IOMICA measurement interpretation
Posted: 14 Mar 2013, 10:10
My NCA has advised me (as an "official measurer") about an issue with the Certification Measurement Form:
I can't see any mention of this request for interpretation on the IOMICA Web site or the IOMICA Forum. Have I missed something, please?The MYA tech team asked IOMICA for an interpretation on who is the builder and who should sign the declaration. The response is as follows.
Where a boat is supplied 'ready to sail' from one manufacturer/supplier, then this supplier is the builder who should sign the builder's declaration on the CMF.
Where the hull, ballast and spars are supplied by more than one manufacturer/supplier, then it is the assembler of these components, who is the builder who should sign the builder's declaration.
There should not be multiple builders' signatures on the CMF. However the builder may wish to obtain assurance from the suppliers that their components comply with IOM class rules.
