Document Number: 2021-27571
Type: Rule
Date: 2021-12-28
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection
This rule amends the regulations in title 8 and title 19 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) regarding the submission of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Form I-418, Passenger ListCrew List (Form I-418) in paper form. Currently, the master or agent of every commercial vessel arriving in the United States, with limited exceptions, must submit Form I-418, along with certain information regarding longshore work, in paper form to CBP at the port where immigration inspection is performed. Most commercial vessel operators are also required to submit a paper Form I-418 to CBP at the final U.S. port prior to departing for a foreign place. DHS is modifying the applicable regulations to provide for the electronic submission of Form I-418. Under this rule, vessel operators will be required to electronically submit the data elements on Form I-418 to CBP through an electronic data interchange system (EDI) approved by CBP in lieu of submitting a paper form. This will streamline vessel arrival and departure processes by providing for the electronic submission of the information collected on the Form I-418, eliminating redundant data submissions, simplifying vessel inspections, and automating recordkeeping.

The Coast Guard is proposing to establish a temporary special local regulation in the navigable waters of San Francisco Bay in San Francisco, CA in support of the San Francisco Sail Grand Prix 2021 race periods on March 24, 2022 through March 27, 2022. This special local regulation is necessary to provide for the safety of life on these navigable waters and to ensure the safety of mariners transiting the area from the dangers associated with high-speed sailing activities associated with the Sail Grand Prix 2021 race event. This proposed rulemaking would temporarily prohibit persons and vessels from entering into, transiting through, anchoring, blocking, or loitering within the event area adjacent to the city of San Francisco waterfront near the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz Island, unless authorized by the Captain of the Port San Francisco or a designated representative. We invite your comments on this proposed rulemaking.
