I aim to fit an examination in to a time slot to suit you weekdays, evenings or weekends.

The purpose of the BSS is to help minimise the risks to all visitors to the waterways and the waterways' workforce, and to help protect adjacent property,

The remit of the BSS is only related to the condition, equipment and use of boats.

Navigation Authorities use to the BSS to help develop a set of national minimum legal safety requirements and to run an examination service to verify that each boat registered with the navigation authority meets the requirements.

This is the Boat Safety Scheme Examination and if the boat meets the requirements, it is a given a Boat Safety Scheme Certificate, which is valid for four years. Owners will recieve a full BSS Certification report from the examiner either on a paper print out, or as a electronic file, or both if the owner wishes.

This like car MOTs, is in effect a receipt-style certificate. 

A Boat Safety Scheme Certificate is valid for four years. An Annex XV Declaration of Conformity to Recreational Craft Directive can often be used for its first four years to support a boat registration and a Annex IIIa Declaration can be accepted for the first 12 months - but whichever is supporting your boat's registration, the examination can be carried up to two months early. This page points to things you should know when arranging a BSS examination.

Make arrangements in advance, you can book an examination up to (but not exceeding) two months before your old certificate; or RCD Declaration of Conformity 4-year deadline runs out; or the Annex IIIa first year anniversary.

If your boat passes with two months or less left on your existing certificate, the examiner will post-date the new certificate to start from the date when either the old one expired;  the fourth anniversay of the DoC or first-year date of the Annex IIIa document.

This means you do not lose any of the full four-year, or one-year validity of the existing document as relevant.

The BSS recommend taking advantage of this facility, because if your boat fails for any reason, you will still have some time to put things right.

The BSS calls this process forward dating - the full detail is here Advance Booking of Examinations

Is everything in place for the examination?
Even if you have no old certificate or DoC it is a good idea to contact an examiner well in advance of needing to get your boat licensed, registered or take up a mooring.

You need to consider if everything is ready for a full examination to take place such as: Can the examiner get to the boat? Does he need permission of any land owners? Are keys involved? Is there gas aboard? etc..

My boat is very small and has an outboard motor, do I need BSS certification?

On most waterways, a BSS examination is not required in respect of any privately owned, open vessel (i.e. a vessel in which all the accommodation is completely open to the elements) if it has no domestic cooking, heating, refrigerating or lighting appliances installed and it is propelled solely by an outboard engine.

Contact your navigation authority if you have a craft in public use or a workboat for more detail about BSS certification.
