An assessment has not been made because the Maritime and Coastguard Agency is not aware of any recent delays of six weeks in issuing a coding certificate for UK registered vessels. Most Code vessel work is undertaken by Code Vessel Certifying Authorities (CAs) who work on behalf of MCA.

The MCA can look at the specifics of the case(s) that have led to this enquiry, but would require further details, noting that should this case refer to a certificate issued by a CA, then that information will be shared with them.
