Summary

We are seeking views on the revised schedules of regulations applying to small commercial and workboat vessels which are dis-applied if vessels comply with the Codes of Practice.

Consultation description

The two existing regulations

  • Merchant shipping (vessels in commercial use for sport or pleasure)(amendment) regulations 1998
  • Merchant shipping (small workboats and pilot boats)(amendment) regulations 1998

implement four codes of practice for construction and safe operation of small commercial vessels (motor and sailing), large yachts, workboats and pilot boats. They dis-apply the requirements of a number of other regulations listed in the schedules if owners follow the relevant codes of practice.

The schedules have become out of date due to the introduction of newer legislation such as the crew accommodation standards of the Maritime Labour Convention 2006.

This is a simple updating exercise which does not make any substantive changes to the current regime.
