The Coast Guard will report detected VGP deficiencies to the EPA. The Coast Guard has prepared policy letter 11–01, Policy for Guidelines for Coast Guard Evaluations of Compliance with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Vessel General Permit for Discharges Incidental to the Normal Operation of Vessels, in consultation with the EPA to assist Coast Guard staff in the preparation for and the execution of VGP compliance monitoring inspections and exams. Vessel owners and/or operators are ultimately responsible for compliance with all aspects of the VGP. Vessels may be subject to inspection to verify compliance with any and all legal requirements. Vessel owners and operators may wish to take note of the PO 00000 Frm 00051 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 minimum items that the Marine Inspectors (MI) and PSC Officers may examine during VGP compliance exams, as outlined in the policy letter.
