GM (MED+DNV)

We are pleased to announce that the following models of General Monitors Gas and Flame Detectors meet the Marine Equipment Directive (MED) for DNV‘s Offshore Standards.

The MED is a European Directive that requires certain products installed in marine environments be marked with the “wheel mark”, indicating that the products have been tested towards specific standards that deem them safe and certified for use in marine applications/environments.

Although MED is globally recognized, some countries may not accept it.

To truly cover the needs of their global customers, General Monitors have also obtained Type Approval for these products. The following GM products are DNV·GL Type Approved:

DNV·GL is the world’s leading ship and offshore classification society, the leading technical advisor to the global oil and gas industry and a leading expert for the energy value chain including renewable and energy efficiency. They are one of the top three certification bodies in the world.

MED and DNV·GL approval assures General Monitors’ customers that their Gas and Flame Detectors have been independently tested and found to meet the highest industry standards while supporting the values of safeguarding life, property and the environment. 

Copies of the certificates are available on requsest.
