9/18/2014: Port Security Advisory- Conditions of entry

Correction: In paragraph one, “…removing exempted ports in Cambodia.” was replaced with, “modifying the list of ports not maintaining effective anti-terrorism measures for which conditions of entry apply to vessels arriving to the U.S. Specifically, the Coast Guard has removed the previously granted exemption for certain ports in Cambodia which have been determined to no longer be maintaining effective ant-terrorism measures.”

The Coast Guard’s International Port Security Program published Port Security Advisory 3-14 modifying the list of ports not maintaining effective anti-terrorism measures for which conditions of entry apply to vessels arriving to the U.S. Specifically, the Coast Guard has removed the previously granted exemption for certain ports in Cambodia which have been determined to no longer be maintaining effective ant-terrorism measures.
