If you are a boat builder, you’re aware of how important compliance with recognised standards bodies is in regard to certification and liability.

The American Boat and Yacht Council (ABYC) standard for navigation lamps is based on IMO COLREG 72 and is updated from time to time. The latest update is ABYC C-5 and specifies more stringent optical performance than the requirements of ABYC A-16 which it replaces.
