SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background and Purpose

    The ASME/USCG Workshop on Marine Technology and Standards provides 
a unique opportunity for classification societies, industry groups, 
standards development organizations, government agencies, and 
interested members of the public to come together for a professional 
exchange of information on topics ranging from technological impacts on 
the marine industry, corresponding coverage in related codes and 
standards, and government regulations.
    Held once every two to three years, the public workshop is 
sponsored by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), in 
coordination with the USCG Office of Design and Engineering Standards. 
ASME is a standards setting organization with wide-ranging volunteer 
committee membership, which includes USCG supported personnel who serve 
as members of various ASME committees in support of USCG missions in 
maritime safety and environmental protection. The USCG Office of Design 
and Engineering Standards is responsible for developing and 
promulgating national regulations and standards that govern the safe 
design and construction of ships and shipboard equipment, including 
hull structure, stability, electrical and mechanical systems, 
lifesaving and fire safety equipment, and related equipment approval 
and laboratory acceptance.
    This workshop is an opportunity for the public to provide expertise 
on technical matters affecting the marine industry, to leverage new 
technologies, and to improve future policymaking, standards 
development, and rulemaking. The most recent workshop was held in 
Washington, DC, on July 29-30, 2010 (75 FR 8099, February 23, 2010). 
Public engagement on regulations and design standards enhances both the 
effectiveness and the quality of policy development. As an example, 
dialogue from the previous workshop on the safe and economical use of 
natural gas as a marine fuel provided valuable insight for the 
development of CG-521 Policy Letter No. 01-12,\1\ which sets forth 
national policy regarding acceptable design criteria for shipboard 
natural gas fuel systems.
