Discussion

    The authority for this notice is 5 U.S.C. 552(a) (``Administrative 
Procedure Act''), 46 U.S.C. 70110 (``Maritime Transportation Security 
Act''), and Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 
0170.1(II)(97.f). As delegated, section 70110(a) authorizes the Coast 
Guard to impose conditions of entry on vessels arriving in U.S. waters 
from ports that the Coast Guard has not found to maintain effective 
anti-terrorism measures.
    On August 18, 2016 the Coast Guard found that ports in the Republic 
of Djibouti failed to maintain effective anti-terrorism measures and 
that the Republic of Djibouti's designated authority's oversight, 
access control, security monitoring, security training programs, and 
security plans drills and exercises are all deficient.
    On February 6, 2017, as required by 46 U.S.C. 70109, the Republic 
of Djibouti was notified of this determination and given 
recommendations for improving antiterrorism measures and 90 days to 
respond. In May 2017 and September 2018, the Coast Guard revisited the 
Republic of Djibouti to review Djibouti's

progess on correcting the security deficiencies. The Coast Guard 
determined that Djibouti failed to maintain effective anti-terrorism 
measures with the exeptions of two port facilities: The Doraleh 
Container Terminal and the Doraleh Oil Terminal (Horizon).
    Accordingly, beginning May 30, 2019, the conditions of entry shown 
in Table 1 will apply to any vessel that visited a port in the Republic 
of Djibouti, with the exception of the Doraleh Container Terminal and 
the Doraleh Oil Terminal (Horizon), in its last five port calls.
