L. 108–293), codified at 33 U.S.C. 409, that authorizes the Commandant to waive the requirement to mark a sunken vessel, raft, or other craft with a light at night if the Commandant determines it would be ‘‘impracticable and granting such a waiver would not create an undue hazard to navigation.’’ We rmajette on DSK2TPTVN1PROD with PROPOSALS FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:58 Sep 09, 2013 Jkt 229001 33 CFR Parts 140, 141, 142, 143, 144, 145, 146, and 147 [Docket No. USCG–2012–0779] RIN 1625–AC05 Safety and Environmental Management System Requirements for Vessels on the U.S. Outer Continental Shelf Coast Guard, DHS. Advance notice of proposed rulemaking. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard intends to promulgate regulations that will require vessels engaged in OCS activities (defined in 33 CFR Chapter I, Subchapter N) to develop, implement, and maintain a vessel-specific Safety and Environmental Management System (SEMS) that incorporates the management program and principles of the American Petroleum Institute’s Recommended Practice for Development of a Safety and Environmental Management Program for Offshore Operations and Facilities, Third Edition, May 2004 (API RP 75). The Coast Guard intends for this SEMS to be developed and implemented by the vessel’s owner or operator and compatible with a designated lease operator’s SEMS required under Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) regulations. The Coast Guard seeks comments on whether a SEMS that incorporates the management program and principles of API RP 75 is appropriate for vessels engaged in OCS activities, would reduce SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 risk and casualties, and improve safety on the OCS. Comments should address the feasibility of implementing a SEMS that incorporates API RP 75, the compatibility with BSEE SEMS regulations, potential methods of oversight, safety issues, costs and regulatory burdens, and other issues of concern to the regulated community and general public. The Coast Guard would use such comments to assist in developing these new regulations.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Coast Guard published a Notice of 
Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) on May 28, 2013 (78 FR 31872) proposing to 
add to its regulations a provision in section 301 of the Coast Guard 
and Maritime Transportation Act of 2004 (Pub. L. 108-293), codified at 
33 U.S.C. 409, that authorizes the Commandant to waive the requirement 
to mark a sunken vessel, raft, or other craft with a light at night if 
the Commandant determines it would be ``impracticable and granting such 
a waiver would not create an undue hazard to navigation.'' We received 
no comments on the proposed rule, no public meeting was requested, and 
none was held.
    We note, however, that the NPRM was published with an incorrect 
Regulatory Identification Number (RIN) of 1625-AA97, which was 
withdrawn in 2008. We have assigned a new RIN, 1625-AC11, to this rule.

    Dated: September 3, 2013.
