2011 Marine Chemists Directory A Directory of NFPA Certificated Marine Chemists Including Rules for the Certification and Recertification of Marine Chemists As revised 13 June 2011 One Batterymarch Park, Quincy, MA 02169-7471 National Fire Protection Association® Executive Office, One Batterymarch Park, Quincy, MA 02169-7471 NFPA, Publisher of this Marine Chemists Directory, was organized in 1896 to promote the science and improve the methods of fire protection and fire prevention. It is a nonprofit, educational, voluntary-membership organiza- tion recognized internationally as a clearinghouse for information on fire prevention. It is also recognized internationally as an authoritative source for fire-loss experience. Membership in NFPA is open to anyone interested in fire-loss reduction. Among the many membership benefits are a vote in the standards-making activities of the Association; copies of the bimonthly NFPA Journal; and copies of NFPA Update, issued bimonthly. For complete details on mem- bership, write the Association, One Batterymarch Park, Quincy, MA 02169- 7471 or call (617) 770-3000.

The list is published annually by the National Fire Pro- tection Association (NFPA). Any questions regarding this Directory should be brought to the attention of the Marine Field Service at NFPA at tele- phone number 617-984-7418 or by email to email@example.com. The United States Coast Guard and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) require that a Certificate issued by a Marine Chem- ist be obtained before hot work or fire producing operations can be carried out in certain spaces aboard a marine vessel. The appropriate U.S. Coast Guard Regulations are contained in 46 CFR 35.01-1(c) (1), 71.60-1(c) (1), 91.50-1(c) (1), 115.710 (b) (1), 126.160 (c) (1), 167.30-10(c) (1), 176.710 (b) (1), and 189.50-1(c) (1). The appropriate OSHA regulations are con- tained in 29 CFR 1915.14. In complying with both the U.S. Coast Guard and OSHA regulations, the Marine Chemist applies the requirements contained in NFPA 306, Stan- dard for the Control of Gas Hazards on Vessels. This standard describes the conditions that must exist aboard a marine vessel. A survey by the Ma- rine Chemist ensures that these conditions are satisfied. In addition, a Marine Chemist, by virtue of his or her training and continu- ous professional upgrading through the Certification program administered by the Marine Chemist Qualification Board, is able to perform similar evaluations on other than marine vessels where an unsafe environment exists for workers or hot work is contemplated on a system that might con- tain residues of a flammable or combustible product. Such latter work, if other than shipyard or related employment, would be outside the scope of NFPA 306. This directory provides a listing of the Marine Field Service Advisory Com- mittee, Marine Chemist Qualification Board and NFPA Technical Commit- tee on Gas Hazards as organized at the time this directory was published. Since that time changes in membership may have occurred. 2 MARINE CHEMIST DIRECTORY 2011 NFPA COMMITTEE PERSONNEL Marine Field Service Advisory Committee Lamar E. Labauve, Chairman Joseph J.

Section VIII. Revocation and Renewal of Certificates A. Certificates issued shall be valid for a period of five (5) years or such reduced or extended time or times as is considered appropriate by the Board unless the Certificate is sooner canceled due to receipt by the Board of evidence of the Marine Chemist's inability to apply consistently and safely the procedures and judgments required of Marine Chemists. B. The Board reserves the right to suspend revoke or cancel the Certificate issued to a Marine 31 MARINE CHEMIST DIRECTORY 2011 Appendix A Chemist at any time. The Board shall notify the Marine Chemist of such action by mailing the notice to the last known address of the Marine Chemist. The following are among the causes for which a Certificate may be suspended revoked or canceled. 1. Failure to comply with any of the foregoing requirements for reporting and notification. 2. Practicing as a Marine Chemist while the Chemist's ability to practice is impaired by alcohol, drugs, physical disability, fatigue or mental instability, or if the Chemist is habitually intoxicated by or engaging in the unlawful use of alcohol, narcotics, barbiturates, amphetamines, hallu‐ cinogens, or other controlled substances having similar effects. 3. If, after examination of the facts of any complaint filed with or coming to the attention of the Board, it is the opinion of the Board that the Marine Chemist is no longer qualified to be certificated. 4. Falsification of information on the application for certification and recertification. 5. Failure to adhere to the Standard and its official interpretation. C. Upon receipt of information or a written complaint regarding an alleged misconduct or violation of the Rules for Certification and Recertification on the part of a Marine Chemist, the Secretary of the Board shall forward such information to the Board. After consideration of said information or written complaint and upon a review of any and all relevant information, the Board may take appro‐ priate action under these Rules. D. Where a suspension, revocation or cancellation may be contemplated by the Board, the Marine Chemist involved shall receive notice and an opportunity for a hearing before the Marine Chemist Qualification Board prior to suspension, revocation or cancellation. However, in circumstances in which information has come to the attention of the Board which gives evidence of the Marine Chemist's inability to apply the procedures and judgments required of Marine Chemists or where information has come to the attention of the Board which indicates that there may be a cause for suspension or cancellation of a Marine Chemist's Certificate, the Board may suspend the Marine Chemist's Certificate immediately and prior to a hearing, if the public interest and public health and safety require such action and the Board makes such a determination. In such case the Marine Chemist who has been suspended shall be promptly notified of such action by a notice being mailed to the last known address of the Marine Chemist. Thereafter, the Marine Chemist shall be afforded a hearing within ten (10) days of said suspension. Should the Marine Chemist request an adjourn‐ ment of the hearing date, it may be granted at the discretion of the Board. E. In circumstances where a Marine Chemist is notified of the Board's intention to conduct a hear‐ ing concerning the suspension, revocation or cancellation of the Marine Chemist's Certificate, the Marine Chemist may be served, at the Board's discretion, with a request to produce documents and 32 MARINE CHEMIST DIRECTORY 2011 Appendix A any information relating to the Chemist’s activities. Failure to produce any requested infor‐ mation on a timely basis shall be sufficient grounds for suspension or cancellation at the discretion of the Board. F. Prior to the scheduled hearing, the Marine Chemist shall be given notice of the charges. The Marine Chemist shall be afforded an opportunity to be heard by the Board and an op‐ portunity to appear before the Board and present a defense. G. Appeal from action taken by the Marine Chemist Qualification Board may be brought directly to the National Fire Protection Association Board of Directors. Section IX.
