Any actions taken in the event of a death should respect the religious beliefs and customs of seafarers and their families.

-Provide advice to companies on the issues concerned, and on the requirements and customs of various faiths, to be factored into any decisions taken;
-Recommend practical steps which can be taken in the unfortunate instance of a death on board a ship; and
-Help anyone involved in decisions affecting the repatriation of a deceased seafarer including ships’ Masters, agents, funeral directors in ports, welfare agencies, government officials, shipowners, unions and seafarers’ families.
