A radio survey is a set of test procedures carried out by a qualified radio inspector in order to verify and confirm that the communication, navigational and safety equipment on board the vessel is fully operational.

Radio surveys should be carried out using test equipment capable of performing all the relevant measurements required by the guidelines laid down in SOLAS Chapter IV and specified in IMO Resolutions A.997 and A.948.
