The NMMA Trailer Certification Program was developed to help boat trailer manufacturers comply with established industry standards and federal safety regulations and to help to inform the public of such compliance when purchasing equipment. The NMMA program certifies that the design of the trailer meets the standards outlined in the NMMA Trailer Certification Handbook. The manufacturer has the responsibility of assuring that their production units are manufactured in compliance with the certified design.

Trailers are certified in the areas of identification plates, capacity ratings, couplings, safety chains, lighting, winches, brakes, registration procedures, and conspicuity systems.? A manufacturer participating in this program must certify all models as fitted with all factory supplied equipment on a model year basis.? Inspectors from nationally recognized independent inspection agencies or NMMA staff visit the manufacturer and physically inspect each trailer model for compliance to all certification standards.? For more information on the NMMA certified trailers, please visit

The National Marine Manufacturers Association?s Trailer Manufacturers Association (TMA) is an affiliate program comprised of trailer and trailer component manufacturers who are committed to industry promotion and use of the latest technical and safety standards. With an estimated 80% of boats in the U.S. being trailered to their destinations, boat trailers play a crucial role in making boating more affordable, and the nation's waterways more accessible. TMA members are actively engaged in promoting safe trailering, producing consumer literature, owners manuals and related labels. TMA addresses technical standards and regulatory issues for boat trailers through NMMA's Trailer Certification Committee and through active involvement with other agencies and organizations involved in trailer safety at both the state and national level.
