In the 1950s, recreation and entertainment activities such as yachts began in Europe, and a large number of new industries such as shipyard and related accessories manufacturers, repair shops and clubs appeared in Holland and other places. However, due to the backward restriction of natural conditions and relevant laws and regulations, how to regulate the management of entertainment vessels and supervise their safety and production quality is still a little-known field. In the early 1970s, Frank Hoekstra, who owns a shipyard and a ship repair shop, began to focus on the research of yachts and a wide range of recreational ship technologies. In 1979, he established the Dutch Certification Institute (DCI) in the Netherlands to carry out the academic technical research on the construction structure, components and materials of related ships, and explore the quality standards and technical safety standards related to yachts. With the establishment of the European Union and the formulation of "EU Harmonized Standards" and relevant directives under the framework of "single market", DCI's achievements in the fields of entertainment ships, machinery and materials, as well as in the field of water safety, are rapidly transformed into operable standards or methods, providing strong support for the development and progress of the industry.
DCI's enthusiasm and professional pioneering spirit made it the first CE entertainment vessel certification agency in the Netherlands to obtain the European Union's announcement after the European Union's mandatory CE recreation craft was issued and implemented in 1998. Since then, DCI has obtained many recognized qualifications and authorizations in the field of entertainment ships in Asia, North America and Europe, and has continuously provided manufacturers, traders and various customers around the world with relevant entertainment ship certification services, as well as product certification services for relevant parts or equipment.
