PART 706—CERTIFICATIONS AND EXEMPTIONS UNDER THE INTERNATIONAL REGULATIONS FOR PREVENTING COLLISIONS AT SEA, 1972


Contents
§706.1   Purpose of regulations.
§706.2   Certifications of the Secretary of the Navy under Executive Order 11964 and 33 U.S.C. 1605.
§706.3   Exemptions by the Secretary of the Navy under Executive Order 11964.

Authority: 33 U.S.C. 1605.

§706.1   Purpose of regulations.

(a) All ships are warned that, when U.S. naval vessels are met in international waters, certain navigational lights and sound-signalling appliances of some naval vessels may vary from the requirements of the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea, 1972 (33 U.S.C. foll. section 1602 (1982)), as to number, position, range, or arc of visibility of lights, as well as to the disposition and characteristics of sound-signalling appliances. Those differences are necessitated by reason of the special construction or purpose of the naval ships. An example is the aircraft carrier where the two masthead lights are considerably displaced from the center or keel line of the vessel when viewed from ahead. Certain other naval vessels cannot comply with the horizontal separation requirements for masthead lights, and the two masthead lights on even large naval vessels will thus appear to be crowded together when viewed from a distance. Naval vessels may also have unorthodox navigational light arrangements or characteristics when seen either underway or at anchor.

(b) Naval vessels may also be expected to display certain other lights. These lights include, but are not limited to, different colored rotating beacons, different colored fixed and rotary wing aircraft landing signal lights, red aircraft warning lights, and red or blue contour approach lights on replenishment-type ships. These lights may be shown in combination with the navigational lights.

(c) During peacetime naval maneuvers, naval ships, alone or in company, may also dispense with showing any lights, though efforts will be made to display lights on the approach of shipping.

(d) Executive Order 11964 of January 19, 1977, and 33 U.S.C. 1605 provide that the requirements of the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea, 1972, as to the number, position, range, or arc of visibility of lights or shapes, as well as to the disposition and characteristics of sound-signalling appliances, shall not apply to a vessel of the Navy where the Secretary of the Navy shall find and certify that, by reason of special construction or purpose, it is not possible for such vessel to comply fully with the provisions without interfering with the special function of the vessel.

(e) Executive Order 11964 also provides that the Secretary of the Navy is authorized to exempt, in accordance with Rule 38 of the International Regulations for preventing Collisions at Sea, 1972, any vessel, or class of vessels, the keel of which is laid, or which is at a corresponding stage of construction, before July 15, 1977, from full compliance with the International Regulations, provided that such vessel, or class of vessels, complies with the requirements of the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea, 1960.

(f) This part consolidates and codifies certifications and exemptions granted by the Secretary of the Navy under Executive Order 11964 and 33 U.S.C. 1605. It has been determined that, because of their special construction or purpose, the vessels and classes of vessels listed in this part cannot comply fully with all of the requirements of the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea, 1972.

[42 FR 36434, July 14, 1977, as amended at 42 FR 48876, Sept. 26, 1977; 45 FR 43165, June 26, 1980; 52 FR 4770, Feb. 17, 1987]

§706.2   Certifications of the Secretary of the Navy under Executive Order 11964 and 33 U.S.C. 1605.

The Secretary of the Navy hereby finds and certifies that each vessel listed in this section is a naval vessel of special construction or purpose, and that, with respect to the position of the navigational lights listed in this section, it is not possible to comply fully with the requirements of the provisions enumerated in the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea, 1972, without interfering with the special function of the vessel. The Secretary of the Navy further finds and certifies that the navigational lights in this section are in the closest possible compliance with the applicable provisions of the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea, 1972.

Table Four

1. Ships other than aircraft carrier types (CV, CVN, LHA, LHD, and LPH) may not simultaneously exhibit the masthead lights required by Rule 27(b)(iii) and the lights required by Rule 27(b)(i) for vessels restricted in their ability to maneuver when such simultaneous exhibition will present a hazard to their own safe operations. In those instances, the lights required by Rule 27(b)(i) will be exhibited. Ships conducting flight operations also may not exhibit the stern light required by Rule 27(b)(iii).

2. To provide all-round visibility, the lights required by Rules 27 (a) and (b) will consist of two lights, one light port and one light starboard on the mast or superstructure at each location in the vertical array.

3. The second masthead light required by Rule 23(a)(ii) and the lights and shapes required by Rules 24, 27, and 30(d)(i) are not displayed by submarines.

4. On mine warfare type ships the masthead lights will not always be above and clear of the minesweeping lights, as is required by Annex I, Section 2(f). The positions of the masthead lights with relation to the minesweeping lights are as follows:

5. The masthead light required by Rule 23(a)(i) and Annex I, Paragraph 3(d), is not located in the forward part of the vessel on the CFPM Class, CSP Class, SLWT Class, and WT Class.

6. On the following ships the arc of visibility of the after masthead light required by Rule 23(a)(ii) and Annex I, section 2(f) may be obstructed from the right ahead on certain naval ships as follows: USS MAKIN ISLAND (LHD 8)—5°17.

7. On the following ships the arc of visibility of the forward masthead light required by Rule 23(a)(i) may be obstructed through 1.6° arc of visibility at the points 021° and 339° relative to the ship's head.

9. On LCAC-class amphibious vessels, full compliance with Rules 21(a), 21(b), and 22(b), and Annex I, section 2(a)(i), 72 COLREGS, cannot be obtained. Tables One and Two of section 706.2 provide the dimensions of closest possible compliance of LCAC-class amphibious vessels with the aforementioned rules. The following paragraph details the specific dimensions of closest possible compliance and the basis for certification by the Secretary of the Navy that full compliance with the aforementioned rules is not obtainable.

In LCAC-class amphibious vessels, there are permanent and temporary masts. The permanent masthead light is located 5.26 meters athwartship to port of centerline 5.49 meters above the hull. The temporary masthead light is located 3.98 meters athwartship to starboard of centerline, 4.16 meters in height above the hull. The temporary masthead light is displayed in lieu of the permanent masthead light only when LCAC-class amphibious vessels are operating with amphibious assault vessels. When operating in this mode, the sidelights are displayed at a height greater than three-quarters of the height of the temporary masthead light. The sidelights are located on top of the port and starboard deckhouses to permit the required unobstructed arcs of visibility and are 3.28 meters above the hull, resulting in a vertical separation between those lights and the temporary masthead light of 0.78 meters. Because of the minimal vertical separation between the sidelights and the temporary masthead light and the luminous intensity of the temporary light, the sidelights on these vessels may not be distinguishable by the naked eye at the 2-mile range required by Rule 22(b).

The arc of visibility of the temporary masthead light required by rule 21(a) may be obstructed at the following angles relative to the LCAC's heading, from 37.00 degrees thru 90.00 degrees up to a distance of 112.5 meters from the craft and from 276.75 degrees thru 277.25 degrees.

10. [Reserved]

11. On USS DOLPHIN (AGSS 555) the masthead light will be visible at a distance of 4.3 nautical miles and the sidelights will be visible at a distance of 2 nautical miles.

12.-13. [Reserved]

14. The following harbor tugs are equipped with a hinged mast. When the mast is in the lowered position as during a towing alongside or pushing operation, the two masthead lights required by Rule 24(c), and the all around lights required by Rule 27(b)(i) will not be shown; however, an auxiliary masthead light not meeting with Annex I, section 2(a)(i) height requirement will be exhibited.
