New Form CG-3752 Application for Inspection of U.S. Vessel

The Office of Commercial Vessel Compliance (CG-CVC) has posted an updated CG-3752 Application for Inspection of U.S. Vessel which combines CG form CG-3752 – Application for Inspection of U.S. Vessel and CG-3752A – Application for Inspection of U.S. Vessel (New Construction) into a new single two-page form.

The second page of the form is only needed to be completed in addition to the first page if a U.S. vessel is New Construction or Entering Certificated Service. The updated Application for Inspection reduces redundancy, increases efficiency, and streamlines form completion with necessary values to align with the Coast Guard’s database. It includes embedded hyperlinks, dropdowns, electronic signatures, and manual entry options if needed.

The form can be found on the Office of Information Management’s (CG-61) forms website by searching CG-3752. Internet Explorer will open forms by default while other browsers may require download and opening of the document in Adobe Reader.
