Lonseal Marine Flooring Is Now USCG Certified

The requirements for U.S. Coast Guard for U.S. Waters are defined in the Code of Regulations, Title 46 CFR, Part 164 and further clarified in Navigation and Vessel Inspection Circular No. 9-97 (NVIC 9-97).  

Lonseal marine flooring was tested per IMO FTP Code 2010 Parts 2 and 5 to ensure it meets requirements for smoke, toxicity, and flammability.  Lonseal’s Notification Body, NKK (Netherlands), then certified that the flooring met the requirements of MED 2014/90/EU Modules B and D.  The USCG approval was obtained through the Mutual Recognition Act (MRA) of 2004.  

So what does this mean?  Commercial vessels, such as cruise ships and passenger ferries, are required by law to be inspected by the USCG.  If the vessel passes inspection, a certificate of inspection will be posted where it can be seen by passengers.  To meet these standards, required equipment must be U.S. Coast Guard “approved” or “certified”, meaning that it meets U.S. Coast Guard specifications, standards, and regulations for performance, construction, or materials.  Lonseal marine flooring meets the standards required by the USCG and was issued a certification on the following marine flooring products:
