Look for the NDPA layers of protection recommendation seal
On your Water Safety Products!
The purpose of the NDPA Layers of Protection Program is to identify products that can help prevent drowning and to provide a consumer recommendation for products meeting a high level of reliability and excellence in the aquatic environment. This recommendation is a message to consumers that they are using a product that has met the accepted level of certification, testing, and reliability from a manufacturer that believes in drowning prevention and water safety. This is not an endorsement of a product, rather is a recommendation to the consumer.
Consumers should look for the NDPA Layers of Protection Recommendation Seal on products. This recommendation seal means that a product meets all required safety standards, product testing requirements, and is recognized as an additional layer of protection to prevent drownings and aquatic injuries.
