12/10/2014: Consolidated cruise ship security regulations

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 proposes to amend its regulations on cruise ship terminal security. The proposed regulations would provide detailed, flexible requirements for the screening of all baggage, personal items and persons—including passengers, crew and visitors—intended for carriage on a cruise ship.

The proposed regulations would standardize security of cruise ship terminals and eliminate redundancies in the regulations that govern the security of cruise ship terminals.

Comments and related material must be received on or before March 10, 2015.
