Welcome to the USA!
Best Practices & Guidance > Welcome to the USA!


The American Club is pleased to present Welcome to the USA!  (updated February 2017) that summarizes key regulations of which shipowners should be aware when trading to and from the United States.  Members should also note that, in regard to most of these requirements, the Club also provides additional guidance, tools and services to assist them in achieving compliance.

Members are urged to liaise with their local agents in advance of trading to the United States for guidance and assistance in regard to the rules which may apply to them.  However, if there is anything further the Club can provide in particular cases, Members are invited to contact the Managers who will, as always, be pleased to help.
