Designated standards for Recreation Craft Regulations updated by BEIS

The Department of Business Energy and Industrial strategy (BEIS) has published its amendments to the list of designated standards (the ISO standards which, if followed, give an automatic presumption of conformity). The notice is split into two annexes. Annex one has two parts. Part one shows the new standards which are now being designated (and part two gives the full list of all designated standards).

The new standards being designated for Recreation Craft Regulations are as follows:

EN ISO 8847:2021 Small craft – Steering gear – Cable over pulley systems
EN ISO 8849:2021 Small craft – Electrically operated bilge pumps
EN ISO 14946:2021 Small craft – Maximum load capacity
EN ISO 8099-2:2021 Small craft – Waste systems – Part 2: Sewage treatment systems
EN ISO 14945:2021 Small craft – Builder’s plate

Annex 2 of the notice gives the dates that standards will have their designation removed i.e. you will no longer be able to use that particular revision of the standard for automatic presumption of conformity. Again this annex is split into two parts with part one listing new entries with a removal date and part two with the full list dates of standards being removed. Part one includes the following new entries:

EN ISO 8849:2018 Small craft – Electrically operated direct-current bilge pumps (ISO 8849:2003) – Removal on the 9 June 2022
EN ISO 14946:2001 Small craft – Maximum load capacity EN ISO 14946:2001/AC:2005 – Removal on the 9 June 2022
EN ISO 8847:2017 Small craft – Steering gear – Cable over pulley systems – Removal on the 10 September 2023
