SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

In final rule 59 FR 31934, the safety fallout radius around the barge conducting fireworks display is no longer correct because the marine event sponsor has increased the fireworks display shell size (12 inches) and amount of fireworks display (600 lbs Division 1.3G UN 0335), causing an increase in the required safety fallout radius of 300 yards around the barge conducting fireworks display activities.

Need for Correction

As published, the final regulations contain errors which may prove to be dangerous to the public and need to be amended. Accordingly, 33 CFR Part 165 is corrected by making the following correcting amendments:
