L. 112– 213) directed the Commandant of the Coast Guard to, not later than 180 days after enactment, submit to the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure of the House of Representatives and the Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation of the Senate an assessment of the Coast Guard National Maritime Center’s merchant mariner medical evaluation program and alternatives to the program. Section 718 also directed that the assessment contain the following: (1) An overview of the adequacy of the program for making medical certification determinations for issuance of merchant mariners’ documents; VerDate Mar<15>2010 19:35 Apr 01, 2013 Jkt 229001 (2) An analysis of how a system similar to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners program, and the Federal Aviation Administration’s Designated Aviation Medical Examiners program, could be applied by the Coast Guard in making medical fitness determinations for issuance of merchant mariners’ documents; and (3) An explanation of how the amendments to the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers, 1978, that entered into force on January 1, 2012, required changes to the Coast Guard’s merchant mariner medical evaluation program. Currently, the Coast Guard maintains an ‘‘open’’ system of medical evaluation. While the ultimate determination of medical fitness rests with the Coast Guard, mariners may have any authorized medical professional fill out the appropriate evaluation forms which are then submitted to the Coast Guard. The evaluation reports are reviewed by the National Maritime Center and a fitness determination is then made. Conversely, a ‘‘closed’’ system would require mariners to have their physical evaluations done by designated medical examiners who are authorized by the Coast Guard to conduct physical examinations of mariners. Subject to detailed policy guidance, medical certificates may be issued by the designated medical examiner. Finally, a hybrid system could be adopted whereby the designated medical examiner would issue medical certificates when mariners meet certain pre-established criteria, and the Coast Guard would only be involved in reviewing those mariners who have certain conditions. The Coast Guard would like public input on the relative merits of a closed, open, or hybrid system of medical evaluation, noting advantages and disadvantages of the different systems. We would also be interested in knowing any other suggestions or comments that address the subject of the assessment required by section 718 of the Coast Guard Authorization Act of 2012.
