The Royal Yachting Association (RYA) is now able to provide monthly and annual online access to the small craft standards relevant to the Recreational Craft Directive (RCD).

The RYA, in consultation with British Marine, has grouped the harmonised standards into packages which are bespoke to Commercial Vessels; Dinghies; Motor Boats; Narrowboats; RIBs; Sailing Vessels; and the Supply Chain. 

For those who work across multiple sectors a package including all RCD harmonised standards is available.

Thanks to an agreement the RYA has put in place with the British Standards Institute, they are now able to offer access to these standards on a monthly or annual basis through our RYA Books App. Those with annual access will be able to download and print the standards whereas monthly subscribers will be restricted to view only.

To view details of the standards included in each collection and to purchase a subscription please visit the Technical Standards Access page in the RYA Web Shop here.
