The Coast Guard amends its rules relating to standards for marine equipment and updates the incorporation in those rules of references to national and international safety standards. This rule is part of an ongoing effort for regulatory review and reform that increases the focus on results, decreases the focus on process, and expands compliance options for the regulated public.
This final rule is effective December 1, The incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in the rule is approved by the Director of the Federal Register on December 1, Comments and material received from the public, as well as documents mentioned in this preamble as being available in the docket, are part of docket USCG and are available for inspection or copying at the Docket Management Facility, M , U.

Discussion of Comments and Changes. Incorporation by Reference. Regulatory Planning and Review. Collection of Information. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act. Taking of Private Property. Protection of Children. Indian Tribal Governments. We received 13 letters commenting on the proposed rule. Two commenters suggested we hold a public meeting to discuss changes they recommended.
However, as those recommendations are beyond the scope of this rulemaking, we did not adopt this suggestion and no public meeting was held. In numerous cases, the exact designation of standards that we incorporate by reference has changed between the NPRM and this final rule. These changes have been made to bring our regulatory text into compliance with Office of the Federal Register technical requirements governing incorporations by reference, and are intended to help the public better identify exactly which standards we intend to enforce.
They are not intended to be substantive changes and receive no further discussion. Other changes are relatively few in number and may or may not be substantive. A supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking SNPRM is, therefore, unnecessary, and would delay completion of this rulemaking. Thus, we find good cause under 5 U. This rule is part of an ongoing effort for regulatory review and reform, with the goals of: 1 Updating references to incorporated standards that have been modified; 2 removing obsolete rules; 3 making our regulations performance-based; and 4 expanding efforts to promote consensual rulemaking.
The NPRM discusses the changes made by this rule in detail. In general, our changes fall into eight categories:. Start Printed Page This rule affects only inspected commercial vessels. It imposes no new requirements and, therefore, requires no phase-in period. Many of the comments suggested changes that go beyond the scope of this rulemaking, including the adoption of newer industry standards.
This rulemaking is designed to update references to industry standards, but is not intended to introduce new standards that would change the substance of our regulations. We have not adopted any of these suggestions and, in most cases, do not discuss their merits in this document.
Nevertheless, we appreciate these comments and may consider them in the future, should we ever undertake a more substantive revision of our rules. We did not consider this recommendation because it is beyond the scope of this rulemaking. Two commenters strongly recommended that the Coast Guard hold a public meeting to identify cable designs, their functional attributes, and their ultimate recognition as acceptable designs for the marine industry. As previously discussed, these suggestions are beyond the scope of this rulemaking and we did not adopt this recommendation.
One commenter stated that, because this rulemaking is applicable to low voltage power control and medium voltage insulated conductor constructions, the optional insulation systems and armor designs available for these cables should be discussed during this revision cycle to serve the purpose of updating and including state-of-the-art technology. This is beyond the scope of this rulemaking, but we point out that new state-of-the-art technologies can be submitted for equivalency review.
We have reworded the paragraph to incorporate what we believe to be the commenter's concern. We have revised the paragraph accordingly. We disagree and have retained the language used in the NPRM. Studs have threads similar to bolts, but have no heads. C, we decline this request and have retained the language of the NPRM. The commenter's proposed revision was identical to the text in the NPRM.
However, we have revised the paragraph to include a reference to 46 CFR These changes are outside the scope of the rulemaking. Note that in some cases, the additional standards these commenters suggest need not be made explicit in the regulatory text; compliance with those standards is already required by the standards that we do list.
The rule provides two separate, independent schemes for achieving protection. We did not accept this recommendation because it is outside the scope of this rulemaking. They asked us to incorporate the standards in order to provide a higher level of safety. This recommendation is outside the scope of this rulemaking.
We agree and have deleted the NPRM language of paragraph c. We agree that the correct reference is to IEEE and have revised this paragraph accordingly. We have retained the NPRM language. We agree and have changed the language accordingly.
However, we disagree with their additional comment that the reference in paragraph b 1 to Note 6 should be deleted because it requires no additional derating. We have retained the reference as Note 6 provides for additional derating of cables when the cable is double banked. We have made the requested change here and throughout subpart We have retained the exception. Section These locations, by definition, are low voltage applications.
We agree and have changed the text accordingly. The Coast Guard has a longstanding policy of not allowing any cable armor to be used as a grounding conductor. The requested change is a significant modification to our rules and is, therefore, beyond the scope of this rulemaking. The requested change is beyond the scope of this rulemaking. Also, the restrictions of 46 CFR A detailed review of this issue is discussed in the Federal Register publications of June 4, , page , and May 1, , page Prior to the publication of the existing rule, the Coast Guard conducted a complete review and revision of the regulations, bolstered by onsite observations, in order to determine the safe application of type MC cable aboard a vessel.
Continuous corrugation is already required by paragraph a of this section. We are retaining these provisions. Adoption of the standard would, in these cases, constitute substantive changes beyond the scope of this rulemaking. We are retaining the current general reference to IEEE 45 because several of its clauses are applicable. We have corrected the section so that it refers to IEEE We are retaining the NPRM language for paragraph j 2.
The recommendation is outside the scope of this rulemaking. Copies of the material are available from the sources listed in those sections. We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses based on 13 of these statutes or executive orders. This rule is not a significant regulatory action under section 3 f of Executive Order , Regulatory Planning and Review, and does not require an assessment of potential costs and benefits under section 6 a 3 of that Order.
The Office of Management and Budget has not reviewed it under that Order.
