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 posted a notice requesting the approval of a revision to the collection of information for plan approval and records for U.S. and foreign tank vessels carrying oil in bulk. The Coast Guard is inviting comments from owners and operators of vessels.
This information collection aids the Coast Guard in determining if a vessel complies with certain safety and environmental protection standards. Plans and records for construction or modification of U.S. or foreign vessels submitted and/or maintained on board are needed for compliance with these standards.
View the Federal Register notice for further information.
In particular, the Coast Guard would appreciate comments addressing:
(1) The practical utility of the Collections;
(2) The accuracy of the estimated burden of the Collections;
(3) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of information subject to the Collections;
(4) Ways to minimize the burden of the Collections on respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.
All comments and related material must be submitted on or before September 5, 2014.
