The Guidance Resources page also contains a link to the UK Territorial Seas map and Operating Guidance for Scottish Waters. These show areas, known as Internal or Inland Waters, where Foundation and Intermediate holders may operate from a vessel.

On internal waters such as the Thames Estuary, Solent or Bristol Channel the optional /M suffix may be used.
