The U.S. Cost Guard issued policy guidance regarding U.S. small passenger vessels (SPV) that carry SOLAS documents. These vessels are normally required to utilize only port facilities that comply with the requirements of the ISPS Code and the USCG maritime security regulations. Under this policy guidance, such a vessel may request a waiver, provided that, among other things, the vessel agrees to absorb the security requirements normally performed by the facility.
