Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Coast Guard, DHS.

ACTION:

Interim rule; correction.

SUMMARY:

The Coast Guard published an interim rule in the Federal Register on August 18, 2014, to ensure the safe carriage of oil, hazardous substances, and individuals in addition to the crew on U.S.-flagged OSVs of at least 6,000 gross tonnage as measured under the Convention Measurement System. In that interim rule, we revised a paragraph listing consensus standards incorporated by reference. In doing so, we inadvertently duplicated two paragraphs and presented others out of order. This correction resolves that error by removing the doubled paragraphs and reordering the others.

DATES:

This correction is effective on October 17, 2014.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On August 18, 2014, the Coast Guard published an interim rule to ensure the safe carriage of oil, hazardous substances, and individuals in addition to the crew on U.S.-flagged OSVs of at least 6,000 gross tonnage as measured under the Convention Measurement System. 79 FR 48894.

In that rule, the Coast Guard revised 46 CFR 125.180 to include a number of new standards to be incorporated by reference. In the process, we inadvertently duplicated two paragraphs listing standards published by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). In addition, the standards had originally appeared in order of the year those particular editions of the standards were published. We intended to reorganize them by identification number instead, but left some of them out of order. This correction deletes the redundant paragraphs and correctly orders the remaining ones.
