Background and Purpose
Section 70110 of the Maritime Transportation Security Act provides that the Secretary of Homeland Security may impose conditions of entry into the United States from ports that are not maintaining effective anti-terrorism measures. The Coast Guard has been delegated the authority by the Secretary to carry out the provisions of this section. On May 2, 2005, the Coast Guard published a Notice of policy in the Federal Register, (70 FR 22668) announcing that it had determined that ports in Nauru, among other countries, were not maintaining effective anti-terrorism measures, and imposed conditions of entry. Based on recent information, the Coast Guard has determined that Nauru is now maintaining effective anti-terrorism measures, and is accordingly removing the conditions of entry announced in its previously published notice of policy.Start Signature
