|Monday, May 16, 2016, United States|
|NOAA has recently become aware that incomplete and otherwise inaccurate reproductions of the U.S. Coast Pilot are being offered for sale to consumers. Consumers need to be aware that such reproductions may not meet U.S. Coast Guard carriage requirements.How do you know if your copy of the U.S. Coast Pilots is incomplete and therefore out of compliance with Coast Guard safety regulations?
Unofficial U.S. Coast Pilots are generally easy to identify, and have exhibited errors.
Where do you get official copies of the United States Coast Pilot?
…NOAA is currently working to address any issues of improper trademark reproduction that may be associated with these unofficial reproductions of the U.S. Coast Pilot.
