Federal Maritime Commission.
The Federal Maritime Commission (“Commission”) published an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on May 16, 2000, seeking comments on the reasonableness of tariff access charges. The Commission determined not to promulgate regulations governing tariff access charges, but rather issued a Circular Letter on October 6, 2000, to provide guidance to common carriers, conferences and tariff publishers with respect to the issue of reasonable fees. Therefore, this proceeding is discontinued.
This proceeding is discontinued July 18, 2001.Start Further Info

An Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking was issued in this proceeding on May 16, 2000 (65 FR 31130), to address the issue of reasonable fees that may be assessed for accessing tariff systems. Based on comments received and existing circumstances, the Commission determined that promulgation of an actual Proposed Rule on this matter was not necessary. Instead the Commission directed the staff to issue a Circular Letter which provided guidance to common carriers, conferences and tariff publishers as to what costs the Commission believed should not be recovered in establishing tariff access fees. The Circular Letter was issued on October 6, 2000.
In view of the foregoing, this proceeding is hereby discontinued.Start Signature
