The American Boat & Yacht Council (ABYC), the nonprofit organization that develops the global voluntary safety standards for the design, construction, maintenance and repair of recreational boats, is set to publish its largest supplement ever of the Standards and Technical Information Reports for Small Craft.

With over 75% of revised documents included as the standards basis for the NMMA Boat & Yacht Certification Program, manufacturers designing for 2023 model year will need to understand and apply standards updates that affect their product. ABYC is offering a special pre-order sale until June 18 for the 2021-2022 manual, which will be officially released Aug. 1.

ABYC standards are continuously researched, developed, and revised by over 400 volunteer marine professionals on Project Technical Committees (PTCs). Every year ABYC publishes its updated manual with new and revised safety standards, keeping current with the marine industry's newest trends and technologies.

"PTCs have had an active year in standards development and virtual meetings have allowed for broader international participation," said Brian Goodwin, ABYC technical director. "Over 20 revised documents are set to be published this year, a great accomplishment by experts from all fields of the industry dedicated to keeping boating safe and enjoyable."
