7 Capt. David Condino April 22, 2008 VMSAS 2008 United States Coast Guard 7 COA Application/Issuance  STEP 1: The facility submits a COA application (CG-5401 A, B, or C) to the COTP for review.  STEP 2: The COTP reviews the applications against the standards set forth in the regulations.  STEP 3: If the application meets the requirements, the COTP conducts an inspection of the Port / Terminal and the reception facility to ensure the information provided on the application is accurate. In cases where the port / terminal contracts out a mobile truck or barge to provide reception facilities, these must also be inspected.  STEP 4: Particular attention should be paid for ports / terminals utilizing a common reception facility (i.e. a mobile truck provided annex I capabilities for all terminals within a port). In these cases, the reception facility must have the capability to service all terminals within the allowable timeframes as it may be easy for a single asset to become overwhelmed during busy periods.  STEP 5: If all is in order, issue a signed COA. The Port / Terminal maintains a copy of their signed COA and submitted application forms in their Operations Manual.  STEP 6: The COTP ensures MISLE is correctly updated to accurately reflect the information contained on the COA for each affected Port / Terminal (facility).
