DHS/USCG RIN: 1625-AC93 Publication ID: Fall 2023 
Title: ●Updated Document Submission Process for Compliance With Electronic Records Mandate  

The Coast Guard is issuing a final rule of agency procedure to update title 46 of the Code of Federal Regulations part 67.  The final rule will reflect the Coast Guard National Vessel Documentation Center’s current processes and capabilities regarding electronic files.  The changes include removing the requirement for original documents provided for evidence of the facts of build (a completed original form CC-1261, or another original document).  The rule will also eliminate references to specific electronic means of submission of instruments because the National Vessel Documentation Center's systems are no longer able to accept physical faxes or electronic faxes.  The rule also increases the length of time that a vessel owner has to report changes in information that a certificate of documentation is based on.
