Replacement of Equivalent Certificates

The MROVCP, MROCP and MSCCE certificates are considered to be equivalent to the current qualifications. Where a replacement is requested the relevant current certificate will be issued, stating it is a replacement.

Replacement of RROCP, ROCP and Other Certificates

Where a replacement is requested and the certificate is not equivalent to current qualifications and is no longer issued, a letter confirming certification will be issued. The holder of a RROCP or ROCP qualification will be issued with a letter and a wallet size card confirming certification. The RROCP and ROCP qualification permits the holder to operate MF/HF and VHF radios. However, it is not equivalent to the current LROCP qualification.
