​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Welcome to the EU RO Mutual Recognition Group's Website


The EU RO MR Group is made up of 12 Class Societies  with EU Recognised Organisation (EU RO) status​, working together to implement Article 10.1 of Regulation (EC) No. 391/2009.


Article 10.1 requires all classification societies with EU RO status​ to consult with each other periodically with a view to:


  • maintaining equivalence and aiming for harmonisation of their rules and procedures; and
  • agree on the technical and procedural conditions under which they will mutually recognise class certificates for materials, equipment and components (referred to as products), taking the most demanding and rigorous standard as the reference. 

In light of this, the EU RO MR Group has developed and agreed on a sustainable common understanding of the Article 10.1 (also known as the Mutual Recognition clause), have established a framework for consultation, and can now offer mutual recognition for selected products certified under type approval.​
