On Oct 2nd, Rear Admiral Nadeau, Assistant Commandant, Prevention Policy, signed change three to NVIC 02-95, Alternate Compliance Program.

The primary purpose of this change is to align the ACP with applicable International Maritime Organization(IMO) instruments, including the provisions of the International Code for Recognized Organizations (RO Code). The RO Code became effective on January 1, 2015, and serves as an international standard and consolidated instrument containing minimum criteria against which organizations are assessed towards authorization and oversight guidelines by flag States.

You can find NVIC 02-95 Change 3 revision to the Alternate Compliance Program on our website under Liquefied Gas as Fuel >> Alerts, Policy, Regs
