Dear valued reader, Welcome to this month's newsletter, where we are excited to share with you all about the incredible world of probiotics. As you may know, our partner company, GNC Marine, has invested a significant amount of time and resources into researching this area. In my humble opinion, probiotics are revolutionizing the way we maintain a healthy balance of microorganisms in the aquatic environments, providing a sustainable solution for the marine industry. If you haven't heard of probiotics before, they are strains of beneficial bacteria that are grown and used in various products, such as food, supplements, and even cosmetics. These bacteria have been extensively studied for their ability to improve digestive health, boost the immune system, and even alleviate symptoms of certain medical conditions. GNC Marine has been using probiotics on board ships to improve the treatment of grey and black water in the Sewage Treatment System, but they have also developed even more exciting products. For example, GNC Marine have created a totally safe acid for descaling. Its unique composition ensures that users will not suffer acid burns on their skin, making it a much safer product compared to the alternatives available. Not only is it safe to use it is also harmless to the environment. The future is here, and we can now use ingredients that have been here all along. We hope you enjoy reading about the incredible world of probiotics and their innovative applications in our industry. Sincerely, Mikkel Engsbro CEO, MariTeam Read the full newsletter here

Dear valued readers, Welcome to the March edition of our newsletter. As we move further into the year, we are reminded of the importance of staying informed on pressing issues affecting our communities. One such issue that has been making headlines is the presence of PFAS chemicals in our environment, which have been linked to a range of health problems. As many of you may know, PFAS chemicals are commonly found in firefighting foam, which has led to concerns among firefighters and other first responders. At our company, we are committed to addressing this issue head-on and our partner Dafo Fomtec AB have been working tirelessly to develop new products and solutions that can elminate exposure to these harmful forever chemicals. In our Newsletter March 2023, we are excited to introduce a new firefighter helmet that has been designed with the safety and well-being of firefighters in mind. This new helmet features state-of-the-art technology providing superior protection and comfort. We are proud to be at the forefront of this important issue and we are dedicated to continuing our efforts to create a safer and healthier environment for all.

UK Conformity Assessment Scheme for Marine Equipment: What You Need to Know The UK Maritime & Coastguard Agency (MCA) introduced regulations in 2016 to establish the UK Conformity Assessment (UKCA) procedures for marine equipment that is to be placed on board UK flagged ships. This scheme was developed to ensure that, after leaving the European Union, the UK continues to comply with the International Maritime Organization (IMO) Conventions requirement of ships carrying safety and counter-pollution equipment that has been approved by the ship's Flag Administration. Regulations Required for UK Conformity Assessment Scheme To comply with the UK Conformity Assessment Scheme, marine equipment must meet the requirements established by the following regulations: The Merchant Shipping (Marine Equipment) Regulations 2016 (2016 No. 1025) Marine Equipment - United Kingdom Conformity Assessment Procedures for Marine Equipment, Other Approval, and Standards - MERCHANT SHIPPING NOTICE - MSN 1874 (M+F) United Kingdom Conformity Assessment Procedures for Marine Equipment (M+F) - INFORMATION NOTE - MIN 590 Safety Signage Installed Onboard The Red Ensign mark of conformity established by MSN 1874 (Annex 1) includes Low-Location Lighting (LLL) components, including escape route and fire-fighting equipment location signs. This is the same scope as the Marine Equipment Directive (MED). To be certified according to the UK Maritime & Coastguard Agency, LLL components including escape route and fire-fighting equipment location signs must meet the requirements established by SOLAS 74.Reg.II-2/13, IMO Resolution A.752(18), IMO Res.MSC.98(73)-(FSS Code) 11, and ISO 15370. Practical Implications to the Market Effective January 1st, 2023, replacement or newly installed MED approved products are not accepted onboard UK flagged ships. However, already installed MED approved products can still be kept and used onboard UK flagged ships until the end of their operational life. Once a MED approved sign installed prior to January 1st, 2023, reaches the end of its operational life, it must be replaced with a UK approved sign (MCA certification). Everlux Certification Everlux, a photoluminescent shipboard safety signage manufacturer, was one of the first to initiate its efforts to become certified under the UK Maritime & Coastguard Agency Conformity Assessment Scheme back in 2021. As a result, its safety signs and low-location lighting components now feature the "Red Ensign" mark of conformity in addition to the already existing MED Wheelmark. To validate their choice for Everlux safety signage systems, shipyards and shipowners may request copies of Everlux's UK Maritime & Coastguard Agency certificates as support documentation for their commercial offers, technical specifications documentation, and onboard their vessels. In summary, the UK Conformity Assessment Scheme for marine equipment is a crucial step for UK-flagged ships to continue to comply with the International Maritime Organization's requirements for safety and counter-pollution equipment. Marine equipment must meet specific regulations to be certified, and Everlux is among the first to carry the Red Ensign mark of conformity on its products. Read more:  UK GOV: DNV-GL:
