'Wheelmark' for Kelvin Hughes

From 1st May 1999, KELVIN HUGHES' electronic marine equipment, where applicable, have been displaying the new Mark of Conformity - The Wheelmark - symbolised by a ship's steering wheel. This is to conform with the EU Marine Equipment Directive (96/98/EC) which states that it is mandatory for SOLAS vessels registered in an EU country, Norway or Iceland to have all marine equipment approved to this standard.

KELVIN HUGHES' Nucleus2 radar systems - the 6000 and 5000 series - are manufactured to the Wheelmark standard and are suitable for installation on ships destined for any of the countries where the legislation applies. This new standard incorporates type testing, product quality assurance, the CE (Conformité Européen) label and TKZulV (telecommunications approval ordinance). However, equipment that currently displays the CE standard, is not automatically awarded the Wheelmark. Manufacturers have to apply for the Wheelmark and meet stringent requirements, including ISO 9000, in order to gain the Mark of Conformity. The Mark of Conformity means that type approval by both flag state and class society is combined into one certification scheme. The approval mark on an equipment unit and separate components will consist of : Mark of conformity - Wheelmark symbol, Identification number of notified body, Year Mark of Conformity is awarded.

Marine equipment not manufactured in a member country requires a representative e.g. agent or distributor, resident in an EU member country to file the application on behalf of the producer and act as the certificate holder.
