New USCG Policy on Tank Cargo Transfer

USCG revises policy on transfer of cargo by foreign tank vessels

The U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) Sector Houston-Galveston has established a policy governing the transfer of cargo by foreign tank vessels in advance of overdue safety compliance inspection to help minimize cargo transfer delays within the Houston-Galveston (including Texas City, Freeport, Port Arthur and Lake Charles) area of responsibility (AOR), GAC reported.

As a result the Cargo Waiver Request form has been revised.
