The Belgian Finance Office has confirmed to the Cruising Association (CA) that there will now be no fines or penalties for UK vessels visiting Belgium which have UK marine red diesel in their tanks.

This will hopefully attract visitors back to the country after many sailors stayed away last year.

However, 100% fuel duty must still be paid on all red diesel which is purchased before a trip to Belgium. The full stipulations are contained in the note from the CA’s Regulations and Technical Services Group.

Hopefully the Belgium customs officials have been told...
