II. Regulatory History

We did not publish a notice of proposed rulemaking for this rule. Under Title 5 of the United States Code (U.S.C.), section 553(b)(A), the Coast Guard finds that this rule is exempt from notice and public comment rulemaking requirements because these changes involve rules of agency organization, procedure, or practice. In addition, the Coast Guard finds that notice and comment procedures are unnecessary under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), as this rule consists only of technical and editorial corrections, and these changes will have no substantive effect on the public. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that, for the same reasons, good cause exists for making this final rule effective upon publication in the Federal Register.

III. Basis and Purpose

This rule, which becomes effective on July 28, 2017, makes technical and editorial corrections throughout titles 33 and 46. These changes are necessary to correct errors, change addresses, and make other non-substantive changes that improve the clarity of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). This rule does not create or change any substantive requirements.

This final rule is issued under the authority of 5 U.S.C. 552(a) and 553, 14 U.S.C. 2(3), 633; 33 U.S.C. 471 and 499; 46 U.S.C. 2103, 3306, 3703, 5104, and 7701; and Department of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170.1.

IV. Discussion of the Rule

The Coast Guard periodically issues technical, organizational, and conforming amendments to existing regulations in titles 33 and 46 of the CFR. These “technical amendments” provide the public with more accurate and current regulatory information, but do not change the effect on the public of any Coast Guard regulations.

This rule amends the following sections of title 33 in the CFR:

In § 3.04-1, the Coast Guard adds new paragraph (c), which includes information about the location and boundaries of the Activities Europe Marine Inspection Zone in relation to the Coast Guard “Atlantic Area” to reflect a recent organizational change that placed Activities Europe under the operational and administrative control of the Coast Guard's Atlantic Area Command. The change does not involve a boundary move and only clarifies § 3.04-1 to describe the location of the eastern boundary, and the supervising commander. That eastern boundary is already established in the Activities Far East regulation at 33 CFR 3.70-20; this change states the same boundary from the perspective of Activities Europe. Activities Europe has reported to Coast Guard Atlantic Area (LANTAREA) since 2006 (see 71 FR 35816).

Section 20.302(b) and (c) are revised to include the toll free telephone and fax numbers for the U.S. Coast Guard Administrative Law Judge Docketing Center.

The tables of § 20.304(d) and (g) are revised to accommodate different methods of mail delivery to include Priority or Express Mail with signature confirmation as an alternative to Certified Mail, return receipt.

In § 64.03(b)(1), the text “Subchapter D” is replaced with the text “Subchapter E” to correct a longstanding error in the cross-reference. Subchapter D, “International Navigation Rules,” does not address dredging pipelines, which are the subject of § 64.03(b)(1). Annex V to subchapter E, “Inland Navigation Rules,” addresses lights on dredging pipelines. Regulations for these lights have never been in subchapter D.

This rule revises § 67.10-25(a) to remove a redundant address.

This rule corrects a typographical error in one of the geographical coordinates in § 80.155(b).

Also, this rule corrects a typographical error in § 80.502(a) by removing the letter “s” from “Little Egg Inlet.”

In § 82.5, this rule changes the text “33 CFR 88.30(h)” to “33 CFR 83.30(h),” to conform to the regulatory redesignation made by a 2014 final rule (see 79 FR 37898, July 2, 2014).

This rule revises §§ 83.09(e)(i) and 83.24(d) by adding minor rewordings and terminology revisions to conform to the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea (COLREGS).

This rule redesignates existing § 83.24(i), as new paragraph (j), and existing paragraph (j) as new paragraph (i). The new paragraph (i), removes the text “paragraph (a), (c), or (i)” and adds, in its place, the text “paragraphs (a), (c), or (j).” These changes are made to conform to COLREGS.

This rule amends § 84.15 by redesignating paragraph (b) as (b)(i) and redesignating paragraph (c) as (b)(ii), and redesignating the note to paragraph (c) as the note to paragraph (b)(ii) to align CFR numbering to conform to COLREGS.

This rule updates the Coast Guard's address information in §§ 104.400(b), 120.305(a), 133.3(b), 133.25(c), 135.9, 136.3, 136.5(b), 136.101(b), 137.15, 138.45(a), 151.1510(a)(3)(ii), 151.2025(b), 151.2026(b), 157.100(b), 157.200(b), 159.4(a), 159.12(c), 159.15(a) and (c), 159.17(a), and 159.19(a). Also, in § 138.45(a), the Coast Guard updates the phone number and fax number for the Coast Guard's National Pollution Funds Center.

In § 105.110(b), this rule revises the internal cross-references to conform to regulatory changes made by a 2007 rule (72 FR 3492, Jan. 25, 2007), which does not affect the meaning of the cross-references.

This rule amends the authority citation in part 109. This change makes necessary conforming amendments to reflect the transfers of functions from the Secretary of War to the Secretary of Transportation to the Secretary of Homeland Security, and to eliminate superfluous references in law.

This rule revises § 110.79c to correct erroneous coordinates describing the boundaries of the anchorage at Fish Creek Harbor, WI and to add a note that the Town of Gibraltar, WI regulates the use of vessels and moorings in that area. This technical amendment does not alter the existing boundaries of the anchorage.

This rule redesignates §§ 115.10 through 115.30. Those redesignations are as follows: Current § 115.10, “Limiting date in permits,” becomes § 115.15; current § 115.15, “Permit bonds,” becomes § 115.20; current Start Printed Page 35075§ 115.20, “Transfer of permits,” becomes § 115.30; and current § 115.30, “Sufficiency of State authority for bridges” becomes § 115.10. The purpose of these redesignations is to have the state authority regulations appear together in the CFR.

This rule amends §§ 115.05 and 115.50(e) introductory text and (e)(1) by replacing the word “extract” with “excerpt.” The purpose of this change is to use a term more clearly understood to mean that the applicant of a bridge permit should “select” a section, instead of “pulling out” a section from the charter, statement of ownership, minutes of the organization, or proceedings when applying for a bridge permit. In addition, this rule corrects grammatical errors in § 115.50(e) by adding the word “an” before “excerpt” and adding the word “the” before “minutes.”

This rule amends language in § 115.50 “Application for bridge permits” paragraph (h)(2) by changing the opening phrase as follows: (1) “Currents” is being changed to “current” because inland rivers have one current, which only flows one way; (2) “tidal water” is being added to clarify that the current flows two ways (ebbs and flows); (3) “strength of current” is being removed because it is a function of the navigation study, which comes prior to the bridge application process; and (4) “low and high water” is removed because of redundancy in paragraph (h)(3).

This rule clarifies a phrase in § 115.50(h)(3) by replacing the text “the plane above which flood waters have not remained more than 2 percent of the time” with the text “the 2 percent flowline (the plane above which flood waters have not remained more than 2 percent of the time)” to better describe the records of river heights to be shown if they are available.

This rule amends § 117.55(a) by replacing “through” with “and” because there are only two other sections within the range described: another section was removed by a 2006 rule (71 FR 70305, Dec. 4, 2006).

This rule amends § 155.480(b)(2)(iii) by changing the internal cross-reference to conform to regulatory redesignations made by a 2013 rule (78 FR 42642, July 16, 2013), which does not affect the meaning of the cross-references. A 2015 technical amendment attempted to correct the cross-reference but inadvertently omitted the citations to paragraphs (b)(2) and (3).

This rule amends §§ 155.1065(a), 155.1070(f), 155.5035(k), 155.5061(a), (c), and (f), 155.5065(a), 155.5067(a), and section 6.5 of appendix B to part 155 to change the name of the office listed in these regulations to reflect delegation from Commandant (CG-CVC) to Commandant (CG-MER).

This rule amends §§ 155.1065(h), 155.1070(g), and 155.5075(a) and (b) to change the name of the office listed in these regulations to reflect delegation from Director of Inspections and Compliance (CG-5PC) to Director of Incident Management and Preparedness Policy (CG-5RI).

Sections 155.4025 and 155.4055(d) and (f) are revised to show a change in the office name from “Director of Prevention Policy (CG-5P)” to “Assistant Commandant for Response Policy (CG-5R)” to reflect that office's delegation.

This rule amends the formatting and specific portions of the text in the Table to § 161.12(c) for clarity and ease of reading. The changes include:

(a) Formatting changes to disaggregate one column into two columns and add letters and numbers to each row;

(b) Moving the Maritime Mobile Service Identifier (MMSI) from the “VTS and VMRS Centers” column to the “Center call sign and MMSI” column; and

(c) Removing the name of the “Center MMSI call sign” column, and adding in its place, “Center call sign and MMSI.”

This rule also amends the table heading and text in Table to § 161.12(c) for the following reasons:

(a) Revise the frequency listed for Buzzards Bay Control from “156.600 MHz (Ch. 12)” to “156.550 MHz (Ch. 11)” to reflect the new listening frequency, as approved by the Federal Communications Commission;

(b) Correct a longitude coordinate for Buzzards Bay Control to accurately reflect the correct position of the Buzzards Bay Entrance Light;

(c) Revise the coordinate location for Puget Sound Seattle Traffic (Ch. 5A) to reflect the closure of the Canadian traffic management area “Tofino Traffic.” As a result of this closure, we are changing the description of the sub-areas for our joint U.S./Canadian Vessel Traffic Services (VTS) area. Neither the size of the area has changed nor has the radio frequency. The change only reflects the way the Coast Guard describes and identifies the sub-areas;

(d) Revise the name of the traffic management area Puget Sound from “Tofino Traffic 003160012” to “Prince Rupert Traffic 003160013,” and to update the coordinates for the monitoring area to reflect the closure of Tofino Traffic; and

(e) Revise the coordinate location for Puget Sound Victoria Traffic to reflect the closure of the Canadian traffic management area “Tofino Traffic.”

This rule amends the Table to § 161.45(b) by revising the heading and by removing an “*” to correct a typographical error.

This rule amends § 161.50 by adding symbols to the coordinates for Vessel Traffic Service San Francisco to denote degrees.

This rule amends the introduction to § 161.55 by removing the text referring to the waters known as “the Strait of Juan de Fuca, Haro Strait, Boundary Pass, and the Strait of Georgia to the Washington State coastline” and the areas covering those navigable waters including “Puget Sound, Hood Canal, Possession Sound, the San Juan Island Archipelago, Rosario Strait, Guemes Channel, Bellingham Bay, the U.S. waters of the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the Strait of Georgia,” and adding, in its place, reference to the “U.S. navigable waters of the Salish Sea.” In 2009, the U.S. Board on Geographic Names made a determination that waters previously described in the VTS Puget Sound should now be recognized as the “U.S. navigable waters of Salish Sea,” which replaces the removed text. The deleted text is no longer necessary to describe the VTS Puget Sound area. Also, we are converting some of the latitude and longitude coordinates so that they are in a more common positioning format of degrees, minutes, and decimal minutes instead of degrees, minutes, and seconds.

This rule amends § 161.55(a) by removing the text referring to all the waters including “Strait of Juan de Fuca and its offshore approaches, southern Georgia Strait, the Gulf and San Juan Archipelagos, Rosario Strait, Boundary Pass and Haro Strait, and Strait of Georgia,” and adding in its place, reference to “all navigable waters of the Salish Sea.” In 2009, the U.S. Board on Geographic Names made a determination that waters previously described in the VTS Puget Sound should now be recognized as the “U.S. navigable waters of Salish Sea,” which replaces the removed text for the same reasons, discussed in the preceding paragraph. In paragraph (a), this rule also removes reference to “Tofino” and adds a reference to “Prince Rupert” to reflect the closure of Tofino Traffic.

This rule amends § 162.205(a)(3)(i) and (b)(2)(i) by updating the cross-reference from “part 80” to “part 83” to correctly reference the inland navigation rules in 33 CFR part 83 instead of the international navigation rules in 33 CFR part 80.

This rule amends §§ 164.33(a)(3)(ii) and 164.72(b)(2)(i)(C) by removing Start Printed Page 35076references to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) from this section, as the USACE no longer issues river current publications.

This rule amends the note to paragraph (b) of § 164.46 by adding examples of the types of fishing industry vessels, consistent with 46 U.S.C. 2101. The 2015 rule covering Automatic Identification System requirements (80 FR 5282, Jan. 30, 2015) amended § 164.46(b)(2) to include fishing industry vessels, and described them as “any vessel engaged in the fishing trade.”

This rule amends § 165.100(d)(5) by removing typographical errors from the coordinates listed in this section and changing the coordinates to accurately reflect the correct position for Buzzards Bay Entrance Light.

This rule removes § 165.T0704 and adds § 165.704 in its place. This change reflects that this is a permanent regulation and not a temporary regulation. Also, in paragraph (c)(3), the telephone number is updated.

This rule removes § 165.766 from the CFR as it is duplicative and unnecessary. Section 165.766 became effective after a 2007 interim rule (72 FR 43535, August 6, 2007) was published. However, a 2008 final rule (73 FR 27746, May 14, 2008) made a slight boundary change from the 2007 interim rule, and finalized the interim rule, under a new section number, § 165.770.

This rule revises the heading of § 174.123 by removing “numbered” from the title. Also, we remove the title, “Report of Certificates of Number Issued to Boats, to the Coast Guard” from Coast Guard Form CGHQ-3923 because the title does not reflect the contents of the form. The Coast Guard plans to seek approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to create a new version of the form with a different title.

This rule revises § 181.3 by removing the term and definition of “Model year” because it is superseded by the model year set in the Coast Guard Authorization Act of 2015 (see Pub. L. 114-120, 130 Stat. 27, February 8, 2016).

This rule makes changes in the following sections of title 46 in the CFR:

This rule amends § 4.07-10(a)(4) by removing reference to Coast Guard Form CG-2636, as this form has been cancelled. There is no impact on the public because this form was used internally by Coast Guard investigative officers.

This rule replaces the name of the organization accepted by the Commandant to receive and process casualty data in § 28.80(d)(1) from “Marine Index Bureau” to “Verisk Insurance Solutions.” Verisk Insurance Solutions is the same company as Marine Index Bureau; however, the company name was changed. This rule also removes “Floor 22-8” from the address listed in § 28.80(d)(1) because the current address for Verisk Insurance Solutions does not contain this information.

This rule updates the Coast Guard's address information in §§ 28.1105(a), 31.10-5(a), 39.1003, 44.320(a), 50.10-23, 63.10-1, 63.25-9(a), 69.15(a), 71.65-15(a)(2), 107.317(b), 110.25-3(a)(1), 116.202(a), 127.120(b), 153.9(b), 154.22(a), 161.010-1(a), 161.010-4(a), 162.017-6(a), 162.018-8(a), 162.050-7(a), 162.060-10(a) and (b)(1), 162.060-14(b), 162.060-42(a)(3) and (g), 170.010, 170.100(b), 177.202(d), 177.410(b)(5), and 189.55-15(a)(2).

This rule amends § 39.2007(e) and (f) by correcting an inaccurate cross-reference inadvertently made in the 2013 rule (78 FR 42596, July 16, 2013). The existing cross-reference is to § 39.2009(c) and (d), which do not exist. This rule amends tables to §§ 58.50-5(a), 58.50-10(a), and 182.440(a)(1) by shifting particular rows in each table to correct a misprint. In each existing table the contents of the final row are incorrectly shifted to the left such that the contents do not line up with the headings. This rule also reformats the table titles.

This rule amends the authority citation for part 110 by removing “33 U.S.C. 1509” because Deepwater Ports' regulations in 33 CFR subchapter NN no longer refer to 46 CFR subchapter J “Electrical Engineering” regulations.

This rule amends § 110.15-1 by removing the definitions of “Marine inspector or inspector” and “Qualified person” as these terms are not used in 46 CFR subchapter J. This rule amends § 111.33-1 by removing an outdated reference to § 111.30-21, which was removed from the CFR in 1996 (61 FR 4132, Feb. 2, 1996).

This rule amends §§ 111.105-19 and 120.340(p) by correcting a typographical error in the cross-referenced citations. The existing cross-reference in § 111.105-19 is to § 111.105-19 itself, but should be to § 111.105-9 on explosion-proof and flameproof equipment. The existing cross-reference in § 120.340(p) is to Table 120.3340(p), but should be to Table 1 to § 120.340(p).

V. Regulatory Analyses

We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and Executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses based on these statutes or Executive orders.

A. Regulatory Planning and Review

Executive Orders 12866 (Regulatory Planning and Review) and 13563 (Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review) direct agencies to assess the costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, if regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize net benefits (including potential economic, environmental, public health and safety effects, distributive impacts, and equity). Executive Order 13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying costs and benefits, of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting flexibility. Executive Order 13771 (Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs) directs agencies to reduce regulation and control regulatory costs and provides that “for every one new regulation issued, at least two prior regulations be identified for elimination, and that the cost of planned regulations be prudently managed and controlled through a budgeting process.”

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has not designated this rule a significant regulatory action under section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866. Accordingly, OMB has not reviewed it. Because this rule is not a significant regulatory action, this rule is exempt from the requirements of Executive Order 13771. See the OMB memorandum titled “Interim Guidance Implementing Section 2 of the Executive Order of January 30, 2017 titled `Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs' ” (February 2, 2017). A regulatory analysis (RA) follows.

Because this rule involves non-substantive changes and internal agency practices and procedures, it will not impose any additional costs on the public. The benefit of the non-substantive changes is increased clarity of regulations.

B. Small Entities

Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601-612, rules exempt from the notice and comment requirements of the Administrative Procedure Act are not required to examine the impact of the rule on small entities. Nevertheless, we have considered whether this rule would have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. The term “small entities” comprises small businesses, not-for-profit organizations that are independently owned and operated and are not dominant in their fields, and governmental jurisdictions with populations of less than 50,000.Start Printed Page 35077

There is no cost to this final rule, and we do not expect it will have an impact on small entities because the provisions of this rule are technical and non-substantive. It will have no substantive effect on the public and will impose no additional costs. Therefore, the Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this final rule will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities.

C. Assistance for Small Entities

Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104-121), we want to assist small entities in understanding this rule so that they can better evaluate its effects on them and participate in the rulemaking. If the rule would affect your small business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction and you have questions concerning its provisions or options for compliance, please consult LCDR Nicole Burgess by phone at 202-372-1493 or via email at Nicole.S.Burgess@uscg.mil. The Coast Guard will not retaliate against small entities that question or complain about this rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard.

Small businesses may send comments on the actions of Federal employees who enforce, or otherwise determine compliance with, Federal regulations to the Small Business and Agriculture Regulatory Enforcement Ombudsman and the Regional Small Business Regulatory Fairness Boards. The Ombudsman evaluates these actions annually and rates each agency's responsiveness to small business. If you wish to comment on actions by employees of the Coast Guard, call 1-888-REG-FAIR (1-888-734-3247).

D. Collection of Information

This rule calls for no new collection of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520).

E. Federalism

A rule has implications for federalism under Executive Order 13132 (“Federalism”) if it has a substantial direct effect on States, on the relationship between the national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. We have analyzed this rule under that order and have determined that it is consistent with the fundamental federalism principles and preemption requirements described in Executive Order 13132.

F. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act

The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (2 U.S.C. 1531-1538) requires Federal agencies to assess the effects of their discretionary regulatory actions. In particular, the Act addresses actions that may result in the expenditure by a State, local, or tribal government, in the aggregate, or by the private sector of $100,000,000 (adjusted for inflation) or more in any 1 year. Though this final rule will not result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule elsewhere in this preamble.

G. Taking of Private Property

This final rule will not cause a taking of private property or otherwise have taking implications under Executive Order 12630 (“Governmental Actions and Interference with Constitutionally Protected Property Rights”).

H. Civil Justice Reform

This final rule meets applicable standards in sections 3(a) and 3(b)(2) of Executive Order 12988 (“Civil Justice Reform”), to minimize litigation, eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden.

I. Protection of Children

We have analyzed this final rule under Executive Order 13045 (“Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety Risks”). This final rule is not an economically significant rule and would not create an environmental risk to health or risk to safety that might disproportionately affect children.

J. Indian Tribal Governments

This final rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 13175 (“Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments”), because it does not have a substantial direct effect on one or more Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes.

K. Energy Effects

We have analyzed this final rule under Executive Order 13211 (“Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy Supply, Distribution, or Use”). We have determined that it is not a “significant energy action” under that order because it is not a “significant regulatory action” under Executive Order 12866 and is not likely to have a significant adverse effect on the supply, distribution, or use of energy. The Administrator of OMB's Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs has not designated it as a significant energy action. Therefore, it does not require a Statement of Energy Effects under Executive Order 13211.

L. Technical Standards

The National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act (15 U.S.C. 272 note) directs agencies to use voluntary consensus standards in their regulatory activities unless the agency provides Congress, through the OMB, with an explanation of why using these standards would be inconsistent with applicable law or otherwise impractical. Voluntary consensus standards are technical standards (e.g., specifications of materials, performance, design, or operation; test methods; sampling procedures; and related management systems practices) that are developed or adopted by voluntary consensus standards bodies.

This final rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards.

M. Environment

We have analyzed this rule under Department of Homeland Security Management Directive 023-01 and Commandant Instruction M16475.lD, which guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321-4370f), and have concluded that this action is one of a category of actions that do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. This rule is categorically excluded under section 2.B.2 and figure 2-1, paragraphs (34)(a) and (34)(b) of the Instruction. This final rule involves amendments to regulations that are editorial or procedural. A Record of Environmental Consideration (REC) supporting this determination is available in the docket where indicated under ADDRESSES.

Notes:
1 Maritime Mobile Service Identifier (MMSI) is a unique nine-digit number assigned that identifies ship stations, ship earth stations, coast stations, coast earth stations, and group calls for use by a digital selective calling (DSC) radio, an INMARSAT ship earth station or AIS. AIS requirements are set forth in § 161.21. The requirements set forth in §§ 161.21 and 164.46 of this subchapter apply in those areas denoted with an MMSI number, except for Louisville and Los Angeles/Long Beach.
2 In the event of a communication failure, difficulties or other safety factors, the Center may direct or permit a user to monitor and report on any other designated monitoring frequency or the bridge-to-bridge navigational frequency, 156.650 MHz (Channel 13) or 156.375 MHz (Channel 67), to the extent that doing so provides a level of safety beyond that provided by other means. The bridge-to-bridge navigational frequency, 156.650 MHz (Ch. 13) is used in certain monitoring areas where the level of reporting does not warrant a designated frequency.
3 All geographic coordinates (latitude and longitude) are expressed in North American Datum of 1983 (NAD 83).
4 Some monitoring areas extend beyond navigable waters. Although not required, users are strongly encouraged to maintain a listening watch on the designated monitoring frequency in these areas. Otherwise, they are required to maintain watch as stated in 47 CFR 80.148.
5 In addition to the vessels denoted in § 161.16, requirements set forth in subpart B of this part also apply to any vessel transiting VMRS Buzzards Bay required to carry a bridge-to-bridge radiotelephone by part 26 of this chapter.
6 Until otherwise directed, full VTS services will not be available in the Calcasieu Channel, Calcasieu River Channel, and the ICW from MM 260 to MM 191. Vessels may contact Port Arthur Traffic on the designated VTS frequency to request advisories, but are not required to monitor the VTS frequency in this sector.
7 A Cooperative Vessel Traffic Service was established by the United States and Canada within adjoining waters. The appropriate Center administers the rules issued by both nations; however, enforces only its own set of rules within its jurisdiction. Note: the bridge-to-bridge navigational frequency, 156.650 MHz (Ch. 13), is not so designated in Canadian waters, therefore users are encouraged and permitted to make passing arrangements on the designated monitoring frequencies.

Vessel Traffic Service Puget Sound and the Cooperative Vessel Traffic Service for the Juan de Fuca Region.

The Vessel Traffic Service Puget Sound area consists of the U.S. navigable waters of the Salish Sea from a line drawn from the Washington State coastline at 48°23.133′ N., 124°43.616′ W. on Cape Flattery to the Cape Flattery Light at 48°23.5′ N., 124°44.2′ W. on Tatoosh Island, due west to the U.S. Territorial Sea Boundary; thence northward along the U.S. Territorial Sea Boundary to its intersection with the U.S./Canada International Boundary; thence east along the U.S./Canada International Boundary to 49°00.1′ N., 122°45.3′ W. (International Boundary Range C Rear Light).

(a) Vessel Traffic Service Puget Sound participates in a U.S./Canadian Cooperative Vessel Traffic Service (CVTS) to jointly manage vessel traffic in the Juan de Fuca Region. The CVTS for the Juan de Fuca Region consists of all navigable waters of the Salish Sea, bounded on the northwest by 48°35.749′ N.; and on the southwest by 48°23.5′ N.; and on the west by the rhumb line joining 48°35.749′ N., 124°47.5′ W. with 48°23.5′ N., 124°48.616′ W.; and on the northeast by a line drawn along 49° N. from Vancouver Island to Semiahmoo Bay; and on the southeast, by a line drawn from McCurdy Point on the Quimper Peninsula to Point Partridge on Whidbey Island. Canadian and United States Vessel Traffic Centers (Prince Rupert, B.C., Canada; Vancouver, B.C., Canada; and Seattle, WA) manage traffic within the CVTS area irrespective of the International Boundary.
