Madera Rigid Inflatable Boats, who name a regulations and standards they comply to.

At boats.com boating regulations i've already found some important regulations, bu i was wondering what your experiences with these are. Are they ever checked?

Any help would be appreciated

Assuming it is offshore in the sense "far away from coast", not necessarily international shipping

my advise is to talk to Det Norske Veritas (or Lloyds Register) as competent Class Societie(s), or The Maritime Coastguard Agency as Flag State or Shelf State.

Not to forget safety systems imposed by clients, eg oil majors or utilities.

International rules and regulations tend to be slightly tricky and sometimes subject to interpretation, and it is not easier when its about small craft that maybe carry passengers

Good luck
