Boat Safety Inspections

Authorised Examiner

Examinations are carried out over the Norfolk and Suffolk broads, We offer competitive prices and remedial repairs can becarried out and / or parts provided if required.

The purpose of the BSS is to help minimise the risks to all visitors to the waterways and the waterways’ workforce, and to help protect adjacent property,

The remit of the BSS is only related to the condition, equipment and use of boats.

Navigation Authorities use to the BSS to help develop a set of national minimum legal safety requirements and to run an examination service to verify that each boat registered with the navigation authority meets the requirements.

This is the Boat Safety Scheme Examination and if the boat meets the requirements, the BSS Examiner will create a Boat Safety Scheme Certification in the database.

The certificate will be valid for four years.  

The examiner will send their customer a full BSS Certification report either on a paper print out, or as a electronic file, or both if the owner wishes.
