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 to the Federal Register announcing the review of the New York and New Jersey Area Contingency Plan, or the NY/NJ ACP, and is seeking public comment on the plan.

The NY/NJ ACP is a plan prepared by the New York and New Jersey Area Committee to define roles, responsibilities, resources and procedures necessary to respond to a myriad of spill response evolutions.

Comments and related material must either be submitted on or before October 10, 2014.
