Assistant Commandant for Prevention Policy Rear Adm. Richard Timme signed the Coast Guard Regulated Facility Compliance Program Manual to consolidate overarching guidance, policy, and doctrine for Coast Guard personnel responsible for the administration and performance of the regulated facility compliance program. The manual is a collection of facility compliance information from other sources, such as Marine Safety Manual Vol. II, directives, and policy letters. The manual formalizes existing best practices and provides amplifying information to Coast Guard personnel on oversight and management of facility compliance programs and activities conducted as part of those programs.
Topics covered in the manual include:
Chapter 1: General information
Chapter 2: Safety
Chapter 3: Program Administration
Chapter 4: Handling of Dangerous Cargo at Waterfront Facilities
Chapter 5: Waterfront Facilities handling LNG and LHG
Chapter 6: Facilities Transferring Oil of Hazardous Material in Bulk
For more information about the manual contact the local Coast Guard Facilities Inspection Branch, which can be found by going to https://homeport.uscg.mil/ and selecting “Port Directory.”
