Background

    The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), through the United 
States Coast Guard and the Transportation Security Administration 
(TSA), issued a joint final rule (72 FR 3492; January 25, 2007)

Accountability for Every Port Act of 2006 (SAFE Port Act), Pub. L. 109-
347 (October 13, 2006). This rule requires all credentialed merchant 
mariners and individuals with unescorted access to secure areas of a 
regulated facility or vessel to obtain a TWIC. In this final rule, on 
page 3510, TSA and Coast Guard stated that a phased enrollment approach 
based upon risk assessment and cost/benefit would be used to implement 
the program nationwide, and that TSA would publish a notice in the 
Federal Register indicating when enrollment at a specific location will

the Ports of Longview, WA on June 26, 2008; and Vancouver, WA on July

days before compliance is required.
