Coast Guard announces final regulations for vessel financial
responsibility under the Oil Pollution Act of 1990

WASHINGTON - The Coast Guard published a final rule Wednesday amending
Coast Guard regulations under the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 (OPA 90), in
Title 33, Code of Federal Regulations, Part 138, governing requirements
for vessel owners and operators to establish and maintain evidence of
financial responsibility.

The amendments ensure the amounts of financial responsibility that must be
demonstrated under the Coast Guard's Certificate of Financial
Responsibility program are consistent with increases to the OPA 90 limits
of liability by the Delaware River Protection Act of 2006. The amendments
also increase the COFR application and certification fees, and eliminate
the requirement that an original printed COFR be carried aboard covered
vessels.

The amendments ensure vessel owners and operators have the ability to pay
for removal costs and damages up to the OPA 90 limits of liability, in the
event of an oil pollution incident. The fee increases account for
inflation. In addition, improved technology now enables the Coast Guard
to verify whether a vessel has a current COFR electronically, a more
efficient and cost effective method than tasking inspectors to view a
paper certificate on board each vessel.

The Coast Guard encourages the public to view the final rule in the
Federal Register at 73 FR 53691, or online at www.gpoaccess.gov/fr.
