Intermarine Electronics proudly announces that the wheelmark type approval certificates has been issued for IME 300 BNWAS system.
The wheelmark is affixed to products in compliance with the Marine Equipment Directive consisting of a ships wheel together with the identification number of the associated Notified Body together with the last 2 digits of the year of manufacture.
The Marine Equipment Directive 96/98 EN came into force on January 1st 1999 and covers a range of equipment carried on board ships registered under the flags of the European Union Member States. It was established to ensure that equipment which must comply with the requirements of international conventions (e.g. SOLAS) agreed by the International Maritime Organization also meets common standards of safety and performance across the EU. Approval requirements are also harmonized which ensures certificates issued in one Member State are accepted by all States across the EU. The Directive applies to all ‘Community Registered Ships’ and is mandatory from January 1, 2001.
