Conditions of Entry, Arriving from Congo

Tuesday, September 01, 2009

The US Coast Guard issued a notice stating that, effective September 15, it will impose conditions of entry on vessels arriving to the United States from the Republic of the Congo, with the exception of vessels arriving from the Djeno Oil Terminal, a single buoy mooring off-shore, during their last five port calls. In summary, each affected vessel must: (1) implement the Security Level 2 measures from its ship security plan while in a Congolese port; (2) ensure that each access point is guarded and that guards have total visibility of the exterior of the vessel while in a Congolese port; (3) attempt to execute a Declaration of Security while in a Congolese port; (4) log all security actions; and (5) report actions taken to the pertinent USCG Captain of the Port [COTP] prior to arrival in the US. 74 Fed. Reg. 45230 (September 1, 2009).
