BoatWiki - Definitions

Definition


The United States Code, as it relates to vessel documentation, is a basic codification of those respective laws as established by congress. These are subsequently interpreted and expanded into the Code of Federal Regulations, which the National Vessel Documentation Center adopts as their administrative guidelines.

Analogies


The rules set forth in the United States Code are basically the same as those found in the respective Code of Federal Regulations.

Context


When congress passes legislation related to vessels, it is codified into the United States Code. This is known as the "raw" version of such laws. These are subsequently transcribed into the Code of Federal Regulations, which sets forth the their interpreted definitions. CFRs are more conducive to the administration of such laws.

Conclusion


Although the Code of Federal regulations can be used to obtain a basic understanding of vessel documentation regulations, it is best to utilize the respective Code of Federal Regulations.
