RSG Guidelines

The Recreational Craft Sectoral Group (RSG) has been established to assist in the uniform application and interpretation of the actual version of the Recreational Craft Directive 2013-53-EU (RCD).

The composition of RSG comprises the following parties:

  • Notified Bodies
  • EU Commission
  • Recreational Craft Industry
  • User Organisations
  • European Standardisation Bodies

The objectives of co-operation within the RSG

  • to share experience and exchange views on the application of the conformity assessment procedures with the aim of contributing to a uniform understanding and application of requirements and procedures;
  • to elaborate opinions from a technical point of view on matters of conformity assessment procedures by seeking a consensus;
  • to give advice to the EU Commission following its request on subjects related to the application of the RCD;
  • to consider aspects of ethics related to Notified Body activities and to elaborate, if necessary, statements on that topic;
  • to remain in coherence with standardisation work at European and international level;
  • to remain informed of harmonisation activities at European level.

The RSG Guidelines are prepared to assist Market Surveillance Authorities, Notified Bodies and Industry.
