Registration is now open for the annual National Marine Manufacturers Association’s engineering compliance and CE Seminars in Nashville, Tenn.

The compliance seminar runs from Nov. 30-Dec. 2 and the CE seminar will immediately follow from Dec. 2-3 at the Sheraton Nashville Downtown Hotel.

Both are hosted by the NMMA and the International Marine Certification Institute.

This year's seminars feature expanded agendas, including new technical topics and updates on the latest editions of several industry standards.

Those who attend the compliance seminar will receive a copy of the recently published American Boat and Yacht Council standards with their registration and will have an opportunity to discuss technical issues with the NMMA engineering standards department, NMMA/CE inspectors, ABYC staff and IMCI staff.

The new format will commence at the conclusion of the NMMA compliance seminar and will focus on the technical and procedural requirements for exporting boats to the European Union.

Special room rates are available until Nov. 6.
