USCG amends inland navigation rules

Date Reported: Jul 03, 2014

Reported by: Mike Ahart, News Editor

The Coast Guard is amending the inland navigation rules and their annexes to align the regulations with amendments made by the International Maritime Organization to the Convention on the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea, to which the United States is a signatory, and to incorporate recommendations made by the Navigation Safety Advisory Council. These changes harmonize domestic and international law by reducing and alleviating equipment requirements on vessels, addressing technological advancements, such as wing-in-ground craft, and increasing public awareness of the inland navigation rules. These changes also make references to applicable requirements easier to locate by using the same format in domestic regulations as is used in the international convention.

DATES: This final rule is effective August 1, 2014.

See Federal Register document: Changes to the Inland Navigation Rules; Final Rule (pdf file).
