We are committed to supporting the British Marine Industry. On a national and International level members of British Marine Technical Department represent our members on a number of key technical committees, helping to ensure their best interests are safeguarded. Alongside helping to shape the industry, British Marine is dedicated to supplying our members with up to the minute advice and technical documentation that reflects the rapidly evolving world we work in. Whether unearthing the details of an ISO standard or providing guidance to business support the Technical Department is on hand to help. To ensure you are fairly represented and are consulted on the changes that may affect your business, Join British Marine.
This work really does cover the breadth of the industry. In the last few years we have delivered successful campaigns on:
- The revised Recreational Craft Directive – helping 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 which affect companies right across the industry and throughout the marine supply chain. All of this work relies on one thing - You, the member. Without your involvement and guidance, we can’t make these strong cases and get you and your industry the outcomes or recognition you need or deserve. Further details on the current campaigns we are working on are available in this section. We would welcome your involvement, so if you have any comments or if you would like to get involved, please contact a member of the Marine House team.
