The MCA business plan sets out the agency’s plans for 2016 to 2017.
The business plan has three sections:
- Who we are and what we do
- Plans for 2016 and 2017
- Supporting delivery of the plan
Across small and large teams of expert staff, we provide services from coordinating maritime emergency rescues to running and marketing the economically vital UK Ship Register. We provide Survey and Inspection capabilities to check the safety of ships operating in British waters and UK-registered ships abroad, and administer the law in relation to Wreck and Salvage. We support a team of 3,500 volunteer Coastguard Rescue Officers operating in their local communities, and stand ready to respond to pollution incidents at sea. We develop and implement maritime safety standards for ships, and work with others to promote campaigns to reduce accident rates in and around water.
