Public told boating safety is social responsibility

The Maritime and Port Authority of Brunei Darussalam (MPABD) urged the public, especially boat owners and operators, to be vigilant before and during water activities.

The MPABD requires boat operators to attend Class 9 (Limited) course and qualify for Class 9 (Limited) licences before operating any boats.

Every boat operator is issued with the Permission Letter for Passenger Boat Service, the number of crew members and passengers allowed and the usage of lifejackets are stated in the letter. If boat operators do not abide by the stipulated requirements, MPABD will retract the permission letter effective immediately, said the agency.
