The plasticated re-usable checklist sheets were withdrawn in 2017 because of the transitory nature of any markings, the record does not last six years. As such, they do not provide inherently the level of protection an examiner needs.WWW PicGm 90x90

V5 Blank BSS Examination report (certificate) for hand completion Now withdrawn due to potential abuse by boat owners. As an alternative you may want to offer the boat owner a personal receipt of or acknowledgement of examination. It should not state the result, but in case of dispute it should include the date of examination and all details of the boat examined including the name, any registration number, the make, model, size, construction and engine arrangements and year of manufacture. You must provide all your customers with an electronic or printed-out version of the BSSER document generated through Salesforce. Please provide both formats where requested to by the boat owner.
