SMCP were adopted in November 2001 as resolution A.918(22) IMO Standard Marine Communication Phrases. It was recommended a wide circulation of the IMO SMCP to all prospective users and all maritime education authorities. The IMO SMCP builds on a basic knowledge of English and has been drafted in a simplified version of maritime English. It includes phrases for use in routine situations such as berthing as well as standard phrases and responses for use in emergency situations. Under the international convention on the STCW 78/95, the ability to understand and use the SMCP is required for the certification of officers in charge of a navigational watch on ships of 500 gross tonnage or above.

This is your Captain speaking. We have a minor flooding in hold #2. There is no immediate danger to crew, passengers or vessel – and there is no reason to be alarmed. However, for safety reasons I request all officers report to the bridge; watchkeepers remain at stations until further notice. Damage control teams continue to fight the flooding. We have radio contact with two vessels in vicinity. As soon as I have further information I will make another announcement – there is no danger at this time. 13

20 BRIEFING CREW AND PASSENGERS announcement on the PA system - example
This is your Captain speaking. I have another announcement: The flooding is not under control yet. Leave the engine room, superstructure, your stations and your cabins immediately – close all openings. Take lifejackets with you. Take your emergency equipment with you according to the muster list. All crew members to assembly station on the afterdeck on the port side. The route to the assembly station on the foredeck is not clear, therefore the escape route will be via superstructure. I repeat, assemble on the afterdeck on port side. 14
