- The vessel is fitted with flotation material to prevent it from sinking,
- The noise emitted from the vessel does not exceed 10dB above the ambient noise level. (measured from shore under max power).
- The length and build of the vessel meets the category for registration in competitions.
A Safety Survey Certificate in A4 size will be issued and a scale version copy must be displayed in the vessel cabin. Safety Certificates is valid for 1 year.
