Currently, the Coast Guard, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency are providing marine safety information in an updated electronic format, some of which is now graphical and geographically selectable.

Furthermore, the Coast Guard recognizes that the maritime industry and mariners in general have made substantial investments to ensure vessels maintain internet connectivity, even while underway.

Discussion

    Navigation publications have always been a principal source of 
voyage planning information. Mariners researched books of tide tables, 
the United States Coast Pilot, local notices to mariners, and other 
information sources to glean relevant information for a particular 
transit. Although such publications have historically been required to 
be kept on board a vessel, the Coast Guard has formally recognized that 
a mariner engaged in voyage planning might not need an entire 
publication at all times.\1\ Since 2010, the Coast Guard has allowed 
U.S. vessels to carry certain navigation publications electronically to 
meet U.S. domestic regulations and Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) 
certificate requirements. This is an acceptance of common industry 
practice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ 33 CFR 164.33 and 164.72 and 46 CFR 26.03-4, 28.225, 78.05-
5, 97.05-5, 109.565, 121.420, 130.330, 140.705, 184.420, and 196.05-
5 allow for an ``applicable currently corrected extract.''
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In response to recommendations from the Navigation Safety Advisory 
Council and the public, the Coast Guard is updating its policy on 
electronic carriage of the Inland Navigation Rules and electronic 
publications in general. Currently, the Coast Guard, the National 
Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the National Geospatial-
Intelligence Agency are providing marine safety information in an 
updated electronic format, some of which is now graphical and 
geographically selectable. Electronic devices (both hardware and 
software) have improved such that a mariner can efficiently access 
navigation publications when needed.
    Furthermore, the Coast Guard recognizes that the maritime industry 
and mariners in general have made substantial investments to ensure 
vessels maintain internet connectivity, even while underway. Because 
mariners use navigation publications primarily for voyage planning 
purposes, the Coast Guard sees no safety barriers preventing vessels 
from accessing required navigation information via the internet on an 
as-needed basis, versus keeping a publication or extract onboard. To 
encourage the use of electronic voyage planning products, the Coast 
Guard is allowing vessels to meet the publication requirements via 
internet access.
    Therefore, Navigation and Vessel Inspection Circular (NVIC) 01-16 
Change 1 is revised to allow publications required by 33 Code of 
Federal Regulations (CFR) parts 83, 161, and 164 and various parts of 
Title 46 CFR and SOLAS Chapter V regulation 27 to be accessed via web 
services. If a mariner uses this NVIC for a publication that must be 
available as a ``ready reference'', as cited in 33 CFR parts 83 and 
161, the publication must be displayable within 2 minutes.
    The Coast Guard has prepared a Deregulatory Savings Analysis for 
NVIC 01-16 Change 2 that identifies and examines the potential costs 
and cost savings associated with implementing the new equivalency 
determination for carriage. This Deregulatory Savings Analysis is 
available in the docket. We request your comments on any concerns that 
you may have related to these policy changes or the economic analysis 
thereof.
    NVIC 01-16 is not a substitute for applicable legal requirements, 
nor is it itself a rule.
    This Notice is published under the authority of 5 U.S.C. 552.
