II. Background

    The Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) in 
the Federal Register on December 7, 1999, (64 FR 68416), entitled 
``Outer Continental Shelf Activities.'' In our NPRM, we proposed 
revisions of our Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) regulations that pertain 
to workplace safety and health on vessels and facilities engaged in the 
exploration for, or development or production of, minerals on the OCS. 
The Coast Guard initiated this rulemaking in response to the various 
advances that had changed the nature of the offshore industry since the 
last major revision of our OCS regulations in 1982. As detailed in the 
proposed regulatory text, this rulemaking would have reassessed all of 
our current OCS regulations in light of past experiences and new 
improvements in order to help make the OCS a safer work environment. 
The Coast Guard received comments from the public regarding the 
proposed rulemaking. These comments are available in the docket.

III. Withdrawal

    In the nearly 20 years since the Coast Guard published the NPRM and 
the comment period closed, the offshore industry has continued to grow 
and evolve. Due to the passage of time, advances in technology, and 
changes in industry practice, we found that much of what we proposed in 
the NPRM is now obsolete and no longer applicable to the modern OCS 
work environment. Consequently, the NPRM is no longer suitable as a 
basis for further rulemaking action. Accordingly, the Coast Guard is 
withdrawing the ``Outer Continental Shelf Activities'' proposed rule 
announced in an NPRM published December 7, 1999 (64 FR 68416).
    This document is issued under the authority of 5 U.S.C. 552(a), and 
43 U.S.C. 1333(d) and 1348(c).
