The SMCP (commonly referred to as the standard phrases) is the revised, updated and enhanced version of the Standard Marine Navigational Vocabulary (SMNV), and was developed after a fire devastated the Scandinavian Star ferry with the loss of 158 human lives.
From the time the SMNV was in force until very recently, different authors have complained about the little use of these phrases in real-life situations and claim further investigation into this particular issue (De la Campa, 2007; De la Campa et al., 2007; Diaz Perez, 2002 & 2005; Johnson, 1995 & 1999; Olaru, 1996; Pritchard, 2000, 2003a & 2003b; Pritchard & Kalogjera, 2000; Squire, 2006; Trenkner, 2005) at the same time they urge shipping companies and ship owners, rather than training institutions, to bind their crew to such standardized language and procedures.
For a detailed analysis of the SMNV see Bocanegra Valle (1999) and Diaz Perez (2005).
