As a courtesy to our audience, Maritime Commons will provide a daily compilation of nationally-relevant Federal Register Notices.

Please note, the Coast Guard cannot respond to comments on these notices outside of the Federal Register.

The Coast Guard National Maritime Center issued a bulletin announcing that, in accordance with Federal Regulations, duplicate Merchant Mariner Credentials may be issued free of charge to mariners whose credentials were lost or destroyed as a result of the recent flooding in Louisiana and neighboring states.

Mariners should contact the National Maritime Center with specific information to obtain an expedited replacement credential.
