Editor’s note: This post was updated June 4, 2018, at 12:30 p.m. in order to include the table of forms.

The National Maritime Center (NMC) issued a bulletin announcing that the Office of Management and Budget approved March 31, 2018, the new CG-719 series of forms to replace all previous versions.

These new forms may be obtained electronically in a PDF fillable format at the NMC’s website. The Coast Guard will not stock the CG-719 series of forms in paper format.

A transition period has been established which will provide mariners the flexibility to apply for a credential using both the old or new forms as they adapt to the new formats. The table below lists the form numbers impacted by OMB’s recent approval and their implementation policy. After December 31, 2018, the NMC will no longer accept previous form versions.
