USCG accepts SOLAS Chapter V

The U.S. Coast Guard has extended its policy of accepting SOLAS Chapter V (Safety of Navigation) compliance as conforming to U.S. requirements, despite delays in the U.S. conforming revisions on matters such as Voyage Data Recorders, AIS installation and electronic charting (ECDIS). The extended policy has the effect of resolving inconsistencies between U.S. regulations and Chapter V SOLAS requirements in favour of SOLAS.
