Assisting the maritime industry in regulatory compliance

Bryant's Maritime Consulting


This site is intended to familiarize the reader with issues of significance to legislators and regulators and explain how they might impact the maritime community.  Most of the time, new developments are presnted in a straight-forward manner.  Sometimes, though, I will include my own perspective on an issue.  My perspective is just that – my own.  I welcome comment on the various topics presented – whether in support or disagreement.

In addition, this transition will allow failures to occur in wholly unique ways.
