Small vessel compliance standard

Small Vessel Compliance Program – Recreational Boating Schools

In July of 2014 Transport Canada passed into law the new standard for recreational boating Schools TP15136 now commonly referred to as the RBS. National One Design Sailing Academy was the first Recreational Boating School to meet with the new standard and file its compliance report. The new standard imposes stringent new safety requirements for schools and their boats as well as required course material.  All schools are required to meet the safety and operational requirements in the Canada Shipping Act and evidence (the certificate) of participation in the Transport Canada Small Commercial Vessel Compliance Program (SVCP) must be kept on board the teaching vessel at all times.  

Whatever recreational boating school you are working with, ask to see it when you board their boats.
