Since 1998 it became law (RCD) that the manufactures must display the "CE" plate near the helm...there was no requirement before that time.
We have sold a number of Ribs into Europe over the years and we get a number of requests from them for a "pre-1998" CE plate and certificate of conformaty...?

Same here. Mine came in the post some weeks later after having pestered for it. The excuse was that they came from the main agent in Belgium.

I believe it is not a requirement on home built boats so long as they are not sold within 5 years of construction. Not sure if rigging your own boat counts for self-build?

I also had a hull ID on the transom until the pressure washer blasted it off. The other 'hidden' one fell off very early on too during the fit-out!

All I think there is on mine is a hull ID number on the transom.
I have a Hull ID number on the transom as well. Perhaps I'll contact Liverpool Powerboats who now sell Ospreys.

Is there a "hidden" one? Where do they hide it?

It's a secret! Though if you look carefully in your port transom box you might just spot it.
