Reference For Facility Inspection

  • Auxiliary Vessel Examiner Manual, COMDTINST M16796.2E.

  • Vessel Safety Manual (COMDTINST 16796.8) is for non-facilities.

  • USCG Auxiliary Facilities Information Sheet for OPFACs


OPFAC Inspections

  • An OPFAC requires an annual inspection.

  • Inspections must be performed by a currently certified USCG Auxiliary Vessel Examiner.


Auxiliary / Operational Ensign

  • Any Auxiliairist may fly the blue ensign on their private vessel, as long as it has passed a standard VSC.

  • Only an OPFAC under orders may fly the orange and white operational ensign.


Inspection & Offer for Use Forms (ANSC 7003 / 7008)

  • Outline the requirements for an Operational Vessel (7003) and PWC (7008) Facility Inspection.

  • Make sure that you are using the most current version of the forms.

  • Requires the Owner(s), VE, & DIRAUX signatures.


Inspection & Offer for Use Forms (ANSC 7003 / 7008)

  • Upon successful completion of inspection, no decal is affixed to facility.

  • Decal will be sent from DIRAUX as required after final approval.


Form 7003 (version 06-11/pg.1)

  • Sections I, II, & III completed by Owner(s).

  • Owner(s) sign and initial Section III.

  • Section IV completed by VE.

  • Section V completed by DIRAUX.

  • Section IV completed by VE.

  • Section V completed by DIRAUX.


Form 7008 (version 06-11/pg.2)

  • Sections VI & VII completed by VE.

  • Section VIII completed by Owner(s) and initialed at bottom.


Common Errors

  • On Form 7003 and 7008, Sections III & VII, ensure the owner(s) initial the form on the appropriate lines.

  • Always check with your respective District for additional requirements.


Common Errors

  • OPFAC markings are in accordance with the Operational Policy Manual COMDTINST M16798.3E (Chapter 3).

  • Towing gear is inspected for fitness, size, and function.

  • Owners not initialing the trailering line in Section III – MUST be initialed if trailerable or not.


Reminder

  • OPFACs must have:

    • Two extra PFDs

    • One extra fire extinguisher


Credit for Inspection

  • Report passed OPFAC inspections on 7038 under Vessel Facility Inspections.

  • Report failed OPFAC inspection as a regular VSC on 7038.


In Summary

  • Operational Facilities set the example for safety standards.

  • As a VE, ensure ALL Auxiliary Operational Facilities are the safest they can be.


In Summary

  • Anytime someone comes aboard a vessel facility (QE, FC, crew, etc.), the mission is at risk of being aborted if any of the required items are not available and in proper working order.
