Standards for Living Organisms in Ships' Ballast Water Discharged 
in U.S. Waters

AGENCY: Coast Guard, DHS.

ACTION: Rule; information collection approval; Correction.

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

SUMMARY: On June 13, 2012, the Coast Guard published in the Federal 
Register an announcement of effective date that announced an 
information collection approval for the Standards for Living Organisms 
in Ships' Ballast Water Discharged in U.S. Waters (BWDS) Final Rule (77 
FR 35268). The rulemaking triggered new information collection 
requirements affecting vessel owners and their potential requests for 
an extension of the compliance date if they cannot practicably comply 
with the compliance date otherwise applicable to their vessels. The 
June 13, 2012, document announced that the request to revise the 
existing collection of information to add the new request for an 
extension provision was approved by the Office of Management and Budget 
(OMB) and may now be enforced. The OMB control number is 1625-0069. The 
approval for this collection of information expires on May 31, 2015.
    In the June 13, 2012, document, the Coast Guard inadvertently 
failed to indicate that we received public submissions to the BWDS 
Final Rule (77 FR 17254). The Coast Guard is now publishing a document 
to advise the public that we received four public submissions to this 
collection of information. As the four public submissions were not 
collection of information-related, we did not revise our collection of 
information estimates. You may view copies of the public submissions 
and the Coast Guard responses to them in the BWDS docket online by 
going to http://www.regulations.gov, inserting USCG-2001-10486 in the 
``Keyword'' box, and then clicking ``Search.'' A corrected information 
collection request package has been submitted to OMB for their review. 
The current 1625-0069 approval by OMB is still effective. If OMB 
decides to amend the current 1625-0069 approval, a copy of that 
decision will be placed in the docket.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: If you have questions about this 
document, call or email Mr. John Morris, Project Manager, U.S. Coast 
Guard; telephone 202-372-1402, email environmental_standards@uscg.mil.
