UPDATE: The below text has been updated to include a new link to the CG-2692 forms and navigation instructions to view the forms on Homeport.
Today, the Coast Guard released a new version of the CG-2692 form (series), covering reports of marine casualties, commercial diving casualties, or outer continental shelf-related casualties.
This form is the result of an extensive initiative to overhaul the previous form, which had remained unchanged for nearly 40 years.
The new version of the form encompasses several changes, including, but not limited to:
- Revised addendum forms for barge involvement, personnel casualties, witnesses and chemical testing;
- Streamlined data fields to align with statutory and regulatory language; and
- Ability to be filled out entirely electronically, including the use of a digital signature.
To access the forms, please visit Coast Guard Homeport. On the left-hand side of the screen, click ‘Investigations’. The new CG-2692 forms are located under the header ‘Casualty Reporting Forms’. You can also view the forms at the Coast Guard forms library.
