A minimum of three copies should be kept on board and located in: 

  1. The bridge;
  2. A forecastle space; and
  3. The ship’s office or cargo control room.

Owner or operator will also have a copy of the Procedure so that this can be passed to a towage provider should this be necessary. Please ensure that you and your crew take the time to study the ETB and its associated procedures as familiarity with these will be important in an emergency.
