What are the obligations under the VTM Regulations of the MCA and of shipmasters relating to bunkering during exceptional weather and sea conditions in UK waters?

MCA Oral Exam Questions

If the MCA are of the opinion that a ship in an area in UK waters for which exceptionally bad weather or sea conditions are forecast should not be bunkered or should only be bunkered subject to certain conditions, they must inform the master of that opinion.

Any such recommendation or opinion of the MCA must be given by the quickest means available and if not in writing, must be confirmed in writing as soon as is practicably possible. If a shipmaster is informed by the MCA of such an opinion, the master must ensure that his ship is not bunkered or that the conditions subject to which the ship should be bunkered are complied with, as the case may be.
