L. 111–281, codified at 46 U.S.C. 3703 Note). In accordance with section 702, the Coast Guard intends to focus on operations that have the highest risks of discharge, including operations at night and in inclement weather. We are considering whether or not to establish new or amend existing regulations for the use of equipment, such as putting booms in place for transfers, safety, and environmental impacts; and operational procedures such as manning standards, communication protocols, and restrictions on operations in high-risk areas. We are also taking into account the safety of personnel and effectiveness of available procedures and equipment for preventing or mitigating transfer spills. Request for Comments We seek public input and assistance in identifying appropriate issues to assist reducing the risks of oil spills in operations involving the transfer of oil from or to a tank vessel. We request input on the following questions: 1. In addition to operations at night and inclement weather, what other oil transfer operations to or from tank vessels have the highest risk of spilling oil? 2. What measures should the Coast Guard implement to reduce the spillage of oil from other high-risk operations conducted during oil transfer operations to or from tank vessels? 3. What measures should the Coast Guard implement to reduce spillage of E:\FR\FM\23OCN1.SGM 23OCN1
