Nordic Boat Standard (NBS)

 

​In 1975, a voluntary Nordic Boat Standard (NBS) was adopted in the Nordic countries. The standard included rules for both recreational craft and work boats. The EU's Recreational Craft Directive has later replaced this standard. 

The work boat code of the NBS has been further developed in cooperation with TraFi. Today, it is known as the Finnish Transport Safety Agency's Work Boat Guidelines.

As an accredited Notified Body (NB No. 0537), VTT Expert Services Ltd verifies the compliance of boats, boat equipment and production according to the requirements of the EU Recreational Craft Directive.

Since 1982, we have carried out type inspections in accordance with the Nordic Boat Standard (NBS) on recreational craft and work boats.
