HIN and MIC codes ?
I'm from Belgium and 3-4 months ago I bought a Northcraft near Hull in UK. The boat is from 2008 equipped with a 150 Yam. (Not bought at northcraft)
I'm trying to do the registration in my country and my customs ask me some papers especially the info about the EC approval.
They ask me the CIN number. (HIN number)
It's a 14 digits/letters code composed like this :
the 2 first letters = code of the country
the 3 other letters : code of the manufacturer (MIC : Manufacture Identification Code)
(Also known as the HIN 3, which is the first three letters
of the vessel's Hull Identification Number and denotes the manufacturer of the vessel.)
the 5 other letters (letters and digits) = Serial number of the boat. Mine is only 4 digits...
the next 2 letters: Month of construction.
the next 2 digits: Year of construction.
I think it will be something like this
GB XXX X1108 JA 08
UK XXX X1108 JA 08
Do you know a website with a list of manufactures' and their MIC codes. I found some websites in USA but not in UK.
I'm waiting for the answer of J. Hewitt but I'm not sure that he has a MIC code for its company...I hope so !!!!
I don't know what to do if he hasn't....Any ideas?
Is there anyone in Europe who has a Northcraft here in the forum? I've seen some Northcraft in NL so I suppose they have a HIN... Crazy Europe !! It makes me crazy!
Thanks a lot for your advices
