There's an important consultation that individual boaters need to respond to, closing date 9 September 2019. How the directive is implemented will affect all of us - from how much we pay for fuel for our boats to whether (and how) we are obliged to flush our existing fuel tanks. PLEASE, PLEASE COMPLETE THE CONSULTATION - this is a numbers game, we ALL need to respond.
The Boat Safety Scheme (BSS) has launched a public consultation proposing BSS requirements for carbon monoxide (CO) alarms on boats. The proposals promote checks to be introduced for suitable CO alarms in good condition and in suitable locations on all classes of boat with accommodation spaces. The proposed mandatory new BSS Requirements are intended to come into effect from January 2019 and be implemented as BSS Checks on 1 April 2019.
