Consultation description

This consultation seeks to gather the views of people and organisations from the maritime sector on our proposal to raise our range of fees.

The Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) is required to comply with the guidance set out in HM Treasury’s publication Managing Public Money. The full cost recovery norm for fees ensures Government neither profits at the expense of consumers nor makes a loss for taxpayers to subsidise. Since September 2006, the MCA has not changed its fee level and has consequently absorbed increases in ship registrations, ship surveys and merchant navy training costs. The recently published Maritime Growth Study identified full cost recovery as critical to improving the service provided by the MCA.
