Italian Version of the RCD available on 2 October 2015 – plus a free workshop!

Regarding the EU Recreational Craft Directive, its regulations are meanwhile just around the corner: Less than 4 months and they will apply. Reason why, quote, “the European Boating Industry together with its Italian member UCINA Confindustria Nautica are happy to invite you to the workshop on the new Recreational Craft Directive 2013/53/EU. It will take place on Friday, 2 October 2015 from 14:30 to 15:30 at the International Genoa Boat Show. The event held in Italian will be a perfect opportunity to present the new legislation and the Italian translation of the EU RCD Guide will be officially unveiled there.

Developed by European Boating Industry and ICOMIA, the RCD Guide is now available in 6 languages (English, French, German, Italian, Estonian and Swedish) at the price of 3.99 EUR. More translations, such as Czech, Spanish or Polish are planned.”

Here are details about the UCINA workshop.
