About the National Boating Standards Panel

The National Boating Education Standards, originally adopted by the NASBLA membership in 1999, are intended to prescribe the minimum body of knowledge to effect safe, legal, and enjoyable recreational boating and to serve as a basis for boating education courses approved by NASBLA and recognized by the U.S. Coast Guard.  NASBLA received recognition as an Accredited Standards Developer from the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) in 2014.

The National Boating Standards Panel (NSP) is the committee designated by NASBLA to implement ANSI's Essential Requirements for creation of American National Standards.
