Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC)-Reader RequirementsRule2016-1938308/23/2016DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITYHomeland Security DepartmentThe Coast Guard is issuing a final rule to require owners and operators of certain vessels and facilities regulated by the Coast Guard to conduct electronic inspections of Transportation Worker Identification Credentials (TWICs) a … The Coast Guard is issuing a final rule to require owners and operators of certain vessels and facilities regulated by the Coast Guard to conduct electronic inspections of Transportation Worker Identification Credentials (TWICs) as an access control measure. This final rule also implements recordkeeping requirements and security plan amendments that would incorporate these TWIC requirements. The TWIC program, including the electronic inspection requirements in this final rule, is an important component of the Coast Guard's multi-layered system of access control requirements designed to enhance maritime security. This rulemaking action builds upon existing regulations designed to ensure that only individuals who hold a valid TWIC are granted unescorted access to secure areas of Coast Guard-regulated vessels and facilities. The Coast Guard and the Transportation Security Administration have already promulgated regulations pursuant to the Maritime Transportation Security Act that require mariners and other individuals to hold a TWIC prior to gaining unescorted access to a secure area. By requiring certain high-risk vessels and facilities to perform electronic TWIC inspections, this rule enhances security at those locations. This rule also implements the Security and Accountability For Every Port Act of 2006 electronic reader requirements.transportation-worker-identification-credential-twic-reader-requirementsFR-Doc-2016-19383
Vessel Requirements for Notices of Arrival and Departure, and Automatic Identification SystemRule2015-0133101/30/2015DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITYHomeland Security DepartmentConsistent with statutory requirements and provisions, the Coast Guard is expanding the applicability of notice of arrival (NOA) and automatic identification system (AIS) requirements to include more commercial vessels. This fi … Consistent with statutory requirements and provisions, the Coast Guard is expanding the applicability of notice of arrival (NOA) and automatic identification system (AIS) requirements to include more commercial vessels. This final rule amends the applicability of notice of arrival requirements to include additional vessels, sets forth a mandatory method for electronic submission of NOAs, and modifies related reporting content, timeframes, and procedures. This final rule also extends the applicability of AIS requirements beyond Vessel Traffic Service (VTS) areas to all U.S. navigable waters, and requires that additional commercial vessels install and use AIS, consistent with statutory requirements, and in limited cases, the Secretary's discretionary authority. These changes will improve navigation safety, enhance our ability to identify and track vessels, and heighten our overall maritime domain awareness (MDA), thus helping us address threats to maritime transportation safety and security.vessel-requirements-for-notices-of-arrival-and-departure-and-automatic-identification-systemFR-Doc-2015-01331
Seafarers' Access to Maritime FacilitiesProposed Rule2014-3001312/29/2014DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITYHomeland Security DepartmentThe Coast Guard proposes to require each owner or operator of a facility regulated by the Coast Guard to implement a system that provides seafarers and other individuals with access between vessels moored at the facility and the facili … The Coast Guard proposes to require each owner or operator of a facility regulated by the Coast Guard to implement a system that provides seafarers and other individuals with access between vessels moored at the facility and the facility gate, in a timely manner and at no cost to the seafarer or other individual. Generally, transiting through a facility is the only way that a seafarer or other individual can egress to shore beyond the facility to access basic shoreside businesses and services, and meet with family members and other personnel that do not hold a Transportation Worker Identification Credential. This proposed rule would help to ensure that no facility owner or operator denies or makes it impractical for seafarers or other individuals to transit through the facility, and would require them to document their access procedures in their Facility Security Plans. This proposed rule would implement section 811 of the Coast Guard Authorization Act of 2010.seafarers-access-to-maritime-facilitiesFR-Doc-2014-30013

Provisions for Fees Related to Hazardous Materials Endorsements and Transportation Worker Identification CredentialsRule2013-0973204/25/2013DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITYHomeland Security DepartmentThe Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is removing specific fee amounts from regulations regarding security threat assessments (STAs) and credentialing for Hazardous Materials Endorsements (HMEs) and Transportation Wo … The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is removing specific fee amounts from regulations regarding security threat assessments (STAs) and credentialing for Hazardous Materials Endorsements (HMEs) and Transportation Worker Identification Credentials (TWICs). These provisions include State collection of the HME fee, TSA collection of the HME fee, and collection of the TWIC fee. Removing specific fee references will enable TSA to have the necessary flexibility to lower or increase fees as necessary to meet the statutory obligation to recover its costs. Current fee amounts as identified in these sections will remain unchanged until any future revisions to fee schedules are published in the Federal Register.provisions-for-fees-related-to-hazardous-materials-endorsements-and-transportation-workerFR-Doc-2013-09732

This NPRM also proposes additional requirements associated with electronic TWIC readers, including recordkeeping requirements for those owners and operators required to use an electronic TWIC reader, and security plan amendments to incorporate TWIC requirements. The TWIC program, including the proposed TWIC reader requirements in this rule, is an important component of the Coast Guard's multi-layered system of access control requirements and other measures designed to enhance maritime security. This rulemaking action, once final, would build upon existing Coast Guard regulations designed to ensure that only individuals who hold a TWIC are granted unescorted access to secure areas at those locations. The Coast Guard has already promulgated regulations pursuant to the Maritime Transportation Security Act of 2002 (MTSA) that require mariners and other individuals to obtain a TWIC and present it for inspection by security personnel prior to gaining access to such secure areas. By requiring certain vessels and facilities to perform TWIC inspections using electronic TWIC readers, this rulemaking would further enhance security at those locations. This rulemaking would also implement the Security and Accountability For Every Port Act of 2006 electronic TWIC reader requirements.transportation-worker-identification-credential-twic-reader-requirementsFR-Doc-2013-06182

These fees reimburse TSA for the costs of administering the programs. The proposed rule advises that future revisions to fee schedules will be published in the Federal Register. After public comments, TSA proposes to publish a final rule that removes specific fee amounts from 49 CFR 1572.403 (state collection of HME fee), 1572.405 (TSA collection of HME fee), and 1572.501 (collection of TWIC fee) to enable TSA to have necessary flexibility to lower or increase fees as necessary to meet the statutory obligation to recover its costs.provisions-for-fees-related-to-hazardous-materials-endorsements-and-transportation-workerFR-Doc-2012-14426

The IFR codified a statutory requirement of the Implementing Recommendations of the 9/11 Commission Act of 2007 that the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) establish a system to screen 100 percent of cargo transported on passenger aircraft not later than August 3, 2010. It established the Certified Cargo Screening Program, in which TSA certifies shippers, indirect air carriers, and other entities as Certified Cargo Screening Facilities (CCSFs) to screen cargo prior to transport on passenger aircraft. Under the IFR, each CCSF applicant had to successfully undergo an assessment of their facility by a TSA-approved validation firm or by TSA. In response to public comment, this Final Rule removes all validation firm and validator provisions, so that TSA will continue to conduct assessments of the applicant's facility to determine if certification is appropriate. The IFR also required that if an aircraft operator or foreign air carrier screens cargo off an airport, it must do so as a CCSF. The Final Rule deletes this requirement, as aircraft operators are already screening cargo on airport under a TSA-approved security program, and do not need a separate certification to screen cargo off airport. This rule also proposes a fee range for the processing of Security Threat Assessments, and seeks comment on the proposed fee range and the methodology used to develop the fee. TSA will announce the final fee in a future Federal Register notice.air-cargo-screeningFR-Doc-2011-20840

The interim rule defined certain dangerous cargo residue (CDC residue) as limited to certain dry cargo and made other changes to regulations in 33 CFR parts 104, 105, and 160. After reviewing comments on the interim rule, the Coast Guard issued a notice of proposed rulemaking in 2009 that proposed to change the CDC residue definition to include certain bulk liquids and liquefied gases in residue quantities, revise the definition of CDC to reflect the proposed change in the CDC residue definition, and adopt other changes introduced by the 2005 interim rule. This final rule will relieve an unnecessary burden on industry by including more lower-risk cargoes in the CDC residue category and thereby reducing the number of notice of arrival submissions required based on the cargo a vessel is carrying.notification-of-arrival-in-us-ports-certain-dangerous-cargoesFR-Doc-2010-24221

To assist in carrying out this mandate, this rule establishes a program under which TSA will certify cargo screening facilities located in the U.S. that volunteer to screen cargo prior to tendering it to aircraft operators for carriage on passenger aircraft. This rule requires affected passenger aircraft operators to ensure that either an aircraft operator or certified cargo screening facility that does so in accordance with TSA standards, or TSA itself, screens all cargo loaded on passenger aircraft. TSA will require certified cargo screening facilities (CCSFs) to screen cargo using TSA-approved methods and implement chain of custody measures to ensure the security of the screened cargo throughout the air cargo supply chain prior to tendering it for transport on passenger aircraft. CCSF personnel must successfully undergo a TSA-conducted security threat assessment (STA) and pay a fee for that assessment. TSA proposes a fee to cover the Government's costs in conducting the STA and requests comment on the fee and the methodology used to develop the fee. Before being certified and periodically thereafter, the CCSF must undergo examination by a TSA-approved validator. Validators must have specified qualifications, complete training regarding the certified cargo screening program (CCSP), and successfully undergo a TSA- conducted STA as described in the discussion of part 1540 in this preamble, and pay a fee for that assessment.https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2009/09/16/E9-21794/air-cargo-screeningFR-Doc-E9-21794
