NOTES: In 2006, New Orleans, Houston, and New York were the leading ports in the number of safety and security examinations. However, Houston, Seattle, New Orleans, and San Francisco were the leading ports for safety-related detentions. New Orleans, Los Angeles, and Houston were the leading ports of Major Control Actions (MCAs), which occur when a vessel is detained, denial of entry, or expelled for violating International Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS) or Maritime Transportation Security Act of 2002 (MTSA).
