Start Preamble


Coast Guard, DOT.


Final rule; announcement of enforcement date.


The Coast Guard is announcing the approval of a collection-of-information requirement pertaining to the implementation of safety measures for uninspected passenger vessels over 100 gross tons, which carry 12 or fewer passengers for hire. The implementation allows owners, operators, and/or agents of those type vessels to submit an application for the issuance of a special permit to participate in a Marine Event of National Significance. It also allows the development of specific manning, structural fire protection, operating, and equipment requirements for a limited fleet of PVSA-exempted vessels.


46 CFR 26.03-8 as published May 15, 2002 (67 FR 34756), is enforceable as of June 24, 2002.
