In the US the states set their own laws concerning the age for mandatory PFD use with the exception of inflatable PFDs which are authorized for use on people over 16 YO. Requirements for the life jackets themselves as well as what size boat needs them (and what type) are mandated by the CG. But age is determined by the states.

USCG life jacket information.
