COSTA CONCORDIA - U.S. Coast Guard and NTSB to Take Part in Wreck Investigation

The U.S. Coast Guard, joined by the National Transportation Safety Board, will take part in the Italian investigation of the January 13 grounding of COSTA CONCORDIA. Joining non-U.S. investigations abroad is not unusual for the USCG; they also have a role with the International Maritime Organization (IMO) addressing global ecological, security, and safety issues.

Because two Americans died on COSTA CONCORDIA, the U.S. is joining the investigation under 46 USC 6101(g) and 6301 as a "substantially interested state," consistent with international law. Other countries that lost citizens are Germany, France, Spain, Peru, Hungary, and India.
