Posted on by in

The Malta Transport Authority (MTA) has amended the Commercial Yacht Code of 2010 to remove the 3,000-ton boundary (as charter yachts get bigger in size) and include requirements about helicopter landing/parking areas.

Also, its survey and certification process has been made “more user transparent, friendly and less time consuming”, according to an MTA statement; and MARPOL and SOLAS up to-date requirements are applicable (for example, ISM and ISPS).

The revised version of the Code will come into effect Oct. 1.
