NMC transitioning to new CG-719 series of forms

The following is text of a news release from the U.S. Coast Guard:

(MARTINSBURG, W.Va.) — On March 31, 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, https://www.uscg.mil/nmc. The Coast Guard will not stock the CG-719 series of forms in paper format.

A transition period has been established which will provide mariners the flexibility to apply for a credential using both the old or new forms as they adapt to the new formats. The table below lists the form numbers impacted by OMB’s recent approval and their implementation policy. After Dec. 31, the NMC will no longer accept previous form versions.

If you have any questions or concerns, visit the NMC website or contact the NMC Customer Service Center by e-mailing IASKNMC@uscg.mil, by using the NMC online chat system, or by calling 1-888-IASKNMC (427-5662).
