The Docket contains previous notices imposing or removing conditions of entry on vessels arriving from certain countries and those conditions of entry and the countries they pertain to remain in effect unless modified by this notice. The Coast Guard has determined that ports in Syria are not maintaining effective anti-terrorism measures. Accordingly, effective March 20, 2008 the Coast Guard will impose the following conditions of entry on vessels that visited ports in Syria during their last five port calls. Vessels must: • Implement measures per the ship’s security plan equivalent to Security level 2 while in a port in the above country; • Ensure that each access point to the ship is guarded and that the guards have total visibility of the exterior (both landside and waterside) of the vessel while the vessel is in ports in the above country. Guards may be provided by the PO 00000 Frm 00117 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 ship’s crew, however, additional crewmembers should be placed on the ship if necessary to ensure that limits on maximum hours of work are not exceeded and/or minimum hours of rest are met, or provided by outside security forces approved by the ship’s master and Company Security Officer; • Attempt to execute a Declaration of Security while in a port in the above country; • Log all security actions in the ship’s log; • Report actions taken to the cognizant U.S. Coast Guard Captain of the Port prior to arrival into U.S. waters; and • Ensure that each access point to the ship is guarded by armed, private security guards and that they have total visibility of the exterior (both landside and waterside) of the vessel while in U.S. ports. The number and position of the guards has to be acceptable to the cognizant Coast Guard Captain of the Port prior to the vessel’s arrival. With this notice, the current list of countries not maintaining effective antiterrorism measures is as follows: Cameroon, Equatorial Guinea, GuineaBissau, Indonesia, Liberia, Mauritania, and Syria.
