AccessTypes 3 and 5 and with a valid
RequestDuration until the time expires or the Data User Requester terminates the ship position
request. If the start time is not populated, it will default to the current time. If the stop time is not
populated, it will default to infinity. The start time shall precede the end time. The Request
duration for an archived request should not exceed 30 days.

2.2.3.14 The DataUserRequestor parameter is the LRIT ID of the LRIT Data User originating
the request message. For SAR position requests, the DataUserRequestor parameter should be
populated with an LRIT ID that is associated with a valid SAR service for SAR related messages.

2.2.3.15 The TimeStamp parameter is the date and time associated with the generation of the
message.

2.2.3.16 The DDPVersionNum parameter is the version number of the DDP that is being used
by the DC sending the message at the time the message is sent (timestamp5).

2.2.3.17 The test parameter indicates whether the message is a test message intended for
testing purposes only or if it is a regular message.

2.2.3.18 The schemaVersion parameter represents the release number associated with the
set of XML schema files that define the LRIT messages. This parameter is informative only and
no processing action is required by the receiving LRIT component.

2.2.4 SAR SURPIC request message (Message 6)

2.2.4.1 Table 4 outlines the parameters associated with the SAR SURPIC request message.

2.2.4.2 NDCs and R/CDCs should format the SAR SURPIC message as specified in table 4
before transmitting it to the IDE. The LRIT Data User to NDC or R/CDC communication path
may transmit SAR SURPIC messages amongst themselves in any format that they choose.

2.2.4.3 The LRIT Data User to IDC to IDE communication path should transmit SAR
SURPIC messages in a processed format as specified in table 4.

2.2.4.4 This message requests the most recent LRIT information from the databases within
the DCs. It is intended to provide SAR services with the ability to obtain a picture of the ships in
a given geographical area where search and rescue operations are to be conducted.

2.2.4.5 The MessageType parameter indicates the type of the message. The LRIT
components such as the DCs should use this parameter to distinguish between the various
types of messages listed in table 1.

2.2.4.6 The MessageId parameter is a unique identification number that LRIT components
should use to identify individual messages within the LRIT system. The MessageId is generated
by linking the LRIT ID of the LRIT Data User, the date and time, and a 5 digit unique sequence
number together. The unique sequence number should be generated by the LRIT Data User
and the date and time should be the year, month, day, h, min and second when the parameter
was generated. An example of a MessageId is 29992007013021552344444 where the
LRIT ID of the LRIT Data User = 2999, year = 2007, month = 01, day = 30, h = 21, min = 55,
second = 23, and unique sequence number = 44444.

2.2.4.7 The SARCircularArea parameter defines the circular geographical area within which
the SAR service wishes to check for ships. The position of the centre of the circular area should
be indicated by the latitude and longitude on the basis of the WGS 84 datum in degrees and
minutes with North/South (latitude) and East/West (longitude). The radius of the circular area
should be indicated in nautical miles. This parameter is only valid if the parameter is populated
and indicates that the SAR service wishes to perform a search based on a circular area. The
radius of the circular search area should not exceed 999 nautical miles. If a processing DC
encounters a radius of a circular search that is greater than 999 nautical miles then the
processing DC should send a receipt message with receipt code 7 to the requestor.

2.2.4.8 The SARRectangularArea parameter defines the rectangular geographical area


within which the SAR service wishes to check for ships. The rectangular area should be
indicated by the latitude and longitude on the basis of the WGS 84 datum of the southwest
corner of the rectangular area in degrees and minutes with North/South (latitude) and East/West
(longitude), and the north and east offsets are expressed as: degrees.minutes.North and East
from the Southwest corner. This parameter is only valid if the parameter is populated and
indicates that the SAR service wishes to perform a search based on a rectangular area. No side
of the rectangular search area should exceed 2000 nautical miles. If a processing DC
encounters a side of the rectangular area that is greater than 2000 nautical miles then the
processing DC should send a receipt message with receipt code 7 to the requestor.

2.2.4.8.1 If the latitude of the Southwest corner of the rectangular area is 90 degrees North or
South, or if adding the North offset to the latitude of the Southwest corner results in a latitude
of 90 degrees North or South, then the processing DC may, in the course of processing the
request, modify the 90 degree latitude by a maximum of one minute to ensure proper
geospatial processing (i.e. In the maximum allowable modification, the latitude should be set
to 89 degrees 59 minutes).

I:\CIRC\MSC\01\1259-Rev-4.doc
MSC.1/Circ.1259/Rev.4
Annex, page 45

2.2.4.8.2 If adding the North offset to the latitude of the Southwest corner of the rectangular
area results in a latitude of greater than 90 degrees North, then the processing DC should send
a Receipt message with a receipt code of 7 to the requestor. In other words, the rectangular
search area should not cross the North Pole. In situations where a SAR service needs to submit
a SURPIC that crosses either the North Pole or the South Pole, a circular area should be used.

2.2.4.9 The NumberOfPositions parameter defines how many of the most recent position
reports received by a DC during the past 24 h from ships within the requested geographical area
are being requested by the SAR service. The number of positions must be from 1 to 4. Once a
DC has received a SAR SURPIC request message, it should check the last position report it has
on every ship registered to that DC. If the timestamp associated with that position report is
within the past 24 h and the position report is within the geographical area established by the
SAR SURPIC message, then the DC should send the last N position reports associated with the
ship that are within the past 24-h window and in the geographical area. Thus all the position
reports that are sent to the requesting DC should have timestamps that are within the past 24-h
window as well as location co-ordinates that are within the geographical area.

2.2.4.10 The DataUserRequestor parameter is the LRIT Data User originating the request
message. The DataUserRequestor parameter should be populated with an LRIT ID that is
associated with a valid SAR service for SAR related messages.

2.2.4.11 The TimeStamp parameter is the date and time associated with the generation of the
message.

2.2.4.12 The DDPVersionNum parameter is the version number of the DDP that is being used
by the DC sending the message to the IDE for broadcast to all DCs.

2.2.4.13 The test parameter indicates whether the message is a test message intended for
testing purposes only or if it is a regular message.

2.2.4.14 The schemaVersion parameter represents the release number associated with the
set of XML schema files that define the LRIT messages. This parameter is informative only and
no processing action is required by the receiving LRIT component.

2.2.5 Receipt message (Message 7)

2.2.5.1 Table 5 outlines the parameters associated with the Receipt message.

2.2.5.2 The Receipt message should be sent in order to acknowledge the receipt of a
message that cannot be processed for some reason. When an LRIT component receives a
message it should process the message and either send the requested information or send a
Receipt message with the appropriate Receipt code informing the originating LRIT component
why the message could not be processed.

2.2.5.3 The MessageType parameter indicates the type of the message. The LRIT
components such as the DCs should use this parameter to distinguish between the various
types of messages listed in table 1.

2.2.5.4 The MessageId parameter is a unique identification number that LRIT components
should use to identify individual messages within the LRIT system. The MessageId is generated
by linking the LRIT ID of the LRIT Component generating the receipt message, the date and
time, and a 5 digit unique sequence number together. An example of a MessageId
is 39992007013012552377777 where the LRIT ID of the LRIT Component = 3999, year = 2007,
month = 01, day = 30, h =12, min = 55, second = 23, unique sequence number = 77777.

2.2.5.5 The ReferenceId parameter is the MessageId of an associated message.

2.2.5.6 The ReceiptCode parameter provides information with respect to the specific Receipt
message that has been generated. In particular:

.1 ReceiptCode 0 Not entitled to data Receipt message should be


generated by a DC when it determines that the requesting LRIT Data User
is not entitled to receive the LRIT information it has requested;

.2 ReceiptCode 1 No ship in SAR SURPIC area should be generated in


response to a SAR SURPIC request message if a DC that is processing a
SAR SURPIC request message determines that there are no ships within
the geographical area specified in the SAR SURPIC request message;

.3 ReceiptCode 2 IDE not available should be generated when the IDE is


not available for any reason. The Receipt message should typically be
generated by a DC in order to indicate that the IDE is off line. A DC is able
to detect this type of error by using the System status message transmitted
from the IDE;

.4 ReceiptCode 3 DC not available should be generated when a DC is not


available. The IDE should be responsible for determining if all DCs are on
line, as indicated by the System status message;

.5 ReceiptCode 4 CSP not available should be generated when a DC has


determined a CSP is off line. The DC is responsible for detecting when the
CSP is not available;

.6 ReceiptCode 5 Ship not responding should be generated by a DC if a


ship that transmits to that DC is not responding. All DCs should be
detecting if ships associated with that DC are transmitting LRIT information
at the preset time intervals. If a LRIT Data User requests LRIT information
from a ship that is not responding, then the DC to which the ship transmits

I:\CIRC\MSC\01\1259-Rev-4.doc
MSC.1/Circ.1259/Rev.4
Annex, page 49

should generate a Receipt message with text content stating how long the
ship has not been responding;

.7 ReceiptCode 6 Ship not available should be generated by a DC when a


request has been made for LRIT information associated with a ship that
should be transmitting to that DC but which has never transmitted
information to the DC;

.8 ReceiptCode 7 System fault should be generated when a fault occurs in


the system that is not covered by the other Receipt Codes;

.9 ReceiptCode 8 Could not load DDP should be generated when a DC or


the IDE is unable to process the received DDP. The message should be
sent to the DDP server; and

.10 ReceiptCode 9 Incorrect DDP version, message discarded should be


generated by the IDE when the DDPVersionNum parameter contained
within the message does not match the DDPVersionNum being used by the
IDE. The IDE should discard the message and build a Receipt message
with the ReferenceId populated with the MessageId of the discarded
message.

2.2.5.7 The Destination parameter is the LRIT ID associated with the LRIT component to
which the receipt message is destined. The value of this parameter should be determined by the
message type of the referenced message (the message indicated by the Reference Id
parameter) as follows:

Type Name Destination parameter


1-3 Position reports LRIT Data User provider
4-5 Position requests LRIT Data User requestor
6 SAR SURPIC request LRIT Data User requestor
7 Receipt Originator
8 DDP notification Destination should always be the DDP server LRIT ID
9 DDP request Originator
10 DDP update Destination should always be the DDP server LRIT ID
11 System Status Originator
12 Journal message Originator
13 Pricing Notification Destination should always be the IDE LRIT ID
14 Pricing Request Originator
15 Pricing Update If the referenced Pricing Update was sent from a DC
to the IDE, the DC's LRIT ID should be used. If the
referenced Pricing Update was sent from the IDE to a
DC, the IDE's LRIT ID should be used.

I:\CIRC\MSC\01\1259-Rev-4.doc
MSC.1/Circ.1259/Rev.4
Annex, page 50

2.2.5.8 The Originator parameter is the LRIT ID of the LRIT component generating the
message. This parameter should be used to identify where the message originated.

2.2.5.9 The Message parameter should contain text providing information in relation to the
nature of the Receipt message.

2.2.5.10 The TimeStamp parameter is the date and time associated with the generation of the
message.

2.2.5.11 The DDPVersionNum parameter is the version number of the DDP that is being used
by the DC sending the message.

2.2.5.12 The test parameter indicates whether the message is a test message intended for
testing purposes only or if it is a regular message.

2.2.5.13 The schemaVersion parameter represents the release number associated with the
set of XML schema files that define the LRIT messages. This parameter is informative only and
no processing action is required by the receiving LRIT component.

2.2.6 DDP notification message (Message 8)

2.2.6.1 Table 6 outlines the DDP notification message.

2.2.6.2 The DDP notification message should be sent by the DDP server to the IDE, which in
turn should broadcast the message to all DCs. The message is intended to inform the IDE and
all DCs that a new version of the DDP has been published and is available for download.

2.2.6.3 The MessageType parameter indicates the type of the message. LRIT components
such as the DCs should use this parameter to distinguish between the various types of
messages listed in table 1.

2.2.6.4 The MessageId parameter is a unique identification number that LRIT components
should use to identify individual messages within the LRIT system. The MessageId is generated
by linking the LRIT ID of the DDP server, the date and time, and a 5 digit unique sequence
number together. An example of a MessageId is 00012007013012552322222 where the LRIT
ID of the DDP server = 0001, year = 2007, month = 01, day = 30, h = 12, min = 55, second = 23,
and unique sequence number = 22222.

2.2.6.5 The UpdateType parameter indicates the nature of the DDP available on the DDP
server. A value of 0 indicates that a new version of the DDP has been published with updates to
"regular" information in the DDP. A value of 1 indicates that a new version of the DDP has been
published with updates to "immediate" information in the DDP. Further details relating to the
scheduling and priority of implementing the particular DDP available on the server is found in the
Technical specifications for the LRIT Data Distribution Plan.

2.2.6.6 The Message parameter should contain text providing information in relation to the
nature of the message. It may, for example, state that certain Contracting Governments have
updated their standing orders in the DDP and this is the reason why a new DDP is available.

2.2.6.7 The TimeStamp parameter is the date and time when the DDP server transmits the
message.

2.2.6.8 The NewVersionNum parameter is either the regular version number (if UpdateType
is 0) or the immediate version number (if UpdateType is 1) of the new version that is available for
download.

2.2.6.9 The test parameter indicates whether the message is a test message intended for
testing purposes only or if it is a regular message.

2.2.6.10 The schemaVersion parameter represents the release number associated with the
set of XML schema files that define the LRIT messages. This parameter is informative only and
no processing action is required by the receiving LRIT component.

2.2.7 DDP request message (Message 9)

2.2.7.1 Table 7 outlines the parameters associated with the DDP request message.

2.2.7.2 The DDP request message should be sent by the IDE and DCs to the DDP server.
The message is intended to inform the DDP server that the LRIT component (IDE or DC)
sending the message is requesting either the full DDP or an incremental update to the DDP.

2.2.7.3 The MessageType parameter indicates the type of the message. LRIT components
such as the DCs should use this parameter to distinguish between the various types of
messages listed in table 1.

2.2.7.4 The MessageId parameter is a unique identification number that LRIT components
should use to identify individual messages within the LRIT system. The MessageId is generated
by linking the LRIT ID of the LRIT Component (IDE or DC), the date and time, and a 5 digit
unique sequence number together. An example of a MessageId is 39992007013023552344444
where the LRIT ID of the LRIT Data Centre = 3999, year = 2007, month = 01, day = 30, h = 23,
min = 55, second = 23, and unique sequence number = 44444.

2.2.7.5 The UpdateType parameter indicates the representation of the DDP being
requested. If the value of UpdateType is 0, the request is for an incremental regular update. If
the value is 1, the request is for an incremental immediate update. If the value is 2, the request
is for all incremental updates. If the value is 3, the current full DDP is requested. If the value
is 4, an archived full DDP is requested. Further details relating to the scheduling and priority of
implementing the particular DDP file available on the server is found in the Technical
specifications for the LRIT Data Distribution Plan.

2.2.7.6 The ArchivedDDPVersionNum parameter indicates the requested archived DDP


version number. This parameter is only used when an archived DDP is being requested (update
type 4). If the ArchivedDDPVersionNum parameter is specified, the ArchivedDDPTimeStamp
should be ignored.

2.2.7.7 The ArchivedDDPTimeStamp parameter is the date and time associated with the full
DDP version that was implemented within the LRIT system at that time. This parameter is only
used when an archived DDP is being requested (UpdateType 4). If the
ArchivedDDPVersionNum is specified, the ArchivedDDPTimeStamp should be ignored

2.2.7.8 The Originator parameter is the LRIT ID number associated with the LRIT
component generating the DDP request message. This parameter is used to identify where the
DDP request message originated.

2.2.7.9 The TimeStamp parameter is the date and time associated with the generation of the
message.

2.2.7.10 The DDPVersionNum parameter is the version number of the DDP that is being used
by the DC or IDE issuing the request for a new DDP.

2.2.7.11 The test parameter indicates whether the message is a test message intended for
testing purposes only or if it is a regular message.

2.2.7.12 The ReferenceId indicates the MessageId associated with the DDP notification
message that caused the DDP request message to be generated.

2.2.7.13 The schemaVersion parameter represents the release number associated with the
set of XML schema files that define the LRIT messages. This parameter is informative only and
no processing action is required by the receiving LRIT component.

2.2.8 DDP update message (Message 10)

2.2.8.1 Table 8 outlines the parameters associated with the DDP update message.

2.2.8.2 The DDP update message is sent by the DDP server to the IDE and/or DCs. The
message should contain the requested version of the DDP.

2.2.8.3 The MessageType parameter indicates the type of the message. LRIT components
such as the DCs should use this parameter to distinguish between the various types of
messages listed in table 1.

2.2.8.4 The MessageId parameter is a unique identification number that LRIT components
should use to identify individual messages within the LRIT system. The MessageId is generated
by linking the LRIT ID of the DDP server, the date and time, and a 5 digit unique sequence
number together. An example of a MessageId is 00012007013002552322222 where the LRIT
ID of the DDP server = 0001, year = 2007, month = 01, day = 30, h = 02, min = 55, second = 23,
and unique sequence number = 22222.

2.2.8.5 The ReferenceId indicates the MessageId associated with the DDP request message
that caused the DDP update to be generated.

2.2.8.6 The UpdateType parameter indicates the representation of the DDP being
downloaded. If the value of UpdateType is 0, the update is an incremental regular update. If the
value is 1, the update is an incremental immediate update. If the value is 2, the update contains
all incremental updates. If the value is 3, the current full DDP is provided. If the value is 4, an
archived full DDP is provided. Further details relating to the scheduling and priority of
implementing the particular DDP file available on the server is found in the Technical
specifications for the LRIT Data Distribution Plan.

2.2.8.7 The Message parameter is for the provision of text providing information in relation to
the nature of the message.

2.2.8.8 The TimeStamp parameter is the date and time when the originator transmits the
message.

2.2.8.9 The DDPFile parameter is a file attachment containing either the full DDP or an
incremental update.

2.2.8.10 The DDPFileVersionNum parameter is the version number of the DDP that is being

2.2.9 System status message (Message 11)

2.2.9.1 Table 9 outlines the parameters associated with the System status message.

2.2.9..2 The System status message is sent by the IDE to all DCs and the DDP server in
order to provide them with information pertaining to the operational status of the IDE, while the
System status message sent by the DCs or the DDP server to the IDE provide similar
information to the IDE.

2.2.9.3 The MessageType parameter indicates the type of the message. LRIT components
such as the DCs should use this parameter to distinguish between the various types of
messages listed in table 1.

2.2.9.4 The MessageId parameter is a unique identification number that LRIT components
should use to identify individual messages within the LRIT system. The MessageId is generated
by linking the LRIT ID of the LRIT Component (IDE, DC, or DDP server) , the date and time, and
a 5 digit unique sequence number together. An example of a MessageId
is 39992007013015552311111 where the LRIT ID of the LRIT Component = 3999, year = 2007,
month = 01, day = 30, h = 15, min = 55, second = 23, and unique sequence number = 11111.

2.2.9.5 The TimeStamp parameter is the date and time when the originator transmits the
message.

2.2.9.6 The SystemStatus parameter provides information pertaining to the operational


status of the LRIT component (i.e. the IDE, DC or the DDP server) that transmitted the message.
If the value is 0, then the LRIT component is functioning normally, while a value of 1 indicates
that the component is not adhering to the Performance standards and/or the technical
specifications.

2.2.9.7 The Message parameter is for the provision of text providing information in relation to
the message. It might, for example, state that the IDE Operator has turned off the DDP version
validation function of the IDE due to a catastrophic failure of the DDP server.

2.2.9.8 The Originator parameter is the LRIT ID of the LRIT component generating the
message. This parameter is used to identify where the message originated.

2.2.9.9 The DDPVersionNum parameter is the version number of the DDP that is being used
by the LRIT component.

2.2.9.10 The test parameter indicates whether the message is a test message intended for
testing purposes only or if it is a regular message.

2.2.9.11 The schemaVersion parameter represents the release number associated with the
set of XML schema files that define the LRIT messages. This parameter is informative only and
no processing action is required by the receiving LRIT component.

2.3 Message processing

2.3.1 General

2.3.1.1 All DCs and LRIT components within the LRIT system should process all request
messages and file attachments as described in this section.

2.3.1.2 DCs that receive any LRIT message with the test parameter set to 1 can choose to
either not process the message or perform unique processing in relation to a unique test case
previously agreed with the DC sending the LRIT message.

2.3.1.3 DCs should disregard the DDPVersionNum parameter field when processing any
LRIT message. DDP version number checking is done by the IDE.

2.3.1.4 The IDE should perform schema validation only on messages addressed to the IDE.
If a message fails schema validation then the receiving component should generate and send
either a SOAP fault or a receipt message with receipt code of 7 to the LRIT component that
transmitted the LRIT message with a schema error.

2.3.1.5 All DCs and the DDP server should perform schema validation on all received LRIT
messages. If a message fails schema validation, then the receiving component should generate
and send either a SOAP fault or a receipt message with receipt code of 7 to the LRIT component
that transmitted the LRIT message with a schema error.

2.3.2 DC DDP processing

2.3.2.1 If a DC cannot properly process a DDP file as the result of DDP polygons not being
conformant to the technical specification, then the DC should take the following actions:

.1 Send a receipt message to the DDP server with receipt code 8 (could not
load DDP) as well as a descriptive text message describing the problem.

.2 Contact the IMO Secretariat off line in order to discuss the steps required to
fix the problem.

.3 Perform processing based upon the DDP file but exclude/ignore all
polygons (Custom coastal areas, internal waters, territorial seas, 1000Nm)
of the Contracting Government whose entry contained the error as well as
any of its coastal State standing orders contained in that DDP file.

.4 Update the DDP version number in all messages at the appropriate time
and continue to process as normal.

2.3.2.2 If a DC cannot properly process a DDP file as the result of problems not related to
DDP polygons not being conformant to the technical specification, then the DC should take the
following actions:

.1 Send a receipt message to the DDP server with receipt code 8 (could not
load DDP) as well as a descriptive text message describing the problem;

.2 Contact the IMO Secretariat off line in order to discuss the steps required to
fix the problem. Both the IMO Secretariat and applicable DC should work
to fix the problem as soon as possible;

I:\CIRC\MSC\01\1259-Rev-4.doc
MSC.1/Circ.1259/Rev.4
Annex, page 72

.3 Perform processing based upon the DDP file to the extent possible given
the nature of the problem;

.4 If the DDP update can be processed to the extent that the new DDP
version number can be determined, update the DDP version number in all
messages at the appropriate time and continue to process as normal; and

.5 It is recommended that DC request a Full DDP version after the DDP file
has been corrected.

2.3.2A IDE DDP Processing

2.3.2A.1 If the IDE cannot properly process a DDP file for any reason (recognizing that the
IDE does not validate polygon data beyond XML schema compliance), then the IDE should take
the following actions:

.1 Send a receipt message to the DDP server with receipt code 8 (could not
load DDP) as well as a descriptive text message describing the problem;

.2 Contact the IMO Secretariat off line in order to discuss the steps required to
fix the problem;

.3 Perform processing based upon the DDP file to the extent possible given
the nature of the problem; and

.4 If the DDP update can be processed to the extent that the new DDP
version number can be determined, update the DDP version number in all
messages at the appropriate time and continue to process as normal.

2.3.3 LRIT position report message processing

2.3.3.1 All LRIT position reports received by a DC from ships entitled to fly the flags of a
Contracting Government(s) utilizing that DC (See Figure 1, Communications Segment B) should
be checked against all coastal geographical polygons contained within the DDP in order to
determine if a particular Contracting Government associated with a coastal polygon is entitled to
receive the position report. While checking the entitlement of Contracting Governments to
receive a particular LRIT information, DCs should either use timestamp1 or timestamp4
parameters to determine the DDP version to be utilized.

2.3.3.2 DCs providing a stream of LRIT position reports to another DC at a specific rate may
provide two subsequent position reports that are not spaced in time at the desired reporting rate
(but within the rate) if the ship being tracked by the providing DC is also being tracked by other
LRIT Data Users at different rates. This should be considered normal operation.

2.3.3.3 Figure 2 provides an example where a providing DC is providing another DC with a


stream of position reports that are not all spaced in time at the intended tracking rate due to the
ship being tracked by multiple LRIT Data Users at different rates. The flag, DC C and DC D are
tracking the ship at the default rate of 6 h, while DC A is tracking the ship at a rate of 1 h. The
position report at time 2 1/6 is determined to be within the coastal geographical polygon of
Contracting Government B. Contracting Government B receives this position report and its
second position report is received at time 6 1/6 even though it is intended to receive position
reports at a rate of 6 h.

2.3.4 Processing of request messages in the context of the DDP polygons

2.3.4.1 All DCs should use the coastal State standing order information contained within the
DDP to determine when to start and stop tracking of a ship in the absence of any specific LRIT
request message. The providing DC establishes entitlement of an LRIT Data User to receive
position reports by performing the following tasks:

.1 check all coastal State standing orders polygons contained in the DDP to
determine if the ship is located within the geographical areas established
by the polygon;

.2 verify that the ship is not located within the internal waters of another
Contracting Government (including non-metropolitan territories or special
administrative regions listed in the DDP under the requesting Contracting
Government) by checking all of the internal waters polygons contained
within the DDP; and

.3 verify that the ship is not located in the territorial sea of the Contracting
Government (including non-metropolitan territories or special administrative
regions listed in the DDP under the requesting Contracting Government)
whose flag the ship is entitled to fly by checking the territorial seas polygon
in the DDP.

2.3.4.2 A providing DC, after receiving a request message with access type set to coastal
and a request type other than type 0 (restart/reset) or 8 (stop/don't start sending), should
perform the following tasks to ensure that the requesting LRIT Data User is entitled to and
should receive the requested information:

.1 verify that V/19-1.9.1 has not been exercised for this coastal state;

.2 check the seaward area of 1000 nm, territorial seas, or internal waters
polygon(s) associated with the requesting LRIT Data User contained in the
DDP to determine if the ship is located within the polygon(s);

.3 verify that the ship associated with the request is not located within the
internal waters of another Contracting Government (including non-
metropolitan territories or special administrative regions listed in the DDP
under the requesting Contracting Government) by checking all of the
internal waters polygons contained within the DDP; and

I:\CIRC\MSC\01\1259-Rev-4.doc
MSC.1/Circ.1259/Rev.4
Annex, page 74

.4 verify that the ship is not located in the territorial sea of the Contracting
Government (including non-metropolitan territories or special administrative
regions listed in the DDP under the requesting Contracting Government)
whose flag the ship is entitled to fly by checking the territorial seas polygon
in the DDP.

2.3.4.3 A request message with access type set to coastal will override the coastal State
standing orders associated with the custom coastal State areas polygon in the DDP. Example:
Contracting Government A has started receiving position reports associated with ship X as a
result of coastal State standing orders in the DDP (custom coastal State area polygon).
Contracting Government A sends the providing DC a request message with access type set to
coastal, reporting rate of 1 h and a request duration equivalent to 2 days. The providing DC
should send Contracting Government A position reports associated with the ship for the
specified request duration of 2 days at a 1 h rate as long as the ship is within Contracting
Government A's seaward area of 1000 nm, territorial seas, or internal waters polygons.

2.3.4.4 A providing DC, after receiving a request for archived information, should perform the
same tasks as designated for the request message with access type set to coastal in order to
determine if the requestor is entitled to receive the information. However, the providing DC
should use the seaward area of 1000 nm polygons, internal waters polygons, and territorial seas
polygons associated with the DDP that was active during the time the position reports were
transmitted in order to determine if a requesting LRIT Data User is entitled to receive the
archived information.

2.3.4.5 A providing DC, after receiving a request message with access type set to port,
should check all the internal waters polygons (including internal waters polygons associated with
non-metropolitan territories or special administrative regions listed in the DDP under the
requesting Contracting Government) in the DDP to verify that the ship being tracked is not in the
internal waters of another Contracting Government (or non-metropolitan territory or special
administrative region even if they are listed, in the DDP, under the requesting Contract
Government) before sending the position reports to the requesting LRIT Data User. Refer to
table 15 for additional details. The port state request message is suspended while the ship is
located in the internal waters of another contracting government. When the ship exits the
internal waters, the providing DC will reactivate sending position reports to the requestor at a rate
that is the same or less frequent than the reporting rate specified by the port state request message.
The requestor may have to send another port state request message in order to receive position
reports at the reporting rate specified by the original port State request message.

2.3.4.6 When comparing the location of the ship against geographical polygons and other
locations contained within the DDP, DCs should use an industry-standard GIS software
application, or a custom-coded solution that implements well-established computational
geometric algorithms. These different industry standard GIS tools include, but are not limited to,
Oracle Spatial, SQL Server Spatial, PostGIS, ESRI, etc., and/or custom-coded solutions which
utilize different computational geometric algorithms/methodologies. The most commonly used
methodologies/algorithms that exist are Great Circle, Ellipsoidal and Rhumb line. For example
Oracle Spatial uses Ellipsoidal methodology which is similar to Great Circle, with one significant
difference. Rather than assuming a spherical Earth, ellipsoidal logic is based on a Reference
Ellipsoid (a mathematical model of the Earth that takes into account the flattening that occurs at
the Poles).

2.3.4.7 Given the different geometric algorithms/methodologies, when DCs process LRIT
position reports there may on occasion be legitimate technical differences between LRIT
components when determining which Contracting Governments are entitled to a particular ship
position.

2.3.5.2 DCs that are complying with an existing LRIT request message for LRIT information
on a particular ship should terminate the existing request message or suspend sending position
report messages to the requestor if certain operational scenarios occur. Table 15 provides
details on the events that would result in a processing DC terminating an existing request
message or suspending of position reports. It also stipulates if a receipt message should be
generated as well as indicating the particular receipt code that is required when a receipt
message is necessary.

2.3.5.3 DCs have the option of processing the DataUserRequestor parameter of the SAR
Position Request message in order to determine if the requestor is a SAR service entitled to
receive the information requested. If a DC chooses to check the validity of a requestor than it
should check the LRIT ID contained in the DataUserRequestor parameter against SAR service
LRIT IDs in the DDP. If a DC chooses to reject a SAR Position request message based upon
the LRIT ID in the DataUserRequestor parameter than the DC should send a receipt message
with receipt code 0 (not entitled to data) to the requestor.

2.3.5.4 The SARCircularArea and SARRectangularArea parameters should not be


populated in the same SAR SURPIC request message. If both parameters are populated, then
the providing DC should ignore the contents of the SARRectangularArea parameter and use the
contents of the SARCircularArea parameter in responding to the SAR SURPIC request
message.

2.3.5.5 DCs have the option of processing the DataUserRequestor parameter of the SAR
SURPIC message in order to determine if the requestor is a SAR service entitled to receive the
information requested. If a DC chooses to check the validity of a requestor then it should check
the LRIT ID contained in the DataUserRequestor parameter against the SAR service LRIT IDs in
the DDP. If a DC chooses to reject a SAR SURPIC message based upon the LRIT ID in the
DataUserRequestor parameter than the DC should send a receipt message with receipt code 0
(not entitled to data) to the requestor.

2.3.6 Processing of multiple requests to change the shipborne equipment


transmitting interval

2.3.6.1 The requirements specified in this section are applicable to requests directed
towards ship terminals that are programmed to transmit only one stream of positional information
to their DC. Requests that are directed towards ship terminals that are programmed to transmit
an asynchronous stream of data for each LRIT request may choose not to follow the
requirements listed in this section if they ensure that the first position report associated with the
stream of data is within the specified reporting rate plus 30 min and all position reports within the
stream of data supplied to the requestor are spaced at the desired reporting time (i.e. all
subsequent position reports are spaced at the time specified by the reporting rate).

2.3.6.2 DCs receiving multiple request messages from different requestors requiring the
shipborne equipment to be programmed at different transmission intervals should set the
shipborne equipment transmitting interval to the fastest requested periodic rate. For example, if
Contracting Government A has transmitted a coastal State request with a reporting rate of 3 h for
ship X, while Contracting Government B has issued a port State request for the same ship X with
a reporting rate of 1 h, then the DC (ASP function) associated with ship X should set the
transmission interval of ship X's shipborne equipment to 1 h.

2.3.6.3 DCs should handle requests for changing a ship's transmission interval based upon
when the DC receives the request. If, for example, a DC receives a request from LRIT Data
User A at 01:00, followed by a second request from LRIT Data User B at 02:00 and a third
request from LRIT Data User C at 02:30, the order of processing for requests should be: LRIT
Data User A, LRIT Data User B and LRIT Data User C. All position reports provided to each
LRIT Data user should be synchronized with each other.

2.3.6.4 DCs4 should ensure that the first request message should establish the time base
line for position reports relating to all subsequent request messages. Essentially, the position
reports sent by the providing DC to all requesting DCs should be time synchronized to the

4
DC may delegate its responsibility to its ASP.

I:\CIRC\MSC\01\1259-Rev-4.doc
MSC.1/Circ.1259/Rev.4
Annex, page 81

position reports associated with the first request message. Thus, the default flag rate would
establish the time base.

2.3.6.5 The providing DC should send a receipt message (receipt code 7) to any requesting
DC if the providing DC cannot send the first position report within the requested duration time
plus 30 min. The 30 min time requirement is required due to latency issues with the terminal.
Under normal circumstances, the DC will always be able to send the first position to the
requesting DC within the time frame; however, if for whatever reason, the providing DC can not
send the first position report within the time frame, then it should send a receipt message
(receipt code 7) to the requiring DC. If, for example, a requesting DC has issued a request that
stipulates the shipborne equipment should be set to a reporting rate of 1 h, then the providing
DC should send a receipt message to the requesting DC if the first position report provided does
not occur within 1 h and 30 min of the request being received. The request message will not be
further processed after the receipt message is issued.

2.3.6.6 The providing DC should maintain the desired time interval amongst all data position
reports when sending LRIT position reports in response to a request for LRIT information at a
desired rate. If the providing DC cannot provide some of the position reports on time or some of
the reports are missing, it should continue to send the LRIT position reports without sending any
receipt message. It should also take the appropriate steps necessary in order to correct the
problem. If, for example, a providing DC is sending LRIT position report messages at a rate of
once an h but the 5th and 6th messages are late while the 10th position report is missing then the
providing DC should continue to send the messages to the requestor at a rate as close to the
desired one h rate without sending any receipt messages.

2.3.6.7 Figure 3 provides an example of a DC receiving two requests from two different DCs
that require a transmission interval change to the LRIT shipborne equipment of a ship entitled to
fly the flag of a Contracting Government utilizing the DC that receives the requests. The first
request associated with DC A has a higher frequency transmission interval than that of the DC B
request. The processing DC associated with the ship should process the requests as follows:

.1 the DC to which the ship is transmitting LRIT information receives ship


position information at time point -5 5/6;

.2 the processing DC sets the requested shipborne equipment to 1 h as


required by the request received from DC A. This request has taken place
at time point -4/6;

.3 DC B should receive its first position report at time 3 1/6 (Synchronized


with 6 hr reports and 1 hr reports). Since the first position report is within
the time frame associated with the request (3 h), a receipt message is not
sent to DC B;

.4 the processing DC, through its ASP, should set the shipborne equipment to
a transmission interval of 3 h at time 9 1/6 since DC A's request has
expired; and

.5 the processing DC should set the shipborne equipment back to a


transmission interval of 6 h after DC B's request has expired at time
point 12 1/6. The following transmission of LRIT information by the ship will
occur at time point 18 1/6.

2.3.6.8 Figure 4 provides an example of a DC receiving two requests from two different DCs
that require a transmission interval change to the shipborne equipment of a ship entitled to fly
the flag of a Contracting Government utilizing the DC that receives the requests. The first
request associated with DC A has a lower frequency transmission interval rate than that of
DC B's request. The processing DC associated with the ship should process the requests as
follows:

.1 the DC to which the ship is transmitting LRIT information receives ship


position information at time point -5 5/6;

.2 the processing DC sets the requested shipborne equipment to 3 h as


required by the request received from DC A. This request has taken place
at time point -4/6;

.3 the processing DC, after receiving a request from DC B at time 3 5/6, will
configure the shipborne equipment to begin transmitting information at an
interval of 1 h beginning at time 4 1/6. The terminal has to wait until
time 4 1/6 to send its first position report, as opposed to sending a position
report at time 3 5/6, in order to ensure that the requestor (i.e. the first
request) receives all of its position reports on schedule. No receipt
message should be sent to DC B since the first position report would be
within the 1 1/2 h request duration message; and

.4 the processing DC should set the shipborne equipment back to the


default 6 h transmission interval after DC B's request expires at 11 1/6 and
DC A's request expires at 9 1/6. The next flag's position report occurs at
time point 12 1/6.

2.3.7 Processing of port State requests (AccessType 3) within Message 4

2.3.7.1 DCs that receive a request message with a valid time field populated in the request
duration field and the AccessType set to 3 with a request type set to a value of 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 10,
or 11 should logically AND5 the Distance and Time parameters. Essentially, the DC should not
start sending port State position reports until the ship associated with the request is within the
distance stated in the distance field and the start time in the request duration is current.

2.3.8 Processing of Port State Request Messages in the Context of Special


Administrative Regions and non-metropolitan territories

2.3.8.1 DCs that receive a port State request message should check to ensure that the port
listed in the port parameter of the request message is a valid port associated with the
Contracting Government specified by the DataUserRequestor parameter of the request
message. Port validation for Contracting Governments should be achieved by checking the
DDP for ports associated with the requesting Contracting Government.

2.3.8.2 The port should be considered a valid port for the requesting Contracting
Government if, within the context of the DDP, the port is directly listed under the Contracting
Government or if the port is listed under a special administrative region or non-metropolitan
territory associated with the Contracting Government.

2.3.8.3 A port State request message transmitted by a special administrative region or non-
metropolitan territory with the port parameter of the request message populated with a port
directly listed under the Contracting Government associated with the special administrative
region or the non-metropolitan territory should be considered not valid. A receipt message
(receipt code 0) should be sent to the requestor indicating that the requestor is not entitled to the
data.

.1 include all messages internally routed within an R/CDC or the IDC; this
should include messages exchanged between two LRIT Data Users of the
R/CDC or the IDC;

.2 not include any LRIT information contained within the LRIT position reports.
The shipborne equipment parameter fields of a LRIT position report should
be populated with dummy values;

.3 include the element ReceivedTimestamp for each message to be populated


with the time when the message was received by the R/CDC;

Annex, page 91

.5 include the attribute positionSent for the Position Report message set to
"true".

2.3.10.4 The IDE should process received Journal messages as follows:

.1 store the Journal message (Message 12) as a single message in the IDE
Journal;

.2 open the attached ZIP file and extract all of the LRIT messages contained
within; and

.3 store all the messages contained in the ZIP file in the IDE Journal in a
similar manner as other LRIT messages traversing through the IDE.

2.3.11 Processing pricing file information

2.3.11.1 The update pricing file message should be transmitted as determined by the DC
issuing the pricing message and the IDE.

2.3.11.2 R/CDCs and the IDC have the option of sending an update pricing file message
containing a price breakdown that is different for each LRIT Data User associated with the DC,
or a single price breakdown that is the same for all LRIT Data Users of the associated DC.

2.3.11.3 An R/CDC should not issue an update pricing file message that contains a cost
breakdown for single LRIT Data Users as well as for a group of LRIT Data Users (i.e. a choice of
either a single cost breakdown for each individual LRIT Data User or a cost breakdown for all
LRIT Data Users but not a combination of the two choices).

2.3.11.4 The properties of the pricing file attachment should feature the following:

.1 binary attachment to the pricing update message (Message 15);

.2 data compressed ZIP file containing XML file with file name
DataUserPriceYYYYMMDD_XXXX.xml contained in the ZIP file. XXXX
indicates the LRIT ID of the Contracting Government associated with the
XML pricing file when issued by an NDC. XXXX represents either the LRIT
ID of the Contracting Government associated with the XML pricing file or
the LRIT ID of the issuing DC when issued by either an R/CDC or the IDC.
XML files with LRIT IDs representing a DC contain a single pricing
breakdown for all LRIT Data Users.

2.3.11.5 The parameter definitions for the pricing file are:

.1 PositionReport: The charges for providing LRIT information transmitted by


the shipborne equipment at preset intervals6 7;

.2 Poll: The charges for providing LRIT information transmitted by the


shipborne equipment on demand8;

6
Refer to pre-scheduled position reports as defined in Note (2) in Table 1 of the Performance standards.
7
Preset intervals are the intervals specified in paragraph 4.4 of the Performance standards.
8
Refer to on demand reports as defined in Note (1) in Table 1 of the Performance standards.

Annex, page 92

.3 PeriodicRateChange: The charges for the remote configuration of the


shipborne equipment so as to transmit at intervals other than the preset9
ones (i.e. those requested by the LRIT Data User other than a SAR
service) and the charges for resetting the shipborne equipment to transmit
at preset interval;

.4 ArchivePositionReport: The charge for providing archived LRIT information


(i.e. all LRIT position reports received from a ship other than the last one);

.5 Currency: The ISO 4217:2001 alphabetic code of the currency associated


with each of the charges. DCs should only populate two currencies
(Special Drawing Rights (SDR) and a currency decided by the Contracting
Government) within this parameter. If more than two currencies are
populated then DCs are only obligated to process the first two currencies
within the currency parameter;

.6 DataCentreID: The LRIT ID of the DC that issued the pricing list;

.7 DataProviderID: The LRIT ID of the Contracting Government from whose


ships LRIT information originate;

.8 IssueDate: The date of issue of the pricing list; and

.9 EffectDate: The date on which the list of charges takes effect.

2.3.12 DCs providing services to a Contracting Government(s) other than that


establishing the centre

2.3.12.1 Any NDC providing services to a Contracting Government(s) other than that
establishing the centre should comply, and operate in accordance, with the requirements of the
Performance standards and of the technical specifications for the LRIT system as a CDC (i.e. for
all intent and purposes but not in name the NDC in question should be considered as a CDC)
and should:

.1 only internally route, if it decides to do so, LRIT information transmitted by


ships entitled to fly the flag of the Contracting Government which has
established it or is using its services. In such cases it should automatically
maintain journal(s) for all of the internally routed LRIT information and
should transmit such journals to the IDE at regular intervals in order to be
combined with the journal(s) maintained by the IDE; or

.2 refrain from internally routeing any LRIT information, including those


transmitted by ships entitled to fly the flag of the Contracting Government
which has established it or is using its services in case it decides not to
automatically maintain journal(s) and transmit these to the IDE. In such
cases it should route all LRIT messages stemming from requests
originating from the Contracting Governments, which established it or were
using the services of the NDC through the IDE.

Annex, page 93

2.3.12.2 Any RDC or CDC providing services to a Contracting Government(s) other than
those establishing the centre, should comply, and operate in accordance, with the requirements
of the Performance standards and the technical specifications for the LRIT system as an RDC or
CDC (i.e. for all intent and purposes the RDC or CDC in question continue to be an RDC or
CDC) and in this respect it should consider the Contracting Government(s) to which it provides
services as one of those establishing the centre.

3 Communication protocol strategy

3.1 General

3.1.1 Overview

3.1.1.1 An illustration of the various communications links in the LRIT system is shown in
Figure 5. LRIT messages flow through the LRIT system and along each communication link.
Communication protocols ensure that the messages are securely transported from one LRIT
component to the next.

3.1.1.2 All communications links should comply with the functional description as identified in
the Performance standards while the specific communications protocols stated in the
subsequent sections apply only to certain links as summarized in table 17. Communications
links 1, 2, 3, 4 and 6 do not have to implement the specific communications protocols detailed in
the subsequent sections.

3.2 Specific communications protocols

3.2.1 General

3.2.1.1 The communications protocols specified herein are standards based on the
functional description of the communication strategy outlined in the Performance standards.

3.2.2 Physical layer

3.2.2.1 The physical medium that the LRIT messages transverse and the associated
physical layer standards are not limited to one specific type or protocol. Thus, many different
low-level mediums such as fibre optics, copper lines, microwave and their associated physical
layer standard such as sonnet, OC192, T1, E1 are applicable.

3.2.3 Data link layer

3.2.3.1 The data link layer that sits on top of the physical layer is also not limited to one
single standard. There are numerous data link layer protocols that are acceptable and might be
used in the implementation of data communication between the various LRIT network
components. Some examples of applicable standards are: Ethernet, ATM, ISDN and 802.X.

3.2.4 Network layer

3.2.4.1 The network layer should be based upon version 4 (IPv4) of the Internet Protocol
specification. Later versions of the Internet Protocol should be reviewed for compliance prior to
implementation. Each component (e.g., IDE, DCs) in the LRIT network should have its own
unique URL/URI.

3.2.5 Transport layer

3.2.5.1 The transport layer should be based upon the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP).

3.2.6 Application layer

3.2.6.1 The application layer should use Transport Layer Security (TLS version 1.1 or later)
subsequently referred to as TLS and should communicate via XML-based SOAP messages
between the various LRIT components. The SOAP messages are exchanged between SOAP
nodes by binding to the HTTPS protocol as defined by SOAP 1.2.

3.3 Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) Overview

3.3.1 General

3.3.1.1 The application layer for exchanging LRIT messages amongst the LRIT components
should be based upon version 1.2 of the SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol) as defined by
the World Wide Web consortium (W3C). SOAP is an application layer protocol that allows
communications between nodes without requiring any specific communications network,
operating system or programming language. SOAP Version 1.2 specification was available is
http://www.w3.org/TR/soap12.

3.3.1.2 As detailed under the SOAP Binding section below, SOAP messages travel using
HTTP as the underlying protocol. Although HTTP by definition is a request/response
communication mechanism, it is suggested that designers and implementers adopt
asynchronous patterns and reliable non-blocking mechanisms to receive the HTTP response

I:\CIRC\MSC\01\1259-Rev-4.doc
MSC.1/Circ.1259/Rev.4
Annex, page 96

message to ensure an optimum performance. From the application implementation perspective,


messages travel one-way.

3.3.2 SOAP nodes

3.3.2.1 The LRIT components following the communications protocol strategy referenced in
this section functionally operate as SOAP nodes. Two asynchronous one-way message
connections are established between each connecting node. The LRIT messages as defined
earlier flow between SOAP nodes across the communication links illustrated in figure 5.

3.3.2.2 There should only be two nodes associated with the relaying of any SOAP message:
the initial sender and the ultimate receiver. Thus, there should be zero intermediary SOAP
nodes in the routeing path of any SOAP message.

3.3.2.3 SOAP messages should have the role attribute omitted or set to
"http://www.w3.org/2003/05/soap-envelope/role/ultimateReceiver" to indicate that messages are
sent to ultimate receivers and no intermediates.

3.3.2.4 SOAP forwarding mechanism is not used given that there are no intermediate nodes
involved. Whenever a received SOAP message content is to be sent to a different location, a
new SOAP message is to be constructed and sent via a SOAP node acting as initial sender.
Any possible association or correlation that might be established between an inbound SOAP
message and an outbound one is to be established and maintained at the application level by
the Software application modules.

3.3.3 SOAP processing

3.3.3.1 Software application modules operating on LRIT components that must follow the
communications protocol strategy should process SOAP messages as outlined in version 1.2 of
the SOAP specification. As mentioned above, LRIT Software modules act as ultimate receivers
and as such they should process the SOAP messages.

3.3.4 SOAP binding

3.3.4.1 SOAP messages should be exchanged between SOAP nodes by binding to the
HTTP(s) protocol as defined by SOAP 1.2.

3.3.4.2 SOAP messages should be sent using the HTTP POST web method only. The body
of an HTTP POST message should contain the message parameters embedded within a SOAP
message structure.

3.3.4.3 The following is an example of an HTTP header. Note that SOAP 1.2 message
bound to HTTP should have the Content-Type set to "application/soap+xml" (without quotes).

POST /LRITSample/Service HTTP/1.1


Host: localhost
Content-Type: application/soap+xml; charset=utf-8
Content-Length: length

I:\CIRC\MSC\01\1259-Rev-4.doc
MSC.1/Circ.1259/Rev.4
Annex, page 97

3.3.4.4 SOAP messages containing file attachments should be prepared by:

.1 zipping the file attachment; and

.2 constructing and transmitting the SOAP message, with zipped attachment


file, using the SOAP Message Transmission Optimization Mechanism
(MTOM) as described at http://www.w3.org/TR/soap12-mtom/.

3.3.5 Additional considerations and other aspects

3.3.5.1 Data security (e.g., encryption), authentication and authorization are out of the scope
of this sub-section and are to be managed by other layers.

3.3.5.2 In order to minimize complexity without jeopardizing security, data security should be
accomplished by securing the channel of communication.

4 Data security within the LRIT network

4.1 General

4.1.1 Adherence to the Performance standards

4.1.1.1 Data security for LRIT information exchanged between the various LRIT components
should be based upon the performance and functional requirements outlined in section 12 of the
Performance standards.

4.1.1.2 Authorization, identification, authentication, confidentiality and integrity are the key
functional concepts with respect to data security for the LRIT system. LRIT system availability
should be addressed via conformance to the Performance standards.

4.1.2 Authorization

4.1.2.1 All LRIT information existing in the LRIT system should not be made accessible to all
LRIT Data Users. Data authorization to LRIT Data Users should comply with the Regulation and
the Performance standards. Each LRIT component within the network should ensure that the
component with which it is communicating is authorized to receive the information being
transmitted in accordance with the DDP.

4.1.3 Identification and authentication

4.1.3.1 The various LRIT components in the LRIT system should perform identification and
authentication of each component before exchanging information using a standard
authentication process.

4.1.4 Confidentiality

4.1.4.1 The data exchanged between LRIT components should be encrypted for protection
and should not be disclosed to unauthorized entities during transit across the LRIT network.
This should be accomplished by using standard digital cryptography techniques featuring an
encryption strength equivalent to or better than 128 bits.

I:\CIRC\MSC\01\1259-Rev-4.doc
MSC.1/Circ.1259/Rev.4
Annex, page 98

4.1.5 Integrity

4.1.5.1 The data exchanged between LRIT components should not be altered by any entity
during transit across the LRIT system. Native TLS features providing integrity checks of the data
transport should be used. This should be accomplished by using standard digital cryptography
techniques featuring an encryption strength equivalent to or better than 128 bits.

4.2 Point to point data security strategy and protocol options

4.2.1 General

4.2.1.1 LRIT components within the LRIT system should communicate with one another
through secure point to point communication links.

4.2.2 Application layer security

4.2.2.1 Each LRIT component that forms a point to point communications link should use
Transport Layer Security (TLS version 1.1 or later) when exchanging LRIT information. The TLS
specification is defined by the Internet Engineering Task Force in RFC 4346.

4.2.2.2 The TLS protocol provides communications security over the Internet. The protocol
allows client/server applications to communicate in a way that is designed to prevent
eavesdropping, tampering, or message forgery and addresses the security requirements for
confidentiality and integrity.

4.2.3 Data confidentiality and integrity

4.2.3.1 Confidentiality and integrity is achieved via 128 bit (minimum) TLS encryption using a
cryptographic Hash Message Authentication Code (HMAC) symmetric algorithm. The HMAC
value protects both a message's integrity as well as its authenticity, by allowing verifiers (who
also possess the secret key) to detect any changes to the message content. HMAC can be
used with a variety of different hash algorithms.

4.2.3.2 Each LRIT component should use Key Hashing for Message Authentication Code
(HMAC) when communicating across a TLS secured link. HMAC should ensure that data is not
altered during transit and the data integrity is maintained.

4.2.3.3 HMAC can be used with a variety of different hash algorithms. TLS uses it in the
handshake with two different algorithms, MD5 and SHA-1, denoting these as HMAC_MD5
(secret, data) and HMAC_SHA (secret, data). Additional hash algorithms can be defined by
cipher suites and used to protect record data, but MD5 and SHA-1 are hard coded into the
description of the handshaking for this version of the protocol.

4.2.4 Identification and authentication

4.2.4.1 Public - Private Key Cryptography - Before exchanging LRIT information, LRIT
components connecting over the TLS link should use an industry standard, public - private
(asymmetric) key infrastructure strategy to ensure positive identification and authentication of the
LRIT components. The global industry standard public key infrastructure (PKI) certificate should
be issued by a trusted party to ensure the vetting of, and authentication of, user identities. The
Organization should ensure that the LRIT IDs are populated in the PKI certificate.

4.2.4.2 If either component detects an issue with the other LRIT component's PKI certificate,
then exchange of data information should not occur.

Technical specification for the LRIT Data Distribution Plan

Part I

Technical specifications

1 Introduction

1.1 This document presents the design and functionality of the LRIT Data Distribution
Plan (DDP) implementation, and should always be read together with:

.1 regulation V/19-1;

.2 the Revised performance standards and functional requirements for the


Long-range identification and tracking of ships;

.3 the Technical specifications for the International LRIT Data Exchange;

.4 the Technical specifications for communications within the LRIT system; and

.5 the XML schemas.

1.2 Unless expressly provided otherwise:

.1 Recipient components means the LRIT Data Centres (DCs) and the
International LRIT Data Exchange (IDE);

.2 DDP server means the DDP module of the Global Integrated Shipping
Information System (GISIS), including both the web-based human interface
to DDP information and the SOAP Web service interface for recipient
components as described in section 6;

.3 DDP information means data required to be contained in the DDP by either


regulation V/19-1 or the Performance standards and to be communicated
to all recipient components;

.4 Publishing means generating a new version of the DDP in response to


changes to DDP information by Contracting Governments or other parties.
DDP versions and publishing schedules are described in detail in section 2;

.5 Any reference to a Contracting Government automatically includes


non-metropolitan areas to which the Contracting Government concerned
has notified the Organization that it has extended the application of
the 1974 SOLAS Convention;

.6 Any reference to non-metropolitan area(s) applies only as far as the


non-metropolitan area(s) to which the Contracting Government concerned
has extended the application of the 1974 SOLAS Convention.

1.3 The following notations are used in this document:

.1 <ElemName> refers to an XML element named "ElemName";

.2 @attrName refers to an XML attribute named "attrName".

I:\CIRC\MSC\01\1259-Rev-4.doc
MSC.1/Circ.1259/Rev.4
Annex, page 104

1.4 The following sections of this document cover issues relating to:

.1 the publishing and versioning of the DDP (section 2);

.2 the format of the XML representations of DDP information (section 3);

.3 the GML format for uploading geographical areas to the DDP (section 4);

.4 constraints on polygons of geographical areas contained in the DDP


(section 5);

.5 the DDP server and its external interfaces (section 6).

2 DDP content, versioning and publishing

2.1 The information to be included in the DDP is specified in section 11.2 of the
Performance standards.

Types of DDP information

2.2 Each item of DDP information is categorized into one of two types: regular or
immediate.

2.2.1 The categorization distinguishes between DDP information that requires urgent
implementation (immediate) from those which for technical reasons require a longer period of
time to be implemented by recipient components or which can be processed in batches in order
to increase the efficiency of the system (regular).

2.3 Items of DDP information categorized as regular are:

.1 Contracting Governments, including non-metropolitan areas to which the


application of the Convention has been extended;

.2 Contact points (National, SAR Services, ASP, DC, IDE, DDP server, and
LRIT Coordinator);

.3 Geographical areas (internal waters, territorial sea, seaward outer


boundary of 1,000 NM, custom coastal State areas for standing orders);

.4 Ports under the under the jurisdiction of Contracting Governments;

.5 Port facilities under the jurisdiction of Contracting Governments;

.6 Places under the jurisdiction of Contracting Governments;

.7 SAR Services of Contracting Governments;

.8 ASP-related information;

.9 LRIT ID of the Data Centre used by a Contracting Government; and

.10 LRIT Coordinator-related information.

I:\CIRC\MSC\01\1259-Rev-4.doc
MSC.1/Circ.1259/Rev.4
Annex, page 105

2.4 Items of DDP information categorized as immediate are:

.1 Exclusion orders pursuant to the provisions of regulation V/19-19.1;

.2 Operational information relating to LRIT Data Centres (web service


endpoint (URL/URI) or contact details of the DC);

.3 Coastal State standing orders, where the geographical areas to be


monitored have already been implemented by DCs. (Note that
geographical areas, including custom coastal State areas, are regular DDP
information, and generally take 24 h10 after publishing to be implemented
by recipient components.);

.4 Information relating to the IDE; and

.5 Information relating to the DDP server.

Versions of the DDP

2.5 Version numbers are used to uniquely identify the set of information contained within
the DDP at a particular point in time.

2.6 The set of regular items of DDP information and the set of immediate items of
DDP information are versioned independently of each other.

2.7 The term regular version is used when referring to a set of all regular DDP
information, and has a unique regular version number associated with it. The term immediate
version is used when referring to a set of all immediate DDP information, and has a unique
immediate version number associated with it.

2.7.1 The regular version number and the immediate version number are each
represented by a single integer number, starting with 1 for the first version and incrementing with
each new version of the DDP resulting from changes to regular information and to immediate
information respectively.

2.8 A DDP version number is composed of a regular version number and an immediate
version number, forming the unique identifier of the complete set of all DDP information as
implemented by all LRIT system components at a particular point in time.

2.8.1 A DDP version number has the following format:

<Regular version number><colon><Immediate version number>

An example of a DDP version number is 22:67, indicating the version of the DDP implemented at
a particular point in time which consists of the set of regular information at version 22, and the
set of immediate information at version 67.

Publishing and implementation times

2.9 Changes to regular DDP information result in the publishing of a new regular version
of the DDP.

10
Publishing and implementation times of the DDP for recipient components are specified below.

I:\CIRC\MSC\01\1259-Rev-4.doc
MSC.1/Circ.1259/Rev.4
Annex, page 106

2.9.1 Changes to regular information are batched daily, and published in a new regular
version at 00:00 UTC on the day following that in which they were made.

2.10 Changes to immediate DDP information result in the publishing of a new immediate
version of the DDP.

2.10.1 Changes to immediate information are published in a new immediate version of the
DDP at the time the change is made within the DDP.

2.11 The specific time of publishing of a new regular version or immediate version of the
DDP, and the corresponding time at which it should be implemented by all recipient components,
are specified within the message transmitted by the DDP server (described in detail in section 3).

2.11.1 In general, a newly-published regular version of the DDP is implemented by all


recipient components at 00:00 UTC on the day following the time of publishing of the regular
version.

2.11.2 In general, a newly-published immediate version of the DDP is implemented by all


recipient components one h following the time of publishing of the immediate version.

Illustration of publishing and implementation times of the DDP

2.12 Figure I-1 provides an illustrative sample of publishing and implementation times of
new versions of the DDP.

2.12.1 The upper-level11 markers indicate the time of publishing of new regular versions
(indicated in the figure by a single-lined border) and immediate versions (double-lined border) of
the DDP, along with their associated version numbers.

2.12.2 The lower-level markers12 indicate the time at which the published versions are
implemented by DCs and the IDE within the LRIT system, along with the associated
DDP version number in effect from that point in time.

2.12.3 In the example, the version of the DDP implemented within the LRIT system
at 00:57 UTC on 2 June 2009 is 81:65 that is, regular version 81 and immediate version 65 of
the DDP is implemented within the LRIT system at that time.

2.12.4 Note that the immediate version number is incremented each time an immediate
version of the DDP is published, which happens at the time a change is made to any immediate
DDP information. The regular version number is incremented each time a regular version of the
DDP is published, which happens at 00:00 UTC on the day following that in which a change is
made to any regular DDP information.

2.12.5 No regular version is published on 00:00 UTC on 3 June 2009, meaning that no
changes were made to regular DDP information during 2 June 2009.

2.12.6 Figure I-1 illustrates how changes to regular and immediate DDP information are
published and implemented independently of each other, together forming the DDP version
number of the DDP which is implemented within the LRIT system at a particular point in time.

3 XML representations of DDP information

3.1 Information contained within the DDP and changes to this information are
communicated by the DDP server to recipient components in defined XML formats. XML data
formats should use UTF-8 to encode Unicode characters in the English language.

3.2 The Communications specifications gives the complete XML Schema definition
applicable to the DDP, in the file DDP.xsd.

3.3 The two representations of DDP information are:

.1 Full DDP, which contains all DDP information at a specific DDP version
number which is implemented within the LRIT system; and

.2 Incremental update, which details the changes resulting from the insertion,
amendment or deletion of specific DDP information by Contracting
Governments and other parties.

Datatypes used in the full DDP and incremental updates

3.4 In addition to primitive XML datatypes, several custom datatypes for representing
DDP information are defined within the XML Schema for the DDP.

3.5 The following sub-paragraphs describe custom datatypes and the formats of their
key values for representing DDP information within the full DDP and in incremental updates.

3.5.1 Geographical coordinates of points given within geographical polygons and


positional elements (e.g., <Polygon> and <Position>) are given as follows:

.1 Coordinate order of longitude followed by latitude;

.2 Negative values indicate south or west cardinal directions and positive


values indicate north or east, for latitudes and longitudes respectively; and

.3 All values are in decimal degrees, to two decimal places.

3.5.2 Datatypes representing unique identifiers:

.1 @locode of <Port> A globally unique code for ports belonging to


Contracting Governments, from the UN/LOCODE database. The code is a
five-character string, where the first two characters form the ISO 3166-1:1997
Alpha-2 code for the Contracting Government or non metropolitan territory
where the port is located. The subsequent three characters are usually
three letters, but may contain digits where a temporary code has been
assigned by the Organization pending formal assignment of a code by the
UN ECE13 (who maintain UN/LOCODE);

.2 @placeCode of <Place> A globally unique code for places under the


jurisdiction of Contracting Governments. This is a six-character string
where the first three letters are the ISO 3166-1:1997 Alpha-3 code of the
Contracting Government or non metropolitan territory where the place is
located, followed by 3 digits; and

13
The UN/LOCODE website is at http://www.unece.org/locode.

I:\CIRC\MSC\01\1259-Rev-4.doc
MSC.1/Circ.1259/Rev.4
Annex, page 109

.3 @imoPortFacilityNumber of <PortFacility> The "IMO Port Facility Number"


of the port facility, which is a globally unique identifier assigned by the
Maritime Security module of GISIS to port facilities declared by Contracting
Governments. This value is the concatenation of the UN/LOCODE of the
port containing the facility and four digits, separated by a hyphen.

3.5.3 Datatypes relating to Contracting Governments and non-metropolitan territories


(represented with <ContractingGovernment> and <Territory> respectively):

.1 @isoCode of <Name> The ISO 3166-1:1997 Alpha-3 code of the


Contracting Government or non-metropolitan territory. Where ISO-assigned
codes are unavailable, codes have been assigned within the reserved
codespace for custom applications and are as defined for use within GISIS;

.2 The elements <InternalWaters>, <TerritorialSea>,


<SeawardAreaOf1000NM> and <CustomCoastalAreas> contain 0 or more
elements of this type each describing a closed polygonal geographical
area, subject to the restrictions set out in section 5. Each of these
elements has an @areaID attribute uniquely identifying the area within the
DDP. (Table I-1 sets out the format of the values of this attribute.)

.3 A <StandingOrder> for a Contracting Government within


<CoastalStateStandingOrders> lists the areaID values of polygons defined
in either the <InternalWaters>, <TerritorialSea>,
<SeawardAreaOf1000NM> or <CustomCoastalAreas> of that Contracting
Government, which should be monitored by DCs as the areas for which the
coastal State standing order is in effect; and

.4 <DataCentreID> specifies the LRIT ID of the Data Centre serving the


Contracting Government. The Data Centre specified is defined in
<DataCentre> with the corresponding value of @lritID within
<DataCentres>.

3.5.4 Datatypes for information about DCs, the IDE, and the DDP server:

.1 <DataCentre>:

.1 @lritID is the LRIT ID of the Data Centre;

.2 <IDEInterfaceWebServiceLocation> is the URI14 of the SOAP


endpoint for connections by the IDE; and

.3 <DDPInterfaceWebServiceLocation> is the URI14 of the SOAP


endpoint for connections from the DDP server.

.2 <IDE>:

.1 @lritID is the LRIT ID of the IDE;

.2 <DCInterfaceWebServiceLocation> is the URI15 of the SOAP


endpoint for connections by Data Centres; and

14
The hostname (fully-qualified domain name) part of the URI specified for <IDEInterfaceWebServiceLocation>
must exactly match the hostname part of the URI specified for <DDPInterfaceWebServiceLocation>.

I:\CIRC\MSC\01\1259-Rev-4.doc
MSC.1/Circ.1259/Rev.4
Annex, page 110

.3 <DDPInterfaceWebServiceLocation> is the URI15 of the SOAP


endpoint for connections by the DDP server.

.3 <DDPServer>:

.1 @lritId is the LRIT ID of the DDP server; and

.2 <WebServiceLocation> is the URI of the SOAP endpoint for


connections by the IDE and by Data Centres.

Full DDP

3.6 The full DDP is represented in a single XML file, with root element
<DataDistributionPlan>. It contains all DDP information as implemented within the LRIT system
at a particular point in time, and is identified by its unique DDP version number.

3.7 The following attributes in the root element of the full DDP specify the
DDP version number and publishing and implementation times of the DDP being represented:

.1 @versionNum: The DDP version number of the full DDP represented


(e.g., 45:210), as described in paragraph 2.8;

.2 @regularVersionPublishedAt: The time of publishing of the regular


DDP information in this version of the DDP;

.3 @regularVersionImplementationAt: The time of implementation of the


regular DDP information in this version of the DDP within the LRIT system;

.4 @immediateVersionPublishedAt: The time of publishing of the immediate


DDP information in this version of the DDP; and

.5 @immediateVersionImplementationAt: The time of implementation of the


immediate DDP information in this version of the DDP within the LRIT
system.

Incremental update

3.8 An incremental update details the changes to DDP information between two specific
versions of the DDP which are or have been implemented within the LRIT system, specified in
an XML file with root element <DataDistributionPlan-IncrementalUpdate>.

3.9 An incremental update is applied to an initial version of the DDP (the base version)
transforming it into a version of the DDP consolidating the changes contained within the update
(the target version).

3.9.1 The following attributes in the root element of an incremental update indicate the
base version of the DDP to which the updates must be applied, and resulting (target) version the
DDP once all updates have been applied:

.1 @baseRegularVersionNum: The regular version number of the full DDP to


which this update should be applied;

15
The hostname (fully-qualified domain name) part of the URI specified for <DCInterfaceWebServiceLocation>
must exactly match the hostname part of the URI specified for <DDPInterfaceWebServiceLocation>.

I:\CIRC\MSC\01\1259-Rev-4.doc
MSC.1/Circ.1259/Rev.4
Annex, page 111

.2 @targetRegularVersionNum: The regular version number of the resulting


full DDP after this update has been applied;

.3 @baseImmediateVersionNum: The immediate version number of the full


DDP to which this update should be applied; and

.4 @targetImmediateVersionNum: The immediate version number of the


resulting full DDP after this update has been applied.

3.9.2 The @baseRegularVersionNum and @targetRegularVersionNum attributes are


present only if the update contains information regarding changes to regular DDP information.
The @baseImmediateVersionNum and @targetImmediateVersionNum attributes are present
only if the update contains information regarding changes to immediate DDP information.

3.10 The root element of an incremental update contains a series of zero or more
<Regular> and <Immediate> elements, each of which details changes between two consecutive
versions of the DDP.

3.11 The root element will contain no child elements if there are no changes applicable to
the base and target versions specified for the incremental update.

3.12 A <Regular> element represents changes between one regular version of the DDP,
and the regular version following it. Similarly, an <Immediate> element represents changes
between one immediate version of the DDP and the immediate version following it.

3.12.1 Therefore, for incremental updates spanning multiple regular versions or multiple
immediate versions, multiple <Regular> or <Immediate> elements are present, each one
separately enumerating the changes between two consecutive versions, starting at the base
version and ending with the target version of the incremental update.

3.13 The following attributes of the <Regular> and <Immediate> elements indicate the
base and target version numbers before and after applying the changes detailed within them:

.1 @baseRegularVersionNum (in <Regular> elements only): The regular


version number of the DDP to which the changes in this element should be
applied;

.2 @baseImmediateVersionNum (in <Immediate> elements only): The


immediate version number of the DDP to which the changes in this element
should be applied;

.3 @targetRegularVersionNum (in <Regular> elements only): The regular


version number of the resulting DDP after the changes in this element have
been applied;

.4 @targetImmediateVersionNum (in <Immediate> elements only): The


immediate version number of the resulting DDP after the changes in this
element have been applied;

.5 @targetPublishedAt: The time of publishing of the version represented by


@targetRegularVersionNum or @targetImmediateVersionNum; and

.6 @targetImplementationAt: The time of implementation of


the version represented by @targetRegularVersionNum or
@targetImmediateVersionNum.

I:\CIRC\MSC\01\1259-Rev-4.doc
MSC.1/Circ.1259/Rev.4
Annex, page 112

3.14 The child elements of <Regular> and <Immediate> elements represent the operation
to be performed on the specified item of DDP information:

.1 <Insert> for the insertion of new information into the DDP;

.2 <Update> for updates to existing information within the DDP; and

.3 <Delete> for the deletion from the DDP of an element of information.

3.15 The order of operations listed within in an incremental update is significant, and
should be applied sequentially from the top downwards when updating existing DDP information.

3.15.1 It should not be assumed that the operations exactly represent atomic transactions
on the DDP server.

@xPath attribute in incremental update elements

3.16 The value of @xPath is an XML Path Language16 value indicating the location of the
item of DDP information within the full DDP of the specified base version where the change has
occurred.

3.16.1 @xPath gives an absolute reference to an element within the full DDP. Thus, it
always begins with "/DataDistributionPlan".

3.17 Usage and processing of the @xPath value is optional for implementers of recipient
components, depending on their preferred methods for identifying the items of DDP information
within their own systems which are affected by an incremental update.

3.18 For each of the operations, the value of @xPath is as follows:

.1 <Insert>: the node in the base full DDP under which the data has been
inserted;

.2 <Update>: the node in the base full DDP whose contents have been
changed; and

.3 <Delete>: the node in the base full DDP which has been deleted.

Incrementable datatypes

3.19 Tables I-1 and I-2 list the datatypes, defined in the XML Schema for the full DDP,
which can be present within the insert, update and delete operations enumerated within an
incremental update.

3.19.1 Table I-1 lists the datatypes corresponding to regular DDP information, which are the
only datatypes that may be present within <Regular> elements of an incremental update.

3.19.2 Table I-2 lists the datatypes representing immediate DDP information, which are the
only datatypes that may be present within <Immediate> elements of an incremental update.

3.20 The tables also specify unique identifiers for each of these datatypes, and the format
of their values. These identifiers uniquely identify the corresponding item of DDP information
within the full DDP.

4 Uploading information on geographical areas

4.1 DDP information on geographical areas may be uploaded by each Contracting


Government to the DDP server, as polygons representing: (1) the water landward of baselines
(referred to as InternalWaters); (2) the territorial sea (referred to as TerritorialSea);
(3) 1,000 nautical miles area (referred to as SeawardAreaOf1000NM); and (4) other custom
definitions of geographical areas within the 1,000 nautical miles area (referred to as
CustomCoastalAreas), which may be used for the purposes of the coastal State standing order.

4.2 The file to be uploaded must conform to the specifications given in this section in
order to be successfully accepted and processed by the DDP server.

Upload file format

4.3 The uploaded file must be a valid GML17 document, whose root node is of the
gml:MultiSurface datatype.

4.4 Coordinate values representing polygons given within <gml:posList> must conform to
the conventions described in paragraph 3.5.1, which are reproduced here:

.1 Coordinate order of longitude followed by latitude;

.2 Negative values indicate south or west cardinal directions and positive


values indicate north or east, for latitudes and longitudes respectively; and

.3 All values are in decimal degrees, to two decimal places.

4.5 The @gml:id attribute of the root node must have one of the following values
corresponding to the type of boundary information being uploaded:

.1 "InternalWaters";

.2 "TerritorialSea";

.3 "SeawardAreaOf1000NM"; or

.4 "CustomCoastalAreas"

4.6 The root node may contain any number of child elements of the GML Polygon
datatype, each of which must be specified in accordance with the constraints given section 5.

4.7 The DDP server does not perform any validation of the geographical areas covered
by the polygons defined within the uploaded file.

4.7.1 The DDP server only checks uploaded polygons against the constraints given in
section 5 with respect to:

.1 Polygons being closed (i.e. first vertex matching the last);

.2 Precision of 2 decimal places in the decimal degree value of a coordinate;

.3 Latitudinal and longitudinal components of a coordinate being within the


valid range of integer values for latitudes and longitudes respectively;

.4 The total number of polygons for each type of boundary; and

.5 The total number of vertices per polygon, depending on type of boundary.

4.8 The @gml:id attributes of these polygons may, optionally, be formed according to the
formats set out in Table I-1 for the lrit:polygonType datatype.

4.8.1 If the @gml:id attribute of a polygon correctly matches the format defined for the type
of boundary it defines, it will be processed by the DDP server as part of the upload process.
Otherwise, the @gml:id of the polygon is ignored.

4.9 Each polygon may optionally include a @gml:description attribute, which is


processed by the DDP server as the caption for that polygon (represented in an <lrit:Caption>).

Sample GML upload file

4.10 The text following paragraph 4.10.1 constitutes a sample GML file representing the
internal waters areas for Contracting Government with LRIT ID '1234' which may be uploaded to
the DDP server.

4.10.1 This example is purely to illustrate the format of the expected upload file, and should
not be considered as demonstrating a valid geographical area or polygon definition with regards
to the <gml:posList> values used:

5 Constraints on polygons of geographical areas18

5.1 The following constraints, in addition to others specified in this section, should be
adhered to when defining geographical areas within the DDP for a particular Contracting
Government:

.1 InternalWaters polygons:

.1 The geographical coordinate points of all vertices should be in


degrees and decimal degrees to 2 decimal places;

.2 The average separation between adjacent vertices should not


be less than 6 nautical miles. For Contracting Governments
which are also Small Island Developing States19, the average
separation between adjacent vertices could be reduced to less
than 6 nautical miles, however it should not be reduced to less
than 2 nautical miles;

.3 The total number of vertices for all polygons should not be more
than 10,000 vertices; and

.4 The total number of polygons should not be more than 1,000


polygons.

.2 TerritorialSeas polygons:

.1 The geographical coordinate points of all vertices should be in


degrees and decimal degrees to 2 decimal places;

.2 The average separation between adjacent vertices should not


be less than 6 nautical miles. For Contracting Governments
which are also Small Island Developing States20, the average
separation between adjacent vertices could be reduced to less
than 6 nautical miles, however it should not be reduced to less
than 2 nautical miles;
18
The Committee, at its eighty-sixth session, agreed that:
.1 Contracting Governments which are State Parties to either the United Nations Convention on the Law
of the Sea or the Convention on the Territorial Sea and the Contiguous Zone are expected to define the
geographical areas for the internal waters and the territorial seas for which they wish to see included in
the LRIT Data Distribution Plan in accordance with the provisions of the international treaty they are
party to;
.2 Contracting Governments which are neither State Parties to the United Nations Convention on the Law
of the Sea nor to the Convention on the Territorial Sea and the Contiguous Zone are expected to define
the geographical areas for the internal waters and the territorial seas for which they wish to see included
in the LRIT Data Distribution Plan in accordance with the provisions of international customary law as
agreed during MSC 84;
.3 Contracting Governments, if they so wish, have the option to advise the Organization and all other
Contracting Governments that they do not wish to provide geographical coordinates for either internal
waters and/or territorial seas and as a result they allow the other Contracting Governments to receive
LRIT information transmitted by all ships when within their internal waters and from ships entitled to fly
their flag when located within their territorial waters; and
.4 regulation V/19-1.13 already provides that Contracting Governments may report to the Organization any
case where they consider that provisions of this regulation or of any other related requirements
established by the Organization have not been or are not being observed or adhered to.

MSC.1/Circ.1259/Rev.4
Annex, page 118

.3 The total number of vertices for all polygons should not be more
than 10,000 vertices; and

.4 The total number of polygons should not be more than 1,000


polygons.

.3 SeawardAreaOf1000NM polygons;

.1 The geographical coordinate points of all vertices should be in


degrees and decimal degrees to two decimal places;

.2 The minimum separation between adjacent vertices should not be


less than 6 nautical miles (1% error rate) or the overall minimum
average (mean) distance between adjacent vertices should not be
less than 40 nautical miles;

.3 The total number of vertices for all polygons should not be more
than 1,000 vertices; and

.4 The total number of polygons should not be more than 10


polygons.

.4 CustomCoastalAreas polygon:

.1 The geographical coordinate points of all vertices should be in


degrees and decimal degrees to two decimal places;

.2 The average separation between adjacent vertices should not be


less than 600 m;

.3 The total number of vertices for each polygon should not be more
than 100 vertices;

.4 The total number of polygons should not be more than 100


polygons; and

.5 All polygons should be entirely within the area covered by the


SeawardAreaOf1000NM and InternalWaters polygons.

5.2 In case any one of the geographical areas to be represented by the polygons
referred to in paragraph 5.1 straddles the meridian of 180 degrees longitude, the geographical
area in question should be represented by two polygons having a common boundary along
the 180 degrees longitude.

5.3 All polygons within each set of InternalWaters, TerritorialSeas,


SeawardAreaOf1000NM and CustomCoastalAreas should be disjoint (i.e. no overlap between
polygons within each set).

5.3.1 This constraint should be understood as not preventing adjacent polygons to have a
common boundary defined by the same geographical coordinate points, provided the
geographical area represented by the two polygons do not overlap.

I:\CIRC\MSC\01\1259-Rev-4.doc
MSC.1/Circ.1259/Rev.4
Annex, page 119

5.4 All polygons should be technically valid, simple polygons (i.e. a simple polygon is
closed polygonal chain of line segments that do not cross each other). For any single polygon to
be a technically valid simple polygon, the following should be true:

.1 The polygon should be continuous and closed (i.e. the first and last vertices
should be identical), and should not contain any interior rings;

.2 The polygon should have at least four total vertices and three distinct
vertices (i.e. the first and last vertices are identical);

.3 The sides of the polygon should not intersect. In other words, the polygon
should not be self-intersecting; and

.4 The polygon should not contain duplicate vertices with the exception of the
first and last vertices being identical.

5.5 Contracting Governments claiming archipelagic State status should define polygons
in a manner that conforms with the purpose and the objectives of regulation V/19-1 and so as to
allow Contracting Governments, in a port or coastal State capacity and in accordance with the
provisions of regulation V/19-1, to request and be able to receive LRIT information transmitted
by ships when located within waters which they might be claiming in an archipelagic State
capacity.

6 The DDP server

6.1 The DDP server is the LRIT system component which holds all DDP information and
provides the following two interfaces:

.1 secure, web-based access (the web interface) to Contracting Governments


and other authorized users to view, insert, update and delete information,
as appropriate; and

.2 a Web service interface in compliance with the standards specified within


the Communications specifications, for the exchange of LRIT messages
with the IDE and DCs.

6.2 The DDP server is implemented as module of the Global Integrated Shipping
Information System (GISIS). With regards to LRIT and the DDP information, it integrates with
GISIS in the following respects:

.1 The IMO Web Accounts21 system is used for securing user access to the
system via a login and password, issued to authorized users with the
appropriate roles assigned;

.2 Common coding systems from GISIS are used where applicable, in


particular for country codes (based on ISO 3166 1:1997), ports (based on
UN/LOCODE) and port facilities;

21
Information on the IMO Web Accounts system is given in Circular letter No.2892.

I:\CIRC\MSC\01\1259-Rev-4.doc
MSC.1/Circ.1259/Rev.4
Annex, page 120

.3 Data from other GISIS modules relevant to the DDP are sourced directly
from those modules. Specifically, this refers to information on port facilities
from the Maritime Security module, and information on SAR services from
the COMSAR module.

6.3 The users of the DDP module with respect to its web interface and the rights of
access of each type of user are specified in Table I-3 below.

access to the web interface of the DDP module.

6.5 In the case of DDP information contained within other GISIS modules, such as with
the Maritime Security and COMSAR modules, users will need to have the appropriate
authorizations for those modules in order to perform the necessary actions.

6.5.1 Authorizations to other GISIS modules are granted in accordance with existing
procedures that have been established for them.

Communications within the LRIT system

6.6 The DDP server sends and receives LRIT SOAP messages, as defined in the
Communications specifications, from the IDE and DCs directly. Messages to and from DCs are
not relayed via the IDE.

6.7 The DDP server sends and/or accepts the following messages from recipient
components:

.1 SystemStatus (sent and received) A SystemStatus message is


transmitted to the IDE every 30 min, indicating the "health" of the DDP
server. In addition, upon receipt of a SystemStatus from a DC, the DDP
server will respond by sending a SystemStatus message back to the DC.

.2 Receipt (sent and received) Receipt messages are sent to any recipient
component in the event of an error being encountered by the DDP server,
as defined within the Technical specifications for communications within the
LRIT system. The DDP server will accept Receipt messages from any
recipient component, with any further processing.

.3 DDPNotification (sent only) DDPNotification messages are sent by the


DDP server upon the publishing either of a regular version or of an
immediate version of the DDP.

Upon receipt of DDPNotification, recipient components should send a


DDPRequest message to the DDP server the with the appropriate
parameters in order to be sent an incremental update identifying the
changes in DDP information.

Annex, page 122

.4 DDPRequest (received only) DDPRequest messages may be sent by


recipient components at any time in order to request either a full DDP at a
particular version, current or archived, or an incremental update relative to
the version they are currently implementing (see paragraph 6.7).

Recipient components should send a DDPRequest message upon, or


shortly after, receipt of a DDPNotification message from the DDP server.

.5 DDPUpdate (sent only) This message is sent by the DDP server (only)
upon receipt of a DDPRequest message from recipient components. It
contains as an attachment either a full DDP or an incremental update,
depending on the parameters specified in the received DDPRequest.

6.8 When requesting incremental updates, the following values for the UpdateType
parameter of the message may be specified:

.1 Regular Incremental updates a request for changes to regular DDP


information only, made between the most recently published regular
version of the DDP and the regular version currently implemented by the
requesting component (as specified in the request message);

.2 Immediate Incremental updates a request for changes to immediate


DDP information only, made between the most recently published
immediate version and the immediate version currently implemented by the
requesting component (as specified in the request message); and

.3 All Incremental updates a request for all changes to both regular and
immediate DDP information made between the most recently published
regular versions and immediate version respectively, and the DDP version
currently implemented by the requesting component (as specified in the
request message).

6.9 With reference to the example timeline given in Figure I-1 of section 2, Table I-4,
below, illustrates the contents of the incremental update sent by the DDP server in response to a
DDPRequest message from a recipient component, depending on the version of the DDP it has
implemented and the type(s) of update it is requesting:

Annex 5

Criteria for the location of the


International LRIT Data Centre and the International LRIT Data Exchange

Physical location

1 The physical location of the IDC and IDE should be such so as to ensure that the
IDC and IDE meet the availability requirements and provide the expected quality of service.

2 The physical location of the IDC and IDE, including any backup sites should be
accessible to the LRIT Co-ordinator.

3 The IDC and IDE should have a disaster recovery site accessible every day of the
year 24 h a day.

4 The IDC and IDE should have adequate physical security including protection from,
inter alia, vandalism, environmental disasters and fire.

Communications infrastructure

5 The IDC should have access to reliable and adequate communication networks so
as to have the needed links with Application Service Providers(s), Communications Service
Provider(s), the IDE, other DCs and the DDP.

6 The IDE should have access to reliable and adequate communication networks so
as to have the needed links with the IDC, other DCs and the DDP.

7 The IDC and IDE should have access to reliable and adequate communication
networks to enable the LRIT Co-ordinator to have remote access to the IDC and the IDE.

8 The IDC and IDE should be able to accommodate multiple internet service providers
(ISP).

9 The ISP links should be, if possible, fibre optic with satellite communications for
back up. However, terrestrial microwave communications may also serve in a back up capacity.

10 The IDC and IDE should have the required redundant firewalls to ensure the required
data integrity.

11 Although it is expected that communications links with the IDC and IDE will likely be
over the internet, leased lines may also be used however, in no case should broadcast
connections be used for any links within the LRIT system.

12 All communications links should have adequate and scaleable data bandwidth.

Supply of power

13 The IDC and IDE should be provided with an adequate power from a main,
transitional and emergency power source so as to ensure their uninterrupted functioning and in
order to meet the availability requirements.

I:\CIRC\MSC\01\1259-Rev-4.doc
MSC.1/Circ.1259/Rev.4
Annex, page 132

Equipment and spare parts

14 The IDC and IDE should have local backup servers with seamless switch-over
between servers locally.

15 The IDC and IDE should also have remote backup servers which should have close
to seamless switch-over.

16 The IDC and IDE should have redundancy in IDC and IDE equipment.

17 The main and backup equipments and systems of the IDC and IDE should be
geographically distributed to the extent that is practically and reasonably possible.

18 The IDC and IDE should be provided with an adequate supply of spare parts or
should have arrangements in place which ensure the prompt and timely delivery of any needed
spare parts.

Availability

19 The IDC and IDE should operate 24 h a day 7 days a week with an availability
of 99.9% over the year and 95% over any day.

Observation

20 The above criteria, although they have been developed in relation to location of the
IDC and IDE, should be considered as applying equally to all DCs and the DDP.

for the LRIT system (refer to paragraphs 1.1.2.1.3 to 1.1.2.1.7 above) as far as the IDE, the
International LRIT Data Centre, the DDP and the DDP server are concerned, include a number
of requirements which cannot be verified through testing.

1.1.3.2 As the current arrangements envisaged by the Maritime Safety Committee


(Committee) in relation to the establishment of the LRIT system do not provide for any form of
physical inspections on location it is the responsibility of those establishing DCs, the IDE, the
DDP and the DDP server to verify and document their compliance with the related requirements
and to produce such documentation when requested to do so by the Committee.

1.1.3.3 The tests envisaged in the present document assume that those establishing DCs,
the IDE, the DDP and the DDP server have completed the process of verifying and documenting
such compliance prior to entering the prototype, developmental, integration or modification
testing phase, as the case may be.

2 Testing protocols

2.1 Overview

2.1.1 General

2.1.1.1 The testing protocols for the LRIT system are critical to ensure a successful system
and in order for it to become and remain operational.

2.1.1.2 The prototype phase establishes the prototype environment and the connection of
the LRIT system prototype components. After the prototype phase, a test environment and the
production environment would be established and open for new DCs to begin testing, beginning
with developmental testing within the testing environment and graduating to integration testing in
the production environment. The modification testing phase, which also includes a testing
environment and the production environment, provides for testing of changes in the LRIT system
on or after 00:01 UTC on 31 December 2008 following the adoption of amendments to the
requirements referred to in paragraph 1.1.2.1, other than amendments to those referred to in
paragraphs 1.1.2.1.3 to 1.1.2.1.7 which may be found necessary during the initial setting up of
the system.

2.1.1.3 During the initial setting up and testing of the LRIT system, which on the basis of the
available information is expected to continue after 31 December 2008, it may become necessary
to conduct additional tests as a result of the adoption of amendments to the technical
specifications for the LRIT system referred to in paragraphs 1.1.2.1.3 to 1.1.2.1.7. Such
additional tests may entail consequential amendments to the test procedures and test cases set

I:\CIRC\MSC\01\1294-Rev-2.doc
MSC.1/Circ.1294/Rev.2
Annex, page 4

out in the appendices 2 to 4 of the annex or the adoption of additional test procedures and test
cases. The related additional tests will be determined at the time of the adoption of the related
amendments to the aforesaid technical specifications, together with the technical and
administrative requirements and arrangements to be followed for conducting such tests, as well
as the extent to which components of the system which have already completed or are
undertaking testing should be retested.

2.1.2 Testing phases

2.1.2.1 There are four distinct testing phases as follows:

.1 Prototype testing phase 1 July 2008 to the date of completion of the


testing of the prototype IDE, the prototype DDP and DDP server and a
satisfactory number of prototype DCs, subject to the decisions of the
Committee

This is the first step in the establishment of the LRIT system and during this
phase the prototype IDE, the prototype DDP and DDP server and a number
of prototype DCs would undergo communications and functional tests with
a view to verifying that they meet the relevant requirements of regulation
V/19-1, of the Performance standards and of the technical specifications for
the LRIT system.

In addition, the purpose of this phase is to ascertain whether there is a


need to amend in any way any of the technical specifications for the LRIT
system.

The DCs that satisfactorily completed all communications and functional


tests during the prototype testing phase would form, together with the
prototype IDE and the prototype DDP and DDP server, the production
environment and are not required to undergo or satisfactorily complete any
tests during either the developmental or the integration testing phases.
In addition, the aforesaid DCs would form the first testing environment.

The results of the prototype testing phase will be reported to and reviewed
by the Committee, at its eighty-fifth session. The end date of this phase will
be prior to 31 December 2008 and will be determined by the aforesaid
session of the Committee;

.2 Developmental testing phase date of establishment of the testing


environment5 to the date to be decided by the Committee

The purpose of this phase is to enable prototype DCs which have either not
been able to satisfactorily complete all communications and functional tests
during the prototype testing phase or other DCs that are ready for testing
after the formation of the prototype environment to become, through the
integration testing phase, part of the production environment during the
initial setting up of the LRIT system. As a result, with the exception of the
prototype DCs that satisfactorily completed all communications and
functionality tests during the prototype testing phase, all DCs should first
participate in the developmental testing phase in order to determine

5
Subject to the DCs completing prototype testing and being available to assist the testing of DCs which have not
participated in the prototype testing phase.

I:\CIRC\MSC\01\1294-Rev-2.doc
MSC.1/Circ.1294/Rev.2
Annex, page 5

whether they should be accepted to participate in the integration testing


phase which would in turn determine whether they should be accepted to
become part of the production environment.

DCs which satisfactorily complete all communications and functional tests


during the developmental testing phase may be required to participate in
the testing environment to enable the testing of other DCs during the
developmental testing phase.

On the basis of the available information the establishment of DCs during


the initial setting up of the LRIT system is expected to continue
after 31 December 2008. As a result the Committee, at its eighty-fifth
session, will determine the date by which all DCs to be established during
the initial setting of the LRIT system should satisfactorily complete all
required tests and thus determine the end date of the developmental
testing phase;

.3 Integration testing phase Date of completion of the prototype testing


phase to the date to be decided by the Committee

The purpose of this phase is to enable DCs which have satisfactorily


completed the developmental testing phase to become part of the
production environment during the initial setting up of the LRIT system.

As a result, DCs that have satisfactorily completed developmental testing


should then participate in the integration testing phase in order to
determine whether they should be accepted to become part of the
production environment.

The DCs that participated in the prototype testing and have satisfactorily
completed all functional and communications tests during the prototype
testing phase would form the production environment and are not required
to participate in and satisfactorily complete the integration testing phase.

DCs which satisfactorily complete all communications and functional tests


during the integration testing phase may be required to participate in the
testing environment to enable the testing of other DCs during the
developmental or integration testing phases.

On the basis of the available information, the establishment of DCs during


the initial setting up of the LRIT system is expected to continue
after 31 December 2008. As a result the Committee, at its eighty-fifth
session, will determine the date by which all DCs to be established during
the initial setting of the LRIT system should satisfactorily complete all
required tests and thus determine the end date of the integration testing
phase; and

.4 Modification testing phase 31 December 2008 through life of system

The purpose of this phase is to enable the testing of modifications to the


production environment on or after 31 December 2008 as a result of
amendments to provisions of regulation V/19-1, the Performance
standards, or the technical specifications of the LRIT system. The specific
tests to be conducted in each case and which LRIT system components

I:\CIRC\MSC\01\1294-Rev-2.doc
MSC.1/Circ.1294/Rev.2
Annex, page 6

should undergo such tests would be determined in line with the


requirements of the amendments to be adopted.

The modification testing phase includes a testing environment and the


production environment.

2.1.3 Environments used for testing

2.1.3.1 There are three types of environments used for testing as follows:

.1 Prototype environment the prototype environment is the LRIT system


used during the prototype phase. This environment is established by the
prototype IDE, the prototype DDP and DDP server and a minimum of two
prototype DCs;

.2 Testing environment the testing environment is the LRIT system used


during the developmental testing and modification testing phases. This
environment is established by the test IDE, test DDP and DDP server and a
minimum of two test DCs which has satisfactorily completed all functional
and communications tests during either the prototype or developmental
testing phases. A DC wishing to become part of the production
environment (other than a prototype DC which has satisfactorily completed
all communications and functional tests) should first complete
developmental testing within the testing environment; and

.3 Production environment the production environment is the LRIT system


used for operation of the LRIT system, including during the modification
testing phase. This environment is initially established by the prototype
IDE, prototype DDP and DDP server and prototype DCs that have
satisfactorily completed all communications and functional tests. This
environment is also the environment within which DCs (other than the
prototype ones referred to above) that have undergone and satisfactorily
completed the developmental testing phase, once accepted, would
undergo the integration testing phase and once accepted, conduct final
LRIT system operations.

2.1.3.2 The individual tests to be undertaken in each of the testing environments by each of
the components of the LRIT system are identified under the column headed environment in the
tests descriptions in the appendices to the annex.

2.1.4 Test types

2.1.4.1 There are two types of tests as follows:

.1 Communications test this is a suite of tests (identified with the letter C


under the column headed test type in the tests descriptions in the
appendices to the annex) that each of the components under test should
undergo and satisfactorily complete in order to demonstrate that the
component has correctly implemented the Technical specifications for
communications within the LRIT system and the various related
requirements of the Performance standards. Functionality of the various
components would not be tested during this type of test, only their
compliance with the aforesaid requirements would be tested; and

I:\CIRC\MSC\01\1294-Rev-2.doc
MSC.1/Circ.1294/Rev.2
Annex, page 7

.2 Functional test this is a suite of tests (identified with the letter F under
the column headed test type in the tests descriptions in the appendices to
the annex) that each of the components of the LRIT system under test
should undergo and satisfactorily complete in order to demonstrate that it
meets the requirements of regulation V/19-1 and performs the relevant
functionality requirements of the Performance standards, excluding those
covered by communications tests, to the extent the said requirements can
be demonstrated through testing.

Notwithstanding the aforesaid, the IDE and the DDP and DDP server
during this test should, in addition, also demonstrate that they perform all
the functionality requirements of the Technical specifications for the
International LRIT Data Exchange and Technical specifications for the LRIT
Data Distribution Plan respectively, to the extent the said requirements can
be demonstrated through testing.

2.1.5 Tests and test certification

2.1.5.1 There are two groups of tests as follows:

.1 Pre-tests Tests conducted by components of the LRIT system before


entering into the prototype, testing, or production environments. These
tests (identified under the column headed required before entering in the
tests cases in the appendices to the annex) are conducted by each of the
components of the LRIT system to ensure a smooth transition into the
related environment; and

.2 Environment tests These tests (identified under the column headed


required during in the tests descriptions in the appendices to the annex) are
conducted after an LRIT component has entered the prototype, testing, or
production environment.

2.1.5.2 There are two types of test certifications as follows:

.1 Internal test certification These are either pre-tests or environment


tests (identified as internal under the column headed certification in the
tests descriptions in the appendices to the annex) that are self-certified as
pass/fail by the LRIT component undergoing the test and in the case of
prototype testing by one or more components of the LRIT system forming
the prototype environment; and

.2 External test certification These are either pre-tests or environment


tests (identified as external under the column headed certification in the
tests descriptions in the appendices to the annex) that are certified as
pass/fail by the LRIT component undergoing testing and one or more
components of the LRIT system forming the prototype, testing, or
production environment.

3 Process and procedures

3.1 General

3.1.1 Overview

3.1.1.1 Before undertaking any tests during the various testing phases, those concerned
with the components of the LRIT system to be tested and those concerned with the components
of the LRIT system participating in the testing should first meet the technical and administrative
requirements of the arrangements specified below.

3.1.1.2 Each phase of testing also requires the accurate documentation of the results of the
communications and functional tests which should be prepared by those concerned with the
components of the LRIT system to be tested and those concerned with the components of the
LRIT system participating in the testing in accordance with the arrangements specified below.

3.2 Prototype testing phase arrangements and procedures

3.2.1 Overview

3.2.1.1 The prototype testing environment should consist of the prototype IDE, the prototype
DDP and DDP server and a number of prototype DCs (at least two) for which the Contracting
Governments have notified, pursuant to the provisions of the Performance standards, the
Organization as to their establishment and existence indicating their wish and readiness to
participate in the prototype testing phase. Only DCs established by Contracting Governments
that have provided all the required information to the DDP should be allowed to participate in the
prototype testing phase.

3.2.1.2 The prototype testing phase is critical for the successful implementation of the
LRIT system. In order to ensure the timely establishment of the LRIT system it is necessary to
provide, as soon as possible, inter alia:

.1 certainty in relation to the adequacy and completeness of the Technical


specifications for communications within the LRIT system; and

.2 a testing environment to enable those engaged in the establishment of DCs


to test their functionality in particular the satisfactory operation of the
geo-spatial elements.

3.2.1.3 At the time of adoption of this version of the present protocols it was recognized that
a number of DCs participating in the prototype testing phase might not be able to engage or
conduct a number of functional tests for example due to their geo-spatial elements still being
under construction.

3.2.1.4 As a result, each DC participating in the prototype testing phase should undertake
and satisfactorily complete first all communications tests. The scheduling of the various
functional tests should be determined through a mutual agreement with the components of the
LRIT system which would be participating in the relevant tests.

3.2.1.5 In case a DC participating in the prototype testing phase is unable to satisfactorily


complete all functional tests by the date which the Committee will determine as the end date of
the prototype testing phase, that DC should be treated as a DC which has not undergone any
testing and should commence testing anew through the developmental and integration testing
phase route.

MSC.1/Circ.1294/Rev.2
Annex, page 9

3.2.2 Pre-prototype testing arrangements (At time of the adoption of this version of the
present protocols a number of aspects set out in paragraph 3.2.2.1 have been overtaken by
events. However, in the context of providing a record of the actions taken during the prototype
testing phase these have been retained in the form they were adopted by the Ad Hoc LRIT
Group at its fifth session.)

3.2.2.1 The pre-prototype testing process is as follows:

.1 DCs participating in the prototype testing phase are those which have
notified6 by 11 July 2008 the Organization to this end indicating that they
are ready for testing and are prepared to connect to the prototype
environment;

.2 DCs participating in the prototype testing phase should, if they have


not already done so, communicate to the Organization, no later
than 15 September 2008, the name and contact details (office and postal
address, office and mobile telephone number, facsimile number and e-mail
address) of an official or officer charged with coordinating all matters
relating to the tests to be conducted;

.3 The Contracting Government(s) establishing the prototype DCs should, if


they have not already done so, provide, no later than 15 September 2008,
all the required information to the DDP and the Secretariat should advise to
this end those forming the prototype environment that the required
information have been received and thus confirm that the prototype testing
should continue;

.4 All prototype components should, if they have not already done so, request,
no later than 1 September 2008, from the United States, acting in the
capacity of the operator of the IDE, the issue of a PKI certificate which they
should install and use during testing taking into account any related
instructions and guidance provided by the United States and subject to any
conditions attached thereto;

.5 Each of the prototype components should undertake and complete, after


implementing the revised XML schemas set out in annex 5 to document
MSC 85/6/1/Add.1, the Pre-tests specified in the related appendices of the
annex for the prototype environment and forward its respective completed
documentation to the Organization if they have not already done so not
later than 15 September 2008 or at least five working days prior to the date
they will agree to commence prototype testing, whichever of the two dates
is later;

.6 The Secretariat should provide those forming the prototype environment


with copies of the Pre-tests documentation as soon as it receives it;

.7 Those forming the prototype environment should, no later than three


working days after receiving the Pre-tests documentation, advise the
Organization whether they are comfortable with the results of the Pre-tests
and confirm that they are ready to proceed with the prototype testing;

6
As of 11 July 2008, the following Contracting Governments establishing National LRIT Data Centres have
notified the Organization of their wish to participate in the prototype testing phase: the Bahamas, Brazil,
Canada, Liberia, the Marshall Islands, the Republic of Korea and the United States.

I:\CIRC\MSC\01\1294-Rev-2.doc
MSC.1/Circ.1294/Rev.2
Annex, page 10

.8 The United States, acting in its capacity as the operator of the IDE, and in
consultation with the DDP server and the DCs forming the prototype
environment, should determine and advise the date and times on which
each DC would commence prototype testing and advise those concerned
of the date by which the prototype tests should be preferably completed;
and

.9 The prototype DDP server and the prototype DCs should request the
connection to the IDE and the DDP server (in the case of DCs) and
coordinate a testing schedule with the components forming the prototype
environment. The IDE and DDP server should have a leading and
coordinating role in scheduling the tests to be conducted and the DC
undergoing prototype testing should conduct the tests they identify in the
order they determine these.

3.2.3 Prototype testing process (At time of the adoption of this version of the present
protocols a number of aspects set out in paragraph 3.2.3.1 have been overtaken by events.
However, in the context of providing a record of the actions taken during the prototype testing
phase these have been retained in the form they were adopted by the Ad Hoc LRIT Group at its
fifth session.)

3.2.3.1 The prototype testing process is subject to the implementation of the revised
XML schemas set out in annex 5 to document MSC 85/6/1/Add.1 and is as follows:

.1 The prototype components should satisfactorily complete all


communications and functional tests subject to the additional provisions
specified in the procedures and arrangements set out in annex 3 to
document MSC 85/6/1/Add.1;

.2 All components participating in the testing should document the results of


the testing at their end, so as to be able to examine the results of the tests
as documented by the components undergoing or involved in the testing;

.3 All components participating in the testing should forward the complete


testing documentation after the end of the communications and functional
tests, as the case may be, to the Organization no later than two working
days after the end of the testing together with the associated summary
report;

.4 The Secretariat should provide those forming the prototype environment


with copies of the testing documentation and of the summary reports as
soon as it receives it;

.5 All components participating in the testing should, no later than two working
days after receiving the testing documentation and the summary report,
advise the Organization whether they are satisfied with the results of
testing as documented by the other components which have undergone or
participated in the testing and confirm that they certify these as true and
correct by completing the relevant section of the related summary report
and returning it to the Organization; and

.6 The Secretariat should prepare at the end of the prototype testing phase a
draft report for the consideration by MSC 85 and should forward it to all the
components that participated in the prototype testing phase for their

I:\CIRC\MSC\01\1294-Rev-2.doc
MSC.1/Circ.1294/Rev.2
Annex, page 11

perusal and comments. Any comments should be forwarded to the


Secretariat no later than two working days after receiving the draft report.
In the absence of any response, the Secretariat should assume that the
component(s) which did not respond have no comments and are satisfied
with the draft report being finalized and submitted for consideration by
MSC 85. In case of comments or proposed amendments, the Secretariat
should act accordingly with a view to reaching consensus amongst all
parties and ensuring that the report is submitted for consideration by
MSC 85 in a timely manner.

3.2.3.2 The prototype IDE and DDP server should endeavour to complete all
communications and functional tests in which they are involved before commencing any tests
which involve a DC.

3.2.4 Post-prototype testing process (At time of the adoption of this version of the
present protocols a number of aspects set out in paragraph 3.2.4.1 have been overtaken by
events. However, in the context of providing a record of the actions taken during the prototype
testing phase these have been retained in the form they were adopted by the Ad Hoc LRIT
Group at its fifth session.)

3.2.4.1 The post-prototype testing arrangements to be observed are as follows:

.1 The components participating in the prototype testing phase should identify


and submit for consideration by the Ad Hoc LRIT Working Group, at its
sixth session, any final amendments to the technical specifications for the
LRIT system including the necessary modifications to the present protocols
and the XML schemas;

.2 The prototype components (i.e. IDE, DDP server and voluntary DCs7)
should establish the testing environment not later than 1 October 2008 and
should advise to this end the Organization as soon as the testing
environment is ready to engage in the developmental testing phase; and

.3 The prototype components (i.e. IDE, DDP server and voluntary DCs)
should establish a production environment no later than 1 October 2008
and should advise the Organization to this end as soon as the testing
environment is ready to engage in the integration testing phase.

3.2.5 Continuation and completion of the prototype testing process (This part has
been adopted in order to provide the framework for the continuation and completion of the
prototype testing phase as the result of adoption by the Ad Hoc LRIT Group, at its sixth session,
of amendments to the technical specifications for the LRIT system, the XML schemas and the
test procedures and test cases.)

3.2.5.1 The IDE, DDP server and all DCs participating in the prototype testing should before
continuing any further testing:

.1 implement the revised XML schemas set out in annex 5 to document


MSC 85/6/1/Add.4;

7
Refer to the procedures and arrangements set out in annex 3 to document MSC 85/6/1/Add.3.

I:\CIRC\MSC\01\1294-Rev-2.doc
MSC.1/Circ.1294/Rev.2
Annex, page 12

.2 implement any required changes to their systems as results of the


amendments to the technical specifications for the LRIT system adopted by
the Ad Hoc LRIT Group, at its sixth session, as set out in annex 5 to
document MSC 85/6/1/Add.4; and

.3 confirm to the other components of the LRIT system participating in the


prototype testing phase that they have taken all required actions in line with
subparagraphs .1 and .2 above, satisfactorily completed all necessary
self-testing and are ready to continue the testing process.

3.2.5.2 The IDE, DDP server and all DCs participating in the prototype testing should:

.1 undertake and satisfactorily complete all test procedures and test cases
specified in the relevant appendices of the annex which have not yet
conducted. This should include all test procedures and test cases for
which they have not reported the test results to the Organization and all
new test procedures and test cases adopted by the Ad Hoc LRIT Group, at
its sixth session; and

.2 repeat and satisfactorily complete all test procedures and test cases which
have been amended by the Ad Hoc LRIT Group, at its sixth session.

3.2.5.3 The IDE, DDP server and all DCs participating in the prototype testing should
forward the complete testing documentation together with the associated summary report to the
Organization by 14 November 2008 at the latest.

3.2.5.3.1 The testing documentation for all DCs participating in the prototype testing is set out
in appendix 2 of the annex, for the IDE in appendix 3 of the annex and for DDP server in
appendix 4 of the annex. The summary report, for all DCs, is set out in appendix 5 of the annex.
These may be obtained from the Secretariat in word format upon request. When completing the
testing documentation the existing text should not be amended in any way and the entries
should be limited to include a Pass or a Fail under the column headed Pass/Fail. Any related
information should be provided on separate sheets by cross referencing the test procedure
and/or case to which these relate.

3.2.5.4 The Secretariat should provide those forming the prototype environment with copies
of the testing documentation and the summary reports as soon as it receives them.

3.2.5.5 All components participating in the testing should, no later than one working day after
receiving the testing documentation and the summary report, advise the Organization whether
they are satisfied with the results of testing as documented by the other components which have
undergone or participated in the testing and confirm that they certify these as true and correct by
completing the relevant section of the related summary report and returning it to the
Organization.

3.2.5.6 The Secretariat should prepare by 19 November 2008 a draft report on the results of
the prototype testing phase for the consideration by the Committee, at its eighty-fifth session,
and should forward it to all the components that participated in the prototype testing phase for
their perusal and comments. Any comments should be forwarded to the Secretariat no later
than 20 November 2008. In the absence of any response, the Secretariat should assume that
the component(s) which did not respond have no comments and are satisfied with the draft
report being finalized and submitted for consideration by the Committee. In case of comments
or proposed amendments, the Secretariat should act accordingly with a view to reaching
consensus amongst all parties and ensuring that the report is submitted for consideration by
Committee in a timely manner.

3.3 Developmental testing phase arrangements and procedures

3.3.1 Overview

3.3.1.1 Developmental testing is conducted in the testing environment which would be


established after the successful prototype testing of the prototype IDE, DDP server, and at least
two prototype DCs. Developmental testing should always include one DC that has satisfactorily
completed all communications and functional tests during either the prototype or developmental
phase. However, a DC which has satisfactorily completed developmental testing but has failed
to complete integration testing should not form part of the testing environment.

3.3.1.2 The Organization would notify all Contracting Governments when the testing
environment is ready and available for developmental testing. DCs wishing to undergo
developmental testing would be accommodated on a first come, first served basis.

3.3.2 Pre-developmental testing process

3.3.2.1 The pre-developmental testing arrangements to be observed are as follows:

.1 The Contracting Government(s) establishing the DC wishing to undergo


development testing should notify to this end the Organization;

.2 The Contracting Government(s) concerned should provide all the required


information to the DDP no later than three working days prior to the
commencement of the developmental testing and the Secretariat should
advise to this end those forming the testing environment. As far as the
polygons of the geographical areas which should be included in the DDP,
the Contracting Government should ensure that these fully comply with the
constrains provided in section 5 of the Technical specifications of the LRIT
Data Distribution Plan;

.3 The DC should, after ensuring that it has implemented the release version
of the XML schemas in force, undertake and satisfactorily complete the
Pre-tests specified in the appendix 2 of the annex which are relevant to
DCs for the testing environment and should forward the completed pre-test
documentation to the Organization, together with a confirmation that it has
implemented the aforesaid schemas;

.4 The DC should ascertain that the polygons of the geographical areas which
should be included by the Contracting Government in the DDP fully comply
with the constrains provided in section 5 of the Technical specifications of
the LRIT Data Distribution Plan; should implement and test the polygons;
and confirm that it has done so and that these have not caused any errors
or malfunctions to the Organization when submitting the Pre-test
documentation. In case of errors or malfunctions, it should advise the
Contracting Government concerned to make the required changes in the
DDP before forwarding the completed pre-test documentation to the
Organization;

.5 The Secretariat should provide those forming the testing environment with
copies of the Pre-tests documentation together with the confirmations
specified in subparagraphs .3 and .4 as soon as it receives it;

I:\CIRC\MSC\01\1294-Rev-2.doc
MSC.1/Circ.1294/Rev.2
Annex, page 14

.6 Those forming the testing environment should, no later than three working
days after receiving the Pre-tests documentation, advise the Organization
whether they are comfortable with the results of the Pre-tests and confirm
that they are ready to proceed with the developmental testing;

.7 The Secretariat in consultation with the components forming the testing


environment and the DC requesting developmental testing should
determine and advise the date and times on which the developmental
testing would commence and advise those concerned of the date by which
the tests should be preferably completed; and

.8 The Secretariat should also provide to the LRIT Coordinator salient


information concerning that DC.

3.3.3 Developmental testing process

3.3.3.1 The development testing process to be observed is as follows:

.1 DC, as soon as is advised of the date and times on which the


developmental testing would commence, should request from the
Secretariat, the issue of a PKI certificate and should confirm to those
forming the testing environment that it has installed it. The Secretariat
should not issue such a PKI certificate unless the information which should
be communicated to the Organization have been received and/or entered
in the DDP and the pre-testing documentation has been circulated to the
interested parties and they have confirmed their readiness to commence
testing;

.2 DC should request the connection to the IDE and the DDP server and
coordinate a testing schedule with the components forming the testing
environment. The IDE and DDP server should have a leading and
coordinating role in scheduling the tests to be conducted and the DC
undergoing developmental testing should conduct the tests they identify in
the order they determine these;

.3 DC should undergo and satisfactorily complete the communications and


functional tests specified in appendix 2 of the annex for the testing
environment;

.4 The DC which has undergone testing should complete and forward its
testing documentation and the related summary report to the Organization
and to the LRIT Coordinator no later than two working days after the end of
the developmental testing. The testing documentation is set out in
appendix 2 of the annex and the summary report is set out in appendix 5 of
the annex. These may be obtained from the Secretariat in word format
upon request. When completing the testing documentation the existing text
should not be amended in any way and the entries should be limited to
include a Pass or a Fail under the column headed Pass/Fail. Any related
information should be provided on separate sheets by cross referencing the
test procedure and/or case to which these relate;

.5 All other components of the LRIT system participating in the testing should
also document the results of the testing at their end, so as to be able to
examine the results of the tests as documented by the DC undergoing testing;

environment with copies of the testing documentation and of the related
summary report as soon as it receives it;

.7 Those forming the testing environment should, no later than two working
days after receiving the testing documentation and the related summary
report, advise the Organization and the LRIT Coordinator whether they are
satisfied with the results of developmental testing as documented by the
DC which has undergone developmental testing and confirm that they
certify these as true and correct by completing the relevant section of the
related summary report and returning it to the Organization and forwarding
a copy of it to the LRIT Coordinator;

.8 The LRIT Coordinator, after examining the testing documentation and the
related summary report, if it is satisfied, should authorize, as instruct by
MSC 84, the integration of the DC which has satisfactorily completed
developmental testing and should advise the Organization to this end. The
LRIT Coordinator, if unable to authorize the integration of the DC which has
undergone developmental testing into the production environment should
communicate its decision to the DC concerned and the Organization
together with the reasons thereof;

.9 The Secretariat should communicate the decisions of the LRIT Coordinator


to those who have formed the testing environment; and

.10 If the LRIT Coordinator has authorized the integration of the DC into the
production environment, the Secretariat should inform accordingly those
forming the production environment.

3.4 Integration testing phase arrangements and procedures

3.4.1 Overview

3.4.1.1 Integration testing is conducted in the production environment which would be


established after the successful prototype testing of the prototype IDE, DDP server, and at least
two prototype DCs. Integration testing should always include two DCs that are forming part of
the production environment.

3.4.1.2 The Organization should notify all Contracting Governments when the production
environment is ready and available for integration testing. DCs wishing to undergo integration
testing should be accommodated on a first come, first served basis.

3.4.2 Integration testing process

3.4.2.1 The integration testing process to be observed is as follows:

.1 DC should request the connection to the IDE and the DDP server and
coordinate a testing schedule with the components forming part of the
production environment which would participate in the integration testing.
The IDE and DDP server should have a leading and coordinating role in
scheduling the tests to be conducted and the DC undergoing integration
testing should conduct the tests they identify in the order they determine
these;

I:\CIRC\MSC\01\1294-Rev-2.doc
MSC.1/Circ.1294/Rev.2
Annex, page 16

.2 DC should undergo and satisfactorily complete the communications and


functional tests specified in appendix 2 of the annex for integration into the
production environment;

.3 The DC which has undergone testing should complete and forward its
integration testing documentation and the related summary report to the
Organization and the LRIT Coordinator no later than two working days after
the end of the integration testing. The testing documentation is set out in
appendix 2 of the annex and the summary report is set out in appendix 5 of
the annex. These may be obtained from the Secretariat in word format
upon request. When completing the testing documentation, the existing
text should not be amended in any way and the entries should be limited to
include a Pass or a Fail under the column headed Pass/Fail. Any related
information should be provided on separate sheets by cross referencing the
test procedure and/or case to which these relate;

.4 All other components participating in the integration testing should also


document the results of the testing at their end, so as to be able to examine
the results of the tests as documented by the DC undergoing testing;

.5 The Secretariat should provide to those participating in the integration


testing with copies of the integration testing documentation and the related
summary report as soon as it receives it;

.6 Those participating in the integration testing should, no later than two


working days after receiving the integration documentation and the related
summary report, advise the Organization and the LRIT Coordinator whether
they are satisfied with the results of integration testing as documented by
the DC which has undergone integration testing and confirm that they
certify these as true and correct by completing the relevant section of the
related summary report and returning it to the Organization and forwarding
a copy of it to the LRIT Coordinator; and

.7 If the DC being tested fails the integration testing, the Secretariat should,
as soon as the Organization has been notified to this end, inform
accordingly those operating in the production environment and those who
participated in the developmental testing of the DC in question.

3.4.2.2 In case a DC undergoing testing during the integration testing phase fails to
satisfactorily complete all required tests, that DC should be treated as a DC which has not
undergone any testing and should commence testing anew through the developmental and
integration testing phase route.

3.5 Modification testing phase

3.5.1 Overview

3.5.1.1 Modification testing is conducted in the testing environment and, if necessary, in the
production environment. Modification testing should be conducted whenever new test
procedures and test cases are required to be conducted as a result of amendments to the
provisions of regulation V/19-1, the Revised performance standards or the Technical
specifications for the LRIT system, or any related decision of the Maritime Safety Committee.

I:\CIRC\MSC\01\1294-Rev-2.doc
MSC.1/Circ.1294/Rev.2
Annex, page 17

3.5.1.2 The detailed modification test procedures and test cases, as well as any decisions or
additional guidance, will be prepared and approved by either the Committee or the LRIT
operational governance body, as defined within the Continuity of Service Plan for the LRIT
System, on a case by case basis taking into consideration the impact and urgency of the
modification.

3.5.2 Pre-modification testing process

3.5.2.1 The Secretariat should notify all LRIT system components (IDE, DDP server and
DCs) operating in the production environment of the LRIT system and the LRIT Coordinator,
about any decision (schedule, deadlines, etc)relating to the implementation of amendments to
the provisions of regulation V/19-1, the Revised performance standards or the Technical
specifications for the LRIT system, or any decision of the Maritime Safety Committee, which may
require additional testing to be conducted in the testing and the production environments of the
LRIT system.

3.5.2.1.1 The Secretariat should provide those LRIT system components required to undergo
modification testing with a bespoken version of the Summary report and the Report of test
results, including the required test procedures and test cases, as well as any particular
instructions to be observed.

3.5.2.2 In case a new version of the XML schemas needs to be implemented, the
corresponding release version should be available for download in the testing environment of the
DDP.

3.5.3 Modification testing process

3.5.3.1 The LRIT system component concerned should undergo and satisfactorily complete
the communications and functional tests specified in the Secretariat's notification for the testing
environment.

3.5.3.2 As soon as the testing is completed, the LRIT system component that has
undergone testing in the testing environment should complete the Summary report and the
Report of test results and forward these to the Organization.

3.5.3.2.1 When completing the testing documentation, the existing text should not be
amended in any way as this may invalidate the whole testing process.

3.5.3.2.2 The entries in the Report of test result should be limited to either include a Pass or a
Fail under the column headed Pass/Fail.

3.5.3.2.3 The LRIT system component should only complete the relevant part of the Summary
report which is required to be completed by the LRIT system component undergoing testing.
Other relevant parts of the Summary report which may require external certification, if any, will
be forwarded by the Secretariat to those LRIT system components, which have assisted the
testing, for its completion.

3.5.3.3 The Secretariat should provide those system components which have assisted the
testing with copies of the Report of test results and of the related Summary report as soon as it
receives them.

3.5.3.4 Those assisting the testing should, no later than two working days after receiving the
testing documentation, advise the Organization whether they are satisfied with the results of the
testing as documented by the LRIT system component which has undergone testing and confirm

I:\CIRC\MSC\01\1294-Rev-2.doc
MSC.1/Circ.1294/Rev.2
Annex, page 18

that they certify these as true and correct by completing the relevant parts of the related
Summary report and returning it to the Organization.

3.5.3.5 Having received the relevant parts of the Summary report from those which were
required to externally certify the test cases, if any, the Secretariat will forward the complete
Summary report and Report of test results to the LRIT Coordinator for information.

3.5.3.6 In case an LRIT system component undergoing testing in the testing environment
fails to satisfactorily complete all required tests, that system component should be treated as a
system component which has not undergone any testing and should commence testing anew
through the modification testing phase route.

3.5.4 Implementation in the Production environment

3.5.4.1 Depending on the scope of the modification to the LRIT system, the modification can
either be made by the required system component(s) all at the same time or in stages. The
preferred implementation approach will be based on the specifics of the modification concerned.
Either the Committee or the LRIT Operational Governance body, defined within the Continuity of
Service Plan for the LRIT system, will decide the preferred, or required, implementation approach.

3.5.4.1.1 For modifications that must be implemented at the same time, it is anticipated that all
of the LRIT system components will have successfully completed their testing well before the
planed cut over date. If problems occur during the cut over, operational decisions will be made
as defined within the Continuity of Service Plan for the LRIT system to ensure the continued
operation of the system.

3.5.4.1.1.1 If all system components have not successfully completed testing prior to the
planned cut over, the LRIT Operational Governance body will decide whether or not to continue
the cut over. The decision will be based on the desire to maintain the LRIT system in operation
with the maximum number of LRIT system components on line and capable of exchanging LRIT
information.

3.5.4.1.2 For modifications that can be implemented in stages, the cut over will occur within
the time period defined by the guidance prepared for the modification. As each system
component completes the modification testing it will be re-integrated into the production system
in a coordinated manner.

3.5.4.1.2.1 LRIT system components, which have satisfactorily completed all required tests in
the testing environment should implement the modification in the production environment within
the time period defined by the guidance prepared for the modification. The time period could be
extended by the Secretariat depending on the magnitude of the test required to be conducted.

3.5.4.2 In case there were no additional test procedures and test cases required to be
conducted and having implementing the necessary system modifications in the production
environment, the LRIT system component concerned should notify the Organization and the
LRIT Coordinator once the required system modifications were satisfactory implemented.
Having received this notification, the modification testing phase would be considered as
complete for that system component.

3.5.4.3 In case there are test procedures and test cases required to be conducted in the
production environment, the Secretariat should provide those required to undergo testing with a
bespoke version of the Summary report and Report of test results, including the required test
procedures and test cases, as well as any particular instructions to be observed. In this case,
the following procedures should be observed:

I:\CIRC\MSC\01\1294-Rev-2.doc
MSC.1/Circ.1294/Rev.2
Annex, page 19

.1 As soon as the testing is completed, the LRIT system component which


has undergone testing in the production environment should complete and
forward its Summary report and Report of test results to the Organization.

.1 When completing the testing documentation, the existing text


should not be amended in any way as this may invalidate the
whole testing process.

.2 The entries in the Report of test results should be limited either to


include a Pass or a Fail under the column headed Pass/Fail.

.3 LRIT system components should only complete the relevant part


of the Summary report which is required to be completed by the
DC undergoing testing. Other relevant parts of the Summary
report which may require external certification, if any, will be
forwarded by the Secretariat to those system components, which
have assisted the testing, for its completion.

.2 The Secretariat should provide those participating in the testing process


with copies of the Report of test results and of the related Summary report
as soon as it receives them.

.3 Those assisting the testing should, no later than two working days after
receiving the testing documentation, advise the Organization whether they
are satisfied with the results of the testing as documented by the LRIT
system component which has undergone testing in the production
environment and confirm that they certify these as true and correct by
completing the relevant parts of the related Summary report and returning it
to the Organization.

.4 Having received the relevant parts of the Summary report from those which
were required to externally certify the test cases, if any, the Secretariat will
forward the complete Summary report and Report of test results to the LRIT
Coordinator.

.5 If the LRIT system component fails to satisfactorily complete all required


tests, that system component should be treated as a system component
which has not undergone any testing and should commence testing anew
through the modification testing phase route. In this case, the Secretariat
should, as soon as the Organization has been notified, inform accordingly
those operating in the production environment and those who participated
in the modification testing of the system component in question.

LRIT Data Distribution Plan server test procedure and cases

The Pass/Fail column of a particular test case indicates the results of the specific test. A pass entry should be made when the test has been
satisfactorily conducted and the results are satisfactory. A fail entry should be made when either the test cannot be conducted or the envisaged test
cannot be satisfactorily carried out or the results of the test are not satisfactory.
The Pass/Fail column of a particular test procedure summarizes the results of the associated test cases. A pass entry should be made when all
associated test cases have been satisfactorily conducted and their results are satisfactory. A fail entry should be made when the test of anyone of the
associated test cases cannot be conducted or the envisaged test cannot be satisfactorily carried out or the results of the test are not satisfactory.
