  §  80.1005   Inspection of station.

   The bridge-to-bridge radiotelephone station will be inspected on
   vessels subject to regular inspections pursuant to the requirements of
   Parts II and III of Title III of the Communications Act, the Safety
   Convention or the Great Lakes Agreement at the time of the regular
   inspection. If after such inspection, the Commission determines that
   the Bridge-to-Bridge Act, the rules of the Commission and the station
   license are met, an endorsement will be made on the appropriate
   document. The validity of the endorsement will run concurrently with
   the period of the regular inspection. Each vessel must carry a
   certificate with a valid endorsement while subject to the
   Bridge-to-Bridge Act. All other bridge-to-bridge stations will be
   inspected from time to time. An inspection of the bridge-to-bridge
   station on a Great Lakes Agreement vessel must normally be made at the
   same time as the Great Lakes Agreement inspection is conducted by a
   technician holding one of the following: A General Radiotelephone
   Operator License, a GMDSS Radio Maintainer's License, a Radiotelegraph
   Operator License, a Second Class Radiotelegraph Operator's Certificate,
   or a First Class Radiotelegraph Operator's Certificate. Additionally,
   the technician must not be the vessel's owner, operator, master, or an
   employee of any of them. Ships subject to the Bridge-to-Bridge Act may,
   in lieu of an endorsed certificate, certify compliance in the station
   log required by section 80.409(f).
