Interim rule; delay of effective date.
The Coast Guard announces an additional two-year delay of the effective date of its 2013 interim rule, which updates and revises tables that list liquid hazardous materials, liquefied gases, and compressed gases that have been approved by the Coast Guard and the International Maritime Organization for maritime transportation in bulk. Start Printed Page 68132These tables also indicate how the pollution potential of each substance has been categorized. The Coast Guard received comments to our 2013 interim rule regarding technical errors in the revised tables and is working to correct those errors. The additional delay will allow the Coast Guard to complete its work to correct technical errors and solicit additional comments in a supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking, prior to finalizing the rule. This rulemaking promotes the Coast Guard's maritime safety and stewardship missions.
The effective date of the interim final rule published at 78 FR 50147 (Aug. 16, 2013), delayed until January 16, 2014, at 78 FR 56837 (Sept. 16, 2013), and further delayed until January 16, 2015, at 79 FR 2106 (Jan. 13, 2014), is further delayed until January 16, 2017.
