On April 29, 2010, the Federal Maritime Commission issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (“NPRM”) proposing a new part 532, providing an exemption for non-vessel-operating common carriers (“NVOCCs”) agreeing to negotiated rate arrangements from certain provisions and requirements of the Shipping Act of 1984 and certain provisions and requirements of the Commission's regulations. The NPRM also announced that the Commission would hold a public meeting if any member of the public made a request to make oral comments.
