CSI: Offering Systems For Compliance With U.S. Coast Guard Requirements

Compliance Systems Inc. (CSI) says it has been helping the marine industry comply with U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) requirements since 1988.

Its approach to regulatory compliance is designed to reduce delays, increase safety and document good faith efforts in regards to ship safety and environmental precaution.

CSI offers compliance through spill contingency planning, pollution response training, third party safety audits, and drug & alcohol screening.

CSI says its "Total Compliance Program" has been successful at satisfying USCG regulations. Each member vessel is provided with a Compliance Kit containing a multilingual manual together with stamps, adhesive posters, diagrams and procedures designed to meet the specifications of the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations.

Upon enrollment, CSI conducts a preliminary inspection of the vessel and identifies problem areas which need immediate action to avoid possible USCG violations.

By attending USCG inspections, CSI says it can overcome potential problems as well as language constraints.

CSI has also developed an OPA 90 ShipBoard Pollution Response Training Program designed to provide "painless" OPA compliance.
