Most countries require a certificate of competence in line with the requirements of the vessel’s flag state’s regulations. However I've had to show my certificate in various countries, such as Germany and Croatia, even though a certificate is not required in my country. Although we might have been able to convince the authorities that we did not need a certificate, having it sure helped. So you might consider it just a helping hand. Besides that, you always learn something when sailing, so taking the certificate is not a waste of time if you do it to learn :cool:

Code Européen des Voies de la Navigation Intérieure

For the European inland waterways, you need an additional endorsement to your International Certificate of Competency (ICC). So if you intend to go inland here, you need something to endorse. :D
You also need to pass a simple test to get the endorsement.

All those regulations are not my cup of tea, but they are enforced :hothead
