Temporary Suspension of BSS Examination Activity extended to 30 April, 2020

As the representative of RBOA on the Boat Safety Scheme Advisory Committee, I have received the following information fromĀ  the National Navigation Users’ Forum’s Andy Wilkinson, National Navigation Manager.

This is to let you know that we and the Canal & River Trust, as navigation authority owners of the Boat Safety Scheme (BSS), have taken the decision to extend the temporary suspension of BSS examination activity to 30 April, as we continue to manage our response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
