SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

Operators of U.S.-flag oceangoing vessels in U.S. foreign trade and certain foreign-flag vessels must report on their locations pursuant to 46 CFR part 307 to enhance the safety of vessel operations at sea and provide a contingency for events of national emergency. AMVER means Automated Mutual-Assistance Vessel Rescue System operated by the U.S. Coast Guard. The “AMVER Bulletin” is available from the U.S. Coast Guard, AMVER Maritime Relations Office, Battery Park Building, New York, NY 10004.

Previously, the “AMVER Bulletin” was available from the U.S. Coast Guard at AMVER Center, Governors Island, New York, NY 10004. However, the U.S. Coast Guard base on Governors Island is closed. Therefore, we are updating the address to reflect the Coast Guard's change of location.
