There has been a temporary suspension of Boat Safety Scheme examinations
Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on the 23rd of March 2020 regarding the
UK’s response to the coronavirus crisis, the joint owners of the Boat Safety
Scheme (BSS) are allowing a temporary extension to safety certificates for crafts requiring an examination before 14 April 2020.
Any future changes will be reviewed in respect of the Government’s most up
to date advice and the BSS, owners will advise boat owners accordingly. In the meantime, Navigation Authorities and licensing bodies will maintain a record of BSS extensions. Boat owners are advised to check any implications for their boat’s insurance cover linked to the temporary waiver of BSS Certification with their broker or underwriter.
