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 is amending the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) to reflect its renaming of Coast Guard Sector Baltimore as Coast Guard Sector Maryland-National Capital Region.

The purpose to more clearly identify the functions and area of responsibility of this Coast Guard unit to the public.

“There will be no relocation of units, operational assets or personnel due to the renaming action,” said Dennis Sens, recreational boating safety program specialist for the 5th Coast Guard District. “Sector Maryland-National Capital Region will retain Captain of the Port, Federal Maritime Security Coordinator, Officer-in-Charge Marine Inspection, Federal on Scene Coordinator and all other authorities, responsibilities and sub-units, as previously assigned to Sector Baltimore. Only the title of these officials will change to reflect the new name of the Coast Guard Sector.”
