What is The Marine Equipment Directive Council Directive 96/98/EC?


The Marine Equipment Directive (MED) was originally adopted by the EU in 1996 and the UK implemented the MED through the Merchant Shipping (Marine Equipment) Regulations 1999 and the Merchant Shipping (Marine Equipment) (Amendment) Regulations 2009.  The Directive covers certain statutory equipment carried and used on ships registered under the flags of the European Union member states, which are required to meet the international conventions such as SOLAS and MARPO

The principle aim of the MED is to ensure that equipment meets a common standard of safety and performance acceptable to each member state through the harmonisation of their approval requirements. The conformity assessment procedure under Directive 96/98/EC (MED) confirms that the equipment has been type tested and approved, which authorises the manufacturer to affix the mark of conformity (wheelmark) to the equipment.

Approval to this directive involves tests that ensure that the equipment will be able to handle the harsh environments out at sea.  Only once these tests have been passed, can the product can show the Shipwheel logo.
