19 Puget Sound Harbor Safety Committee PARTNERSHIP FOR SUCCESS The informal organizational structure and mutual cooperation of its members have allowed HSC to become the ideal model for balancing the needs of various interests in the marine environment whether they are economic, environmental recreational, regulatory or national defense.

20 What are Standards of Care (SOC)?!!! procedures and practices, beyond regulatory requirements, that experienced and prudent maritime professionals follow to ensure safe, secure, efficient and environmentally responsible maritime operations.!!! are good marine practices that are developed and published to provide a guide for maritime professionals to consider and incorporate into their decision making process.!!! are not regulations and thus not enforceable. In some cases, they are not the correct action to take. Alternative procedures may be more appropriate.!! Mariners should be mindful that if they are involved in a maritime incident when not following relevant Standards of Care they could be subject to legal action based on a rebuttable presumption of negligence.!! These SOCs are clearly not all inclusive. They complement the laws and regulations and should they seem to conflict with law or regulation, the law or regulation is always superior.

21 Pacific States/Bri5sh Columbia Oil Spill Task Force West Coast Offshore Traffic Risk Management Project Findings and Recommenda5ons regarding the Distance Offshore Risk Factor 1. The West Coast Offshore Vessel Traffic Risk Management Project Workgroup finds that the risk of a grounding/collision generally increases the closer a vessel transits to shore. Using a rela5ve ranking/risk- indexing model that incorporated nine risk factors (volume of oil/vessel design factor, driu factor, higher collision factor, distance offshore factor, weather/seasonal factor, tug availability factor, coastal route/density factor, historical casualty factor, and environmental sensi5vity factor), the Workgroup mapped areas of higher risk along the West Coast of Canada and the United States. The resulhng higher risk area line was generally no more than 25 miles from land along the enhre West Coast, except off Southeast Alaska, off Northwest BC, and off Point Arguello in California, where it extended to 50 nm offshore in those cases. The workgroup finds that vessels transi5ng within these higher risk areas have a greater poten5al for a grounding due to one or more of the risk criteria than if they transited offshore of these areas. 2. The West Coast Offshore Vessel Traffic Risk Management Project Workgroup recommends that, where no other management measure such as Areas to Be Avoided (ATBAs), Traffic Separa5on Schemes (TSSs), or recommended tracks already exist, vessels 300 gross tons or larger transihng coastwise anywhere between Cook Inlet and San Diego should voluntarily stay a minimum distance of 25 nauhcal miles (nm) offshore. 3. For the sake of consistency with exis5ng agreements, the Workgroup further recommends that, where no other management measures such as ATBAs, TSSs, Tanker Exclusion Zones, or recommended tracks already exist, tank ships laden with crude oil or persistent petroleum products and transihng coastwise anywhere between Cook Inlet and San Diego should voluntarily stay a minimum distance of 50 nm offshore. 4. Vessels transi5ng short distances between adjacent ports should seek rouhng guidance as needed from the local Captain of the Port or VTS authority for that area. 5. In addi5on, the Workgroup recognizes that laden tank barges operated by members of the American Waterways Operators have agreed to a voluntary policy of transihng at least 25 miles offshore of the US West Coast. The Council of Marine Carriers in BriHsh Columbia has commided to a similar voluntary policy for its laden tank barges transi5ng in the open ocean off the West Coast of Canada, but also maintains the longstanding prac5ce of tugs seeking refuge in the many inlets available along the BC coastline which may be the safer ac5on under certain circumstances The Workgroup further recommends that these voluntary minimum distances offshore be communicated to mariners by placing the text of these recommenda5ons in the Coast Pilot and Sailing DirecHons for the West Coast, and also by placing notes on the appropriate nauhcal charts, 8. Regarding the areas where the Higher Risk zones go beyond 25 nm, the West Coast Offshore Vessel Traffic Risk Management Workgroup finds that various factors mi5gate the risk in these areas. For instance, the coastal transporta5on trade along Bri5sh Columbia and SE Alaska is primarily by tug and tows. A number of powerful poten5al "rescue tugs" are frequently transi5ng through these areas as a result of this unique trading paeern. These transi5ng tugs supplement the rescue tugs located in homeports as used in this study.
