It should be ensured that the Community vessel certificate and the vessel certificate delivered in accordance with the Rhine Vessel Inspection Regulation are issued on the basis of technical requirements which guarantee an equivalent level of safety.

(3)

In order to avoid distortions of competition as well as different levels of safety, the amendments to Directive 2006/87/EC must be implemented as quickly as possible.

(4)

The measures provided for in this Directive are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee referred to in Article 7 of Council Directive 91/672/EEC of 16 December 1991 on the reciprocal recognition of national boatmasters’ certificates for the carriage of goods and passengers by inland waterway (2),

HAS ADOPTED THIS DIRECTIVE:
