Boat Code identification is compulsory for all recreational vessels being registered in South Australia for the first time, or when vessels change ownership.
HIN plates can only be issued and affixed by an appointed Boat Code Agent/Approved Examiner.
A licence defines the need to obtain recognition / certification and registration to undertake a certain business activity.
Boat Code is an identification system for registered recreational vessels and involves fixing a set of small plates bearing a Hull Identification Number (HIN) to the hull of a vessel as a security measure or validating the HIN fixed by the manufacturer. The HIN is similar to Vehicle Identification Numbers on motor vehicle compliance plates. Each HIN will be unique to the vessel and permanently linked to the hull.
