Date: 2013-11-21
Agency: Department of Homeland Security

TWIC Not Evidence of Resident Alien Status
Document Number: 2013-27569
Type: Rule
Date: 2013-11-19
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard issues this final rule to remove from its regulations on Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) activities a reference to the Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) and a related TWIC definition and recordkeeping reference because they are inconsistent with a requirement in the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act. These regulations deal with the employment of personnel on the OCS to U.S. citizens or resident aliens. The TWIC reference incorrectly provides that a TWIC alone may be accepted by an employer as sufficient evidence of the TWIC holder's status as a U.S. resident alien, as that term is defined. This rule clarifies the regulations.

Cargo Securing Manuals
Document Number: 2013-26886
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-11-15
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard proposes requiring cargo securing manuals (CSMs) on vessels of 500 gross tons or more traveling on international voyages and carrying cargo that is other than solid or liquid bulk cargo. The proposed regulations would authorize recognized classification societies or other approval authorities to review and approve CSMs on behalf of the Coast Guard. They would also prescribe when and how the loss or jettisoning of cargo at sea must be reported. The proposed regulations would help fulfill U.S. treaty obligations and could help prevent or mitigate the consequences of vessel cargo loss. This rulemaking promotes the Coast Guard's maritime safety and stewardship missions.
