Small Commercial Vessels Code for Guernsey and Sark (SCV Code)

The SCV Code has been developed to ensure the safe operation of small commercial vessels operating from harbours within Guernsey or Sark, other than a vessel operating solely within the territorial seas of Sark. It achieves this by prescribing standards of construction, manning and emergency equipment for vessels under 24 metres in length carrying 250 passengers or less. In most cases the Code refers directly to the relevant United Kingdom codes of practice. It is scheduled to come into force in May 2019.
