Title: Safety Management Systems for Domestic Passenger Vessels  

The Coast Guard reviewed the public input received in response to its January 2021, ANPRM on a possible new safety management system (SMS) for passenger and small passenger vessels. This proposed rulemaking would outline new SMS regulations for small passenger vessels (SPVs) meeting the statutory definition of a covered small passenger vessel in line with the 2010 and 2020 Coast Guard Authorization Acts.  Under this proposed rulemaking, all SPVs on oceans or coastwise routes, or having overnight accommodations for passengers, would be required to implement an SMS conforming to the requirements of a newly developed SPV SMS or an accepted alternative.
