Combined Maritime Forces (CMF)

A 33-nation naval partnership

IRTAs / IRTBs

Industry Releasable Threat Assessments (IRTAs) are issued quarterly by CMF and EU NAVFOR. The quarterly IRTAs are supplemented by Industry Releasable Threat Bulletins (IRTBs), which are issued when necessary or appropriate. IRTBs provide rapid and responsive information to the maritime industry.

IRTAs and IRTBs are intended to inform risk management decision making for shipping operators responsible for merchant vessels that are transiting through the Red Sea, Gulf of Aden, Gulf of Oman and the Western Indian Ocean. IRTAs and IRTBs are released to a limited distribution and are available via registering at http://www.mschoa.org/ or via the relevant national authorities of CMF partner nations.
