On January 31, 2014, the Coast Guard published a final rule titled “Dry Cargo Residue Discharges in the Great Lakes.” [1] In this final rule, the Coast Guard implemented new requirements related to the operation of U.S. and foreign vessels carrying bulk dry cargo such as limestone, iron ore, and coal on the U.S. waters of the Great Lakes, and the operation of U.S. bulk dry cargo vessels anywhere on the Great Lakes.

Our final rule delayed the effective date of 33 CFR 151.66(b)(5) because it contains collection of information provisions that require approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 44 U.S.C. 3501-3520. On August 5, 2014, OMB approved the collection and assigned OMB Control Number 1625-0072. Accordingly, we announce that section 151.66(b)(5) is enforceable from September 15, 2014. The approval for this collection of information expires on August 31, 2017. This action completes the rulemaking associated with RIN 1625-AA89 and USCG-2004-19621.

This document is issued under the authority of 5 U.S.C. 552(a).
