The Marine Equipment Directive (MED) covers safety related products, including navigation lights, used on ships that are registered under the flags of EU and EFTA states, and which relate to Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS). The complete range of Lopolight LED Navigation lights are approved to MED, thus proudly displaying the “Wheelmark”.
Each product is covered by 2 certificates: a Module B certificate that is the equivalent to a product type-approval and a Module D certificate – that is the approval to produce the type approved product. Only with both certificates properly maintained can the “Wheelmark” be used.
It is appropriate to note that the MED approval system is ‘world-class’ especially due to the strong demands that the underlying standard EN14744 puts on LED navigation light products.
