INTERIM MARINE SAFETY INFORMATION SYSTEM (IMSIS). 1973 TO PRESENT

The system was developed to provide the history of Coast Guard contact with merchant vessels, to include results of boardings, violations found, pollution, and casualty data. All U.S. ports, including Hawaii, Alaska, Guam, Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico, are incorporated in this system. Other principal data elements are vessle name and registry, vessel characteristics such as propulsion type and tonnage, all involved parties, certificate of inspection data, and, where applicable, letter of compliance. The major reports are vessel histories available to the Captains of the Port (COTP), Marine Safety Office (MSO), and to the district hearing officers. Hardcopy reports are generated as needed via interactive teletype terminals. Headquarters has analysis capability.
