Can 33 CFR 164 be applied to federal requirements regarding the carriage of nautical charts and publications?
Besides complying with 33 CFR 164.01, U.S. vessels using Nautical charts and publications must also comply with 33 CFR 164.33 and 33 CFR 164.72. These parameters are listed below:
(a) Unless otherwise specified in this section, this part applies to all self-propelled vessels of 1600 gross tons or more that operate on navigable waters of the United States, except the St. Lawrence Seaway.
(b) 164.70 to 164.82 of this part apply to all towing vessels operating in navigable waters of the United States other than the St. Lawrence Seaway that are 12 meters (39.4 feet) or greater. If a towing vessel meets any of the following requirements, it is exempt from the requirements of section 164.72.
(1) Intended solely for restricted services, such as making up or breaking up larger tows, and limited to a limited area, such as a fleeting area or commercial facility;
(2) Complying with 46 CFR 10.103 for the sole purpose of assistance towing;
As a sole means of responding to pollution;
Any other vessel may be exempted by the Captain of the Port (COTP). It is possible for a vessel exempted from 164.72 to be exempted from its application by the COTP if the COTP determines that exempting it would allow its unsafe navigation in the anticipated conditions.
(As long as their navigation systems conform to regulations applicable to navigation safety, warships or other vessels owned, leased, or operated by the United States Government in noncommercial government service are exempt from 164.11(a)(2) and (c) provisions, 164.30, 164.33, and 164.46.
(d) The provisions of 164.46 apply to some self-propelled vessels under 1600 gross tons.
