No Due to lack of navigable waters for “vehicles” with SOLAS and similar equipment, there is no procedure for certification of operators. We literally have 7 ships with radio equipment on them that is licensed, and they are all on North, river Sava – area of Brcko town. So, the ERC Decision is not implemented in the first, nor in the amended form in BiH – but not due to any obstacles or disagreements with any stipulation, simply a N/A case (non-applicable)

No GMDSS radio operators` training and competence assessment process is in line with requirements of the STCW Convention and corresponding IMO model courses, which covers requirements of ERC Decision (99)01, as amended. GMDSS certificates, which are issued in accordance with the STCW Convention requirements, are used world-wide and the additional reference to a regional Decision can create confusion and misinterpretation. For that reason LV GOC, ROC certificates do not contain a reference to this Decision. Additionally, EU Member States shall take into consideration the EU Directive 2005/45/EC on mutual recognition of seafarers` certificates issued by Member States

Yes The ERC/DEC(99)01 is one of the most important of CEPT decisions which has a huge impact over the lives of a numerous humans being, namely seafarers. This decision is crucial for the service on board of the maritime radio operators and also on their activity like seamen.
