Marine (M) Notices

M Notices relevent to Boatmasters and Professional Skippers

M Notices publicise to the shipping and fishing industries important safety, pollution prevention; and other relevant information. • Merchant Shipping Notices (MSNs) often contain the fine detail of UK law and are legally enforceable when referred to by a Statutory Instrument. • Marine Guidance Notes (MGNs) give guidance and strong recommendations about best practice to industry on interpretation of law and general safety advice. • Marine Information Notes (MINs) provide less important time limited information and changes of address after which they expire.
