United States Code II. Regulatory History We did not publish a notice of proposed rulemaking for this rule. Under Title 5 of the United States Code (U.S.C.), Section 553(b)(A), the Coast Guard finds that this final rule is exempt from notice and public comment rulemaking requirements because these changes involve rules of agency organization, procedure, or practice. In addition, the Coast Guard finds that notice and comment procedures are unnecessary for this final rule under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), as this rule consists of only technical and editorial corrections and these changes will have no substantive effect on the public. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that, for the same reasons, good cause exists for making this final rule effective upon publication in the Federal Register. III. Basis and Purpose This final rule, which becomes effective on June 28, 2019, makes technical and editorial corrections throughout titles 33 and 46 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). These changes are necessary to correct errors, change addresses, and make other nonsubstantive amendments that improve the clarity of the CFR. This rule does not create or change any substantive requirements. This final rule is issued under the authority of 5 U.S.C. 552(a) and 553; 14 U.S.C. 102 and 503; 33 U.S.C. 151, 499, 521, 2071, and 2735; 46 U.S.C. 2103, 3306, 3703, 5104, 6101, 7701, 70001, 70034, 70041(a), and 70114; and Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1. E:\FR\FM\28JNR1.SGM 28JNR1 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 125 / Friday, June 28, 2019 / Rules and Regulations IV. Discussion of the Rule The Coast Guard periodically issues technical, organizational, and conforming amendments to existing regulations in titles 33 and 46 of the CFR. These ‘‘technical amendments’’ provide the public with more accurate and current regulatory information, but do not change the effect on the public of any Coast Guard regulations. khammond on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with RULES Technical Amendments to Title 33 of the CFR This rule amends § 1.08–1(a)(11) by replacing an incorrect cross-reference to ‘‘33 CFR 88.05(h)’’ with the correct citation ‘‘33 CFR 83.01(g),’’ which contains the requirement that certain vessels carry a copy of the inland navigation rules. The 2014 ‘‘Changes to the Inland Navigation Rules’’ (79 FR 37898, July 2, 2014) amended § 88.05 so that it contains the rules for lights on law enforcement vessels. The 2014 ‘‘Changes to Inland Navigation Rules’’ also moved the ‘‘Copy of the Rules’’ requirement previously housed in § 88.05 to § 83.01(g), which states that operators of self-propelled vessels 12 meters or more in length must carry on board a copy of the inland navigation rules in part 83. This rule corrects the authority citation for part 26 and also revises § 26.08(a) to reflect the organizational change in office name from Assistant Commandant for ‘‘Marine Safety, Security and Environmental Protection’’ to Assistant Commandant for ‘‘Prevention Policy.’’ In § 80.750(b) and (f), this rule removes references to La Costa Test Pile North Light and Big Sarasota Pass Light 14, respectively, because these lights no longer exist. The Coast Guard replaces these references with exact coordinates to clarify the demarcation lines for the 72 International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea (COLREGS) navigation rules. The changes in § 80.753(a) and (d) include edits to the descriptions of the landmarks used in the COLREGS demarcation lines. These changes will align this section’s descriptions of the lines with the rest of the section’s descriptions by describing each demarcation as a line heading from south to north. In addition, the edits to this section clarify the points of demarcation by adding descriptive words like ‘‘jetty.’’ The Coast Guard also replaces a reference to ‘‘Light 7’’ in § 80.753(d) to ‘‘Light 3’’ because Light 7 was renamed Light 3. The final change in § 80.753(d) replaces the demarcation point, the Anclote River Cut B Range Rear Light, with the exact coordinates of VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:17 Jun 27, 2019 Jkt 247001 that location on Anclote Key because the Anclote River Cut B Range Rear Light no longer exists for our demarcation purposes. This rule deletes the demarcation points in § 80.810(c) and (d) because a National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration cartographer notified the Coast Guard that the ‘‘northernmost extremity’’ on Crooked Island and Shell Island no longer exist due to water movement over the land. The water moved over the landmasses so that the COLREGS waters in this location are closed off from the inland waters. The Coast Guard is deleting the references to these two demarcation points that no longer exist to provide accurate information to the public and to conform the regulations to fit the geography of the area as it currently exists. The changes in §§ 81.3, 81.5(a), 81.9, 89.3, 89.5, and 89.9 replace all references to the ‘‘Marine Safety Division’’ to reflect an organizational change to its current office name, which is ‘‘Prevention Division.’’ In § 83.24(h), this rule adds ‘‘shapes’’ to the inland navigation rule for towing vessels to align the regulations with the 72 COLREGS, which is implemented in this part. This section refers the reader to § 83.24(e) and (g) for certain light and shape display requirements and both referenced paragraphs include light and shape display requirements for towing vessels to indicate the presence of a vessel or object. The 72 COLREGS allow exceptions for both lights and shapes display requirements when compliance with the rules is impossible, and this section implements that exception. Although we inadvertently omitted references to the shapes, we have always applied these regulations to both lights and shapes. In §§ 83.26(f)(1), and 83.27(d)(iv)(1)(B) and (2)(A), this rule replaces ‘‘all around’’ with ‘‘all round’’ to match the spelling to the 72 COLREGS, which are implemented in these sections. In § 83.26(f)(ii)(2)(B), this rule updates an incorrect cross-reference to the appropriate paragraph. The crossreference this rule updates is for the light signal that fishing vessels must display when shooting or hauling their nets, or when their nets come upon an obstruction. These lighting requirements are listed in paragraph (f)(ii)(1) of this section, instead of paragraph (a). This rule amends § 89.27(a) and (b) and the header to § 89.27 by updating all cross-references to ‘‘Inland Rule 24(i)’’ to the correct citation, ‘‘Inland Rule 24(j).’’ This edit comes as a result of the 2017 Technical Amendments final rule (82 FR 35073, 35080, July 28, PO 00000 Frm 00015 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 30871 2017) that changed the citation in 33 CFR 83.24 (Inland Rule 24). This rule adds subparts A through J to 33 CFR part 100 to organize the permanent and temporary special local regulations (SLRs) by their Coast Guard district. We are adding subparts with the districts’ titles to improve the organization and readability of this section. When the Coast Guard issues a permanent SLR within District 17 in 33 CFR part 100, we will add sections to subpart J for District 17 at that time. The following table shows the organizational changes: TABLE 1—NEW CFR PART 100 SUBPART ORGANIZATION CFR subpart A .............................................. B .............................................. C .............................................. D .............................................. E .............................................. F .............................................. G ............................................. H .............................................. I ............................................... J .............................................. SLR designation General. 1st district. 5th district. 7th district. 8th district. 9th district. 11th district. 13th district. 14th district. 17th district. Previously, the SLRs’ section number was the mechanism that organized the SLRs in part 100 by district number. However, part 100 did not explicitly call attention to the fact that the section number correlated with the Coast Guard district, making it an ineffective organization tool for the public to use. In the ‘‘General’’ provisions subpart, this rule also adds § 100.35(d), which contains a description of how 33 CFR part 100 is organized by district. This rule corrects the names of the drawbridges in §§ 117.149 and 117.163(b) from 3rd Street and 4th Street drawbridges to Third Street and Fourth Street drawbridges. In § 117.175(b), we put the word ‘‘counties’’ in lowercase to fix a capitalization errors. Also in § 117.193, we change the words ‘‘highway’’ and ‘‘bicycle’’ to lowercase to fix capitalization errors. In § 117.523, this rule corrects the name and mile marker for the Barter’s Island Bridge on the Back River in Maine from ‘‘Maine Department of Transportation highway bridge, mile 4.6’’ to ‘‘Barter’s Island Bridge, mile 2.0.’’ This rule assigns the content that was in § 117.622 into § 117.621. This rule also reassigns content that was in § 117.621 into § 117.622 and renames the section header of § 117.622 to ‘‘Weymouth Fore River.’’ These revisions restore alphabetical order to E:\FR\FM\28JNR1.SGM 28JNR1 khammond on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with RULES 30872 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 125 / Friday, June 28, 2019 / Rules and Regulations part 117 after ‘‘Fore River’’ was renamed as ‘‘Weymouth Fore River.’’ This rule amends § 117.755 by updating the bridge name from ‘‘Monmouth Country highway bridge’’ to its new name ‘‘Sea Bright Bridge.’’ In § 117.791(c) this rule updates the name of the ‘‘CSX Transportation bridge’’ to its new name, ‘‘Livingston Ave (Amtrak) Bridge.’’ In § 117.791(d) this rule updates the name of the ‘‘state highway bridge’’ to its new name, ‘‘TroyMenands Bridge.’’ In § 117.791(e), this rule updates the name of the ‘‘highway bridge’’ to its new name, ‘‘Troy-Green Bridge.’’ In § 151.1021(b)(1), this rule updates the title of the Assistant Commandant for Prevention Policy because the text omitted ‘‘Policy’’ from the command’s name. This rule revises §§ 151.1513 and 151.2036 by providing an email address to accommodate email delivery of extension requests for ballast water management systems under those sections. This rule amends § 151.2005 by removing the definition of ‘‘International Maritime Organization (IMO) ballast water management guidelines’’ because it is no longer used in part 151 nor in practice. The Coast Guard stopped using the IMO ballast water standards because the standards were replaced by the International Convention for the Control and Management of Ships’ Ballast Water and Sediments on September 8, 2017, and the United States is not a party to the Convention. In order to avoid confusion and conform with the updated standards, we are deleting the IMO ballast water management guidelines definition in this part. This rule updates a Coast Guard website address in § 151.2005, within the definition of Shipboard Technology Evaluation Program (STEP), where the public can view the STEP guidance and applications. In § 151.2026(b) we added an email address as an alternate way for the public to submit requests for determinations to the Marine Safety Center. In § 151.2065, this rule updates the office names for Environmental Standards Division from ‘‘CG–05224’’ to ‘‘(CG–OES–3)’’ and also updates the title of the Assistant Commandant for Prevention Policy (CG–5P) from its previous title, ‘‘Assistant Commandant for Maritime Safety, Security, and Stewardship (CG–5)’’ to conform with organizational name changes. This rule revises the definition sections in both §§ 154.1020 and 155.1020 by replacing the definition for VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:17 Jun 27, 2019 Jkt 247001 ‘‘Dispersant Mission Planner 2 or (DMP2)’’ with the definition for ‘‘Estimated Dispersant System Potential Calculator (EDSP).’’ The Estimated Dispersant System Potential Calculator was developed as revision 1 of the DMP2 because the DMP2 programming environment was outdated and was no longer supported on any system. DMP2 is no longer available for use, and the EDSP is the current program used by the industry. The basic algorithms used in the DMP2 are the same in the EDSP, so there is no change in the public’s expectations or requirements. We are updating these definition sections to conform to the technology currently used by industry and accepted by the Coast Guard. For the same reasons, this rule replaces all references to ‘‘Dispersant Mission Planner 2’’ or ‘‘DMP2’’ with ‘‘Estimated Dispersant System Potential Calculator’’ and ‘‘EDSP’’ in § 154.1045(i)(2)(ii); Appendix C to part 154, paragraphs 8.2.1.2 and 8.2.3(i); § 155.1050; and Appendix B to part 155, paragraphs 8.2.1.2 and 8.2.3(i). In § 156.210(b), this rule replaces the out-of-date office contact ‘‘CG–5’’ with ‘‘CG–ENG’’ because CG–ENG is the correct office for the public to submit requests to use lighter hazardous materials other than oil. In § 161.2, titled ‘‘Definitions’’, this rule inserts the definitions for ‘‘Center’’ and ‘‘Published’’ that were previously located in a second separate definitions section in § 161.17. We are moving these two definitions into § 161.2 so that all the definitions for this part can be found in the same place. The definitions are unchanged. The Coast Guard also corrects a capitalization error in § 161.2. In §§ 161.2, 161.12, Note 6 to Table 1 to § 161.12(c), Table 161.70(d), and Table 161.70(f), the Coast Guard is replacing all references to ‘‘sector’’ with ‘‘zone’’ to avoid confusion with sector commands and conform with the current practice to call these areas ‘‘zones’’. In addition, in Table 1 to § 161.12, this rule replaces the reference to the ‘‘Strait of Juan de Fuca’’ with ‘‘Salish Sea,’’ which is the new name for that body of water. In § 161.4, this rule provides a web address to access the Vessel Traffic Services User Manual. In § 161.5(b) we remove the text ‘‘Vessel Traffic Center’’ and leave only the acronym, ‘‘VTC’’ because we moved the definition and initial introduction to the acronym to § 161.2, which precedes this reference. This rule corrects a typographical error in line 12 of Table 1 to § 161.12(c) by removing the apostrophe in ‘‘St. Mary’s.’’ The name of the river, St. PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Marys River, has been without a possessive apostrophe since 1982. The Coast Guard deletes § 161.17 and moves the section’s definitions for ‘‘Center’’ and ‘‘Published’’ to § 161.2 where all the other definitions applicable to this part are listed. The Coast Guard is correcting an erroneous edit made to § 161.55(c)(3) by a technical and conforming amendment final rule in 2014 (79 FR 38421). The 2014 technical amendment final rule unintentionally changed the type of vessel exempted from the regulations from vessels of less than 100 meters to vessels greater than 100 meters in length, while saying the ‘‘changes are editorial and do not alter the VTS Special Area Operating Requirements prescribed in 33 CFR 161.55(c)’’ (79 FR 38424). This provision’s original purpose was, and is, to exempt smaller vessels from the regulations intended to help the larger commercial vessel industry safely navigate the narrow and tricky waters of Puget Sound. It was never the Coast Guard’s intent to exempt larger vessels from the precautions put in place for their benefit. Therefore, the Coast Guard is revising the text in § 161.55(c)(3) from exempting vessels greater than 100 meters in length to how it was written before the 2014 Technical Amendment final rule, in order to exempt only vessels of less than 100 meters from certain requirements in that part. The inaccurately edited rule has not been enforced according to how it was rewritten. Instead, the Coast Guard acknowledged the mistake and continued its exemptions for vessels less than 100 meters only. This clarifying technical amendment will not result in a change in expectations or obligations based on how § 161.55(c)(3) has always been enforced. In § 164.72(b)(2)(ii)(C), the text ‘‘the ACOE or’’ is removed as a source for river current tables because the United States Army Corps of Engineers (ACOE) no longer issues river current tables. The alternate river current issuing authority already listed in this section is ‘‘a river authority.’’ We are removing the ACOE as a river authority to reduce confusion. The requirements of the section are unchanged. This rule also corrects a punctuation error in § 164.72(b)(2)(ii)(C). Technical Amendments to Title 46 of the CFR In § 2.01–7, Table 2.01–7(a), under the fourth column covering ‘‘Vessels inspected and certificated under Subchapter I—Cargo and Miscellaneous Vessels,’’ on line (2) entitled ‘‘Motor, seagoing motor vessels ≥300 gross tons’’, E:\FR\FM\28JNR1.SGM 28JNR1 khammond on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with RULES Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 125 / Friday, June 28, 2019 / Rules and Regulations the Coast Guard is removing a comma that was erroneously added by a technical amendment so that it is clearer that these regulations apply to the regulated vessels even when they are not engaged in trade. This rule removes the second comma in the following sentence in Table 2.01–7(a): ‘‘All vessels, including recreational vessels, not engaged in trade.’’ In 2009, we issued a rule that was intended to only make non-substantive changes related to the definition of ‘‘ferry’’ in 46 CFR, but in the process, that technical and conforming amendment rule (74 FR 63617, December 4, 2009) inserted an extra comma in the sentence quoted above. The comma unintentionally altered the meaning of the sentence, so that in both tables instead of covering all vessels ‘‘including recreational vessels not engaged in trade,’’ the sentence with two commas now may be read to include a vessel only if it was not engaged in trade—regardless of the nature of the vessel, recreational or commercial. This erroneous comma introduced by the 2009 technical amendment went unnoticed again in 2013, when we included the comma in Table 2.01–7(a) in a final rule titled ‘‘Seagoing Barges’’ (78 FR 53285, August 29, 2013). Neither the 2009 technical amendment nor the 2013 ‘‘Seagoing Barges’’ final rule mentioned any intention of substantively changing column 4 of Table 2.01.7(a) to cover vessels only when they were engaged in trade, nor did the Coast Guard ever enforce it that way. This rule updates the delivery mailing addresses for payment by check in § 2.10–20(d)(1)(ii) through (iii) and 2.10–20(d)(2)(ii) through (iii). In § 10.203(a), this rule deletes paragraph (a), and redesignates paragraphs (b) through (d) as (a) through (c). Section 10.203(a) stated that until April 15, 2014, mariners with a merchant mariner document or similar license with a restriction on it did not have to carry a merchant mariner credential (MMC), as required by this chapter. Since April 15, 2014 has passed, all mariners required to hold a license or endorsement must hold an MMC. As a result, the Coast Guard is deleting the obsolete grandfathering clause in § 10.203(a) to conform to the current regulations and to avoid confusion. In § 10.209(d), this rule adds a crossreference that was inadvertently left out of the initial rulemaking. Section 10.209(d) describes the methods of submitting an MMC application and points the public to various sections that describe a complete MMC application. This rule adds § 10.223 to VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:17 Jun 27, 2019 Jkt 247001 the list of sections that describe a complete MMC package. Section 10.223 contains the requirements for an application to modify or remove limitations on MMC endorsements, such as tonnage limitations or geographical route restrictions. We are adding this section to the list of references describing complete applications to be comprehensive in pointing to all types of complete applications, which was the intent of this section. In the supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking titled ‘‘Consolidation of Merchant Mariner Qualification Credentials’’ (72 FR 3605, January 25, 2007), we describe why we did not include the reference originally in § 10.209(d). For that section, we decided to separate the original application requirements from the renewal requirements because ‘‘[w]hen we attempted to list all of the requirements for originals that renewals, duplicates and/or raises in grade are exempted from, we found the maze of crossreferences to be needlessly confusing’’ (72 FR 3631, January 25, 2007). We unintentionally omitted the reference to § 10.223 for modifying the scope or limitations and adding the reference to § 10.209(d) will not change the requirements for modifying or removing limitations or the scope of a MMC. This rule amends § 10.221(b) by removing the reference dates, ‘‘Beginning April 15, 2009,’’ and ‘‘Until April 15, 2009, proof of citizenship or alien status must be submitted by appearing at a Regional Exam Center’’ because these provisions are no longer applicable after the referenced date. What remains in § 10.221(b) after this amendment is the longstanding requirement that proof of citizenship must be submitted to the Transportation Security Administration with the applicant’s Transportation Worker Identification Credential application in accordance with 49 CFR 1572.17(a)(11). The requirements of this section remain unchanged by this amendment. In § 10.229(b), this rule deletes the second and third sentences because they reference what the Coast Guard will issue for duplicate credentials up until April 15, 2014. Because the provision is no longer applicable after the referenced date, the Coast Guard is removing this obsolete provision. In §§ 10.232(e)(1), 10.232(e)(2)(i), 11.211(c)(2), 11.301(b)(1), 11.430(e), and 11.465(a), this rule removes all references in the text to ‘‘upgrade,’’ ‘‘raise-of-grade,’’ or ‘‘raise in grade’’ and replaces them with the text ‘‘raise of grade’’ to standardize the terminology through these sections and eliminate any ambiguity that could result from PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 30873 having three references with an identical meaning. In Table 1 to § 10.239, the Coast Guard is replacing all references to ‘‘§ 12.601(c)’’ with ‘‘§ 12.602(a)’’ within the ‘‘First aid and CPR’’ column to revise an incorrect cross-reference. Section 12.602(a) contains the standards of competence for basic training, including first aid training, that STCW endorsement applicants must meet for the listed STCW endorsements in Table 1 to § 10.239. This rule removes from title 46 the grandfathering provisions in § 10.301(g)(1), (2), (3), and (5) because the delayed implementation date or final date for using these provisions as alternate means of compliance expired on January 1, 2017. Section 10.301(g)(1) stated that all candidates who apply for a MMC with seagoing service or training performed on or after March 24, 2014 or who apply for the MMC after January 1, 2017 have to comply with the requirements of this section. Since the date for when the section became applicable to all applicants passed on January 1, 2017, the grandfathering provision has not been available. All applicants must meet the requirements of this section and the grandfathering provision is obsolete because any new applicant will not be able to invoke the provision. Enough time has passed that the Coast Guard believes that the provision is no longer applicable to any mariner or Coast Guard-approved courses, programs, or training. To avoid misunderstanding on the requirements of this section, we are removing these obsolete provisions from the regulations. In § 10.305(a)(2), the Coast Guard is removing the qualifier for ‘‘After January 1, 2017’’ because the referenced date has passed and all applicants for STCW endorsements under this part should be in compliance with this section. The grandfathering deadline is no longer relevant to this part since all are required to meet the vision requirements outlined in this section. Additional changes made by this rule to § 10.305(a)(2) include replacing ‘‘meets’’ with ‘‘previously met’’ because it is unlikely that a mariner meets the vision requirements and suffers vision loss at the same time. The Coast Guard is changing the language to past tense to undo this anomaly and avoid confusion. There is no change in the vision requirements in § 10.305(a)(2) as a result of this technical amendment. Moreover, in § 10.305(c) this rule replaces an outdated reference to the ‘‘MMC’’ with ‘‘medical certificate’’ to conform with the National Maritime Center’s actual practice to place the E:\FR\FM\28JNR1.SGM 28JNR1 khammond on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with RULES 30874 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 125 / Friday, June 28, 2019 / Rules and Regulations vision waiver limitation on the medical certificate, rather than the MMC. The misalignment between the inaccurate regulation and actual practice caused confusion for the affected population, so we are conforming the text to correctly state that the vision waiver limitation should be placed on the medical certificate. This rule removes from title 46 the grandfathering provision in § 10.410(f) because the delayed implementation date or final date for using them as means for alternate compliance expired on January 1, 2017. Section 10.410(f) stated that all Coast Guard-approved STCW endorsement courses, programs, and training had to meet the requirements of part 10 by January 1, 2017. This reference date has passed and all courses must be in compliance. These provisions are no longer applicable to any mariner or Coast Guard-approved courses, programs, or training. To avoid misunderstandings on the requirements of this section, we are removing these obsolete provisions from the regulations. In § 10.402(b), this rule updates the subject office name from ‘‘Office of Vessel Activities (CG–CVC)’’ to ‘‘Office of Merchant Mariner Credentialing’’ to reflect organizational changes. Within this same section, this rule edits the final sentence to say ‘‘and include the following:’’ to start the list of items that must be included in a curriculum package. This rule corrects a cross-reference in § 11.201(b) by replacing § 11.467(i) with 11.467(h) as the exception to the requirement that mariners must be proficient in the English language. Section 11.467(i) does not exist. The correct paragraph (h) states that applicants for operator of uninspected passenger vessels of less than 100 GRT who speak Spanish, but not English, may operate in the vicinity of Puerto Rico. This rule removes the grandfathering provisions from § 11.301(g)(1) through (5) because the established date has already passed and all renewals and new candidates for mariner credentials must now meet the requirements of part 11. Paragraphs (g)(1) through (5) in § 11.301 permitted the Coast Guard to issue STCW endorsements that met the older requirements of this part before it was amended on March 24, 2014, until January 1, 2017. Because January 1, 2017, has passed, the Coast Guard can no longer issue the certifications under previous versions of the rules. The grandfathering provisions in § 11.301(g)(1) exempted candidates who started training and sea service before March 24, 2014 from certain VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:17 Jun 27, 2019 Jkt 247001 requirements in part 11 until January 1, 2017. Paragraph (g)(1) explicitly states that all mariner applications for credentials under part 11 must comply with the requirements of this part after January 1, 2017. Also, this final rule removes the second grandfathering provision in § 11.301(g)(2) that exempted seafarers holding an STCW endorsement prior to March 24, 2014, from having to complete any additional training until January 1, 2017. Because the referenced date has passed, mariners can no longer use this training exemption. The removal of these grandfathering provisions will have no effect on any mariner because, according to the text, all mariners applying for, renewing, or upgrading credentials after January 1, 2017 must comply with the current requirements of part 11. In §§ 11.305, 11.307, 11.311, and 11.313, this rule replaces all references to ‘‘shiphandling’’ with ‘‘ship handling’’ to conform to how it is spelled in other regulations and international standards. In Table 1 to § 11.309(e), this rule replaces the reference to ‘‘A–II/2’’ with ‘‘A–II/1’’ in the ‘‘Competence’’ column heading to correct the location of the standards of competency. Section 11.309 contains the requirements for an STCW endorsement as an Officer in charge of navigational watch on vessels of 500 gross tonnage (GT) or more. The updated STCW table reference, A–II/1, also contains the requirements for this rating. In Table 1 to § 11.311(d), this rule replaces the reference to ‘‘A–II/3’’ with ‘‘A–II/2’’ in the ‘‘Competence’’ column heading to correct the location of the standards of competency. Section 11.311 contains the requirements for an STCW endorsement as a master of vessels of 500 GT or more and less than 3,000 GT. The updated STCW table reference, A–II/2, also contains the requirements for this rating. In § 11.315(c) and Table 1 to § 11.315(d), this rule replaces the references to STCW Table ‘‘A–II/3’’ with ‘‘A–II/2’’ to correctly reference the standards of competency for an STCW endorsement as a master of vessels of less than 500 GT in § 11.315. The updated STCW Table reference, A–II/2, also contains the requirements for this rating. In § 11.319(c) and Table 1 to § 11.319(d), this rule replaces both STCW table citations ‘‘A–II/3’’ with the correct Table ‘‘A–II/1.’’ Section 11.319 contains the requirements for an endorsement as an officer in charge of a navigational watch of vessels of less than 500 GT operational level. In § 11.319(a), it states that an ‘‘officer in PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 charge of a navigational watch serving on a seagoing ship of less than 500 GT not engaged on near-coastal voyages shall hold a certificate of competency for ships of 500 GT or more.’’ The previous STCW table reference to A–II/ 3 contains the requirements for officers in charge of navigational watch and for masters on ships of less than 500 GT limited to near-coastal voyages. Since the regulations in § 11.319 are not limited to near coastal voyages, STCW Table A–II/1, which is titled ‘‘Specification of minimum standard of competence for officers in charge of a navigational watch on ships of 500 GT or more,’’ contains the correct and intended competencies for this requirement. This correction conforms the section to the regulations as written and consistently interpreted without affecting the mariner’s obligations under this section. Also within § 11.319, this rule fixes two incorrect cross-references in footnotes 2 and 3 to Table 1 to § 11.319(d) to their correct paragraphs within this section. These footnotes reiterate that Table 1 to § 11.319(d) is illustrative and not all-inclusive, but that the mariner must complete the items in the referenced paragraphs of this section as well. There is no change in the obligations of the public by correcting these cross-references. In the ‘‘Competence’’ column heading of Table 1 to § 11.331(e), this rule corrects a reference to the STCW table. This section, § 11.331, is for chief engineer officer competence on ships powered by main propulsion machinery of less than 3,000 kW. The incorrect reference to STCW Table A–III/2 contains the competencies for chief engineer officers on ships powered by main propulsion machinery of 3,000 kW propulsion power or more. The correct STCW table reference is A–III/3, which contains the minimum competencies to qualify as a chief engineer officer on ships powered by main propulsion machinery of less than 3,000 kW. This change aligns the table with the references in the regulatory text. For similar reasons, this rule also corrects the ‘‘Competence’’ column heading of Table 1 to § 11.333(d), to the correct STCW table. Section 11.333 is for second engineer officer competence on ships powered by main propulsion machinery of less than 3,000 kW. The incorrect reference to STCW Table A– III/2 contains the competencies for chief and second engineer officers on ships powered by main propulsion machinery of 3,000 kW propulsion power or more. The correct STCW table reference is A– III/3, which contains the minimum competencies to qualify as a second E:\FR\FM\28JNR1.SGM 28JNR1 khammond on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with RULES Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 125 / Friday, June 28, 2019 / Rules and Regulations engineer officer on ships powered by main propulsion machinery of less than 3,000 kW. This change aligns the table with the STCW references in the regulatory text. This rule revises § 11.464(g)(1) by replacing an erroneous cross-reference to paragraph (f) with a corrected crossreference to paragraph (e) as the source of the exception to having a minimum of 30 days of training and observation on towing vessels. Paragraph (f) of this section contains the requirement that companies maintain evidence that the vessel operator is properly qualified, which is not relevant to the 30 days of training minimum mentioned in paragraph(g)(1). Paragraph (e) in § 11.464 contains the requirement that mariners applying for the Master of towing vessels on the Western Rivers endorsement must possess a minimum 90 days of observation and training, instead of the 30 day minimum in paragraph in (g)(1). In the supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking (SNPRM) preceding the final rule that implemented this section, this section (previously § 11.464(i)(1)) correctly cross referenced the western river exception that is currently in paragraph (e) (76 FR 45908, 46010, Aug. 1, 2011). However, the Coast Guard’s 2013 final rule that implemented these sections mentions that three paragraphs in § 11.464 of the SNPRM’s proposed text were left out of the final rule for more consideration and the cross-reference was not updated accordingly (78 FR 77796, 77829 and 77937, Dec. 24, 2013). This rule corrects the reference in § 11.480(b)(2) to ‘‘Gulf Intercoastal waterways (GIWW)’’ to its accurate reference, ‘‘Gulf Intracoastal waterways (GIWW).’’ In § 11.603 titled, ‘‘Requirements for radio officers’ endorsements,’’ this rule updates the name of licenses issued by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for radio telegraph operator licenses because on May 20, 2013, the FCC consolidated the First and Second class Radiotelegraph Operator Certificates into a one single license class called the Radiotelegraph Operator License (T). To conform to the updated FCC license structure, this rule removes the references to ‘‘first or second class,’’ so that the section reflects the current name of the same licenses. This rule adds a ‘‘(T)’’ to the end of the license name to reflect the FCC’s abbreviation for the license name. This rule corrects a cross-reference to the definition of ‘‘near-coastal voyage’’ in § 11.1105(d) from § 11.301(h) to § 10.107. Section 11.301(h) contains regulations for mariners holding both a STCW and national endorsements on VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:17 Jun 27, 2019 Jkt 247001 small vessels in domestic, near-coastal voyages, but does not contain a definition of near coastal voyages. This technical amendment changes the citation to ‘‘§ 10.107,’’ the definition section for subchapter B, which does contain the definition of ‘‘near-coastal voyage.’’ This rule amends § 12.603 by removing paragraph (b), which refers to a provision that was applicable only until January 1, 2017. Because the referenced deadline has passed and this provision is no longer applicable to any qualifications for the STCW endorsement as able seafarer-deck, we are removing it to avoid confusion as to its applicability. To account for the deletion of § 12.603(b), this rule also renumbers the subsections and corrects a cross-reference. In the title of Table 1 to § 12.603(e), we update the crossreference to § 12.603(d) to reflect the renumbering. This rule removes the grandfathering clauses for STCW rating endorsements located in § 12.603(c)(1) through (4) because all four of the provisions have not been applicable to any merchant mariner since January 1, 2017, according to the regulatory text and practice. This rule also removes § 12.601(c)(1), which states that after January 1, 2017 the merchant mariner applicant must meet the provisions of part 12. Removing these provisions will have no effect on any mariner because all mariners applying for, renewing, or upgrading credentials after January 1, 2017 must comply with the current requirements in part 12. In order to conform to the requirements part 12 of title 46 and to improve the clarity of the regulations, the Coast Guard is removing the out-of-date grandfathering provisions listed in these sections. Similarly in § 12.607, this rule deletes paragraph (b), which refers to a provision that was applicable only until January 1, 2017. Because the referenced deadline has passed and this provision is no longer applicable to any qualifications for the STCW endorsement for able seafarer-engine, we are removing it to avoid confusion as to its applicability. To account for the deletion of § 12.607(b), this rule also renumbers the subsections and corrects a cross-reference. In the title of Table 1 to § 12.607(e) we update the crossreference to § 12.607(d) to reflect the renumbering. In § 12.613(a)(3), the text ‘‘§ 12.601(c)’’ is replaced with the text ‘‘§ 12.602’’ to correct a longstanding error in the cross-reference. Section 12.601(c) does not address basic training requirements, which is the subject of § 12.613(a)(3). Section 12.602 addresses PO 00000 Frm 00019 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 30875 the standard of competence for basic training. This rule updates an incorrect crossreference to subpart J in § 15.530(b)(4)(iv) to subpart I, because the training for non-resident alien crewmembers is contained in subpart I of the referenced subchapter. In paragraphs (c)(1), (d)(1), and (e)(1) of § 15.860, this rule corrects the spelling of ‘‘and’’ and ‘‘or.’’ Also in § 15.860, this rule adds a period to the end of each of the following paragraphs: (b)(3), (c)(2), (d)(2), (e)(2), (f)(1), (f)(2), (f)(3), (f)(4), (g), and (h)(1). In both § 15.860(f) and (h), this rule adds colons to the end of the paragraph to correct missing punctuation. In § 15.1101(a)(2), this rule adds the missing term ‘‘near coastal’’ between ‘‘domestic’’ and ‘‘voyages’’ to correct an omission of language that was inadvertently left out of this subparagraph. Adding the term aligns the text with the terminology used in the international standards and other regulations within this subchapter, which refer to ‘‘domestic, near-coastal voyages.’’ There will not be any change in the obligations of the public by conforming the language to the international standards and regulations. In the periodic drug testing requirements for § 16.220(a), this rule replaces an incorrect cross-reference to § 10.227(e) with a corrected crossreference to § 10.227(g). Paragraph (g) is the proper reference here because it contains the provisions for those who are unwilling or unable to pass drug tests for the purpose of renewing a credential. Section 10.227(e) contains the unrelated professional requirements for renewing a credential. This rule amends the authority citation for part 26 by removing a repealed Title 46 U.S.C. statutory authority and replacing it with the correct Title 46 statutory authorities for regulating uninspected passenger vessels. In § 28.210(b)(1)(ii), this rule corrects an incorrect cross-reference to another section within this chapter for the courses approved by the Coast Guard for first aid equipment and training. In §§ 162.060–14(b) and 162.060– 42(a)(3), this rule adds the email addresses for the Marine Safety Center as an alternate method of contact. V. Regulatory Analyses We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and Executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses based on these statutes or Executive orders. E:\FR\FM\28JNR1.SGM 28JNR1 30876 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 125 / Friday, June 28, 2019 / Rules and Regulations A. Regulatory Planning and Review Executive Orders 12866 (Regulatory Planning and Review) and 13563 (Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review) direct agencies to assess the costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, if regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize net benefits (including potential economic, environmental, public health and safety effects, distributive impacts, and equity). Executive Order 13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and benefits, of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting flexibility. Executive Order 13771 (Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs) directs agencies to reduce regulation and control regulatory costs and provides that ‘‘for every one new regulation issued, at least two prior regulations be identified for elimination, and that the cost of planned regulations be prudently managed and controlled through a budgeting process.’’ The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has not designated this rule a significant regulatory action under section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866. Accordingly, OMB has not reviewed it. Because this rule is not a significant regulatory action, this rule is exempt from the requirements of Executive Order 13771. See the OMB Memorandum titled ‘‘Guidance Implementing Executive Order 13771, titled ‘Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs’ ’’ (April 5, 2017). This rule involves nonsubstantive changes and internal agency practices and procedures; it will not impose any additional costs on the public. The benefit of the nonsubstantive changes is increased clarity of regulations. khammond on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with RULES B. Small Entities Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601–612, we have considered whether this rule would have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. The term ‘‘small entities’’ comprises small businesses, not-for-profit organizations that are independently owned and operated and are not dominant in their fields, and governmental jurisdictions with populations of less than 50,000. This rule is not preceded by a notice of proposed rulemaking. Therefore, it is exempt from the requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601–612). The Regulatory Flexibility Act does not apply when notice and comment rulemaking is not required. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:17 Jun 27, 2019 Jkt 247001 This rule consists of technical, organizational, and conforming amendments and does not have any substantive effect on the regulated industry or small businesses. Therefore, the Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. C. Assistance for Small Entities Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996, Public Law 104– 121, we offer to assist small entities in understanding this rule so that they can better evaluate its effects on them and participate in the rulemaking. The Coast Guard will not retaliate against small entities that question or complain about this rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard. D. Collection of Information This rule calls for no new collection of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 44 U.S.C. 3501– 3520. E. Federalism H. Civil Justice Reform This rule meets applicable standards in sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of Executive Order 12988 (Civil Justice Reform) to minimize litigation, eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden. I. Protection of Children We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13045 (Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks). This rule is not an economically significant rule and would not create an environmental risk to health or risk to safety that might disproportionately affect children. J. Indian Tribal Governments This rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 13175 (Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments), because it would not have a substantial direct effect on one or more Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes. A rule has implications for federalism under Executive Order 13132 (Federalism) if it has a substantial direct effect on States, on the relationship between the national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13132 and have determined that it is consistent with the fundamental federalism principles and preemption requirements described in Executive Order 13132. K. Energy Effects F. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act L. Technical Standards The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995, 2 U.S.C. 1531–1538, requires Federal agencies to assess the effects of their discretionary regulatory actions. In particular, the Act addresses actions that may result in the expenditure by a State, local, or tribal government, in the aggregate, or by the private sector of $100,000,000 (adjusted for inflation) or more in any one year. Although this rule will not result in such expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble. The National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act, codified as a note to 15 U.S.C. 272, directs agencies to use voluntary consensus standards in their regulatory activities unless the agency provides Congress, through OMB, with an explanation of why using these standards would be inconsistent with applicable law or otherwise impractical. Voluntary consensus standards are technical standards (e.g., specifications of materials, performance, design, or operation; test methods; sampling procedures; and related management systems practices) that are developed or adopted by voluntary consensus standards bodies. This rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards. G. Taking of Private Property This rule will not cause a taking of private property or otherwise have taking implications under Executive Order 12630 (Governmental Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property Rights). PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13211 (Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use). We have determined that it is not a ‘‘significant energy action’’ under that order because it is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866 and is not likely to have a significant adverse effect on the supply, distribution, or use of energy. E:\FR\FM\28JNR1.SGM 28JNR1 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 125 / Friday, June 28, 2019 / Rules and Regulations M. Environment We have analyzed this rule under Department of Homeland Security Management Directive 023–01 and Environmental Planning COMDTINST 5090.1 (series), which guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321–4370f), and have concluded that this action is one of a category of actions that do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. A final Record of Environmental Consideration supporting this determination is available in the docket where indicated in the ADDRESSES section of this preamble. This final rule involves nonsubstantive technical, organizational, and conforming amendments to existing Coast Guard regulations. Therefore, this rule is categorically excluded under paragraph L54 in Table 3–1 of U.S. Coast Guard Environmental Planning Implementing Procedures 5090.1. Paragraph L54 pertains to regulations which are editorial or procedural.

II. Regulatory History

    We did not publish a notice of proposed rulemaking for this rule. 
Under Title 5 of the United States Code (U.S.C.), Section 553(b)(A), 
the Coast Guard finds that this final rule is exempt from notice and 
public comment rulemaking requirements because these changes involve 
rules of agency organization, procedure, or practice. In addition, the 
Coast Guard finds that notice and comment procedures are unnecessary 
for this final rule under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), as this rule consists of 
only technical and editorial corrections and these changes will have no 
substantive effect on the public. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast 
Guard finds that, for the same reasons, good cause exists for making 
this final rule effective upon publication in the Federal Register.

III. Basis and Purpose

    This final rule, which becomes effective on June 28, 2019, makes 
technical and editorial corrections throughout titles 33 and 46 of the 
Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). These changes are necessary to 
correct errors, change addresses, and make other non-substantive 
amendments that improve the clarity of the CFR. This rule does not 
create or change any substantive requirements.
    This final rule is issued under the authority of 5 U.S.C. 552(a) 
and 553; 14 U.S.C. 102 and 503; 33 U.S.C. 151, 499, 521, 2071, and

0170.1.

IV. Discussion of the Rule

    The Coast Guard periodically issues technical, organizational, and 
conforming amendments to existing regulations in titles 33 and 46 of 
the CFR. These ``technical amendments'' provide the public with more 
accurate and current regulatory information, but do not change the 
effect on the public of any Coast Guard regulations.

Technical Amendments to Title 33 of the CFR

    This rule amends Sec.  1.08-1(a)(11) by replacing an incorrect 
cross-reference to ``33 CFR 88.05(h)'' with the correct citation ``33 
CFR 83.01(g),'' which contains the requirement that certain vessels 
carry a copy of the inland navigation rules. The 2014 ``Changes to the 
Inland Navigation Rules'' (79 FR 37898, July 2, 2014) amended Sec.  
88.05 so that it contains the rules for lights on law enforcement 
vessels. The 2014 ``Changes to Inland Navigation Rules'' also moved the 
``Copy of the Rules'' requirement previously housed in Sec.  88.05 to 
Sec.  83.01(g), which states that operators of self-propelled vessels 
12 meters or more in length must carry on board a copy of the inland 
navigation rules in part 83.
    This rule corrects the authority citation for part 26 and also 
revises Sec.  26.08(a) to reflect the organizational change in office 
name from Assistant Commandant for ``Marine Safety, Security and 
Environmental Protection'' to Assistant Commandant for ``Prevention 
Policy.''
    In Sec.  80.750(b) and (f), this rule removes references to La 
Costa Test Pile North Light and Big Sarasota Pass Light 14, 
respectively, because these lights no longer exist. The Coast Guard 
replaces these references with exact coordinates to clarify the 
demarcation lines for the 72 International Regulations for Preventing 
Collisions at Sea (COLREGS) navigation rules.
    The changes in Sec.  80.753(a) and (d) include edits to the 
descriptions of the landmarks used in the COLREGS demarcation lines. 
These changes will align this section's descriptions of the lines with 
the rest of the section's descriptions by describing each demarcation 
as a line heading from south to north. In addition, the edits to this 
section clarify the points of demarcation by adding descriptive words 
like ``jetty.'' The Coast Guard also replaces a reference to ``Light 
7'' in Sec.  80.753(d) to ``Light 3'' because Light 7 was renamed Light 
3. The final change in Sec.  80.753(d) replaces the demarcation point, 
the Anclote River Cut B Range Rear Light, with the exact coordinates of 
that location on Anclote Key because the Anclote River Cut B Range Rear 
Light no longer exists for our demarcation purposes.
    This rule deletes the demarcation points in Sec.  80.810(c) and (d) 
because a National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration cartographer 
notified the Coast Guard that the ``northernmost extremity'' on Crooked 
Island and Shell Island no longer exist due to water movement over the 
land. The water moved over the landmasses so that the COLREGS waters in 
this location are closed off from the inland waters. The Coast Guard is 
deleting the references to these two demarcation points that no longer 
exist to provide accurate information to the public and to conform the 
regulations to fit the geography of the area as it currently exists.
    The changes in Sec. Sec.  81.3, 81.5(a), 81.9, 89.3, 89.5, and 89.9 
replace all references to the ``Marine Safety Division'' to reflect an 
organizational change to its current office name, which is ``Prevention 
Division.''
    In Sec.  83.24(h), this rule adds ``shapes'' to the inland 
navigation rule for towing vessels to align the regulations with the 72 
COLREGS, which is implemented in this part. This section refers the 
reader to Sec.  83.24(e) and (g) for certain light and shape display 
requirements and both referenced paragraphs include light and shape 
display requirements for towing vessels to indicate the presence of a 
vessel or object. The 72 COLREGS allow exceptions for both lights and 
shapes display requirements when compliance with the rules is 
impossible, and this section implements that exception. Although we 
inadvertently omitted references to the shapes, we have always applied 
these regulations to both lights and shapes.
    In Sec. Sec.  83.26(f)(1), and 83.27(d)(iv)(1)(B) and (2)(A), this 
rule replaces ``all around'' with ``all round'' to match the spelling 
to the 72 COLREGS, which are implemented in these sections.
    In Sec.  83.26(f)(ii)(2)(B), this rule updates an incorrect cross-
reference to the appropriate paragraph. The cross-reference this rule 
updates is for the light signal that fishing vessels must display when 
shooting or hauling their nets, or when their nets come upon an 
obstruction. These lighting requirements are listed in paragraph 
(f)(ii)(1) of this section, instead of paragraph (a).
    This rule amends Sec.  89.27(a) and (b) and the header to Sec.  
89.27 by updating all cross-references to ``Inland Rule 24(i)'' to the 
correct citation, ``Inland Rule 24(j).'' This edit comes as a result of 
the 2017 Technical Amendments final rule (82 FR 35073, 35080, July 28, 
2017) that changed the citation in 33 CFR 83.24 (Inland Rule 24).
    This rule adds subparts A through J to 33 CFR part 100 to organize 
the permanent and temporary special local regulations (SLRs) by their 
Coast Guard district. We are adding subparts with the districts' titles 
to improve the organization and readability of this section. When the 
Coast Guard issues a permanent SLR within District 17 in 33 CFR part 
100, we will add sections to subpart J for District 17 at that time. 
The following table shows the organizational changes:

             Table 1--New CFR Part 100 Subpart Organization
------------------------------------------------------------------------
               CFR subpart                        SLR designation
------------------------------------------------------------------------
A........................................  General.
B........................................  1st district.
C........................................  5th district.
D........................................  7th district.
E........................................  8th district.
F........................................  9th district.
G........................................  11th district.
H........................................  13th district.
I........................................  14th district.
J........................................  17th district.
------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Previously, the SLRs' section number was the mechanism that 
organized the SLRs in part 100 by district number. However, part 100 
did not explicitly call attention to the fact that the section number 
correlated with the Coast Guard district, making it an ineffective 
organization tool for the public to use. In the ``General'' provisions 
subpart, this rule also adds Sec.  100.35(d), which contains a 
description of how 33 CFR part 100 is organized by district.
    This rule corrects the names of the drawbridges in Sec. Sec.  
117.149 and 117.163(b) from 3rd Street and 4th Street drawbridges to 
Third Street and Fourth Street drawbridges.
    In Sec.  117.175(b), we put the word ``counties'' in lowercase to 
fix a capitalization errors.
    Also in Sec.  117.193, we change the words ``highway'' and 
``bicycle'' to lowercase to fix capitalization errors.
    In Sec.  117.523, this rule corrects the name and mile marker for 
the Barter's Island Bridge on the Back River in Maine from ``Maine 
Department of Transportation highway bridge, mile 4.6'' to ``Barter's 
Island Bridge, mile 2.0.''
    This rule assigns the content that was in Sec.  117.622 into Sec.  
117.621. This rule also reassigns content that was in Sec.  117.621 
into Sec.  117.622 and renames the section header of Sec.  117.622 to 
``Weymouth Fore River.'' These revisions restore alphabetical order to

[[Page 30872]]

part 117 after ``Fore River'' was renamed as ``Weymouth Fore River.''
    This rule amends Sec.  117.755 by updating the bridge name from 
``Monmouth Country highway bridge'' to its new name ``Sea Bright 
Bridge.'' In Sec.  117.791(c) this rule updates the name of the ``CSX 
Transportation bridge'' to its new name, ``Livingston Ave (Amtrak) 
Bridge.'' In Sec.  117.791(d) this rule updates the name of the ``state 
highway bridge'' to its new name, ``Troy-Menands Bridge.'' In Sec.  
117.791(e), this rule updates the name of the ``highway bridge'' to its 
new name, ``Troy-Green Bridge.''
    In Sec.  151.1021(b)(1), this rule updates the title of the 
Assistant Commandant for Prevention Policy because the text omitted 
``Policy'' from the command's name.
    This rule revises Sec. Sec.  151.1513 and 151.2036 by providing an 
email address to accommodate email delivery of extension requests for 
ballast water management systems under those sections.
    This rule amends Sec.  151.2005 by removing the definition of 
``International Maritime Organization (IMO) ballast water management 
guidelines'' because it is no longer used in part 151 nor in practice. 
The Coast Guard stopped using the IMO ballast water standards because 
the standards were replaced by the International Convention for the 
Control and Management of Ships' Ballast Water and Sediments on 
September 8, 2017, and the United States is not a party to the 
Convention. In order to avoid confusion and conform with the updated 
standards, we are deleting the IMO ballast water management guidelines 
definition in this part.
    This rule updates a Coast Guard website address in Sec.  151.2005, 
within the definition of Shipboard Technology Evaluation Program 
(STEP), where the public can view the STEP guidance and applications.
    In Sec.  151.2026(b) we added an email address as an alternate way 
for the public to submit requests for determinations to the Marine 
Safety Center.
    In Sec.  151.2065, this rule updates the office names for 
Environmental Standards Division from ``CG-05224'' to ``(CG-OES-3)'' 
and also updates the title of the Assistant Commandant for Prevention 
Policy (CG-5P) from its previous title, ``Assistant Commandant for 
Maritime Safety, Security, and Stewardship (CG-5)'' to conform with 
organizational name changes.
    This rule revises the definition sections in both Sec. Sec.  
154.1020 and 155.1020 by replacing the definition for ``Dispersant 
Mission Planner 2 or (DMP2)'' with the definition for ``Estimated 
Dispersant System Potential Calculator (EDSP).'' The Estimated 
Dispersant System Potential Calculator was developed as revision 1 of 
the DMP2 because the DMP2 programming environment was outdated and was 
no longer supported on any system. DMP2 is no longer available for use, 
and the EDSP is the current program used by the industry. The basic 
algorithms used in the DMP2 are the same in the EDSP, so there is no 
change in the public's expectations or requirements. We are updating 
these definition sections to conform to the technology currently used 
by industry and accepted by the Coast Guard. For the same reasons, this 
rule replaces all references to ``Dispersant Mission Planner 2'' or 
``DMP2'' with ``Estimated Dispersant System Potential Calculator'' and 
``EDSP'' in Sec.  154.1045(i)(2)(ii); Appendix C to part 154, 
paragraphs 8.2.1.2 and 8.2.3(i); Sec.  155.1050; and Appendix B to part 
155, paragraphs 8.2.1.2 and 8.2.3(i).
    In Sec.  156.210(b), this rule replaces the out-of-date office 
contact ``CG-5'' with ``CG-ENG'' because CG-ENG is the correct office 
for the public to submit requests to use lighter hazardous materials 
other than oil.
    In Sec.  161.2, titled ``Definitions'', this rule inserts the 
definitions for ``Center'' and ``Published'' that were previously 
located in a second separate definitions section in Sec.  161.17. We 
are moving these two definitions into Sec.  161.2 so that all the 
definitions for this part can be found in the same place. The 
definitions are unchanged. The Coast Guard also corrects a 
capitalization error in Sec.  161.2.
    In Sec. Sec.  161.2, 161.12, Note 6 to Table 1 to Sec.  161.12(c), 
Table 161.70(d), and Table 161.70(f), the Coast Guard is replacing all 
references to ``sector'' with ``zone'' to avoid confusion with sector 
commands and conform with the current practice to call these areas 
``zones''. In addition, in Table 1 to Sec.  161.12, this rule replaces 
the reference to the ``Strait of Juan de Fuca'' with ``Salish Sea,'' 
which is the new name for that body of water.
    In Sec.  161.4, this rule provides a web address to access the 
Vessel Traffic Services User Manual.
    In Sec.  161.5(b) we remove the text ``Vessel Traffic Center'' and 
leave only the acronym, ``VTC'' because we moved the definition and 
initial introduction to the acronym to Sec.  161.2, which precedes this 
reference.
    This rule corrects a typographical error in line 12 of Table 1 to 
Sec.  161.12(c) by removing the apostrophe in ``St. Mary's.'' The name 
of the river, St. Marys River, has been without a possessive apostrophe 
since 1982.
    The Coast Guard deletes Sec.  161.17 and moves the section's 
definitions for ``Center'' and ``Published'' to Sec.  161.2 where all 
the other definitions applicable to this part are listed.
    The Coast Guard is correcting an erroneous edit made to Sec.  
161.55(c)(3) by a technical and conforming amendment final rule in 2014 
(79 FR 38421). The 2014 technical amendment final rule unintentionally 
changed the type of vessel exempted from the regulations from vessels 
of less than 100 meters to vessels greater than 100 meters in length, 
while saying the ``changes are editorial and do not alter the VTS 
Special Area Operating Requirements prescribed in 33 CFR 161.55(c)'' 
(79 FR 38424). This provision's original purpose was, and is, to exempt 
smaller vessels from the regulations intended to help the larger 
commercial vessel industry safely navigate the narrow and tricky waters 
of Puget Sound. It was never the Coast Guard's intent to exempt larger 
vessels from the precautions put in place for their benefit. Therefore, 
the Coast Guard is revising the text in Sec.  161.55(c)(3) from 
exempting vessels greater than 100 meters in length to how it was 
written before the 2014 Technical Amendment final rule, in order to 
exempt only vessels of less than 100 meters from certain requirements 
in that part. The inaccurately edited rule has not been enforced 
according to how it was rewritten. Instead, the Coast Guard 
acknowledged the mistake and continued its exemptions for vessels less 
than 100 meters only. This clarifying technical amendment will not 
result in a change in expectations or obligations based on how Sec.  
161.55(c)(3) has always been enforced.
    In Sec.  164.72(b)(2)(ii)(C), the text ``the ACOE or'' is removed 
as a source for river current tables because the United States Army 
Corps of Engineers (ACOE) no longer issues river current tables. The 
alternate river current issuing authority already listed in this 
section is ``a river authority.'' We are removing the ACOE as a river 
authority to reduce confusion. The requirements of the section are 
unchanged. This rule also corrects a punctuation error in Sec.  
164.72(b)(2)(ii)(C).

Technical Amendments to Title 46 of the CFR

    In Sec.  2.01-7, Table 2.01-7(a), under the fourth column covering 
``Vessels inspected and certificated under Subchapter I--Cargo and 
Miscellaneous Vessels,'' on line (2) entitled ``Motor, seagoing motor 
vessels >=300 gross tons'',

[[Page 30873]]

the Coast Guard is removing a comma that was erroneously added by a 
technical amendment so that it is clearer that these regulations apply 
to the regulated vessels even when they are not engaged in trade. This 
rule removes the second comma in the following sentence in Table 2.01-
7(a): ``All vessels, including recreational vessels, not engaged in 
trade.'' In 2009, we issued a rule that was intended to only make non-
substantive changes related to the definition of ``ferry'' in 46 CFR, 
but in the process, that technical and conforming amendment rule (74 FR 
63617, December 4, 2009) inserted an extra comma in the sentence quoted 
above. The comma unintentionally altered the meaning of the sentence, 
so that in both tables instead of covering all vessels ``including 
recreational vessels not engaged in trade,'' the sentence with two 
commas now may be read to include a vessel only if it was not engaged 
in trade--regardless of the nature of the vessel, recreational or 
commercial. This erroneous comma introduced by the 2009 technical 
amendment went unnoticed again in 2013, when we included the comma in 
Table 2.01-7(a) in a final rule titled ``Seagoing Barges'' (78 FR 
53285, August 29, 2013). Neither the 2009 technical amendment nor the 
2013 ``Seagoing Barges'' final rule mentioned any intention of 
substantively changing column 4 of Table 2.01.7(a) to cover vessels 
only when they were engaged in trade, nor did the Coast Guard ever 
enforce it that way.
    This rule updates the delivery mailing addresses for payment by 
check in Sec.  2.10-20(d)(1)(ii) through (iii) and 2.10-20(d)(2)(ii) 
through (iii).
    In Sec.  10.203(a), this rule deletes paragraph (a), and 
redesignates paragraphs (b) through (d) as (a) through (c). Section 
10.203(a) stated that until April 15, 2014, mariners with a merchant 
mariner document or similar license with a restriction on it did not 
have to carry a merchant mariner credential (MMC), as required by this 
chapter. Since April 15, 2014 has passed, all mariners required to hold 
a license or endorsement must hold an MMC. As a result, the Coast Guard 
is deleting the obsolete grandfathering clause in Sec.  10.203(a) to 
conform to the current regulations and to avoid confusion.
    In Sec.  10.209(d), this rule adds a cross-reference that was 
inadvertently left out of the initial rulemaking. Section 10.209(d) 
describes the methods of submitting an MMC application and points the 
public to various sections that describe a complete MMC application. 
This rule adds Sec.  10.223 to the list of sections that describe a 
complete MMC package. Section 10.223 contains the requirements for an 
application to modify or remove limitations on MMC endorsements, such 
as tonnage limitations or geographical route restrictions. We are 
adding this section to the list of references describing complete 
applications to be comprehensive in pointing to all types of complete 
applications, which was the intent of this section. In the supplemental 
notice of proposed rulemaking titled ``Consolidation of Merchant 
Mariner Qualification Credentials'' (72 FR 3605, January 25, 2007), we 
describe why we did not include the reference originally in Sec.  
10.209(d). For that section, we decided to separate the original 
application requirements from the renewal requirements because ``[w]hen 
we attempted to list all of the requirements for originals that 
renewals, duplicates and/or raises in grade are exempted from, we found 
the maze of cross-references to be needlessly confusing'' (72 FR 3631, 
January 25, 2007). We unintentionally omitted the reference to Sec.  
10.223 for modifying the scope or limitations and adding the reference 
to Sec.  10.209(d) will not change the requirements for modifying or 
removing limitations or the scope of a MMC.
    This rule amends Sec.  10.221(b) by removing the reference dates, 
``Beginning April 15, 2009,'' and ``Until April 15, 2009, proof of 
citizenship or alien status must be submitted by appearing at a 
Regional Exam Center'' because these provisions are no longer 
applicable after the referenced date. What remains in Sec.  10.221(b) 
after this amendment is the longstanding requirement that proof of 
citizenship must be submitted to the Transportation Security 
Administration with the applicant's Transportation Worker 
Identification Credential application in accordance with 49 CFR 
1572.17(a)(11). The requirements of this section remain unchanged by 
this amendment.
    In Sec.  10.229(b), this rule deletes the second and third 
sentences because they reference what the Coast Guard will issue for 
duplicate credentials up until April 15, 2014. Because the provision is 
no longer applicable after the referenced date, the Coast Guard is 
removing this obsolete provision.
    In Sec. Sec.  10.232(e)(1), 10.232(e)(2)(i), 11.211(c)(2), 
11.301(b)(1), 11.430(e), and 11.465(a), this rule removes all 
references in the text to ``upgrade,'' ``raise-of-grade,'' or ``raise 
in grade'' and replaces them with the text ``raise of grade'' to 
standardize the terminology through these sections and eliminate any 
ambiguity that could result from having three references with an 
identical meaning. In Table 1 to Sec.  10.239, the Coast Guard is 
replacing all references to ``Sec.  12.601(c)'' with ``Sec.  
12.602(a)'' within the ``First aid and CPR'' column to revise an 
incorrect cross-reference. Section 12.602(a) contains the standards of 
competence for basic training, including first aid training, that STCW 
endorsement applicants must meet for the listed STCW endorsements in 
Table 1 to Sec.  10.239.
    This rule removes from title 46 the grandfathering provisions in 
Sec.  10.301(g)(1), (2), (3), and (5) because the delayed 
implementation date or final date for using these provisions as 
alternate means of compliance expired on January 1, 2017. Section 
10.301(g)(1) stated that all candidates who apply for a MMC with 
seagoing service or training performed on or after March 24, 2014 or 
who apply for the MMC after January 1, 2017 have to comply with the 
requirements of this section. Since the date for when the section 
became applicable to all applicants passed on January 1, 2017, the 
grandfathering provision has not been available. All applicants must 
meet the requirements of this section and the grandfathering provision 
is obsolete because any new applicant will not be able to invoke the 
provision. Enough time has passed that the Coast Guard believes that 
the provision is no longer applicable to any mariner or Coast Guard-
approved courses, programs, or training. To avoid misunderstanding on 
the requirements of this section, we are removing these obsolete 
provisions from the regulations.
    In Sec.  10.305(a)(2), the Coast Guard is removing the qualifier 
for ``After January 1, 2017'' because the referenced date has passed 
and all applicants for STCW endorsements under this part should be in 
compliance with this section. The grandfathering deadline is no longer 
relevant to this part since all are required to meet the vision 
requirements outlined in this section. Additional changes made by this 
rule to Sec.  10.305(a)(2) include replacing ``meets'' with 
``previously met'' because it is unlikely that a mariner meets the 
vision requirements and suffers vision loss at the same time. The Coast 
Guard is changing the language to past tense to undo this anomaly and 
avoid confusion. There is no change in the vision requirements in Sec.  
10.305(a)(2) as a result of this technical amendment.
    Moreover, in Sec.  10.305(c) this rule replaces an outdated 
reference to the ``MMC'' with ``medical certificate'' to conform with 
the National Maritime Center's actual practice to place the

[[Page 30874]]

vision waiver limitation on the medical certificate, rather than the 
MMC. The misalignment between the inaccurate regulation and actual 
practice caused confusion for the affected population, so we are 
conforming the text to correctly state that the vision waiver 
limitation should be placed on the medical certificate.
    This rule removes from title 46 the grandfathering provision in 
Sec.  10.410(f) because the delayed implementation date or final date 
for using them as means for alternate compliance expired on January 1, 
2017. Section 10.410(f) stated that all Coast Guard-approved STCW 
endorsement courses, programs, and training had to meet the 
requirements of part 10 by January 1, 2017. This reference date has 
passed and all courses must be in compliance. These provisions are no 
longer applicable to any mariner or Coast Guard-approved courses, 
programs, or training. To avoid misunderstandings on the requirements 
of this section, we are removing these obsolete provisions from the 
regulations.
    In Sec.  10.402(b), this rule updates the subject office name from 
``Office of Vessel Activities (CG-CVC)'' to ``Office of Merchant 
Mariner Credentialing'' to reflect organizational changes. Within this 
same section, this rule edits the final sentence to say ``and include 
the following:'' to start the list of items that must be included in a 
curriculum package.
    This rule corrects a cross-reference in Sec.  11.201(b) by 
replacing Sec.  11.467(i) with 11.467(h) as the exception to the 
requirement that mariners must be proficient in the English language. 
Section 11.467(i) does not exist. The correct paragraph (h) states that 
applicants for operator of uninspected passenger vessels of less than 
100 GRT who speak Spanish, but not English, may operate in the vicinity 
of Puerto Rico.
    This rule removes the grandfathering provisions from Sec.  
11.301(g)(1) through (5) because the established date has already 
passed and all renewals and new candidates for mariner credentials must 
now meet the requirements of part 11. Paragraphs (g)(1) through (5) in 
Sec.  11.301 permitted the Coast Guard to issue STCW endorsements that 
met the older requirements of this part before it was amended on March 
24, 2014, until January 1, 2017. Because January 1, 2017, has passed, 
the Coast Guard can no longer issue the certifications under previous 
versions of the rules. The grandfathering provisions in Sec.  
11.301(g)(1) exempted candidates who started training and sea service 
before March 24, 2014 from certain requirements in part 11 until 
January 1, 2017. Paragraph (g)(1) explicitly states that all mariner 
applications for credentials under part 11 must comply with the 
requirements of this part after January 1, 2017. Also, this final rule 
removes the second grandfathering provision in Sec.  11.301(g)(2) that 
exempted seafarers holding an STCW endorsement prior to March 24, 2014, 
from having to complete any additional training until January 1, 2017. 
Because the referenced date has passed, mariners can no longer use this 
training exemption. The removal of these grandfathering provisions will 
have no effect on any mariner because, according to the text, all 
mariners applying for, renewing, or upgrading credentials after January 
1, 2017 must comply with the current requirements of part 11.
    In Sec. Sec.  11.305, 11.307, 11.311, and 11.313, this rule 
replaces all references to ``shiphandling'' with ``ship handling'' to 
conform to how it is spelled in other regulations and international 
standards.
    In Table 1 to Sec.  11.309(e), this rule replaces the reference to 
``A-II/2'' with ``A-II/1'' in the ``Competence'' column heading to 
correct the location of the standards of competency. Section 11.309 
contains the requirements for an STCW endorsement as an Officer in 
charge of navigational watch on vessels of 500 gross tonnage (GT) or 
more. The updated STCW table reference, A-II/1, also contains the 
requirements for this rating.
    In Table 1 to Sec.  11.311(d), this rule replaces the reference to 
``A-II/3'' with ``A-II/2'' in the ``Competence'' column heading to 
correct the location of the standards of competency. Section 11.311 
contains the requirements for an STCW endorsement as a master of 
vessels of 500 GT or more and less than 3,000 GT. The updated STCW 
table reference, A-II/2, also contains the requirements for this 
rating.
    In Sec.  11.315(c) and Table 1 to Sec.  11.315(d), this rule 
replaces the references to STCW Table ``A-II/3'' with ``A-II/2'' to 
correctly reference the standards of competency for an STCW endorsement 
as a master of vessels of less than 500 GT in Sec.  11.315. The updated 
STCW Table reference, A-II/2, also contains the requirements for this 
rating.
    In Sec.  11.319(c) and Table 1 to Sec.  11.319(d), this rule 
replaces both STCW table citations ``A-II/3'' with the correct Table 
``A-II/1.'' Section 11.319 contains the requirements for an endorsement 
as an officer in charge of a navigational watch of vessels of less than 
500 GT operational level. In Sec.  11.319(a), it states that an 
``officer in charge of a navigational watch serving on a seagoing ship 
of less than 500 GT not engaged on near-coastal voyages shall hold a 
certificate of competency for ships of 500 GT or more.'' The previous 
STCW table reference to A-II/3 contains the requirements for officers 
in charge of navigational watch and for masters on ships of less than 
500 GT limited to near-coastal voyages. Since the regulations in Sec.  
11.319 are not limited to near coastal voyages, STCW Table A-II/1, 
which is titled ``Specification of minimum standard of competence for 
officers in charge of a navigational watch on ships of 500 GT or 
more,'' contains the correct and intended competencies for this 
requirement. This correction conforms the section to the regulations as 
written and consistently interpreted without affecting the mariner's 
obligations under this section.
    Also within Sec.  11.319, this rule fixes two incorrect cross-
references in footnotes 2 and 3 to Table 1 to Sec.  11.319(d) to their 
correct paragraphs within this section. These footnotes reiterate that 
Table 1 to Sec.  11.319(d) is illustrative and not all-inclusive, but 
that the mariner must complete the items in the referenced paragraphs 
of this section as well. There is no change in the obligations of the 
public by correcting these cross-references.
    In the ``Competence'' column heading of Table 1 to Sec.  11.331(e), 
this rule corrects a reference to the STCW table. This section, Sec.  
11.331, is for chief engineer officer competence on ships powered by 
main propulsion machinery of less than 3,000 kW. The incorrect 
reference to STCW Table A-III/2 contains the competencies for chief 
engineer officers on ships powered by main propulsion machinery of 
3,000 kW propulsion power or more. The correct STCW table reference is 
A-III/3, which contains the minimum competencies to qualify as a chief 
engineer officer on ships powered by main propulsion machinery of less 
than 3,000 kW. This change aligns the table with the references in the 
regulatory text.
    For similar reasons, this rule also corrects the ``Competence'' 
column heading of Table 1 to Sec.  11.333(d), to the correct STCW 
table. Section 11.333 is for second engineer officer competence on 
ships powered by main propulsion machinery of less than 3,000 kW. The 
incorrect reference to STCW Table A-III/2 contains the competencies for 
chief and second engineer officers on ships powered by main propulsion 
machinery of 3,000 kW propulsion power or more. The correct STCW table 
reference is A-III/3, which contains the minimum competencies to 
qualify as a second

[[Page 30875]]

engineer officer on ships powered by main propulsion machinery of less 
than 3,000 kW. This change aligns the table with the STCW references in 
the regulatory text.
    This rule revises Sec.  11.464(g)(1) by replacing an erroneous 
cross-reference to paragraph (f) with a corrected cross-reference to 
paragraph (e) as the source of the exception to having a minimum of 30 
days of training and observation on towing vessels. Paragraph (f) of 
this section contains the requirement that companies maintain evidence 
that the vessel operator is properly qualified, which is not relevant 
to the 30 days of training minimum mentioned in paragraph(g)(1). 
Paragraph (e) in Sec.  11.464 contains the requirement that mariners 
applying for the Master of towing vessels on the Western Rivers 
endorsement must possess a minimum 90 days of observation and training, 
instead of the 30 day minimum in paragraph in (g)(1). In the 
supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking (SNPRM) preceding the final 
rule that implemented this section, this section (previously Sec.  
11.464(i)(1)) correctly cross referenced the western river exception 
that is currently in paragraph (e) (76 FR 45908, 46010, Aug. 1, 2011). 
However, the Coast Guard's 2013 final rule that implemented these 
sections mentions that three paragraphs in Sec.  11.464 of the SNPRM's 
proposed text were left out of the final rule for more consideration 
and the cross-reference was not updated accordingly (78 FR 77796, 77829 
and 77937, Dec. 24, 2013).
    This rule corrects the reference in Sec.  11.480(b)(2) to ``Gulf 
Intercoastal waterways (GIWW)'' to its accurate reference, ``Gulf 
Intracoastal waterways (GIWW).''
    In Sec.  11.603 titled, ``Requirements for radio officers' 
endorsements,'' this rule updates the name of licenses issued by the 
Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for radio telegraph operator 
licenses because on May 20, 2013, the FCC consolidated the First and 
Second class Radiotelegraph Operator Certificates into a one single 
license class called the Radiotelegraph Operator License (T). To 
conform to the updated FCC license structure, this rule removes the 
references to ``first or second class,'' so that the section reflects 
the current name of the same licenses. This rule adds a ``(T)'' to the 
end of the license name to reflect the FCC's abbreviation for the 
license name.
    This rule corrects a cross-reference to the definition of ``near-
coastal voyage'' in Sec.  11.1105(d) from Sec.  11.301(h) to Sec.  
10.107. Section 11.301(h) contains regulations for mariners holding 
both a STCW and national endorsements on small vessels in domestic, 
near-coastal voyages, but does not contain a definition of near coastal 
voyages. This technical amendment changes the citation to ``Sec.  
10.107,'' the definition section for subchapter B, which does contain 
the definition of ``near-coastal voyage.''
    This rule amends Sec.  12.603 by removing paragraph (b), which 
refers to a provision that was applicable only until January 1, 2017. 
Because the referenced deadline has passed and this provision is no 
longer applicable to any qualifications for the STCW endorsement as 
able seafarer-deck, we are removing it to avoid confusion as to its 
applicability. To account for the deletion of Sec.  12.603(b), this 
rule also renumbers the subsections and corrects a cross-reference. In 
the title of Table 1 to Sec.  12.603(e), we update the cross-reference 
to Sec.  12.603(d) to reflect the renumbering.
    This rule removes the grandfathering clauses for STCW rating 
endorsements located in Sec.  12.603(c)(1) through (4) because all four 
of the provisions have not been applicable to any merchant mariner 
since January 1, 2017, according to the regulatory text and practice. 
This rule also removes Sec.  12.601(c)(1), which states that after 
January 1, 2017 the merchant mariner applicant must meet the provisions 
of part 12. Removing these provisions will have no effect on any 
mariner because all mariners applying for, renewing, or upgrading 
credentials after January 1, 2017 must comply with the current 
requirements in part 12. In order to conform to the requirements part 
12 of title 46 and to improve the clarity of the regulations, the Coast 
Guard is removing the out-of-date grandfathering provisions listed in 
these sections.
    Similarly in Sec.  12.607, this rule deletes paragraph (b), which 
refers to a provision that was applicable only until January 1, 2017. 
Because the referenced deadline has passed and this provision is no 
longer applicable to any qualifications for the STCW endorsement for 
able seafarer-engine, we are removing it to avoid confusion as to its 
applicability. To account for the deletion of Sec.  12.607(b), this 
rule also renumbers the subsections and corrects a cross-reference. In 
the title of Table 1 to Sec.  12.607(e) we update the cross-reference 
to Sec.  12.607(d) to reflect the renumbering.
    In Sec.  12.613(a)(3), the text ``Sec.  12.601(c)'' is replaced 
with the text ``Sec.  12.602'' to correct a longstanding error in the 
cross-reference. Section 12.601(c) does not address basic training 
requirements, which is the subject of Sec.  12.613(a)(3). Section 
12.602 addresses the standard of competence for basic training.
    This rule updates an incorrect cross-reference to subpart J in 
Sec.  15.530(b)(4)(iv) to subpart I, because the training for non-
resident alien crewmembers is contained in subpart I of the referenced 
subchapter.
    In paragraphs (c)(1), (d)(1), and (e)(1) of Sec.  15.860, this rule 
corrects the spelling of ``and'' and ``or.''
    Also in Sec.  15.860, this rule adds a period to the end of each of 
the following paragraphs: (b)(3), (c)(2), (d)(2), (e)(2), (f)(1), 
(f)(2), (f)(3), (f)(4), (g), and (h)(1).
    In both Sec.  15.860(f) and (h), this rule adds colons to the end 
of the paragraph to correct missing punctuation.
    In Sec.  15.1101(a)(2), this rule adds the missing term ``near 
coastal'' between ``domestic'' and ``voyages'' to correct an omission 
of language that was inadvertently left out of this subparagraph. 
Adding the term aligns the text with the terminology used in the 
international standards and other regulations within this subchapter, 
which refer to ``domestic, near-coastal voyages.'' There will not be 
any change in the obligations of the public by conforming the language 
to the international standards and regulations.
    In the periodic drug testing requirements for Sec.  16.220(a), this 
rule replaces an incorrect cross-reference to Sec.  10.227(e) with a 
corrected cross-reference to Sec.  10.227(g). Paragraph (g) is the 
proper reference here because it contains the provisions for those who 
are unwilling or unable to pass drug tests for the purpose of renewing 
a credential. Section 10.227(e) contains the unrelated professional 
requirements for renewing a credential.
    This rule amends the authority citation for part 26 by removing a 
repealed Title 46 U.S.C. statutory authority and replacing it with the 
correct Title 46 statutory authorities for regulating uninspected 
passenger vessels.
    In Sec.  28.210(b)(1)(ii), this rule corrects an incorrect cross-
reference to another section within this chapter for the courses 
approved by the Coast Guard for first aid equipment and training.
    In Sec. Sec.  162.060-14(b) and 162.060-42(a)(3), this rule adds 
the email addresses for the Marine Safety Center as an alternate method 
of contact.

V. Regulatory Analyses

    We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and 
Executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses 
based on these statutes or Executive orders.

[[Page 30876]]

A. Regulatory Planning and Review

    Executive Orders 12866 (Regulatory Planning and Review) and 13563 
(Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review) direct agencies to assess 
the costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, if 
regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize 
net benefits (including potential economic, environmental, public 
health and safety effects, distributive impacts, and equity). Executive 
Order 13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and 
benefits, of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting 
flexibility. Executive Order 13771 (Reducing Regulation and Controlling 
Regulatory Costs) directs agencies to reduce regulation and control 
regulatory costs and provides that ``for every one new regulation 
issued, at least two prior regulations be identified for elimination, 
and that the cost of planned regulations be prudently managed and 
controlled through a budgeting process.''
    The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has not designated this 
rule a significant regulatory action under section 3(f) of Executive 
Order 12866. Accordingly, OMB has not reviewed it. Because this rule is 
not a significant regulatory action, this rule is exempt from the 
requirements of Executive Order 13771. See the OMB Memorandum titled 
``Guidance Implementing Executive Order 13771, titled `Reducing 
Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs' '' (April 5, 2017). This 
rule involves non-substantive changes and internal agency practices and 
procedures; it will not impose any additional costs on the public. The 
benefit of the non-substantive changes is increased clarity of 
regulations.

B. Small Entities

    Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601-612, we have 
considered whether this rule would have a significant economic impact 
on a substantial number of small entities. The term ``small entities'' 
comprises small businesses, not-for-profit organizations that are 
independently owned and operated and are not dominant in their fields, 
and governmental jurisdictions with populations of less than 50,000.
    This rule is not preceded by a notice of proposed rulemaking. 
Therefore, it is exempt from the requirements of the Regulatory 
Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601-612). The Regulatory Flexibility Act does 
not apply when notice and comment rulemaking is not required. This rule 
consists of technical, organizational, and conforming amendments and 
does not have any substantive effect on the regulated industry or small 
businesses. Therefore, the Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) 
that this rule will not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities.

C. Assistance for Small Entities

    Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement 
Fairness Act of 1996, Public Law 104-121, we offer to assist small 
entities in understanding this rule so that they can better evaluate 
its effects on them and participate in the rulemaking. The Coast Guard 
will not retaliate against small entities that question or complain 
about this rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard.

D. Collection of Information

    This rule calls for no new collection of information under the 
Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 44 U.S.C. 3501-3520.

E. Federalism

    A rule has implications for federalism under Executive Order 13132 
(Federalism) if it has a substantial direct effect on States, on the 
relationship between the national government and the States, or on the 
distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of 
government. We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13132 and 
have determined that it is consistent with the fundamental federalism 
principles and preemption requirements described in Executive Order 
13132.

F. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act

    The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995, 2 U.S.C. 1531-1538, 
requires Federal agencies to assess the effects of their discretionary 
regulatory actions. In particular, the Act addresses actions that may 
result in the expenditure by a State, local, or tribal government, in 
the aggregate, or by the private sector of $100,000,000 (adjusted for 
inflation) or more in any one year. Although this rule will not result 
in such expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere 
in this preamble.

G. Taking of Private Property

    This rule will not cause a taking of private property or otherwise 
have taking implications under Executive Order 12630 (Governmental 
Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property 
Rights).

H. Civil Justice Reform

    This rule meets applicable standards in sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) 
of Executive Order 12988 (Civil Justice Reform) to minimize litigation, 
eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden.

I. Protection of Children

    We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13045 (Protection 
of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks). This 
rule is not an economically significant rule and would not create an 
environmental risk to health or risk to safety that might 
disproportionately affect children.

J. Indian Tribal Governments

    This rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 
13175 (Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments), 
because it would not have a substantial direct effect on one or more 
Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and 
Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities 
between the Federal Government and Indian tribes.

K. Energy Effects

    We have analyzed this rule under Executive Order 13211 (Actions 
Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, 
Distribution, or Use). We have determined that it is not a 
``significant energy action'' under that order because it is not a 
``significant regulatory action'' under Executive Order 12866 and is 
not likely to have a significant adverse effect on the supply, 
distribution, or use of energy.

L. Technical Standards

    The National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act, codified as a 
note to 15 U.S.C. 272, directs agencies to use voluntary consensus 
standards in their regulatory activities unless the agency provides 
Congress, through OMB, with an explanation of why using these standards 
would be inconsistent with applicable law or otherwise impractical. 
Voluntary consensus standards are technical standards (e.g., 
specifications of materials, performance, design, or operation; test 
methods; sampling procedures; and related management systems practices) 
that are developed or adopted by voluntary consensus standards bodies.
    This rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not 
consider the use of voluntary consensus standards.

[[Page 30877]]

M. Environment

    We have analyzed this rule under Department of Homeland Security 
Management Directive 023-01 and Environmental Planning COMDTINST 5090.1 
(series), which guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National 
Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321-4370f), and have 
concluded that this action is one of a category of actions that do not 
individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human 
environment. A final Record of Environmental Consideration supporting 
this determination is available in the docket where indicated in the 
ADDRESSES section of this preamble. This final rule involves non-
substantive technical, organizational, and conforming amendments to 
existing Coast Guard regulations. Therefore, this rule is categorically 
excluded under paragraph L54 in Table 3-1 of U.S. Coast Guard 
Environmental Planning Implementing Procedures 5090.1. Paragraph L54 
pertains to regulations which are editorial or procedural.
