U.S. Coast Guard: Implementation dates for new series of CG-719 forms

The following bulletin was released by the U.S. Coast Guard's National Maritime Center and is available online.

On March 31, 2018, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approved the new CG-719 series of forms, which will replace all previous versions.

These new forms may be obtained electronically in a PDF fillable format at the Coast Guard's National Maritime Center (NMC) website. The Coast Guard will not stock the CG-719 series of forms in paper format.
