Intensified inspections of radio licences and proficiency certificates in boating carried out in July

Published 11.07.2017

In July, FICORA carries out intensified inspections of radio licences and proficiency certificates for boaters in Helsinki and Hanko in cooperation with the Helsinki Boat Police and the Gulf of Finland Coast Guard District. It is easy to sort out all licence issues related to boating via FICORA’s eServices and even receive a copy of the licence in your mobile phone.

Before taking the boat out, boaters should check that they have a valid radio licence. In addition to a ship station licence, the user of a maritime VHF radiotelephone must hold a personal certificate of competence. The purpose of the radio licences and competence requirements is to secure the interference-free use of maritime frequencies and radio communication as well as to ensure that boaters know how to act.
