SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The United States is signatory to the International Maritime Organization’s International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea, 1972 (72 COLREGS), as amended.

Under statutory law 1 and Coast Guard regulation,2 a vessel may instead meet alternative requirements and the vessel’s owner, builder, operator, or agent may apply for a COAC. For vessels of special construction, the cognizant Coast Guard District Office determines whether the vessel for which the COAC is sought complies as closely as possible with the 72 COLREGS, and decides whether to issue the COAC. Once issued, a COAC remains valid until information supplied in the COAC application or the COAC terms become inapplicable to the vessel. Under the governing statute 3 and regulation,4 the Coast Guard must publish notice of this action. The Coast Guard encourages the use of two masthead lights on power-driven vessels less than 50 meters in length in accordance with ‘‘The Boating Safety Circular’’ 75, June 1993, page 15.
