BSS - Boat Safety Scheme

If you're thinking of using your boat on the inland waterways you must have a valid Boat Safety Scheme Certificate. 

see here for details of the scheme and what you will need to do to comply https://www.boatsafetyscheme.org/boat-examination/arranging-the-examination/preparing-for-examination/ 

The Cost of a local  BSS inspection is £190.00 including the BSS Certificate.  A discount of £40 is given if the boat fails and no certificate is awarded. A fee of £75 is charged if a re-inspection is necessary provided it is within one month of the original.  Mileage and travel time may be charged for travel beyond a 20 mile radius.  Please ask for a quote.
