This document provides required notice of substantive rules issued by the Coast Guard and that were made temporarily effective between July 2014 and September 2014, and that expired before they could be published in the Federal Register. This notice lists temporary safety zones, security zones, special local regulations, drawbridge operation regulations and regulated navigation areas, all of limited duration and for which timely publication in the Federal Register was not possible.
Lifesaving Devices-Uninspected Commercial Barges and Sailing Vessels
Document Number: 2014-27154
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-11-17
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard published a final rule in the Federal Register on September 10, 2014, requiring the use of wearable personal flotation devices for individuals on board uninspected non-passenger commercial barges and sailing vessels. In the final rule, the Coast Guard amended several tables to reflect this requirement. However, in a subsequent final rule regarding non-substantive changes, the Coast Guard removed the same tables in an effort to consolidate the regulations by referencing to a common table instead. The original final rule's amendatory instructions can no longer be amended as the tables were removed prior to the original final rule's effective date by the subsequent effective final rule. This correction removes the amendatory instructions in the original final rule for the affected tables.
