The complexities of the MCA Code of Practice and MLC can be daunting for both new and experienced yacht owners. With an in-depth understanding of what is required for your yacht and crew to be fully compliant, we can assist every step of the way”
For yachts registered under the UK red flag states, including both commercial yachts and private yachts intending to occasionally charter, conformity with the MCA Code of Practice is mandatory. The MCA standard isn’t just relevant to red flag states, it is also useful to yachts under other flags. As a worldwide benchmark, an MCA certificate is often accepted in place of local rules and is a sensible standard for safety conscious owners of private yachts to adhere to. Coded yachts operating outside the UK and employing crew to work onboard must now also be MLC compliant. The Maritime Labour Convention (MLC) became mandatory for UK flagged commercial vessels, on international voyages from 2014 and details a strict set of rules for employing crew to ensure their welfare and safety.
