Changes to the International Certificate of Competency (ICC)


Policy based on Resolution 40 and Notice from the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE)

In accordance with UNECE Resolution 40 (Revision 4), citizens and residents of countries  that are signatories to Resolution 40, (see ICC FAQ page) will be obliged to obtain an ICC from their own national issuing authority and not from IYT (with the exception of the United Kingdom and Latvia, see below).

**The government of Latvia has given written permission for IYT to issue ICCs to their own nationals and residents.

*** IYT has been authorised to issue ICC’s to United Kingdom Nationals for the past 16 years which are issued on behalf of the British Maritime & Coastguard Agency (MCA).

For example: an Austrian National living in Canada that can provide “proof of residency” in Canada would be allowed to receive an ICC from IYT.

*Proof of residency (examples) 
                Utility bill (electric or gas) 
                Property tax bill
                Telephone bill
                Insurance bill
