US Coast Guard Begins VGP Inspections

Wednesday, March 23, 2011

The US Environmental Protection Agency and US Coast Guard have signed a memorandum of understanding.  In it, the USCG will begin inspecting for compliance with the US EPA Vessel General Permit Regulations as part of their U.S. Flag vessel inspections and Port State Control inspections. Enforcement will be done by the EPA.
The MARPOL Training Institute has created a computer based Vessel General Permit training program for ratings and officers.  There are two versions one for vessels operating solely within the territorial waters of the U.S. and another for offshore vessels that transit in and out of the territorial waters of the U.S. This program is already installed aboard more than 600 vessels and ship management offices.
