L. 107–295, codified at 46 U.S.C. 70101 et seq.) (MTSA) provided the Coast Guard with statutory authorities and mandates to advance the Coast Guard’s maritime security mission. Pursuant to its authority under MTSA, the Coast Guard promulgated regulations in 33 CFR part 105 that apply to certain maritime facilities listed in 33 CFR 105.105. Among the requirements in 33 CFR part 105, owners and operators of regulated facilities must designate a Facility Security Officer (FSO) (33 CFR 105.200). Coast Guard regulations also set forth FSO qualifications and responsibilities (33 CFR 105.205). Under current regulations, FSOs are not required to undergo a formal training and certification process. Section 821 of the Coast Guard Authorization Act of 2010 (Pub. L. 111– 281) requires the Secretary of Homeland Security (Secretary) to establish comprehensive FSO training requirements designed to provide full security training that would lead to certification of such officers. The Coast Guard is in the process of considering a rulemaking to implement this portion of section 821. Section 821 also requires the Secretary to coordinate with the Maritime Administrator of the Department of Transportation in developing the FSO training curriculum. The Coast Guard and the Maritime Administrator believe that a public meeting would be beneficial at this stage in the process to engage the public and obtain comments on a draft model FSO training course as well as other aspects of the FSO training program. A draft model FSO training course will be available for viewing on the Coast Guard Homeport Web site (https://homeport.uscg.mil/mtsa) as well as in the online docket two weeks prior to the meeting. Topics to be discussed at the meeting include the following: (1) Draft model FSO training course; (2) Computer-based training and distance learning; (3) Provisional FSO certification; (4) FSO continuing education; (5) FSO refresher course; (6) Interim policy to provide curriculum guidelines for potential FSO training course providers; and (7) Any additional topics of concern with respect to the FSO training VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:03 Oct 10, 2012 Jkt 229001 program, certification, and the development and provision of training.

of the FSO training program. A draft model FSO training course will be 
available for viewing on the Coast Guard Homeport Web site (https://homeport.uscg.mil/mtsa) as well as in the online docket two weeks prior

FSO training course providers; and
    (7) Any additional topics of concern with respect to the FSO 
training program, certification, and the development and provision of 
training.
    The Coast Guard believes that a public meeting would also benefit 
the impacted community by providing a forum to raise relevant issues.
