The Coast Guard owns and operates this system to: (1) manage the issuance of credentials to Merchant Mariners and process merchant mariner applications; (2) produce merchant mariner credentials; (3) track merchant mariner credentials issued by the Coast Guard; (4) track the status of merchant mariners with respect to service, training, credentials, and qualifications, related to the operation of commercial vessels; (5) qualify merchant mariners for benefits and services administered by other agencies; and (6) perform merchant mariner call-ups related to national security. The records include the credential, background check, and medical status on each U.S. Mariner and World War II Merchant Mariner Veteran. USCG conducted this PIA because MMLD collects and uses PII.
