This rulemaking project will: Incorporate new industry standards into Coast Guard approval requirements, improve PFD marking/labeling requirements, remove "Type codes" from Coast Guard approval and carriage requirements, harmonize U.S. PFD approvals with Canada, and clarify carriage requirements for recreational vessels.
