Note: See table 2 of part 153 for additional cargoes permitted to be carried by tank barge.

Explanation of Symbols: As used in this table the following stands for:

A, B, C, D—NLS Category of Annex II of MARPOL 73/78.

I—Considered an “oil” under Annex I of MARPOL 73/78.

III—Appendix III of Annex II (non-NLS cargoes) of MARPOL 73/78.

LFG—Liquefied flammable gas.

#—No determination of NLS status. For shipping on an oceangoing vessel, see 46 CFR 153.900(c).

[ ]—A NLS category in brackets indicates that the product is provisionally categorized and that further data are necessary to complete the evaluation of its pollution hazards. Until the hazard evaluation is completed, the pollution category assigned is used.

@—The NLS category has been assigned by the U.S. Coast Guard, in absence of one assigned by the IMO. The category is based upon a GESAMP Hazard Profile or by analogy to a closely related product having an NLS assigned.

†—The provisions contained in 46 CFR part 197, subpart C, may apply to this cargo.

Abbreviations for Noxious liquid Cargoes:

N.F.—non-flammable (flash point greater than 60 degrees C (140 degrees F) cc).

F.—flammable (flash point less than or equal to 60 degrees C (140 degrees F) cc).

n.o.s.—not otherwise specified.

ST—Ship type.

Cat—Pollution category.

Words in italic are not part of the cargo name but may be used in addition to the cargo name.

When one entry references another entry by use of the word “ see ”, and both names are in roman type, either name may be used as the cargo name (e.g., Diethyl ether, see Ethyl ether). However, the referenced entry is preferred.

Subpart 30.30—Interim Procedures for Evaluating Vessel Personnel Licensing and Certification Programs of Foreign Countries
top

Source:   CGD 79–081a, 45 FR 23427, Apr. 7, 1980, unless otherwise noted.

§ 30.30-1   Scope and purpose.
top

(a) This subpart contains procedures for evaluating vessel personnel licensing and certification programs of foreign countries. Evaluations are done for countries which license or certificate personnel serving on tank vessels that enter or operate in U.S. navigable waters and ports.

(b) The purpose of each evaluation is to determine whether a foreign licensing and certification program has standards that are comparable to or more stringent than U.S. standards.

(c) A determination that licensing and certification standards of a foreign country are not comparable to or more stringent than U.S. standards will subject tank vessels manned with officers licensed by that country to the prohibition in 33 U.S.C. 1228(a)(5) on operation with those officers in U.S. navigable waters and ports.

§ 30.30-3   Evaluation materials.
top

The materials to be submitted for evaluation must include the English text of the following:

(a) All laws, decrees, orders, and regulations relating to manning, training, qualification, and watchkeeping of personnel on tank vessels engaged in foreign trade.

(b) A copy of each type of license and certificate issued by the country to tank vessel personnel.

§ 30.30-5   Submission of evaluation materials.
top

(a) The evaluation materials listed in §30.30–3 should be sent to Commandant (G-MOC), U.S. Coast Guard Headquarters, 2100 Second Street, SW., Washington, DC 20593. The materials should include the name and address of the person to whom correspondence concerning the evaluation can be sent.

(b) Updated materials may be submitted at any time during the evaluation process.

[CGD 79–081a, 45 FR 23427, Apr. 7, 1980, as amended by CGD 95–072, 60 FR 50461, Sept. 29, 1995; CGD 96–041, 61 FR 50726, Sept. 27, 1996]

§ 30.30-7   Availability of materials.
top

Evaluation materials submitted in accordance with this subpart will be available for inspection and copying between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday, except holidays, at Coast Guard Headquarters, room 1104, 2100 Second Street, SW., Washington, DC 20593. Telephone: (202) 372–1251.

[CGD 79–081a, 45 FR 23427, Apr. 7, 1980, as amended by CGD 95–072, 60 FR 50461, Sept. 29, 1995; USCG–2006–25697, 71 FR 55745, Sept. 25, 2006]

§ 30.30-9   Evaluation.
top

Materials submitted in accordance with this subpart will be evaluated by comparison to the regulations in parts 5, 10, and 13 of this chapter, and by comparison to the U.S. laws referenced in those regulations.

[CGD79–081a, 45 FR 23427, Apr. 7, 1980, as amended by CGD 97–057, 62 FR 51043, Sept. 30, 1997]

§ 30.30-11   Determinations.
top

(a) After evaluation of materials submitted in accordance with this subpart, a determination will be made as to whether the licensing and certification program described by the materials has standards that are comparable to or more stringent than standards set by the regulations and laws referenced in §30.30–9.

(b) Notice of each determination made in accordance with this section and a brief explanation of reasons therefor will be published in theFederal Register.A copy of this notice will also be sent to the person whose name is provided in accordance with §30.30–5.

(c) Each determination remains in effect for 5 years unless sooner cancelled.

(d) Any request to reconsider a determination must be submitted to the address listed in §30.30–5 and must include a statement of reasons in support. The person submitting the request will be notified in writing of the action taken.

[CGD 79–081a, 45 FR 23427, Apr. 7, 1980, as amended by USCG-2004–18884, 69 FR 58345, Sept. 30, 2004; USCG–2004–18884, 69 FR 68089, Nov. 23, 2004]
