Because of this potential, and the recommendation from the NOSAC to set minimum DP reliability standards, the Coast Guard intends to publish a rule that addresses minimum DP design and operating standards for all vessels conducting OCS activities using DP on the U.S. OCS. DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY Interim Voluntary DP Guidance AGENCY: wreier-aviles on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Until such time as there is a regulatory requirement, the Coast Guard recommends owners and operators of all vessels other than MODUs conducting OCS activities on the U.S. OCS voluntarily follow guidance provided in the ‘‘DP Operations Guidance Prepared through the Dynamic Positioning Committee of the Marine Technology Society to aid in the safe and effective management of DP Operations’’, Part 2, Appendix 2, DP Project/Construction Vessels (July 2012)’’ or ‘‘Appendix 3, DP Logistics vessels (July 2012)’’ as appropriate. These documents are available at http://www.dynamicpositioning.com/ dp_operations_guidance.cfm. In particular, the Coast Guard recommends owners and operators of these vessels operate within an Activity Specific Operating Guideline (ASOG) for each OCS activity and operate within the vessel’s CAMO when that OCS activity is critical. Each ASOG should clearly state whether the activity it covers is critical. The Coast Guard further recommends that any vessel engaged in DP Simultaneous Operations (SIMOPS) follow applicable WSOGs and/or ASOGs for DP SIMOPS and operate within their respective CAMOs. The guidance contained in the notice is not a substitute for applicable legal requirements, nor is it itself a regulation. It is not intended to nor does it impose legally binding requirements on any party. It represents the Coast Guard’s current thinking on this topic and may assist industry, mariners, the general public, and the Coast Guard, as well as other Federal and State regulators, in applying statutory and regulatory requirements. You can use an alternative approach if the approach satisfies the requirements of the applicable statutes and regulations. Authority: This notice is issued under the authority of 5 U.S.C. 552(a), 43 U.S.C. 1331, et seq., and 33 CFR 1.05–1. Dated: October 2, 2012. J.G.
