103 References to Subchapter S, Parts 170 and 171 in Other Subchapters A caution with any major reorganization of Subchapter S is that there are many references to Subchapter S requirements in other parts of the CFR. These other parts would all need updating if Subchapter S is reorganized. Table F-1 provides examples of the many such references, so the magnitude of the issue can be appreciated.

On September 12, 2018, TRB released a letter report that reviews regulations and policy documents that establish vessel stability requirements for U.S. Flag vessels. The review, conducted at the request of the U.S. Coast Guard Office of Design and Engineering Standards, considers options to make and keep stability requirements current, align them better with international standards, and improve their consistency, clarity, and usability. In addition to identifying a series of promising options for these purposes, the report makes recommendations to the Coast Guard on coordinating with industry advisory groups and collecting, managing, and analyzing data to inform regulatory decisions.
