The COTP or OCMI may issue a suspension order to suspend transfer operations to the vessel or facility operator when the COTP or OCMI finds there is a condition requiring action to prevent the discharge or threat of discharge of oil or hazardous material, or when the COTP or OCMI is unable to verify compliance with the regulations through an inspection. A suspension order:
(a) May be effective immediately;
(b) Is issued in writing unless it is effective immediately and then it may be issued orally and followed up in writing;
(c) Includes a statement of each condition requiring correction to—
(1) Prevent the discharge of oil or hazardous material; or
(d) Is withdrawn when the COTP, OCMI, or District Commander, as applicable, determines that the condition requiring action to prevent the discharge or threat of discharge of oil or hazardous material has been corrected or no longer exists.
