Code of Safety for Small Commercial Vessels – SCV Code 2017

This is the 2017 version of the Small Commercial Vessel Code that applies to vessels operating commercially, trading in the Caribbean Trading Area (which includes Antigua and Barbuda waters), which are 5 metres or more in length overall and less than 24 metres in length (L) and which, if carrying more than 12 passengers, operate within 20 miles of the nearest harbour or safe refuge, carry not more than 150 passengers and where overnight accommodation is provided, not more than 50 passengers overnight.

The Code has been updated and rearranged to take into account legislative changes that have occurred in recent years and also operational experience that has been gained with the application of the 2014 version of the code.
