The U.S. Coast Guard has published a Navigation Rules and Regulations Handbook that replaces the former Navigation Rules International and Inland.

The new handbook includes the International Regulations for Prevention of Collisions at Sea and the Inland Navigation Rules. Other pertinent laws and regulations are also included, such as Bridge-to-Bridge Radiotelephone Act and Vessel Traffic Services.

The navigation rules and additional information regarding the new handbook can be found online at the Coast Guard’s Navigation Center Web site (www.navcen.uscg.gov) by selecting “Nav Rules” from the upper navigation bar.

Reported in a recent edition of Wheelhouse Weekly, a newsletter of the International Organization of Masters, Mates & Pilots. It has been reprinted with permission.
