The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) has enacted Consumer Goods (Swimming and Flotation Aids) Safety Standard 2017 on December 14, 2017.

This safety standard specifies requirements for the design, construction, performance, and labelling of swimming and flotation aids based on requirements of the voluntary Australian standard AS/NZS 1900:2014 Flotation aids for water familiarization and swimming tuition.

The mandatory standard provides a transitional period until December 19, 2019, where a flotation aid can comply with either the new standard or Consumer Protection Notice No 3 of 2009 (the standard which was in force immediately before the commencement of the new mandatory standard).
