The Government has been clear that we will seek to agree an implementation period beyond March 2019 of around two years.
During the implementation period people will be able to come to live, study and work in the UK as they do now. This would also be the case for UK nationals travelling or working in the EU during this period, including accredited yachting instructors.
Royal Yachting Association certificates and qualifications apply to people working and sailing on British flagged boats. Royal Yachting Association (RYA) qualifications are not covered by the Mutual Recognition of Professional Qualifications (MRPQ) Directive. Holders of these certificates should check the certification requirements of the local Port State Control Administration prior to entering their jurisdiction.
