Welcome to the
United States Coast Guard
Approved Equipment Listing Database.
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

or harm resulting from the use of information contained in this database, or
