About the Marine Equipment Directive (MED) 2014/90/EU

Who is the directive for?

If you are a manufacturer, an Authorised Representative for the manufacturer located outside the European Union, Distributor or an Importer for the equipment listed in the MED regulation, then this affects you.

This Directive applies to equipment placed or to be placed on board an EU ship and for which the approval of the flag State administration is required by the international instruments, regardless of whether the ship is situated in the Union at the time when it is fitted with the equipment.
