Application for Recertification of Cook Inlet Regional Citizens' Advisory Council
The Coast Guard announces the availability of, and seeks comments on, the recertification of the Cook Inlet Regional Citizen's Advisory Council (CIRCAC) for September 1, 2020 through August 31, 2021. Under the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 (OPA 90), the Coast Guard may certify the CIRCAC on an annual basis. This advisory group monitors the activities of terminal facilities and crude oil tankers under the Cook Inlet program established by the statute. The Coast Guard may certify an alternative voluntary advisory group in lieu of the CIRCAC. The current certification for the CIRCAC will expire August 31, 2020.
