TSMS Option Compliance Guide

AWO has released the TSMS Option Compliance Guide for member companies who choose to document compliance with the requirements of 46 CFR Subchapter M using the Towing Safety Management System, or TSMS, option. The guide is designed to help those members identify changes they may need to make to their company’s Responsible Carrier Program-based safety management system to ensure they are compliant with Subchapter M’s TSMS requirements, some of which are more specific than the requirements of the RCP. In addition, the guide highlights other Subchapter M requirements with which compliance can be facilitated through the use of a TSMS, including by documenting alternate compliance arrangements.
