The British Marine Technical team is dedicated to assisting members by supplying up to the minute advice and technical documentation and by representing our members on a number of key technical committees to ensure their best interests are safeguarded. Whether unearthing the details of an ISO standard, or signposting sources of business support, we are on hand to help.
As a member you can also contact us for assistance covering anything from general health and safety to in-depth technical standards.
Our work really does cover the breadth of the industry. In recent times we have delivered successful campaign programmes on several key areas of intent to the industry, including:
- the revised Recreational Craft Directive (RCD) – negotiating for appropriate changes and assisting members through its development and its implementation;
- the introduction of the new Large Yacht Code (LY3) – working with the Maritime & Coastguard Agency;
- an extension to the implementation of new engine emission targets, ensuring UK boatbuilders have the time they need to comply with these new rules – working with international partners at IMO.
But when one campaign ends, another one begins. We are working on issues that affect companies throughout the marine supply chain, right now.
We invite British Marine members to get individually involved in our work, to ensure our industry's subject matter experts have a voice and assist us in shaping the technical standards of the future. Log in to see more content on this page describing our current work and how to find out more.
If you have yet to experience these benefits but want to ensure your business is fairly represented and consulted with on changes that may affect your future, Join British Marine.
