The Marine and Coastguard Agency is consulting on revisions to MGN 570 Emergency Drills and MGN 571 Prevention of Man Overboard. Consultation closes 31st October.
These MGNs are being updated to reflect the implementation of the ILO Work in Fishing Convention C.188 and the future publication of MGN 588 – Compulsory Provision and Wearing of Personal Floatation Devices on Fishing Vessels. These MGNs will replace MGN 570(F) – Fishing Vessels: Emergency Drills and MGN 571(F) Fishing Vessels: Prevention of Man Overboard. https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/consultation-on-revisions-to-mgn-570-emergency-drills-and-mgn-571-prevention-of-man-overboard
