Agency: Department of Defense, Department of the Navy
The Department of the Navy (DoN) is amending its certifications and exemptions under the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea, 1972 (72 COLREGS), to reflect that the Deputy Assistant Judge Advocate General (DAJAG) (Admiralty and Maritime Law) has determined that LCAC 1 through 91 and 100 through 173 are vessels of the Navy which, due to their special construction and purpose, cannot fully comply with certain provisions of the 72 COLREGS without interfering with their special functions as naval ships. The intended effect of this rule is to warn mariners in waters where 72 COLREGS apply.

This final rule removes DoD's regulation requiring naval personnel to provide support to dependents. It has been determined that the content of this part is internal DoD policy, and while that policy is publicly available, the part should be removed.
