Recreational Vessel Regulations Published

The long awaited regulations implementing the ARRA changes in the Longshore act from Feb 2009, were finally published Friday, Dec 30th 2011.

The full text of the history and rule can be found at http://www.federalregister.gov/articles/2011/12/30/2011-32880/regulations-implementing-the-longshore-and-harbor-workers-compensation-act-recreational-vessels

The history and discussion is interesting, but you need to run down over ¾ of the way down the document, just under the section titled “AUTHORITY” for the actual revisions .

I am sure there will be much more comment, but this rule will take effect Jan 30th 2012.
