Mariner Licensing and Documentation Program Restructuring and Centralization; Correction
The Coast Guard is correcting a technical amendment that appeared in the Federal Register on August 21, 2006. That technical amendment authorized the Commanding Officer of the National Maritime Center (NMC) to perform certain mariner credentialing functions in addition to Officers in Charge, Marine Inspection, who currently perform those functions. At the end of a transitional period, most credentialing functions will be consolidated at a centralized location. The technical amendment also made technical changes to the mariner credentialing appellate process.
