Industry Asked to Evaluate Coast Guard Regs & Suggest Fixes
A Federal Register notice issued late last week is soliciting industry input on existing Coast Guard regulations and guidance while asking commenters whether they favor repeal, replacement or modification. The notice was issued in response to a series of Executive Orders regarding regulation reductions and controlling costs. They will accept comment up until July 10 and note that comments will help assist Coast Guard in their work with the Department of Homeland Security’s Regulatory Reform Task Force. Comments can be submitted by using the Federal eRulemaking Portal at www.regulations.gov and specifying the docket number which is USCG-2017-0480.
