The European Commission refers to the «CE» Marking of products as a “passport” which can allow a manufacturer to freely circulate their products within the European marketplace.
The «CE» mark focuses on pleasure, leisure or ‘recreational’ boats being registered, used, bought or sold between 2.5m and 24m within Europe. This legislation is enshrined in The Recreational Craft Directive 94/25/EC (amended by 2003/44/EC) (aka RCD). If the boat complies with the RCD and the Essential Safety Requirements it will ultimately lead to the boat achieving the «CE» mark. The purpose of «CE» marking is both to eliminate existing trade barriers and to increase the safety of products allowed on the market within the EU/EEA, by applying the «CE» mark the owner or manufacturer (or his representative) states that the product meets the legal requirements laid out in the Directives.
Responsibility for ensuring that a boat complies with the Directive lies with the company or person first putting the product into service or on the European Market, for use or sale, new or second hand. This responsibility includes signing and holding the legal paperwork.
When the boat meets all requirements of the Recreational craft Directive, it can be awarded with its «CE» mark. When successfully «CE» marked, the boat is given build plate information and a unique identification number known as the CIN.
