Global Marina Accreditation Schemes To Merge

by Mike Godfrey, Tax-News.com, Washington

26 November 2015


The new Gold Anchor Global Marina Accreditation scheme was launched on November 18, 2015, at the Marine Equipment Trade Show (METS). It will merge earlier schemes administered by the Yacht Harbour Association (TYHA) and the Marina Industries Association (MIA).

The scheme brings together the two organizations' respective Gold Anchor schemes, after TYHA and MIA announced their plans to merge their programs in November 2014. Since then they have worked collaboratively to develop the single global accreditation, combining the best features of both schemes, with consideration of industry changes and the increasing demands of marina customers.

Gold Anchor Accreditations will be awarded to those marinas showing commitment to upholding standards of infrastructure, procedures, and customer service.

Speaking at the METS launch, TYHA Chair Sarah Hanna said: "The work of combining the schemes is a classic example of the synergy that can be achieved by two willing parties working closely together. The new scheme will provide excellent and contemporary Global Marina Accreditation, with a clear focus on marina end users and their needs..."

The Gold Anchor Global Marina Accreditation will be progressively phased in, with current Gold Anchor marinas from across 26 countries re-audited as part of the three-year rolling accreditation cycle. New entrants to the scheme will automatically be audited under the new scheme, which will come into effect on April 1, 2016.
