USCG broadens GL agreement
The authorization includes all necessary inspection functions for the issue of the certificates and the performance of plan review and approval.
These assignments extend GL's original agreement with the USCG which began on September 7, 2001, and that authorizes it to issue both the International Tonnage and ISM Certificates.
The amended annex to the existing agreement was signed January 7, 2003 at U.S. Coast Guard headquarters in Washington D.C. by Dr Hans G. Payer, GL Executive Board Member, and Rear Admiral Paul J. Pluta, Assistant Commandant for Marine Safety, Security and Environmental Protection.
"The delegation of additional tasks strengthens our safety partnership with the US Coast Guard, and will benefit US ship operators," Dr Payer said
