CE-Pro is a suite of software that creates all the documentation required by BOTH the:
- UK Recreational Craft Regulations 2017 (RCR)
- EU Recreational Craft Directive (RCD)
It will compile your:
- Technical File (including stability & structural calculations)
- Owner’s Manual
- Declaration of Conformity
The sofware comes in two different versions and now with the option of ABYC or ISO standards.
The original CE-Pro software provides checklists for all applicable standards, filtered just for your boat so that you can document compliance with every clause of every standard without having to waste time reading sections that are not applicable.
It will do structural calculation to ISO 12215-5:2008 (The calculator for the 2019 edition will be available very soon).
CE-Pro will do all the stability calculations for all parts of ISO 12217.
CE-Pro will also generate a compliant Owner’s Manual and Declaration of Conformity, both of them in most EU languages, in just a few clicks of a button – customised for you boat.
It also includes a Project Management tool, pages for evidence of compliance for components and a list of EVERY label required for your boat.
CE-ProDUCTION is the regular CE-Pro package but with 2 significant additions.
Manufacturers have build procedures, whether they are written-down or not does not matter. The way a valve is fitted to the hull or the way electrical conductors are connected are done the same way throughout the production line. CE-ProDUCTION allows the user to save their ‘standard build practices’ into a library so that they can be called into a Technical File.
Firstly, this saves the user having to write all the answers to all the cells for each file. This makes a huge time saving. Secondly, if the same answers can be used time and time again, the user can invest the time to give a fuller description of the details to prove compliance. This means that the Technical File becomes a more powerful document that reduces the manufacturer’s liability.
But it also means that the manufactuer now has a Technical File that links the standard build practices to the legislation: useful for the design and production teams when making decision about changes.
Perhaps a manufacturer has someone who has a need to conuslt the Technical File but only a part of it. Maybe a quality inspector need to inspect the bilge and black water systems today. Filters allow the user to select only portions of a file for output to a that user with a specific need. This gives them a concise but fully detailed dossier for what they need to see and no more.
