SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The document published in the Federal Register on March 16, 2009 (74 FR 11196), contained errors that this document corrects.

We are making the following corrections in part 10. In § 10.109, we are reinserting three STCW endorsements that were erroneously left out of the final rule. In § 10.211, the Coast Guard discussed the date change in the final rule (74 FR 11197). However, when making the date change, we inadvertently missed this instance. In § 10.213, the change in the footnote to Table 12.213(c) is a correction to a cross-reference, which the Coast Guard inadvertently missed when we revised part 10 in the final rule. In § 10.227, we are correcting a similar cross-reference correction. In § 10.235, we are making corrections to clarify the language in that section.

We are making the following corrections in part 11. In § 11.102, we are correcting those sections where material that has been incorporated by reference may be found in part 11. In § 11.104, we are removing redundancy by eliminating definitions that already appear at the beginning of the subchapter in § 10.107. Finally, in the final rule, the amendatory instruction for § 11.601 incorrectly referred to paragraphs (a) through (c) (79 FR 11252). We have included the correct amendatory language here.

None of the above listed corrections are substantive in nature.
