ADVERTISEMENT

Germany’s Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH) has issued safety alerts regarding recalls of the following items:



1. Ikaros hand-held rocket parachute flare manufactured by Nammo LIAB AB (trade name Hansson Pyrotech). The manufacturer reports that certain batches have been identified to have a small risk to their water-tightness under extreme conditions. The batches affected are numbers 1111011, 1111012, 1111013, 1111014, 1112001 and 1112002, delivered between November 2011 and February 2012.



2. Sanho HRU, hydrostatic release units for liferafts and epirbs manufactured by Fenerci Denizcilik Egitim Dis. Tic. Ltd. Sti. The manufacturer has recalled specific batches (serial numbers C001 to C400) because triggering in the prescribed water depth is not guaranteed in all cases. Therefore, a security risk cannot be excluded.



3. HGS40-30000 rocket parachute flare, HGY60-15000 hand flare and CCY3-2 buoyant smoke signal produced by manufacturer Ningbo Zhenhua Life-saving Equipment Co. Ltd. The manufacturer has recalled specific batches of these products because full functionality is not guaranteed in all cases. Therefore, a security risk cannot be excluded.



Owners and operators should examine all such equipment to see if it is affected by these recalls. If any products are affected, replace them and contact BSH at marketsurveillance@bsh.de or on +49 (0)40 31907110.



More details about these recalls is available on the BSH Web site, www.bsh.de/en/.
