New BSR Affects Everyone

Does anyone have any more info on this new BSR?:

At its recent meeting, the USPA Board approved a new Basic Safety Requirement that applies a minimum age requirement to all skydiving equipment. Now, all skydives must be made in accordance with the specific manufacturer’s age requirement for each component used for the jump, including the main and reserve canopies, harness and container, automatic activation device and accessories. This requirement was previously only applied to tandem equipment. According to the Parachute Industry Association, whose representatives brought this request to the USPA Board, all of the U.S. equipment manufacturers that PIA represents require users of their equipment to be the age of legal majority.
