NKK(Netherlands)BV - Approvals

Approvals

According to the Marine Equipment Directive each notified body shall publish information on Conformity Assessments carried out. Accordingly "Approvals" may they have passed or failed. Previously we published this data on our own website. Considering however that we have to report the results of our "Approvals" to Balance Bremen, who publish our data on their MarED website, it was decided to discontinue publishing the conformity assessment data on our new website. This decision was mainly based on the following reasons:
- To avoid maintaining two separate datasets, with possible erorrs between the two datasets;
- To allow customers full and up to date access to their data, as the MarED website allows search functions and faster data access.
A further advantage to the customers/ manufacturers is that the dataset is now updated monthly whereas previously updating our own website took sometimes several months.

The data can be accessed on the website indicated below:
