The Directorate reminds all concerned 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. The MED has been transposed into Maltese legislation through the Merchant Shipping (Marine Equipment) Regulations (S.L.234.40).
