We made a draft policy available for public comment on May 27, 2016 (81 FR 33685), and held a public meeting on September 21, 2016, during the public comment period (81 FR 54584). The Coast Guard is aware of APC’s critical role in tank and non-tank vessel response preparedness, and therefore desires to thoroughly consider all facets of the policy’s implementation.

Additionally, the Coast Guard is interested in public comment regarding the exercise and verification aspects of the policy.

This notice is issued under authority of 5 U.S.C. 552. Dated: January 4, 2017. Joseph B. Loring, Office of Marine Environmental Response Policy.
