Marine equipment refers to equipment on board of ships registered in a Member State of the European Union. This includes ships which were not in the EU at the moment of boarding.
In the European Union, Directive 2014/90/EU regulates marine equipment. Specifically, this Directive establishes design, construction, and performance requirements to apply on board of EU ships. Especially, the objectives of the legislation are to enhance safety at sea, prevent marine pollution, and ensure the free movement of marine equipment within the EU.
