European Union releases directive for recreational boats and PWC

The European Union’s RCD (Recreational Craft Directive) Application Guide to the 2013/53/EU Directive for recreational boats and personal watercraft has been published. The NMMA said in its Currents newsletter that the guide, traditionally known as the CC Guide, provides direction on complying with the requirements listed in the RCD.

Here is the full document.

Another important document is the Recreational Craft Sectoral Group Guidelines, which was recently published for 2018. These guidelines have traditionally been prepared to enable the European Notified Bodies to perform the correct conformity assessment procedures for recreational craft and their components and are an invaluable resource for the entire marine industry.

NMMA’s Robert Newsome (rnewsome@nmma.org) can provide guidance for U.S. boatbuilders.
