Abstract/Citation: Amendments to tables of the Coast Guard summarizing the minimum requirements for the carriage of liquid, liquefied gas, or compressed gas hazardous materials in bulk by tankship. These amendments are necessary to align the minimum requirements in the table with those approved by the International Maritime Organization for inclusion in its Chemical Codes applicable to tankships, and should result in a reduction in maritime pollution from tankships.
