Consultation description

MSN 1871 allows vessels of less than 15m built before 16 July 2007 to be considered by the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) for Registration as fishing vessels. As part of the process MCA requires evidence that such vessels are safe and suitable for commercial fishing.

Since 2007, this evidence has been provided to the MCA by Seafish, whose surveyors (at the vessel owner’s expense) survey such vessels against Seafish Construction Standards and submit their report to the MCA for consideration.

Seafish has given MCA notice that they will cease undertaking surveys after 30 November 2017. MCA will now oversee these surveys, conducted by Authorised Surveyors on behalf of the MCA.
