Download as PDF tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 51 / Monday, March 17, 2014 / Notices revisions. The Coast Guard notes, however, that the MSM (and any revisions made to the MSM) reflect current law and regulation and are intended to provide guidance and information to marine industry personnel. A brief discussion of the most important changes is included below. For a more in-depth discussion of the individual comments submitted, please visit the docket for this notice to view submitted comments and the public comment matrix. (1) We received several comments on what was generally perceived to be an increase in vessel manning, beyond that required by law or regulation. This was not the intention of this change and these sections have been clarified. (2) Several commenters expressed concern over how an owner’s decision to increase manning may be perceived by the Coast Guard and that the guidance provided did not adequately address when manning would warrant an additional review and modifications. To address this concern, these sections have been revised to focus on watchkeeping provisions, rest requirements, and the performance of maintenance. (3) Other commenters suggested that certain tables and scales be deleted or revised in their entirety and that the tables for uninspected towing vessels be replaced with those recommended by Towing Vessel Safety Advisory Committee (TSAC). We disagree. Although certain tables have been amended in response to various comments, they reflect the current laws and regulations pertaining to the manning levels for various vessel types, including uninspected towing vessels. The Coast Guard has engaged with TSAC to develop sample manning scales, however this tasking and recommendation pertains to inspected towing vessels, in preparation for future regulation. Once finalized, the TSAC recommendation will be taken under consideration for future inclusion in MSM Volume III. (4) A number of commenters urged the Coast Guard to consider, and include in this revision, the final agency action on pending appeals regarding when mariner credentials are required for persons in addition to the crew. We disagree. Decisions on appeal impacting requirements for certain persons in addition to the crew are being evaluated and will be addressed in the future. (5) Multiple commenters noted that although the Coast Guard usually discusses manning changes with management, specific language should be added to that end. We agree and revisions have been incorporated to VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:45 Mar 14, 2014 Jkt 232001 specifically mention the master as well as to include provisions for manning modifications to be discussed with the owner/operator. Additional substantive revisions include: (1) the consolidation of existing Coast Guard Policy Letters into the Manual; (2) context on the allowable employment and conditions of a twowatch system for specific vessel types; and (3) policy updates reflecting the implementation of the 2010 amendments to the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification, and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (STCW). These revisions are presented in a new format, where MSM Volume III has been split into two distinct parts; Part A, Mariner Credentialing (Chapters 1–19) and Part B, Vessel Manning (legacy Chapters 20– 26 are now Chapters 1–7). It should be noted that the proposed revisions in this draft change are not intended to preempt or take the place of separate policy initiatives regarding specific decisions on appeal or future regulations. Future changes to the MSM may be released if the Coast Guard promulgates new regulations or appeal decisions, which may affect the guidance and information contained within the MSM. This notice is issued under authority of 5 U.S.C. 552(a). Dated: March 10, 2014. Jonathan C. Burton, Captain, U.S. Coast Guard, Director, Inspections and Compliance.
