Through Shipping Notice 136, the MSD reminds all concerned of the implementation of Directive 2014/90/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council on marine equipment and repealing Council Directive 96/98/EC (hereinafter referred to as “the MED”). The MED applies to equipment placed or to be placed on board a Maltese ship and for which the approval of the Directorate is required by international instruments, regardless of whether the ship is situated in the European Union at the time when it is fitted with the equipment.

For more information, ship owners and other relevant persons can access MS Notice 136 here.
