Shipping Regulation

What this service is:

Shipping Regulation is the only comprehensive reference of its kind covering federal regulation of the ocean liner shipping industry. A single systematically organized set of volumes puts at your fingertips the experience and knowledge amassed in decades of continuous publication by Bloomberg BNA. Maritime practitioners and agencies have depended on Shipping Regulation to deliver pertinent, accurate, up-to-date answers to their shipping law questions ever since its inception in 1961. You will find such authoritative information even more valuable in today’s rapidly changing, increasingly deregulated business environment.

What it helps you do:

  • Be up to date on the most significant shipping decisions
  • Get full text of final decisions by the Federal Maritime Commission (FMC), the Maritime Administration (MarAd), and the Surface Transportation Board (STB) when exercising its authority over maritime matters.
  • Gain insight with full text of interlocutory rulings, procedural rulings, and initial decisions, giving you a complete "cradle to grave" picture of each proceeding.
  • Stay informed with the comprehensive collection of shipping-related statutes, from the Shipping Act of 1916 to date as well as Bloomberg BNA’s exclusive library of topical digests outlining every significant shipping law holding since 1916.
  • Quickly stay informed with full text of FMC, MarAd, and STB regulations, updated regularly to reflect the latest rulemakings.
  • Rely on our Finding Aids, including numerous tables providing quick, precise access to information within Shipping Regulation; cross reference tables providing citation to agency reporters, general law reporters, and regulatory and statutory compilations; and a master index for topical research.
