MCA Brexit contingency planning continues

For those involved in the manufacture, distribution and supply of marine equipment the Maritime and Coastguard Agency's latest Marine Information Notice 590 is a must read.

The Notice deals with UK conformity assessment procedures for marine equipment in the event of the UK's Withdrawal from the EU without a deal.

Before the UK withdraws from the European Union (‘EU’), its regulatory regime relies on the implementation of the EU’s marine equipment directive (2014/90/EU) (‘MED’) to discharge international obligations and to meet its objectives to enhance safety at sea and to prevent marine pollution from UK ships. If the UK withdraws from the EU on 29 March 2019 without a deal, the UK will no longer be part of the MED regime.

The Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) has brought forward Regulations, to come into force on exit day to establish UK conformity assessment procedures to ensure that the UK can continue to comply with its international obligations by applying international standards to marine equipment to be placed on UK ships and for the enforcement of those standards. Information Note 590 gives information on these UK conformity assessment procedures and highlights the key practical changes from the MED to the UK conformity assessment regime as well as general information on marine equipment acceptance.
