Tuesday, July 25, 2006
Shull Autin, COO of SEACOR Marine LLC, on behalf of the Offshore Marine Service Association (OMSA), testified before the House Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation Subcommittee, Transportation and Infrastructure Committee on July 20. In his testimony, Autin addressed the following, and offered suggestions for improvement: U.S. Coast Guard Licensing and Documentation is a critical part of maritime safety; Coast Guard Licensing and Documentation as a process has become increasingly more complex for American mariners; Due to the hurricanes of 2005 and other issues, the marine industry has experienced delays in the Licensing and Documentation process; this delay is unacceptable; and The Coast Guard’s reorganization should improve the overall process to license and document mariners, but challenges remain.
