Certification

Certification for shipbuilding

To enable products such as fire protection equipment and life-saving appliances to be used on ships, they first have to successfully pass the EU conformity assessment procedures described in Directive 2014/90/EU. Depending on the selected module combination, as the client at the end of the procedure you will receive (for example)

  • an EC Type Examination Certificate (Module B) and
  • an EC Type Examination Certificate concerning the quality assurance of the production Process (Module D) or the product (Module E or F).


Upon obtaining both of these "certificates", you are entitled to affix the "Wheel Mark" to your product.

Scope of DMT Certification

Part of DMT GmbH & Co. KG, the certification body is a Notified Body in accordance with Section 3 of the Marine Equipment Regulations (Schiffausrüstungsverordnung - "SchAusrV"). DMT is listed under the Identification Number 2509 in "Nando" (New Approach Notified and Designated Organisations), by the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure ("BMVI"). The notification is valid for the Directive 2014/90/EU for marine equipment, such as fire safety systems and life-saving appliances.
As a certification body, DMT is therefore entitled to conduct EC conformity assessments for marine equipment for fire safety systems and life-saving appliances in accordance with Directive 2014/90/EU for Modules B, D, E and F and to issue corresponding certificates.
We can be your one-stop source for the inspection and certification of your products.
