The MCA/Eastleigh Council successfully procecuted Rupert Bonham-Smith for running a charter rib without any coding, the saga is on here if you do a search.
The MCA did have a voluntary list of coded vessels on there old website which responsible owners could apply to have there vessels added to if they wished. Picked up a few enquiries from the website as it gave a point of contact for the owner. However they have revamped the website so can't find it now.
Finally I noticed a poster in the Guardroom of Fort Blockhouse, Gopsort, the other day from the MCA with a contact phone number to report illegal charter boats.
