Department of the Navy, Department of Defense.
This final rule removes Department of the Navy regulations governing Certification and Exemptions under the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea, 1972. The certification and exemption of certain naval vessels which cannot comply fully with the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea, 1972, is governed by statute and executive order which direct that notice of certification of alternate compliance be published in the Federal Register. The content of this part imposes no burden on the public, and the rule is not required. Notice will continue to be provided the public through the publication of notice documents in the Federal Register. Therefore, this rule can be removed from the CFR.
This rule is effective on January 31, 2019.

33 U.S.C. 1605 and Executive Order 11964 of January 19, 1977, direct the Department of the Navy to provide public notice in the Federal Register of U.S. Navy vessels which cannot comply fully with the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea, 1972. It has been determined that publication of this CFR part removal for public comment is impracticable, unnecessary, and contrary to public interest since statutorily required notice will be accomplished through publication of notice documents in the Federal Register.
Removal of this part does not add or reduce the burden or cost on the public in any way. The cost of certifying alternate compliance of U.S. Navy vessels and notifying the public of such certification will remain the same with removal of the part.
This rule is not significant under Executive Order (E.O.) 12866, “Regulatory Planning and Review,” therefore, E.O. 13771, “Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs” does not apply.
