The United Kingdom’s Maritime & Coastguard Agency (MCA) have today published Merchant Shipping Notice (MSN) 1851 titled ‘The Large Commercial Yacht Code (LY3)’.
MSNs convey mandatory information that must be complied with under UK legislation. MSNs relate to Statutory Instruments that have been passed into UK law and contain the technical detail of such regulations.
MSN 1851 announces the replacement of LY2 by the latest revision of the MCA publication known as LY3 for the purpose of the Merchant Shipping (Vessels in Commercial Use for Sport or Pleasure) Regulations 1998 with effect from the 20 August 2013.
