Approved Equipment Listing

This database contains searchable listings of equipment and materials approved or certified by the US Coast Guard for use on commercial vessels and recreational boats.  

Not all Coast Guard approvals are listed in this database. For some categories of equipment and materials, Coast Guard approvals may be issued by European "Notified Bodies" under Mutual Recognition Agreements (MRAs) with the European Community (EC) and European Economic Area/European Free Trade Association (EEA/EFTA). These approvals are not listed in this database, but may be found instead at the European Marine Equipment Directive website http://www.mared.org. Similarly, European "wheelmark" approvals issued by the Coast Guard under the MRAs are listed in this database as indicated by the "wheelmark" symbol. For additional information on the MRAs, and the product categories covered under them, see the Coast Guard's Lifesaving and Fire Safety Division website at http://www.uscg.mil/hq/cg5/cg5214/mra.asp.


The U.S. Coast Guard and the United States are not liable for any loss, damage, or harm resulting from the use of information contained in this database, or for any reliance on its accuracy, completeness, or timeliness.
