This is to certify that the Tourism Authority in Mauritius had retained the services of Mr Peter Jacops in 2016 - 2017 to help in the implementation of the Pleasure Craft Management System which is a policy setting out guidelines for construction, licensing and operation of pleasure craft.

Mr Peter Jacops conducted workshops on ISO certification standards of pleasure craft for the benefit of stakeholders of the maritime community including boat constructors and surveyors of the Tourism Authority. He also carried out post-construction compliance and offset load tests upon different models of existing pleasure craft to determine their respective carrying capacities.

The Tourism Authority values Mr Peter Jacops’s contribution towards encouraging the transition from conventional boat construction methods, sometimes without any test or conformity certificates,  to the ISO standards. He is a professional in the craft certification domain with impressive work experience in enhancing boating safety.

The Tourism Authority highly recommends licensing bodies, boat construction firms and related organisations to enlist his services.

Gemini uses IMCI for certification but over and above certification Gemini’s experience with IMCI people has been fantastic because of the friendly help IMCI gives to people.

It started many years ago when we met Peter Jacops and has been the same ever since.

So from Gemini - a huge and sincere thank you to you all.




'In the tiny world of yacht and boat building, safety of products and certification of boats can become an issue if the wrong guys from heavy merchant shipping industry are involved. Thus, only the surveyors having hands on experience with small craft are really helpful; they know what they are doing and are aware of the industry practices and procedures. And one of such reputable inspectors we work with is Peter Jacops!'

I would like to write you and let you know what a pleasure it was working with Peter Jacops and the staff of International Marine Certification Institute.

Peter Jacops is a professional with all the interactions we had with him and he helped us raise our standards not only going through the certification process, but in our Quality Control and building process as well.

The interactions I’ve had with the other staff members was also very positive.
