SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background and Purpose

    We published a final rule in the Federal Register on December 31, 
2008, requiring the identification of salvage and marine firefighting 
services in vessel response plans (73 FR 80618). The regulation 
requires appropriate salvage and marine firefighting resources to be 
identified, contracted for, and capable of responding to incidents up 
to and including the worst case discharge scenario. The rulemaking sets 
new response planning timeframes for each of the required salvage and 
marine firefighting services.
    On August 31, 2009, the Coast Guard published another final rule 
concerning vessel response plans that deferred the implementation date 
for the salvage and marine firefighting requirements from June 1, 2010 
to February 22, 2011 (Vessel and Facility Response Plans for Oil: 2003 
Removal Equipment Requirements and Alternative Technology Revisions, 74 
FR 45004). As a result, pursuant to 33 CFR 155.4020(a), tank vessel 
response plans incorporating salvage and firefighting changes must be 
submitted by February 22, 2011.
    NVIC 2-10 provides voluntary guidance to vessel owners and 
operators, salvage and marine firefighting resource providers, and 
other members of the maritime industry for preparing and submitting the 
necessary information to comply with the requirements contained in the 
Salvage and Marine Firefighting Requirements; Vessel Response Plans for 
Oil, 33 CFR part 155, subpart I. The NVIC also contains an extensive 
list of frequently asked questions and job aids to assist affected 
industry in submitting the required updates to their vessel response 
plans.
    This notice is issued under authority of 5 U.S.C. 552, and 33 CFR 
1.05-15.

    Dated: September 27, 2010.
