Regulatory History On May 22, 2006, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) through the United States Coast Guard (Coast Guard) and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) published a joint notice of proposed rulemaking entitled ‘‘Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) Implementation in the Maritime Sector; Hazardous Materials Endorsement for a Commercial Driver’s License’’ in the Federal Register (71 FR 29396). This was followed by a 45-day comment period and four public meetings. The Coast Guard and TSA issued a joint final rule, under the same title, on January 25, 2007 (72 FR 3492) (hereinafter referred to as the original TWIC final rule). The preamble to that final rule contains a discussion of all the comments received on the NPRM, as well as a discussion of the provisions found in the original TWIC final rule, which became effective on March 26, 2007. On May 7, 2008, the Coast Guard and TSA issued a final rule to realign the compliance date for implementation of the Transportation Worker VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:15 Jul 08, 2008 Jkt 214001 Identification Credential. 73 FR 25562. The date by which mariners need to obtain a TWIC, and by which owners and operators of vessels, facilities, and outer continental shelf facilities, who have not otherwise been required to implement access control procedures utilizing TWIC, must implement those procedures, is now April 15, 2009 instead of September 25, 2008. Owners and operators of facilities that must comply with 33 CFR part 105 will still be subject to earlier, rolling compliance dates, as laid out in 33 CFR 105.115(e). On the same day, the Coast Guard announced the first of the rolling compliance dates and owners and operators of facilities located within Captain of the Port (COTP) Zones Boston, Northern New England, and Southeastern New England were informed that they must implement access control procedures utilizing TWIC no later than October 15, 2008. 73 FR 25757. The Coast Guard will continue to announce rolling compliance dates, as laid out in 33 CFR 105.115(e), at least 90 days in advance via notices published in the Federal Register. The final compliance date for all COTP Zones will not be later than April 15, 2009. II. Notice of Facility Compliance Date— COTP Zones Buffalo, Duluth, Detroit, Lake Michigan, and Sault Ste. Marie Title 33 CFR 105.115(e) currently states that ‘‘[f]acility owners and operators must be operating in accordance with the TWIC provisions in this part by the date set by the Coast Guard in a Notice to be published in the Federal Register.’’ Through this Notice, the Coast Guard informs the owners and operators of facilities subject to 33 CFR 105.115(e) located within COTP Zones Buffalo, Duluth, Detroit, Lake Michigan, and Sault Ste. Marie that the deadline for their compliance with Coast Guard and TSA TWIC requirements is October 31, 2008. The TSA and Coast Guard have determined that this date provides sufficient time for the estimated population required to obtain TWICs for these COTP Zones to enroll and for TSA to complete the necessary security threat assessments for those enrollment applications. We strongly encourage persons requiring unescorted access to facilities regulated by 33 CFR part 105 and located in one of these COTP Zones to enroll for their TWIC as soon as possible, if they haven’t already. Information on enrollment procedures, as well as a link to the pre-enrollment website (which will also enable an applicant to make an appointment for PO 00000 Frm 00047 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 enrollment), may be found at https://twicprogram.tsa.dhs.gov/ TWICWebApp/. You may also visit our Web site at homeport.uscg.mil/twic for a framework showing expected future compliance dates by COTP Zone. This list is subject to change; changes in expected future compliance dates will appear on that website. The exact compliance date for COTP Zones will also be announced in the Federal Register at least 90 days in advance. Dated: July 2, 2008. Mark P. O’Malley, Captain, U.S. Coast Guard, Chief, Ports and Facilities Activities. [FR Doc.
