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 the January 2015 of Maritime Reporter and Engineering News, you can find my article entitled "Regulation of dynamic positioning". In the article, I discuss the development and expanding application of dynamic positioning through numerous sectors of the maritime industry, the progression of industry standards relating to training and qualification of DP personnel, and recent efforts by the US Coast Guard to regulate this practice.
