Marine Electronics Directive

The Marine Electronics Directive (MED) is a set of regulations established by the European Union (EU) for marine electronics equipment.

The purpose of the MED is to ensure that marine electronic equipment used in EU waters meets certain minimum safety and performance standards, as well as to promote compatibility between different types of equipment.

The Marine Electronics directive applies to a wide range of equipment, including navigation equipment, communication equipment, and monitoring and control systems.

The MED requires that equipment must be CE-marked, indicating that it has been certified to meet the requirements of the directive, before it can be placed on the market in the EU.

The MED is enforced by national governments, who are responsible for ensuring that marine electronic equipment installed on vessels flying their flag meet the requirements of the directive.
