The genesis of the AMVER system ultimately finds its roots in the RMS TITANIC disaster in 1912. Ships passing within sight of the ill-fated passenger liner were unaware that it had hit an iceberg and was sinking. Originally known as the Atlantic Merchant Vessel Emergency Reporting (AMVER) System, it was initiated by the Unites States Coast Guard and became operational on 18 July, 1958. AMVER began as an experiment, confined to waters of the North Atlantic Ocean, notorious for icebergs, fog and winter storms. In 1971, the system was formally expanded worldwide.
In 1971 the U.S. Coast Guard launched the Annual AMVER Awards to recognize and reward participation ships which remain “on plot” for at least 128 days in a calendar year. These awards have become instrumental in stimulating participation in, and loyalty to, the AMVER System.
