Virtual Hearing Information

 

Because of COVID-19, the United States Coast Guard (USCG)  has started holding “virtual hearings” for some of its proceedings.  Virtual hearings allow parties and witnesses to participate in hearings remotely, via video and/or phone.  When holding a virtual hearing, the USCG uses the Zoom for Government application.   It is important to be prepared and test your setup prior to the virtual hearing.  Please click on the below links to learn about the virtual hearings process:
