NOTES: The U.S. Coast Guard identifies vessels not in compliance with international conventions through examinations and boardings. If a vessel is not compliant, appropriate action is taken to eliminate any threat that vessels may pose to U.S. waters, ports, and citizens.

Examples of threats can include: oil leaks, improper repairs to lifeboats, inability to demonstrate proficiency in a fire drill, or failure to maintain document control.
