Nontank vessels less than 1,600 gross tons are considered to pose less of a threat, in part because of the smaller quantities of fuel carried and the light weight or distillate fuel oil that they generally use. Under section 701 of the 2004 Act, these vessels are still required to submit NTVRPs consistent with 33 U.S.C. 1321(j)(5). Until NTVRP regulations are issued and in effect, the Coast Guard will continue to issue 2-year interim operating authorization letters for NTVRPs meeting the requirements found in 33 U.S.C. 1321(j)(5)(D). Vessel owners or operators of a nontank vessel shall ensure that the plan: (1) Is consistent with the requirements of the National Contingency Plan and Area Contingency Plans; (2) Identifies the qualified individual having full authority to implement removal actions, and requires immediate communications between that individual and the appropriate Federal official and the persons providing personnel and equipment; (3) Identifies, and ensures by contract or other means approved by the President the availability of private personnel and equipment necessary to remove to the maximum extent practicable a worst case discharge (including a discharge resulting from fire or explosion), and to mitigate or prevent a substantial threat of such a discharge; (4) Describes the training, equipment testing, periodic unannounced drills, and response actions of persons on the vessel or at the facility, to be carried out under the plan to ensure the safety of the vessel or facility and to mitigate or prevent the discharge, or the substantial threat of a discharge; (5) Is updated periodically; and (6) Is resubmitted for approval of each significant change. Vessel owners and operators are encouraged to submit plans in accordance with the guidance of NVIC 01–05 CH 1. Plans submitted to the Coast Guard consistent with this guidance will facilitate issuance of interim operating authorizations. Once plans are received for review, the Coast Guard will issue an acknowledgement receipt. For plans that do not meet the elements described above, the Coast Guard will send the owner or operator a revision request identifying the deficient elements. If the Coast Guard finds the elements of a response plan to be not in compliance with the requirements of 33 U.S.C. 1321(j)(5)(D) as amended by the 2004 Act, the Coast Guard may initiate vessel VerDate Aug<31>2005 01:51 Jun 21, 2008 Jkt 214001 operational controls under authority of 33 U.S.C. 1233 and 33 CFR 160.111.
