Speed@Seawork presents export licences, vibration and training

The Speed@Seawork conference speakers were, once again, well received by the delegates.

On the first day of the event Alistair Hughes, Team Leader CSS Boats within UK MoD, updated the 130 delegates on MoD small boats procurement and discussed shock mitigation. This theme was continued on the second day by Dr Tom Gunston, specialist consultant on noise and vibration exposure and mitigation, and Senior Consultant at Finch Consulting, as the conference transferred to the Seawork exhibition.

Claire Harrison, Head of Business Awareness at Department for International Trade (DIT) was keen to inform manufacturers, agents and distributors about their responsibilities as exporters in the world of COTS and MOTS products in small boat manufacture and equipment supply.

Speaking after the conference she said, “I was delighted to be invited to speak about when an export licence is required. There are a range of open licences for military and dual use (commercial) items. I would be very happy to be contacted if anyone is uncertain about the status of their company’s goods or to hear about the EU Dual Use open licence which will be required in the event of a “No Deal”.

The conference ended with presentations from Alex W. Vredeveldt, Senior Scientist Naval Architect, Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research on “Testing of boat impact mitigating seats” and Mike Blood, Senior Lecturer (Maritime Safety) School of Maritime Science and Engineering Warsash Maritime Academy talking about “Fast Rescue Boat Training for STCW and OPITO”.
