Notified Body number : 0493

Marine Equipment Directive 2014/90/EU

Marine_Equipment_Directive_96-98-EC__0.jpgThe Marine Equipment Directive covers any ship flying a flag of an EEA member state. Conformity assessment is through a Notified Body, such as Centexbel, and the compliance mark is the Ship's Wheel.
The MED is aimed at ensuring that equipment which has to meet the requirements of international conventions (e.g., SOLAS, MARPOL, etc.) agreed at IMO (the International Maritime Organisation), additionally meets a common standard of safety and performance.

It also ensures that certificates issued by European Union member states, or on their behalf by notified bodies, are acceptable to each member state through the harmonisation of their approval requirements.
