Description: Foreign vessels operating in U.S. waters are subject to inspection under Title 46 United States Code (U.S.C.) Chapter 33. Reciprocity is accorded to vessels of countries that are parties to the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) (46 U.S.C. 3303(a)). In addition, certain provisions of U.S. pollution prevention and navigation safety regulations (33 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Parts 154-156 and Part 164, respectively) apply to foreign vessels operating in U.S. waters. The applicability of many of these laws and regulations has been modified by international conventions.
This chapter explains the application of the laws, convention agreements, and regulations that apply to all foreign vessels operating in U.S. waters.
This guide is useful for Owners, Managers as well as Masters onboard foreign vessels visiting US ports.
