You may need to prove that you have served on a ship at some time during the past five years, which is fully fitted with GMDSS equipment. Evidence should be in the form of a letter from the master or ship owner confirming that the ship is GMDSS fitted and that you operated the equipment while on board and that the ship did not carry a radio operator during that time.
