    logo11 Slow walking the inspection of towing vessels

    In the July 2016 edition of Maritime Reporter and Engineering News, you can find my article entitled "Slow walking the inspection of towing vessels". In the article, I discuss the US Coast Guard's recent rulemaking on the inspection of towing vessels - Subchapter M. The article points out that, while the regulations have technically entered into effect, many of their provisions will not become applicable until a future date. For example, the requirement for each covered towing vessel to have a valid certificate of inspection (COI) will be phased in over the next six years.
