NVIC – Environmental Inspection of Foreign Vessels

Monday, February 23, 2004
The U.S. Coast Guard issued a Navigation and Vessel Inspection Circular (NVIC) providing an addendum to its Foreign Passenger Vessel Inspection Book consisting of an environmental inspection checklist. The checklist was developed with the participation of the Florida Caribbean Cruise Association (FCCA) and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) and takes into consideration new regulations on cruise vessel operations in certain Alaska waters. The checklist does not change the regulations, but provides an extensive list of possible inspection items related to pollution prevention equipment, operation, plans, and records. (HK Law)
