International Certificate of Competency for Operators of Pleasure Craft
The Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport
wishes to draw attention to the fact that some European Union Member States require
the operators of pleasure craft operating within their territorial waters to hold
an International Certificate for Operators of Pleasure Craft (ICC).
Resolution No. 40 (as amended by Resolution No.
71) of the Inland Transport Committee of the United Nations Economic Commission
for Europe (UNECE) outlines the requirements for the issue of the ICC. Resolution
No. 40 also lists the countries that have notified the UNECE Secretariat that
they have accepted the Resolution.
An ICC issued by a government that has accepted
Resolution No. 40 indicates that the ICC holder has demonstrated the level of
competence required by Resolution No. 40 for the ICC to be issued.
The Irish Sailing Association (ISA) is appointed
as an approved body to issue the ICC on behalf of the Department of Transport,
Tourism and Sport. The contact information for the ISA is given below:
