Type: Notice
Date: 2014-03-17
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
This is a supplemental notice to the August 9, 2013 request for comments on the draft changes to the Marine Safety Manual (MSM), Volume III, Marine Industry Personnel. The draft revision will be available in the docket for this notice. The primary reasons for this supplemental notice are to announce the incorporation in Volume III of the 2010 amendments to the STCW Convention, and to address the public comments received from the initial solicitation as well as input from the Merchant Marine Personnel Advisory Committee. Additionally, chapters 20 through 26 of Volume III have been reformatted, and are now presented as Volume III Part B, chapters 1 through 7. In the draft revision, these proposed revisions since the initial request for comments, including other changes necessary to reorganize and clarify Volume III, are highlighted in yellow. The Coast Guard will consider comments on this draft revision before issuing a final version of this manual.
