The Maritime and Coastguard Agency carry out public consultations connected to our work on forthcoming legislation, guidance and other matters as appropriate. We endeavour to follow the Government’s Code of Practice on Consultation, which is published on the Cabinet office website.

MCA consultations which are open for comment can be accessed through the “Current Consultations” link below. If you have comments on the consultation topic, these should be addressed to the nominated representative.

If you have a comment or complaint about the way a particular consultation is conducted, or if you feel it does not comply with the Government’s Code of Practice, please contact the Agency’s Consultation Co-ordinator at or on 023 8032 9469.

If you have responded to any of our consultations please also consider completing our short feedback form (78KB). We are always looking for ways to improve our consultation process.

When a consultation period has ended the consultation document is moved to the 'Closed Consultations' section.
