THE NATIONAL INLAND AND OFFSHORE COMMITTEE

LISTING YOUR VESSEL

The National Inland and Offshore Committee
The National Inland and Offshore Committee deals with issues of safety and the related regulatory issues. Because of our long tradition of safety, SAS has been authorised by SAMSA to conduct safety inspections and sailing exams. SAS is the only agency that has been authorised by SAMSA to issue skipper's tickets. The National Inland and Offshore Committee is thus responsible for:
arrow Negotiations with SAMSA to minimise the negative impact of regulations on South African sailors
arrow Administering a certification system covering Certificates of Listing, Certificates of Fitness and Certificates of Competence.
arrow Managing a pool of examiners to conduct examinations for Certificates of Competence.
arrow Managing a pool of safety officers to conduct safety inspections for Certificates of Fitness.
arrow Authorising Controlled Events.
