Re: “New” requirement for NZ Cat 1 certification

The European Community’s Recreational Craft Directive (RCD) of 1988 introduced an ISO standard for through-hull fittings stating they should be corrosion-resistant for a service life of just five years.

It does not say that

The iso standards says that through hull fittings must show no deterioration for a Minimum period of 5 years .

It does not require seacocks just to last 5 years or to be replaced after 5 years

Clearly a seacock showing no deterioration after 5 years does not need to be replaced at 5 years

Sadly the fact that iso standards are relatively expensive means few people outside boat builders and suppliers actually read them, most people are relying on hearsay

The standard iso 9093 has been updated several times since its original release
