Title: Survival Craft Equipment--Update to Type Approval Requirements  

This regulatory action will remove the type approval requirements for certain survival equipment that survival craft and rescue boats are required to carry on U.S.-flagged vessels. The Coast Guard will propose that for some equipment the manufacturer self-certify that the equipment meets a consensus standard, and for other equipment that the manufacturer self-certify that the equipment meets updated regulatory requirements. The proposed rule would also eliminate the unique requirements for lifeboat equipment on sailing school vessels. Updating type approval requirements for survival craft equipment would reduce the financial and paperwork burden on equipment manufacturers, vessel owners and operators, and the Coast Guard.
