The National Association of State Boating Law Administrators said the group was accredited as a standards developer by the American National Standards Institute.

The approval, which was effective Sept. 19, is made under ANSI’s approved operating procedures for documenting consensus on proposed American National Standards for boating education and training.

NASBLA’s scope of activity for American National Standards development focuses on knowledge and competencies for the recreational boater and boating professionals working within or on behalf of the recreational boating community in North America, the association said in a statement.

Information about the value of the American National Standards process is available by visiting www.ansi.org/ansvalue.
