What are the UK statutory requirements relating to use of VTS in territorial seas?

The master of a UK ship must ensure that, when the ship enters a VTS area in the territorial waters of an EEA State (i. e. an EU Member State, Norway or Iceland), the ship must comply with the rules of the VTS if they are in accordance with IMO Guidelines. The master of a non-UK ship must ensure that, when the ship enters a VTS area in UK territorial waters, the ship must comply with the published or promulgated VTS rules.
