#Cruising - The Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport (DTTAS) wishes to draw attention to the fact that some European Union member states require the operators of pleasure craft operating within their territorial waters to hold an International Certificate for Operators of Pleasure Craft (ICC).
Irish Sailing, which supersedes Marine Notice No 12 of 2011, Resolution No. 40 (as amended by Resolution No. 71) of the Inland Transport Committee of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) outlines the requirements for the issue of the ICC.
Resolution No. 40 also lists the countries that have notified the UNECE Secretariat that they have accepted the Resolution.
An ICC issued by a government that has accepted Resolution No. 40 indicates that the ICC holder has demonstrated the level of competence required by Resolution No. 40 for the ICC to be issued.
