ICC & CEVNI test centres
The International Certificate if Competence is issued in conformity with Resolution No. 40 of the Working Party on Inland Water Transport.
The ICC is required by many European countries for certain categories of pleasure boat. It is also useful in countries where compulsory certificates are required of nationals simply because officials expect to see such a certificate. See 'Boating Abroad' for further details.
Applicants requiring a certificate valid for inland waters must pass a written test on the CEVNI rules (European Inland Waterways Regulations). This is a multiple choice test based on the rules laid out in the book European Waterways Regulations (order code G17).
Who can run tests for the ICC and CEVNI?
RYA recognised training centres and affiliated clubs can run ICC and CEVNI tests, but must first read and comply with the conditions in the Guidance Notes for ICC Test Centres below. Some organisations and testers may need to apply to the RYA prior to offering these tests.
