On January 30, 2015, the Coast Guard published a final rule that revised or amended existing notice of arrival and automatic identification system requirements. 80 FR 5282. Our final rule delayed the effective date of § 164.46(b) and (c) because these paragraphs contain collection of information provisions that require approval by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 44 U.S.C. 3501-3520. On March 29, 2016, OMB approved the collection assigned OMB Control Number 1625-0112, Enhanced Maritime Domain Awareness via Electronic Transmission of Vessel Transit Data. Accordingly, we announce that paragraphs (b) and (c) of § 164.46 are effective April 7, 2016. The approval for this collection of information expires on March 31, 2019.

This document is issued under the authority of 33 U.S.C. 1231 and 46 U.S.C. 70114. With respect to the other collection of information associated with the January 2015 final rule—OMB Control Number 1625-0100, Advance Notice of Vessel Arrival, on August 20, 2015—we published a document (80 FR 50576) that announced OMB's approval and the effective date of notice of arrival requirements in §§ 160.204(a)(5)(vii), 160.205, and 160.208(a) and (c) associated with that collection.
