This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
Section 19(b) of the Shipping Act of 1984, as amended, provides that the Federal Maritime Commission (“Commission”) may revoke any Ocean Transportation Intermediary (“OTI”) license for failure of a licensee to maintain valid proof of financial responsibility on file with the Commission. The Commission's implementing regulations, 46 CFR 515.16(a), provide for such revocation effective as of the termination date of the proof of financial responsibility, unless the licensee shall have submitted a valid replacement before such termination date.
The surety bond issued in favor of Global Shipping, Inc., Parkway One, Suite 201, 2697 International Parkway, Virginia Beach, VA 23452, was cancelled effective December 9, 1999. On November 23, 1999, the licensee was advised that it is prohibited from providing transportation by water as an NVOCC in the foreign commerce of the United States unless the Commission received a valid replacement proof of financial responsibility with an effective date on or before December 9, 1999. The licensee has failed to provide such a replacement.
Therefore, By virtue of the authority vested in me by the Commission as set forth in 46 CFR 501.27(g)(1998);
Notice is hereby given, That the OTI license issued to Global Shipping, Inc. Start Printed Page 3239is hereby revoked effective December 9, 1999.
It is ordered, That the above OTI license be returned to the Commission for cancellation.
It is further ordered, That a notice of this action be published in the Federal Register and a copy of this Order be served upon Global Shipping, Inc.Start Signature
Austin L. Schmitt,
Director, Bureau of Tariffs, Certification and Licensing.
