MHRA Cat C Medical Kit must be purchased from licensed suppliers, says Ocean Safety
Ocean Safety are reminding vessel operators of the rules set out by the UK Government’s medicine regulator MHRA (Medicines & Healthcare ProductsRegulatory Agency) for buying the necessary Category C First Aid Kit for all coded boats.
Ocean Safety, who are specialists in the worldwide supply, distribution, service and hire of marine safety equipment, have invested heavily in acquiring the correct license to be able to supply the Cat C Kit direct to customers. The first aid kit cannot be sold through unlicensed third parties, only by licensed sellers who hold a Wholesale Distribution Authorisation (WDA). The ruling has been in force for some time but is now being more strongly enforced.
