Revised Workboat Code - Technical Standard Published

Tuesday 10th June 2014

After months of drafting and discussion we have virtually reached agreement with the MCA on the text of the revised Workboat code. - There are still some contentious areas which we will have chance to comment and amend before the final version is published, particularly with reference to Towing and the Carriage of Dangerous Goods. The MCA are publishing an " Industrial Working Group - Technical Standard" today to coincide with Seawork - you can download a copy here.  The revised code still has to undergo legal scrutiny and an 'Impact Assessment but the MCA state that it can be used as an alternative construction standard from today.
