Regulations to Amend the Civil Procedures
Document Number: 2010-5988
Type: Proposed Rule

Agency: Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
This rule amends the procedures governing NOAA's administrative proceedings for the assessment of civil penalties; suspension, revocation, modification, or denial of permits; issuance and use of written warnings; and release or forfeiture of seized property.

This revision eliminates any presumption in favor of the civil penalty or permit sanction assessed by NOAA. The other change corrects a clerical error in a citation to rules pertaining to protective orders issued by Administrative Law Judges.
