Public consultation document on the draft Conformity Assessment of Marine Equipment (Amendment) Reg

A number of amendments to the international conventions and
applicable testing standards have entered into force since the adoption of the
last amending act to Directive 96/98/EC. Consequently, those amendments were
incorporated into Directive 96/98/EC.

Therefore these amendments need to be transposed into
Maltese regulations and this will be done through the proposed Conformity
Assessment of Marine Equipment (Amendment) Regulations, 2014.

Marine Equipment includes items such as life-saving
products (lifebuoys, lifejackets, liferafts), fire protection equipment,
navigation equipment and radio communication equipment. The legal amendments
are highly technical in nature and relate to the testing procedures of the
products. Importers are advised to ensure marine equipment they import in Malta
comply with the latest regulations.

Kindly send your comments and feedback on the
amendments by Friday, 2nd May 2014 to the
Regulatory Affairs Directorate, Technical Regulations Division, Malta
Competition and Consumer Affairs Authority by e-mailing
