Re: International Certificate of Competency

We've only spent two months tihs past year on the French inland waterways and we did not have anyone ask for ICC or CEVNI..............

Just shows not all experiences are the same.

Why break the law did you have the ICC with the CEVNI extensions

Re: International Certificate of Competency

Sorry, think you missed my point. We have both ICC and CEVNI.
I was simply stating that unlike those others saying the CEVNI is checked - we never ever had anyone check ours.

Re: International Certificate of Competency

The French are mostly interested in your ICP rather than ICC and if your VHF certificates are in order.
For a while, there was an obligation in Belgium to have two VHF's on board. They have lifted this obligation for visiting yachts of non-residents.
The mix between European ruling and local laws makes it often impossible to comply, so the French prefer to looking only for the obvious.
Although very strange things can happen. Recently a Dutch (professional) skipper was lifted from his vessel because he spoke "insufficient" French, according to the feelings of the French authorities.
What happened in real was that the Dutch RP (police of the inland waterways) picked up a French skipper and chained his vessel because he could not make himself "understandable". Of course a ridiculous action in a so-called United Europe. But the actions of retaliation of the French were immediate and on spot.
The daughter of the Dutch skipper who was fluent in French had to come to liberate her father.
