These include facilities serving adults and those serving children and/or adolescents, with various subgroups such as forensic and sexual offender populations. With input from multiple experts in the field of restraint and seclusion and alternatives to restraint and seclusion, the project created a common core of data collection instruments that will be used for this cross-site project. The facilities will complete three different instruments over a 3-year time period: and Restraint Reduction Intervention will be collected annually. The Seclusion and Restraint Event Data Matrix will be collected monthly. The resulting data will help to identify the: (1) Number of programs adopting best practices involving alternative approaches to restraint and seclusion; and (2) program’s impact of reducing restraint and seclusion use and adoption of alternative practices. The estimated maximal annual response burden to collect this information is as follows: (1) Facility/Program Characteristics Inventory (information about type of facilities, characteristics of persons served, staffing patterns, and unit specific data); (2) Inventory of Seclusion and Restraint Reduction Interventions; (3) Seclusion and Restraint Event Data Matrix (data about restraint and seclusion rates within facilities and units). Data will be submitted by the sites electronically via a secured Web site.

    The Coast Guard has determined that ports in Iran are not 
maintaining effective anti-terrorism measures. Inclusive to this 
determination is an assessment that Iran presents significant risk of 
introducing instruments of terror into international maritime commerce. 
Accordingly, effective April 3, 2008, the Coast Guard will impose the 
following conditions of entry on vessels that visited ports in Iran 
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 Iran;
     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 Iran. 
Guards may be provided by the 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
