For the convenience of our readers, Maritime Commons will occasionally announce when the Marine Safety Center (MSC) publishes updated Plan Review Guidelines and Design Verification Guidelines.
The following Plan Review Guidelines were updated in October 2018:
This Plan Review Guideline provides general guidance and information for conducting successful stability tests and submitting stability test procedures to the MSC. It applies to vessels certificated under any subchapter of 46 CFR.
Plan Review Guidelines were developed by MSC staff and are provided as an aid in the preparation and review of vessel plans and submissions. They were developed to supplement existing guidance and are not intended to substitute or replace laws, regulations, or other official Coast Guard policy documents. For more information about PRG, contact the MSC at firstname.lastname@example.org or 202-795-6729. When contacting MSC, reference the PRG by procedure number, e.g. GEN 05.
This blog is not a replacement or substitute for the formal posting of regulations and updates or existing processes for receiving formal feedback of the same. Links provided on this blog will direct the reader to official source documents, such as the Federal Register, Homeport and the Code of Federal Regulations. These documents remain the official source for regulatory information published by the Coast Guard.
