Coast Guard July 30, 2014 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Security Zones; Seattle's Seafair Fleet Week Moving Vessels, Puget Sound, WA
Document Number: 2014-17973
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-07-30
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
On July 25, 2014, the Coast Guard published in the Federal Register (79 FR 43257) a notice of enforcement for the Seattle's Seafair Fleet Week Moving Vessels security zones. In the Notice of Enforcement, the Coast Guard identified three participating vessels that are designated as part of the security zone. One of those vessels was the HMCS YELLOWKNIFE (NCSM 706). After the Notice of Enforcement was published, the Coast Guard was informed by the Canadian government that the HMCS EDMONTON (NCSM 703) will be participating in the Seattle Seafair Fleet Week event and not the HMCS YELLOWKNIFE. This document corrects that error.

Document Number: 2014-17653
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-07-30
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
This rule finalizes the amendments to Coast Guard regulations for certain lifesaving equipment, including launching appliances (winches and davits), release mechanisms, survival craft (lifeboats, inflatable liferafts, and inflatable buoyant apparatus), rescue boats, and automatic disengaging devices, which were published as an interim rule and amended by a second interim rule. Additionally, it finalizes the amendments to the requirements for Coast Guard-approved release mechanisms proposed in a supplementary notice of proposed rulemaking (SNPRM). This final rule harmonizes the Coast Guard's design, construction, and performance standards for this lifesaving equipment with international standards, while providing for the use of qualified independent laboratories, instead of Coast Guard inspectors, during the approval process and for production inspections of certain types of lifesaving equipment.
