Account Authority Identification Code
The Account Authority Identification Code (AAIC) is a code that identifies an internationally recognized accounting authority for radiomaritime communications.
If a ship has a radiomaritime station, it must be registered to an Accounting Authority, that guarantees the traceability of radio calls made by the ship (AAIC use in ITU-R regulations).
The AAIC, together with the name of the ship, can be used instead of ship's Call Sign, if the ship hasn't got any.
It can be used for radiocommunications by means of the following types of equipment: Satellite (e.g. Inmarsat), VHF band, MF/HF band equipment, short-range UHF, radiobeacons. The emitter of radiomaritime licenses often provides Account Authority registration (Telemar Inmarsat Service).
