​Esta modificación de la norma UNE-EN ISO 15085:2003/A2:2018 standard supplements the UNE-EN 15085:2003 standard in chapter 16 where it defines on board re-embarkation methods in a much more comprehensive way. Both are intended to help comply with Recreational Craft Directive 2013/53/EC. This modification defines the obligations that must be fulfilled; at least one of the following is compulsory:

  • Rigid boarding ladders
  • Flexible boarding ladders
  • Other specific devices, such as
  • A boat design allowing re-embarkation from the water without using a specific device.

Likewise, the test methods to be used to verify that these re-embarking methods are reliable and safe are also defined.
