Review of Merchant Shipping Regulations

Review of Merchant Shipping Regulations
13 Mar 2020

Reinstatement of the Merchant Shipping (Bridge Visibility) (Small Passenger Ships) Regulations 2005 (SI 2005/2286).

 

By way of a Consent Order dated 18 February 2020, the Administrative Court have provided that the Merchant Shipping (Bridge Visibility) (Small Passenger Ships) Regulations 2019 (SI 2019/1025) are quashed and are of no effect. Consequently, the Merchant Shipping (Bridge Visibility) (Small Passenger Ships) Regulations 2005 (SI 2005/2286) have been reinstated and will continue to have effect. This Order is the result of a judicial review claim.

 

I have, through the Maritime and Coastguard Agency, assessed the safety implications of this decision and believe that there are no regulatory safety concerns arising from this decision.
