We have an agreement with the Department of Transportation to use the Docket Management Facility. Privacy Act: Anyone can search the electronic form of comments received into any of our dockets by the name of the individual submitting the comment (or signing the comment, if submitted on behalf of an association, business, labor union, etc.). You may review a Privacy Act system of records notice regarding our public dockets in the January 17, 2008, issue of the Federal Register (73 FR 3316). Background and Purpose STCW requirements: Regulation I/10 of the STCW requires Parties to the Convention to establish procedures to recognize certificates issued to maritime officers by or under the authority of another Party. STCW also requires the flag state of a vessel to ensure that all officers serving on board hold properly recognized and endorsed credentials. Citizenship waiver provisions within the United States Code: Title 46 of the United States Code (U.S.C.) allows the employment of foreign citizens aboard certain United States flag vessels. Specifically, 46 U.S.C. 8103(b)(3) establishes authority to waive the requirement for United States citizenship for: srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with NOTICES (A) An offshore supply vessel or other similarly engaged vessel of less than 1,600 gross tons as measured under section 14502 of this title, or an alternate tonnage measured under section 14302 of this title as prescribed by the Secretary under section 14104 of this title that operates from a foreign port; (B) A mobile offshore drilling unit or other vessel engaged in support of exploration, exploitation, or production of offshore mineral energy resources operating beyond the water above the outer Continental Shelf (as that term is defined in section 2(a) of the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act (43 U.S.C. 1331(a)); and (C) Any other vessel if the Secretary determines, after an investigation, that qualified seamen who are citizens of the United States are not available. Need for the policy: Recognition of seafarer competence certificates from other countries would ensure compliance with the STCW Convention requirements, be in accordance with the citizenship waiver requirements in 46 U.S.C. 8103(b)(3), and help ensure that United States flagged vessels are not subject to detention in foreign ports due to allegations of improperly credentialed seafarers. It would also be done in anticipation of the regulatory changes that would be needed to bring the United States into compliance with the STCW requirements. VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:01 Sep 24, 2010 Jkt 220001 The Proposed Policy Given this need, the Coast Guard is developing a policy to start establishing a process for the United States’ recognition of foreign certificates held by foreign officers who may be employed on some United States flag vessels. The Coast Guard is beginning to develop policy guidance for arrangements between parties to STCW for recognition of certificates under STCW Regulation I/10. The policy would provide guidance for Coast Guard on how and when to recognize STCW certificates issued by other countries. The policy would also provide a list of which countries’ certificates may be recognized and the process used to determine that list. As part of this policy, we expect that once the United States is satisfied that a certificate-issuing country complies with the STCW Convention requirements concerning standards of competence, the issuing and endorsement of certificates, and record keeping, both countries could sign a written formal agreement establishing recognition of each country’s STCW certificates. The proposed policy could also offer guidance for mariners and/or vessel operators/employers with regard to applying for and obtaining a United States-issued endorsement of their foreign certificates. We welcome your comments on the above proposals. In particular, the Coast Guard is interested in the following information: 1. Which United States flag vessels employ foreign citizens? 2. What are the nationalities of foreign citizens working United States flag vessels? 3. What countries issue STCW certificates for foreign citizens working United States flag vessels? We will review and analyze all comments received in order to develop the policy. Authority: We issue this notice of under the authority of 5 U.S.C. 552(a) and 46 U.S.C. 8103(b)(3). Dated: September 1, 2010. Kevin S. Cook, Rear Admiral, U.S. Coast Guard, Director of Prevention Policy.
