REGULATIONS FOR TANK VESSELS ENGAGED IN THE CARRIAGE OF OIL IN DOMESTIC TRADE - FINAL ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STATEMENT
The pollution requlations in Subchapter 0 of Title 33, Code of Federal Regulations, are to be amended by adding regulations governing the design and operation of certain seagoing U.S. tankships and barges certificated to carry oil in the United States domestic trade. These regulations represent one step by the Coast Guard to implement the Ports and Waterways Safety Act by 1972 (P. L. 92-340), Title II, as amended. They are based on standards adopted by the International Conference for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships, 1973, but also include constraints on the location of segregated ballast spaces required on new tankers over 70,000 deadweight tons (DWT).
