Description: The primary purpose of a voyage data recorder (VDR) or a simplified voyage data recorder (S-VDR) is to store informations, in a secure and retrievable form, concerning the position, movement, physical status, command and control of a vessel. This information is needed during any subsequent investigation to identify the causes of the incident. All cargo ships over 3000 GRT constructed after 2002 and all passenger ships are required to be fitted with a Voyage Data Recorder (VDR). All cargo ships over 3000 GRT built before 2002 must be fitted with a VDR or a Simplified VDR (S-VDR). All VDRs and S-VDRs are subject to an annual performance test, conducted by an approved servicing facility, to verify the accuracy, duration and recoverability of the recorded data.
