Federal Maritime Commission.


Final rule; correction.


The Federal Maritime Commission is correcting a final rule that appeared in the Federal Register on March 2, 2011, exempting licensed non-vessel-operating common carriers that enter into negotiated rate arrangements from the tariff rate publication requirements of the Shipping Act of 1984. This correction clarifies that the negotiated rate arrangement must be agreed to prior to receipt of the cargo and removes the requirement that non-vessel-operating common carriers indicate their intention to move cargo under negotiated rate arrangements on their Form FMC-1 on file with the Commission.


Effective April 18, 2011.
