DHS/USCG RIN: 1625-AC02 Publication ID: Spring 2014 
Title: Personal Flotation Devices Labeling and Standards 
Abstract: The rulemaking would remove references to type codes in Coast Guard regulations on the carriage and labeling of Coast Guard-approved personal flotation devices (PFDs). PFD type codes are unique to Coast Guard approval and are not well understood by the public. Removing these type codes from our regulations would facilitate future incorporation by reference of new industry consensus standards for PFD labeling that will more effectively convey safety information, and is a step toward harmonization of our regulations with PFD requirements in Canada and in other countries.
