The Virgin Islands Port Authority (VIPA) Board of Governors has amended its Marine Tariff and VIPA’s Marine Rules & Regulations regarding commercial vessel requirements by adding:

SECTION III Part F – Docking Fees: Commercial vessels moored at VIPA’s facilities must have a current, valid Certificate of Inspection or Certificate of Documentation, along with $1 million in liability insurance.

The public is invited to a hearing at 6 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 20, to discuss the change to the tariff and the rules and regulations. The hearing will be held in the Crown Bay Center conference room at the Austin “Babe” Monsanto Marine Terminal, 161-A Sub Base, St. Thomas, and via teleconference in VIPA’s conference room on the second floor of the Henry E. Rohlsen Airport Terminal on St. Croix.
