The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) began collecting fees on March 1, 1988. The fee schedule for sanitation inspections of passenger cruise ships inspected under the Vessel Sanitation Average cost per inspection = The average cost per inspection is multiplied by size and cost factors to determine the fee for vessels in each size category. The size and cost factors were established in the proposed fee schedule published in the Federal Register on July 17, 1987 (52 FR 27060). The fee schedule was twice revised and was published in the Federal Register on November 28, 1989 (54 FR 48942) and on November 21, 2005 (70 FR Since then, CDC has annually published the fee schedule. This notice announces fees that are effective October 1, 2008. The following formula is used to determine the fees: Total cost of VSP Weighted number of annual inspections b 70078). The revised size and cost factors are presented in Appendix A. in the Federal Register 30 days before the effective date. Fee The fee schedule (Appendix A) will be effective October 1, 2008, through September 30, 2009. If travel expenses continue to increase, the fees may need adjusting before September 30, 2009, because travel constitutes a sizable portion of VSP’s costs. If an adjustment is necessary, a notice will be published Applicability The fees will apply to all passenger cruise vessels for which inspections are conducted as part of CDC’s VSP.
