DHS/USCG RIN: 1625-AC41 Publication ID: Fall 2021 
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, 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 recordkeeping and inspection requirements as they apply to recreational vessels. It will also move recreational vessel fire extinguishing equipment requirements from 46 CFR subpart 25.30, to 33 CFR, Chapter 1, subchapter S, where other recreational vessel safety rules are already located.  This project would promote economic relief by making it easier and less costly for recreational vessel owners to maintain the fire protection equipment on their vessels.
