1.1 The requirements in this standard apply to the construction and performance characteristics of fuel pumps intended for marine use that are:
a) Mechanically operated; or
b) Electrically operated and rated 50 volts dc or less,
and that are intended for use on recreational boats. The standard covers both independently mounted pumps and integrally mounted pumps used with engines or accessory devices. The standard also addresses pumps used to transfer fuel between tanks. Pumps covered by this Standard may be used with gasoline, diesel fuel, or both.

1.3 The pumps covered by these requirements are intended for installation and use in accordance with the applicable requirements of the U.S. Coast Guard (as specified in 33 CFR 183 Subpart J – Fuel Systems and 33 CFR 183 Subpart I – Electrical Systems ), the standards of the American Boat and Yacht Council, Inc. , and the Standard for Fire Protection of Pleasure and Commercial Motorcraft , NFPA 302 .
1.4 These requirements do not cover mechanically or electrically operated marine fuel pumps intended for use in hazardous locations as defined in the United States Coast Guard Electrical Engineering Regulations. See 46 CFR Section 111.105-1 .
1.5 These requirements cover ignition-protected pumps (for use with gasoline) that may be required on boats under 65 feet (19.8 m) in length. Pumps for use with diesel fuel are not required to be ignition protected.
1.6 A product that contains features, characteristics, components, materials, or systems new or different from those covered by the requirements in this standard, and that involves a risk of fire or of electric shock or injury to persons shall be evaluated using appropriate additional component and end-product requirements to maintain the level of safety as originally anticipated by the intent of this standard. A product whose features, characteristics, components, materials, or systems conflict with specific requirements or provisions of this standard does not comply with this standard. Revision of requirements shall be proposed and adopted in conformance with the methods employed for development, revision, and implementation of this standard.
