The Survey and Inspection transformation programme is a four-year change programme currently less than halfway through implementation. The changes to the Marine Office network estate laydown remain on schedule to complete in March 2019 and the new North East Examination Centre has already opened in South Shields.

An assessment of the impact of the changes will be undertaken at an appropriate time after implementation has completed.
