PRESS RELEASE FROM
The Boat Safety Scheme (BSS) Management Committee has agreed anew four -year business plan to resource its work to 20 22 and invest i n improvements that will have an even longer -term benefit. The
plan also includes the first price rise in certification charges for eight years.
BSS Examiners will pay a new price of £36 (excluding VAT) for each certification they issue to a boat, which is a £7(ex VAT) rise that they will likely choose to pass onto customers.
The new price will apply from 1 April 2018 and the Scheme intends holding it for at least the whole of the four-year business plan period, which is designed to coincide with the four-year lifespan of BSS Certification.
Graham Watts, the BSS Manager said,‘The Scheme’s track record on keeping to a business plan and controlling costs has been good with the resultant freeze in the BSS Certifications price for the last eight years, but having considered all options, a price change now cannot be avoided.
‘Predicted inflationary pressures rising over the next four years means the BSS needs to invest in its information technology and training in order to maintain the efficiency gains we have already achieved.
‘Above all, it’s critical to invest to help avoid t he possibility of excessive inflation busting price rises in the business planning period beyond the next four years. .’
The new BSS business plan includes additional support to BSS Examiners, projects to improve the quality of examinations and enhancements to customer service.
The Scheme acknowledges that times are tough and boaters fac e other price increases associated with their boating activity, so we will remain committed to continued effectiveness and efficiency to hold down costs while delivering more results.
Throughout the four -year business plan period boaters will see further investment in influencing boat owners’ behaviours, which is the key to keeping people safe from serious harm.
The BSS will also continue to support research into the risks such as carbon monoxide, as it has tangible benefits for boaters , not least the sharing of the best quality safety advice in the most effective ways.
Certification income represents almost 90% of the Scheme’s revenue all of which is invested into the work underpinning the BSS Examination service, risk research and review and the promotion of boat safety advice.
