The European Commission this week adopted an amending proposal for the EU's Recreational Craft Directive that includes new marine engine exhaust emission limits and improvements to boating safety requirements, according to the International Council of Marine Industry Associations.

The new exhaust emission limits propose at least a 20 percent reduction of emissions from recreational boats.

“Acceptance of this proposal will give us one exhaust emission rule applicable in all global key markets, including the EU, U.S.A., Canada and Japan, which impacts manufacturers’ costs in this tough market of today,” ICOMIA technical manager Udo Kleinitz said in a statement. “The recreational marine industry welcomes the confirmation of the European Commission’s proposal.”

The draft will now be considered by the European Parliament and European Council under the ordinary legislative procedure, ICOMIA said.
