Marine Accident Reporting, Investigations, and Enforcement in the United States Coast Guard

Executive Summary

Our audit objective was to determine whether the USCG has adequate processes to investigate, take corrective actions, and enforce Federal regulations following reported marine casualties. The USCG does not have adequate processes to investigate, take corrective actions, and enforce Federal regulations related to the reporting of marine accidents. These conditions exist because the USCG has not developed and retained sufficient personnel, established a complete process with dedicated resources to address corrective actions, and provided adequate training to personnel on enforcement of marine accident reporting.
