How does LRIT work when the ship is close to another State’s coast?

If the ship is operating within 1000 nautical miles of the coast of another State, or has announced its intention to enter a port under that State’s jurisdiction, the LRIT information from the ship will be automatically distributed to the State through the International Data Exchange. In this case, the State will be able to monitor the vessel, request on-demand transmissions and change the automatic reporting interval.
