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.

    logo11 Marine casualty reporting & investigation

    In the June 2015 edition of Maritime Reporter and Engineering News, you can find my article entitled "Marine casualty reporting & investigation". In the article, I discuss problems with the current USCG marine casualty reporting and investigation system and suggest that it is time to overhaul and pare back requirements so as to make the process both manageable for the Coast Guard and meaningful for the regulated community.
