From 1 January 2021, all life jackets in Tasmania on recreational boats will need to comply with AS4758.

If you have bought a life jacket in the last three years, there is a good chance that it is approved to AS4758.  Check the label inside the life jacket.

New standard jackets will be branded as Level 50, Level 100, Level 150 or greater and will be marked with AS4758.

The old standard jackets would be marked as PFD 1,2, or 3 and correspond to AS1512, 1499 or 2260.
