Accounting Authority Identification Code (AAIC)
Accounting Authority Identification Code (AAIC) is a service gateway for global companies to communicate with vessels worldwide. Each ship station must have an internationally recognized accounting authority according to ITU radio regulations.
All traffic for maritime communications must be prefixed with the officially recognized accounting authority identification code (known as an AAIC) for the accounting authority responsible for the settlement of their radio accounts.
With one or more vessels sailing the seas with radio or Inmarsat satellite communications onboard, you may receive bills from various countries charging you for the communication costs from the vessel to the shore. The Accounting Authority administers billing and settlement of the communication charges of vessels via any Coast Radio Station and Land Earth Station all over the world.
Here at NiAT, we provide maritime satellite terminals and provisioning services for ships and land mobiles, including billing.
