It is not mandatory to respond to all of the questions in the survey; participants are welcome to only complete those areas that they have an interest or expertise in.

What happens after the consultation has closed?
All of the consultation responses will be considered by the project teams. The project boards will make recommendations on what should be changed for the final version of the guidance, and record their reasons. The draft version will then be edited and amended as necessary.

The final decision on the content of the published guidance will be made by the National Operational Guidance programme board. The Fires on board vessels guidance is due to be published in June 2017.
