Public consultation on new Code of Practice launches on 1 August and closes just before end of September and the MCA will be at The Southampton Boat Show to discuss these proposals . We suggest you need to read them as it may impact on your core business
Members of the boating community are being encouraged to ‘have their say’ on the Maritime & Coastguard Agency’s new Code of Practice for Intended Pleasure Vessels and its supporting Guidance Notices as well as some new Exemptions.
The public consultation launches on 1 August and runs for 8 weeks until 26 September. The Code of Practice for Intended Pleasure Vessels (IPV Code) and its supporting Guidance Notices – which will be introduced on 1 January 2019 – addresses temporary commercial use either for business purposes or as a race support boat.
The MCA is urging the boating community to read through the proposals on how they plan to make the water a safer place for everyone while giving the opportunity to legitimately operate commercially on a temporary basis for certain activities.
