I haven't been able to find the entire document only some changes, this looks like a standard that will drive up prices for water rescue teams and have no bearing on our safety. I know Mustang Survival is trying to inject some common sense into this standard. If you have some insite please comment.
This looks like a potential mess for already financially strapped teams.
Is this what you're looking for? You have to do some serious scrolling through it to find specifics.
Anyone know of ANY equipment that is 1952 approved? The standard is 2 years old now and I haven't been able to find anything. Also anyone know any specifics about the "recertification" process. It reads like they want the manufacturer or a 3rd party to inspect gear annually (for most tests) Does anyone know any more?
