Marine Equpment Directive

BåtrattFrom 18th September 2016 there is a new European Directive regarding Marine Equipment, 2014/90/EU

The new Directive 2014/90/EU, which came into force on 18th September 2016, superseeded the old Directive 96/98/EG.

RISE is a Notified Body for conformity assessment activities for the European market. 


An approved conformity assessment  gives the manufacturer possibility to use the "wheel mark" on the assessed equipment.


In most cases the assessment starts with a type examination, which leads to an EC Type Examination Certificate. In addition to this the manufacturer has to either get his Quality System or the produced Equipment assessed by a Notified Body. This will be confirmed in an EC Product/Production-Quality Assurance System Certificate or Certificate of Conformity.
