Discrepancy Reporting

Whenever reporting a discrepancy on an ATON, PATON or Bridge, remember that there are always two reports that need to be made:

  1. Discrepancy Reports for the Coast Guard - This report informs the gold side about the problem with the aid so they can get it fixed. It does not record your time in AuxData, so see item #2 below on how to do that. The discrepancy report should utilize the on-line system (PATON and Bridge reports). Critical discrepancies should also be called into the nearest Station by landline or radio.

  2. AuxData Reporting - always submit a 7030 Mission Activity Report (Unit/Individual) to report the time expended, and the number of aids that were observed discrepant or watching properly. This is the report that gets you AuxData credit for the work, but since AuxData is an Auxiliary system,  it doesn't tell the gold side about any problems with the aid - see #1 above.

For each discrepancy reported to the gold side, only one member takes credit on the 7030 (i.e., do not list multiple members on the 7030 (Unit/Individual) report, and do not submit multiple 7030s for the same discrepancy).

Do not report this NS work on the patrol's 7030 (Boat)! The patrol's 7030 gets the entire crew credit for their underway time. Your separate 7030 (Unit/Individual) gives you the credit for your NS report.


Report Routing:

  • 7030 Mission Activity Reports go to your FSO-IS for recording in AuxData. This gets your time entered into AuxData. You also need to get the problem report to the Coast Guard - see below.

  •  ATON Discrepancy  Reports  go directly to your Sector ADSO-NS, with copies sent to your FSO-NS and SO-NS. While you always copy your FSO and SO, you send the original report directly to the ADSO-NS to expedite the processing. The ADSO-NS interfaces with the ANT team or Sector ATON office to report the discrepancies to the Coast Guard. The original report should be sent to as shown below.

  •  PATON Verification/Discrepancy Reports either go via the on-line system (if you have been trained and have a login), or via paper reports directly to your Sector ADSO-NS, with copies sent to your FSO-NS and SO-NS. While you always copy your FSO and SO, you send the original report directly to the ADSO-NS to expedite the processing. The original report should be sent to as shown below.

  •  Non-Permitted PATON Reports go directly to your Sector ADSO-NS, with copies sent to your FSO-NS and SO-NS. While you always copy your FSO and SO, you send the original report directly to the ADSO-NS to expedite the processing. The original report should be sent to as shown below.

  • Bridge Discrepancy Reports should be entered using the online Bridge Discrepancy Reporting System. See the Reporting System web page for more information. When using the online reporting system, be sure to print a copy of your report and send it to your FSO-NS and SO-NS.

Contact ADSO-NS Bridge, Chris Howe, if you are not able to use the online reporting system.

The ADSO-NS Bridge interfaces with the CG Bridge Office to report the discrepancies to the Coast Guard. The original report goes to:

ADSO-NS   Chris Howe

  • Chart Update Reports get sent directly to the DSO-NS, with copies sent to your FSO-NS and SO-NS. While you always copy your FSO and SO, you send the original report directly to the DSO to expedite the processing. The DSO-NS  interfaces with NOAA to report the update. The original report goes to:

            DSO-NS Alfred Olsen
