Recently, ASTA has been working to develop recommended procedures for conducting rig inspections.  We are doing this at the invitation of the USCG, intending that this could provide an alternative to their imposition of a REQUIREMENT that operators hire independent third party inspectors to inspect their rigs

  This is important to all inspected vessel operators – the results of our discussion may potentially have lasting impact on the USCG inspection process as it pertains to sailing rigs.

For those staying for the Safety Forum tomorrow, click below for the PDF of the Rig Inspection Protocol which will be covered during the session.  This is important to all inspected vessel operators – the results of our discussion may potentially have lasting impact on the USCG inspection process as it pertains to sailing rigs.We look forward to Members’ thoughts and reactions during the safety Forum on 7 November.
