Unified Agenda 1625-AA93

Notification of Arrival in U.S. Ports; Certain Dangerous Cargoes; Electronic Submission

Summary

This rulemaking project would revise Notice of Arrival (NOA) regulations found at 33 CFR part 160, subpart C, by: 1) Adding to the list of certain dangerous cargo (CDC) ammonium nitrate and certain ammonium nitrate-based fertilizers, in bulk, as well as propylene oxide, alone or mixed with ethylene oxide, in bulk; 2) adding two options for vessels to submit NOAs electronically, and 3) defining CDC residue. In addition, the rulemaking would confirm that U.S. recreational vessels are not subject to part 160 requirements. This rulemaking would also revise 33 CFR parts 104 and 105 as necessary. This project supports the Coast Guard's broad roles and responsibilities of maritime safety, maritime security, and maritime stewardship.
