The Port State Information Exchange (PSIX) system contains vessel specific information derived from the US Coast Guard's Marine Information Safety and Law Enforcement System (MISLE). The information contained in PSIX represents a weekly snapshot of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) data compiled within the MISLE database.
This database contains approved or certified equipment by the Commandant of the US Coast Guard for use on commercial vessels and recreational boats, for the reference of ship-owners, operators, builders, and other persons affected by the Marine Inspection and Navigation Laws and Regulations.
The Online Incident Investigation Report provides you with information regarding maritime incidents investigated by the U.S. Coast Guard under Part D of Title 46 of the U.S. Code. These published reports are limited to reportable marine casualties, as defined in Section 4.05 of Title 46 of the Code of Federal Regulations, that were closed after October 2002. Additional reports, those closed prior to November 2002 may be added in the future.

The information published herein complies with Federal laws designed to protect from disclosure personal and private information about members of the public. In particular, the Privacy Act (5 U.S.C. 552a) and the Health Insurance Portability And Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996 (P.L. 104-191) prohibit the Coast Guard from disclosing certain information to the public.
This online searchable database contains a listing of U.S. Ports and Terminals holding valid MARPOL Certificates of Adequacy (COAs). U.S. Ports and Terminals are issued Certificates of Adequacy (COAs) as evidence that their facilities meet the requirements of Annexes I, II, and V of the 1978 Protocol to the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (MARPOL 73/78).


The U.S. Coast Guard and the United States is not liable for any loss, damage, or harm resulting from the use of information contained in this database, or for any reliance on its accuracy, completeness, or timeliness.
