Ship sanitation certificates

The Association of Port Health Authorities (APHA) recommended to its members a standard charging regime for the issue of Ship Sanitation Exemption and Ship Sanitation Control Certificates. At River Tees Port Health Authority we have adopted these standing charges which are as follows;

Gross Tonnage
Charge (£)
Up to 1,000
1,001 to 3,000
3,001 to 10,000
10,001 to 20,000
20,001 to 30,000
Over 30,000

At the present time all our charges are based on tonnage regardless of how many persons the vessel is able to carry and no extra charges are incurred for out of hours visits.
