Final rule. AGENCY: ACTION: SUMMARY: This rule makes nonsubstantive amendments throughout titles 33 and 46 of the Code of Federal Regulations, in order to align with changes in the Coast Guard’s internal organization that resulted from the Coast Guard’s recent sector realignment. The amendments typically describe the boundaries of sectors, marine inspection zones, and Captain of the Port zones; describe the reporting relationship between various field units; or reflect a change in the identity of the field unit that is responsible for a particular matter. This rule will have no substantive effect on the regulated public. This final rule is effective July 2, 2007. As a member of the public, the effective date of this rule does not place any new requirements on you. For example, if you are currently required to submit a vessel response plan under 33 CFR part 155, this rule may change the Captain of the Port Zone boundaries that are reflected in your plan. However, you do not need to incorporate those changes in your plan until your next scheduled plan revision, or in conjunction with an annual plan review conducted after July 2, 2007.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY Regulatory History We did not publish a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) for this regulation. Under both 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(A) and (b)(B), the Coast Guard finds that this rule is exempt from notice and comment rulemaking requirements because these changes involve agency organization, and good cause exists for not publishing an NPRM because the changes made are all nonsubstantive. This rule consists only of organizational amendments. These changes will have no substantive effect on the public; therefore, it is unnecessary to publish an NPRM. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that, for the same reasons, good cause exists for making this rule effective less than 30 days after publication in the Federal Register. Background and Purpose The Coast Guard has established a new system of sector commands. Sectors provide unified command and control for accomplishing Coast Guard mission objectives through the integrated conduct of operations, coordinated leveraging of maritime partner relationships, foresight in planning, and aggressive employment of assets and capabilities within the sector’s assigned Area of Responsibility (AOR). Sectors provide strategically guided, goal-focused, high-performance service delivery across the full range of Coast Guard missions. Sector AORs were created based on existing Captain of the Port (COTP) Zones and Marine Inspection Zones where possible. They combine the following Coast Guard legal titles and authorities-COTP, Federal Maritime Security Coordinator, Federal On-Scene Coordinator, Officer in Charge, Marine Inspection (OCMI), Search and Rescue Mission Coordinator—under one operational commander, with the resources necessary to carry out those responsibilities. The establishment of sectors has led to increased interaction and coordination of Coast Guard missions, resulting in improved command and control and better unity of effort in both homeland security and non-homeland security missions. The Sector Commander serves as the focal point and principal Coast Guard PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4701 Sfmt 4700 official to engage intra-Department of Homeland Security and interagency partners as well as other maritime stakeholders. Sectors combine legacy Marine Safety Offices (MSOs), Groups, Vessel Traffic Services, and some Air Stations into a standard organizational architecture. A diverse array of field structures has been transformed into 35 new sector commands, each of which consists of a Prevention, Response, and Logistics Department. In order to reflect the establishment of sector commands, this final rule extensively revises 33 CFR part 3, which contains informational provisions that describe Coast Guard internal organization. In addition, this rule amends numerous other Coast Guard regulations containing references that are affected by that establishment. While we have made every effort to update terminology comprehensively, if you encounter terms that you believe need updating, please contact the Coast Guard (see FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT). Please note that this rule is not intended to require any new action on your part. For example, if you previously filed a Vessel Response Plan (VRP) with us, pursuant to 33 CFR Part 155, the COTP zones on which you based your VRP may be changed by this rule. However, you are not required to change your VRP at this time, simply in order to reflect the changed COTP zones. Instead, we expect that you will reflect the then-current COTP zones the next time you conduct a scheduled plan revision or conduct your annual VRP review. Regulatory Evaluation This rule is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, and does not require an assessment of potential costs and benefits under section 6(a)(3) of that Order. The Office of Management and Budget has not reviewed it under that Order. As this rule involves internal agency organization and nonsubstantive changes, it will not impose any costs on the public. Small Entities Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601–612), we have considered whether this rule would have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. The term ‘‘small entities’’ comprises small businesses, not-for-profit organizations that are independently owned and operated and are not dominant in their fields, and E:\FR\FM\02JYR3.SGM 02JYR3 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 126 / Monday, July 2, 2007 / Rules and Regulations governmental jurisdictions with populations of less than 50,000. This rule does not require a general NPRM and, therefore, is exempt from the requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. Although this rule is exempt, we have reviewed it for potential economic impact on small entities. Collection of Information This rule calls for no new collection of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501– 3520). Federalism A rule has implications for federalism under Executive Order 13132, Federalism, if it has a substantial direct effect on State or local governments and would either preempt State law or impose a substantial direct cost of compliance on them. We have analyzed this rule under that Order and have determined that it does not have implications for federalism. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (2 U.S.C. 1531–1538) requires Federal agencies to assess the effects of their discretionary regulatory actions. In particular, the Act addresses actions that may result in the expenditure by a State, local, or tribal government, in the aggregate, or by the private sector of $100,000,000 or more in any one year. Though this rule will not result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble. Taking of Private Property This rule will not effect a taking of private property or otherwise have taking implications under Executive Order 12630, Governmental Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property Rights. Civil Justice Reform This rule meets applicable standards in sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform, to minimize litigation, eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden. pwalker on PROD1PC71 with RULES3 Protection of Children We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13045, Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks. This rule is not an economically significant rule and does not create an environmental risk to health or risk to safety that may disproportionately affect children. VerDate Aug<31>2005 22:56 Jun 29, 2007 Jkt 211001 Indian Tribal Governments This rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, because it does not have a substantial direct effect on one or more Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes. Energy Effects We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13211, Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use. We have determined that it is not a ‘‘significant energy action’’ under that order because it is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866 and is not likely to have a significant adverse effect on the supply, distribution, or use of energy. The Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs has not designated it as a significant energy action. Therefore, it does not require a Statement of Energy Effects under Executive Order 13211. Technical Standards The National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act (NTTAA) (15 U.S.C. 272 note) directs agencies to use voluntary consensus standards in their regulatory activities unless the agency provides Congress, through the Office of Management and Budget, with an explanation of why using these standards would be inconsistent with applicable law or otherwise impractical. Voluntary consensus standards are technical standards (e.g., specifications of materials, performance, design, or operation; test methods; sampling procedures; and related management systems practices) that are developed or adopted by voluntary consensus standards bodies. This rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards. Environment We have analyzed this rule under Commandant Instruction M16475.lD, which guides the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321–4370f), and have concluded that there are no factors in this case that would limit the use of a categorical exclusion under section 2.B.2 of the Instruction. Therefore, this rule is categorically excluded, under figure 2–1, paragraph (34)(a) and (b), of the Instruction from further PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4701 Sfmt 4700 36317 environmental documentation because this rule involves editorial, procedural, and internal agency functions.

VerDate Aug<31>2005 22:56 Jun 29, 2007 Jkt 211001 General description. (a) The Coast Guard’s general organization for the performance of its assigned functions and duties consists of the Commandant, assisted by the Headquarters staff, two Area Offices to act as intermediate echelons of operational command, and District and Sector Offices to provide regional direction and coordination. Area, District, and Sector offices operate within defined geographical areas of the United States, its territories, and possessions, including portions of the high seas adjacent thereto. They are established by the Commandant and their areas of responsibility are described in this part. (b) The two Coast Guard Areas are the Atlantic Area and the Pacific Area. A Coast Guard Area Commander is in command of a Coast Guard Area. The Atlantic Area Office is collocated with the Fifth Coast Guard District Office. The Pacific Area Office is collocated with the Eleventh Coast Guard District Office. Area Commanders are responsible for determining when operational matters require the coordination of forces and facilities of more than one district. (c) A Coast Guard District Commander is in command of a Coast Guard District and the District Commander’s office may be referred to as a Coast Guard District Office. The District Commander’s duties are described in § 1.01–1 of this subchapter. (d)(1) A Coast Guard Sector Commander is in command of a Coast Guard Sector and the Sector PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4701 Sfmt 4700 Commander’s office is referred to as a Coast Guard Sector Office. The Sector Commander is responsible for all Coast Guard missions within the sector’s area of responsibility. The Sector Commander’s authorities include Search and Rescue Mission Coordinator, Federal Maritime Security Coordinator, Federal On-Scene Coordinator, and, in most Sectors, Officer in Charge Marine Inspection (OCMI) and Captain of the Port (COTP). In his or her capacities as OCMI and COTP, the Sector Commander is responsible for a Marine Inspection Zone and COTP Zone. (2) In some Sectors, a Marine Safety Unit (MSU) retains OCMI and COTP authority over a designated portion of the Sector’s area of responsibility. In such cases, OCMI and COTP authority is exercised by the MSU Commander, not the Sector Commander. The appeal of a COTP order or OCMI matter is routed from the MSU Commander through the Sector Commander and then to the District Commander. (e) An OCMI is in command of a Marine Inspection Zone and his or her office may be referred to as a Coast Guard Marine Inspection Office. The OCMI’s duties are described in § 1.01– 20 of this subchapter. (f) A COTP is in command of a COTP Zone and his or her office may be referred to as a COTP Office. The COTP’s duties are described in § 1.01– 30 of this subchapter. (g) Each COTP Zone and each Marine Inspection Zone described in this part also includes the United States territorial seas adjacent to the described area or zone for the purpose of enforcing or acting pursuant to a statute effective in the United States territorial seas. Each COTP Zone and each Marine Inspection Zone described in this part also includes the contiguous zone adjacent to the area or zone for the purpose of enforcing or acting pursuant to a statute effective in the contiguous zone, as defined in § 2.28 of this subchapter. Each COTP Zone and each Marine Inspection Zone described in this part also includes the exclusive economic zone (EEZ) adjacent to the area for the purpose of enforcing or acting pursuant to a statute effective in the EEZ, as defined in § 2.30 of this subchapter. (h) Geographic descriptions used in this part are based upon boundaries and points located using the WGS 1984 world grid system. When referenced, the outermost extent of the U.S. EEZ is the line of demarcation produced by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) using the NAD 1983 coordinate system and projected to the WGS 1984 grid system. Both E:\FR\FM\02JYR3.SGM 02JYR3 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 126 / Monday, July 2, 2007 / Rules and Regulations coordinate systems are geocentric and similar such that they are Global Positioning System (GPS) compatible throughout the area of concern. Resolution is based upon ddmmss readings to tenths of a second. This corresponds to a positional precision of about +/¥2 meters. Decimal degrees to 5 decimal places correspond to a positional precision of about +/¥1 meter. State boundaries used to determine points for descriptions of jurisdictional limits were based upon the National Transportation Atlas Database 2003 produced by the Bureau of Transportation Statistics. This data set was produced at a scale of 1:100,000 and theoretically results in a nationwide locational accuracy of about +/¥50 meters of true position. I 4.

Coast Guard Sector, Marine Inspection Zone, and Captain of the 
Port Zone Structure; Technical Amendment

AGENCY: Coast Guard, DHS.

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This rule makes non-substantive amendments throughout titles 
33 and 46 of the Code of Federal Regulations, in order to align with 
changes in the Coast Guard's internal organization that resulted from 
the Coast Guard's recent sector realignment. The amendments typically 
describe the boundaries of sectors, marine inspection zones, and 
Captain of the Port zones; describe the reporting relationship between 
various field units; or reflect a change in the identity of the field 
unit that is responsible for a particular matter. This rule will have 
no substantive effect on the regulated public.

DATES: This final rule is effective July 2, 2007. As a member of the 
public, the effective date of this rule does not place any new 
requirements on you. For example, if you are currently required to 
submit a vessel response plan under 33 CFR part 155, this rule may 
change the Captain of the Port Zone boundaries that are reflected in 
your plan. However, you do not need to incorporate those changes in 
your plan until your next scheduled plan revision, or in conjunction 
with an annual plan review conducted after July 2, 2007.

ADDRESSES: Comments and material received from the public, as well as 
documents mentioned in this preamble as being available in the docket, 
are part of docket USCG-2006-25556 and are available for inspection or 
copying at the Docket Management Facility (M-30), U.S. Department of 
Transportation, West Building Ground Floor, Room W12-140, 1200 New 
Jersey Avenue SE., Washington, DC 20590, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., 
Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. You may also find this 
docket on the Internet at http://dms.dot.gov.

call Lieutenant Commander Todd Styrwold, Coast Guard, telephone 202-
372-2687. If you have questions on viewing the docket, call Ms. Renee 
V. Wright, Program Manager, Docket Operations, telephone 202-366-9826.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Regulatory History

    We did not publish a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) for this 
regulation. Under both 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(A) and (b)(B), the Coast Guard 
finds that this rule is exempt from notice and comment rulemaking 
requirements because these changes involve agency organization, and 
good cause exists for not publishing an NPRM because the changes made 
are all non-substantive. This rule consists only of organizational 
amendments. These changes will have no substantive effect on the 
public; therefore, it is unnecessary to publish an NPRM. Under 5 U.S.C. 
553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that, for the same reasons, good cause 
exists for making this rule effective less than 30 days after 
publication in the Federal Register.

Background and Purpose

    The Coast Guard has established a new system of sector commands. 
Sectors provide unified command and control for accomplishing Coast 
Guard mission objectives through the integrated conduct of operations, 
coordinated leveraging of maritime partner relationships, foresight in 
planning, and aggressive employment of assets and capabilities within 
the sector's assigned Area of Responsibility (AOR). Sectors provide 
strategically guided, goal-focused, high-performance service delivery 
across the full range of Coast Guard missions.
    Sector AORs were created based on existing Captain of the Port 
(COTP) Zones and Marine Inspection Zones where possible. They combine 
the following Coast Guard legal titles and authorities-COTP, Federal 
Maritime Security Coordinator, Federal On-Scene Coordinator, Officer in 
Charge, Marine Inspection (OCMI), Search and Rescue Mission 
Coordinator--under one operational commander, with the resources 
necessary to carry out those responsibilities. The establishment of 
sectors has led to increased interaction and coordination of Coast 
Guard missions, resulting in improved command and control and better 
unity of effort in both homeland security and non-homeland security 
missions.
    The Sector Commander serves as the focal point and principal Coast 
Guard official to engage intra-Department of Homeland Security and 
interagency partners as well as other maritime stakeholders.
    Sectors combine legacy Marine Safety Offices (MSOs), Groups, Vessel 
Traffic Services, and some Air Stations into a standard organizational 
architecture. A diverse array of field structures has been transformed 
into 35 new sector commands, each of which consists of a Prevention, 
Response, and Logistics Department.
    In order to reflect the establishment of sector commands, this 
final rule extensively revises 33 CFR part 3, which contains 
informational provisions that describe Coast Guard internal 
organization. In addition, this rule amends numerous other Coast Guard 
regulations containing references that are affected by that 
establishment. While we have made every effort to update terminology 
comprehensively, if you encounter terms that you believe need updating, 
please contact the Coast Guard (see FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT).
    Please note that this rule is not intended to require any new 
action on your part. For example, if you previously filed a Vessel 
Response Plan (VRP) with us, pursuant to 33 CFR Part 155, the COTP 
zones on which you based your VRP may be changed by this rule. However, 
you are not required to change your VRP at this time, simply in order 
to reflect the changed COTP zones. Instead, we expect that you will 
reflect the then-current COTP zones the next time you conduct a 
scheduled plan revision or conduct your annual VRP review.

Regulatory Evaluation

    This rule is not a ``significant regulatory action'' under section 
3(f) of Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, and does 
not require an assessment of potential costs and benefits under section 
6(a)(3) of that Order. The Office of Management and Budget has not 
reviewed it under that Order. As this rule involves internal agency 
organization and non-substantive changes, it will not impose any costs 
on the public.

Small Entities

    Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601-612), we have 
considered whether this rule would have a significant economic impact 
on a substantial number of small entities. The term ``small entities'' 
comprises small businesses, not-for-profit organizations that are 
independently owned and operated and are not dominant in their fields, 
and

[[Page 36317]]

governmental jurisdictions with populations of less than 50,000. This 
rule does not require a general NPRM and, therefore, is exempt from the 
requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. Although this rule is 
exempt, we have reviewed it for potential economic impact on small 
entities.

Collection of Information

    This rule calls for no new collection of information under the 
Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520).

Federalism

    A rule has implications for federalism under Executive Order 13132, 
Federalism, if it has a substantial direct effect on State or local 
governments and would either preempt State law or impose a substantial 
direct cost of compliance on them. We have analyzed this rule under 
that Order and have determined that it does not have implications for 
federalism.

Unfunded Mandates Reform Act

    The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (2 U.S.C. 1531-1538) 
requires Federal agencies to assess the effects of their discretionary 
regulatory actions. In particular, the Act addresses actions that may 
result in the expenditure by a State, local, or tribal government, in 
the aggregate, or by the private sector of $100,000,000 or more in any 
one year. Though this rule will not result in such an expenditure, we 
do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble.

Taking of Private Property

    This rule will not effect a taking of private property or otherwise 
have taking implications under Executive Order 12630, Governmental 
Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property 
Rights.

Civil Justice Reform

    This rule meets applicable standards in sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) 
of Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform, to minimize litigation, 
eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden.

Protection of Children

    We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13045, Protection 
of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks. This rule 
is not an economically significant rule and does not create an 
environmental risk to health or risk to safety that may 
disproportionately affect children.

Indian Tribal Governments

    This rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 
13175, Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments, 
because it does not have a substantial direct effect on one or more 
Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and 
Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities 
between the Federal Government and Indian tribes.

Energy Effects

    We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13211, Actions 
Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, 
Distribution, or Use. We have determined that it is not a ``significant 
energy action'' under that order because it is not a ``significant 
regulatory action'' under Executive Order 12866 and is not likely to 
have a significant adverse effect on the supply, distribution, or use 
of energy. The Administrator of the Office of Information and 
Regulatory Affairs has not designated it as a significant energy 
action. Therefore, it does not require a Statement of Energy Effects 
under Executive Order 13211.

Technical Standards

    The National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act (NTTAA) (15 
U.S.C. 272 note) directs agencies to use voluntary consensus standards 
in their regulatory activities unless the agency provides Congress, 
through the Office of Management and Budget, with an explanation of why 
using these standards would be inconsistent with applicable law or 
otherwise impractical. Voluntary consensus standards are technical 
standards (e.g., specifications of materials, performance, design, or 
operation; test methods; sampling procedures; and related management 
systems practices) that are developed or adopted by voluntary consensus 
standards bodies. This rule does not use technical standards. 
Therefore, we did not consider the use of voluntary consensus 
standards.

Environment

    We have analyzed this rule under Commandant Instruction M16475.lD, 
which guides the Coast Guard in complying with the National 
Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321-4370f), and 
have concluded that there are no factors in this case that would limit 
the use of a categorical exclusion under section 2.B.2 of the 
Instruction. Therefore, this rule is categorically excluded, under 
figure 2-1, paragraph (34)(a) and (b), of the Instruction from further 
environmental documentation because this rule involves editorial, 
procedural, and internal agency functions. A final ``Environmental 
Analysis Check List'' and a final ``Categorical Exclusion 
Determination'' are available in the docket where indicated under 
ADDRESSES.

Sec.  3.01-1  General description.

    (a) The Coast Guard's general organization for the performance of 
its assigned functions and duties consists of the Commandant, assisted 
by the Headquarters staff, two Area Offices to act as intermediate 
echelons of operational command, and District and Sector Offices to 
provide regional direction and coordination. Area, District, and Sector 
offices operate within defined geographical areas of the United States, 
its territories, and possessions, including portions of the high seas 
adjacent thereto. They are established by the Commandant and their 
areas of responsibility are described in this part.
    (b) The two Coast Guard Areas are the Atlantic Area and the Pacific 
Area. A Coast Guard Area Commander is in command of a Coast Guard Area. 
The Atlantic Area Office is collocated with the Fifth Coast Guard 
District Office. The Pacific Area Office is collocated with the 
Eleventh Coast Guard District Office. Area Commanders are responsible 
for determining when operational matters require the coordination of 
forces and facilities of more than one district.
    (c) A Coast Guard District Commander is in command of a Coast Guard 
District and the District Commander's office may be referred to as a 
Coast Guard District Office. The District Commander's duties are 
described in Sec.  1.01-1 of this subchapter.
    (d)(1) A Coast Guard Sector Commander is in command of a Coast 
Guard Sector and the Sector Commander's office is referred to as a 
Coast Guard Sector Office. The Sector Commander is responsible for all 
Coast Guard missions within the sector's area of responsibility. The 
Sector Commander's authorities include Search and Rescue Mission 
Coordinator, Federal Maritime Security Coordinator, Federal On-Scene 
Coordinator, and, in most Sectors, Officer in Charge Marine Inspection 
(OCMI) and Captain of the Port (COTP). In his or her capacities as OCMI 
and COTP, the Sector Commander is responsible for a Marine Inspection 
Zone and COTP Zone.
    (2) In some Sectors, a Marine Safety Unit (MSU) retains OCMI and 
COTP authority over a designated portion of the Sector's area of 
responsibility. In such cases, OCMI and COTP authority is exercised by 
the MSU Commander, not the Sector Commander. The appeal of a COTP order 
or OCMI matter is routed from the MSU Commander through the Sector 
Commander and then to the District Commander.
    (e) An OCMI is in command of a Marine Inspection Zone and his or 
her office may be referred to as a Coast Guard Marine Inspection 
Office. The OCMI's duties are described in Sec.  1.01-20 of this 
subchapter.
    (f) A COTP is in command of a COTP Zone and his or her office may 
be referred to as a COTP Office. The COTP's duties are described in 
Sec.  1.01-30 of this subchapter.
    (g) Each COTP Zone and each Marine Inspection Zone described in 
this part also includes the United States territorial seas adjacent to 
the described area or zone for the purpose of enforcing or acting 
pursuant to a statute effective in the United States territorial seas. 
Each COTP Zone and each Marine Inspection Zone described in this part 
also includes the contiguous zone adjacent to the area or zone for the 
purpose of enforcing or acting pursuant to a statute effective in the 
contiguous zone, as defined in Sec.  2.28 of this subchapter. Each COTP 
Zone and each Marine Inspection Zone described in this part also 
includes the exclusive economic zone (EEZ) adjacent to the area for the 
purpose of enforcing or acting pursuant to a statute effective in the 
EEZ, as defined in Sec.  2.30 of this subchapter.
    (h) Geographic descriptions used in this part are based upon 
boundaries and points located using the WGS 1984 world grid system. 
When referenced, the outermost extent of the U.S. EEZ is the line of 
demarcation produced by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric 
Administration (NOAA) using the NAD 1983 coordinate system and 
projected to the WGS 1984 grid system. Both

[[Page 36319]]

coordinate systems are geocentric and similar such that they are Global 
Positioning System (GPS) compatible throughout the area of concern. 
Resolution is based upon ddmmss readings to tenths of a second. This 
corresponds to a positional precision of about +/-2 meters. Decimal 
degrees to 5 decimal places correspond to a positional precision of 
about +/-1 meter. State boundaries used to determine points for 
descriptions of jurisdictional limits were based upon the National 
Transportation Atlas Database 2003 produced by the Bureau of 
Transportation Statistics. This data set was produced at a scale of 
1:100,000 and theoretically results in a nationwide locational accuracy 
of about +/-50 meters of true position.
