  2. How can I obtain a listing of all registered equipment in Virginia?
    A listing of all registered equipment in Virginia can be obtained by requesting the information in writing under the FOIA and paying a fee.

  3. Can you provide us with a printout of what your records show registered for my company?

    Certificates were issued based on the information reported by the inspection company. If there is an error or errors, please specify the VA number marked on the vessel, the correction to be made, and a corrected certificate will be issued.
