Coast Guard September 13, 2011 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Inflatable Personal Flotation Devices
Document Number: 2011-23271
Type: Rule
Date: 2011-09-13
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard is withdrawing its direct final rule published on March 30, 2011. The direct final rule notified the public of the Coast Guard's intent to harmonize structural and performance standards for inflatable recreational personal flotation devices (PFDs) with current voluntary industry consensus standards, and to slightly modify regulatory text in anticipation of a future rulemaking addressing the population for which inflatable recreational PFDs are approved. The Coast Guard is withdrawing that rule because we received an adverse comment. That rule will not become effective as scheduled. Instead, the Coast Guard plans to consider these issues in a notice of proposed rulemaking.
