The Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) has now released Marine Guidance Notice (MGN) 364 amendment 1 - Traffic Separation Schemes (TSS) - Application of Rule 10 and Navigation in the Dover Strait.


The International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea, 1972, as amended, (COLREG), govern the conduct of all vessels in and near TSS which have been adopted by the International Maritime Organization (IMO).


This note draws attention to mariners on the mandatory reporting regime and the recommendations for navigating and other activities within the Dover Strait.


This amendment to the MGN updates section 5 with regard to recreational activities in and around a UK traffic separation scheme (TSS).
