The International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea 1972 (COLREGS) are published by the USCG. COLREGs can also refer to the specific political line that divides inland waterways, which are subject to their own navigation rules, and coastal waterways, which are subject to international navigation rules. The COLREGs are derived from a multilateral treaty called the Convention on the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea.

In the United States, the rules for vessels navigating inland are published alongside differ slightly from the international rules.
