Sorry to bring it back to the original thread! if the vessel is coded cat 4 under the yellow code and not the Nominated Departure code and the driver has a PB2, does just the 3 miles from land apply? Or it it 3 miles from where ever the vessels departs?

My understanding is in that situation a PB2 cannot be used.

You can check whether the area of operation is at "sea" by checking out Categorisation of waters MSN 1776 (M) produced by the MCA
Polwart is correct - A commerical endorsed PB2 is limited to cat 6

A Nassau registered DSV mothership on Charter to a company registered in Singapore but with am office in the UK steams out of Aberdeen to the Ekofisk field (owned by an American company) about 200 miles from anywhere and on arrival switches to DP to remain on station 1nm away from the platforms. When it lowers a 6 metre RIB into the water to shuttle to the platform with PAX and gear, what ticket does the RIB's Driver/Skipper need ?

This isn't a hypothetical question as these were the circumstances of my first trip offshore

Also does the MCA have Authority in International water?
