COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING REGULATION (EU) 2023/1667

of 8 August 2023

laying down rules for the application of Directive 2014/90/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council, as regards design, construction and performance requirements and testing standards for marine equipment and repealing Implementing Regulation (EU) 2022/1157

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Directive 2014/90/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 July 2014 on marine equipment and repealing Council Directive 96/98/EC (1), and in particular Article 35(2) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

The design, construction and performance requirements and testing standards in respect of marine equipment falling within the scope of Directive 2014/90/EU are provided for in international instruments, defined in Article 2(5) of that Directive.

(2)

In order to take into account the most recent changes to international instruments, the list of the applicable international instruments should be updated and marine equipment which has become subject to harmonised Union requirements pursuant to Directive 2014/90/EU following those changes, should be explicitly listed.

(3)

Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2022/1157 (2) should therefore be repealed.

(4)

It is reasonable and proportionate to allow a transitional period during which a new item of marine equipment which is in conformity with the national requirements for type-approval in force in a Member State before the entry into force of this Regulation, can continue to be placed on the market and on board an EU ship, as defined in Article 2(2) of Directive 2014/90/EU.

(5)

In order to facilitate a harmonised, rapid and simple implementation of Directive 2014/90/EU, implementing acts adopted pursuant to that Directive should take the form of Implementing Regulations, in accordance with Article 35(5) of that Directive.

(6)

In order to allow the marine equipment industry and other stakeholders to adapt to the measures provided for in this Regulation, this Regulation should enter into force 40 days following its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

(7)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee on Safe Seas and the Prevention of Pollution from Ships established by Regulation (EC) No 2099/2002 of the European Parliament and of the Council (3),

HAS ADOPTED THIS REGULATION:

Article 1

The design, construction and performance requirements and the testing standards provided for in the international instruments, defined in Article 2(5) of Directive 2014/90/EU, shall apply to each item of marine equipment listed in the Annex to this Regulation.

Article 2

Implementing Regulation (EU) 2022/1157 is repealed.

Article 3

1.   Marine equipment listed as a ‘new item inserted by Implementing Regulation (EU) 2021/1158’ in column 1 of the Annex, which is in compliance with the national requirements for type-approval in force before 25 August 2021 in a Member State, may continue to be placed on the market and on board an EU ship until 25 August 2024.

2.   Marine equipment listed as a ‘new item inserted by Implementing Regulation (EU) 2022/1157’ in column 1 of the Annex, which is in compliance with the national requirements for type-approval in force before 15 August 2022 in a Member State, may continue to be placed on the market and on board an EU ship until 15 August 2025.

Article 4

This Regulation shall enter into force on the fortieth day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union.

This Regulation shall be binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States.

Done at Brussels, 8 August 2023.

Notes applicable to this Annex

(a)

General: in addition to the testing standards specifically referred to in this Annex, type-examination (type approval) requires compliance with the applicable requirements of the international conventions and the relevant resolutions and circulars of the IMO. Such compliance is referred to in the modules for conformity assessment set out in Annex II to Directive 2014/90/EU.

(b)

Column 3: where two sets of testing standards are separated by ‘or’, each set fulfils all the testing requirements to meet IMO Performance Standards. Therefore testing in accordance with one of those sets is sufficient to demonstrate compliance with the requirements of the relevant international instruments. On the contrary, when other separators (such as comma) are used all the listed references apply.

(c)

Column 6: in order to take into consideration the timeframes for shipbuilding, depending on the characteristics of the specific marine equipment, the term ‘placing on board’ shall be understood as meaning one of the following, as indicated in brackets after the dates:

(i)

first installation of the equipment in its functional position on board an EU ship;

(ii)

first installation of the equipment in its functional position or stowing in its functional position on board an EU ship;

(iii)

delivery of the equipment to the shipyard if such delivery takes place within 30 months before the first installation of the equipment in its functional position.

(d)

Where there is more than one row for one marine equipment item entry (for example, MED/1.3), the lowest row contains the updated requirements of the international instruments in respect to the ones set out on the upper row or rows.

(e)

In the situations referred to in point (d) where columns 5 and 6 contain no date, that indicates that there has been no change in the testing standards and that the marine equipment item concerned must comply with the requirements indicated in the (second) lower row.
