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 notice in the Federal Register announcing that the Chemical Transportation Advisory Committee and its subcommittees will meet on August 19, 20 and 21, 2014, in Arlington, VA, to discuss the safe and secure marine transportation of hazardous materials. The meetings will be open to the public.

The committee acts solely in an advisory capacity to the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security through the Commandant of the Coast Guard and the Deputy Commandant for Operations on matters relating to safe and secure marine transportation of hazardous materials activities insofar as they relate to matters within the United States Coast Guard’s jurisdiction. The committee advises, consults with, and makes recommendations reflecting its independent judgment to the Secretary.

View the Federal Register notice for details on how to register as well as the full agenda of the meeting and subcommittee meetings.
