US marine casualty reporting
From 1st July 2016 the US Coast Guard has an amended CG-2692 form for marine casualty reporting. The new form has been streamlined to ease the burden of reporting.
What has changed?
The new form contains several changes, including the following:
- New addendum forms added
- Forms can now be completed electronically and includes a digital signature feature
- Titles and labels have been amended to more closely align with the text and terms found in US statutory and regulatory language
- Superfluous data fields have been removed
A YouTube video from the US Coast Guard is also available providing an Overview of the new CG-2692 form, Report of Marine Casualty, Commercial Diving Casualty or Outer Continental Shelf-related casualty. U.S. Coast Guard video.
