Survey and inspection information

COVID-19 advice for survey and inspection.


The Maritime and Coastguard Agency is working to provide options to minimise disruption to survey and inspection that could be caused by the ongoing COVID-19 situation.

While work will continue, the survey and inspection team will have to consider whether travel of surveyors due to carry out surveys internationally should still happen. Customers with surveys due in the forthcoming weeks should keep in touch with their Customer Service Manager. Allowances are already in place to delegate surveys to Class Societies.
