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 seeks comment on the extension of its approval for the collection of information on marine occupational health and safety standards for Benzene – 46 CFR 197 Subpart C.

To protect marine workers from exposure to toxic Benzene vapor, the Coast Guard implemented Title 46 CFR 197 Subpart C. The Coast Guard, in particular, seeks comments from owners and operators of vessels.

In particular, the Coast Guard would appreciate comments addressing:

(1) The practical utility of the Collection;
(2) The accuracy of the estimated burden of the Collection;
(3) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of information subject to the Collection;
(4) Ways to minimize the burden of the Collection on respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

All comments must reach the Coast Guard on or before Oct. 11, 2016.
