The Office of Merchant Mariner Credentialing is seeking applications for membership positions representing credentialed ratings in the National Merchant Marine Personnel Advisory Committee (N-MERPAC). N-MERPAC was established by the Frank LoBiondo Coast Guard Authorization Act of 2018 and will replace the Merchant Marine Personnel Advisory Committee (MERPAC). On May 15, 2020, the Coast Guard published a request in the Federal Register (85 FR 29467) for applications for membership in N-MERPAC. Due to a lack of applications received for the membership positions representing credentialed ratings, the Coast Guard is re-soliciting applications from persons qualified to represent credentialed ratings on the committee.

Applicants who responded to the initial notice do not need to reapply. Those interested in N-MERPAC membership will need to submit an application as detailed in the federal register notice, docket number USCG-2020-0041, available on the Federal eRulemaking Portal http://www.regulations.gov.

Interested applicants should contact Ms. Megan Johns Henry at (202) 372-2357 or
megan.c.johns@uscg.mil with any questions or feedback.
