Title: Boat safety scheme - September 1995
Author: Environment Agency
Document Type: Monograph
The main point of the Boat Safety Scheme is to help you keep your boat in a safe condition and boats subject to the Scheme will need to be independently examined at least once every 4 years by people authorised to do so. Owners of boats that successfully pass the examination will get a Boat Safety Certificate. This will allow them to apply to use waterways run by navigation authorities adopting the Scheme. Various boat safety requirements have been enforceable for many years. The Boat Safety Scheme replaces and updates these requirements and gives a single arrangement to help you keep your boat safe. An EC directive about recreational craft comes fully into force in 1998 and affects boat building.
