DHS/USCG RIN: 1625-AC50 Publication ID: Fall 2018 
Title: ●Person in Charge of Fuel Transfers 

The Coast Guard proposes to amend the requirements for who may serve as the person in charge (PIC) of fuel transfers on inspected vessels when a declaration of inspection is required. This amendment would provide an alternative to the requirement that PICs hold a Merchant Mariner Credential (MMC) with either an officer endorsement or Tankerman-PIC endorsement. This rulemaking seeks to relieve certain personnel from the burden of obtaining and renewing an MMC every 5 years.
