SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: Discussion The authority for this notice is 5 U.S.C. 552(a), 46 U.S.C. 70110, and Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1(II)(97.f). Section 70110(a) provides that the Secretary of Homeland Security may impose conditions of entry into the United States from ports that are not maintaining effective anti-terrorism measures. Section 70110(d) provides that these conditions may be removed upon Secretary’s determination that the measures are maintained. The Secretary delegated the authority to carry out the provisions of these sections to the Coast Guard. Section 552(a)(1)(E) requires an agency to provide a Federal Register notice to the public in regards to any amendment, revision or repeal of a rule adopted as authorized by law. The Regulatory Docket for this Notice (USCG–2017–0466) contains previous notices imposing or removing conditions of entry on vessels arriving from certain countries. On May 27, 2011, the Coast Guard determined that ports in the Republic of ˆ Cote d’Ivoire did not maintain effective ˆ anti-terrorism measures and that Cote d’Ivoire’s designated authority’s oversight, access control and cargo control remained deficient (76 FR 30954). However, since 2014 the Coast Guard has assessed and found that the port facilities listed in Table 1 do have effective anti-terrorism measures. As such, port facilities listed in Table 1 are exempted from the conditions of entry previously imposed. TABLE 1—EXEMPTED PORT FACILITIES Port Carena Shipyard .................. Terminal A Containers, Abidjan. IMO port No. CIABJ–0004 CIABJ–0015 Accordingly, beginning January 3, 2018, the conditions of entry shown in Table 2 below will apply to any vessel ˆ that visited a non-exempted Cote d’Ivoire port facility in its last five port calls. ˆ TABLE 2—CONDITIONS OF ENTRY FOR VESSELS VISITING COTE D’IVOIRE’S PORTS NOT LISTED IN TABLE 1 No. 1 ........................................... 2 ........................................... sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES 3 ........................................... 4 5 6 7 ........................................... ........................................... ........................................... ...........................................

As defined in the ISPS Code and incorporated herein, ‘‘Security Level 2’’ refers to the ‘‘level for which appropriate additional protective security measures shall be maintained for a period of time as a result of heightened risk of a security incident.’’ Ensure that each access point to the vessel is guarded and that the guards have total visibility of the exterior ˆ (both landside and waterside) of the vessel while the vessel is in ports in the Republic of Cote d’Ivoire. Guards may be provided by the vessel’s crew; however, additional crewmembers should be placed on the vessel if necessary to ensure that limits on maximum hours of work are not exceeded and/or minimum hours of rest are met, or provided by outside security forces approved by the vessel’s master and Company Security Officer. As defined in the ISPS Code and incorporated herein, ‘‘Company Security Officer’’ refers to the ‘‘person designated by the Company for ensuring that a ship security assessment is carried out; that a ship security plan is developed, submitted for approval, and thereafter implemented and maintained and for liaison with port facility security officers and the ship security officer.’’ ˆ Attempt to execute a Declaration of Security while in a port in the Republic of Cote d’Ivoire. Log all security actions in the vessel’s log; and Report actions taken to the cognizant Coast Guard Captain of the Port (COTP) prior to arrival into U.S. waters. In addition, based on the findings of the Coast Guard boarding or examination, the vessel may be required to ensure that each access point to the vessel is guarded by armed, private security guards and that they have total visibility of the exterior (both landside and waterside) of the vessel while in U.S. ports. The number and position of the guards has to be acceptable to the cognizant COTP prior to the vessel’s arrival.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Discussion

    The authority for this notice is 5 U.S.C. 552(a), 46 U.S.C. 70110, 
and Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1(II)(97.f). 
Section 70110(a) provides that the Secretary of Homeland Security may 
impose conditions of entry into the United States from ports that are 
not maintaining effective anti-terrorism measures. Section 70110(d) 
provides that these conditions may be removed upon Secretary's 
determination that the measures are maintained. The Secretary delegated 
the authority to carry out the provisions of these sections to the 
Coast Guard. Section 552(a)(1)(E) requires an agency to provide a 
Federal Register notice to the public in regards to any amendment, 
revision or repeal of a rule adopted as authorized by law. The 
Regulatory Docket for this Notice (USCG-2017-0466) contains previous 
notices imposing or removing conditions of entry on vessels arriving 
from certain countries.
    On May 27, 2011, the Coast Guard determined that ports in the 
Republic of C[ocirc]te d'Ivoire did not maintain effective anti-
terrorism measures and that C[ocirc]te d'Ivoire's designated 
authority's oversight, access control and cargo control remained 
deficient (76 FR 30954). However, since 2014 the Coast Guard has 
assessed and found that the port facilities listed in Table 1 do have 
effective anti-terrorism measures. As such, port facilities listed in 
Table 1 are exempted from the conditions of entry previously imposed.

                    Table 1--Exempted Port Facilities
------------------------------------------------------------------------
                  Port                             IMO port No.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Carena Shipyard.........................  CIABJ-0004
Terminal A Containers, Abidjan..........  CIABJ-0015
------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Accordingly, beginning January 3, 2018, the conditions of entry 
shown in Table 2 below will apply to any vessel that visited a non-
exempted C[ocirc]te d'Ivoire port facility in its last five port calls.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
1............................  Implement measures per the vessel's
                                security plan equivalent to Security

                                of C[ocirc]te d'Ivoire. As defined in
                                the ISPS Code and incorporated herein,
                                ``Security Level 2'' refers to the
                                ``level for which appropriate additional
                                protective security measures shall be
                                maintained for a period of time as a
                                result of heightened risk of a security
                                incident.''
2............................  Ensure that each access point to the
                                vessel is guarded and that the guards

                                (both landside and waterside) of the
                                vessel while the vessel is in ports in

                                and/or minimum hours of rest are met, or
                                provided by outside security forces

                                Company Security Officer. As defined in
                                the ISPS Code and incorporated herein,
                                ``Company Security Officer'' refers to
                                the ``person designated by the Company
                                for ensuring that a ship security
                                assessment is carried out; that a ship
                                security plan is developed, submitted
                                for approval, and thereafter implemented
                                and maintained and for liaison with port
                                facility security officers and the ship
                                security officer.''
4............................  Attempt to execute a Declaration of
                                Security while in a port in the Republic

5............................  Log all security actions in the vessel's
                                log; and

7............................  In addition, based on the findings of the
                                Coast Guard boarding or examination, the
                                vessel may be required to ensure that
                                each access point to the vessel is
                                guarded by armed, private security
                                guards and that they have total
                                visibility of the exterior (both
