What happens if an item of equipment listed in MSN 1734 (as amended) is replaced in a hurry at a port outside the EU and it has no mark of conformity?

If there is an agreement between the EC and the port State where the replacement equipment is supplied on the mutual recognition of such organisations, the item must be supplied with documentation issued by a recognised organisation equivalent to one of the EC Notified Bodies. Where there is no such agreement, the equipment must be supplied with documentation issued by an IMO member State certifying that it complies with the relevant international standard.
