Primary battery shelf life must be at least 2 years and highly visible yellow/orange colour or marked with a surrounding yellow/orange marking strip. There is no requirement for the two-way VHF radios to be Ex rated or intrinsically safe type, though if the units are being used for shipboard operations then there must be effective measures in place to prevent them being used in the gas hazardous area.
