Submitted by the Office of Port and Facility Compliance

The comment period for the draft Navigation and Vessel Inspection Circular (NVIC) 05-17 titled, “Guidelines for Addressing Cyber Risks at Maritime Transportation Security Act (MTSA) Regulated Facilities” concluded Oct. 11, 2017, with more than 250 public comments submitted. The Coast Guard appreciates the feedback it received during the comment period.

Over the coming months, the Coast Guard will evaluate the comments and identify sections of NVIC 05-17 that would benefit from a more detailed explanation to improve clarity. Once the comments have been evaluated and NVIC 05-17 appropriately revised, the final document will be posted to the Federal Register.

The full list of public comments can be found on the Federal Register.
