Code of Practice for the Safe Operation of Recreational Craft

A new and revised Code of Practice for the Safe Operation of Recreational Craft booklet was published by the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport in November 2017.

The Code of Practice is a valuable source of information, advice and best practice operational guidance for owners, masters, operators and users of a range of pleasure and recreational craft operating in Irish coastal and inland waters.  It also includes updated information on relevant legislation that applies to recreational craft and should be of interest and benefit to our Club members.  For more detail on the content and structure of the Code of Practice, please see Marine Notice No. 9 of 2018 which is available on the Department’s website here.
A useful Checklist of Basic Safety Requirements and Advice can be found on page 5 of the Code and is also attached as an Annex to the Marine Notice.

All recreational craft users are encouraged to familiarise themselves with the Code and to heed the safety advice and recommendations including the need to take personal responsibility for their actions on the water.
