Updated Memorandum of Understanding between the Coast Guard and the National Cargo Bureau

May 18, 2024


The U.S. Coast Guard recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the National Cargo Bureau (NCB) that reaffirmed their longstanding relationship focused on the safety of hazardous material shipments through ports and at sea. Rear Admiral Wayne Arguin, the Assistant Commandant for Prevention Policy, and Mr. Ian Lennard, the NCB President, signed the MOU at Coast Guard Headquarters in Washington, D.C. on May 8, 2024.  The updated MOU continues to encourage port-level coordination between the Coast Guard and NCB while adding new responsibilities for sharing trend analysis and other information that can aid risk-based container targeting efforts and investigations.
