As of September 22, 2014, a final rule was issued by the U.S. Coast Guard to remove PFD Type codes in federal regulations.

Over time, the terminology of Type I, II, III, IV and V will no longer appear on lifejacket labels and in literature. Once the new standard wording or icons for lifejackets are finalized, instructors and clubs will then need to share this updated information with the public.
