Certification and documentation

 

Documents on demand

We understand how important it is for clients to have full certification for our vessels and crew, quite often in a hurry. We pride ourselves in ensuring certification is up to date and available within seconds of being requested. CRC operate an in-house Planned Maintenance System' ensuring all vessels are in a permanent state of readiness.

Maritime Coastguard Agency - Coded Vessels

All CRC vessels carry full MCA (Maritime Coastguard Agency) coding certificates and are subject to regular survey and inspection. Many of our Ribs are also endorsed to the Police Boat Code and see regular service with UK policing authorities.

We have both open Ribs and cabin Ribs fully certified to operate under Police Boat Code B - "A Code of Practice for the Construction, Machinery, Equipment and Operation of Sea-Going Police Rigid Inflatable Boats and Other Small Vessels Operating up to 60 Miles from a Safe Haven".
