The Safe Loading Standard Test Procedure is designed to determine whether or not a given boat meets the safe loading requirements outlined in the Federal Boat Safety Act of 1971 P. L. 92-75 and the rules and regulations in the Federal Register 37 FR 15782, Aug. 4, 1972, as amended at 39 FR 10899, Mar. 22, 1974 40 FR 33973, Aug. 13, 1975 40 FR 43657, Sept. 23, 1975 40 FR 51440, Nov. 5, 1975 42 FR 2681, Jan. 13, 1977.
