CBP requirement for vessels lightering to extinction at Bigstone anchorage below

As you might be aware, due to the construction at Fort Mifflin, a number of vessels will be lightering to extinction in the Sector Delaware Bay Captain of the Port zone without going to berth. CBP has provided agents and vessels options immigration requirements. If one of your vessels encounters this situation and chooses to disembark the crewmembers from the vessel to complete their clearance checks with CBP, the USCG requests the vessel submit a plan to our office containing the following information:

1. A list of crew members and positions for those that will be absent from the vessel at the same time.

2. The estimated length of time the crewmembers will be ashore.

3. Will the vessel be conducting cargo or lightering operations in conjunction with sending crewmembers ashore?

4. A statement from the Master stating the vessel's plan is in accordance with the vessel's company policies, the Safety Management System, Work/Rest Hour Requirements, 33 CFR 164.19 Requirements for Vessels at Anchor, and STCW including, but not limited to, STCW A-VIII/2, Part 4, paragraph 51 and STCW-A VIII/5.

Please submit all plans to d05-smb-secdelbay-portstate@uscg.mil. We will review the plans as quickly as possible, however, please note that this could take some time so please submit them as soon as possible.  Once the plan has been reviewed, a member of my staff will email you back with our response.

Maintaining the safety of the crew, the safety of the vessel and the safety of the port is the USCG's top priority.  If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the Port State Control Branch at (215) 271-4887 during normal business hours or the Command Center at (215) 271-4807. Please feel free to contact me with any questions as well.

Thank you.

Best Regards,
