Preventing Collisions at Sea (72 COLREGS)

The International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea 1972 (COLREGS) are published by the International Maritime Organization and are recognized as the navigation rules followed internationally by ships and other vessels at sea. Under this agreement, each signatory nation is obligated to comply with the COLREGS as closely as possible. The Departments of Defense and Commerce, as well as the Coast Guard within the Department of Homeland Security publish regulations to ensure U.S. compliance with the COLREGS. The Coast Guard and the Navy frequently publish alternative compliance requirements or certifications for vessels of special construction that do not fully comply with COLREGS provisions.
