Propulsion control and steering systems shall be designed constructed and installed in such a way as to ensure the transmission of steering forces under foreseeable operating conditions and adequate functional reliability.
For marking as a component, different configurations shall be considered as follows:
Please note: UNI EN ISO 13929:2003 standard “Rudder coupling– gear drive systems “ has been officially removed from the list of harmonised standards referred to in Directive 2013/53/EU
Each individual device, part of the component “system of remote steering” for which declaration of conformity is to be provided with an indication of the harmonised reference standards, in which the required and carried out tests are reported , must be CE marked if placed on the market separately.
In some cases, for the acceptance of the steering system, they must pass the required tests to be carried out after assembly and complete installation of all devices.
