The Review

The review is being conducted to study the Coast Guard's management and methodology for the development of Great Lakes pilotage bridge hour standards and to produce a recommendation of the appropriate standards. Bridge hour standards are a critical element in determining the number of U.S. pilots needed to provide service to commercial vessels engaged in foreign trade on the Great Lakes. The current bridge hour standards are published in the appendix, Ratemaking Analyses and Methodology, to 46 CFR Part 404.
