VOLUNTARY TOWAGE ENDORSEMENT SCHEME

After several years of consultation between the interested stakeholders the MCA published this Voluntary Towage Endorsement Scheme (as MGN 468). The NWA acts as the ‘Recognised Body’ to administer this scheme in the UK. We have appointed authorised Assessors who are available to assess candidates who have applied to gain a Towage endorsement and have completed the relevant part(s) of the Towage Training Record Book, referred to above.  This will be the first time Tug Masters will have the opportunity to demonstrate their Towage ability and have it recognised through these Towage Endorsements. The first Tug Masters have already passed their Towage Endorsements - have you applied for yours? Several Harbour authorities have already expressed interest in these towage endorsements for those engaged in towing in their ports.

You will find a Towage Endorsement Application form and table of Fees here, or you can contact the Secretary, for further details.
