SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The final rule published in the Federal Register on July 29, 2003 (FR Doc. 03-19132) modified Table 14 to part 679 (68 FR 9907). However, Table 14 is a collection of three tables, each of which is included in a separate appendix to 50 CFR part 679: Tables14a, 14b, and 14c. The language contained in amendatory instruction number 9, referenced only a change in Table 14a, although text was provided that effectively modified both 14a and 14b and left 14c unchanged. This change did not reflect accurately the intended revision.

The intent of the revision in the final rule was to add the contents of Table 14c to Table 14b, remove Table 14c, and modify the contents of both Table 14a and 14b. The net effect of this action would have been to combine the Washington State Port of Landing Codes into the table containing those codes for non-Alaska ports, including Canada and the States of California and Oregon, and remove the CDQ/IFQ Primary Ports for Vessel Clearance information from Tables 14a and 14b. This correction modifies the table titles to accurately reflect the intent of the final rule.

In addition, the table title was inserted into the body of the table, rather than added to the table title. This action corrects the table titles.
