The Department of the Navy (DoN) is amending its certifications and exemptions under the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea, 1972 (72 COLREGS), to reflect that the Deputy Assistant Judge Advocate General (DAJAG) (Admiralty and Maritime Law) has determined that USS CINCINNATI (LCS 20) is a vessel of the Navy which, due to its special construction and purpose, cannot fully comply with certain provisions of the 72 COLREGS without interfering with its special function as a naval ship. The intended effect of this rule is to warn mariners in waters where 72 COLREGS apply. DATES: This rule is effective October 31, 2018 and is applicable beginning October 19, 2018.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to the authority granted in 33 U.S.C. 1605, the DoN amends 32 CFR part 706. This amendment provides notice that the DAJAG (Admiralty and Maritime Law), under authority delegated by the Secretary of the Navy, has certified that USS CINCINNATI (LCS 20) is a vessel of the Navy which, due to its special construction and purpose, cannot fully comply with the following specific provisions of 72 COLREGS without interfering with its special function as a naval ship: Annex I, paragraph 2(a)(i), pertaining to the height of the forward masthead light above the hull; Annex I, paragraph 3(a), pertaining to the location of the forward masthead light in the forward quarter of the ship and the horizontal distance between the forward and after masthead light; Rule 21(a) and Annex I, paragraph 2(f)(i), requiring the masthead lights be above and clear of all other lights and obstructions; Annex I, paragraph 2(f)(ii) and Annex I, paragraph 3(c), pertaining to the horizontal and vertical spacing of task lights; and Rule 27(b)(i) and Annex I, paragraph 9(b), pertaining to the SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 visibility of task lights. The DAJAG (Admiralty and Maritime Law) has also certified that the lights involved are located in closest possible compliance with the applicable 72 COLREGS requirements. Moreover, it has been determined, in accordance with 32 CFR parts 296 and 701, that publication of this amendment for public comment prior to adoption is impracticable, unnecessary, and contrary to public interest since it is based on technical findings that the placement of lights on this vessel in a manner differently from that prescribed herein will adversely affect the vessel’s ability to perform its military functions.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: I. Background DoD is amending the DFARS to remove DFARS clause 252.211–7000, Acquisition Streamlining, and the associated clause prescription at DFARS 211.002–70. This clause is included in all solicitations and contracts for systems acquisition programs and requires contractors to: Prepare acquisition streamlining recommendations in accordance with the performance work statement; format and submit the recommendations in accordance with the contract data requirements list of the contract; and include the clause in all subcontracts valued over $1.5 million that are awarded in the performance of the contract. DoD may accept, modify, or reject the contractor’s recommendations. This clause was added to the DFARS to implement a requirement of DoD Directive (DoDD) 5000.43, Acquisition Streamlining. DoDD 5000.43 has been cancelled and replaced by DoD Instruction 5000.02, Operation of the Defense Acquisition System, which requires contractors to submit acquisition streamlining recommendations. Additionally, Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) subpart 7.1, Acquisition Plans, already includes acquisition streamlining and industry engagement as considerations to be made when preparing a written acquisition plan. As the implementing DoDD has been cancelled and FAR subpart 7.1 addresses acquisition streamlining, this DFARS clause is unnecessary and can be removed. The removal of this DFARS text supports a recommendation from the DoD Regulatory Reform Task Force. On February 24, 2017, the President signed Executive Order (E.O.) 13777, ‘‘Enforcing the Regulatory Reform Agenda,’’ which established a Federal policy ‘‘to alleviate unnecessary regulatory burdens’’ on the American people.

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Department of the Navy (DoN) is amending its 
certifications and exemptions under the International Regulations for 
Preventing Collisions at Sea, 1972 (72 COLREGS), to reflect that the 
Deputy Assistant Judge Advocate General (DAJAG) (Admiralty and Maritime 
Law) has determined that USS CINCINNATI (LCS 20) is a vessel of the 
Navy which, due to its special construction and purpose, cannot fully 
comply with certain provisions of the 72 COLREGS without interfering 
with its special function as a naval ship. The intended effect of this 
rule is to warn mariners in waters where 72 COLREGS apply.

DATES: This rule is effective October 31, 2018 and is applicable 
beginning October 19, 2018.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Lieutenant Commander Kyle Fralick, 
JAGC, U.S. Navy, Admiralty Attorney, (Admiralty and Maritime Law),

Patterson Ave. SE, Suite 3000, Washington Navy Yard, DC 20374-5066, 
telephone number: 202-685-5040.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to the authority granted in 33 
U.S.C. 1605, the DoN amends 32 CFR part 706.
    This amendment provides notice that the DAJAG (Admiralty and 
Maritime Law), under authority delegated by the Secretary of the Navy, 
has certified that USS CINCINNATI (LCS 20) is a vessel of the Navy 
which, due to its special construction and purpose, cannot fully comply 
with the following specific provisions of 72 COLREGS without 
interfering with its special function as a naval ship: Annex I, 
paragraph 2(a)(i), pertaining to the height of the forward masthead 
light above the hull; Annex I, paragraph 3(a), pertaining to the 
location of the forward masthead light in the forward quarter of the 
ship and the horizontal distance between the forward and after masthead 
light; Rule 21(a) and Annex I, paragraph 2(f)(i), requiring the 
masthead lights be above and clear of all other lights and 
obstructions; Annex I, paragraph 2(f)(ii) and Annex I, paragraph 3(c), 
pertaining to the horizontal and vertical spacing of task lights; and 
Rule 27(b)(i) and Annex I, paragraph 9(b), pertaining to the visibility 
of task lights. The DAJAG (Admiralty and Maritime Law) has also 
certified that the lights involved are located in closest possible 
compliance with the applicable 72 COLREGS requirements.
    Moreover, it has been determined, in accordance with 32 CFR parts 
296 and 701, that publication of this amendment for public comment 
prior to adoption is impracticable, unnecessary, and contrary to public 
interest since it is based on technical findings that the placement of 
lights on this vessel in a manner differently from that prescribed 
herein will adversely affect the vessel's ability to perform its 
military functions.
