COFR Applicants must submit all required documentation and fees to Vessel Certification at least 21 days in advance of their vessel entering US Waters. Transactions performed on this site are reviewed for accuracy, and it may take several days before a record or a change to a record appears on the ECOFR site. Users should submit applications as outlined in 33 CFR 138.50 and 33 CFR 138.70
