What pollution liability certificate must be carried by certain ships in US waters?

A Certificate of Financial Responsibility (Water Pollution), often called a “COFR”, must be carried by ships of over 300 GT using the navigable waters of the US or any port or place subject to the jurisdiction of the US. Some US states (e. g. California) require (in addition) a State COFR if entering their waters.
