EU-US Sign Marine Equipment Accord

A bit of legal/political news, but still relevant. This trade agreement will, in the end, make marine electronics cheaper and sooner available on the market. Furthermore it will make it easier for some innovative, but small equipment manufacturers to broaden their market potential.
“The EU and the U.S. signed a mutual recognition agreement on marine equipment. Under the agreement, marine equipment certified as acceptable in the market of one party will be able to circulate in the other market without additional testing or certification. The agreement covers 30 types of marine equipment, including life-saving equipment (distress signals, rigid life rafts), fire protection equipment, and navigational equipment (GPS receivers, echo-sounding equipment).”
