Title 46 published on 2015-12-02
The following are ALL rules, proposed rules, and notices (chronologically) published in the Federal Register relating to 46 CFR Part 97 after this date.
The Coast Guard announces that it has received approval from the Office of Management and Budget for an information collection request associated with the Cargo Securing Manuals interim rule we published in the Federal Register on May 9, 2016. In that rule, we stated the interim rule will impose new information collection requirements and that we would submit these new information collection requirements to OMB for its review and publish a document in the Federal Register announcing the results of OMB's review. OMB approved this new collection of information, entitled Cargo Securing Manuals, on June 23, 2016, and assigned it OMB control number 1625-0122.
The Coast Guard is issuing an interim rule to require U.S. and foreign self-propelled cargo vessels of 500 gross tons or more, traveling on international voyages and carrying cargo that is other than solid or liquid bulk cargo, to have cargo securing manuals (CSMs) on board. The rule also requires those vessels to comply with certain provisions of the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea, 1974 as amended (SOLAS), authorizes recognized classification societies or other approval authorities to review and approve CSMs on behalf of the Coast Guard; and prescribes when and how the loss or jettisoning of cargo at sea must be reported. The Coast Guard requests public comment on its intention to extend, in a subsequent final rule, this interim rule's requirement for vessel CSMs to self-propelled cargo vessels under 500 gross tons, if these vessels carry dangerous goods in packaged form on international voyages. This interim rule promotes the Coast Guard's maritime safety and stewardship (environmental protection) missions, helps fulfill U.S. treaty obligations, and could help prevent or mitigate the consequences of vessel cargo loss.
