Please note, the Coast Guard cannot respond to comments on these notices outside of the Federal Register.
The Coast Guard seeks comment on the approval of a revision to a currently approved collection for request for voyage planning for tank barge transits in the northeast United States.
The Coast Guard established a nationwide vessel identification system, or VIS, and centralized certain vessel documentation function. VIS provides participating states and territories with access to data on vessels numbered by states and territories. Participation in VIS is voluntary.
The Coast Guard requests comments from governments of states and territories.
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 December 30, 2015.
