6/12/2014: Imposition of conditions of entry for certain vessels arriving to the United States from Nigeria

As a courtesy to our audience, Maritime Commons will provide a daily compilation of nationally-relevant Federal Register Notices. To provide comments for the public record, follow the Federal Register link for each individual notice. Please note, the Coast Guard cannot respond to comments on these notices outside of the Federal Register.

The Coast Guard published a Federal Register notice announcing that it will impose conditions of entry on vessels arriving from the Federal Republic of Nigeria with the exception of vessels arriving from certain ports.

As delegated, 46 U.S.C. section 70110 authorizes the Coast Guard to impose conditions of entry on vessels arriving in U.S. waters from ports that the Coast Guard has not found to maintain effective anti-terrorism measures.

View the Federal Register notice for further information and a list of ports that are exempted from the conditions of entry being imposed.

The policy announced in this notice will become effective June 26, 2014.
