Maritime Administration June 10, 2014 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Requirements To Document U.S.-Flag Fishing Industry Vessels of 100 Feet or Greater in Registered Length
Document Number: 2014-13282
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-06-10
Agency: Maritime Administration, Department of Transportation
The Maritime Administration (``MARAD'') is soliciting public comments on amendments to its regulations which implement new requirements regarding certain large fishing industry vessels set forth in the American Fisheries Act of 1998, as amended by the Coast Guard Authorization Act of 2010 (``CGAA'') and the Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation Act of 2012 (``CGMTA''). The proposed revisions to the regulation adds two new exceptions to the restrictions on the eligibility of vessels over 165 feet in registered length to be documented with fishery endorsements, eliminates the 15-day application deadline for vessels whose fishery endorsements have become invalid, limits fishery endorsement eligibility for certain large fishing industry vessels, and eliminates certain exemptions for specific vessels that were deleted in the CGMTA.
