The Coast Guard has undertaken a review of all previously issued NVICs, Policy Letters and Guidance Letters related to the Mariner Credentialing Program to determine their current applicability. Effective June 30, 2010, the Coast Guard will be cancelling numerous Policy Letters and Guidance Documents that have been either superseded by regulation, time or other policy documents. A list of the policy letter and guidance documents that will be canceled, along with a list of the current references for each can be found at: http://www.uscg.mil/nmc/announcements/NMC POLICY LETTER 06-12-2010.pdf

They are also listed on the policy pages of the NMC’s website at: http://www.uscg.mil/nmc/policy_guidance_date.asp

The website links to these documents will be deactivated on 30 June 2010.
