Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS)
Following the Titanic disaster in 1912, the maritime nations gathered together in 1914 to develop the first international shipping safety convention. The focus was to prevent shipping accidents and improve the chances of survival at sea following an accident. The resulting system today is called the Global Maritime Distress and Safety system (GMDSS).
