FOREWORD

This publication contains a revised compilation of those parts of title 46 of the United States Code (1958 Edition), as well as other sections, pertaining to the inspection of merchant vessels and security of life at sea. It replaces the “Laws Governing Marine Inspection, dated July 3, 1950, and includes all additions, deletions, and amendments from that date to June 1, 1962.

General authority over the administration of the laws and regulations governing navigation and inspection of merchant vessels in the several Coast Guard Districts is delegated to the Coast Guard District Commanders in such districts. The rules and regulations dealing with inspection and navigation, issued pursuant to the authority of laws contained in this document and others, may be found in title 33, chapter I, and title 46, chapter I, of the Code of Federal Regulations, as well as in separate publications of the United States Coast Guard.

Attention is invited to section 492 of title 46, United States Code, contained herein, which requires every master or commander of any steam vessel carrying passengers to keep on board at least two copies of this pamphlet. It is most important that shipowners, operators, builders, vessels' operating forces, and other persons affected by these laws, rules, and regulations familiarize themselves with the provisions of this document. To this end, Coast Guard personnel concerned with the administration of these laws will extend every possible assistance.
