The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) published a list of amendments to the designated standards list for the Recreational Craft Regulations 2017 (S.I. 2017/737). These standards will be designated from 18 November 2021 with the previous versions losing their designation on 27 February 2023. 


Annex I – Part 1 of the document that BEIS has published, lists all of the standards which have now been designated as of the date of the notice that BEIS published on 18 November 2021. These designated standards are:

  • EN ISO 7840:2021 – Small craft – Fire-resistant fuel hoses

  • EN ISO 16147:2021 – Inboard diesel engines – Engine-mounted fuel, oil and electrical components
  • EN ISO 23411:2021 – Small craft – Steering wheels

Part 2 of Annex I shows the full list of designated standards for the purpose of S.I. 2017/737. 


Further down the document in Annex II – Part 1 shows a list of standards which will now become undesignated as of 27 February 2023. The standards which will no longer be designated and subsequently be coming out of publication (as per the date in bold) are:

  • EN ISO 7840:2018 – Small craft – Fire-resistant fuel hoses (ISO 7840:2013)

British Marine suggests that you take the time to look over the newly published standards as well as the full list of designated standards. We also suggest you look over the standards which will be coming out of designation, as from the date of the BEIS notice (18 November 2021), these standards are due to be removed from publication on 27 February 2023.

British Marine will be publishing its quarterly Technical Report (TR 129) imminently and we suggest that members keep an eye out for when it is published, as this will go through all of the designated standards, standards which are being worked on and other standards which are not designated, along with a whole host of other topics which will be beneficial for you to read.


In March 2022, British Marine will be hosting a Recreational Craft Regulations Awareness course, designed to increase and expand your knowledge of how to meet the requirements of the post Brexit Recreational Craft Regulations, and assist your ability to manufacture, import and sell legally compliant products.
