DHS/USCG RIN: 1625-AB99 Publication ID: Fall 2016 
Title: Marine Casualty Reporting on the Outer Continental Shelf 

The primary purpose of this rulemaking is to extend 46 CFR part 4 provisions regarding marine casualty reporting and associated drug testing requirements to foreign vessels engaged in Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) activities on the United States OCS.  This will ensure the same level of safety is provided to all mariners, floating installations, mobile offshore drilling units, offshore supply vessels, and other vessels operating on the United States OCS. This will improve the Coast Guard's ability to investigate casualties that occur on the United States OCS. Additionally, casualty data is essential to conducting the analysis necessary to develop sound future regulatory requirements. A regulatory safety regime founded on improved casualty information will help prevent future mishaps and make the OCS safer and cleaner for future generations.
