Coast Guard

46 CFR Parts 2, 24, 30, 70, 90, 91, and 188

[Docket No. USCG-2011-0363]
RIN 1625-AB71


Seagoing Barges

AGENCY: Coast Guard, DHS.

ACTION: Direct final rule; correction.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The United States Coast Guard published a direct final rule in 
the Federal Register on December 14, 2011 (76 FR 77712) revising 
regulations for the inspection and certification of seagoing barges to 
align with the language of the applicable statues. That document 
inadvertently transposed the titles of two tables in our amendatory 
instructions. Additionally, the Coast Guard is republishing the vessel 
inspection tables that rule amends in their entirety, so that the 
format of the tables is consistent with current Federal Register format 
requirements.

DATES: Effective April 12, 2012.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: If you have questions on this rule, 
call or email Lieutenant Doug Tindall, United States Coast Guard; 
telephone (202) 372-1411, email Douglas.Tindall@uscg.mil. If you have 
questions on viewing the docket, call Renee V. Wright, Program Manager, 
Docket Operations, telephone (202) 366-9826.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The direct final rule published December 14, 
2011 (76 FR 77712) amends row 4, column 4 of Tables 2.01-7(a), 24.05-
1(a), 30.01-5(d), 70.05-1(a), 90.05-1(a), and 188.05-1(a) as 
republished in this correcting amendment. The Coast Guard is 
republishing the tables so that the format of the tables conforms to 
current Federal Register requirements. This correcting amendment makes 
no substantive changes to the tables.
    Additionally, this correcting amendment corrects the amendatory 
instructions of the direct final rule wherein the titles of tables 
``24.05-1(a)'' and ``30.01-5(d)'' were mistakenly transposed as 
``24.01-5(a)'' and ``30.05-1(d)'' respectively.

\7\ The terms ``passenger(s)'' and ``passenger(s)-for-hire'' are as defined in 46 U.S.C. 2101(21) (21a). On oceanographic vessels, scientific personnel
  onboard shall not be deemed to be passengers nor seamen, but for calculations of lifesaving equipment, etc., must be counted as persons.
\8\ Boilers and machinery are subject to examination on vessels over 40 feet in length.
\9\ Under 46 U.S.C. 441 an oceanographic research vessel ``* * * being employed exclusively in instruction in oceanography or limnology, or both, or
  exclusively in oceanographic research, * * *. Under 46 U.S.C. 443, ``an oceanographic research vessel shall not be deemed to be engaged in trade or
  commerce.'' If or when an oceanographic vessel engages in trade or commerce, such vessel cannot operate under its certificate of inspection as an
  oceanographic vessel, but shall be inspected and certified for the service in which engaged, and the scientific personnel aboard then become persons
  employed in the business of the vessel.
\10\ Bulk dangerous cargoes are cargoes specified in table 151.01-10(b); in table 1 of part 153, and in table 4 of part 154 of this chapter.

\9\ Under 46 U.S.C. 441 an oceanographic research vessel ``* * * being employed exclusively in instruction in oceanography or limnology, or both, or
  exclusively in oceanographic research, * * * *. Under 46 U.S.C. 443, ``an oceanographic research vessel shall not be deemed to be engaged in trade or
  commerce.'' If or when an oceanographic vessel engages in trade or commerce, such vessel cannot operate under its certificate of inspection as an
  oceanographic vessel, but shall be inspected and certified for the service in which engaged, and the scientific personnel aboard then become persons

\9\ Under 46 U.S.C. 441 an oceanographic research vessel ``* * * being employed exclusively in instruction in oceanography or limnology, or both, or
  exclusively in oceanographic research, * * *. Under 46 U.S.C. 443, ``an oceanographic research vessel shall not be deemed to be engaged in trade or
  commerce.'' If or when an oceanographic vessel engages in trade or commerce, such vessel cannot operate under its certificate of inspection as an
  oceanographic vessel, but shall be inspected and certified for the service in which engaged, and the scientific personnel aboard then become persons
  employed in the business of the vessel.

\7\ The terms ``passenger(s)'' and ``passenger(s)-for-hire'' are as defined in 46 U.S.C. 2101(21)(21a). On oceanographic vessels, scientific personnel
  onboard shall not be deemed to be passengers nor seamen, but for calculations of lifesaving equipment, etc., must be counted as persons.
\8\ Boilers and machinery are subject to examination on vessels over 40 feet in length.
\9\ Under 46 U.S.C. 441 an oceanographic research vessel ``* * * being employed exclusively in instruction in oceanography or limnology, or both, or
  exclusively in oceanographic research, * * *. Under 46 U.S.C. 443, ``an oceanographic research vessel shall not be deemed to be engaged in trade or
  commerce.'' If or when an oceanographic vessel engages in trade or commerce, such vessel cannot operate under its certificate of inspection as an
  oceanographic vessel, but shall be inspected and certified for the service in which engaged, and the scientific personnel aboard then become persons
  employed in the business of the vessel.
