The U.S. Coast Guard announced that it has adopted the recommendation of the IMO STW Subcommittee to delay enforcement of STCW
95 vis-à-vis foreign vessels until August 1, 2002. While the United States did not support the delay when it was proposed, neither it nor any other IMO member opposed the measure. The goal is uniformity in the application of STCW 95.
