Effective immediately, USCG facility inspectors are going to start using a new form for facility inspections. The new form, CG-835F, replaces CG-Form 835, “Vessel/Facility Inspection Requirements”. CG-835F is specifically formatted for facility inspections. There are no major changes to the new form or the information collected during the inspection.
Facility owners and operators may start seeing Coast Guard facility inspectors using the new form immediately, but some inspectors may still use the older CG-835 form during the transition.
