In the early 1990s, IMCI was the only European certification body to offer advanced certification, which obviously aroused skepticism and criticism from some competitors. The Belgian authorities do not have an accreditation system and are concerned that the ICD has a small number of employees and does not employ full-time inspectors. At its meeting on 20 May 1996, the European Commission had a particular item on the agenda to discuss IMCI`s approach to certification and whether that approach was in line with EU expectations. The IMCI model is the subject of an in-depth debate and, in the end, the representative of the Belgian Member State is satisfied and accepts IMCI as a notified body. This is a very important decision for the sector. Belgium can not only inform organisations other than the large classification societies of the certification of vessels and their components, but several other countries, such as France and the Netherlands, follow this example and note their own new small notified bodies. This has broken the exclusive grip of classification societies on the certification of pleasure craft in Europe. It should be noted that, in the early years of the IMCI, most of the EU`s administrative procedures, documents, organisations and oversight are still under development and nothing has been finalised; no directives, ISO standards, notified bodies or cooperation agreements. Imci`s early participation and key roles in ICOMIA, RMAG, RSG and ISO allow to be in a good position in each of these organizations, as they have gained strength and concentration in the naval industry. The Low Voltage Agreement Group (LOVAG) is an open agreement that can be joined by any certification body in the world that complies with LOVAG`s rules. Founded in 1991, LOVAG currently has six signatories to the agreement, from Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Sweden and Spain.
Teachers check the schedule of each group for logistical purposes and consider alternative activities if the weather is not appropriate. Before the trip, the event manager works with students to identify possible safety scenarios, and they play the game how to react to these situations when they occur. Camp is an opportunity for older students to work in small groups with Grade 9 students, so they get to know each other and juniors feel safe to seek advice if needed. The RTLB  is included in the camps so that he and the students get to know each other. As a result, students feel safer when they approach them and increase the likelihood that problems will be addressed in the early stages. . . .
