Notice is given that on December 7, 2000, the Federal Maritime Commission (“Commission”) served an Order directing 81 ocean transportation intermediaries (“OTIs”) (“Respondents”) to show cause both why their ocean transportation intermediary licenses (permanent and/or provisional) should not be revoked and why they should not be directed to discontinue their operations in the foreign trades of the United States for failure to comply with the requirements of the Ocean Shipping Reform Act of 1998, Pub. L. 105-258, 112 Stat. 1902 (“OSRA”). The Commission took this action because the Respondents still have not met new requirements effective May 1, 1999 prescribed by OSRA and the Commission's implementing rules thereunder, notwithstanding extensive efforts by the Commission to bring them into compliance.
Specifically, Respondents have been directed pursuant to sections 11 and 14 of the Shipping Act of 1984 (“1984 Act”), 46 U.S.C. app 1710 and 1713, to submit affidavits of fact and memoranda of law to show cause why: the Commission should not revoke their licenses for failure to comply with section 19 of the 1984 Act and 46 CFR Part 515; and why the Commission should not order each of them to cease and desist from operating as an OTI, including publication of any tariff, in the foreign trade of the United States.
The Order requires that affidavits of fact and memoranda of law filed by Respondents and any intervenors in support of Respondents be filed no later than January 12, 2001.
The full text of the Order may be viewed on the Commission's home page at http://www.fmc.gov, or at the Office of the Secretary, room 1046, 800 N. Capitol Street, NW., Washington, DC.
Petitions for leave to intervene may be filed in accordance with 46 CFR 502.72.
