This edition of the Coast Guard Journal of Safety at Sea, Proceedings of the Marine Safety Council is informally titled "Meeting the Challenges through a Risk-Based Approach". From the foreword by Rear Admiral Robert C. North, Assistant Commandant for Marine Safety & Environmental Protection: "Developing and implementing risk-based decision-making will provide for a better understanding of the maritime system, and thus help us make better decisions in our role as the nation.s maritime regulatory agency. These risk-based approaches will allow for an optimal use of existing resources, maximizing return on the taxpayers. investment. It will also provide for a more defensible budget with an ability to translate funding needs into expected decreases in fatalities, injuries, and pollution. Finally, the forward-looking techniques of risk-based decision-making will allow us to identify and address emerging trends that affect safety."
