Cancellation & Refunds Policy

From the date that the IRC Certificate is issued and for the remainder of the calendar year, there will be no cancellation other than following a review of a boat’s rating in accordance with the IRC Class Rules. If that situation arises any refund will be at the sole discretion of Seahorse Rating Limited.

When an application and payment has been lodged and the IRC Certificate has not been processed, a refund less an administration charge of £10.00 will apply. The owner must contact Seahorse Rating Limited by telephone (01590 677030) or e-mail info@rorcrating.com as soon as possible to cancel the process.

Certificates will normally be valid upon payment of the appropriate fee from the date of issue and for the remainder of the current calendar year, however:

  • if incorrect information has been provided to Seahorse Rating Limited and the IRC Certificate has been processed, there will be an Amendment Fee applied to correct the rated data.
  • in circumstances where Seahorse Rating Limited has issued an IRC Certificate with erroneous information of its own making, a corrected IRC Certificate will be issued at no further cost to the owner.

Weighing/Measurement Services Late Cancellation Policy

If an owner or his representative cancels the weighing appointment, a Late Cancellation Fee may apply.

This will be charged at £40.00 if cancellation takes place within 48 hours of the appointment.  Additionally, the carriage charges for delivery and return of the weighing equipment will apply if it has been dispatched before notice of cancellation is received.

MyIRC Transaction Security

At the point when payment is required you will be connected directly to the Barclaycard Business host. Barclaycard Business will process the payment and provide you with confirmation and authorisation of the payment. Barclaycard Business will inform Seahorse Rating Limited electronically when your payment has been successful. Seahorse Rating Limited will not be passed your credit/debit card details.
