CONSOLIDATED NORTH AMERICAN STANDARD FOR WEARABLE PFDS

The information posted here is regarding the status of an active US Coast Guard-Transport Canada-industry project and is not to be considered new policy or new requirements.  The intent is solely to provide progress updates to a project supported by the US Coast Guard and Transport Canada to develop a single Consolidated North American Standard for lifejackets/PFDs.  On 6 September 2007, the Coast Guard attended a meeting hosted by the PFD Manufacturers Association (PFDMA) in Burlington, Vermont in support of US-Canadian cooperation toward the development of a harmonized standard for lifejackets/PFDs.  The meeting resulted in a plan as outlined in the documents here.  These documents are considered to be works-in-progress and may be revised as necessary to reflect changes.  Comments may be directed as noted within the documents.
