NMMA Boat & Yacht Certification helps manufacturers ensure their boats are built to applicable standards set by the American Boats & Yacht Council (ABYC), and to promote their compliance to the public.
Participating boat manufacturers must submit applications for all models; each model must be physically inspected by an NMMA inspector annually. To achieve Certification, a manufacturer must demonstrate that all variances found during the inspection have been corrected. The manufacturer is responsible for ensuring that all production units are manufactured in compliance with the certified design.
Program participants must certify all recreational models (except racing craft) marketed in the U.S.A. for non-commercial use.
The annual requirements for NMMA Certification are outlined in the certification agreement and published policies/documents. The standards used each model year are outlined within the Standards Basis.Source: nmma.org
