RAC/REMPETIC-Caribe maintains focal points throughout the Caribbean.  Each State or Territory in the Wider Caribbean Region will appoint a focal point, typically from a Maritime Administration or Environmental Agency, to facilitate communications and participation in national or regional activities. It is essential to maintain the most accurate list of focal points for the entire region to use.
