A brief overview and background on the landmark congressional legislation,

New United States Coast Guard Salvor and Marine Firefighter Regulations

The USCG published new OPA-90 Salvage and Marine Firefighting regulations at the end of 2008.  With the new regulations came selection criteria for your maritime salvage and marine firefighting provider.

The Coast Guard amended the vessel response plan salvage and marine firefighting requirements for tank vessels carrying oil.  These revisions clarify the salvage and marine firefighting services that must be identified in vessel response plans and set new response time requirements for each of the required salvage and marine firefighting services. The changes ensure that the appropriate salvage and marine firefighting resources are identified and available for responding to incidents up to and including the worst case discharge scenario.
