ICOMIA updates its Global Conformity Guidelines on the differences between ABYC and ISO boatbuilding standards

Published on: 06 May 2023


Guidelines on the differences between ISO and ABYC standards

To support boat builders regulatory compliance when placing products on both the EU/UK and US markets, the meaningful differences within the ISO and ABYC Standards have been tabulated and published as the ICOMIA Global Conformity Guidelines. These have proved to be invaluable for boat builders attaining conformity in the USA and European markets.    

During 2022 and early 2023, all nine existing topics have been reviewed and the additional requirements amended to include the latest editions of both standards. This work was sponsored by NMMA, ABYC, British Marine, Finnboat and IMCI. 

(1.) Fuel Systems Ed 6.  

(2.) LPG Systems Ed 5.  

(3.) Electrical Systems Ed 5.  

(4.) Windows, Portlights & Hatches Ed 3. 

(5.) Powering Ed 4.  

(6.) Man Overboard Prevention Ed 3.  

(7.) Capacity Label Ed 4.  

(8.) Ventilation Ed 3.  

(9.) Field of Vision Ed 3.
