SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background and Purpose Volume III of the Marine Safety Manual (MSM) provides information and interpretations on international conventions and U.S. statutory and PO 00000 Frm 00057 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 regulatory issues relating to marine industry personnel. The last revisions to Volume III of the MSM were released on May 27, 1999. This supplemental notice announces updates to portions of legacy chapters 20 through 26. On August 9, 2013, the Coast Guard published a notice in the Federal Register announcing the availability of a draft update to MSM Volume III and requested public comments on the draft (See 78 FR 48696). Specifically, the substantive changes announced in that notice included: (1) updated provisions for vessel manning, including guidance for the issuing of safe manning documents; (2) clarified roles, responsibilities, and facilitation of communications with the appropriate offices at Coast Guard Headquarters in alignment with current Coast Guard organization; and (3) revised discussion on the impact of multiple international standards, including the Officer’s Competency Certificates Convention (OCCC) 1936, the International Convention for Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS), the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS), and the Principles of Minimum Safe Manning (IMO Resolution A.1047(27)). Additionally, the draft clarified the applicability of tonnage measurement systems to U.S. flag vessels, and included changes resulting from the consolidation of merchant mariner qualification credentials, including the removal of references to the operated uninspected towing vessel endorsement. We received fifteen public comment responses to the August 9, 2013 Federal Register notice. These comment responses contained a total of approximately 130 specific recommendations, suggestions, and other comments. We have created a document that provides a summary of each comment and the corresponding Coast Guard response, as well as internal Coast Guard comments and changes made to incorporate the STCW Final Rule. A copy of this public comment matrix is available for viewing in the public docket for this notice. For more detailed information, please consult the actual public comment letters in the docket. You may access the docket going to http:// www.regulations.gov, using ‘‘USCG– 2013–0240’’ as your search term, and following the instructions in the ADDRESSES section above. The basic ideas and principles encompassed in the initial draft change remain. Some commenters raised concerns and objections over several proposed revisions to the MSM. In response to these comments, the Coast Guard has made some additional E:\FR\FM\17MRN1.SGM 17MRN1
