The International Ice Patrol suspended operations from 1916 to 1919 to assist in World War 1 efforts.

In December 1942, based on then-existing war conditions and disruption to normal maritime commerce and practices in the North Atlantic, the president approved the recommendation of the Commandant of the Coast Guard for suspension of the International Service of Ice Observation and Ice Patrol. With the passing of these extraordinary conditions the IIP was resumed in 1946.
