1/21/2015: 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 announced a public meeting will take place on Feb. 9, 2015, in Fort Lauderdale, Florida to receive comments on a notice of proposed rulemaking published in the Federal Register on Dec. 10, 2014, under the title “Consolidated Cruise Ship Security Regulations.”

This proposed rule would amend Coast Guard regulations on cruise ship terminal security by implementing amendments that 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 the security requirements of cruise ship terminals and would eliminate redundancies in current regulations that govern the security of cruise ship terminals.

The meeting will be held on Feb. 9, 2015, from 1:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. The meeting may conclude before the allotted time if all matters for discussion have been addressed and there are no additional comments from the public.

Comments and related material must be received by the Coast Guard or the docket management facility on or before March 10, 2015.
