  2. 2. E Pluribus Unum Without the invaluable work of the UL Standards Technical Panel (STP) members and others stakeholders that believe we must always work to make products safer, the information being provided within this presentation would not have been possible. THANK YOU
  3. 3. Agenda • So Many Activities, So Many Lifejacket Choices • How and Why Did Labeling and Point of Sale Information Change • Understanding Lifejacket Labels • Understanding Point of Sale Information on Lifejackets (Placard)
  4. 4. So Why and How Did We Get Here
  5. 5. Prime Minister Stephen Harper and President Barack Obama created the U.S. – Canada Regulatory Cooperation Council (RCC) on February 4, 2011. On August 29, 2014, the United States and Canada released the RCC Joint Forward Plan – a pivot point for the regulatory relationship. The RCC was created to facilitate closer cooperation between both countries to develop smarter and more effective approaches to regulation to make the United States and Canadian economies stronger and more competitive, while meeting the fundamental responsibilities to protect the safety and welfare of our citizens. They recognized that regulatory differences and duplicative procedures impose unnecessary requirements and costs on our citizens, businesses and economies. There were many initiates within the RCC and one of those involved life-saving appliances. The general initiative was to draft common life jacket standards by a bi-national industry consensus body, which includes both Transport Canada (TC) and the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG). U.S. – Canada Regulatory Cooperation Council (RCC)
  6. 6. From the direction of the RCC, the STP initiated work to create North American standards to not just include construction requirements and test methods, but also marking and labeling that would be acceptable by the regulatory bodies within the U.S. and Canada so that the same product could be sold and used in both countries.
