Project Title:

Revise and Update U.S. Coast Guard Vessel Stability Regulations
PIN: TRB-SASP-17-07        

Major Unit:

Transportation Research Board

Sub Unit:
RSO: Hutchins, Mark

Subject/Focus Area: Transportation and Infrastructure

Project Scope
The study committee will review the set of United States Coast Guard (USCG) regulations and policy documents that establish stability requirements for U.S. flag vessels in order to identify, and recommend as appropriate, options to make and keep the requirements current, align them better with international standards, improve their consistency and clarity, and organize them in a manner that facilitates their use and compliance. In addition, the committee will identify candidate sources of data that USCG can explore further to inform its assessments of the advantages and disadvantages of requiring all inspected passenger vessels to undergo periodic stability verifications, including lightweight surveys.

The project is sponsored by Naval Architecture Division, Office of Design & Engineering Standards, U.S. Coast Guard.
The approximate start date for the project is September 1 2017.
A letter report will be issued at the end of the project in approximately 12 months.

Project Duration: 12 months
