MCA Code Compliance Surveys

Angling, Diveboat, Workboat and Fishing vessel surveys 

We offer a fast, professional and comprehensive service to workboat operators and owners whether you require a survey for insurance, condition, code compliance, IMCA safety audit or fishing vessel registration, which can be carried out through SEAFISH.   We have been involved in the MCA certification of over 100 vessels around the country.  Types of vessels include windfarm workboats, dive boats, angling boats, RIBs and survey vessels.

We are authorised by the RYA, MECAL, SCMS and SEAFISH Certifying Authorities to examine vessels under the MCA Small Commercial Vessel Code of Practice for vessels under 24m.

Please contact us to discuss your certification requirements.  If you are new to the process we will forward copies of all the paperwork involved for you to view in advance, and make a pre-certification visit, during which we will assess the vessel's suitability and list exactly what equipment and modifications are required to gain compliance with the code.  This will ensure success on 'the day' and remove uncertainty and anxiety from the process.  

Heel tests and inclining experiments can be carried out and if you require a stability booklet we can arrange this through our network of qualified Naval Architects.

Our main area of operation is the East Coast between the Scottish Borders and Humberside and also the Cumbrian coast however we travel to many other areas of the UK and Europe.  Please feel free to contact us to discuss your survey requirements.
