SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Discussion The United States is signatory to the International Maritime Organization’s International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea, 1972, as amended. The special construction or purpose of some vessels makes them unable to comply with the light, shape, and sound signal provisions of 72 COLREGS. Under statutory law 1 and Coast Guard regulation,2 a vessel may instead meet alternative requirements and the vessel’s owner, builder, operator, or agent may apply for a certificate of alternative compliance (COAC). The Chief of the Inspections and Investigations Branch in each Coast Guard District office determines whether the vessel for which the COAC is sought complies as closely as possible with 72 COLREGS, and decides whether to issue the COAC. Once issued, a COAC remains valid until information supplied in the application for the COAC, or the terms of the COAC, become inapplicable to the vessel. Under the governing statute 3 and regulation,4 the Coast Guard must publish notice of each COAC issued by the District office.

The purpose of this notice is to seek general information and comment regarding the preliminary FIRM, and where applicable, the FIS report that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has provided to the affected communities. The FIRM and FIS report are the basis of the floodplain management measures that the community is required either to adopt or to show evidence of having in effect in order to qualify or remain qualified for participation in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). In addition, the FIRM and FIS report, once effective, will be used by insurance agents and others to calculate appropriate flood insurance premium rates for new buildings and the contents of those buildings. srobinson on DSK5SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:48 Jun 10, 2016 Jkt 238001 Comments are to be submitted on or before September 12, 2016.

These proposed flood hazard determinations, together with the floodplain management criteria required by 44 CFR 60.3, are the minimum that are required. They should not be construed to mean that the community must change any existing ordinances that are more stringent in their floodplain management requirements. The community may at any time enact stricter requirements of its own or pursuant to policies established by other Federal, State, or regional entities. These flood hazard determinations are used to meet the floodplain management requirements of the NFIP and also are used to calculate the appropriate flood insurance premium SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00072 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 rates for new buildings built after the FIRM and FIS report become effective. The communities affected by the flood hazard determinations are provided in the tables below. Any request for reconsideration of the revised flood hazard information shown on the Preliminary FIRM and FIS report that satisfies the data requirements outlined in 44 CFR 67.6(b) is considered an appeal. Comments unrelated to the flood hazard determinations also will be considered before the FIRM and FIS report become effective. Use of a Scientific Resolution Panel (SRP) is available to communities in support of the appeal resolution process. SRPs are independent panels of experts in hydrology, hydraulics, and other pertinent sciences established to review conflicting scientific and technical data and provide recommendations for resolution. Use of the SRP only may be exercised after FEMA and local communities have been engaged in a collaborative consultation process for at least 60 days without a mutually acceptable resolution of an appeal.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Discussion

    The United States is signatory to the International Maritime 
Organization's International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at 
Sea, 1972, as amended. The special construction or purpose of some 
vessels makes them unable to comply with the light, shape, and sound 
signal provisions of 72 COLREGS. Under statutory law \1\ and Coast 
Guard regulation,\2\ a vessel may instead meet alternative requirements 
and the vessel's owner, builder, operator, or agent may apply for a 
certificate of alternative compliance (COAC). The Chief of the 
Inspections and Investigations Branch in each Coast Guard District 
office determines whether the vessel for which the COAC is sought 
complies as closely as possible with 72 COLREGS, and decides whether to 
issue the COAC. Once issued, a COAC remains valid until information 
supplied in the application for the COAC, or the terms of the COAC, 
become inapplicable to the vessel. Under the governing statute \3\ and 
regulation,\4\ the Coast Guard must publish notice of each COAC issued 
by the District office.
