Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard announces the reopening of the comment period to receive comments on the notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) entitled ``Regulated Navigation Areas; Bars Along the Coasts of Oregon and Washington'' that was published in the Federal Register on February 12, 2009. As stated in the NPRM, the Coast Guard proposes to establish Regulated Navigation Areas (RNA) covering specific bars along the coasts of Oregon and Washington that will include procedures for restricting and/or closing those bars as well as additional safety requirements for recreational and small commercial vessels operating in the RNAs. The RNAs are necessary to help ensure the safety of the persons and vessels operating in those hazardous bar areas. The RNAs will do so by establishing clear procedures for restricting and/or closing the bars and mandating additional safety requirements for recreational and small commercial vessels operating in the RNAs when certain conditions exist.

International Air Pollution Prevention (IAPP) Certificates
Document Number: E9-10749
Type: Rule
Date: 2009-05-08
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
By this direct final rule, the Coast Guard amends its vessel inspection regulations to add the International Air Pollution Prevention (IAPP) certificate to the list of certificates a recognized classification society may be authorized to issue on behalf of the United States. This action is being taken because the United States recently deposited an instrument of ratification with the International Maritime Organization for Annex VI of the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution by Ships, 1973 as modified by the Protocol of 1978 (MARPOL 73/78). As a result, Annex VI entered into force for the United States on January 8, 2009. This rulemaking will offer a more efficient means for U.S. ships to obtain an IAPP certificate.
