Function: Online function code: information Role: inapplicable Presentation form: Presentation form code: mapDigital Abstract: Regulated Navigation Areas (RNA���s) (outlined in 33 CFR Part 165) are water areas within a defined boundary for which regulations for vessels navigating within the area have been established. The District Commander can issue RNA���s to control vessel traffic in a place determined to have hazardous conditions. RNA���s usually prescribe what type or size of vessels may enter an area or in what manner they must navigate. RNA���s differ from safety and security zones in two respects. First, only District Commanders are authorized to establish RNA���s while Coast Guard Captains of the Port may not. Second, safety and security zones are typically transitory in nature, responsive to a temporary safety or security concern on the water. They are meant to control access to an area; but they could also be used to control access based on compliance with specified temporary operating conditions within the safety or security zone necessary for the purpose of the zone���s creation. RNA���s are usually created where a more permanent solution to a safety or environmental concern is required. They principally regulate the operation of vessels permitted inside the area, but also may establish control of access to an area if necessary. Purpose: To support ocean planning activities pursuant to the Executive Order Regarding the Ocean Policy to Advance the Economic, Security, and Environmental Interests of the United States, the Energy Policy Act, the National Environmental Policy Act, the Rivers and Harbors Act, and the Coastal Zone Management Act.
