CIN checker

To facilitate easy identification of all PWCs imported into the EU by the authorised representatives since January 2006, an on-line Craft Identification Number (CIN) checking system has been developed, which is available to market surveillance authorities across Europe.

The database contains up-to-date information on Recreational Craft Directive compliant craft imported by the authorised representatives. The database can be accessed at

The website is available in German, English, Spanish, French and Italian. Details of this website maybe passed to all market surveillance offices in member states and they are encouraged to use it.
