What is the period of validity of a Ship Radio Licence issued to a UK ship under Ofcom’s “lifetime licensing” system?

A Ship Radio Licence remains valid for as long as the licence details remain correct or until such time as the licence is either revoked by Ofcom or surrendered by the licensee. There is no end date on the licence but Ofcom will revoke the licence unless it is either amended or validated at least once every 10 years.
