DHS/USCG RIN: 1625-AC41 Publication ID: Fall 2019 
Title: Fire Protection Equipment for Recreational Boats 

The Coast Guard’s final rule Harmonization of Standards for Fire Protection, Detection, and Extinguishing Equipment, published on July 22, 2016, mistakenly applied certain requirements contained in the National Fire Protection Association Standard for Portable Fire Extinguishers (NFPA 10) to all recreational vessels. This rulemaking will remove the NFPA 10’s recordkeeping and inspection requirements as they apply to recreational vessels. It will also move recreational vessel fire safety requirements from 46 CFR subchapter C, which is a commercial subchapter, to 33 CFR subchapter S, where other recreational vessel safety rules are already located.
