Subchapter H is comprised of parts 101 through 106. Subchapter H implements the major provisions of the Maritime Transportation Security Act of 2002 (MTSA). This rulemaking is the first major revision to subchapter H. The proposed changes would further the goals of domestic compliance and international cooperation by incorporating requirements from legislation implemented since the original publication of these regulations, such as the Security and Accountability for Every (SAFE) Port Act of 2006, and including international standards such as Standards of Training, Certification & Watchkeeping security training. This rulemaking has international interest because of the close relationship between subchapter H and the International Ship and Port Security Code (ISPS).

L. 107–295; EO 12234 Abstract: This rulemaking would expand the applicability for Notice of Arrival and Departure (NOAD) and Automatic Identification System (AIS) requirements. These expanded requirements would better enable the Coast Guard to correlate vessel AIS data with NOAD data, enhance our ability to identify and track vessels, detect anomalies, improve navigation safety, and heighten our overall maritime domain awareness. The NOAD portion of this rulemaking could expand the applicability of the NOAD regulations by changing the minimum size of vessels covered below the current 300 gross tons, require a notice of departure when a vessel is departing for a foreign port or place, and mandate electronic submission of NOAD notices to the National Vessel Movement Center. The AIS portion of this rulemaking would expand current AIS carriage requirements for the population identified in the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) Convention and the Marine Transportation Marine Transportation Security Act (MTSA) of 2002.

Congress enacted several statutory requirements within the Security and Accountability for Every (SAFE) Port Act of 2006 to guide regulations pertaining to TWIC readers, including the need to evaluate TSA’s final pilot program report as part of the TWIC reader rulemaking. During the rulemaking process, we will take into account the final pilot data and the various conditions in which TWIC readers may be employed. For example, we will consider the types of vessels and facilities that will use TWIC readers, locations of secure and restricted areas, operational constraints, and need for accessibility. Recordkeeping requirements, amendments to security plans, and the requirement for data exchanges (i.e., Canceled Card List) between TSA and vessel or facility owners/operators will also be addressed in this rulemaking.

MARPOL Annex 1 Update Legal Authority: 46 U.S.C. 2103; 46 U.S.C. 4102; Department of Homeland Security Delegation No 0170.1(92)(a), (92)(b) Abstract: The Coast Guard proposed aligning its regulations with the 2010 Coast Guard Authorization Act. Before 2010, uninspected commercial barges and uninspected commercial sailing vessels fell outside the scope of a statute requiring the regulation of lifesaving devices on uninspected vessels. Lifesaving devices were required on these vessels only if they carried passengers for hire. The 2010 Act brought these vessels within the scope of the statutory requirement to carry lifesaving devices even if they carry no passengers. The Coast Guard proposed requiring the use of wearable personal flotation devices for individuals on board uninspected commercial barges and sailing vessels, and amending E:\FR\FM\13JNP9.SGM 13JNP9 34072 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 114 / Friday, June 13, 2014 / Unified Agenda several regulatory tables to reflect that requirement.

Implementation of the 1995 Amendments to the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification, and Watchkeeping (STCW) for Seafarers, 1978 Legal Authority: 46 U.S.C. 2103; 46 U.S.C. 71; 46 U.S.C. 73; DHS Delegation No. 0170.1 Abstract: The International Maritime Organization (IMO) comprehensively amended the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification, and Watchkeeping (STCW) for Seafarers, 1978, in 1995 and 2010. The 1995 amendments came into force on February 1, 1997. This project implements those amendments by revising current rules to ensure that the United States complies with their requirements on: The training of merchant mariners, the documenting of their qualifications, and watch-standing and other arrangements aboard seagoing merchant ships of the United States. In addition, the Coast Guard has identified the need for additional changes to the interim rule issued in 1997. This project supports the Coast Guard’s broad role and responsibility of maritime safety. It also supports the roles and responsibilities of the Coast Guard of reducing deaths and injuries of crew members on domestic merchant vessels and eliminating substandard vessels from the navigable waters of the United States. The Coast Guard published an NPRM on November 17, 2009, and Supplemental NPRMs (SNPRM) on March 23, 2010 and August 1, 2011. At a June 2010 diplomatic conference, the IMO adopted additional amendments to the STCW convention which change the minimum training requirements for seafarers. In response to feedback and to the adoption of those amendments, the Coast Guard developed a second Supplemental NPRM to incorporate the 2010 Amendments into the 1990 interim rule.

This law extends the immigration laws of the United States to the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) and provides for a joint visa waiver program for travel to Guam and the CNMI. This rule implements section 702 of the CNRA by amending the regulations to replace the current Guam Visa Waiver Program with a new Guam-CNMI Visa Waiver Program.

Section 702 of the Consolidated Natural Resources Act of 2008 (CNRA), subject to a transition period, extends the immigration laws of the United States to the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) and provides for a visa waiver program for travel to Guam and/or the CNMI. On January 16, 2009, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Customs and Border Protection (CBP), issued an interim final rule in the Federal Register replacing the then-existing Guam Visa Waiver Program with the Guam-CNMI Visa Waiver Program and setting forth the requirements for nonimmigrant visitors seeking admission into Guam and/or the CNMI under the Guam-CNMI Visa Waiver Program. As of November 28, 2009, the Guam-CNMI Visa Waiver Program is operational. This program allows nonimmigrant visitors from eligible countries to seek admission for business or pleasure for entry into Guam and/or the CNMI without a visa for a period of authorized stay not to exceed forty-five days.

TSA also proposed that all aircraft operations, including corporate and private charter operations, with aircraft having a maximum certificated takeoff weight (MTOW) above 12,500 pounds (large aircraft) be required to adopt a large aircraft security program. TSA also proposed to require certain airports that serve large aircraft to adopt security programs. After considering comments received on the NPRM and sponsoring public meetings with stakeholders, TSA decided to revise the original proposal to tailor security requirements to the general aviation industry. TSA is preparing a supplemental NPRM (SNPRM), which will include a comment period for public comments. TSA is considering the following proposed provisions in the SNPRM: (1) security measures for foreign aircraft operators commensurate with measures for U.S. operators, (2) the type of aircraft subject to TSA regulation, (3) compliance oversight, (4) watch list matching of passengers, (5) prohibited items, (6) scope of the background check requirements and the procedures used to implement the requirement, and (7) other issues.

L. 110–53, secs 1411, 1414, 1520, 1522 and 1602 Abstract: The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) intends to propose new regulations to revise and standardize the procedures, adjudication criteria, and fees for most of the security threat assessments (STA) E:\FR\FM\13JNP9.SGM 13JNP9 34075 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 114 / Friday, June 13, 2014 / Unified Agenda of individuals for which TSA is responsible. The scope of the rulemaking will include transportation workers from all modes of transportation who are required to undergo an STA, including surface maritime and aviation workers. In accordance with the Implementing Recommendations of the 9/11 Commission Act of 2007 (9/11 Act), the notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) will address STAs for frontline employees for public transportation agencies and railroad. In addition, TSA will propose fees to cover the cost of all STAs. TSA plans to improve efficiencies in processing STAs and streamline existing regulations by simplifying language and removing redundancies. As part of this proposed rule, TSA will propose revisions to the Alien Flight Student Program (AFSP) regulations. TSA published an interim final rule for ASFP on September 20, 2004. TSA regulations require aliens seeking to train at Federal Aviation Administration-regulated flight schools to complete an application and undergo an STA prior to beginning flight training. There are four categories under which students currently fall; the nature of the STA depends on the student’s category. TSA is considering changes to the AFSP that would improve the equity among fee payers and enable the implementation of new technologies to support vetting.

SUMMARY: This regulatory agenda is a semiannual summary of current and 
projected rulemakings, existing regulations, and completed actions of 
the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and its components. This 
agenda provides the public with information about DHS's regulatory 
activity. DHS expects that this information will enable the public to 
be more aware of, and effectively participate in, the Department's 
regulatory activity. DHS invites the public to submit comments on any 
aspect of this agenda.

19, 1980) and Executive Order 12866 ``Regulatory Planning and Review'' 
(Sept. 30, 1993) as incorporated in Executive Order 13563 ``Improving 
Regulation and Regulatory Review'' (Jan. 18, 2011), which require the 
Department to publish a semiannual agenda of regulations. The 
regulatory agenda is a summary of current and projected rulemakings, as 
well as actions completed since the publication of the last regulatory 
agenda for the Department. DHS's last semiannual regulatory agenda was 
published on January 7, 2014, at 79 FR 1174.
    Beginning in fall 2007, the Internet became the basic means for 
disseminating the Unified Agenda. The complete Unified Agenda is 
available online at www.reginfo.gov.
    The Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 602) requires Federal 
agencies to publish their regulatory flexibility agendas in the Federal 
Register. A regulatory flexibility agenda shall contain, among other 
things, a brief description of the subject area of any rule which is 
likely to have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of 
small entities. DHS's printed agenda entries include regulatory actions 
that are in the Department's regulatory flexibility agenda. Printing of 
these entries is limited to fields that contain information required by 
the agenda provisions of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. Additional 
information on these entries is available in the Unified Agenda 
published on the Internet.
    The semiannual agenda of the Department conforms to the Unified 
Agenda format developed by the Regulatory Information Service Center.

    Abstract: Title 46 U.S.C. 12301, as amended by the Abandoned Barge 
Act of 1992, requires that all undocumented barges of more than 100 
gross tons operating on the navigable waters of the United States be 
numbered. This rulemaking would establish a numbering system for these 
barges. The numbering of undocumented barges allows the Coast Guard to 
identify the owners of abandoned barges. This rulemaking supports the 
Coast Guard's broad role and responsibility of protecting natural 
resources.

CFR 6.04-11; 33 CFR 6.14; 33 CFR 6.16; 33 CFR 6.19; DHS Delegation No 
0170.1
    Abstract: The Coast Guard proposes certain additions, changes, and 
amendments to 33 CFR, subchapter H. Subchapter H is comprised of parts 
101 through 106. Subchapter H implements the major provisions of the 
Maritime Transportation Security Act of 2002 (MTSA). This rulemaking is 
the first major revision to subchapter H. The proposed changes would 
further the goals of domestic compliance and international cooperation 
by incorporating requirements from legislation implemented since the 
original publication of these regulations, such as the Security and 
Accountability for Every (SAFE) Port Act of 2006, and including 
international standards such as Standards of Training, Certification & 
Watchkeeping security training. This rulemaking has international 
interest because of the close relationship between subchapter H and the 
International Ship and Port Security Code (ISPS).

175. Vessel Requirements for Notices of Arrival and Departure, and 
Automatic Identification System

    Legal Authority: 33 U.S.C. 1223; 33 U.S.C. 1225; 33 U.S.C. 1231; 46 
U.S.C. 3716; 46 U.S.C. 8502; 46 U.S.C. 701; sec 102 of Pub. L. 107-295; 
EO 12234
    Abstract: This rulemaking would expand the applicability for Notice 
of Arrival and Departure (NOAD) and Automatic Identification System 
(AIS) requirements. These expanded requirements would better enable the 
Coast Guard to correlate vessel AIS data with NOAD data, enhance our 
ability to identify and track vessels, detect anomalies, improve 
navigation safety, and heighten our overall maritime domain awareness.
    The NOAD portion of this rulemaking could expand the applicability 
of the NOAD regulations by changing the minimum size of vessels covered 
below the current 300 gross tons, require a notice of departure when a 
vessel is departing for a foreign port or place, and mandate electronic 
submission of NOAD notices to the National Vessel Movement Center. The 
AIS portion of this rulemaking would expand current AIS carriage 
requirements for the population identified in the Safety of Life at Sea 
(SOLAS) Convention and the Marine Transportation Marine Transportation 
Security Act (MTSA) of 2002.

It would prescribe standards for safety management systems and third-
party auditors and surveyors, along with standards for construction, 
operation, vessel systems, safety equipment, and recordkeeping.

U.S.C. 191; 50 U.S.C. 192; EO 12656
    Abstract: The Coast Guard is establishing electronic card reader 
requirements for maritime facilities and vessels to be used in 
combination with TSA's Transportation Worker Identification Credential 
(TWIC). Congress enacted several statutory requirements within the 
Security and Accountability for Every (SAFE) Port Act of 2006 to guide 
regulations pertaining to TWIC readers, including the need to evaluate 
TSA's final pilot program report as part of the TWIC reader rulemaking. 
During the rulemaking process, we will take into account the final 
pilot data and the various conditions in which TWIC readers may be 
employed. For example, we will consider the types of vessels and 
facilities that will use TWIC readers, locations of secure and 
restricted areas, operational constraints, and need for accessibility. 
Recordkeeping requirements, amendments to security plans, and the 
requirement for data exchanges (i.e., Canceled Card List) between TSA 
and vessel or facility owners/operators will also be addressed in this 
rulemaking.

178. MARPOL Annex 1 Update

    Legal Authority: 33 U.S.C. 1902; 46 U.S.C. 3306
    Abstract: In this rulemaking, the Coast Guard would amend the 
regulations in subchapter O (Pollution) of title 33 of the CFR, 
including regulations on vessels carrying oil, oil pollution 
prevention, oil transfer operations, and rules for marine environmental 
protection regarding oil tank vessels, to reflect changes to 
international oil pollution standards adopted since 2004. Additionally, 
this regulation would update shipping regulations in title 46 to 
require Material Safety Data Sheets, in accordance with international 
agreements, to protect the safety of mariners at sea.

179. Lifesaving Devices Uninspected Vessels Commercial Barges and 
Sailing Vessels (Section 610 Review)

    Legal Authority: 46 U.S.C. 2103; 46 U.S.C. 4102; Department of 
Homeland Security Delegation No 0170.1(92)(a), (92)(b)
    Abstract: The Coast Guard proposed aligning its regulations with 
the 2010 Coast Guard Authorization Act. Before 2010, uninspected 
commercial barges and uninspected commercial sailing vessels fell 
outside the scope of a statute requiring the regulation of lifesaving 
devices on uninspected vessels. Lifesaving devices were required on 
these vessels only if they carried passengers for hire. The 2010 Act 
brought these vessels within the scope of the statutory requirement to 
carry lifesaving devices even if they carry no passengers. The Coast 
Guard proposed requiring the use of wearable personal flotation devices 
for individuals on board uninspected commercial barges and sailing 
vessels, and amending

several regulatory tables to reflect that requirement. This rulemaking 
promotes the Coast Guard's maritime safety mission.

180. Commercial Fishing Vessels--Implementation of 2010 and 2012 
Legislation

    Legal Authority: Pub. L. 111-281; title VI (Marine Safety)
    Abstract: The Coast Guard is implementing those requirements of 
2010 and 2012 legislation that pertain to uninspected commercial 
fishing industry vessels and that took effect upon enactment of the 
legislation but that, to be implemented, require amendments to Coast 
Guard regulations affecting those vessels. The applicability of the 
regulations is being changed, and new requirements are being added to 
safety training, equipment, vessel examinations, vessel safety 
standards, the documentation of maintenance, and the termination of 
unsafe operations. This rulemaking promotes the Coast Guard maritime 
safety mission.

hazardous materials used as stores, and accommodation spaces; 2) adding 
standards for electrical and machinery installations in hazardous 
locations; 3) providing regulations for dynamic positioning systems; 4) 
providing for USCG acceptance and approval of specified classification 
society plan reviews, inspections, audits, and surveys; and 5) 
requiring foreign vessels engaged in OCS activities to comply with 
rules similar to those imposed on U.S. vessels similarly engaged. This 
project would affect the owners and operators of facilities and vessels 
engaged in offshore activities.

182. Implementation of the 1995 Amendments to the International 
Convention on Standards of Training, Certification, and Watchkeeping 
(STCW) for Seafarers, 1978

    Legal Authority: 46 U.S.C. 2103; 46 U.S.C. 71; 46 U.S.C. 73; DHS 
Delegation No. 0170.1
    Abstract: The International Maritime Organization (IMO) 
comprehensively amended the International Convention on Standards of 
Training, Certification, and Watchkeeping (STCW) for Seafarers, 1978, 
in 1995 and 2010. The 1995 amendments came into force on February 1, 
1997. This project implements those amendments by revising current 
rules to ensure that the United States complies with their requirements 
on: The training of merchant mariners, the documenting of their 
qualifications, and watch-standing and other arrangements aboard 
seagoing merchant ships of the United States. In addition, the Coast 
Guard has identified the need for additional changes to the interim 
rule issued in 1997. This project supports the Coast Guard's broad role 
and responsibility of maritime safety. It also supports the roles and 
responsibilities of the Coast Guard of reducing deaths and injuries of 
crew members on domestic merchant vessels and eliminating substandard 
vessels from the navigable waters of the United States. The Coast Guard 
published an NPRM on November 17, 2009, and Supplemental NPRMs (SNPRM) 
on March 23, 2010 and August 1, 2011.
    At a June 2010 diplomatic conference, the IMO adopted additional 
amendments to the STCW convention which change the minimum training 
requirements for seafarers. In response to feedback and to the adoption 
of those amendments, the Coast Guard developed a second Supplemental 
NPRM to incorporate the 2010 Amendments into the 1990 interim rule.

provisions proposed in the NPRM. The interim final rule did not 
finalize six data elements that were identified as areas of potential 
concern for industry during the rulemaking process and, for which, CBP 
provided some type of flexibility for compliance with those data 
elements. CBP solicited public comment on these six data elements, is 
conducting a structured review, and also invited comments on the 
revised Regulatory Assessment and Final Regulatory Flexibility 
Analysis. [See 73 FR 71782-85 for regulatory text and 73 CFR 71733-34 
for general discussion.] The remaining requirements of the rule were

184. Implementation of the GUAM-CNMI Visa Waiver Program (Section 610 
Review)

    Legal Authority: Pub. L. 110-229, sec 702
    Abstract: The IFR (or the final rule planned for the coming year) 
rule amends Department of Homeland Security (DHS) regulations to 
implement section 702 of the Consolidated Natural Resources Act of 2008 
(CNRA). This law extends the immigration laws of the United States to 
the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) and provides 
for a joint visa waiver program for travel to Guam and the CNMI. This 
rule implements section 702 of the CNRA by amending the regulations to 
replace the current Guam Visa Waiver Program with a new Guam-CNMI Visa 
Waiver Program. The amended regulations set forth the requirements for 
nonimmigrant visitors who seek admission for business or pleasure and 
solely for entry into and stay on Guam or the CNMI without a visa. This 
rule also establishes six ports of entry in the CNMI for purposes of 
administering and enforcing the Guam-CNMI Visa Waiver Program. Section 
702 of the Consolidated Natural Resources Act of 2008 (CNRA), subject 
to a transition period, extends the immigration laws of the United 
States to the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) and 
provides for a visa waiver program for travel to Guam and/or the CNMI. 
On January 16, 2009, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Customs 
and Border Protection (CBP), issued an interim final rule in the 
Federal Register replacing the then-existing Guam Visa Waiver Program 
with the Guam-CNMI Visa Waiver Program and setting forth the 
requirements for nonimmigrant visitors seeking admission into Guam and/
or the CNMI under the Guam-CNMI Visa Waiver Program. As of November 28, 
2009, the Guam-CNMI Visa Waiver Program is operational. This program 
allows nonimmigrant visitors from eligible countries to seek admission 
for business or pleasure for entry into Guam and/or the CNMI without a 
visa for a period of authorized stay not to exceed forty-five days. 
This rulemaking would finalize the January 2009 interim final rule.

    Abstract: On October 30, 2008 (73 FR 64790), the Transportation 
Security Administration (TSA) issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking 
(NPRM), proposing to amend current aviation transportation security 
regulations to enhance the security of general aviation by expanding 
the scope of current requirements, and by adding new requirements for 
certain large aircraft operators and airports serving those aircraft. 
TSA also proposed that all aircraft operations, including corporate and 
private charter operations, with aircraft having a maximum certificated 
takeoff weight (MTOW) above 12,500 pounds (large aircraft) be required 
to adopt a large aircraft security program. TSA also proposed to 
require certain airports that serve large aircraft to adopt security 
programs.
    After considering comments received on the NPRM and sponsoring 
public meetings with stakeholders, TSA decided to revise the original 
proposal to tailor security requirements to the general aviation 
industry. TSA is preparing a supplemental NPRM (SNPRM), which will 
include a comment period for public comments. TSA is considering the 
following proposed provisions in the SNPRM: (1) security measures for 
foreign aircraft operators commensurate with measures for U.S. 
operators, (2) the type of aircraft subject to TSA regulation, (3) 
compliance oversight, (4) watch list matching of passengers, (5) 
prohibited items, (6) scope of the background check requirements and 
the procedures used to implement the requirement, and (7) other issues.

    Abstract: The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) intends 
to propose new regulations to revise and standardize the procedures,

assessments (STA)

[[Page 34075]]

of individuals for which TSA is responsible. The scope of the 
rulemaking will include transportation workers from all modes of 
transportation who are required to undergo an STA, including surface 
maritime and aviation workers. In accordance with the Implementing 
Recommendations of the 9/11 Commission Act of 2007 (9/11 Act), the 
notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) will address STAs for frontline 
employees for public transportation agencies and railroad.
    In addition, TSA will propose fees to cover the cost of all STAs. 
TSA plans to improve efficiencies in processing STAs and streamline 
existing regulations by simplifying language and removing redundancies.
    As part of this proposed rule, TSA will propose revisions to the 
Alien Flight Student Program (AFSP) regulations. TSA published an 
interim final rule for ASFP on September 20, 2004. TSA regulations 
require aliens seeking to train at Federal Aviation Administration-
regulated flight schools to complete an application and undergo an STA 
prior to beginning flight training. There are four categories under 
which students currently fall; the nature of the STA depends on the 
student's category. TSA is considering changes to the AFSP that would 
improve the equity among fee payers and enable the implementation of 
new technologies to support vetting.
