This draft Order primarily implements two directives, one of which is Directive (EU) 2017/2108. In addition, the proposed Order contains technical requirements on passenger ships of less than 24 metres that Directive (EU) 2017/2108 exempts from the scope of Directive 2009/45/EC on safety rules and standards for passenger ships.

Article I, Part Q, of the draft Order, in conjunction with Annex I to the draft Order, contains technical requirements on passenger ships of less than 24 metres. The other provisions of the draft order do not contain any technical provisions that require notification.
