Are you tired of getting three different answers to the same regulatory question?
Do you know that following an individual inspector’s opinions on what is correct (or OK) does not mean you are in compliance if the opinion is in conflict with written directives of the agency?
Did you know the Coast Guard’s official policy is that it supports industry’s exercise of appeal of decisions made by its members?
“The exercise of appeal is a right we strongly support. Questions, differences of professional opinion, and appeals are normal and improve the conduct of business. We must be as accepting of these as praise. Attempt to resolve problems at the lowest level possible and be resourceful in doing so.” — ADM Thad Allen, Commandant U.S. Coast Guard
