Indicative application document
To apply to have your container weight method approved by the MCA please familiarise yourself with the attached indicative application checklist and notes.
The application checklist is indicative due to the wide range of organisations to which the requirements apply. Organisations should not feel restricted by this and are permitted to make an application in the way most suitable to them. Contact the MCA on firstname.lastname@example.org
Applications should be made via email. Please send your application, including all supporting documentation to email@example.com. If there are reasons the application must be sent clerically then postal applications should be addressed to Container Weight, Maritime and Coastguard Agency, Bay 2/29, Spring Place, 105 Commercial Road, Southampton SO15 1EG.
The fee for processing of the application is £94.00. Once the application has been received the MCA will reply with an application number and instructions on how to pay the application fee. If you are emailing a payment form please ensure it is separate from all other documents. This is to help us maintain the security of financial details. When making payment you must quote your application number. Applicants have the option of paying by credit card or bank transfer. A credit card form, and the bank details to which payment should be made can be found here.
Once an application and payment have been received the MCA shall assess your application. At that stage, if more information is needed to grant approval, you will receive communication detailing what information is required.
