As previously mentioned, from 1 January 2013, BSS examiners will be using the revised examination checking procedures for privately-owned, privately managed boats.
You will find an outline of the changes on our site here.
However, we recommend that you become familiar with the most significant of the changes by reading the four-page summary on this link.
It briefly describes the new checks, the amended checks that have a technical aspect and the checks that have withdrawn or new allowances introduced. The document doesn’t go through the small editorial revisions which is the majority of the changes introduced in 2013.
It is hoped that by sharing this document with our members that the impact of the changes will be more generally understood and the potential for mis-information can be minimised.
