A summary of responses and outcome for the consulation on arrangements for disposing of marine flares on pleasure vessels has now been published.

Next steps include government engaging with the sector to establish a national network of local schemes. This network will offer an accessible and reliable route for boatowners to dispose of pyrotechnics.

As the Maritime and Coastguard Agency’s voluntary public-facing service is withdrawn, the industry-led one will assume prominence, eventually becoming the sole route for future arrangements.
