Description: In September 2017, the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) Office of Design and Engineering Standards asked the National Academies of Sciences, Engineer- ing, and Medicine (the National Academies), through the Transportation Research Board’s (TRB’s) Marine Board, to review USCG regulations and policy documents that establish stability requirements for U.S. flag vessels. The USCG has the authority to inspect commercial vessels to ensure their safety under 46 U.S. Code Chapter 33. The associated regulations in 46 Code of Federal Regulations Chapter I contain requirements for vessel stability that apply to certain vessels used in commercial passenger and cargo service. Subchapter S is generally applicable to all vessels; Subchapter T applies to certain small, inspected passenger vessels; and Subchapter C applies to certain uninspected vessels (primarily commercial fishing industry vessels).
The USCG asked for the review to identify and suggest options to make and keep stability requirements current, align them better with interna- tional standards, and improve their consistency and clarity. The National Academies formed a study committee comprised of members with expertise in naval architecture, vessel design and construction, regulation and inspec- tion activity, safety standards development, and marine transportation and vessel operations.
