CEO Chat Dear Member
To say June was a month to remember is something of an understatement. As I look back now, it seems barely possible that we got through the sheer volume of work that we did.
It started with a Maritime & Coastguard Agency audit of our Certifying Authority. These are never the easiest of days and auditors are always looking for whatever they can find. Of course, we always welcome the opportunity to improve our systems and processes. So we heaved a heavy sigh of relief as it was a clean audit with very few concerns.
Next up was the annual Seawork exhibition at Southampton. This is a renowned three-day show for the workboat sector and draws a number of members to the event and to our stand. I was unable to leave the stand due to the number of visitors. As part of our commitment to the Small Craft Surveyors Forum, we helped deliver a great afternoon’s seminar.
