DHS/USCG RIN: 1625-AB46 Publication ID: 2012 
Title: Lifesaving Equipment, Production Testing, and Harmonization With International Standards 
Abstract: The Coast Guard amended its regulations for certain lifesaving equipment, including launching appliances (winches and davits), release mechanisms, survival craft (lifeboats, inflatable life rafts, and inflatable buoyant apparatuses), rescue boats, and automatic disengaging devices. The currently effective rule harmonizes the Coast Guard's design, construction, and performance standards for this lifesaving equipment with international standards. In addition, the rule provides for the use of qualified independent laboratories, instead of Coast Guard inspectors, during the approval process and for production inspections of certain types of lifesaving equipment. The Coast Guard additionally updated the lifesaving equipment regulations for inflatable life rafts and inflatable buoyant apparatuses to harmonize Coast Guard regulations with recently adopted international standards affecting assumed occupant weight. The Coast Guard proposes to further amend the lifesaving equipment regulations for release mechanisms to harmonize Coast Guard regulations with recently adopted international standards affecting construction materials.
