SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background and Purpose

    Title 46 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) section 11.903(c) 
establishes that

[[Page 38672]]

applicants for certain officer endorsements on a merchant mariner 
credential (MMC) must comply with competency standards set forth in the 
International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and 
Watchkeeping for Seafarers, 1978, as amended (STCW). Currently, 
National Maritime Center policy letters 01-02 and 16-02 discuss methods 
for mariners to demonstrate their compliance with those standards, and 
thus qualify for an STCW endorsement for Officer in Charge of a 
Navigational Watch (OICNW).
    The Coast Guard plans to amend the policy for qualifying for an 
OICNW endorsement. Most notably, the amendment addresses alternatives 
to formal training for demonstrating competence rather than relying 
solely on completion of formal training. The amended policy is in the 
docket. This policy will cancel NMC Policy Letter 01-02 and 16-02.

    Authority: We issue this notice of policy availability under the 
authority of 5 U.S.C. 552(a).

    Dated: June 15, 2011.

Rear Admiral, U.S. Coast Guard, Director of Prevention Policy.
