MMO commences I-VMS Roll-Out for Under 6m Vessels

MMO commences I-VMS roll-out phase for under six metre vessels.

MMO is now commencing the roll-out phase of inshore vessel monitoring system (I-VMS) devices to under six metre vessels. This phase continues the MMO’s support for all under 12 metre vessels to enable them to meet the requirements to have an I-VMS device once legislation comes into force early 2024.

Fishers with vessels under six metres will benefit from the same grant funding of up to £1,050 per vessel and the streamlined claims process, which now only requires proof of purchase before repayments are issued, typically within three to five working days. The under six metre fleet can make funding claims up until Monday 18 December 2023.
