USCG eases security guard requirement

The most recent Port Security Advisory (5-08) issued by the U.S. Coast Guard says that the requirement for the use of armed security guards on vessels that are subject to conditions of entry into U.S. ports will no longer be automatic. Instead, the requirement will be determined by the Coast Guard on a case-by-case basis after considering the security compliance history of the vessel.

The new advisory also adds British Petroleum Arco Arjuna, Newmont Nusa Tenagara, and Chevron Santan Marine Terminal to the list of Indonesian port facilities that are excepted from the conditions of entry.
