MCA Marine Guidance Note MGN499 (M+F) states that Life-saving appliances should be regularly serviced at an approved service station. An ‘approved service station’ is one that has been formally accredited by the manufacturer and has been approved by the National Administration (in the UK this is the Maritime Coastguard Agency (MCA) on behalf of the Secretary of State). It has certified personnel who have been trained to undertake servicing and repairs, and also to repack lifejackets ready for operational use; it carries genuine spares and is kept fully informed of the current servicing procedures by the manufacturer.

Simon Safety is an authorised Mullion Service Station and approved by the Maritime Coastguard Agency on behalf of the Secretary of State.
