EXPORT TO EUROPE AND CE CERTIFICATION

Robert Christopher Yacht Sales image
CE Certification is a certification process required for vessels imported into 16 European countries along with some other international destinations. Many new vessels built after 1998 meet these standards and comply. However, there is a difference between

Compliance and Certification.

Most manufacturers do not CE certify vessels that are not designated for export. In addition, there are no known sources for CE Certification in the US before a boat is exported. Certification must usually be accomplished once a vessel arrives at its port of entry. Usually, it will not be released from customs until after certification, although in some cases it may be bonded out until certification. In Miami there is a company that can arrange certification once the boat arrives in the destination county. However, most times it is better for the buyer to find their own sources. Even so, if the buyer insists, the broker can contact the company at 754-265-3160. The fee is approximately $1000. The cost of certification is completely at the buyer’s expense.
You can find more info by reviewing the International Marine Certification Institute’s steps for attaining CE Certification in order to import it into a European country. You may visit IMCI to learn more about the process and their recommendations.

* Key things to remember.
* Most vessels built after 1998 in the US may comply but are not certified.
* Vessels built prior to 1998 probably do not comply. These vessels must be modified by the buyer upon entry into the European port of delivery.
* Cost for certification is completely PAID by the buyer.
* It is almost impossible to get a vessel certified in the US. *Cost Prohibative! You must do this after your import into your European Port.
