On May 12, 2020, the Shanghai Maritime Safety Administration launched a special inspection on the use of shipborne AIS equipment and the display of ship names. In June 2020, two security inspectors from the Pudong Maritime Safety Administration discovered that a round of B-class AIS equipment could not record the last ten power-on and turn-off records during a safety inspection of a sea-going vessel in the jurisdiction, and issued defects and imposed administrative penalties.

1. Defect description

The BIS AIS equipment has not been solidified and upgraded, and cannot record the last ten power-on/off records.

i. The AIS equipment should be able to record and store no less than 10 times of power-on and power-off times recently, and at the same time the equipment queries every 5 minutes is enough to be in working state, and records the last time in working state.
