    5.1.4 is revised to make it clear that any inspections and tests other than those specified are in addition to, NOT in lieu of, the inspections and tests required by the standard. Revisions to 9.2.1 and Note 3 to are made to require the endurance burn test to be conducted at atmospheric pressure but allows for an additional endurance burn test to be conducted at any pressure higher than atmospheric. These revisions are necessary in order to be consistent with current practice and U.S. Coast Guard regulations, but allows for manufactures, designers, purchasers and operators to require additional tests as may be necessary now or in the future.
