What should I do if I already have a device fitted to my vessel but that device is no longer type approved?

You should not attempt to uninstall the device yourself – the engineer who installs your replacement device will uninstall and safely dispose of your old device.

Research the type approved devices to consider which will best suit your vessel and needs, placing an order as soon as possible. A schedule of port visits has been sent to fishers with details of when installers will be available for bookings in your port.  

Suppliers can also advise you on the options for your vessel type.
