8 AAC 80.030 - Certificates of inspection

Current through April 6, 2022

(a) The expiration date of a certificate of inspection issued under AS 18.60.340 will be shown on the certificate. The certificate remains valid until its stated expiration date so long as there is no break in insurance coverage on the vessel for which the certificate was issued.
(b) An insurance carrier assuming coverage for a vessel shall, within 30 days after assuming coverage, provide the department with either a notice of insurance or an insurance binder indicating the effective date of coverage, the location of the vessel, and the state vessel number assigned to it. The carrier shall provide the department with a copy of its initial inspection report if the certificate is due to expire. If the vessel does not have a state vessel number assigned to it, the special inspector for the insurance carrier shall assign it a number. A certificate of inspection will be processed by the department upon receipt of these items.
(c) If the insurance coverage for a vessel is transferred from one insurance carrier to another, the insurance carrier dropping coverage of the vessel shall, within 20 days after the expiration of coverage, provide the department with a notice of cancellation of coverage, stating the location of the vessel, its assigned state vessel number and the reason for cancellation of coverage.
(d) If requested on the notice of insurance or the insurance binder submitted under (b) or (c) of this section by an insurance carrier assuming coverage of a vessel, the department will provide the carrier with an updated computer information sheet for the covered vessel. The sheet will include the date on which the field inspection report forms for the next regular inspection will be sent to the carrier and a description of the vessel.
(e) If a notice of cancellation under (c) of this section is received by the department, and a notice of insurance or insurance binder indicating continuing coverage is not received within 40 days after the cancellation date, the department will make an inspection if a certificate is due to expire.
(f) Vessels not covered by insurance or a department-approved owner or user program, will be inspected by the department. A certificate of inspection for a vessel will be issued if, after inspection, the vessel is found to meet the requirements of AS 18.60.180 and this chapter.
