(2) Are there rules or reporting requirements that have become outdated and, if so, how can they be modernized to better accomplish their objective? (3) Are there requirements (e.g. flagging, certification, or training rules) that could be streamlined, reduced, or provided in an easier-to-access manner, such as online training and certification? (4) Are there rules from different agencies that involve similar, overlapping activities such as training, drills, or inspections that might be consolidated or coordinated to reduce the regulatory burden on the industry? (5) Are there reporting or other information collection requirements imposed by multiple regulatory agencies that involve similar, overlapping reporting that might be consolidated or coordinated to reduce the regulatory burden on the industry? (6) Are there rules or reporting requirements imposed by the United States and other countries—especially Canada and Mexico—that are inconsistent with one another to the point of creating barriers to commerce? Are there reporting requirements between Canada and the United States, particularly on the Great Lakes, that are similar to the point that the two countries may be able to share information, to the extent permissible by law, to reduce the burden on industry? (7) Are there rules that have not achieved their intended purpose or otherwise not operating as well as expected such that a modified, or different approach at lower cost should be considered? (8) Are there rules that are preventing or creating barriers to the adoption of new, innovative technologies in the maritime industry? (9) Are there rules preventing, curtailing, or causing the decision to outsource maritime related activities that would otherwise add value to the domestic economy? What types of economically beneficial maritime activities might be animated if these rules were abolished? (10) Do agencies currently collect information that they do not need or use effectively? (11) Are there regulations, reporting requirements, or regulatory processes that are unnecessarily complicated that could be made more efficient? (12) Are there rules or reporting requirements that have been overtaken VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:36 May 16, 2018 Jkt 244001 by technological developments? Can new technologies be leveraged to modify, streamline, or do away with existing regulatory or reporting requirements? (13) How can agencies that regulate the maritime sector best reduce regulatory costs while achieving the agencies’ statutory objectives, and how can they best identify those rules that might be modified, streamlined, or repealed? (14) What factors should agencies consider in selecting and prioritizing rules and reporting requirements for reform? (15) How can agencies obtain and analyze accurate, objective information and data about the costs and benefits of existing regulations? Are there existing sources of data to use to evaluate the current effects of regulations? This RFI is meant to inform agencies’ development of regulatory reform proposals. OIRA intends to make all submissions publicly available on www.regulations.gov. Neomi Rao, Administrator, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs.
