DHS/USCG RIN: 1625-AA11 Publication ID: Fall 2008 
Title: Regulated Navigation Areas 
Abstract: These routine and frequent regulations establish operating requirements for vessels within specified geographic areas to ensure safety on the navigable waters where some special or unusual circumstance exists. Regulated navigation areas are limited areas in which the Coast Guard specifies operational or vessel restrictions such as vessel entry, movement or departure, and vessel size, speed, horsepower, or draft limitations. Regulated navigation areas are promulgated by District Commanders, usually at the request of Coast Guard marine safety or local maritime safety officials. These routine and frequent rulemakings support the Coast Guard's strategic goals of waterways management, marine safety, and maritime mobility. The total actions expected are 5-10 annually.
