Coast Guard Renewal Documentation: Your COD, Your Way

Does it feel like it’s time to file Coast Guard renewal documentation, but you aren’t sure? Have you felt like it sneaks up on you, and you’re worried that one of these years, you’re going to miss the deadline? Firstly, even if you miss the renewal deadline, all is not lost. That said, it’s far better to renew your documentation and stay in compliance than it is to go the reinstatement route. You can do all of this and more easily, simply, and in a matter of minutes at our site. 

Coast Guard Documentation Renewal in Minutes Flat

“Renewal” is, in all likelihood, the most common reason that someone uses our site. As such, you can find the “Renewal” link on the top left of our homepage. That said, “renewal” is so popular, it actually is our homepage. If you scroll down, you’ll find the form you need right there. You’ll find that we’ve actually marked the sections that absolutely have to be filled out so that you can save even more time. Our site is also mobile-optimized, so you can fill this form out from anywhere. All of this is done to make the entire process easier on vessel owners like you. 

Coast Guard Renewal Documentation for Years in Advance 

“Do I really have to renew my documentation every single year?” Yes. But, there is another way. If you go through our site, we can make it so that you can renew your documentation for up to five years in advance. That way, you don’t have to worry about deadlines, missing out, any of that. Moreover, you can do this when you file for your initial documentation, too, thus saving you even more time and peace of mind. 

Replacement and Reinstatement if Necessary 

If you lose your physical Certificate of Documentation, your documentation is no longer valid. Even if you have a picture or a copy, it’s not enough. Should that happen, however, we can help. Just file for a “replacement” through our site. If you do miss the renewal deadline, there is still a way to keep things going. In that case, what you’re going to want to do is to file for “reinstatement.” You can do that through our site as well. We want to make every step of the vessel documentation process easier, no matter which step you’re on.
