New RSG guidelines published

The Recreational Craft Sectoral Group (RSG) was established to assist in the uniform application and interpretation of the Recreational Craft Directive by all Notified Bodies and other parties with valid interests.

The RSG Guidelines are prepared to assist manufacturers and Notified Bodies by clarifying and defining terms, questions and grey areas within the regulations.

The RSG guidelines are available to download from the RSG website (you are required to register) or from the British Marine website by clicking here.

Updates include references to newly harmonised standards and clarification on areas such as:

  • Electric propulsion systems and the use of ISO 16315:2016 Small craft Electric Propulsion
  • Positioning of pump-out connections
  • Fire Extinguishing systems for electrically propelled vessels.
