Compliance with the rules (Part I)

In the email received from Lloyd’s Register of Shipping on 29 May 2007, it was stated that that the FV Gaul had been built in accordance with Class and statutory requirements.
Similarly, the final report of the Gaul 2004 RFI, states on page 10 that the vessel was “built to Lloyd’s Register of Shipping classification +100 A1 (Stern Trawler), Ice Class III for the hull.” In their letter dated 7 November 2006, the Department for Transport (DfT) also confirmed that ”the FV Gaul and her sister ships were built under Lloyd’s approval”.
Prompted by these remarks and as promised in an earlier post, we have decided to set out the reasons why these assertions are not wholly correct. These and further clarifications in this respect have been published on this PAGE
