Last week the Brazilian Association of Technical Standards (ABNT) hosted the first meeting to review the current rules and regulations for recreational boats in composite materials, at the request of Brazilian Boatbuilders Association (ACOBAR).

Approximately 180 technical representatives and over 60 professionals involved in the segment of construction of small craft were invited for this first meeting where the Vice President of ACOBAR, Mr. Jorge Nasseh, was elected chair of the board and coordinator of the new standards which will take one year to be finished. “Although the deadline is relatively tight we have a well prepared staff to meet this goal.” said Mr. Nasseh.

The first standard edition of NBR-14574 – Rules and Regulation for Recreational Boats in Composites with less than 24 meters was developed 10 years ago, under the management of Mr. Jorge Nasseh. The new proposal will now include industry conformity standards for boat measurement and weight, owner/operators manual and hull identification number. On top of the new divisions the upcoming edition will have a full coverage of composite construction and internal arrangements.

The new ACOBAR project has the support of the largest local builders and it will create performance objectives that contribute to small boat safety.
