Ship Sanitation & Water Sampling Update

Due to COVID 19 working arrangements it has been determined that ship sanitation certificates will be issued in an electronic format and based on sufficient provision of correct documentation by the vessel.


Unfortunately, this means routine water sampling has been suspended for the foreseeable future.


Once the UK Government lockdown policy is eased, water sampling inspections will be reviewed in line with Mersey Port Health Authority work based risk assessments. Please check for the latest updates.


In the meantime please see the attached list of documentation which will allow the ship sanitation certificate to be processed and issued subject to officer checks.
