Printing of Coast Guard Light Lists
The Coast Guard publishes Light List Volumes 1-4 and 6-7 annually; with Volume 5 being published biennially. In order to adjust to a new printing cycle, the Coast Guard will not publish the 2008 editions of the Light Lists as required by 33 CFR 72.05-1 (50 FR 50904), except for Light List Volume 5 (Mississippi River System). The Coast Guard is changing the publication cycle of the Light List so that annual editions are available early in each calendar year. Since the printing of the 2007 editions occurred in November 2007, they will remain effective for approximately 14 months.
