General updates

In the marine sector, we are a EU Recognized Organization (RO) and were required to be sponsored by a EU member State (for the purposes of ensuring compliance with Regulation (EC) No 391/2009, Article 8, previously gained this sponsorship through the United Kingdom.

The amendments to the Regulation 391/2009 to remove the need for a sponsoring State entered into force on 28 March 2019.
