Where has the pontoon got to be? Shore or quayside, tidal and winds to consider?

The hse won't approve any product, it will be your job to ensure it is safe for the purpose it is intended to serve. Usually they'll be more interested in your risk assessment paperwork than they will in the structure, and usually they'll only be interested if there is an accident.

So the question is, what is the purpose of the pontoon, what are the risks, and what can you do about them.

Yes Versa Dock must be an option but as Peter says, you may need to tell people where it is planned to go. I think several people sell/ supply versa dock as trade members , do a search- here is one recent forum note Versadock sale up to 8M

If your beach isn't too exposed, how about a Fusion Marine pontoon? (They make rafts too)

I'm not sure where that particular one is, there are quite a lot around here (they make them just down the road)
