Boat Safety Scheme

BSS Examination & Certification
Just like a car, on most of the UK's inland waterways, a boat needs to be licensed, insured and have the boat-equivalent of a MOT - valid BSS certification - before it can cruise, or in some circumstances moor.

Gas Safe

Our Gas Safe Registration Number: 630009
For peace of mind, only use a Gas Safe Registered Engineer on Gas appliances.

Safety Tips & Advice

Carbon Monoxide

The BSS Essential Guide to Carbon Monoxide (CO) Alarm Requirements (COAR) include the important details and background information on the mandatory requirement for CO alarms

Solid Fuel Stoves

Solid fuel stoves provide a dry and economical form of heat making thousands of boats on UK inland waterways very cosy.

Fire Safety

Whilst fire is unlikely on a boat that is well maintained to minimum safety standards, it is a grave concern to boaters who can be caught unawares or in a situation where escape is difficult.
