The Long Range Certificate is an internationally valid certificate issued to radio station operators. It entitles the holder to participate in marine communications on leisure crafts using Marine VHF, Medium Frequency, High Frequency radios and Inmarsat satellite communication as agreed in Global Maritime Distress and Safety System.

The certificate is consistent with the agreement of the Article S47 of the ITU Radio Regulations.[1]

Issuing authorities[edit]

Depending on local legislation, the certificate can be issued e.g. by a maritime association such as the AMERC in the UK,[2] or a regulatory agency such as FICORA in Finland.[3]
