Background and Purpose

    In addition to announcing public meetings, the Coast Guard is 
reopening the public comment period announced in the ANPRM from August 
12, 2008 to December 15, 2008.
    Commercial fishing remains one of the most hazardous occupations in 
the United States. Congress addressed this problem by enacting the 
Commercial Fishing Industry Vessel Safety Act of 1988 (``the 1988 
Act,'' Pub. L. 100-424, as subsequently amended; see generally, 46 
U.S.C. chapter 45, ``Uninspected Commercial Fishing Industry 
Vessels''). The Act directed the Secretary of Transportation to provide 
safety requirements for fishing vessels, fish processing vessels, and 
fish tender vessels. It also established the Commercial Fishing 
Industry Vessel Safety Advisory Committee (CFIVSAC) to advise the 
Secretary on matters relating to the safe operation of commercial 
fishing vessels.
    Coast Guard regulations under the 1988 Act were first issued on 
August 14, 1991 (56 FR 40364), and were further addressed in the 
following documents:
     August 3, 1992, interim rule (57 FR 34188) that amended 
the 1991 immersion suit requirements in 46 CFR 28.110, but advised the 
public that immersion suits would be the subject of further rulemaking;
     October 27, 1992, SNPRM (57 FR 48670) that proposed the 
adoption of stability regulations for vessels less than 79 feet in 
length;
     May 20, 1993, NPRM (58 FR 29502) that proposed further 
changes to immersion suit requirements;
     October 24, 1995, final rule (60 FR 54441) that adopted 
regulations for Aleutian Trade Act vessels;
     November 5, 1996, interim rule (61 FR 57268) that adopted 
safety equipment and vessel operating procedure regulations and 
deferred further action on the 1992 SNPRM's proposal to extend 
stability regulations to smaller vessels;
     September 4, 1997, final rule (62 FR 46672) that finalized 
the 1996 regulations with some changes; and
     July 15, 1998, notice (63 FR 38141) that announced the 
termination of the 1993 NPRM and the Coast Guard's plans for a 
subsequent rulemaking to address immersion suits, vessel stability, and 
other commercial fishing industry vessel issues.
    These documents, as well as other background documents, are 
available in the docket. Each document may be downloaded.
