DHS/USCG RIN: 1625-AA11 Publication ID: Spring 2017 
Title: Regulated Navigation Areas 

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 officials or local maritime safety officials. These routine and frequent rulemakings support the Coast Guard's broad roles and responsibilities of maritime safety and maritime stewardship. A total of 15 actions are expected annually.
