DP Incident reporting U. S. Coast Guard

1) The Coast Guard released a policy last week on voluntary DP Incident reporting (see attached). This policy letter clarifies the protocol for voluntary reporting of MODU DP incidents (as recommended in Coast Guard Federal Register Notice 77 FR 26562, “Mobile Offshore Drilling Unit Dynamic Positioning Guidance,” May 4th, 2012) and outlines how the Coast Guard would use voluntary incident reports to facilitate industry wide improvements to DP reliability by using lessons learned from voluntary reports. This policy, and the FRN (77 FR 26562) it refers to are also available at http://www.uscg.mil/hq/cg5/cg521/

For questions, please contact CDR Josh Reynolds, USCG Office of Design & Engineering Standards, Human Element and Ship Design Division (CG-ENG-1), 202-372-1355, Joshua.D.Reynolds@uscg.mil.
