8/20/2015: Vessel requirements for Notices of Arrival and Departure and Automatic Identification System; Notice of arrival information collection

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 received approval from the Office of Management and Budget for an information collection request associated with notice of arrival requirements in a final rule published in the Federal Register on January 30, 2015. This ruleestablishes today as the effective date for those sections.

On January 30, 2015, the Coast Guard published a final rule that revised or amended existing notice of arrival and automatic identification system requirements. The final rule delayed the effective date of 33 CFR 160.204(a)(5)(vii), 160.205, and 160.208(a) and (c) because these sections contain collection of information provisions that require approval by the Office of Management and Budget.

On August 5, 2015, OMB approved the collection. Accordingly, we sections 33 CFR 160.204(a)(5)(vii), 160.205, and 160.208(a) and (c) are effective August 20, 2015.

The approval for this collection of information expires on February 28, 2017.
