Broads Authority


Recommended Posts

Surprisingly, I haven't received one yet!! The Authority do have the power to make such a request, they just prefer not to use it in favour of the dubious self declaration. About 2 years ago they sent out 100 requests to test compliance and this was due to be repeated. You could be one of the lucky 100 this time, or it could be the start of something different.

Steve Birtles has always maintained that it is for the owner to satisfy themselves that their insurance meets the requirements of the act, and not The BA. If they are asking to see a copy of your insurance, then I'm assuming they must be doing the checking properly, which is at odds to Steve's stance??

It does state that my declaration covers the following,

covers the vessel named versus persons entitled to use it.

covers a minimum £2000,000

is issued by an insurer under the Financial services act 2000, and to carry on in Great Britain.

They are collecting a sample to see if the self declaration is effective.

Not sure what happens if I don't comply within 28 days, does my boat self destructs. :RiverPolice

I thought they shouldn't ask for a copy of the actual certificate as that makes them accountable..

The normally ask for the policy number and the underwriter..Although I think on of our marinas ask and I provide then... Their problem then.

I wonder what will happen to those insured by you know who lol..
