The Coast Guard is revising several vessel inspection and certification regulations to align them with a statutory definition of ``seagoing barge'' and with a statutory exemption from inspection and certification requirements for certain seagoing barges. The revisions are intended to eliminate ambiguity in existing regulations, to reduce the potential for confusion among the regulated public, and to help the Coast Guard perform its maritime safety and stewardship missions.
