                               EXPLANATION


    The Code of Federal Regulations is a codification of the general and 
permanent rules published in the Federal Register by the Executive 
departments and agencies of the Federal Government. The Code is divided 
into 50 titles which represent broad areas subject to Federal 
regulation. Each title is divided into chapters which usually bear the 
name of the issuing agency. Each chapter is further subdivided into 
parts covering specific regulatory areas.
    Each volume of the Code is revised at least once each calendar year 
and issued on a quarterly basis approximately as follows:

Title 1 through Title 16.................................as of January 1
Title 17 through Title 27..................................as of April 1
Title 28 through Title 41...................................as of July 1
Title 42 through Title 50................................as of October 1
    The appropriate revision date is printed on the cover of each 
volume.

LEGAL STATUS

    The contents of the Federal Register are required to be judicially 
noticed (44 U.S.C. 1507). The Code of Federal Regulations is prima facie 
evidence of the text of the original documents (44 U.S.C. 1510).

HOW TO USE THE CODE OF FEDERAL REGULATIONS

    The Code of Federal Regulations is kept up to date by the individual 
issues of the Federal Register. These two publications must be used 
together to determine the latest version of any given rule.
    To determine whether a Code volume has been amended since its 
revision date (in this case, July 1, 1998), consult the ``List of CFR 
Sections Affected (LSA),'' which is issued monthly, and the ``Cumulative 
List of Parts Affected,'' which appears in the Reader Aids section of 
the daily Federal Register. These two lists will identify the Federal 
Register page number of the latest amendment of any given rule.

EFFECTIVE AND EXPIRATION DATES

    Each volume of the Code contains amendments published in the Federal 
Register since the last revision of that volume of the Code. Source 
citations for the regulations are referred to by volume number and page 
number of the Federal Register and date of publication. Publication 
dates and effective dates are usually not the same and care must be 
exercised by the user in determining the actual effective date. In 
instances where the effective date is beyond the cut-off date for the 
Code a note has been inserted to reflect the future effective date. In 
those instances where a regulation published in the Federal Register 
states a date certain for expiration, an appropriate note will be 
inserted following the text.

OMB CONTROL NUMBERS

    The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1980 (Pub. L. 96-511) requires 
Federal agencies to display an OMB control number with their information 
collection request.

[[Page vi]]

Many agencies have begun publishing numerous OMB control numbers as 
amendments to existing regulations in the CFR. These OMB numbers are 
placed as close as possible to the applicable recordkeeping or reporting 
requirements.

OBSOLETE PROVISIONS

    Provisions that become obsolete before the revision date stated on 
the cover of each volume are not carried. Code users may find the text 
of provisions in effect on a given date in the past by using the 
appropriate numerical list of sections affected. For the period before 
January 1, 1986, consult either the List of CFR Sections Affected, 1949-
1963, 1964-1972, or 1973-1985, published in seven separate volumes. For 
the period beginning January 1, 1986, a ``List of CFR Sections 
Affected'' is published at the end of each CFR volume.

INCORPORATION BY REFERENCE

    What is incorporation by reference? Incorporation by reference was 
established by statute and allows Federal agencies to meet the 
requirement to publish regulations in the Federal Register by referring 
to materials already published elsewhere. For an incorporation to be 
valid, the Director of the Federal Register must approve it. The legal 
effect of incorporation by reference is that the material is treated as 
if it were published in full in the Federal Register (5 U.S.C. 552(a)). 
This material, like any other properly issued regulation, has the force 
of law.
    What is a proper incorporation by reference? The Director of the 
Federal Register will approve an incorporation by reference only when 
the requirements of 1 CFR part 51 are met. Some of the elements on which 
approval is based are:
    (a) The incorporation will substantially reduce the volume of 
material published in the Federal Register.
    (b) The matter incorporated is in fact available to the extent 
necessary to afford fairness and uniformity in the administrative 
process.
    (c) The incorporating document is drafted and submitted for 
publication in accordance with 1 CFR part 51.
    Properly approved incorporations by reference in this volume are 
listed in the Finding Aids at the end of this volume.
    What if the material incorporated by reference cannot be found? If 
you have any problem locating or obtaining a copy of material listed in 
the Finding Aids of this volume as an approved incorporation by 
reference, please contact the agency that issued the regulation 
containing that incorporation. If, after contacting the agency, you find 
the material is not available, please notify the Director of the Federal 
Register, National Archives and Records Administration, Washington DC 
20408, or call (202) 523-4534.

CFR INDEXES AND TABULAR GUIDES

    A subject index to the Code of Federal Regulations is contained in a 
separate volume, revised annually as of January 1, entitled CFR Index 
and Finding Aids. This volume contains the Parallel Table of Statutory 
Authorities and Agency Rules (Table I), and Acts Requiring Publication 
in the Federal Register (Table II). A list of CFR titles, chapters, and 
parts and an alphabetical list of agencies publishing in the CFR are 
also included in this volume.
    An index to the text of ``Title 3--The President'' is carried within 
that volume.
    The Federal Register Index is issued monthly in cumulative form. 
This index is based on a consolidation of the ``Contents'' entries in 
the daily Federal Register.

[[Page vii]]

    A List of CFR Sections Affected (LSA) is published monthly, keyed to 
the revision dates of the 50 CFR titles.

REPUBLICATION OF MATERIAL

    There are no restrictions on the republication of material appearing 
in the Code of Federal Regulations.

  --------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                                    Part

[[Page 3]]



                CHAPTER I--PANAMA CANAL REGULATIONS1



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


  1  Pursuant to Pub. L. 96-70 and a document published at 44 FR 
75306, Dec. 19, 1979, the chapter heading has been adjusted to read 
``Panama Canal Regulations.''
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

  Editorial Note: Upon entry into force on October 1, 1979, of the 
Panama Canal Treaty of 1977, the United States relinquished and Panama 
assumed plenary jurisdiction over what was the Canal Zone. Pursuant to 
the Panama Canal Act of 1979, Pub. L. 96-70, the statute implementing 
the new treaty, the Canal Zone Government was disestablished and the 
Panama Canal Company was replaced by a new United States Government 
agency, the Panama Canal Commission, which will operate the waterway 
until the termination of the treaty on December 31, 1999. Many of the 
functions performed by the two former Canal agencies will not be 
undertaken by the Panama Canal Commission.

  As a result of the Treaty and Pub. L. 96-70, the regulations published 
in Title 35, have to be rewritten in accordance with the substantially 
different authority and responsibilities which the new agency has.

  It should be noted that those regulations which have not been revised 
since October 1, 1979 must be read in light of the new definitions 
provided by section 3 of Pub. L. 96-70, which states in part as follows:


  (b) Subject to the provisions of subsection (c) of this section, for 
purposes of applying the Canal Zone Code or other laws of the United 
States and regulations issued pursuant to such Code or other laws with 
respect to transactions, occurrences, or status on or after the 
effective date of this Act--

  (1) ``Canal Zone'' shall be deemed to refer to the areas and 
installations in the Republic of Panama made available to the United 
States pursuant to the Panama Canal Treaty of 1977 and related 
agreements;

  (2) ``Canal Zone waters'' and ``waters of the Canal Zone'' shall be 
deemed to refer to ``Panama Canal waters'' and ``waters of the Panama 
Canal'', respectively;

  (3) ``Government of the Canal Zone'' or ``Canal Zone Government'' 
shall be deemed to refer to the United States of America;

  (4) ``Governor of the Canal Zone'' or ``Governor'', wherever the 
reference is to the Governor of the Canal Zone, shall be deemed to refer 
to the Panama Canal Commission;

  (5) ``Panama Canal Company'' or ``Company'' wherever the reference is 
to the Panama Canal Company, shall be deemed to refer to the Panama 
Canal Commission;

  (6) In chapter 57 of title 5 of the Canal Zone Code, ``hospitals'' and 
``Health Bureau'' shall be deemed to refer, respectively, to the 
hospitals operated by the United States in the Republic of Panama, and 
to the organizational unit operating such hospitals; and

  (7) In chapter 57 of title 5 of the Canal Zone Code, in section 4784 
of title 6 of such Code, and in section 2 of title 7 of such Code, 
``health director'' shall be deemed to refer to the senior official in 
charge of the hospitals operated by the United States in the Republic of 
Panama.

  (c) Any reference set forth in subsection (b) of this section shall 
apply except as otherwise provided in this Act or unless (1) such 
reference is inconsistent with the provisions of this Act, (2) in the 
context in which a term is used such reference is clearly not intended, 
or (3) a term refers to a time before the effective date of this Act.


  Parts 1, 5, 53, 57, 59, 63, 65, 69, 127, and 129 have been removed 
because they are inconsistent with the provisions of the Panama Canal 
Treaty of 1977 and related agreements or with Pub.

with the new statutory basis and agency organization.

depreciation to reflect the age and condition of the item at the time of

    As provided by the Act, fees payable to any agent or attorney in 
connection with services rendered in connection with a claim hereunder 
shall not exceed 10 per centum of the amount paid in settlement of such 
claim. Any person violating the provisions of the Act, as therein

[52 FR 31397, Aug. 20, 1987; 53 FR 16256, May 6, 1988, as amended at 59 
FR 26122, May 19, 1994]



Sec. 9.3  Functions.

    (a) The Panama Canal Commission, which replaced the Canal Zone 
Government and the Panama Canal Company effective October 1, 1979, is 
established in the executive branch of the United States by the Panama 
Canal Act of 1979 (Pub. L. 96-70, 93 Stat. 452) as an agency of the 
United States, for the purpose of maintaining and operating the Panama 
Canal and the facilities and appurtenances related thereto. As provided 
in section 1101 of that Act, the authority of the President with respect 
to the Commission is exercised through the Secretary of Defense.
    (b) As provided in the Panama Canal Act of 1979, the supervision of 
the Commission is vested in a Board composed of nine members, one of 
whom is the Secretary of Defense or an officer of the Department of 
Defense designated by the Secretary. Not fewer than five

[[Page 13]]

members of the Board are nationals of the United States; the remaining 
members are nationals of the Republic of Panama.
    (c) The President appoints the members of the Board. The members of 
the Board who are United States nationals are appointed by and with the 
advice and consent of the Senate. Each member of the Board holds office 
at the pleasure of the President.
    (d) The Administrator of the Commission, who is appointed by the 
President, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, holds 
office at the pleasure of the President.

water, and telephone systems; procurement and storehouse facilities; 
motor transportation services; an agency press and duplicating center;

Stat. 456, 457)



Sec. 9.4  How to request general information or publications.

    The Commission has an Office of Public Affairs which is responsible 
for providing information about the agency to members of the public and 
the press. If you are interested in general information about the 
Commission's activities, or copies of its publications, you should 
write, visit, or call this office. Address letters to: Panama Canal 
Commission, Office of Public Affairs, Unit 2300, APO AA 34011-2300 (or 
Balboa, Republic of Panama).
[46 FR 48659, Oct. 2, 1981, as amended at 52 FR 31397, Aug. 20, 1987; 53 
FR 16256, May 6, 1988; 59 FR 26122, May 19, 1994]



Sec. 9.5  The Freedom of Information Act.

    (a) The Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552) is a law which 
creates a procedure for any person to request official records from 
United States Government agencies. The rest of the rules in this subpart 
explain how you may request official records from the Panama Canal 
Commission.
    (b) The Freedom of Information Act requires every United States 
Government agency to make official records available to any person who 
requests them, unless the records that the person requests fall within 
one of more of the exceptions to availability listed in the law. For 
more details about these exceptions, see subsection (b) of section 552, 
Title 5, United States Code, available in libraries.
    (c) The Freedom of Information Act does not require an agency to 
create records or compile information that you would like to have. The 
law deals only with making existing records available.
[44 FR 75309, Dec. 19, 1979, as amended at 52 FR 31397, Aug. 20, 1987; 
53 FR 16256, May 6, 1988]



Sec. 9.6  How to make a Freedom of Information Act request.

    (a) To make a request for a record using the Freedom of Information 
Act, you must:
    (1) Write to the Panama Canal Commission, Agency Records Officer 
(Chief, Administrative Services Division), Unit 2300, APO AA 34011-2300 
(or Balboa, Republic of Panama); and
    (2) State in your letter that you are making a request under the 
Freedom of Information Act, and clearly mark the envelope ``Freedom of 
Information Act Request''. A request under 5 U.S.C. 552 which is not 
properly addressed and is not marked in this way shall not be considered 
to be received by the agency until it has actually been received by the 
Agency Records Officer.
    (3) In your letter, reasonably describe the records you are seeking. 
Be as specific in describing the records as you can. Although it is not 
required, it will be helpful if, whenever possible, you supply in your 
letter specific information regarding dates, titles, file designations, 
the office where you believe the records may be found, and other 
information which may help to identify the records.
    (b) The Panama Canal Commmission may request that you furnish 
information as to the purpose of your request. Such information is 
required to assist agency officials in categorizing your request in 
order to accurately assess fees.

require the agency to reconsider its decision; and
    (3) Tell you how to make an appeal.
    (c) If you request records or information which is in the files of 
the Commission but which originated in another Federal agency, the 
Agency Records Officer may refer your request to that agency. In that 
case, the Agency Records Officer will inform you that your request has 
been referred to the originating agency.



Sec. 9.8  How to make an appeal under the Freedom of Information Act.

    (a) If you are not satisfied with the decision of the Agency Records 
Officer, you may require the Commission to reconsider that decision. 
This is called ``making an appeal.''
    (b) To make an appeal, you must:
    (1) Write to the Panama Canal Commission, Director, Office of 
Executive Administration, Unit 2300, APO AA 34011-2300 (or Balboa, 
Republic of Panama); and

Freedom of Information Act, and clearly mark the envelope ``Freedom of 
Information Act Appeal''; and
    (3) Mail or deliver the letter of appeal within ten working days 
after you receive the letter from the Agency Records Officer.
    (c) Although it is not required, it may be helpful if you clearly 
indicate in your appeal the reasons why you disagree with the decision 
on your request and your reasons for wanting the records.
[44 FR 75309, Dec. 19, 1979, as amended at 46 FR 48659, Oct. 2, 1981; 52

1994]



Sec. 9.9  How your Freedom of Information Act appeal will be handled.

    (a) The official responsible for deciding whether to grant your 
appeal is the Director, Office of Executive Administration of the Panama 
Canal Commission. That official must make that decision and send you 
notification of it within 20 working days after receiving your appeal. 
In unusual circumstances, the Commission may extend the time for 
responding to your appeal. For details, see Sec. 9.10 of this part.
    (b) If the Director, Office of Executive Administration denies your 
appeal, in whole or in part, the letter sent to you to notify you of 
this decision must:
    (1) Tell you why the appeal is being denied;
    (2) Tell you that this denial is the Commission's final decision; 
and
    (3) Tell you that you have the right to request a U.S. District 
Court to review the denial of your appeal, as provided by 5 U.S.C. 
552(a)(4)(B), as amended.
[44 FR 75309, Dec. 19, 1979, as amended at 46 FR 48659, Oct. 2, 1981]



Sec. 9.10  How the Commission may extend the time to respond to your request or appeal.

notice signed by the Agency Records Officer. The notice will:
    (1) Tell you why it is necessary to extend the time;
    (2) Tell you how long the time has been extended; and
    (3) Tell you the date when you can expect the decision about your 
request or your appeal to be sent to you.
    (b) The Commission may extend the time for making a decision about 
your request or your appeal by a total of ten

[[Page 15]]

working days. The extension period may be split between the request and 
the appeal, but it may not exceed ten working days overall.
    (c) The unusual circumstances which may reasonably require an 
extension of time for the proper handling of your request or appeal are:
    (1) The need to search for and collect the requested records from 
field facilities or other establishments that are separate from the 
office processing the request; or
    (2) The need to search for, collect, and appropriately examine a 
voluminous quantity of separate and distinct records which are demanded 
in a single request; or
    (3) The need for consultation, which shall be conducted with all 
practicable speed, with another agency having a substantial interest in 
the determination of the request or among two or more components of the 
Commission having substantial subject matter interest in the request.



Sec. 9.11  Fees for Freedom of Information Act requests.

    (a) The following are fees charged by the Commission for document 
search and reproduction.
    (1) Search for records: $7.10 per hour of search conducted by 
clerical personnel, and $23.50 per hour of search conducted by 
supervisory or professional personnel.
    (2) Search requiring computers: $185.94 for the first two hours or 
fraction of the first two hours; $92.97 for each additional hour.
    (3) Copying: $0.13 per page for the first copy of a record. The word 
``page'' refers to a paper copy of a standard agency size which is 8\1/
2\" x 11" or 11" x 14". For additional copies, you will be charged the 
official Panama Canal Commmission tariff rate for reproduction.
    (4) Converting microfilm to paper copy: $0.13 per page for the first 
copy of a record. For additional copies, you will be charged the 
official Panama Canal Commission tariff rate for reproduction. Microfilm 
search charges will be at the clerical rate.
    (5) Duplication of tape recordings: (i) Labor costs: $10.65 per \1/
2\ hour for 40 channel tape recording; $7.30 per \1/2\ hour for basic 
tape recording; $9.35 per \1/2\ hour for video tape recording. Minimum 
charge for taping is \1/2\ hour.
    (ii) Material costs: No cost will be assessed to tapes if provided 
by requester. If agency furnishes tapes, the requester will be charged 
direct purchasing costs.
    (6) Duplication of photographs: Black and white, up to 8" x 10", 
$2.55 per print; color, up to 8" x 10", $9.20 per print.
    (7) Duplication of canal sounding and engineering charts, graphs, 
and drawings (reproducible and non-reproducible) at cost recovery rate.
    (8) Other services: If there is no specific fee listed in this 
section for a service necessary for handling your request, you will be 
charged the official agency tariff for that service. If no tariff exists 
for that service, the Agency Records Officer is authorized to charge the 
direct cost to the Commission of that service.
    (b) Review fees are chargeable only when a request is for a 
commercial use, as defined in Sec. 9.12. Review fees will be charged in 
accordance with the search fee rates set forth in Sec. 9.11(a)(1).
    (c) If the Commission estimates that search charges are likely to 
exceed $25.00, and the requester has not previously agreed to pay fees 
as high as those anticipated, the agency will notify the requester of 
the estimated amount of fees, and offer the requester the opportunity to 
revise the request.
    (d) The Panama Canal Commission may require a requester to pay fees 
in advance only if the estimated charges are likely to exceed $250.00, 
or the requester has previously failed to pay a fee in a timely fashion 
(i.e., within 30 days of the date of billing).
    (1) If the requester has a history of prompt payment, and the 
estimated charges are likely to exceed $250.00, the Commission will 
notify the requester of the estimated cost and obtain satisfactory 
assurance of full payment.
    (2) If the requester has no prior payment history, and the estimated 
charges are likely to exceed $250.00, the agency may require an advance 
payment of an amount up to the full amount of estimated charges.
    (3) If the requester has a poor payment history, the agency may 
require advance payment of the full amount of

[[Page 16]]

the estimated fees, as well as any amount currently owed, plus interest 
on the delinquent amount, before the agency begins to process a new or 
pending request from that requester.
    (4) When the agency acts under this subsection, the administrative 
time limits prescribed in Secs. 9.7(a) and 9.9(a) will begin only after 
receipt of the required fee payments.
    (e) If you wish to request a waiver or reduction of fees, you must 
do so in writing to the Chief, Administrative Services Division, Agency 
Records Officer, Panama Canal Commission, Unit 2300, APO AA 34011-2300. 
The Agency Records Officer may waive or reduce the fees if the official 
decides that providing the records you request would be in the public 
interest because it is likely to contribute significantly to public 
understanding of the operations or activities of the government, and is 
not primarily in the commercial interest of the requester. Requests for 
a waiver or reduction of fees shall be considered on a case-by-case 
basis.
    (1) In order to determine whether disclosure of the information is 
in the public interest because it is likely to contribute significantly 
to public understanding of the operations or activities of the 
government, the Agency Records Officer will consider the following four 
factors:
    (i) The subject of the request: Whether the subject of the requested 
records concerns the operations or activities of the government;
    (ii) The informative value of the information to be disclosed: 
Whether the disclosure is likely to contribute to an understanding of 
government operations or activities;
    (iii) The contribution to an understanding of the subject by the 
general public likely to result from disclosure: Whether disclosure of 
the requested information will contribute to public understanding; and
    (iv) The significance of the contribution to public understanding: 
Whether the disclosure is likely to contribute significantly to public 
understanding of government operations or activities.
    (2) In order to determine whether disclosure of the information is 
not primarily in the commercial interest of the requester, the Agency 
Records Officer will consider the following two factors:
    (i) The existence and magnitude of a commercial interest: Whether 
the requester has a commercial interest that would be furthered by the 
requested disclosure; and, if so
    (ii) The primary interest in disclosure: Whether the magnitude of 
the identified commercial interest of the requester is sufficiently 
large, in comparison with the public interest in disclosure, that 
disclosure is primarily in the commercial interest of the requester.
    (3) The Agency Records Officer will not consider waiver or reduction 
of fees for requesters (persons or organizations) from whom unpaid fees 
remain due to the Agency for another information access request.
    (4) The Agency's decision to refuse to waive or reduce fees as 
requested under this section may be appealed to the Director, Office of 
Executive Administration, Panama Canal Commission, Unit 2300, APO AA 
34011-2300. Appeals should contain as much information and documentation 
as possible to support the request for a waiver or reduction of fees. 
The requester will be notified within thirty working days from the date 
on which the Agency received the appeal.
    (f) This agency will assess interest charges on an unpaid bill 
starting on the 31st day following the day on which the bill was sent. 
Interest will be computed at the rate prescribed in Section 3717 of 
Title 31, United States Code, and will accrue from the date of the 
billing.

Sec. 9.12  Definitions.

    Commercial use refers to a request or a requester seeking 
information for a use or purpose that furthers the commercial, trade, or 
profit interests of the requester or the person on whose behalf the 
request is made.
    Duplication refers to the process of making a copy of document 
necessary to respond to a Freedom of Information Act request. Such 
copies can take the form of paper copy, microfilm, audio-visual 
materials, or machine readable

[[Page 17]]

documentation (e.g., magnetic tape or disk), among others. The copy 
provided will be in a form that is reasonably usable by the requester.
    Educational institution refers to a preschool, a public or private 
elementary or secondary school, an institution of graduate higher 
education, an institution of undergraduate higher education, an 
institution of professional education, and an institution of vocational 
education, which operates programs of scholarly research.
    Non-commercial scientific institution refers to an institution that 
is not operated on a commercial basis and which is operated solely for 
the purpose of conducting scientific research, the results of which are 
not intended to promote any particular product or industry.
    Representative of the news media refers to any person actively 
gathering news for an entity that is organized and operated to publish 
or broadcast news to the public. As used herein, the word ``news'' means

interest to the public.
    Review refers to the process of examining documents located in 
response to a request that is for a commercial use to determine whether 
any portion of any document located is permitted to be withheld. It also 
includes the time spent processing any documents for disclosure; i.e., 
doing all that is necessary to delete unreleasable portions and prepare 
documents for release. Review does not include time spent resolving 
general legal or policy issues regarding the application of exemptions.
    Search time is the time spent by the agency to identify the 
documents requested and will be charged in accordance with 
Sec. 9.11(a)(1) and (2).
[52 FR 31398, Aug. 20, 1987; 53 FR 16256, May 6, 1988]



Sec. 9.13  Classifying requests for fee purposes.

    (a) When the Panama Canal Commission receives a request for 
documents that appears to be for commercial use, fees will be assessed 
for the total search time, review time, and all duplication of the 
documents. Requestors must reasonably describe the records sought. When 
the agency has reasonable cause to doubt the stated use of the 
documents, or where the use is not clear from the request itself, the 
agency can seek additional clarification. Requesters should note that 
the Panama Canal Commission may assess fees for search and review even 
if no documents are determined to be releasable under the Freedom of 
Information Act.
    (b) Educational institution requesters will be provided the first 
100 pages of duplication without charge and will not be charged for 
search time. To be eligible for this reduction in fees, the requester 
must show that the request is being made under the auspices of a 
qualifying institution and that the records are being sought to further 
scholarly research and not for commercial use. The requester must 
reasonably describe the records sought.
    (c) Non-commercial scientific institution requesters will be 
provided the first 100 pages without charge and will not be charged for 
search time. To be eligible for this reduction in fees, the requester 
must show that the request is being made under the auspices of a 
qualifying institution and that the records are being sought to further 
scientific research and not for commercial use. The requester must 
reasonably describe the records sought.
    (d) Representatives of the news media will be provided the first 100 
pages without charge and will not be charged for search time. To be 
eligible for reduction in fees, the requester must meet the criteria 
prescribed in Sec. 9.12 and the request must not be for commercial use. 
A request for records supporting the news dissemination function of the 
requester will not be considered to be a request that is for a 
commercial use. The requester must reasonably describe the records 
sought.
    (e) For all other requesters who do not fit into the above 
categories, fees will be charged which recover the full reasonable 
direct cost of searching for and reproducing records that are responsive 
to the request, except that the first 100 pages of reproduction and the 
first two hours of search time will be furnished without charge. The 
requester must reasonably describe the records sought.

[[Page 18]]

    (f) Those requesters searching for records about themselves will be 
treated under the Privacy Act of 1974 and will only be charged for 
reproduction costs.
    (g) A requester may not file multiple requests solely in order to 
avoid payment of fees. When the agency reasonably believes that a 
requester is attempting to separate a request into a series of requests 
for the purpose of evading the assessment of fees, the agency may 
aggregate any such requests and charge accordingly.
[52 FR 31398, Aug. 20, 1987; 53 FR 16256, May 6, 1988]



Sec. 9.14  Current index.

    (a) The Commission maintains and will make available for public 
inspection and copying a current index of the agency's opinions, policy 
statements, administrative staff manuals, and instructions to staff that 
affect a member of the public.
    (b) The Commission has decided that it is not necessary to publish 
this index.
    (c) On request, the Commission will provide copies of this index to 
members of the public. The charges for the copies will be no greater 
than those set out in Sec. 9.11.

Sec. 9.15  Annual report.

    On or before March 1 of each calendar year, the Panama Canal 
Commission sends to both Houses of Congress a report of its activities 
in connection with the Freedom of Information Act during the preceding 
calendar year. The Freedom of Information Act requires each agency to 
make this report and to include in it such information as: how many 
requests were denied and why; how many denials were appealed and the 
result of those appeals; the name and title of each official who denied 
a request; and other information showing how the agency administered the 
Freedom of Information Act during the period covered by the report.

Sec. 9.16  Predisclosure notification procedures for confidential commercial information.

    (a) In general. Confidential commercial information provided to the 
Panama Canal Commission by a submitter shall not be disclosed pursuant 
to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request except in accordance with 
this section. The following definitions apply:
    (1) Confidential commercial information means records provided to 
the Commission by a submitter that arguably contain material exempt from 
release under Exemption 4 of the Freedom of Information Act, 5 U.S.C. 
552(b)(4), because disclosure could reasonably be expected to cause 
substantial competitive harm.
    (2) Submitter means any person or entity who provides confidential 
commercial information to the Commission. The term ``submitter'' 
includes, but is not limited to, corporations, state governments, and 
foreign governments.
    (b) Notice to submitters. The Panama Canal Commission shall provide 
a submitter with prompt notice of receipt of a Freedom of Information 
Act request encompassing its confidential commercial information 
whenever required in accordance with paragraph (c) of this section, and 
except as provided in paragraph (g) of this section. The written notice 
shall either describe the exact nature of the information requested or 
provide copies of the records or portions of records containing the 
requested information.
    (c) When notice is required. (1) For confidential commercial 
information submitted prior to January 1, 1988, the Panama Canal 
Commission shall provide a submitter with notice of receipt of a FOIA 
request whenever:
    (i) the records are less than 10 years old and the information has 
been designated by the submitter as confidential commercial information;
    (ii) The Panama Canal Commission has reason to believe that 
disclosure of the information could reasonably result in commercial or 
financial harm to the submitter; or
    (iii) The information is subject to the prior express commitment of 
confidentiality given by the Commission to the submitter.

[[Page 19]]

    (2) For confidential commercial information submitted on or after 
January 1, 1988, the Commission shall provide a submitter with notice of 
receipt of a FOIA request whenever:
    (i) The submitter has in good faith designated the information as 
commercially or financially sensitive; or
    (ii) The Commission has reason to believe that disclosure of the 
information could reasonably result in commercial or financial harm to 
the submitter.
    (3) Notice of a request for confidential commercial information 
falling within paragraph (c)(2)(i) of this section shall be required for 
a period of not more than ten years after the date of submission unless 
the submitter requests, and provides acceptable justification for, a 
specific notice period of greater duration.
    (4) Whenever possible, the submitter's claim of confidentiality 
shall be supported by a statement or certification by an officer or 
authorized representative of the company that the information in 
question is in fact confidential commercial or financial information and 
that the information has not been disclosed to the public.
    (5) When notice is given to a submitter under this section, the 
Commission shall at the same time provide written notice to the 
requester that it is affording the submitter a reasonable period of time 
within which to object to disclosure and that, therefore, there will be 
a delay in responding to the request because of the overseas location of 
the agency and the time requirements to obtain responses from the 
submitters.
    (d) Opportunity to object to disclosure. (1) The notice required by 
paragraph (b) of this section shall afford a submitter ten (10) working 
days within which to provide the Commission with a detailed statement of 
any objection to disclosure. Such statement must specify all grounds for 
withholding information under any exemption of the Freedom of 
Information Act and, in the case of Exemption 4, must demonstrate why 
the information is contended to be a trade secret or commercial or 
financial information which is considered privileged or confidential and 
capable of causing competitive damage if disclosed. Information provided 
by a submitter pursuant to this paragraph may itself be subject to 
disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act.
    (e) Notice of intent to disclose. The Commission will carefully 
consider the submitter's objections to release prior to determining 
whether or not to disclose the information. Whenever the Commission 
decides to disclose information over the objection of the submitter, the 
Commission will forward a written notice to the submitter which shall 
include:
    (1) A statement of the reasons for which the submitter's disclosure 
objections were not sustained;
    (2) A description of the confidential commercial information to be 
disclosed; and,
    (3) A specific disclosure date, which shall be ten (10) working days 
after the notice of the final decision to release the requested 
information has been mailed to the submitter.
    (4) When notice is given to a submitter under this section, the 
Commission will notify the requester that such notice has been given to 
the submitter and the proposed date for disclosure.
    (f) Notice of lawsuit. (1) Whenever a requester brings legal action 
seeking to compel disclosure of information covered by paragraph (c) of 
this section, the Commission shall promptly notify the submitter.
    (2) Whenever a submitter brings legal action seeking to prevent 
disclosure of information covered by paragraph (c) of this section, the 
Commission shall notify the requester.
    (g) Exception to notice requirement. The notice requirements of 
paragraph (c) of this section shall not apply if:
    (1) The Panama Canal Commission determines that the information 
should not be disclosed;
    (2) The information has been published or otherwise officially made 
available to the public;
    (3) Disclosure of the information is required by law (other than 5 
U.S.C. 552); or
    (4) The information was acquired in the course of a lawful 
investigation of a possible violation of criminal law.

    As used in this subpart:
    Live birth means the birth of a child who shows evidence of life 
after the child is entirely outside the mother.
    Stillbirth means a birth after 20 weeks of gestation which is not a 
live birth.
    Physician means a person legally authorized to practice medicine 
before October 1, 1979, in the area then known as the Canal Zone.
    Vital statistics includes the registration, preparation, 
transcription and preservation of data pertaining to marriages, births,

thereto.
    Vital Statistics Unit means the organizational unit charged by the 
Administrator of the Panama Canal Commission with the function of vital 
statistics.



Sec. 9.32  Administration.

    The Vital Statistics Unit shall administer this subpart, under the 
supervision of the Administrator or his designee.



Sec. 9.33  Functions of the Vital Statistics Unit.

    The Vital Statistics Unit is the keeper of the vital statistics 
records of the Canal Zone Government. Some of the functions previously 
performed by that unit were discontinued on October 1, 1979, when the 
Canal Zone and its civil government ceased to exist. The Vital 
Statistics Unit now performs the residual functions of recordkeeping; 
i.e., it is limited to performing the following:
    (a) Maintaining all vital statistics records of the Canal Zone 
Government.
    (b) Performing the vital statistics functions as defined in 
Sec. 9.31 of this part for those events which occurred in the Canal Zone 
before October 1, 1979, and which were not previously registered in that 
unit. This includes the delayed registration of a birth that occurred 
prior to October 1, 1979.
    (c) The alteration of records which are filed in that unit.
    (d) The issuance of copies of documents filed in that unit.
(Panama Canal Treaty of 1977 and related agreements and Pub. L. 96-70, 
93 Stat. 452)



Sec. 9.34  Supplementary certificate upon adoption.

    Upon receipt of a certified copy of an order or decree of adoption, 
the Vital Statistics Unit shall prepare a supplementary certificate in 
the new name of the adopted person and shall seal and file the original 
certificate of birth with such certified copy attached thereto. The 
sealed documents may be opened only upon the demand of the adopted 
person, if of legal age, or by an order of court. Upon receipt of a 
certified copy of a court order of annulment of the adoption, the 
original certificate shall be restored to its original place in the 
file.



Sec. 9.35  New birth certificate upon legitimation.

    In cases of legitimation the Vital Statistics Unit, upon receipt of 
proof thereof, shall prepare a new certificate of birth in the new name 
of the legitimated child. The evidence upon which the new certificate is 
made and the original certificate shall be sealed and filed and may be 
opened only upon the demand of the person involved, if of legal age, or 
by an order of court.

    Cross Reference: Legitimation of child, see 8 P.C.C. 335, 387, 76A 
Stat. 689, 691. See also 7 P.C.C. 576, 76A Stat. 571.



Sec. 9.36  Delayed filing of birth certificate.

    (a) When a live birth occurred in the Canal Zone (prior to October 
1, 1979), a certificate of live birth should have been filed with the 
Vital Statistics Unit within five days after the birth by the physician, 
midwife, or other legally authorized person in attendance at the birth 
or, if the birth was not so attended, by one of the parents. If a 
certificate of live birth in the Canal Zone was not filed during that 
time, it may still be possible to file a delayed certificate of birth by 
following the procedure set forth in paragraph (b) of this section.
    (b) A delayed certificate of live birth may be filed upon the 
submission to, and receipt by, the Vital Statistics Unit of such 
evidence, in the form of affidavits or otherwise, as the Vital 
Statistics Unit deems sufficient to establish satisfactorily the truth 
of the facts alleged in support of the request

[[Page 21]]

for delayed filing. Certificates accepted more than six months after the 
time prescribed for filing in paragraph (a) of this section shall 
contain the date of the delayed filing and shall be marked ``delayed.'' 
A summary statement of the evidence submitted in support of the 
acceptance for delayed filing shall be endorsed on the certificate. Such 
evidence shall be kept in a special permanent file.



Sec. 9.37  Altered certificates.

    Certificates of marriage, birth, stillbirth, or death filed in the 
Vital Statistics Unit may be altered upon the submission to, and receipt 
by, the Vital Statistics Unit of such evidence, in the form of 
affidavits or otherwise, as that unit deems sufficient to establish 
satisfactorily the truth of the facts alleged in support of the request 
for alteration. Certificates which are altered after being filed shall 
contain the date of the alteration and shall be marked ``altered.'' A 
summary statement of the evidence submitted in support of the acceptance 
for alteration shall be endorsed on the certificate. Such evidence shall 
be kept in a special permanent file.



Sec. 9.38  Certified copies of records.

    Subject to the restrictions contained in Sec. 9.39, a certified copy 
of a certificate on file or any part thereof shall be furnished to any 
applicant upon request. The person designated by the Administrator or by 
the Administrator's designee to act as Vital Statistics Clerk shall be 
the person to certify copies of such certificates or parts thereof. 
Charges shall be made for certified copies of vital statistics records 
at the rate prescribed in the official Panama Canal Commission tariff.



Sec. 9.39  Disclosure of records.

    Inspection of a vital statistics record is not permitted, and a 
certified copy of a certificate or part thereof may not be issued, 
unless the Vital Statistics Unit is satisfied that the applicant has a 
direct and legitimate interest in the matter recorded or that the 
information therein contained is necessary for the determination of 
personal or property rights.

Sec. 10.1  Purpose of this part.

    The purpose of this part is to establish Panama Canal Commission 
policies and procedures for implementing the Privacy Act of 1974 (Pub. 
L. 93-579), and particularly the provisions of 5 U.S.C. 552a.



Sec. 10.2  The Privacy Act of 1974.

    The Privacy Act of 1974 (referred to in this part as ``the Privacy 
Act'') is a law which provides safeguards against the invasion of an 
individual's personal privacy. The Privacy Act creates a procedure for 
an individual to request access to or amendment of a record about 
himself or herself that is maintained

[[Page 22]]

by an agency of the United States Government. It also places certain 
restrictions on the disclosure of records containing information about 
an individual to other persons. The rest of the rules in this part:
    (a) Explain how you may request access to or amendment of records 
about yourself that are maintained by the Panama Canal Commission 
(referred to in this part as ``the Commission'' or ``the agency'');
    (b) Explain the conditions under which the Commission may disclose 
information about an individual to others without the individual's 
consent; and
    (c) List the systems of records maintained by the Commission which 
are exempt from certain provisions of the Privacy Act, including the 
provisions for access and amendment.



Sec. 10.3  Definitions.

    (a) All terms used in this part which are defined in the Privacy Act 
(5 U.S.C. 552a(a)) shall have the same meanings as they do in that Act.
    (b) Agency Records Officer means the Chief, Administrative Services 
Division, Panama Canal Commission.
    (c) Director of Executive Administration means the Director, Office 
of Executive Administration of the Panama Canal Commission.
    (d) System manager means the official designated in the most recent 
Notice of Systems of Records published in the Federal Register, as 
having responsibility for a given system of records.
[44 FR 75312, Dec. 19, 1979, as amended at 46 FR 48659, Oct. 2, 1981]



Sec. 10.4  When this part applies.

    (a) This part applies only to information about individuals that is 
maintained by the Panama Canal Commission in a system of records which 
has been described in a notice published in the Federal Register. This 
means that these regulations apply only to information about an 
individual that can be retrieved from a group of records by the 
individual's name or other personal identifier (such as an employee 
identification number).
    (b) Where another agency (such as the Office of Personnel 
Management) has published a notice describing a system of records that 
is partially under the control of the Panama Canal Commission, the 
Privacy Act regulations of that agency take precedence over the 
regulations in this part.



Sec. 10.5  How to make a Privacy Act request.

    (a) You may find it helpful to review the descriptions of Commission 
systems of records, as published in the Federal Register, before you 
make a request. You may review these in the annual compilation of 
``Privacy Act Issuances,'' available at libraries, or, upon request, at 
the Records Management Branch, Administration Building, Balboa Heights, 
Republic of Panama.
    (b) To find out whether a particular system of records contains 
information about you, or to request access to records about yourself, 
you must:
    (1) Write or visit the system manager or the Agency Records Officer. 
The title and address of the system manager are given in the Notice of 
System of Records published in the Federal Register. The office of the 
Agency Records Officer is located in the Administration Building, Balboa 
Heights, Republic of Panama, and that official's mailing address is: 
Panama Canal Commission, Agency Records Officer, Unit 2300, APO AA 
34011-2300 (or Balboa, Republic of Panama).
    (2) Reasonably identify the system of records or the type of 
information, or records, you are interested in. Be as specific as you 
can. If you do not know which system of records is involved, it will be 
helpful if you identify the office where you believe the records may be 
located.
    (3) Adequately identify yourself in accordance with the requirements 
contained in Sec. 10.6 of this part.
    (c) If you make your request in writing, state in your letter that 
you are making a request under the Privacy Act and clearly mark the 
envelope with the words ``Privacy Act Request.'' A request under 5 
U.S.C. 552a which is not properly addressed and is not marked in this 
way shall not be considered to have been received by the agency until it 
has actually been received

[[Page 23]]

by the system manager or the Agency Records Officer.
[44 FR 75312, Dec. 19, 1979, as amended at 59 FR 26123, May 19, 1994]



Sec. 10.6  How to identify yourself.

    (a) If you make your request in person, or if you wish to review 
your records in person, you must identify yourself to the system manager 
or the Agency Records Officer (or to a person designated by one of those 
officials) by showing at least one identification document containing 
your picture (for example, employee identification card, driver's 
license, passport), or at least two identification documents containing 
your signature, or other identification acceptable to the official 
concerned.
    (b) If you make your request in writing, you must supply information 
that will help to verify your identity (for example, signature, employee 
identification number, date and place of birth), and you may also be 
required to provide the certificate of a notary public or other official 
authorized to administer oaths.
    (c) Whether making your request in person or in writing, if you 
cannot identify yourself to the satisfaction of the system manager or 
the Agency Records Officer (or the person designated by one of those 
officials), you may be asked to make and sign a written statement 
asserting your identity and indicating that you understand that 
knowingly and willfully requesting or obtaining access to any record 
about another individual under false pretenses is a misdemeanor 
punishable by a fine of up to $5,000 (5 U.S.C. 552a(i)(3)).



Sec. 10.7  How your Privacy Act request will be handled.

    (a) The system manager or the Agency Records Officer will 
acknowledge receipt of your request within ten working days. At the same 
time, or as soon as possible after acknowledging receipt, that official 
will:
    (1) Tell you that a record about you is maintained in the system of 
records you identified and tell how you may review it, or get a copy; or
    (2) Tell you that no record about you is maintained in the system of 
records you identified; or
    (3) Tell you that your inquiry cannot be answered or your request 
cannot or will not be granted because you have not adequately identified 
yourself or the system of records; because the system of records in 
question is exempt from the access provisions of the Privacy Act; or 
because the record or system of records in question is not under the 
control of the Commission.
    (b) When the system manager or the Agency Records Officer makes a 
decision to grant you access to the records you requested, you normally 
may see the records or get copies of them right away. If, for any 
reason, the records cannot be provided immediately, that official will 
arrange with you a mutually acceptable time and place for you to review 
and copy the records. If that official cannot make the records available 
to you within 30 working days of receipt of your request, that official 
will advise you in writing of the reason for the delay.



Sec. 10.8  When, where, and under what conditions you may review the records.

    (a) If you want to review your records in person, you will normally 
be required to go during regular working hours to the location specified 
in the Notice of the System of Records or to the office of the Agency 
Records Officer, in the administration Building, Balboa Heights, 
Republic of Panama. If you cannot go in person during regular working 
hours, you should telephone or write the system manager or the Agency 
Records Officer so that appropriate arrangements can be made for you to 
review the records.
    (b) You must identify yourself to the system manager or the Agency 
Records Officer (or to a person designated by one of those officials) in 
accordance with the requirements contained in Sec. 10.6 of this part.
    (c) If you have been told that you may review your records in 
person, you may, upon your request, be accompanied by a person of your 
choosing. You will however, have to provide the system manager with a 
written signed statement authorizing disclosure of the

[[Page 24]]

records about you to that person, and authorizing discussion of your 
records in the presence of that person. 
    (d) You may be shown a copy of a record rather than the original 
record itself when the record is not maintained at, or cannot be 
transferred to, a location which is accessible to you. In that event, 
you will be charged for the copies only if you choose to retain them. If 
copies are made at your request, the agency will charge you the cost of 
making the copies, as stated in Sec. 10.11 of this part.
    (e) No one shall be allowed to inspect original agency records 
except under the immediate supervision of the system manager, or the 
Agency Records Officer, or a person designated by one of those 
officials.



Sec. 10.9  Special procedures for medical records.

    (a) If you request medical records about yourself, including 
psychiatric and psychological records, the records will be made 
available to you only after the Director of Health and Safety, or that 
official's designee, determines that release of the records would not be 
likely to have an adverse effect on you. If they are not made available 
to you, upon your written request the medical records which are not 
otherwise exempt from disclosure may be reviewed by a licensed medical 
practitioner designated by you.
    (b) School records of a psychological nature may be shown to the 
student who is the subject of the records or to the parent or guardian 
of the student only if the Director of Health and Safety, or that 
official's designee, determines that the release would not be likely to 
have an adverse effect on the individual who is the subject of the 
records.



Sec. 10.10  How to request review of a system manager's denial of access.

    (a) If the system manager denies your request for records, in whole 
or in part, you may ask the Agency Records Officer to review that 
decision. The denial is not considered a final agency decision unless it 
has been reviewed and confirmed in writing by the Agency Records 
Officer.
    (b) To request review of a system manager's denial, you must:
    (1) Write to the Panama Canal Commission, Agency Records Officer, 
Unit 2300, APO AA 34011-2300 (or Balboa, Republic of Panama); and
    (2) State in your letter that you are requesting review of the 
system manager's denial and clearly mark the envelope ``Privacy Act 
Request for Review''; and
    (3) Mail or deliver the request for review within ten working days 
after you receive the system manager's denial.
    (c) Although it is not required, it may be helpful if you state in 
your request for review the reasons why you disagree with the decision 
on your request for access and your reasons for wanting the records.
[44 FR 75312, Dec. 19, 1979, as amended at 59 FR 26123, May 19, 1994]



Sec. 10.11  Fees for Privacy Act requests.

    (a) The fees for copies of records made at your request under this 
section will be the same as the fees provided in Sec. 9.11(a) (3), (4), 
(5), (6), (7); (c); and (e) of this title for copies of materials 
provided under the Freedom of Information Act.
    (b) If your request for copies of records or portions of records is 
expected to involve fees of more than $50, the Commission will not treat 
your request as having been received until:
    (1) The Commission has sent you a written notification of the 
estimated fees; and
    (2) You agree in writing to pay at least the estimated fees; and
    (3) You pay part of the estimated fees in advance, if the agency 
requires such a deposit before it will begin to copy the records you 
have requested.



Sec. 10.12  How to request amendment of your record under the Privacy Act.

    After you have reviewed your record, you may ask the Commission to 
correct or amend any portion of the record that you believe is not 
accurate, timely, relevant, or complete. To make a request for 
amendment, you must:
    (a) Write to the Panama Canal Commission, Agency Records Officer, 
Unit 2300, APO AA 34011-2300 (or Balboa, Republic of Panama).

[[Page 25]]

    (b) State in your letter that you are requesting amendment of a 
record under the Privacy Act, and clearly mark the envelope ``Privacy 
Act Request for Amendment.'' A request for amendment of a record under 5 
U.S.C. 552a which is not properly addressed and is not marked in this 
way shall not be considered to be received by the Commission until it 
has actually been received by the Agency Records Officer.
    (c) In your letter, identify the system of records involved, if you 
can, and identify the particular record or portion of the record you 
wish to have corrected or amended. If possible, attach a copy of the 
record in question.
    (d) Explain in your letter why you believe the record or portion of 
the record is not accurate, timely, relevant, or complete, and provide 
any evidence available to support your request.
    (e) Include in your letter any other information that may be 
necessary for proper processing of your request.
[44 FR 75312, Dec. 19, 1979, as amended at 59 FR 26123, May 19, 1994]



Sec. 10.13  How your Privacy Act request for amendment will be handled.

    (a) The Agency Records Officer (or that official's designee) will 
decide whether your request for amendment of a record should be granted. 
That official (or the designee) will acknowledge receipt of your request 
within ten working days and will either notify you of the decision or 
tell you when you can expect to have the decision. If a decision cannot 
be made within 30 working days of the receipt of your request, the 
Agency Records Officer (or the designee) will advise you in writing of 
the circumstances causing the delay.
    (b) If your request for amendment is granted, in whole or in part:
    (1) The Agency Records Officer (or that official's designee) will 
notify you of this decision;
    (2) The system manager will promptly correct the record; and
    (3) Where an accounting of disclosures has been maintained, the 
system manager will advise all previous recipients of the record that 
the correction has been made.
    (c) If your request for amendment is denied, in whole or in part, 
the Agency Records Officer (or that official's designee) will notify you 
of this decision and will:
    (1) Tell you why the request is being denied;
    (2) Tell you that you have the right to request further review by 
appealing the decision; and
    (3) Tell you how to make an appeal.



Sec. 10.14  How to appeal a refusal to amend a record under the Privacy Act.

    (a) If the Agency Records Officer (or that official's designee) has 
denied your request to amend a record, you may request the Executive 
Secretary to review that decision. This is called ``making an appeal.''
    (b) To make an appeal, you must:
    (1) Write to the Panama Canal Commission, Director, Office of 
Executive Administration, Unit 2300, APO AA 34011-2300 (or Balboa, 
Republic of Panama); and
    (2) State in your letter that you are appealing a denial of a 
request for amendment under the Privacy Act, and clearly mark the 
envelope ``Privacy Act Appeal''; and
    (3) Mail or deliver the letter of appeal within ten working days 
after you receive the initial agency denial.
[44 FR 75312, Dec. 19, 1979, as amended at 46 FR 48659, Oct. 2, 1981; 59 
FR 26123, May 19, 1994]



Sec. 10.15  How your Privacy Act appeal will be handled.

    (a) The official responsible for deciding whether to grant your 
appeal is the Director of Executive Administration of the Panama Canal 
Commission. The Director of Executive Administration will review the 
refusal to amend your record and will advise you of his decision within 
30 working days or receipt of your appeal.
    (b) If the Director of Executive Administration grants your appeal, 
in whole or in part:
    (1) That official will notify you of the decision;
    (2) The system manager will promptly correct the record; and
    (3) Where an accounting of disclosures has been maintained, the 
system

[[Page 26]]

manager will advise all previous recipients of the record that the 
correction has been made.
    (c) If the Director of Executive Administration denies your appeal, 
in whole or in part, the letter sent to notify you of this decision 
must:
    (1) Tell you why the appeal is being denied;
    (2) Tell you that this denial of your appeal is a final agency 
decision;
    (3) Tell you that you have the right to file a concise statement of 
your reasons for disagreeing with the decision of the agency; and
    (4) Tell you that you have the right to request a U.S. District 
Court to review this denial of your appeal, as provided by 5 U.S.C. 
552a(g).
    (d) The Administrator of the Panama Canal Commission may extend the 
30-working-day period specified in paragraph (a) of this section for 
good cause shown. In that case, the Agency Records Officer will notify 
you in writing of the reason for the delay and will tell you when you 
can expect a decision on your appeal.
    (e) If you choose to file a concise statement of your reasons for 
disagreeing with the agency's refusal to amend your record:
    (1) The system manager shall cause a notation to be made on the 
disputed portion of the record;
    (2) Copies of your statement of disagreement will be provided to 
anyone to whom the disputed record is subsequently disclosed and (to the 
extent that an accounting of disclosures has been maintained) to any 
previous recipients of the disputed record; and
    (3) The Commission may, at its discretion, make a brief summary of 
its reasons for not amending the record and may provide this summary, 
along with your statement of disagreement, to previous or subsequent 
recipients of the disputed record.
[44 FR 75312, Dec. 19, 1979, as amended at 46 FR 48659, Oct. 2, 1981]



Sec. 10.16  Rights of parents and legal guardians.

    The parent of legal guardian of a minor or the legal guardian of an 
individual who has been declared incompetent may request access to, or 
amendment of, a record on behalf of that individual. To do so, a parent 
will be required to show a certified or authenticated copy of the 
minor's birth certificate, and a legal guardian will be required to show 
a certified or authenticated copy of the court order establishing 
guardianship. In some cases, the parent or legal guardian of a minor may 
be asked to provide evidence that the minor is in the parent's or 
guardian's custody, that the minor has consented to disclosure of the 
information to the parent or guardian, or that the parent or guardian 
has authority to act on the minor's behalf.



Sec. 10.17  Conditions under which the Commission may disclose an individual's record to other persons.

    (a) The Commission shall not disclose information about an 
individual that is contained in one of its systems of records to any 
person or to another agency, except by written request of, or with the 
prior written consent of, the individual who is the subject of the 
record, unless the disclosure is authorized by paragraph (b) of this 
section or is required by other applicable law.
    (b) Under 5 U.S.C. 552a, the Commission may disclose information 
contained in its systems of records, without the consent of the 
individual who is the subject of the record, if the disclosure of the 
information, or record, would be:
    (1) To the parent or legal guardian of any minor, or to the legal 
guardian of any individual who has been declared to be incompetent by a 
court of competent jurisdiction, where such person is acting on the 
individual's behalf (5 U.S.C. 552a(h));
    (2) To those officers and employees of the Commission who have a 
need for the information in the performance of their duties (5 U.S.C. 
552a(b)(1));
    (3) Required under 5 U.S.C. 552, the Freedom of Information Act (5 
U.S.C. 552a(b)(2));
    (4) For a routine use as defined in 5 U.S.C. 552a(a)(7) and as 
described for all systems of records in Appendix A of this part and for 
specific systems of records in the Notice of Systems of Records 
published in the Federal Register (5 U.S.C. 552a(b)(3));
    (5) To the Bureau of the Census for purposes of planning or carrying 
out a

[[Page 27]]

census or survey or related activity under the provisions of Title 13, 
U.S. Code (5 U.S.C. 552a(b)(4));
    (6) To a recipient who has provided the Commission with advance 
adequate written assurance that the record will be used solely as a 
statistical research or reporting record, and the record is to be 
transferred in a form that is not individually identifiable (5 U.S.C. 
552a(b)(5));
    (7) To the National Archives of the United States as a record which 
has sufficient historical or other value to warrant its continued 
preservation by the United States Government, or for evaluation by the 
Administrator of General Services or that official's designee to 
determine whether the record has such value (5 U.S.C. 552a(b)(6));
    (8) To another agency or to an instrumentality of any governmental 
jurisdiction within or under the control of the United States for a 
civil or criminal law enforcement activity if the activity is authorized 
by law, and if the head of the agency or instrumentality has made a 
written request to the Commission specifying the particular portion 
desired and the law enforcement activity for which the record is sought 
(5 U.S.C. 552a(b)(7));
    (9) To a person pursuant to a showing of compelling circumstances 
affecting the health or safety of an individual, if upon such disclosure 
notification is transmitted to the last known address of such individual 
(5 U.S.C. 552a(b)(8));
    (10) To either House of Congress, or, to the extent of matter within 
its jurisdiction, any committee or subcommittee thereof, any joint 
committee of Congress or subcommittee of any such joint committee (5 
U.S.C. 552a(b)(9));
    (11) To the Comptroller General, or any of his authorized 
representatives, in the course of the performance of the duties of the 
General Accounting Office (5 U.S.C. 552a(b)(10)); or
    (12) Pursuant to the order of a court of competent jurisdiction (5 
U.S.C. 552a(b)(11)).



Sec. 10.18  Accounting of certain disclosures.

    (a) The system manager or his designee shall keep an accurate 
accounting of each disclosure of personal information about an 
individual from a system of records under his control which is made in 
accordance with Sec. 10.17(b) of this part, except if that disclosure is 
to officers and employees of the Commission (Sec. 10.17(b)(2)) or is 
required under the Freedom of Information Act (Sec. 10.17(b)(3)).
    (b) This accounting of disclosure shall include:
    (1) The date, nature, and purpose of each such disclosure; and
    (2) The name and address of the person or agency to whom the 
disclosure is made.
    (c) The system manager shall retain this accounting of disclosure 
for at least five years after the disclosure or for the life of the 
record, whichever is longer.
    (d) The Commission shall make the accounting of disclosure available 
to the individual named in the record, at that individual's request, 
except when the disclosure was made under Sec. 10.17(b)(8) of this part 
or when the record in question is exempt from the access provisions of 
the Privacy Act under Secs. 10.21 and 10.22 of this part. An individual 
may request access to the accounting of disclosure by the procedure for 
requesting access to records that is explained in Secs. 10.5 through 
10.10 of this part.



Sec. 10.19  Records about deceased persons.

    A record about a deceased person is not covered by the rules in this 
part, except to the extent that the deceased person's record contains 
information about a living individual. In disclosing information about a 
deceased person, the Commission will make every effort to avoid any 
infringement of the privacy rights of a living individual.



Sec. 10.20  Penalties for noncompliance with the Act.

    Subsections (g) and (i) of 5 U.S.C. 552a provide civil remedies and 
criminal penalties for noncompliance with the provisions of the Privacy 
Act of 1974 (Pub. L. 93-579) or regulations implementing that Act. In 
addition, adverse or disciplinary action may be taken against any 
officer or employee who willfully or negligently fails to comply with 
the requirements of the

[[Page 28]]

Privacy Act or the regulations in this part.



Sec. 10.21  General exemptions.

    (a) The following systems of records are eligible for exemption 
under 5 U.S.C. 552a(j)(2) because each system is maintained by a 
component of the agency, or subcomponent, which performs as its 
principal function the enforcement of criminal laws, and which contains 
investigatory material compiled for criminal law enforcement purposes. 
Accordingly, these systems are exempt from the following sections of 
552a of 5 U.S.C.: (c) (3) and (4); (d); (e) (1), (2) and (3); (e)(4) (G) 
and (H); (e) (5); (e)(8); (f); (g); and (h).
    (1) PCC/GSCP-2, Canal Protection Division Incident Report Files;
    (2) PCC/OIG-1, Investigative Files of the Office of Inspector 
General;
    (3) PCC/OIG-2, Allegation/Complaint Files of the Office of Inspector 
General;
    (4) PCC/OIG-3, Cash Audit Files.
    (b) The systems of records listed below, although no longer actively 
in use, continue to be subject to general exemption pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 
552a(j)(2) because they were compiled by a component, or subcomponent, 
of the agency which performed as its principal function the enforcement 
of criminal laws, and which contain investigatory material compiled for 
criminal law enforcement purposes. Accordingly, the following systems of 
records are exempt from subsections (c)(3) and (4); (d); (e)(1), (2) and 
(3); (e)(4) (G) and (H); (e)(5); (e)(8); (f); (g); and (h) of 5 U.S.C. 
552a:
    (1) PCC/AEPR-1, Probation and Parole Unit Child Custody Reports;
    (2) PCC/AEPR-2, Presentence and Preparole Investigation Reports;
    (3) PCC/AEPR-3, Probation and Parole Unit Statistical File;
    (4) PCC/GSPL-1, Law Enforcement Case Report File;
    (5) PCC/GSPL-2, Police Headquarters Confidential File;
    (6) PCC/GSPL-3, Detective Confidential Files;
    (7) PCC/GSPL-4, Convict Files;
    (8) PCC/GSPL-6, Police Photo Files;
    (9) PCC/GSPL-7, Fingerprint File;
    (10) PCC/GSPL-10, Master Name File;
    (c) Exemptions from the particular subsections are justified for the 
following reasons:
    (1) From (c)(3) because release of an accounting of disclosures to 
an individual who is the subject of an investigation could reveal the 
nature and scope of the investigation and could result in the altering 
or destruction of evidence, improper influencing of witnesses and other 
evasive action that could impede or compromise the investigation.
    (2) From (c)(4) because this subsection is inapplicable to the 
extent that an exemption is being claimed for subsection (d).
    (3) From subsection (d) because access to the records contained in 
these systems would inform the subject of a criminal or civil 
investigation, matter or case of the existence of such, and provide the 
subject with information that might enable him or her to avoid 
detection, apprehension or legal obligations, and present a serious 
impediment to law enforcement and other civil remedies. Amendment of the 
records would impose an impossible administrative burden by requiring 
investigations to be continuously reinvestigated.
    (4) From subsection (e)(1) because it is often impossible to 
determine relevance or necessity of information in the early stages of 
an investigation. The value of such information is a question of 
judgment and timing; what appears relevant and necessary when collected 
may ultimately be evaluated and viewed as irrelevant and unnecessary to 
an investigation. In addition, information may be obtained concerning 
the violation of laws other than those within the scope of its 
jurisdiction. In the interest of effective law enforcement, information 
should be retained because it may aid in establishing patterns of 
unlawful activity and provide leads for other law enforcement agencies. 
Further, in obtaining evidence during an investigation, information may 
be provided which relates to matters incidental to the main purpose of 
the investigation but which may be pertinent to the investigative 
jurisdiction of another agency. Such information cannot readily be 
identified.

[[Page 29]]

    (5) From subsection (e)(2) because in a law enforcement 
investigation it is usually counterproductive to collect information to 
the greatest extent practicable directly from the subject thereof. It is 
not always feasible to rely upon the subject of an investigation as a 
source for information which may implicate him or her in illegal 
activities. In addition, collecting information directly from the 
subject could seriously compromise an investigation by prematurely 
revealing its nature and scope, or could provide the subject with an 
opportunity to conceal criminal activities, or intimidate potential 
sources, in order to avoid apprehension.
    (6) From subsection (e)(3) because providing such notice to the 
subject of an investigation, or to other individual sources, could 
seriously compromise the investigation by prematurely revealing its 
nature and scope, or could inhibit cooperation, or permit the subject to 
evade apprehension.
    (7) From (e)(4) (G) and (H); (f); (g); and (h) because these 
provisions concern an individual's access to records which concern him 
and such access to records in this system would compromise 
investigations, reveal investigatory techniques and confidential 
informants, and invade the privacy of private citizens who provide 
information in connection with a particular investigation.
    (8) From subsection (e)(5) because in the collection of information 
for law enforcement purposes it is impossible to determine what 
information is accurate, relevant, timely, and complete. With the 
passage of time, seemingly irrelevant or untimely information may 
acquire new significance as further investigation brings new details to 
light and the accuracy of such information can only be determined in a 
court of law. The restrictions of subsection (e)(5) would restrict the 
ability of trained investigators to exercise their judgment in reporting 
on investigations and impede the development of information necessary 
for effective law enforcement.
    (9) From subsection (e)(8) because the application of this provision 
could prematurely reveal an ongoing criminal investigation to the 
subject of the investigation and could reveal investigative techniques, 
procedures or evidence.
[59 FR 9089, Feb. 25, 1994]



Sec. 10.22  Specific exemptions.

    (a) The following systems of records are eligible for exemption 
under 5 U.S.C. 552a(k)(2) because they contain investigatory material 
compiled for law enforcement purposes, other than material within the 
scope of subsection (j)(2) of 5 U.S.C. 552a. Provided, however, that if 
any individual is denied any right, privilege or benefit that he would 
otherwise be eligible, as a result of the maintenance of such material, 
such material shall be provided to such individual, except to the extent 
that the disclosure of such material would reveal the identity of a 
source who furnished information to the Government under an express 
promise that the identify of the source would be held in confidence, or 
prior to January 1, 1975, under an implied promise that the identity of 
the source would be held in confidence. Accordingly, the following 
systems of records are exempt from (c)(3); (d); (e)(1); (e)(4) (G) and 
(H); (f); (g); and (h) of 5 U.S.C. 552a.
    (1) PCC/GSCP-2, Canal Protection Division Incident Report Files;
    (2) PCC/OIG-1, Investigative Files of the Office of Inspector 
General;
    (3) PCC/OIG-2, Allegation/Complaint Files of the Office of Inspector 
General;
    (4) PCC/OIG-3, Cash Audit Files.
    (5) PCC/FMAC-1, Embezzlements, Burglaries, and Cash Shortages;
    (6) PCC/EO-2, Equal Employment Opportunity Complaint File;
    (7) PCC/GCCL-1, Marine Accident/Miscellaneous General Claims Files;
    (8) PCC/GSCS-2, Housing Complaints Files;
    (9) PCC/GSCX-1, Administrative Reports, Transfer of Custody and 
Official Complaint Files.
    (10) PCC/AEPR-1, Probation and Parole Unit Child Custody Reports;
    (11) PCC/AEPR-2, Presentence and Preparole Investigation Reports;
    (12) PCC/AEPR-3, Probation and Parole Unit Statistical File;
    (13) PCC/CAPS-2, Case Investigations;
    (14) PCC/GSPL-1, Law Enforcement Case Report Files;

[[Page 30]]

    (15) PCC/GSPL-2, Police Headquarters Confidential File;
    (16) PCC/GSPL-3, Detective Confidential Files;
    (17) PCC/GSPL-4, Convict Files;
    (18) PCC/GSPL-6, Police Photo Files;
    (19) PCC/GSPL-7, Fingerprint File;
    (20) PCC/GSPL-10, Master Name File;
    (21) PCC/CZG-HL-2, Medical Administration System.
    (b) Exemptions from the particular subsections are justified for the 
following reasons:
    (1) From subsection (c)(3) because the release of the accounting of 
disclosures would permit the subject of a criminal investigation and/or 
civil case or matter under investigation, in litigation, or under 
regulatory or administrative review or action to obtain valuable 
information concerning the nature of that investigation, case or matter 
and present a serious impediment to law enforcement or civil legal 
activities.
    (2) From (d); (e)(4) (G) and (H); (f); (g); and (h) because these 
provisions concern an individual's access to records which concern him 
and such access to records in this system would compromise 
investigations, reveal investigatory techniques and confidential 
informants, and invade the privacy of private citizens who provide 
information in connection with a particular investigation.
    (3) From subsection (e)(1) because it is often impossible to 
determine relevancy or necessity of information in the early stages of 
an investigation. The value of such information is a question of 
judgment and timing; what appears relevant and necessary when collected 
may ultimately be evaluated and viewed as irrelevant and unnecessary to 
an investigation. In addition, information may be obtained concerning 
the violation of laws other than those within the scope of its 
jurisdiction. In the interest of effective law enforcement, this 
information should be retained because it may aid in establishing 
patterns of unlawful activity and provide leads for other law 
enforcement agencies. Further, in obtaining evidence during an 
investigation, information may be provided which relates to matters 
incidental to the main purpose of the investigation but which may be 
pertinent to the investigative jurisdiction of another agency. Such 
information cannot readily be identified.
    (c) The following systems of records are eligible for exemption 
under 5 U.S.C. 552a(k)(5) because they contain investigatory material 
compiled solely for the purpose of determining suitability, eligibility 
or qualifications for Federal civilian employment, military service, 
Federal contracts, or access to classified information, but only to the 
extent that the disclosure of such material would reveal the identity of 
a source who furnished information to the Government under an express 
promise that the identity of the source would be held in confidence, or, 
prior to January 1, 1975, under an implied promise that the identity of 
the source would be held in confidence. Accordingly, these systems of 
records are exempt from 5 U.S.C. 552a(c)(3) and (d).
    (1) PCC/FMAC-1, Embezzlements, Burglaries, and Cash Shortages;
    (2) PCC/PB-2, Appeals, Grievances, Complaints and Assistance 
Records;
    (3) PCC/PB-3, Personnel Investigation Records;
    (4) PCC/PR-5, Recruiting and Placement Records;
    (5) PCC/PR-7, Personnel Reference Unit Files.
    (6) PCC/OIG-1, Investigative Files of the Office of Inspector 
General;
    (7) PCC/OIG-2, Allegation/Complaint Files of the Office of Inspector 
General;
    (8) PCC/OIG-3, Cash Audit Files.
    (d) Exemptions from the particular subsections are justified for the 
following reasons:
    (1) From (c)(3) because release of an accounting of disclosure to an 
individual who is the subject of an investigation could compromise the 
investigation.
    (2) From (d) because access to or amendment of records in these 
systems would reveal the identity(ies) of the source(s) of information 
collected in the course of a background investigation. Such knowledge 
might violate the explicit or implicit promise of confidentiality made 
to the source during the investigation or constitute an unwarranted 
invasion of the personal privacy of third parties, or reveal sensitive 
investigative techniques and procedures. Such breaches could restrict

[[Page 31]]

the free flow of information vital to a determination of a candidate's 
qualifications and suitability.
    (e) The following systems of records are eligible for exemption 
under 5 U.S.C. 552a (k)(6) because they contain testing or examination 
material used solely to determine individual qualifications for 
appointment or promotion in the Federal service, the disclosure of which 
would compromise the objectivity or fairness of the testing or 
examination process. Accordingly, these systems of records are exempt 
from 5 U.S.C. 552a(d).
    (1) PCC/CZG/BRAE-1, Canal Zone Board of Registration for Architects 
and Professional Engineers Reference Files;
    (2) PCC/MRBL-1, Marine License Files;
    (3) PCC/MRNA-1, Admeasurer Examination File;
    (f) Exemptions from the particular subsections are justified for the 
following reasons:
    (1) The exemption from (d) is justified because portions of records 
in these systems relate to testing or examining materials and are used 
solely to determine individual qualifications for appointment or 
promotion in the Federal service. Access to or amendment of this 
information would compromise the objectivity and fairness of the testing 
or examining process.
    (2) [Reserved]

Sec. 60.3  Classification levels, categories, and limitations.

    (a) Classification levels. Official information which requires 
protection against unauthorized disclosure in the interest of the 
national security shall be classified Top Secret, Secret, or 
Confidential depending upon the degree of its significance to national 
security. No other terms or phrases of classification shall be used to 
identify such information except as otherwise expressly provided by 
statute. If there is reasonable doubt about the need to classify 
information, it shall be safeguarded as if it were classified pending a 
determination by one of the original classification authorities listed 
in Sec. 60.4(a), who shall make this determination within thirty (30) 
days. If there is reasonable doubt about the appropriate level of 
classification, it shall be safeguarded at the higher level of 
classification pending a determination by one of the original 
classification authorities, who shall make this determination within 
thirty (30) days.
    (1) Top Secret shall be applied to information, the unauthorized 
disclosure of which reasonably could be expected to cause exceptionally 
grave damage to the national security. The Commission does not have the 
authority to classify information originally as Top Secret.
    (2) Secret shall be applied to information, the unauthorized 
disclosure of which reasonably could be expected to cause serious damage 
to the national security.
    (3) Confidential shall be applied to information, the unauthorized 
disclosure of which reasonably could be expected to cause damage to the 
national security.
    (b) Classification categories. Information shall be considered for 
classification if it concerns:
    (1) Military plans, weapons, or operations;
    (2) The vulnerabilities or capabilities of systems, installations, 
projects, or plans relating to the national security;
    (3) Foreign government information;
    (4) Intelligence activities (including special activities), or 
intelligence sources or methods;
    (5) Foreign relations or foreign activities of the United States;

[[Page 34]]

    (6) Scientific, technological, or economic matters relating to the 
national security;
    (7) United States Government programs for safeguarding nuclear 
materials or facilities;
    (8) Cryptology;
    (9) A confidential source; or
    (10) Other categories of information that are related to the 
national security and that require protection against unauthorized 
disclosure as determined by the President or by agency heads or other 
officials who have been delegated original classification authority by 
the President. Any determination made under this subsection shall be 
reported promptly to the Director of Information Security, Office of the 
Deputy Under Secretary of Defense (Policy).
    (c) Information that is determined to concern one or more of the 
categories in Sec. 60.3(b) shall be classified when one of the original 
classification authorities listed in Sec. 60.4(a) also determines that 
its unauthorized disclosure, either by itself or in the context of other 
information, reasonably could be expected to cause damage to the 
national security. Classification on the basis of combination or 
association with other (classified or unclassified) information shall be 
supported by a written explanation which shall be maintained with the 
record copy of such information.
    (d) Unauthorized disclosure of foreign government information, the 
identity of a confidential foreign source, or intelligence sources or 
methods is presumed to cause damage to the national security.
    (e) Information classified in accordance with Sec. 60.3 shall not be 
declassified automatically as a result of any unofficial publication or 
inadvertent or unauthorized disclosure in the United States or abroad of 
identical or similar information, see Sec. 60.11(e).
    (f) Limitations on classification.
    (1) In no case shall information be classified in order to conceal 
violations of law, inefficiency, or administrative error; to prevent 
embarrassment to a person, an organization, or the Panama Canal 
Commission or other agency; to restrain competition; or to prevent or 
delay the release of information that does not require protection in the 
interest of national security.
    (2) Basic scientific research information not clearly related to the 
national security may not be classified.
    (3) The President or the officials designated by the President in 
the Federal Register may reclassify information previously declassified 
and disclosed if it is determined in writing that:
    (i) The information requires protection in the interest of national 
security; and
    (ii) The information may reasonably be recovered. These 
reclassification actions shall be reported promptly to the Office of the 
Deputy Under Secretary of Defense (Policy) for subsequent reporting to 
the Director of the Information Security Oversight Office.
    (4) Information in the custody of the Panama Canal Commission may be 
classified or reclassified after an agency has received a request for it 
under the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552) or the Privacy Act 
of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a), or the mandatory review provisions of Executive 
Order 12356 if such classification meets the requirements of that 
Executive Order and is accomplished personally and on a document-by-
document basis by the officials identified in Sec. 60.4(a) or an 
official with original Top Secret classification authority.
[53 FR 7894, Mar. 11, 1988, as amended at 56 FR 59882, Nov. 26, 1991]



Sec. 60.4  Limitations on original classification authority.

    (a) The authority to classify information originally under this part 
shall be limited to the categories of Secret and Confidential. Only the 
following officials of the Panama Canal Commission are authorized to 
classify information or material originally:
    (1) The Deputy Administrator;
    (2) The Director, Office of Executive Administration; and
    (3) The Secretary, Washington Office.
    (b) Other officials and employees of the Panama Canal Commission 
originating documents which, in their opinion, should be classified as 
Secret or Confidential prior to dispatch, shall forward these documents 
to the Director, Office of Executive Administration

[[Page 35]]

with recommendation for appropriate classification. Such documents shall 
be protected by a cover sheet (such as Panama Canal Commission Forms 
165-Conf or 165-B Secret) of the classification recommended by the 
originator, and shall be handled and safeguarded as if classified, see 
Sec. 60.8(a).
    (c) All information originated within the Commission which is 
believed to require classification as Top Secret (within the meaning of 
this part and Executive Order 12356) shall be hand carried by the 
originator to the Director, Office of Executive Administration who will 
determine the appropriate level of classification. If the information 
warrants Top Secret classification, that official shall transmit the 
information promptly under appropriate safeguards to the agency which 
has appropriate subject matter interest and classification authority in 
accordance with the procedures established by Sec. 60.18 of this part. 
If it is not clear which agency should get the information, it shall be 
sent to the Director of the Information Security Oversight Office for a 
determination.
    (d) Intra-office documents, such as longhand notes or draft papers, 
that contain information affecting the national security shall be 
distinctly marked with the proper classification at top and bottom, by 
hand, by the originator, and shall be protected and destroyed in the 
same manner as an inter-office or inter-agency classified documents. 
Such intra-office documents shall be forwarded to the Office of 
Executive Administration for destruction as soon as the content has been 
included in a formal classified paper or as soon as the note or draft is 
no longer required.
    (e) A holder of classified information or material shall observe and 
respect the classification assigned by the originator.
    (f) Exceptional cases. When an employee, contractor, licensee, or 
grantee of an agency that does not have original classification 
authority originates information believed by that person to require 
classification, the information shall be protected in a manner 
consistent with Executive Order 12356 and its implementing directives. 
The information shall be transmitted promptly as provided under the 
Order or its implementing directives to the agency that has appropriate 
subject matter interest and classification authority with respect to 
this information. That agency shall decide within thirty (30) days 
whether to classify this information. If it is not clear which agency 
has classification responsibility for this information, it shall be sent 
to the Director of the Information Security Oversight Office. The 
Director shall determine the agency having primary subject matter 
interest and forward the information, with appropriate recommendations, 
to that agency for a classification determination.
[53 FR 7894, Mar. 11, 1988, as amended at 56 FR 59882, Nov. 26, 1991]



Sec. 60.5  Use of derivative classification.

    (a) Derivative classification is: (1) the determination that 
information is in substance the same as information currently 
classified; and (2) the application of the same classification markings. 
Persons who only reproduce, extract, or summarize classified 
information, or who only apply classification markings derived from 
source material or as directed by a classification guide, need not 
possess original classification authority.
    (b) Persons who apply derivative classification markings shall:
    (1) Observe and respect original classification decisions; and
    (2) Carry forward to any newly created documents any assigned 
authorized markings. The declassification date or event that provides 
the longest period of classification shall be used for documents 
classified on the basis of multiple sources.
    (c) If a person who applies derivative classification markings 
believes that the process of reproducing, extracting, paraphrasing, 
restating or summarizing may have changed the level of or removed the 
basis for classification, an appropriate official of the originating 
agency or the office of origin who has the authority to upgrade, 
downgrade or declassify the information must be consulted.
    (d) Paper copies of derivatively classified documents shall be 
marked at the time of origination as follows:

[[Page 36]]

    (1) Classification authority. (i) The authority for classification 
shall be shown as follows:

    CLASSIFIED BY (description of source document on classification 
guide).

    (ii) If a document is classified on the basis of more than one 
source document or classification guide, the authority for 
classification shall be shown as follows:

    CLASSIFIED BY MULTIPLE SOURCES

    In these cases the derivative classifier shall maintain the 
identification of each source with the file or record copy of the 
derivatively classified document. A document derivatively classified on 
the basis of a source document that is marked ``CLASSIFIED BY MULTIPLE 
SOURCES'' shall cite the source document in its ``CLASSIFIED BY'' line 
rather than the term ``MULTIPLE SOURCES.''
    (2) Declassification and downgrading instructions. Dates or events 
for automatic declassification or downgrading, or the notation 
``ORIGINATING AGENCY'S DETERMINATION REQUIRED'' to indicate that the 
document is not to be declassified automatically, shall be carried 
forward from the source document, or as directed by a classification 
guide, and shown on a ``DECLASSIFY ON'' line as follows:

    DECLASSIFY ON (date; description of event) or ORIGINATING AGENCY'S 
DETERMINATION REQUIRED (OADR)

    (3) Any additional markings or abbreviations described in paragraphs 
(b) through (m) of Sec. 60.8 of this part appearing on the source 
material shall be carried forward to the new material when appropriate.



Sec. 60.6  Requirements for classification guides.

    (a) Classification guides used to direct derivative classification 
and issued pursuant to Section 2.2 of Executive Order 12356 and 
Sec. 60.5 of this part shall, at a minimum:
    (1) Identify or categorize the elements of information to be 
protected;
    (2) State which of the classification designations (i.e., Top 
Secret, Secret, or Confidential) applies to each element or category of 
the information;
    (3) Prescribe declassification instructions for each element or 
category of information in terms of:
    (i) A period of time,
    (ii) The occurrence of an event, or
    (iii) A notation that the information shall not be declassified 
automatically without the approval of the originating agency; and
    (4) Indicate how the designation, time limits, markings, and other 
requirements of Executive Order 12356 and this part are to be applied.
    (b) Each classification guide shall be kept current and shall be 
reviewed at least once every two years and updated as necessary. The 
Office of Executive Administration shall compile and maintain a list of 
classification guides in current use.
    (c) Each guide shall be approved personally and in writing by the 
Director, Office of Executive Administration.
    (d) The Deputy Administrator may, for good cause, grant and revoke 
waivers of the requirement to prepare classification guides for 
specified classes of documents or information. A decision to waive the 
requirement should be based, at minimum, on an evaluation of the 
following factors:
    (1) The ability to segregate and describe the elements of 
information;
    (2) The practicality of producing or disseminating the guide because 
of the nature of the information;
    (3) The anticipated usage of the guide as a basis for derivative 
classification; and
    (4) The availability of alternative sources for derivatively 
classifying the information in a uniform manner. The Director of the 
Information Security Oversight Office shall be notified of any waivers.
[53 FR 7894, Mar. 11, 1988, as amended at 56 FR 59882, Nov. 26, 1991]



Sec. 60.7  Duration of classification.

    (a) Information shall be classified as long as required by national 
security considerations. When it can be determined, a specific date or 
event for declassification shall be set by the original classification 
authority at the time the information is originally classified.
    (b) Automatic declassification determinations under predecessor 
orders

[[Page 37]]

shall remain valid unless the classification is extended by an 
authorized official of the originating agency. These extensions may be 
by individual documents or categories of information. The originating 
agency shall be responsible for notifying holders of the information of 
such extensions.
    (c) Information classified under predecessor orders and marked for 
declassification review shall remain classified until reviewed for 
declassification under the provisions of Executive Order 12356.



Sec. 60.8  Identification and markings.

    (a) At the time of original classification, the following 
information shall be shown on the face of all classified documents, or 
clearly associated with other forms of classified information in a 
manner appropriate to the medium involved, unless this information 
itself would reveal a confidential source or relationship not otherwise 
evident in the document or information:
    (1) One of the three classification levels defined in Sec. 60.3;
    (2) If the original classification authority is other than the 
approving or signing official, the identity shall be shown as follows:

    CLASSIFIED BY (identification of original classification authority)

    (3) Agency and office of origin. If the identity of the originating 
agency and office is not apparent on the face of a document, it shall be 
placed below the ``CLASSIFIED BY'' line.
    (4) Declassification and downgrading instructions. Declassification 
and, as applicable, downgrading instructions shall be shown as follows:
    (i) For information to be declassified automatically on a specific 
date:

    DECLASSIFY ON: (date)

    (ii) For information to be declassified automatically upon 
occurrence of a specific event:

DECLASSIFY ON: (description of event)

    (iii) For information not to be declassified automatically:

DECLASSIFY ON: ORIGINATING AGENCY'S DETERMINATION REQUIRED or ``OADR''

    (iv) For information to be downgraded automatically on a specific 
date or upon occurrence of a specific event:

DOWNGRADE TO (classification level) ON (date or description of event)

    (b) Each classified document shall by marking or other means, 
indicate which portions are classified, with the applicable 
classification level, and which portions are not classified. The Deputy 
Administrator may, for good cause, grant and revoke waivers of this 
requirement for specified classes of documents or information. The 
Director of the Information Security Oversight Office shall be notified 
of any waivers.
    (c) Marking designations implementing the provisions of Executive 
Order 12356, including abbreviations, shall conform to the standards 
prescribed in implementing directives issued by the Information Security 
Oversight Office.
    (d) Foreign government information shall either retain its original 
classification or be assigned a United States classification that shall 
ensure a degree of protection at least equivalent to that required by 
the entity that furnished the information.
    (e) Information assigned a level of classification under predecessor 
Executive Orders shall be considered as classified at that level of 
classification despite the omission of other required markings. Omitted 
markings may be inserted on a document by the officials listed in 
Sec. 60.4(a) of this part.
    (f) The overall classification of a document, whether or not 
permanently bound, or any copy or reproduction thereof, shall be 
conspicuously marked or stamped at the top and bottom of the outside of 
the front cover (if any), on the title page (if any), on the first page, 
on the back page, and on the outside of the back cover (if any). Each 
interior page of a classified document shall be marked or stamped at the 
top and bottom either according to the highest classification of the 
content of the page, including the designation ``Unclassified'' when 
appropriate, or according to the highest classification of the document. 
In any case, the classification marking of the page shall not supersede 
the classification marking of

[[Page 38]]

portions of the page marked with lower levels of classification.
    (g) Whenever practicable, subjects and titles shall be selected so 
as not to require classification. When the subject or title is 
classified, an unclassified identifier may be assigned to facilitate 
receipt and reference.
    (h) Classifiers shall identify the level of classification of each 
classified portion of a document (including subjects and titles), and 
those portions that are not classified. Portion marking shall be 
accomplished by placing a parenthetical designator immediately preceding 
or following the text that it governs. The symbols ``(TS)'' for Top 
Secret, ``(S)'' for Secret, ``(C)'' for Confidential, and ``(U)'' for 
Unclassified, shall be used for this purpose. If individual portion 
marking is impracticable, the document shall contain a description 
sufficient to identify the information that is classified and the level 
of such classification. The officials listed in Sec. 60.4(a) may for 
good cause, request from the DUSD(P) a waiver of the portion marking 
requirement for specified classes of documents or information. The 
Director of the Information Security Oversight Office shall be notified 
by the DUSD(P) of any waivers.
    (i) The classification and associated markings prescribed by this 
part for documents shall, where practicable, be affixed to material 
other than documents by stamping, tagging, or other means. If this is 
not practicable, recipients shall be made aware of the classification 
and associated markings by notification or other means.
    (j) A transmittal document shall indicate on its face the highest 
classification of any information transmitted by it. It shall also 
include the following or similar instruction:
    (1) For an unclassified transmittal document:

UNCLASSIFIED WHEN CLASSIFIED ENCLOSURE IS REMOVED

    (2) For a classified transmittal document:

UPON REMOVAL OF ATTACHMENTS THIS DOCUMENT IS (classification level of 
the transmittal document standing alone)

    (k) Documents that contain foreign government information shall 
include either the marking ``FOREIGN GOVERNMENT INFORMATION,'' or a 
marking that otherwise indicates that the information is foreign 
government information. If the fact that information is foreign 
government information must be concealed, the marking shall not be used 
and the document shall be marked as if it were wholly of U.S. origin. 
Documents classified by a foreign government or an international 
organization of governments shall, if the foreign classification is not 
in English, be marked with the equivalent United States classification. 
Foreign government information not classified by a foreign government or 
an international organization of governments but provided to the United 
States in confidence by a foreign government or by an international 
organization of governments, shall be classified at an appropriate level 
and shall be marked with the United States classification accordingly.
    (l) In addition to the marking requirement in paragraphs (a) through 
(k) of this section, the additional markings provided in paragraphs 
(l)(1)-(3) of this section shall, as appropriate, be displayed 
prominently on classified information. When display of these additional 
markings is not practicable, their applicability to the information 
shall be included in the written notification of the assigned 
classification.
    (1) For classified information containing Restricted Data or 
Formerly Restricted Data as defined in the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as 
amended, such markings as may be prescribed by the Department of Energy 
in regulations issued under the Act shall be applied.
    (2) For classified information involving intelligence sources or 
methods:

WARNING NOTICE--INTELLIGENCE SOURCES AND METHODS INVOLVED.

    (3) For classified information that, pursuant to Executive Order 
12356, the originator has determined should be subject to special 
dissemination or reproduction limitations, or both, a statement placing 
the user on notice of the restrictions shall be included in the text of 
the document or on its cover

[[Page 39]]

sheet; e.g., ``Reproduction requires approval of originator,'' or 
``Further dissemination only as directed by the Director, Office of 
Executive Administration.''
    (m) National security information that is transmitted electronically 
shall be marked as follows:
    (1) The highest level of classification shall appear before the 
first line of text;
    (2) A ``CLASSIFIED BY'' line is not required;
    (3) The duration of classification shall appear as follows:
    (i) For information to be declassified automatically on a specific 
date:

DECL:(date)

    (ii) For information to be declassified upon occurrence of a 
specific event:

DECL:(description of event)

    (iii) For information not to be automatically declassified which 
requires the originating agency's determination, see Sec. 60.7(a):

DECL: OADR

    (iv) For information to be automatically downgraded:

DNG (abbreviation of classification level to which the information is to 
be downgraded and date or description of event on which downgrading is 
to occur).
[53 FR 7894, Mar. 11, 1988, as amended at 56 FR 59882, Nov. 26, 1991]



Sec. 60.9  Declassification and downgrading.

    (a) Information shall be declassified or downgraded as soon as 
national security considerations permit. Review of classified 
information shall be coordinated with other agencies that have a direct 
interest in the subject matter. Information that continues to meet the 
classification requirements prescribed by Sec. 60.3 of this part, 
despite the passage of time, will continue to be protected in accordance 
with Executive Order 12356 and this part.
    (b) Information shall be declassified or downgraded by the official 
who authorized the original classification, if that official is still 
serving in the same position; by the originator's successor; by a 
supervisory official of either; or by officials delegated such 
authority, in writing, by an official listed in Sec. 60.4(a).
    (c) In the case of classified information transferred in conjunction 
with a transfer of functions, and not merely for storage purposes, the 
receiving agency shall be deemed to be the originating agency for 
purposes of Executive Order 12356 and this part.
    (d) In the case of classified information that is not officially 
transferred as described in Sec. 60.9(c), but that originated in an 
agency that has ceased to exist and for which there is no successor 
agency, each agency in possession of such information shall be deemed to 
be the originating agency for purposes of Executive Order 12356 and this 
part. Such information may be declassified or downgraded by the agency 
in possession after consultation with any other agency that has an 
interest in the subject matter of the information.
    (e) The Commission shall maintain a current listing of officials 
delegated declassification or downgrading authority by name or position.
    (f) Classified information accessioned into the National Archives of 
the United States from the Commission shall be declassified or 
downgraded by the Archivist of the United States in accordance with 
Executive Order 12356, the directives of the Information Security 
Oversight Office, and guidelines established by the Director, Office of 
Executive Administration of the Panama Canal Commission. Such guidelines 
shall be reviewed and updated, if necessary, at least every five years, 
unless earlier review is requested by the Archivist.
[53 FR 7894, Mar. 11, 1988, as amended at 56 FR 59882, Nov. 26, 1991]



Sec. 60.10  Access to classified information.

    (a) A person is eligible for access to classified information 
provided that a determination of trustworthiness has been made and that 
such access is essential to the accomplishment of lawful and authorized 
Government purposes. The determinations of eligibility and 
trustworthiness, referred to in this part as a security clearance, shall 
be based on such investigations as the Panama Canal Commission may 
require. The Deputy Personnel Director

[[Page 40]]

shall be responsible for conducting investigations relative to the 
issuance of security clearances in accordance with the standards and 
criteria of Executive Order 10450, and will maintain a list showing the 
level of security clearances granted to each person. Security clearances 
will be granted by the Director, Office of Executive Administration, as 
provided in Sec. 60.14 of this part.
    (b) In addition to a security clearance, a person must have a need 
for access to the particular classified information or material sought 
in connection with the performance of that person's official duties or 
contractual obligations, except in those instances provided for in 
paragraph (d) of this section. The determination of that need shall be 
made by the Director, Office of Executive Administration in coordination 
with officials having responsibility for the classified information or 
material.
    (c) When a person no longer requires access to classified 
information or material in connection with the performance of that 
person's official duties or contractual obligations, the security 
clearance shall be withdrawn. Likewise, when a person no longer needs 
access to a particular security classification category, that person's 
security clearance shall be adjusted to the classification category 
still required for the performance of that person's duties and 
obligations. In both instances, such action shall be without prejudice 
to the person's eligibility for a security clearance should the need 
again arise.
    (d) Persons engaged in historical research projects and former 
Presidential appointees who occupied policy-making positions may be 
authorized access to classified information or material originating 
within the Panama Canal Commission. In such cases, the requirement in 
section 60.10(a) that access to classified information may be granted 
only as is essential to the accomplishment of lawful and authorized 
Government purposes, may be waived, but only if the Commission has 
jurisdiction over the information and:
    (1) The Commission makes a written determination that access is 
consistent with the interests of national security;
    (2) The Commission takes appropriate steps to protect classified 
information from unauthorized disclosure or compromise, and ensures that 
the information is safeguarded in a manner consistent with Executive 
Order 12356;
    (3) The Commission limits the access granted to former Presidential 
appointees to items that the person originated, reviewed, signed or 
received while serving as a Presidential appointee; and
    (4) In addition, the Director, Office of Executive Administration 
obtains:
    (i) Written agreements from the requesters to safeguard the 
information to which they are given access, as permitted by Executive 
Order 12356 and this part; and
    (ii) Written consent from the requester for the Director, Office of 
Executive Administration to review all of their notes and manuscripts 
for the purpose of assuring that no classified information is contained 
in them.
    (e) If the access requested by historical researchers and former 
Presidential appointees requires the rendering of services for which 
fair and equitable fees may be charged pursuant to 31 U.S.C. 9701, the 
requesters shall be so notified and the fees may be imposed.
    (f) Except as provided by directives issued by the President through 
the National Security Council, classified information originating in one 
agency may not be disseminated outside any other agency to which it has 
been made available without the consent of the originating agency.
[53 FR 7894, Mar. 11, 1988, as amended at 56 FR 59883, Nov. 26, 1991]



Sec. 60.11  Top Secret, Secret, and Confidential Control Officer.

    (a) The Director, Office of Executive Administration, Panama Canal 
Commission, is the Agency's designated Top Secret Control Officer and is 
responsible for the receipt, current accountability, and transmission of 
all Top Secret information. The Deputy Director, Office of Executive 
Administration is the Alternate Top Secret Control Officer. A physical 
inventory of all Top Secret material shall be made at least annually.
    (b) The Director and the Deputy Director, Office of Executive 
Administration are also the Agency's designated Control Officer and 
Alternate Control

[[Page 41]]

Officer, respectively, for all classified information up to and 
including Secret.
    (c) The Director, Office of Executive Administration shall act on 
all suggestions and complaints received by the Commission with respect 
to the administration of Executive Order 12356 and this part, and may 
also recommend to the Deputy Administrator appropriate administrative 
actions or sanctions to correct abuse or violation of any provision of 
that Order or directives under it. The Director of the Information 
Security Oversight Office shall be promptly informed by the agency when 
such violations occur.
    (d) To the extent required by applicable laws and agency 
regulations, the Deputy Administrator shall report to the Attorney 
General evidence reflected in classified information of possible 
violations of Federal criminal law by an agency employee and of possible 
violations by any other person of those Federal criminal laws specified 
in guidelines adopted by the Attorney General.
    (e) When the Commission is the agency of primary interest, following 
an inadvertent or unauthorized publication or disclosure of information 
identical or similar to information that has been classified in 
accordance with the Executive Order 12356 or predecessor orders, the 
Director, Office of Executive Administration shall determine the degree 
of damage to the national security, the need for continued 
classification, and, in coordination with the agency in which the 
disclosure occurred, what action must be taken to prevent similar 
occurrences, see Sec. 60.17.
[53 FR 7894, Mar. 11, 1988, as amended at 56 FR 59883, Nov. 26, 1991]



Sec. 60.12  Mandatory review for declassification.

    (a) Any United States citizen, permanent resident alien, federal 
agency, or the government of a U.S. state or municipality may request 
that classified information be reviewed for declassification by the 
originating agency and released. Such requests must be submitted in 
writing to the Chief, Administrative Services Division, Panama Canal 
Commission, Unit 2300, APO AA 34011-2300 (or Panama Canal Commission, 
Balboa Heights, Republic of Panama). In accordance with section 9701 of 
title 31, United States Code, fees may be applied to any requests for 
declassification and release. A request need not identify the 
information requested by date or title, but must describe the document 
or material containing the information with sufficient specificity to 
enable the agency to locate it with a reasonable amount of effort. 
Whenever a request is deficient in its description of the information 
sought, the Chief, Administrative Services Division shall notify the 
requester that, unless additional identifying information is provided or 
the scope of the request is narrowed, the Commission will take no 
further action on the request.
    (b) When the Commission receives any request for documents in its 
custody that were classified by another agency, it shall refer copies of 
the request and the requested documents to the originating agency for 
processing, and may, after consultation with the originating agency, 
inform the requester of the referral. In cases in which the originating 
agency determines in writing that a response is required, it is the 
responsibility of the referring agency to respond to the requester.
    (c) When another agency refers a request to the Commission for 
review because the Commission originally classified the information 
requested, the Commission shall treat the request as though it were 
submitted directly to it under paragraph (a) of this section. The 
Commission shall send its decision directly to the requester and shall, 
if so requested, notify the referring agency of its decision on the 
request and on the appeal, if any.
    (d) Requests for classification review made under paragraph (a) of 
this section shall be promptly acknowledged by the Chief, Administrative 
Services Division and then forwarded to the official who originally 
classified the document, or that official's successor, or when 
appropriate to an official designated by an official listed in 
Sec. 60.4(a), who, in coordination with the Chief, Administrative 
Services Division, shall

[[Page 42]]

decide whether the requested information may be declassified, see 
Sec. 60.7 and Sec. 60.9.
    (1) Unless withholding is otherwise warranted under applicable law, 
any information which may be declassified shall normally be forwarded to 
the requester within sixty (60) days after receipt of a proper request. 
If additional time is needed to locate or review the requested 
information, the Chief, Administrative Services Division will notify the 
requester accordingly. Except in unusual circumstances, a decision will 
be made within one year of receipt of the request.
    (2) When information cannot be declassified in its entirety, a 
reasonable effort will be made, consistent with other applicable law, to 
release those portions of the requested information that constitute a 
coherent segment.
    (3) Upon the denial or a partial denial of a request, the Chief, 
Administrative Services Division shall reply to the requester and 
provide a brief statement of the reasons for the denial, a notice of the 
right to appeal the decision to the Director, Office of Executive 
Administration and a notice that the appeal must be in writing and must 
be received by the Commission within sixty (60) days of receipt of the 
decision letter by the requester. Appeals should be addressed to: 
Director, Office of Executive Administration, Panama Canal Commission, 
Unit 2300, APO AA 34011-2300 (or Panama Canal Commission, Balboa 
Heights, Republic of Panama).
    (e) Within thirty (30) days after its receipt of a proper appeal 
against an initial decision not to declassify information, the Director, 
Office of Executive Administration shall make and dispatch the decision 
whether the information should be declassified. If the Director, Office 
of Executive Administration is the original classification authority of 
the information under appeal, the Deputy Administrator shall determine 
whether the information may be declassified. The Director, Office of 
Executive Administration shall, after the decision, promptly make 
available to the requester any information that is declassified and 
which is otherwise releasable. If continued classification of the 
requested information is necessary, the requester shall be notified of 
that decision and the reasons therefor. If requested, the appeal 
determination shall also be communicated to any referring agency.
    (f) The classification reviews made in response to requests and 
appeals under this section are in addition to the systematic review of 
classified information prescribed by Executive Order 12356 and 32 CFR 
part 2001.
    (g) Requests for access to classified material submitted under the 
Freedom of Information Act or the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552 and 
552a) shall be processed in accordance with parts 9 and 10 of 35 CFR, 
and shall be subject to the same review criteria for declassification as 
requests submitted under paragraphs (a) through (d) of this section. In 
response to a request for information under the Freedom of Information 
Act, the Privacy Act of 1974, or the mandatory review provisions of this 
Order, the Commission shall refuse to confirm or deny the existence or 
non-existence of requested information whenever the fact of its 
existence or non-existence is itself classifiable under Executive Order 
12356 or 32 CFR part 2001.
[53 FR 7894, Mar. 11, 1988, as amended at 56 FR 59883, Nov. 26, 1991; 59 
FR 26123, May 19, 1994]



Sec. 60.13  Custody and storage.

    (a) Classified information shall be protected in accordance with 
applicable National Security Council directives or directives 
promulgated by the Information Security Oversight Office and approved by 
the National Security Council.
    (b) Each bureau director and chief of an independent unit (or 
classified security control officer as designated by the Director, 
Office of Executive Administration) shall be responsible for assuring 
that all classified information within that official's organization is 
used, processed, stored, and transmitted only under conditions which 
will provide adequate protection and prevent access by, or dissemination 
to, unauthorized persons. Containers, vaults, alarm systems, and 
associated security devices procured after the effective date of this 
part for the storage and protection of classified information

[[Page 43]]

shall be in conformance with the standards and specifications published 
by the General Services Administration and, to the maximum extent 
practicable, be of the type designated on its Federal Supply Schedule.
    (c)(1) Top secret information shall be stored in a GSA-approved 
security container with an approved built-in, three-position, dial-type 
combination lock; in a vault protected by an alarm system and response 
force; or in other storage facility that meets the standards for top 
secret established under the provisions of paragraph (b) of this 
section.
    (2) Secret and confidential information shall be stored in a manner 
and under the conditions prescribed for top secret information, or in a 
container, vault, or alarmed area that meets the standards for secret or 
confidential information established pursuant to the provisions of 
paragraph (c)(1) of this section, and/or paragraph (c)(3) of this 
section.
    (3) Secret and confidential information may also be stored in a 
safe-type filing cabinet having a built-in, three-position, dial-type, 
changeable combination lock, or a steel filing cabinet equipped with a 
steel lock bar, provided it is secured by a three-position, changeable 
combination padlock approved by GSA for the purpose. The Director, 
Office of Executive Administration shall prescribe any necessary 
supplementary controls for storage of secret information in cabinets 
equipped with a steel lock bar.
    (d) Each bureau director and chief of an independent unit (or 
classified security control officer) is responsible for assuring that 
all personnel within that official's organization, having access to 
classified information, have a security clearance issued by the 
Director, Office of Executive Administration, see Sec. 60.14 and 
Sec. 60.16.
    (e)(1) Combinations of all repositories containing classified 
information shall be changed at least annually and forwarded in double-
sealed envelopes to the Office of Executive Administration. The double-
sealed envelopes shall be classified no lower than the highest category 
of information contained in the repositories. Combinations to dial-type 
locks shall be changed only by persons having appropriate security 
clearance, and shall be changed whenever such equipment is placed in 
use, whenever a person knowing the combination no longer requires access 
to the combination, whenever the equipment is taken out of service, and 
at least once every year. Knowledge of combinations protecting 
classified information shall be limited to the minimum number of persons 
necessary for operating purposes. Records of combinations shall be 
classified no lower than the highest level of classified information to 
be stored in the security equipment concerned. Bureau directors and 
heads of independent units (or classified security control officers) 
shall ensure that combinations of dial-type locks shall be changed 
whenever there is reason to suspect possible compromise of the current 
combination.
    (2) When security equipment having a built-in combination lock is 
taken out of service, the lock shall be reset to the standard 
combination 50-25-50. Combination padlocks shall be reset to the 
standard combination 10-20-30.
    (3) The Commission shall establish administrative procedures for the 
control and accountability of keys and locks whenever key-operated, 
high-security padlocks are utilized. The level of protection provided 
such keys shall be equivalent to that afforded the classified 
information being protected. Under no circumstances may keys be removed 
from the premises. They shall be stored in a secure container.
    (f) Custodians of classified matter are responsible for registering 
with the Office of Executive Administration the names of all persons 
having knowledge of combinations to repositories containing classified 
information.
    (1) Persons entrusted with classified information shall be 
responsible for providing protection and accountability for such 
information at all times and for locking classified information in 
approved security equipment whenever it is not in use or under the 
direct supervision of authorized persons. Custodians shall follow 
procedures which will ensure that unauthorized persons do not gain 
access to classified information.
    (2) Individuals charged with the custody of classified information 
shall

[[Page 44]]

conduct the necessary inspections within their areas to ensure adherence 
to procedural safeguards prescribed to protect classified information. 
The Director, Office of Executive Administration shall ensure that 
periodic inspections are made to determine whether procedural safeguards 
prescribed by agency regulations are in effect at all times.

Sec. 60.14  Security investigations; training and orientation of employees.

    (a) Requests for security clearances, including changes in the level 
of clearances, will be forwarded to the Office of Personnel 
Administration for background investigations and security checks. The 
Deputy Personnel Director shall ensure that all necessary investigations 
are completed, and will provide a recommendation on the issuance of a 
security clearance to the Office of Executive Administration. The 
Director, Office of Executive Administration, in consideration of all 
available information, will determine if a security clearance may be 
issued, or if the level may be changed, and establish the expiration 
date of the clearance.
    (b) The Director, Office of Executive Administration is also 
responsible for establishing and maintaining a training and orientation 
program for employees concerned with classified information or material.
[53 FR 7894, Mar. 11, 1988, as amended at 56 FR 59884, Nov. 26, 1991]



Sec. 60.15  Debriefing upon termination of employment.

    (a) Bureau directors and heads of independent units (or classified 
security control officers as designated by the Director, Office of 
Executive Administration) shall be responsible for notifying the Office 
of Executive Administration whenever it is necessary that an employee be 
briefed or debriefed. Such notification should be in writing and be at 
least sixty (60) days, or as long as possible, in advance.
    (b) Bureau directors and heads of independent units (or classified 
security control officers) shall ensure that debriefings are 
accomplished for any employee whose employment is terminated, or 
scheduled to be terminated, or when a temporary separation from 
employment (not to include leave) for sixty (60) days or more has 
occurred or is scheduled, whenever the employee has had access to

Sec. 67.2  Scope.

    The regulations in this part govern the procedures to be followed in 
redeeming outstanding Canal Zone postal savings deposits, postal savings 
certificates and postal money orders.



                Subpart B--Canal Zone Money Order System



Sec. 67.11  Scope of the subpart.

    This subpart covers procedures to be followed in the conduct of 
payment of outstanding Canal Zone money orders, and accounting for such 
transactions.



Sec. 67.12  Applicability of Federal postal laws and regulations.

    The provisions of the postal laws of the United States, and of 39 
CFR, relating to the payment of outstanding Canal Zone money orders, are 
applicable to the Panama Canal Commission, insofar as they are not in 
conflict with the provisions of this subpart.



Sec. 67.13  U.S. Postal Service restrictions.

    Any restrictions imposed by the United States Postal Service on 
payment of United States postal money orders shall apply to outstanding 
Canal Zone money orders.



Sec. 67.14  Payment.

    (a) Place of payment. Money orders may be paid at the Office of the 
Treasurer, Panama Canal Commission, which is authorized to pay 
outstanding Canal Zone money orders.
    (b) Canal Zone money orders. A money order may be paid at full face 
value when presented by the payee, endorsee,

[[Page 60]]

or purchaser, within the period of validity.

    Cross Reference: Procedure for payment, see Sec. 67.15. Period of 
validity, see Sec. 67.16.



Sec. 67.15  General procedures for payment of outstanding Canal Zone money orders.

    (a) Terms of payment. A money order shall be paid at its face value 
if presented by the payee, remitter or endorsee.
    (b) Examination of order. When a Canal Zone money order is presented 
for payment, the Cashier, Office of the Treasurer, shall examine it to 
see that:
    (1) It is not a form reported stolen.
    (2) It is not a counterfeit.
    (3) It is properly stamped and drawn by the issuing office.
    (4) It does not bear any alterations or erasures.
    (c) Machine-issued orders. The money orders issued by the print-
punch machine are payable in the amount printed on and punched in the 
order by the machine. The money orders issued by machine are payable in 
the amount imprinted by machine, but for no more than the amount stamped 
between the words ``Not Valid For More Than'' and the word ``Pay''.
    (d) Verification. Verification of an order presented for payment 
should be made by Chief, Agents Accounts Branch of the Panama Canal 
Commission, prior to payment by the cashier.
    (e) Identification--(1) General requirement. If the payee presenting 
the money order is not personally known to the cashier, he must prove 
his identity.
    (2) Identification of payee. Social security cards are not 
acceptable. Drivers permits, military identification cards, or other 
credential showing signature of bearer and having serial numbers or 
other indicia which can be traced to the holder are helpful in 
identification. The owner must sign the money order in the presence of 
the cashier. The cashier shall compare signature with identification, if 
possible, shall enter on the back of the order the license or serial 
number and full description of the identification; and shall also 
initial the back of the order and an impression of the agent's stamp 
will be affixed on the back of the order immediately on payment. This 
will aid in apprehending persons attempting forgery or other wrong 
payment.
    (3) Cashing endorsed money orders. This procedure must be followed 
carefully in the case of endorsed money orders, as they might bear a 
forged endorsement and be in the hands of the wrong person.
    (4) Payment to wrong person. If the cashier has taken proper care 
under the circumstances, the Treasurer of the Panama Canal Commission 
will recommend that he be relieved of financial responsibility for wrong 
payment.
    (5) Duties of employees. If a cashier is unable to satisfy himself 
that an applicant for payment is the owner of the order, he should bring 
the case to the attention of his supervisor or the Treasurer.
    (6) Attempts to defraud. Any attempt to defraud should be referred 
to the Treasurer by the cashier.
    (7) Requirements for signatures, etc.--(i) Signature by mark. If 
signature of payee or endorsee is by mark, it shall be witnessed by a 
person who can write, and the witness shall be someone other than the 
Treasurer or paying cashier.
    (ii) Signature different from name on order. Any signature of the 
payee consistent with the name given on the order may be accepted by the 
paying cashier as sufficient, if he is satisfied that it is the genuine 
signature of the payee intended.
    (iii) Signature of officer. An order drawn in favor of a public 
official or officer of a corporation, company, or association, as such, 
may be paid to his successor, if presented by the latter, who, in 
receipting for it, shall be required to indicate in writing the capacity 
in which he acts, thus: ``William Jones, Treasurer, successor to George 
Thompson''.
    (iv) When payee is society or corporation. When the payee is a 
society or corporation, the person who has authority to receive payment 
of money due such payee shall receipt the order in his official 
capacity, and if occasion arises, the Treasurer may require satisfactory 
proof of such authority.
    (v) Stamped signature in receipt. All of the requisite signatures to 
a money order--those of payee, endorsee, or witness to payment--shall be 
written,

[[Page 61]]

preferably in ink; but a stamped signature may be used in place of the 
written signature of payee or agent of payee in receipts on money order 
drawn in favor of or made payable to a firm, corporation, association, 
society, or individual, if beneath it is written the signature of the 
person receiving payment or executing the endorsement. Under no 
circumstances may an endorsement be made by means of a perforating 
device.
    (vi) Signature of agent. The paying cashier shall affix or cause to 
be affixed to the signature of the person receiving payment of a money 
order any such word or words as may be necessary to explain the right of 
such person to collect the amount. For instance, where an order drawn in 
favor of a company is paid to its local manager, the word ``Manager'' 
should appear beneath or opposite his signature to the endorsement.
    (vii) Use of titles. The paying cashier shall not insist on the 
inclusion or the omission of a title or prefix such as ``Dr.,'' 
``Rev.,'' ``Prof.,'' ``Madam,'' or ``Mrs.'' in the signature to an 
order, whether or not the payee is designated by such title or prefix in 
the body of the order.
    (viii) Order presented by payee after being endorsed by others. When 
an order is presented by the payee for payment, it is immaterial what 
endorsements there may be on the order. Payment may be made if the order 
is otherwise regular and there is space for the payee to sign his name 
on the back of the order on or near the line above the word ``Payee'' 
and inconsistent or unnecessary signatures or endorsements may be 
canceled.
    (ix) Substitution by payee or remitter of name written in error. The 
payee or the remitter of an order, but no one else, may substitute any 
other name for one which he has already written by mistake in the body 
of the first endorsement thereon, and payment may be made to the person 
whose name has thus been substituted, if the order is regular in other 
respects.
    (x) More than one payee. Money orders completed by the purchaser to 
show more than one firm or person as payee may be paid to any one of 
them.
    (f) Stolen forms. Money orders issued on stolen forms will not be 
accepted as valid vouchers for disbursements.
    (g) Procedure where duplicate issued. If upon verification, it is 
established that a duplicate has been issued, the cashier to whom the 
order is presented shall write across it with ink the words, ``Canceled-
Duplicate Issued,'' and forward the order to the Chief, Agents Accounts 
Branch for disposition.
    (h) Payment to other than payee--(1) Transfer of money orders--(i) 
By purchaser or payee. The payee or the purchaser of a money order may 
endorse the order to any other person or firm. A money order may not be 
paid to a second person without written transfer or endorsement to him 
by the payee or purchaser in the prescribed form on the reverse side of 
the order, except as provided by paragraphs (h)(i)(ii) and (iii) of this 
section.
    (ii) On power of attorney. A person with power or attorney may cash 
money orders in behalf of the payee who gave him that authority. The 
power of attorney must be filed at the office of payment.
    (iii) On separate written order of payee. When the payee has filed 
with the Treasurer a separate written order authorizing payment to 
another person, and designating that person by name as the one to 
receive payment of and to receipt for any specified order, or for all 
orders payable by the Treasurer to the payee, that person may cash money 
orders on behalf of the payee.
    (2) Upon assignment. When a person or firm makes an assignment, and 
the assignor intends that money orders payable to him will be paid to 
assignee, he should execute a power of attorney to give such written 
order separate from the instrument of assignment, to be filed in the 
Office of the Treasurer. The person designated to receive payment should 
receipt the money order as such, indicating beneath his signature the 
capacity in which he acts.
    (3) On death of payee. A money order belonging to a deceased 
remitter or payee may be paid to the executor or administrator of the 
estate appointed by the court. A certified copy of the appointment shall 
be filed with the Treasurer. If the estate is small and administration 
is not desired, payment

[[Page 62]]

shall be made in accordance with the Panama Canal Code. Whenever a money 
order belonging to a deceased remitter or payee is presented for 
payment, the Treasurer should be informed and payment therefor withheld 
until instructions for payment are received.


    Cross Reference: Laws on succession, see 7 P.C.C. 501, et seq.

    (4) To concern which has ceased to exist. A money order payable to a 
firm, bank, or company which has ceased to exist shall be paid to the 
legal representative thereof.
    (5) To committee or guardian. When a committee, guardian, or other 
person is appointed by a court to act for a person declared incompetent, 
money orders shall not be paid to the ward. All money orders showing the 
ward as payee or endorsed shall be paid only to the committee, guardian, 
or other duly designated person, who shall exhibit to the postmaster the 
authority thus to act for the ward. Such money orders shall be receipted 
in the name of the ward, followed by the signature and legal designation 
of the committee, guardian, or other authorized agent.
    (6) To minor. A money order payable to a minor may be paid to the 
father or mother thereof as natural guardian, unless legal proceedings 
have been instituted which make questionable the claim of the father or 
mother, in which case the facts should be reported to the Treasurer.
    (i) Discrepancies or alterations. If there is any doubt as to the 
particulars on a Canal Zone money order, verification of the order 
should be made with Chief, Agents Accounts Branch.
    (j) Payment of remitter. A money order presented by the remitter may 
be refunded at the Office of the Treasurer upon proper identification.
    (k) Payment of order withheld--(1) Invalid orders. Provisions 
relating to the payment of invalid Canal Zone money orders are contained 
in Sec. 67.16.
    (2) Nonpayment because of fraud--(i) Proof. If the purchaser has 
proof that the order was purchased because of false representations or 
other fraudulent action of the payee, or that the payee is engaged in 
conducting a scheme or device for obtaining money fraudulently through 
the mails, the purchaser may request the Treasurer to withhold payment.
    (ii) Orders forbidding payment. Payment of a money order should not 
be made under any circumstances to a specific person or firm when an 
order has been issued by the Treasurer forbidding payment of money 
orders to such persons or firms.



Sec. 67.16  Period of validity.

    As provided by 2 P.C.C. 1142, 76A Stat. 40, money orders issued by 
the Canal Zone Postal Service may not be paid after 20 years from the 
last day of original issue. Claims for unpaid money orders shall be 
forever barred unless received by the Panama Canal Commission Treasurer 
within such 20-year period. Special authority shall be obtained from the 
Chief, Agents Accounts Branch, to pay or refund a Canal Zone money order 
presented after one year from the last day of the month in which it was 
issued and prior to the expiration of the 20-year period.



Sec. 67.17  Who may receive information.

affidavits or otherwise as Chief, Agents Accounts Branch deems 
sufficient to establish a valid claim to the original order.



Sec. 67.20  Acceptance of application for refund payment.

    (a) An application for refund payment on a money order may be 
accepted by the Chief, Agents Accounts Branch.
    (b) An application for refund payment of a money order alleged to

be issued if the person in whose favor the application is made submits 
evidence in the form of affidavits or otherwise, as the Chief, Agents 
Accounts Branch deems sufficient to establish a valid claim to the 
original order and the original order has not be been paid.
    (c) The complete name and address of the person or firm to whom the

Agents Accounts Branch for disposition.



               Subpart C--Canal Zone Postal Savings System



Sec. 67.31  Purpose and designation of depository.

    The postal savings system was established to provide facilities for 
the deposit of savings at interest with the security of the United 
States Government for repayment. As a result of the discontinuance of 
the Canal Zone Postal Service, effective October 1, 1979, the Treasurer 
of the Panama Canal Commission has been designated as the sole postal 
savings depository.



Sec. 67.32  Scope of this subpart.

    This subpart covers the procedures to be followed in the payment of 
outstanding postal savings certificates and the accounting for such 
transactions.



Sec. 67.33  Retroactive application.

    This subpart applies equally to money orders or deposit orders 
issued in lieu of postal savings certificates prior to September 29, 
1979. Such orders may have been endorsed or were known at various times 
as follows:

``Money Order''--``Deposit Money Order'';
``Non-Transferable Deposit Money Order'';
``Non-Transferable--Payable to Depositor Only'';
``Pay Depositor Only at Office of Issue.''



Sec. 67.34  Applicability of Federal postal laws and regulations.

    The provisions of the postal laws of the United States, and of 39 
CFR, relating to the payment of postal savings certificates, are 
applicable to the Panama Canal Commission, insofar as they are not in 
conflict with the provisions of this subpart.

    Cross Reference: Postal savings system, see 39 U.S.C. 5201 et seq.; 
postal savings, see 39 CFR Part 173.



Sec. 67.35  Care and protection of records.

    All unpaid stubs and any current postal savings statements, records, 
or files relating to unpaid accounts shall be placed and maintained in a 
vault or safe when not actually required for an official transaction. 
All such records

[[Page 64]]

shall be placed in the vault or safe during alerts or disaster periods. 
The Chief, Agents Accounts Branch, shall give this matter his personal 
attention and shall be held accountable for the proper protection of the 
records.



Sec. 67.36  Interest.

    (a) Rate. Postal savings certificates shall bear interest at the 
rate of one-half of one percentum for each period of three full months 
from the date of issue.
    (b) Interest period--(1) ``Three full months''. In computing 
interest, the term ``three full months'' shall be considered as follows:
    (i) If a certificate was issued on the last day of the month, 
interest is due and payable on the last day of the month, regardless of 
the number of days in such month, except that:
    (A) If the last day of the month falls on a Sunday or holiday, 
interest is not payable until the first day of the following month.
    (B) If the certificate was issued February 28, interest is due and 
payable May 28, August 28, etc. Interest on certificates issued August 
31, therefore, would be due and payable November 30, February 28, and 
May 31.
    (ii) If a certificate was issued other than on the last day of the 
month, interest is due and payable three months from the actual date of 
issue.
    (A) If issued January 15, interest is due April 15.
    (B) If issued February 1, interest is due May 1, etc.
    (iii) When the computation of interest results in fraction of a 
cent, the fraction shall be dropped.
    (c) When paid. Interest shall be paid only when the certificate is 
paid.
    (d) This section applies to all outstanding deposit money orders and 
postal savings certificates issued prior to September 29, 1979.

(2 P.C.C. sec. 1134, 76A Stat. 39).



Sec. 67.37  Payment of postal savings certificates.

    (a) On demand at Office of the Treasurer. Upon certification by a 
designated Agents Accounts Branch representative, postal savings 
certificates shall be authorized for payment only to the depositor by 
either cash through the Office of the Treasurer of the Panama Canal 
Commission or by a Panama Canal Commission check. In the case of a joint 
account, the certificates shall be payable to the signature of either of 
the depositors or the survivor. To terminate a joint account, all orders 
payable to the two persons jointly must be presented and cashed.
    (b) In person. The certifcate shall be paid to the depositor on 
proper identification and certification by the designated Agents 
Accounts Branch representative. Payment may be made by cash only at the 
Office of the Treasurer or by a Panama Canal Commission check.
    (c) By mail--(1) Requisites. Withdrawals may be made by mail, if the 
certificates are properly signed by the depositor and forwarded to the 
Chief, Agents Accounts Branch, and he is satisfied as to the identity of 
the depositor.
    (2) Manner of payment. Payment shall be made by check, which shall 
be sent by registered mail. Before mailing the payment, the registry fee 
and postage, shall be deducted.
    (d) Payment of certificates of deceased depositors--(1) Payment to 
representative. After the death of a depositor, certificates in his or 
her favor shall be paid to the duly authorized executor or administrator 
of the estate or other person only upon the authority of the Chief, 
Agents Accounts Branch. When it is known that a depositor has died, the 
stubs should be ``flagged'' and held to the credit of the deceased 
depositor.
    (2) Survivor of joint depositors. After the death of either of two 
joint depositors, when a ``Joint Depositor's Agreement'' has been 
completed, the certificates remaining unpaid become the sole property of 
the survivor and may be paid to the survivor without the authority of 
the Chief, Agents Accounts Branch.
    (e) Payment of certificates to incompetent depositors. In cases of 
mental disability or other legal incompetence of a depositor, the Chief, 
Agents Accounts Branch should contact the General Counsel of the Panama 
Canal Commission for instructions.
    (f) Identification. The person presenting a postal savings 
certificate must identify himself before payment is

[[Page 65]]

made. Section 67.15(e) covering payment of money orders, shall govern in 
the payment of postal savings certificates.



Sec. 67.38  General procedures for payment of postal savings certificates.

    (a) Examination of the certificate. Postal savings certificates 
presented for payment must be validated by the designated Agents 
Accounts Branch representative prior to effecting payment. The 
representative shall examine the certificate and compare it with all 
particulars on the post office stub and the list of outstanding 
certificates to ascertain if the certificate is valid for payment and if 
the certificate is in order. A payment authorization will be prepared 
and forwarded to the Office of the Treasurer.
    (b) Signatures. The certificate shall be signed by the depositor on 
the back in the presence of the Panama Canal Commission cashier who 
shall verify all particulars entered thereon. When in doubt, a signature 
should be verified with that which appears on the corresponding 
application, joint account card or the representative of depositor's 
card (Form 2105). The person presenting the certificate must identify 
himself before payment is made. If a certificate is paid to the wrong 
person through lack of precaution, the paying cashier will be held 
accountable for the amount of the certificate.
    (c) Interest due--(1) Notation of interest. When a certificate is 
paid, the total amount of interest due shall be shown in red ink in the 
``Interest'' block of the certificate and stub of the postal savings 
certificate. When no interest is paid, a straight line in red ink shall 
be drawn across the ``Interest'' blocks. Once the amount of interest is 
written on the certificate, no change or alteration shall be permitted.
    (2) Errors--(i) Underpayment of interest. If an underpayment of 
interest has been made after figures have been entered in the interest 
block on a certificate, paying cashier shall receive a payment voucher 
Panama Canal Commission Form 5128 for cash payment from the depositor 
when the additional amount is paid to him. The payment voucher shall be 
returned to Agents Accounts Branch for their office records. Requests 
for payment by check shall be accomplished on Panama Canal Commission 
Form 3162. The amount of unpaid interest shall not be set aside for the 
depositor pending his response to a notice to call, and credit shall not 
be taken until the short payment has actually been made to the 
depositor.
    (ii) Overpayment of Interest. The Chief, Agents Accounts Branch will 
establish procedures for the recovery of overpayments.
    (d) Date of payment. A clear impression of the Agent's stamp shall 
be placed in proper space on back of the certificate and on the back of 
the corresponding office stub. The date affixed by the cashier shall be 
the actual day of payment.
    (e) Initiating paid certificates. The Chief, Agents Accounts Branch 
shall establish procedures for identifying paid savings certificates, 
specifically as it relates to the original certificates and 
corresponding stub.
    (f) Issuance of duplicate as precluding payment. The original postal 
savings certificate shall NOT be paid under any circumstances if a 
duplicate postal savings certificate was issued prior to September 29, 
1979.
    (g) Filing paid stubs. The stubs of paid certificates shall be filed 
in numerical sequence in a file covering the calendar year in which 
paid.
    (h) Final determination regarding payment. Final determination as to 
whether payment has been properly made on postal savings certificates or 
other evidences of deposit in the postal savings of the former Canal 
Zone Postal Service including duplicates, shall be based upon the 
official records of Agents Accounts Branch.

    Cross Reference: Rate of interest, see Sec. 67.36.



Sec. 67.39  Privacy of accounts.

    Agents Accounts Branch employees shall not disclose the name of any 
postal savings depositor nor give information concerning a particular 
account to any person other than the depositor himself, without specific 
authority from the Chief, Agents Accounts Branch.

[[Page 66]]



Sec. 67.40  Claims.

    (a) Dispute as to ownership or claim by another person. When there 
is any dispute as to the ownership, or when a claim by a person other 
than the depositor is made for payment, the designated Agents Accounts 
Branch representative shall withhold payment authorization of 
withdrawals from the account involved pending instructions from the 
Chief, Agents Accounts Branch.
    (b) Limitations on claims. All claims for payment of any postal 
savings certificate or other evidence of deposit in the postal savings 
system of the former Canal Zone Postal Service issued prior to October 
1, 1979, including duplicates, which are shown by the records in the 
possession of the Agents Accounts Branch to have been duly paid, shall 
be barred if not presented to the Panama Canal Commission within six 
years from the date on which such records show that they were paid.



Sec. 67.41  Disposal of paid postal savings certificates.

    Postal savings certificates or other evidences of deposit in the 
postal savings system of the former Canal Zone Postal Service, including 
duplicates, may be disposed of after the expiration of six years from 
date payment thereon has been made as shown by the records of the Panama 
Canal Commission.



Sec. 67.42  Replacement of certificates.

    Duplicate postal savings certificates shall not be issued after 
September 28, 1979. A postal savings certificate that is lost, stolen, 
destroyed or improperly withheld, shall be paid by cash or check to the 
depositor, in accordance with the procedures established by this 
subpart.



Sec. 67.43  Payment of duplicate certificate.

    A duplicate postal savings certificate issued prior to September 29, 
1979 may be paid at the Office of the Treasurer, under the same 
conditions governing the payment of the original postal savings 
certificate.



Sec. 67.44  Disposition of recovered certificate.

    If, after a duplicate postal savings certificate was issued, the 
depositor reports that he has found the original certificate, he shall 
be instructed to surrender the original certificate. The certificate 
surrendered shall be endorsed with the word ``Canceled'' across its face 
and retained at Agents Accounts Branch as office records.

Sec. 101.1  Signal stations at the Canal entrances.

    The Panama Canal Commission maintains established signal stations at 
both the Atlantic and Pacific entrances of the Canal. A vessel arriving 
at the Canal must communicate with the signal station which is located 
at the entrance of the Canal at which that vessel arrives. Vessels 
required to be equipped with a radiotelephone pursuant to Part 123 of 
this subchapter must, upon arrival, communicate with the appropriate 
signal station on Channel 12, 156.000 MHz. All other vessels may use 
International Code and flashing light. Such stations are also utilized 
to assist in control of traffic within Panama Canal waters.

    Cross Reference: See Part 123 for provisions respecting radio 
communication by vessels prior to arrival and while they are in Panama 
Canal waters.



Sec. 101.2  Boarding of arriving vessels.

    (a) Unless otherwise directed, all arriving vessels will anchor in 
designated anchorages to await instructions. No person other than 
boarding officials of the Panama Canal Commission and the Republic of 
Panama may go on board or leave any vessel until such vessel has been 
entered by the Commission and where applicable, by the Republic of 
Panama.
    (b) Arriving vessels that are subject to inspection for compliance 
with Panama Canal shipping and navigation regulations will normally be 
boarded upon arrival inside the breakwater at the Atlantic entrance of 
the Canal or off the seaward end of the dredged, marked channel at the 
Pacific entrance. When such vessels are not boarded immediately upon 
arrival, they shall anchor in a designated anchorage area and await the 
boarding official. Weather and sea conditions permitting, the boarding 
of vessels may take place outside of these areas. Boarding will be 
performed by a Commission boarding official in accordance with the 
procedures established under this part.
    (c) Admeasurement functions shall be performed on arriving vessels 
either while at anchor or during transit.

3207-0001)

[31 FR 12289, Sept. 16, 1966, as amended at 54 FR 29336, July 12, 1989]



Sec. 103.2  Denial of passage to dangerous vessel.

    The Canal authorities may deny any vessel passage through the Canal 
when the character or condition of the cargo, hull, or machinery is such 
as to endanger the structures pertaining to the Canal, or which might 
render the vessel liable to obstruct the Canal, or whose draft, at any 
part of the vessel, exceeds the maximum allowable draft in the Canal as 
designated from time to time by the Canal authorities.
[31 FR 12289, Sept. 16, 1966]



Sec. 103.3  Discovery of defect in vessel during transit or while under way.

    Upon the discovery during transit of the Canal, or at any time while 
under way, of any defect in a vessel of such serious nature that it 
might interfere with further passage or with her safe navigation, the 
vessel shall stop and, if practicable, be anchored or moored at the 
first available place. A full report shall be made immediately to the 
Canal Operations Captain or his designee by radio or by the best means 
available.
[46 FR 63176, Dec. 30, 1981; 47 FR 54072, Dec. 1, 1982, as amended at 55 
FR 11908, Mar. 30, 1990]



Sec. 103.4  Load and trim.

    (a) A vessel shall not be permitted to transit the Canal if she:
    (1) Has a list of more than 10 degrees;
    (2) Is so tender or otherwise so loaded as to dangerously affect her 
stability or maneuverability; or
    (3) Is so trimmed as to dangerously affect her maneuverability.
    (b) A vessel having a list of between 3 degrees and 10 degrees, or 
which is so loaded or so trimmed as to adversely affect her 
manuverability, may be permitted to transit at the discretion of the 
Canal Operations Captain or his designee. If such vessel is allowed to 
transit, however, it may do so only at its own risk and, to the extent 
and in the proportion that such failure to meet the requirements of this 
section proximately causes or contributes to a casualty and resulting 
damages, the Master of such vessel on behalf of said vessel, her owners, 
operators, or any other persons having any interest in her, and for 
himself, will be considered to have released the Panama Canal Commission 
and the United States from, and to have indemnified them against, any 
loss, damage, or liability incurred by the Commission, or the United 
States under or in respect to:
    (1) Sections 1411 through 1416, inclusive, of Pub. L. 96-70, 93 
Stat. 485-87.
    (2) Property of the Panama Canal Commission or the United States; 
and
    (3) Panama Canal Commission employees under the Federal Employees' 
Compensation Act, 5 U.S.C. 8101, et seq., or any other employee 
compensation system.

The Master of the vessel that fails to meet the requirements of this 
section may be required to execute, in the presence of a Commission 
official, a form undertaking to release the Panama Canal Commission and 
the United States from liability in case of an accident and to indemnify 
the Commission and the United States for any damages sustained. The 
failure of the Master of a vessel to sign such a form, however, will not 
relieve the vessel, her owners, or any other person having an interest 
in her from liability incurred as a result of the vessel's failure to 
meet the requirements of this section.
    (c) Nothing shall be done, or permitted to be done, by the Master or 
any member of the crew, which would alter the trim or draft of a vessel 
while it is transiting the Canal, without the prior, express approval of 
the pilot.

Sec. 103.5  Deck load.

    (a) A vessel carrying a deck load shall have it so stowed as to be 
sufficiently clear to provide safe working space around all chocks, 
bitts, and

[[Page 74]]

other gear used in transiting and so arranged as to not obstruct any 
direct lead from chocks to bitts.
    (b) Vessels may transit with deck cargo protruding over one side not 
to exceed 15.0 feet if the maximum beam, including protrusions, does not 
exceed 85.0 feet. Pursuant to section 1411 of Pub. L. 96-70, 93 Stat. 
485, however, the Commission may not consider any claim for damages on 
account of any injury to such cargo which might be sustained while the 
vessel is passing through the locks of the Canal.



Sec. 103.6  Size and draft limitations of vessels.

    (a) Definitions as used in this section:
    (1) TFW means Tropical Fresh Water of Gatun Lake, density .9954 gms/
cc at 85 deg.F. (Transition to fresh water frequently alters the trim of 
large vessels 3" to 4" by the head.)
    (2) Published TFW maximum draft means the deepest point of immersion 
in Gatun Lake waters as promulgated by the Marine Director, taking into 
account the water level of Gatun Lake and other limitations deemed 
necessary because of restrictions in the Canal.
    (3) Maximum authorized transit draft means the deepest point of 
immersion in TFW of a particular vessel authorized at anytime, Gatun 
Lake level and Canal restrictions permitting.
    (4) Commercial vessel means a self-propelled vessel, other than a 
naval, military or other public vessel.
    (5) Integrated tug-barge combination means a barge that is 
specifically configured to receive a tugboat and with the tug, becomes, 
in effect, a single self-propelled unit.
    (6) Non-self-propelled vessel means a vessel which either does not 
have an installed means of propulsion, or has an installed means of 
propulsion which is not functioning during transit.
    (7) Barge means a flat-bottomed vessel of full body and heavy 
construction without installed means of propulsion.
    (b) Maximum authorized transit draft of vessels with draft in excess 
of 35 feet, six inches.
    (1) Prior to the initial transit of a vessel whose transit draft 
will exceed 35 feet, six inches, owners, operators, or agents must 
supply in full the information required in paragraph (b)(2) of this 
section and request the maximum authorized transit draft for the vessel 
(deepest point of immersion TFW) from the Canal Operations Captain or 
his designee, no later than two weeks prior to loading of the vessel. 
This request will be returned with the approved maximum authorized 
transit draft stamped thereon.
    (2) The information required by paragraph (b)(1) of this section 
shall be submitted in the following format:

  Information Needed Prior to Initial Transit Through the Panama Canal

                            Bilge Information

    Name of vessel -------------------- Date ------
    Authorized Tropical Fresh Water Load Line ------
    Admeasurer ------------ Certified as Correct ------
                                  [Master-Owners--Agents]
    (1) ``A''--Half breadth of vessel to the outside of shell ----------
--
    (2) ``R''--Radius of turn of bilge (Feet & Inches) ------------
    (3) ``DR''--Dead rise at side of vessel (Inches) ------------

[[Page 75]]

    Note: On an off-center lockage with the vessel touching the lock 
wall, the turn of the bilge will clear the lock-wall batters at the most 
critical point as shown in the Table of Limiting Drafts, paragraph 
(d)(3) of this section.
    (c) Draft during initial transit. The initial transit is permitted 
at the maximum authorized transit draft. After the initial transit, 
unless the vessel's agent or owner is notified of any restrictions 
imposed by Canal authorities, this maximum authorized transit draft will 
remain in effect.
    (d) Minimum transit drafts, measured in salt water--(1) All vessels 
transiting the Canal must have sufficient ballast to permit safe 
handling during transit. The following are minimum salt water drafts 
(TSW) for ships anticipating transit:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                  Length                           Minimum drafts

    Example: To find draft of ship having a radius-of-turn-of-bilge of 
4'4" read across top of table to column headed 4' thence down column 
opposite 4 inches--Read 38'5".

    Note: Dead Rise not included in above tabulations and must be added 
to above readings.

    (4) A vessel whose ballast draft does not meet the minimum draft 
requirements established by this section may be accepted for transit on 
a regular basis, provided the vessel operator requests permission and 
submits the following information to the Marine Bureau of the Panama 
Canal Commission: (i) Principal dimensions of the vessel;

[[Page 76]]

(ii) Deepest attainable minimum draft (fore and aft); (iii) Limitations 
on visibility fore and aft from the navigation bridge; (iv) Necessary 
excerpts from the vessel's plans, drawings and maneuvering data that 
relate to the vessel's suitability for transit.
    (5) The vessel will be inspected by the Canal authorities upon its 
first visit after such a request is made. If the vessel is acceptable 
for transit at less than the prescribed minimum draft, the operator will 
be notified that transit on a regular basis is authorized provided the 
vessel meets the special minimum draft that is specified in the notice.
    (6) If the vessel is found not to be acceptable for transit on a 
regular basis, a single transit may be authorized, at the discretion of 
the Canal authorities, subject to the imposition of any special 
conditions that may be required for reasons of safety or continuance of 
regular Canal operations.
    (e) Maximum length. (1) The maximum length overall, including 
bulbous bow, for a commercial vessel acceptable for regular transit is 
950.0 feet, except passenger and container ships, which may be 965.0 
feet in overall length. In order to insure a safe passage, vessels 
exceeding 900.0 feet in overall length, which are transiting the Canal 
for the first time or are newly-modified or newly-constructed vessels, 
are subject to denial of passage pursuant to Sec. 103.2 and to the 
requirement of prior Commission review and approval of vessel plans in 
accordance with Canal regulations.
    (2) The maximum length for integrated tug-barge combination 
acceptable for regular transit is 900.0 feet overall, including the tug. 
A tug-barge combination must transit together as one unit, with the tug 
supplying the propelling power.
    (3) The maximum aggregate overall length for non-self-propelled 
vessels acceptable for transit is 850.0 feet, including accompanying 
tugs. Accompanying tugs must lock through with the non-self-propelled 
vessel.
    (f) Maximum beam--(1) The maximum extreme beam for a commercial 
vessel and the integrated tug-barge combination acceptable for regular 
transit is 106.0 feet.
    (2) In the discretion of the Canal Operations Captain or his 
designee, commercial vessels, including integrated tug-barge 
combinations, having an extreme beam of between 106.0 and 107.0 feet may 
be permitted to transit on a one-time basis only if the deepest point of 
immersion does not exceed 37.0 feet TFW.
    (3) The maximum extreme beam for non-self-propelled vessels (other 
than integrated tug-barge combinations) acceptable for transit is 100.0 
feet.
    (g) Previous approvals and one-time transits. Vessels approved for 
regular transit prior to December 20, 1976 whose maximum length or beam 
slightly exceed the limits set forth in paragraphs (e) and (f) may 
continue to transit on a regular basis. After that date, approval will 
not be given for transit of other commercial vessels whose extreme beam 
exceeds 106.0 feet by any amount, except for vessels transiting on a 
one-time delivery basis.
    (h) Release from liability. If a vessel having a beam in excess of 
106.0 feet is permitted to transit on a one-time basis, such vessel may 
do so only at its own risk and, to the extent and in proportion that 
such failure to meet the requirements of this section proximately causes 
or contributes to a casualty and resulting damages, the Master of such 
vessel, on behalf of said vessel, her owners, operators, or any other 
person having an interest in her, and for himself, will be considerd to 
have released the Panama Canal Commission and the United States from, 
and to have indemnified them against, any loss, damage or liability 
incurred by the Panama Canal Commission or the United States under, or 
in respect to:
    (1) Sections 1411 through 1416, inclusive, of Pub. L. 96-70, 93 
Stat. 485-87;
    (2) Property of the Panama Canal Commission or the United States; 
and
    (3) Panama Canal Commission employees under the Federal Employees' 
Compensation Act 5 U.S.C. 8101, et seq., or any other employee 
compensation system.

The Master of the vessel that fails to meet the requirements of this 
section may be required to execute, in the presence of a Commission 
official, a form undertaking to release the Panama Canal Commission and 
the United

[[Page 77]]

States from liability in case of an accident and to indemnify the 
Commission and the United States for any damages sustained. The failure 
of the Master of a vessel to sign such a form, however, will not relieve 
the vessel, her owners, or any other person having an interest in her 
from liability incurred as a result of the vessel's failure to meet the 
requirements of this section.
    (i) Denial of transit. A vessel shall not be permitted to transit 
the Canal under the following circumstances:
    (1) When the vessel's maximum point of immersion exceeds its maximum 
authorized draft;
    (2) When the vessel's maximum point of immersion exceeds the 
published FW maximum draft then in effect;
    (3) When the length overall, including bulbous bow, exceeds that 
stated in paragraph (e) of this section, unless the vessel was approved 
for regular transit prior to March 16, 1981; or
    (4) When the extreme beam exceeds that stated in paragraph (f) of 
this section by any amount, unless the vessel was approved for regular 
transit prior to March 10, 1981.
    (j) General. (1) Vessels of 100.0 feet beam and over whose list, 
trim or handling characteristics are such as to endanger themselves, 
Panama Canal appurtenances or a third party, may have such further 
limitations placed on them as Canal authorities deem necessary to insure 
reasonable safety.
    (2) The draft of non-self-propelled barges of 550.0 feet or more in 
length may be limited when, in the opinion of Canal authorities, such a 
limit is necessary to insure reasonable safety.
    (3) Non-self-propelled vessels, other than integrated tug-barge 
combinations, will be accepted only on an individual basis; advance 
permission for initial transit as a non-self-propelled vessel is 
required. Displacement of these vessels is limited to 35,000 tons and 
the draft requirements of paragraph (d) of this section are applicable. 
Riding crews must be provided in sufficient numbers, as required by the 
Canal Operations Captain, to safely handle towboat lines and boarding 
ladders, and to assist in mooring.
    (4) The numerous constraints affecting the transit schedules of 
vessels and tows make it important that information provided in advance 
of the initial transit of a vessel include a capacity plan, general 
arrangement plans, engine room plans, and whenever possible, a 
photostatic copy of national register, load line certificate and Panama 
Canal tonnage certificate. This advance information will minimize the 
time spent aboard the vessel by Panama Canal officials before 
commencement of the initial transit.

Sec. 103.7  Authority to deny transit.

    A vessel's transit may be denied until, in the opinion of the Canal 
authorities, its tenderness, trim, list, draft, cargo, hull, machinery, 
and equipment have been put into such condition as will make the vessel 
safe for her passage through the Canal. No claim shall be allowed or 
considered because of any such delay.
[54 FR 43962, Oct. 30, 1989]



Sec. 103.10  Vessels required to be equipped with certain indicators.

    (a) All vessels in excess of 150 feet in length shall be equipped 
with properly operating rudder-angle and engine-revolution indicators in 
the wheelhouse so located and illuminated as to be readily visible to a 
pilot.
    (b) All vessels with beams in excess of 80 feet shall be equipped 
with properly operating rudder-angle and engine-revolution indicators in 
the wheelhouse and on each bridge wing so located and illuminated as to 
be readily visible to a pilot.
    (c) All vessels in excess of 150 feet in length which are equipped 
with variable pitch propellers shall have properly operating pitch 
indicators in the wheelhouse so located and illuminated as to be readily 
visible to a pilot.
    (d) All vessels with beams in excess of 80 feet which are equipped 
with variable pitch propellers shall have properly operating pitch 
indicators in the wheelhouse and on each bridge wing so located and 
illuminated as to be readily visible to a pilot.

[[Page 78]]

    (e) Any vessel which fails to meet the requirements of this section 
may be denied transit. If the Canal authorities decide that a vessel can 
be handled without undue danger to equipment or to personnel, 
notwithstanding her failure to comply with other requirements of this 
section, and permit her to transit, such vessel may do so only at its 
own risk and, to the extent and in the proportion that such failure to 
meet the requirements of this section proximately causes or contributes 
to a casualty and resulting damages, the Master of such vessel, on 
behalf of said vessel, her owners, operators or any other persons having 
any interest in her, and for himself, will be considered to have 
released the Panama Canal Commission and the United States from, and to 
have indemnified them against, any loss, damage or liability incurred by 
Panama Canal Commission or the United States under, or in respect to:
    (1) Sections 1411 through 1416, inclusive, of Pub. L. 96-70, 93 
Stat. 485-87;
    (2) Property of the Panama Canal Commission or the United States; 
and
    (3) Panama Canal Commission employees under the Federal Employees' 
Compensation Act, 5 U.S.C. 8101, et seq., or any other employee 
compensation system.

The Master of the vessel that fails to meet the requirements of this 
section may be required to execute, in the presence of a Commission 
official, a form undertaking to release the Panama Canal Commission and 
the United States from liability in case of an accident and to indemnify 
the Commission and the United States for damages sustained. The failure 
of the Master of a vessel to sign such a form, however, will not relieve 
the vessel, her owners, or any other person having an interest in her 
from liability incurred as a result of vessel's failure to meet the 
requirements of this section.
[40 FR 8348, Feb. 27, 1975, as amended at 41 FR 21775, May 28, 1976; 46 
FR 63179, Dec. 30, 1981]



Sec. 103.11  Vessels without mechanical signal system to engine room subject to delay in transiting.

    (a) A vessel that is not equipped with a properly operating 
mechanical system of signals between the pilot house and the engine 
room, as recommended under paragraph (b) of this section, is subject to 
delay in transiting to the extent the Canal authorities deem necessary 
or appropriate in order to minimize, in the light of the type and volume 
of Canal traffic and of other factors relating to the safety of Canal 
operations, the increased hazards of navigation resulting from failure 
of the vessel to be so equipped.
    (b) It is recommended that every vessel have a mechanical system of 
signals between the pilot house and the engine room. Any such system 
should return the engine order to the pilot house. If the signal system 
is by bells the vessel should have a tube, of proper size, so arranged 
as to return the sound of the bell signals to the pilot house, and 
should also be provided with a speaking tube or other device for the 
purpose of conversation between the pilot house and engine room. If the 
signal system is by engine room telegraph it should be capable of 
repeating the order back to the pilot house.
[31 FR 12289, Sept. 16, 1966]



Sec. 103.12  Discharge of firearms.

    No firearms of any kind may be discharged from vessels while in 
Canal waters, except that authorized salutes by vessels of war will be 
permitted by prior arrangement with Canal authorities.



Sec. 103.13  Firing of salutes.

    Vessels of war may not fire salutes while at a Commission dock, in 
the locks, or in Gaillard Cut.



Sec. 103.14  Colors and house flags.

    During daylight, vessels in Canal waters shall display their colors 
and house flags.



Sec. 103.15  Boarding vessels at anchor or underway.

    Except for members of the Canal boarding party, pilots, Republic of 
Panama boarding officials, and agents, in the performance of their 
official duties, and such other persons as may be authorized by Canal 
authorities, no person, with or without the consent of the Master, may 
board a vessel at anchor or underway in the Canal waters.

[[Page 79]]



Sec. 103.16  Meals to be furnished by vessel in certain cases.

    Vessels shall furnish meals to Panama Canal pilots without charge 
during the ship's regular meal hours and shall furnish a meal to the 
pilot between 2200 hours and 0400 hours if the vessel is transiting the 
Canal during such hours. In addition, vessels shall provide meals 
without charge during the ship's regular meal hours to any other Panama 
Canal Commission personnel, other than linehandlers, whose assignment 
will require them to be aboard the vessel for four or more hours. If a 
vessel is unable to furnish such meals, they may be furnished by the 
Panama Canal Commission at the expense of the vessel.



Sec. 103.17  Boat for handling lines.

    A vessel shall keep at least one boat ready for lowering, for the 
purpose of handling lines.
[31 FR 12289, Sept. 16, 1966]



Sec. 103.18  Pilot ladders, hoists and side ports.

    (a) A vessel shall, weather permitting, have both an accommodation 
ladder and a pilot ladder rigged and ready for use upon arrival in Canal 
waters.
    (b) The pilot ladder shall be constructed and rigged in accordance 
with Regulation 17, Chapter V, International Convention for Safety of 
Life at Sea, 1974, TIAS 9700, except that:
    (c) When the distance from the water line to the point of access of 
the vessel exceeds nine meters or 30 feet, a combination pilot ladder 
and short brow accommodation ladder must be provided for boarding 
purposes.
    (d) A mechanical pilot hoist may be used for boarding officials and 
pilots only at their discretion, and provided that the design and 
construction of the hoist and ancillary equipment are in accordance with 
Regulation 17, Chapter V, International Convention for Safety of Life at 
Sea, 1974.
    (e) When a mechanical pilot hoist is used, a ring buoy fitted with a 
lifeline and self-igniting light shall be available and ready for 
immediate use. The pilot ladder required by Sec. 103.18(a) shall be in 
close proximity to the pilot hoist, ready for immediate use but lashed 
up so as not to interfere with the pilot hoist.
    (f) When the side ports are used for boarding, the minimum vertical 
distance between the waterline and the bottom of the side port at any 
draft shall be six feet.



Sec. 103.19  Requirement for pilot shelter platforms.

    (a) Any vessel that, in accordance with Panama Canal operation 
standards, is required to have three or more pilots aboard, shall 
provide suitable pilot shelter platforms for the assisting pilots. The 
purpose for the pilot platforms is to provide shelters from sun and rain 
for pilots working near the bow or the stern of a vessel and to provide 
adequate visibility around the locks in order to reduce the danger of 
damage. In general, this bow/stern pilot shelter platforms are required 
on ships of 190.5 meters (625 feet) or more in length and a beam of 30.5 
meters (100 feet) or greater. They may also be required on certain 
smaller ships that the Marine Director or his designated representative 
determine require three or more pilots. Those vessels requiring shelters 
shall provide them for use no later than six months from the effective 
date of the final rule.
    (b) The following is a sketch of a simplified pilot platform which 
is acceptable to the Panama Canal Commission:

[[Page 80]]

[GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TC02NO91.001


    (c) Each platform is to be erected over the furthest forward point 
of the extreme beam at the waterline and not more than six inches from 
the vertical plane of shell plating. For vessels of unorthodox design 
requiring aft platforms, they shall be erected at a position which is 
approximately over the aftermost point of extreme beam at the waterline 
and not more than six inches inboard from the vertical plane of shell 
plating.
    (d) In addition to the pilot shelter platforms required by paragraph 
(a) of this section for assisting pilots, all vessels whose extreme beam 
is 24.4 meters (80 feet) or more, are required to provide bridge wing 
shelters for the protection of control pilots. The following is a sketch 
of a bridge wing shelter that is acceptable to the Panama Canal 
Commission. Alternate arrangements, including portable shelters, which 
provide equivalent or better protection and visibility may be 
acceptable.

[[Page 81]]

[GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TC02NO91.002


    (e) The purpose of the bridge wing shelter is to provide protection 
for pilots from sun and rain, while allowing maximum visibility around 
the locks. On vessels that have a raised conning station at the edge of 
the bridge wing more than 30 centimeters (1 foot) above the deck level, 
the height of the awning should be raised accordingly. Awnings are to 
extend at least 1.52 meters (5 feet) inboard from the outboard edge of 
the bridge wing. Similarly, their fore-and-aft dimension is to be at 
least 1.52 meters (5 feet), extending aft from the forward part of the 
bridge wing. If ship control equipment (engine, rudder or thruster 
controls, etc.) are located on the bridge wings, these

[[Page 82]]

shelters must also extend at least one foot beyond such equipment but 
must not extend beyond the outboard edge of the bridge wing.
    (f) The awnings indicated in the sketches in paragraphs (b) and (d) 
of this section are to be made of suitable material to provide shelter 
from sun and rain. The decks of the pilot shelter platforms are to be 
made of wood or other material with a non-skid surface.

Sec. 103.20  Disabling of engines.

    Except when specifically authorized by the Canal authorities, no 
vessel at any dock or mooring within Canal waters shall have its engines 
disabled or otherwise rendered inoperative.



Sec. 103.21  Precautions against emission of sparks, smoke or noxious gases.

    Vessels in Canal waters shall take all necessary precautions to 
avoid the issuance of sparks, excessive smoke, or noxious gases.



Sec. 103.25  Fishing or placing of nets or other obstructions prohibited.

    No fishing nets or other obstructions shall be placed in any of the 
navigable waters of the Panama Canal. Fishing boats shall not anchor for 
the purpose of fishing nor haul nets or trawls in the anchorages or 
navigable channels of the Canal. Fishing from small craft in the 
anchorages or navigable channels of the Canal is prohibited.

Sec. 103.28  Towing of certain vessels required.

    A vessel arriving at an entrance to the Canal and having a mean 
draft in excess of that allowed under the Load Line Regulations for the 
tropical zone, applicable for the voyage on which the vessel is engaged, 
as determined by the American Bureau of Shipping, Lloyd's Register or 
other acceptable certifying agency, is required to take the services of 
a Panama Canal tug or tugs from the Pacific entrance Channel Buoys 1 and 
2 to Gamboa Reach, from the north end of Gatun Locks to Buoy 3 in the 
Atlantic harbor, and vice versa. However, in the instances where the 
overdraft is negligible, the assignment of a tug or tugs may be waived 
at the discretion of the Canal Operations Captain or his designee. Any 
vessel without mechanical motive power, or the machinery of which is or 
becomes disabled, or which steers badly, or which is liable to become 
unmanageable for any reason, shall be towed through the Canal. The Canal 
authorities may require any vessel to take a tug or tugs through 
Gaillard Cut, in the approaches to the locks, or in any other part of 
the Canal, when in their judgment such action is necessary to insure

[[Page 83]]

reasonable safety to the vessel or to the Canal and its appurtenances. 
The tug service in any of these cases shall be chargeable to the vessel. 
The Master of a vessel which steers badly, or which is liable to become 
unmanageable for any reason, shall report such fact and request the 
services of a tug.

steps must be provided.
    (6) The working area near chocks and bitts on all dead tows must be 
clear of obstructions and fitted with safety rails or lines at the 
vessel's sides.
    (b) Transit requirements. (1) Tows must provide a pilot shelter with 
a clear view forward, on the center line, approximately midway between 
the bow and stern. This shelter may be permanent or portable, but must 
protect the pilot from the elements. All tows with a beam in excess of 
79.9 feet shall provide, in addition to the center line shelter, pilot 
shelters at the extreme beams from which the pilots may readily view the 
vessel's sides.
    (2) Dead tows must be equipped with the chocks and bitts as set 
forth in Sec. 109.6 of this chapter.

room bell book shall consist of a contemporaneous record of each engine 
order and the time it is received in the engine room.
    (b) No vessel is required to maintain any bell books if equipped 
with a serviceable automatic device which produces a permanent, legible 
record of every engine order transmitted from the bridge and the time of 
every transmission, plus the response and time of the response of the 
engine room to the engine order.
    (c) The bell books and automatic recording referred to in paragraphs 
(a) and (b) of this section, the record of an automatic course recording 
device, if one is available, and any log books must be surrendered, upon 
request, to the pilot or to the Board of Local Inspectors or other Canal 
authorities for the purpose of inspection and reproduction.

    Source: 62 FR 48179, Sept. 15, 1997, unless otherwise noted.



Sec. 104.1  Applicability and scope.

    Subject to the limitations imposed by Article III of the 1901 Treaty 
to Facilitate the Construction of a Ship Canal, entered into by the 
United

[[Page 86]]

States and Great Britain, and by Articles II and VI of the 1977 Treaty 
concerning the Permanent Neutrality and Operation of the Panama Canal, 
between the United States and the Republic of Panama, and subject to 
compliance with the provisions of this part, the Panama Canal Vessel 
Transit Reservation System allows vessels, including certain commercial 
passenger vessels, desiring transit of the Panama Canal, to reserve 
transit slots in advance of arrival at the Canal and be moved through 
the Canal on pre-assigned dates.



Sec. 104.2  Definitions.

    (a) Booked for transit means that a vessel, in advance of arriving 
at the Canal, has been assigned a specific date by Canal authorities on 
which it will be moved through the Canal and that the vessel has 
otherwise complied with the provisions of this part.
    (b) Commercial passenger vessel means a vessel that principally 
transports passengers, as opposed to cargo, and runs on fixed published 
schedules.
    (c) Regular transit means movement through the Canal of a vessel 
that has not been booked for transit.
    (d) Required arrival time means the date and the hour of the day 
established by Canal authorities as the deadline by which a vessel 
booked for transit must arrive at a terminus of the Canal in order to 
transit on its reserved transit date.
    (e) Vessel agent means a person or entity that has been authorized 
by a vessel owner or operator, in the manner prescribed by Canal 
authorities, to book vessels for transit in accordance with this part.



Sec. 104.3  Booking periods; allocation of reserved slots.

    (a) Vessel agents only may request reserved transit slots for 
vessels during the following booking periods:
    (1) First period--365 to 22 days prior to the requested transit 
date.
    (2) Second period--21 to 4 days prior to the requested transit date.
    (3) Third period--3 to 2 days prior to the requested transit date.
    (b) A total of 21 reserved transit slots will be made available for 
all three booking periods, allocation of which among the booking periods 
is to be determined by Canal authorities. Canal authorities, from time 
to time, may adjust the total number of available reserved transit 
slots, commensurate with continued safe and efficient operation of the 
Canal.



Sec. 104.4  Booked transits.

    (a) The specific daily order of vessels and mix of vessel types 
transiting the Canal, whether booked or regular transits, shall be 
determined by Canal authorities. Except as provided in this part, a 
vessel booked for transit may not transit prior to its reserved transit 
date, unless Canal authorities determine that assigning the vessel an 
earlier transit slot would not impair safe and efficient operation of 
the Canal.
    (b) Notwithstanding assignment of an earlier reserved transit slot 
by Canal authorities, all vessels booked for transit will be charged the 
prescribed booking fee.
    (c) Substitution of reserved transit slots between or among vessels 
booked for transit will be permitted only on conditions specified by 
Canal authorities.



Sec. 104.5  Passenger vessel preference; priority transits.

    (a) Subject to being booked for transit and to the extent Canal 
authorities determine preference does not impair safe and efficient 
operation of the Canal, commercial passenger vessels running on fixed 
published schedules will be given preference over other vessels in 
transiting.
    (b) Notwithstanding any contrary provision, from time to time, any 
vessel, whether or not subject to the vessel transit reservation system 
(including, but not limited to certain warships), as determined by Canal 
authorities, may be moved through the Canal on a priority basis.



Sec. 104.6  Booking fees.

    (a) The booking fee for reserving a transit slot for a vessel 
measured in accordance with Sec. 135.13(a) of this chapter, shall be 
$0.26 per PC/UMS Net Ton, or $1500, whichever is greater.
    (b) The booking fee for reserving a transit slot for a vessel 
subject to transitional relief measures and measured

[[Page 87]]

in accordance with Sec. 135.13(b) of this chapter, shall be $0.23 per 
Panama Canal Gross Ton, as specified on the last tonnage certificate 
issued to the vessel by Canal authorities between March 23, 1976 and 
September 30, 1994, inclusive, plus $0.26 per PC/UMS Net Ton of on-deck 
capacity, or $1500, whichever is greater.
    (c) Whenever the total number of vessels awaiting transit at both 
termini of the Canal is projected by Canal authorities to be, within 2 
days, 90 or more vessels for at least 2 consecutive days, any vessel 
booked for transit that transits the Canal while this condition is in 
effect, shall automatically be assessed a booking fee of $0.69 per PC/
UMS Net Ton, or $4000, whichever is greater.
    (d) Notwithstanding the provisions of paragraph (c) of this section 
or any other contrary provision of this part, Canal authorities will 
guarantee a vessel booked for transit, a reserved transit slot at the 
booking fee rate in effect at the time the vessel is booked for transit, 
irrespective of any premium booking fee rate that may be in effect at 
the time the vessel actually transits the Canal.



Sec. 104.7  Penalties.

    (a) The reserved transit slot of a vessel booked for transit will be 
canceled by Canal authorities and a penalty fee assessed in a sum equal 
to the prescribed booking fee, or $1500, whichever is greater, in the 
following situations:
    (1) When a vessel that is subject to transit restrictions (e.g., 
clear cut, clear cut daylight) has been booked for transit and does not 
arrive at a terminus of the Canal by 0200 hours of the day of the 
scheduled transit;
    (2) When a vessel that is not subject to transit restrictions has 
been booked for transit and does not arrive at a terminus of the Canal 
by 1400 hours of the day of the scheduled transit; or
    (3) When a vessel booked for transit arrives on time but cannot or, 
at the vessel operator's election, does not transit as scheduled, 
despite the readiness of Canal authorities to proceed.
    (b) Canal authorities may waive assessment of a penalty fee if the 
vessel agent presents acceptable proof that late arrival of the vessel 
was due to a medical or humanitarian emergency arising during the 
voyage, or a naturally occurring, extraordinary phenomenon or event of 
major proportions that could not have been reasonably predicted in 
advance.
    (c) Failure of the vessel agent to provide complete and accurate 
information required by Canal authorities when requesting transit 
bookings may result in rejection of the booking request or cancellation 
of the vessel's reserved transit slot.
    (d) When a vessel's reserved transit slot is canceled, and unless 
otherwise directed by the vessel agent, upon arrival, Canal authorities 
will re-schedule the vessel for regular transit.



Sec. 104.8  Re-scheduling.

    (a) Except as otherwise provided and without the vessel booked for 
transit being assessed a penalty fee, the vessel agent may request 
cancellation of a vessel's reserved transit slot and rescheduling of the 
vessel for regular transit or, alternatively, may request assignment of 
an alternate reserved transit slot, in the following situations:
    (1) If for whatever reason Canal authorities cancel the transit of a 
vessel booked for transit that is otherwise ready to proceed as 
scheduled; or
    (2) If for whatever reason Canal authorities delay the transit of a 
vessel booked for transit to such a degree that the delay is likely to 
cause the vessel to be unable to meet its required arrival time for a 
later, second reserved transit, booked before the delay of the first 
reserved transit occurred.
    (b) A vessel booked for transit will be deemed to have transited the 
Canal on its reserved transit date if the vessel arrives at the first 
set of locks at either terminus of the Canal prior to 2400 hours that 
day and its in-transit time (ITT) is 18 hours or less. ITT begins when 
the vessel enters the first set of locks at either Canal terminus and 
ends when the vessel departs the last set of locks at the opposite 
terminus. No booking fee will be charged if, due to events that are 
beyond the control of the vessel booked for transit, as determined by 
Canal authorities, ITT exceeds 18 hours; except that this provision 
shall not apply in the case of a

[[Page 88]]

turn-around transit, where the vessel enters and exits the same set of 
locks at either Canal terminus.



Sec. 104.9  Cancellations.

    (a) A vessel agent may cancel the transit reservation of a vessel by 
giving notice prescribed by Canal authorities. In such event, and except 
as otherwise provided, a cancellation fee will be charged. The amount of 
the fee will depend on the amount of notice (days or hours) received by 
Canal authorities in advance of the vessel's required arrival time, 
according to the following schedule:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Notice periods (in advance of required        Cancellation fee (the
               arrival time)                         greater of)
------------------------------------------------------------------------
31 to 364 days............................  10% of booking fee or $500.
22 to 30 days.............................  40% of booking fee or $750.
4 to 21 days..............................  60% of booking fee or $1000.
3 days to 8 hours.........................  80% of booking fee or
                                             $1,250.
Less than 8 hours.........................  100% of booking fee.
------------------------------------------------------------------------

    (b) Receipt of notice of cancellation of a transit reservation by 
Canal authorities after the vessel's required arrival time will result 
in levy of a cancellation fee equal to the entire prescribed booking 
fee.



Sec. 104.10  Regular transits.

    Vessels that are not booked for transit will be scheduled for 
movement through the Canal on the date and in the order determined by 
Canal authorities. In establishing the daily schedule of vessels to be 
moved through the Canal, the order in which vessels arrive is only one 
of several considerations. In general, regular transits will equal or 
exceed in number, one-half the total number of daily vessel transits.



Sec. 104.11  Temporary suspension of system.

    (a) Canal authorities may temporarily suspend, in whole or in part, 
for whatever period of time deemed necessary, the vessel transit 
reservation system established by this part, whenever Canal authorities 
determine that such action is necessary to ensure continued safe and 
efficient operation of the Canal.
    (b) No penalty or fee will be levied against any vessel booked for 
transit whose reserved transit slot is canceled by reason of a temporary 
suspension of the system pursuant to this section.



Sec. 104.12  Further implementation.

    (a) To facilitate safe and efficient operation of the system, Canal 
authorities may establish additional policies and procedures, define 
additional terms and issue clarifications and interpretations not 
inconsistent with the provisions of this part. Such further 
implementation will be published and distributed to Canal customers 
through notices to shipping or other appropriate means determined by 
Canal authorities.
    (b) In the event any provision of this part conflicts with any 
implementation provision issued pursuant to this section, the provisions 
of this part shall govern.

Sec. 105.1  Pilots required.

    (a) Except as provided by Secs. 105.2, 105.3, and 105.7 or by 
paragraph (c) of this section, no vessel shall pass through, enter or 
leave the Canal, or maneuver in the Canal or waters adjacent thereto, 
including the ports of Cristobal and Balboa, without having a Panama 
Canal pilot on board.
    (b) Normally a vessel will, unless advised to the contrary by the 
Canal Operations Captain or his designee, be boarded by the Panama Canal 
pilot inside the breakwater at a point north of the Mole Beacon at the 
Atlantic entrance and in the Merchant Vessel Anchorage to seaward of 
Buoys 1 and 2 at the Pacific entrance.
    (c) In conformity with past practice, vessels anchored in Anchorage 
Area C and Anchorage Area F, as shown in the

[[Page 89]]

Pilot Handbook, Limon Bay Chart, may proceed to sea without a Panama 
Canal Pilot on board. All such vessels, prior to getting under way, must 
obtain permission to depart from the Cristobal Signal Station.
    (d) Whenever the Administrator finds there is a critical shortage of 
certified Panama Canal pilots available for movement of vessels in Canal 
waters, he may suspend the rule on compulsory pilotage set out in 
paragraph (a) of this section. The Administrator shall impose such 
conditions upon the suspension of the rule, with respect to any given 
vessel, as are reasonable and appropriate to protect human life and 
property and to safeguard the facilities of the Panama Canal.

Sec. 105.2  Exemptions from compulsory pilotage.

    The following vessels are exempt from compulsory pilotage, except 
when the Canal Operations Captain or his designee considers a pilot 
necessary; nevertheless a pilot will be furnished any such exempted 
vessel if requested by the commanding officer or Master thereof:
    (a) Local craft such as United States Army and United States Navy 
minesweepers, landing craft, patrol boats and tugs, and Panama Canal 
Commission tugs and equipment, except as limited by paragraph (c) of 
this section.
    (b) Any vessel that makes frequent calls to Canal waters and whose 
current officers and crew are, in the opinion of the Canal Operations 
Captain or his designee, capable, by reason of such frequent calls and 
otherwise, of safely navigating within Canal waters and are so 
certified, except as limited by paragraph (c) of this section.
    (c) Vessels and craft enumerated in paragraphs (a) and (b) of this 
section may be permitted to transit the Canal without a pilot when, in 
the opinion of the Canal Operations Captain or his designee, the current 
officers and crew have the necessary experience and ability to make safe 
transit and such transit is specifically approved. Whenever any such 
vessel or craft makes transit without a pilot, the Canal Operations

vessels of less than 75 feet beam, two single chocks may be substituted 
for each double chock required by this subsection; on vessels of over 75 
feet beam, two double chocks may be substituted for each double chock 
required by this section. If such substitution is made, the chocks shall 
be placed port and starboard not more than eight feet abaft the stem or 
10 feet forward of the stern, provided that these chocks are not

[[Page 93]]

more than 10 feet from the center line of the vessel.
    (j) Vessels under 60.06 meters (200 feet) in length and not 
exceeding 9.14 meters (30 feet) in beam shall have a double chock or two 
single chocks at the stem and stern. If the vessel is equipped with the 
two single chocks, they shall be placed, port and starboard, not more 
than eight feet abaft the stem or 10 feet forward of the stern, and not 
more than 10 feet off the center line.
    (k) Vessels 60.96 to 121.92 meters (200 to 400 feet) in length and

extra long lines and/or inefficient leads.
    (o) A vessel not requiring locomotives shall have a chock 
arrangement similar to that described in paragraph (i) of this section, 
except that the chocks need only be single chocks or, if approved by the 
Canal authorities, of lesser strength.
    (p) Any vessel which fails to meet the requirements of this section 
may be denied transit. If the Marine Director or his representative 
decides that such a vessel can be handled without undue danger to 
equipment or to personnel, notwithstanding her failure to comply with 
the requirements of this section, and allows it to transit, such vessel 
may do so only at its own risk and, to the extent and in proportion that 
such failure to meet the requirements of this section proximately causes 
or contributes to the casualty and resulting damages, the Master of such 
vessel, on behalf of said vessel, her owners, operators, or any other 
persons having any interest in her, and for himself, will be considered 
to have released the Panama Canal Commission and the United States from, 
and to have indemnified them against, any loss, damage, or liability 
incurred by the Commission or the United States under, or in respect to:
    (1) Section 1411 through 1416, inclusive, of Pub. L. 96-70, 93 Stat. 
485-87;
    (2) Property of Panama Canal Commission or the United States; and
    (3) Panama Canal Commission employees under the Federal Employees' 
Compensation Act, 5 U.S.C. 8101, et seq., or any other employee 
compensation system.

The Master of the vessel that fails to meet the requirements of this 
section may be required to execute, in the presence of a Commission 
official, a form undertaking to release the Panama Canal Commission and 
the United States from liability in case of an accident and to indemnify 
the Commission and the United States for damages sustained. The failure 
of the Master of a vessel to sign such a form, however, will not relieve 
the vessel, her owners,

[[Page 94]]

or any other person having an interest in her from liability incurred as 
a result of the vessel's failure to meet the requirements of this 
section.

electric towing locomotives using steel towing wires. A vessel may be 
permitted to pass through the locks under her own power in the following 
circumstances:
    (1) A small vessel up to 125 feet in length and a towboat up to 150 
feet in length may be handled with their own manila, hemp or synthetic 
lines along the wall if their structure and fendering will permit their 
landing against the wall.
    (2) A small vessel not over 100 feet in length, having good 
maneuvering characteristics, may be handled with her own manila, hemp or 
synthetic fiber lines the center of the chamber.
    (b) A vessel passing through the locks without a Pilot aboard, in 
accordance with the provisions of Sec. 105.2 of this chapter shall be 
under the direction of the Lockmaster, who may authorize the use of the 
vessel's engines in the locks.
    (c) When a vessel has a Pilot aboard, the use of her engines shall 
be under the direction of the Pilot. After towing wires from the towing 
locomotives have been placed aboard a vessel, her engines may be used to 
the extent considered necessary or desirable by the Pilot.

            Conduct of Vessels in Any Condition of Visibility



Sec. 111.4  Application (Rule 4).

    Sections 111.5 through 111.10 apply in any condition of visibility.



Sec. 111.5  Lookout (Rule 5).

    Every vessel shall at all times while under way in the Canal and 
adjacent waters maintain a proper lookout by sight and hearing as well 
as by all available means appropriate in the prevailing circumstances 
and conditions so as to make a full appraisal of the situation and of 
the risk of collision. The person acting as lookout shall have no other 
assigned duties and shall report promptly all relevant and material 
information to the person in charge of the navigation of the vessel.



Sec. 111.6  Safe speed (Rule 6).

    Every vessel shall at all times proceed at a safe speed so that she 
can take proper and effective action to avoid collision and be stopped 
within a distance appropriate to the prevailing circumstances and 
conditions. In determining a safe speed the following factors shall be 
among those taken into account:
    (a) By all vessels:
    (1) The state of visibility;
    (2) The traffic density including concentrations of small craft or 
any other vessels;
    (3) The maneuverability of the vessel with special reference to 
stopping distance and turning ability in the prevailing conditions;
    (4) At night the presence of background light such as from shore 
lights or from back scatter of her own lights;
    (5) The state of wind, sea and current, and the proximity of 
navigational hazards;
    (6) The draft in relation to the available depth of water.
    (b) Additionally, by vessels with operational radar:
    (1) The characteristics, efficiency and limitations of the radar 
equipment;
    (2) Any constraints imposed by the radar range scale in use;
    (3) The effect on radar detection of the sea state, weather and 
other sources of interference;
    (4) The possibility that small vessels and other floating objects 
may not be detected by radar at an adequate range;
    (5) The number, location and movement of vessels detected by radar;
    (6) The more exact assessment of the visibility that may be possible 
when radar is used to determine the range of vessel or other objects in 
the vicinity.
    (c) A vessel shall not exceed the speeds designated below, except in 
an emergency:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                                  Knots

    (d) A vessel in Panama Canal waters at locations other than those 
specified in paragraph (c) of this section, including Gatun Anchorage, 
Bohio Bend, Mamei Curve, Miraflores Lake, and in or near the locks, 
shall not exceed a speed that is safe under the existing circumstances 
and conditions, except in an emergency.

[[Page 97]]

    (e) Whenever a vessel is maneuvering in an area where paragraph (c) 
of this section limits the speed to 6 knots, and the vessel's speed at 
dead slow ahead exceeds 6 knots, she is permitted to proceed at the 
slowest speed possible required to safely maintain manueverability.
    (f) The Canal Operations Captain may authorize departures from the 
maximum speeds established by paragraph (c) of this section in the case 
of particular vessels whose handling characteristics are such as to 
indicate that a higher speed or speeds can be prudently allowed.
    (g) Paragraph (c) of this section does not apply to motorboats or to 
vessels of the Panama Canal Commission. Nevertheless, motorboats and 
vessels of the Panama Canal Commission when underway shall proceed at a 
speed which is reasonable under the circumstances and conditions and 
which does not create a hazard to life or property.
[48 FR 52704, Nov. 22, 1983, as amended at 55 FR 11909, Mar. 30, 1990]



Sec. 111.7  Risk of collision (Rule 7).

    (a) Every vessel shall use all available means appropriate to the 
prevailing circumstances and conditions to determine if risk of 
collision exists. If there is any doubt, such risk shall be deemed to 
exist.
    (b) Proper use shall be made of radar equipment if fitted and 
operational.
    (c) Assumptions shall not be made on the basis of scanty 
information, especially scanty radar information.
    (d) In determining if risk of collision exists the following 
considerations shall be among those taken into account:
    (1) Such risk shall be deemed to exist if the compass bearing of an 
approaching vessel does not appreciably change;
    (2) Such risk may sometimes exist even when an appreciable bearing 
change is evident, particularly when approaching a very large vessel or 
a tow or when approaching a vessel at close range.



Sec. 111.8  Action to avoid collision (Rule 8).

    (a) Any action taken to avoid collision shall, if the circumstances 
of the case admit, be positive, made in ample time and with due regard 
to the observance of good seamanship.
    (b) Any alteration of course or speed to avoid collision shall, if 
the circumstances of the case admit, be large enough to be readily 
apparent to another vessel observing visually or by radar; a succession 
of small alterations of course or speed should be avoided.
    (c) If there is sufficient sea room, alteration of course alone may 
be the most effective action to avoid a close-quarters situation 
provided that it is made in good time, is substantial and does not 
result in another close-quarters situation.
    (d) Action taken to avoid collision with another vessel shall be 
such as to result in passing at a safe distance. The effectiveness of 
the action shall be carefully checked until the other vessel is finally 
past and clear.
    (e) If necessary to avoid collision or allow more time to assess the 
situation, a vessel shall slacken her speed or take all way off by 
stopping or reversing her means of propulsion.
    (f) When two vessels are proceeding in such directions as to involve 
risk of collision, a power-driven vessel or sailing vessel or motorboat 
that is entering or preparing to enter the main channel of the Canal 
from either side shall not cross the bow of a vessel proceeding in 
either direction along the Canal axis and shall keep clear until the 
vessel proceeding along the Canal axis has passed.



Sec. 111.9  Narrow channels (Rule 9).

    (a) A vessel proceeding along the course of a narrow channel or 
fairway shall keep as near to the outer limit of the channel or fairway 
which lies on her starboard side as is safe and practicable.
    (b) A vessel of less than 20 meters in length or a sailing vessel 
shall not impede the passage of a vessel which can safely navigate only 
within a narrow channel or fairway.
    (c) A vessel engaged in fishing shall not impede the passage of any 
other vessel navigating within a narrow channel or fairway.
    (d) A vessel shall not cross a narrow channel or fairway if such 
crossing impedes the passage of a vessel which can

[[Page 98]]

safely navigate only within such channel or fairway. The latter vessel 
shall use the danger signal prescribed in Sec. 111.34(d) (Rule 34(d)) if 
in doubt as to the intention of the crossing vessel.
    (e)(1) In a narrow channel or fairway when overtaking, the vessel 
intending to overtake shall indicate her intention by sounding the 
appropriate signal prescribed in Sec. 111.34(c) (Rule 34(c)). The 
overtaken vessel, if in agreement, shall sound the same signal. If in 
doubt she shall sound the danger signal prescribed in Sec. 111.34(d) 
(Rule 34(d)).
    (2) This section does not relieve the overtaking vessel of her 
obligation under Sec. 111.13 (Rule 13).
    (f) A vessel nearing a bend or an area of a narrow channel or 
fairway where other vessels may be obscured by an intervening 
obstruction shall navigate with particular alertness and caution.
    (g) Any vessel shall, if the circumstances of the case admit, avoid 
anchoring in a narrow channel.
    (h) When two power-driven vessels are meeting end on, or nearly end 
on, in the Canal in the vicinity of an obstruction, e.g., a dredge, 
drill barge, slide, etc., the vessel whose side of the Canal is clear 
shall have the right-of-way and the other vessel shall hold back and 
keep out of the way until the privileged vessel is clear.



Sec. 111.10  [Reserved] (Rule 10).

               Conduct of Vessels in Sight of One Another



Sec. 111.11  Application (Rule 11).

    Sections 111.12 through 111.18 apply to vessels in sight of one 
another.



Sec. 111.12  Sailing vessels (Rule 12).

    (a) When two sailing vessels are approaching one another, so as to 
involve risk of collision, one of them shall keep out of the way of the 
other as follows:
    (1) When each has the wind on a different side, the vessel which has 
the wind on the port side shall keep out of the way of the other;
    (2) When both have the wind on the same side, the vessel which is to 
windward shall keep out of the way of the vessel which is to leeward;
    (3) If a vessel with the wind on the port side sees a vessel to 
windward and cannot determine with certainty whether the other vessel 
has the wind on the port or on the starboard side, she shall keep out of 
the way of the other.
    (b) For the purpose of this section the windward side shall be 
deemed to be the side opposite to that on which the mainsail is carried 
or, in the case of a square-rigged vessel, the side opposite to that on 
which the largest fore-and-aft sail is carried.



Sec. 111.13  Overtaking (Rule 13).

    (a) Notwithstanding anything contained in Secs. 111.4 through 
111.18, any vessel overtaking any other shall keep out of the way of the 
overtaken vessel, except that within the Canal channel all pleasure 
vessels and craft, even though they are an overtaken vessel, shall keep 
out of the way of transiting vessels and Panama Canal Commission 
floating equipment.
    (b) A vessel shall be deemed to be overtaking when coming up with 
another vessel from a direction more than 22.5 degrees abaft her beam, 
that is, in such a position with reference to the vessel she is 
overtaking, that at night she would be able to see only the sternlight 
of that vessel but neither of her sidelights.
    (c) When a vessel is in any doubt as to whether she is overtaking 
another, she shall assume that this is the case and act accordingly.
    (d) Any subsequent alteration of the bearing between the two vessels 
shall not make the overtaking vessel a crossing vessel within the 
meaning of this part or relieve her of the duty of keeping clear of the 
overtaken vessel until she is finally past and clear.
    (e) Except as specially authorized by the Canal Operations Captain 
or his designee, an overtaking power-driven vessel shall not overtake 
and pass another power-driven vessel in Gaillard Cut, Mamei Curve or 
Bohio Bend between buoys 38 and 40: Provided, however, That this 
paragraph shall not apply where either the overtaking or the overtaken 
vessel is less than 150 feet in length or is a Panama Canal Commission 
power-driven vessel or a

[[Page 99]]

U.S. Army or U.S. Navy local tug, with or without a tow.
[48 FR 52704, Nov. 22, 1983, as amended at 55 FR 11909, Mar. 30, 1990]



Sec. 111.14  Head-on situation (Rule 14).

    (a) When two power-driven vessels are meeting on reciprocal or 
nearly reciprocal courses so as to involve risk of collision each shall 
alter her course to starboard so that each shall pass on the port side 
of the other.
    (b) Such a situation shall be deemed to exist when a vessel sees the 
other ahead or nearly ahead and by night she could see the masthead 
lights of the other in a line or nearly in a line or both sidelights and 
by day she observes the corresponding aspect of the other vessel.
    (c) When a vessel is in any doubt as to whether such a situation 
exists she shall assume that it does exist and act accordingly.
    (d) In the Canal channel every power-driven vessel encountering 
another vessel while proceeding along the line of the channel, shall 
keep to that side of the fairway or mid-channel which lies on its 
starboard side. When two such vessels so proceeding are bound in 
opposite directions, they shall, when it is safe and practicable, be 
governed by paragraph (a) of this section even when, by reason of an 
intervening bend in the channel, their headings are not substantially 
opposite when they first sight each other; and neither of them shall 
alter course to port across the course of the other. Tugs and motorboats 
shall, whenever practicable, keep well over to that side of the Canal 
which is to their starboard when large vessels are passing.



Sec. 111.15  Crossing situation (Rule 15).

    When two power-driven vessels are crossing so as to involve risk of 
collision, the vessel which has the other on her own starboard side 
shall keep out of the way and shall, if the circumstances of the case 
admit, avoid crossing ahead of the other vessel.



Sec. 111.16  Action by give-way vessel (Rule 16).

    Every vessel which is directed to keep out of the way of another 
vessel shall, so far as possible, take early and substantial action to 
keep well clear.



Sec. 111.17  Action by stand-on vessel (Rule 17).

    (a)(1) Where one of two vessels is to keep out of the way the other 
shall keep her course and speed.
    (2) The latter vessel may however take action to avoid collision by 
her maneuver alone, as soon as it becomes apparent to her that the 
vessel required to keep out of the way is not taking appropriate action 
in compliance with this part.
    (b) When, from any cause, the vessel required to keep her course and 
speed finds herself so close that collision cannot be avoided by the 
action of the give-way vessel alone, she shall take such action as will 
best aid to avoid collision.
    (c) A power-driven vessel which takes action in a crossing situation 
in accordance with paragraph (a)(2) of this section to avoid collision 
with another power-driven vessel shall, if the circumstances of the case 
admit, not alter course to port for a vessel on her own port side.
    (d) This section does not relieve the give-way vessel of her 
obligation to keep out of the way.



Sec. 111.18  Responsibilities between vessels (Rule 18).

    Except where Secs. 111.9 and 111.13 (Rules 9 and 13) otherwise 
require:
    (a) A power-driven vessel underway shall keep out of the way of:
    (1) A vessel not under command;
    (2) A vessel restricted in her ability to maneuver.
    (b) A sailing vessel underway shall keep out of the way of:
    (1) A vessel not under command;
    (2) A vessel restricted in her ability to maneuver;
    (3) A power driven vessel, except a motorboat.
    (c) A seaplane on the water shall, in general, keep well clear of 
all vessels and avoid impeding their navigation. In circumstances, 
however, where risk of collision exists, she shall comply with the 
Secs. 111.4 through 111.18 of this subpart.
    (d) Panama Canal floating equipment at work in a stationary position 
shall

[[Page 100]]

have a privileged right to such position, and no passing vessel shall 
foul such equipment or its moorings, or pass at such speed as to create 
a dangerous wash or wake. Floating equipment of the Canal from which 
divers are working, and floating equipment so moored, and vessels under 
repair and in such condition, that a high wash might cause swampage or 
be hazardous to the workmen, shall be passed by all vessels at a speed 
sufficiently slow as not to create a dangerous wash or wake.

               Conduct of Vessels in Restricted Visibility



Sec. 111.19  Conduct of vessels in restricted visibility (Rule 19).

    (a) This section applies to vessels not in sight of one another when 
navigating in or near an area of restricted visibility.
    (b) Every vessel shall proceed at a safe speed adapted to the 
prevailing circumstances and conditions of restricted visibility. A 
power-driven vessel shall have her engines ready for immediate maneuver.
    (c) Every vessel shall have due regard to the prevailing 
circumstances and conditions of restricted visibility when complying 
with the Secs. 111.4 through 111.9 (Rules 4 through 9) of this subpart.
    (d) A vessel which detects by radar alone the presence of another 
vessel shall determine if a close-quarters situation is developing or 
risk of collision exists. If so, she shall take avoiding action in ample 
time, provided that when such action consists of an alteration of 
course, so far as possible the following shall be avoided:
    (1) An alteration of course to port for a vessel forward of the 
beam, other than for a vessel being overtaken; and
    (2) An alteration of course towards a vessel abeam or abaft the 
beam.
    (e) Except where it has been determined that a risk of collision 
does not exist, every vessel which hears apparently forward of her beam 
the fog signal of another vessel, or which cannot avoid a close quarters 
situation with another vessel forward of her beam, shall reduce her 
speed to the minimum at which she can be kept on her course. She shall 
if necessary take all her way off and in any event navigate with extreme 
caution until danger of collision is over.
    (f) Except as provided in paragraph (g) of this section, vessels 
moored or at anchor shall not get underway when, because of atmospheric 
conditions, visibility is less than 1,000 feet and vessels underway in 
such conditions shall anchor or moor as soon as practicable and report 
immediately to the Canal Operations Captain, or his designee by radio or 
other available means.
    (g) Vessels specially equipped to navigate under conditions 
restricting visibility and which have a pilot aboard, and vessels which 
have a pilot aboard and which are assisted by Panama Canal Commission 
vessels which are specially equipped to navigate under such conditions, 
may, at the discretion of the Canal Operations Captain or his designee, 
be navigated when visibility is less than 1,000 feet.

shall be complied with in all weathers.
    (b) The regulations concerning lights shall be complied with from 
sunset to sunrise, and during such times no other lights shall be 
exhibited, except such lights as cannot be mistaken for the lights 
specified in this part or do not impair their visibility or distinctive 
character, or interfere with the keeping of a proper lookout.
    (c) The lights prescribed by this part shall, if carried, also be 
exhibited from sunrise to sunset in restricted visibility and may be 
exhibited in all other circumstances when it is deemed necessary.

to carry the sound signaling appliances prescribed in paragraph (a) of 
this section but if she does not, she shall be provided with some other 
means of making an efficient sound signal.



Sec. 111.34  Maneuvering and warning signals (Rule 34).

    (a) When power-driven vessels are in sight of one another and 
meeting or crossing at a distance within half a mile of each other, each 
vessel under way, when maneuvering as authorized or required by this 
part:
    (1) Shall indicate that manuever by the following signals on her 
whistle: One short blast to mean ``I intend to leave you on my port 
side''; two short blasts to mean ``I intend to leave you on my starboard 
side''; and three short blasts to mean ``I am operating astern 
propulsion'';
    (2) Upon hearing the one or two blast signal of the other shall, if 
in agreement, sound the same whistle signal and take the steps necessary 
to effect a safe passing. If, however, from any cause, the vessel doubts 
the safety of the proposed maneuver, she shall sound the danger signal 
specified in paragraph (d) of this section and each vessel shall take 
appropriate precautionary action until a safe passing agreement is made.
    (b) A vessel may supplement the whistle signals prescribed in 
paragraph (a) of this section by light signals:
    (1) These signals shall have the following significance: one flash 
to mean ``I intend to leave you on my port side''; two flashes to mean 
``I intend to leave you on my starboard side''; three flashes to mean 
``I am operating astern propulsion'';
    (2) The duration of each flash shall be about one second, the 
interval between flashes shall be about one second, and the interval 
between successive signals shall be not less than ten seconds;
    (3) The light used for this signal shall, if fitted, be an all-round 
white light, visible at a minimum range of 5 miles, and shall comply 
with the provisions of Annex I of the 72 COLREGS.
    (c) When in sight of one another:
    (1) A power-driven vessel intending to overtake another power-driven 
vessel shall indicate her intention by the following signals on her 
whistle: one short blast to mean ``I intend to overtake you on your 
starboard side''; two short blasts to mean ``I intend to overtake you on 
your port side''; and
    (2) The power-driven vessel about to be overtaken shall, if in 
agreement, sound a similar sound signal. If in doubt she shall sound the 
danger signal prescribed in paragraph (d) of this section.
    (d) When vessels in sight of one another are approaching each other 
and from any cause either vessel fails to understand the intentions or 
actions of the other, or is in doubt whether sufficient action is being 
taken by the other to avoid collision, the vessel in doubt shall 
immediately indicate such doubt by giving at least five short and rapid 
blasts on the whistle. This signal may be supplemented by a light signal 
of at least five short and rapid flashes.
    (e) If whistles are fitted on a vessel at a distance apart of more 
than 100 meters, one whistle only shall be used for giving maneuvering 
and warning signals.
    (f) When a power-driven vessel is leaving a dock or berth, she shall 
sound one prolonged blast.
    (g) A vessel that reaches agreement with another vessel in a 
meeting, crossing or overtaking situation by using radiotelephone on the 
customary frequencies is not obliged to sound whistel signals prescribed 
by this section, but may do so. If agreement is not reached, then 
whistle signals shall be exchanged in a timely manner and shall prevail.

[[Page 106]]

    (h) When a power-driven vessel or motorboat is approaching a 
pipeline obstrucing the channel, and desires to pass through the gate, 
she shall give a signal of two blasts, namely, one polonged blast 
followed by a short blast, which signal shall be promptly answered by 
the gate tender with the same signal if she is ready to have the 
approaching vessel pass or by the danger signal if it is not safe for 
her to pass. In no case shall the approaching vessel attempt to pass 
until the gate tender signifies by a signal of one prolonged and one 
short blast that the channel is open. The gate tender shall so signify 
as soon as practicable, and the approaching vessel shall answer with a 
similar signal.



Sec. 111.35  Sound signals in restricted visibility (Rule 35).

    In or near an area of restricted visibility, whether by day or 
night, the signals prescribed in this section shall be used as follows:
    (a) A power-driven vessel making way through the water shall sound 
at intervals of not more than 2 minutes one prolonged blast.
    (b) A power-driven vessel under way but stopped and making no way 
through the water shall sound at intervals of not more than 2 minutes 
two prolonged blasts in succession with an interval of about 2 seconds 
between them.
    (c) A vessel not under command, a vessel restricted in her ability 
to maneuver, a sailing vessel and a vessel engaged in towing or pushing 
another vessel shall, instead of the signals prescribed in paragraph (a) 
or (b) of this section, sound at intervals of not more than 2 minutes 
three blasts in succession, namely one prolonged followed by two short 
blasts.
    (d) A vessel restricted in her ability to maneuver when carring out 
her work at anchor, shall instead of the signals prescribed in paragraph 
(g) of this section sound the signal prescribed in paragraph (c) of this 
section.
    (e) A vessel towed or if more than one vessel is towed the last 
vessel of the tow, if manned, shall at intervals of not more than 2 
minutes sound four blasts in succession, namely one prolonged followed 
by three short blasts. When practicable, this signal shall be made 
immediately after the signal made by the towing vessel.
    (f) When a pushing vessel and a vessel being pushed ahead are 
rigidly connected in a composite unit they shall be regarded as a power-
driven vessel and shall give the signals prescribed in paragraph (a) or 
(b) of this section.
    (g) A vessel at anchor shall at intervals of not more than one 
minute ring the bell rapidly for about 5 seconds. In a vessel of 100 
meters or more in length the bell shall be sounded in the forepart of 
the vessel and immediately after the ringing of the bell the gong shall 
be sounded rapidly for about 5 seconds in the after part of the vessel. 
A vessel at anchor may in addition sound three blasts in succession, 
namely one short, one prolonged and one short blast, to give warning of 
her position and of the possibility of collision to an approaching 
vessel.
    (h) A vessel aground shall give the bell signal and if required the 
gong signal prescribed in paragraph (g) of this section and shall, in 
addition, give three separate and distinct strokes on the bell 
immediately before and after the rapid ringing of the bell. A vessel 
aground may in addition sound an appropriate whistle signal.
    (i) A vessel of less than 12 meters in length shall not be obliged 
to give the above-mentioned signals, but, if she does not, shall make 
some other efficient sound signal at intervals of not more than 2 
minutes.
    (j) A pilot vessel when engaged on pilotage duty may in addition to 
the signals prescribed in paragraphs (a), (b) or (g) of this section 
sound an identity signal consisting of four short blasts.



Sec. 111.36  Signals to attract attention (Rule 36).

    (a) If necessary to attract the attention of another vessel, any 
vessel may make light or sound signals that cannot be mistaken for any 
signal authorized elsewhere in this part, or may direct the beam of her 
searchlight in the direction of the danger, in such a way as not to 
embarrass any vessel. Any light to attract attention of another vessel 
shall be such that it cannot be mistaken for any aid to navigation. For 
the purpose of this section the use

[[Page 107]]

of high intensity intermittent or revolving lights, such as strobe 
lights, shall be avoided.
    (b) Under no circumstances shall the rays of a searchlight or any 
other type of blinding light be directed into the pilot house, or in any 
other manner or direction which would interfere with the navigation of 
another vessel.

96-70, 93 Stat. 487.



Sec. 117.1a  Scheduling of investigations.

    (a) Marine-accident investigations shall be scheduled so as to 
afford pilots and other parties in interest a period of time not less 
than that provided below for rest and consultation prior to the 
commencement of an investigation:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
             Relief time                     Time of investigation
------------------------------------------------------------------------
0000-0400...........................  1400-1800 (12 hours minimum)
0400-0800...........................  1600-2000 (12 hours minimum)
0800-1200...........................  1800-2200 (10 hours minimum)
1200-1600...........................  0800 Next Day.
1600-2000...........................  1000 Next Day.
2000-2400...........................  1000 Next Day.
------------------------------------------------------------------------

    (b) The column ``Relief Time'', set out in paragraph (a) of this 
section, indicates the period during which the pilot or other party in 
interest completed the transit during which an accident occurred or the 
time at which he was relieved of duty following the occurrence of an 
accident. The column ``Time of Investigation'', set out in paragraph (a) 
of this section, indicates the earliest time at which the investigation 
may be scheduled. In exceptional cases a departure from this schedule 
may be made, as for example in the case of warships or other vessels 
that have an imperative need to resume the voyage as soon as possible. 
Unless a pilot or other party in interest requests the time provided in 
this schedule, the hearing may be set for an earlier hour.
[32 FR 3830, Mar. 8, 1967]



Sec. 117.1b  Rights of party in interest.

    Any Panama Canal pilot or other individual who is a party in 
interest at a marine-accident investigation may obtain counsel of his 
own choosing, testify in his own behalf, cross-examine witnesses, call 
witnesses, and introduce any relevant evidence. The Board shall advise 
all parties in interest of such rights.



Sec. 117.2  Change in physical status of property affected by accident forbidden.

    In the event of a marine accident or casualty affecting any property 
in Panama Canal waters, or waters adjacent thereto, or any property 
owned or operated by the Panama Canal Commission or the United States, 
which imposes on the Board an obligation to investigate, no change in 
the physical status of the property affected by the accident or casualty 
may be made or permitted prior to inspection by properly constituted 
authority, unless such change in status be imperative in order to 
preserve life or property.

[[Page 117]]



Sec. 117.3  Reports by Board to the Administrator.

    The Board shall submit reports of all marine accident investigations 
conducted by it to the Administrator for approval. Such reports shall 
set forth in detail the facts and circumstances surrounding the accident 
and bearing upon its proximate causation, the nature and extent of the 
injury, and the amount of damages, if any, occasioned by such injury. 
The reports shall include a transcript of the record of the Board's 
investigation, together with its findings and opinions respecting the 
accident. All findings and opinions of the Board shall be rendered by a 
full Board after a review of the entire transcript, even though the 
hearing may have been conducted by a single member of the Board or by a 
two-man Board. Reports of the Board do not become final until they are 
approved by the Administrator.
[63 FR 2142, Jan. 14, 1998]



Sec. 117.4  Reports of accidents by officer in command to Board.

    The Master or other officer in command of a vessel shall, prior to 
the vessel's departure from Panama Canal waters, report in writing to 
the Board any accident involving his vessel in Canal waters that 
resulted in loss of life or serious personal injury or in substantial 
damage to property.

(Approved by the Office of Management and Budget under control number 
3207-0001)

[46 FR 63188, Dec. 30, 1981, as amended at 54 FR 29336, July 12, 1989]



Sec. 117.5  Control of wrecked, injured, or burning vessels.

    When a vessel in the Panama Canal waters goes aground, or is 
wrecked, or is so injured that it is liable to become an obstruction in 
such waters, or is on fire, the Canal Operations Captain shall have the 
right to supervise and direct, or to take complete charge of and 
conduct, all operations which may be necessary to float the vessel, to 
clear the wreckage, to remove the injured vessel to a safe location, or 
to extinguish the fire, as the case may be. The Canal Operations Captain 
may, when necessary, take such action without awaiting the permission of 
the owner or agent of the vessel, and may require the Master of the 
vessel and all persons under his supervision and control to place the 
vessel, and all equipment on board, at the disposal of the Canal 
Operations Captain without costs to the Commission. Unless the Panama 
Canal Commission is subsequently found or determined to be responsible 
for the accident or the condition necessitating action by the Canal 
Operations Captain, the necessary expenses incurred by the Commission in 
carrying out the provisions of this section shall be a proper charge 
against such vessel, her owners and her operators.
[46 FR 63188, Dec. 30, 1981, as amended at 55 FR 11909, Mar. 30, 1990]



Sec. 117.6  Liability of vessel for injury to Canal structures or equipment.

    A vessel, or her owner or operator, shall be held liable for any 
injury to any structure, plant, or equipment of or pertaining to the 
Canal, the Panama Canal Commission or the United States when the injury 
is proximately caused by the negligence or fault of the vessel or its 
master or crew. No vessel shall make fast, or run any line, to any 
marker, buoy, beacon, or other aid to navigation; and a vessel shall so 
navigate as not to strike such aids in passing.

                      Subpart A--General Provisions



Sec. 119.1  License defined; classification and licensing of Masters, mates, engineers, pilots, and motorboat operators.

    (a) The word license when used in this part means a Panama Canal 
Commission license unless specifically identified as one from another 
issuing authority.
    (b) The Board of Local Inspectors shall recommend the classification 
of Masters, mates and engineers of steam and motor vessels owned and 
operated by the Panama Canal Commission, and of operators of U.S. 
Government motorboats operating in Panama Canal waters, excluding 
pleasure craft, and of Panama Canal pilots, and upon such recommendation 
licenses may be issued by the Maritime Operations Director, or by such 
other officer as he may designate. No person shall act or serve as a 
pilot, Master, mate or engineer, or operate said motorboats, unless he 
holds a valid license to do so.



Sec. 119.2  Term of licenses.

    Licenses issued to marine personnel of the Panama Canal Commission 
are granted to such personnel for such periods as they are employed by 
the Commission in a position requiring such license. Annually, all 
marine personnel licensed by the Panama Canal Commission shall have a 
physical examination attesting to their physical condition to perform 
their assigned work. Such examination shall include an examination of 
the applicant's acuity of vision and color sense.



Sec. 119.3  Appeal from action refusing license.

    An applicant for a license as Master, mate, engineer, or pilot, for 
whom the Board of Local Inspectors has refused to recommend such license 
may appeal to the Maritime Operations Director or to such other officer 
as the Maritime Operations Director may designate. The appeal must be 
entered within 15 days after the final action of the Board. Upon the 
appeal, the Maritime Operations Director or other designated officer has 
authority either to grant or to deny the license.

[[Page 119]]



Sec. 119.5  Revocation for parting with license.

    A license shall be immediately revoked if, for any purpose, the 
holder thereof voluntarily parts with its possession, or places it 
beyond his personal control by selling or lending it to, or pledging or 
depositing it with, another person.
[31 FR 12311, Sept. 16, 1966]



Sec. 119.6  Employment of licensed officers.

    Only persons who are actually employed in, or conditionally eligible 
for appointment to, a position subject to licensing under this part, or 
who can establish that they have a bona fide intention to operate a U.S. 
Government local craft within Panama Canal waters, may be issued an 
original license under this part. Renewals may be issued irrespective of 
the employment requirement if, in the judgment of the Maritime 
Operations Director, the likelihood of return to Canal employment or 
other circumstances warrant renewal.
[46 FR 63189, Dec. 30, 1981; 47 FR 54072, Dec. 1, 1982]



Sec. 119.7  Original license defined.

    The first license issue to an applicant shall be considered an 
original license, where the records show no previous issuance of a 
license of the kind concerned to such applicant.
[31 FR 12311, Sept. 16, 1966]



Sec. 119.8  Application form.

    The applicant for a license shall make written application upon the 
form furnished by the Board.
[31 FR 12311, Sept. 16, 1966]



Sec. 119.9  Service records and endorsements.

    (a) Applicants for original licenses or raise in grade of license 
other than motorboat operator, shall present to the Board, to be filed 
with their applications, letters, discharges, or other official 
documents, certifying to the amount and character of their experience 
and names of the vessels on which it was acquired. Certified photostatic 
copies of the aforementioned documents may be accepted.
    (b) The Board shall, when practicable, require an applicant for 
Master's, mate's, pilot's, or engineer's license to have the written 
endorsement of the Master or chief engineer of the vessels upon which he 
has served. Applicants for license as pilot shall have the endorsement 
of at least two licensed pilots as to their qualifications.



Sec. 119.10  Age and literacy requirements.

    To be eligible for examination for any license an applicant must, 
except as provided by Sec. 119.183(b), be at least 21 years of age, and 
have the necessary experience as specified in this part. In addition, an 
applicant for license as pilot, Master, mate, or engineer must have a 
working knowledge of the English language. Proficiency in English will 
be determined by the Supervisory Training Instructor, Language Training 
Program, Office of Personnel Administration. The examination will be 
given in either English or Spanish, according to the choice of the 
applicant.



Sec. 119.11  Knowledge of first aid.

    An applicant for an original license as master, mate, pilot, or 
engineer, may not be examined unless he presents satisfactory evidence 
to the Board that he has completed a course of instruction and passed an 
examination in the principles of first aid administered by an agency 
recognized as competent by the Maritime Operations Director. Possession 
of any valid U.S. Coast Guard license shall constitute satisfactory 
evidence of the applicant's compliance with this requirement.
[43 FR 13380, Mar. 30, 1978]



Sec. 119.12  Physical and experience requirements.

    (a) All applicants for original license must pass a physical 
examination given by a physician recognized by the Commission, and 
present a certificate executed by the examining physician to the Board. 
The certificate shall attest to the applicant's acuity of vision, color 
sense, and general physical condition.

[[Page 120]]

    (b) For original license as master, mate, or pilot, the applicant 
must have either with or without glasses, at least 20/20 vision in one 
eye, and at least 20/40 in the other. An applicant who wears glasses, 
however, must also be able to pass a test without glasses of at least 
20/40 in one eye and at least 20/70 in the other. The applicant's color 
sense shall be tested by an approved method.
    (c) Applicants for original license as engineer shall be examined 
only as to their ability to distinguish the colors red, blue, green, and 
yellow.
    (d) For original license as engineer, the applicant must have either 
with or without glasses at least 20/30 vision in one eye, and at least 
20/50 vision in the other. An applicant who wears glasses, however, must 
also be able to pass a test without glasses of at least 20/50 in one eye 
and at least 20/70 in the other.
    (e) If an applicant is not possessed of the vision, hearing, and 
general physical condition considered necessary, the Board, after 
consultation with the examining physician, may make recommendations to 
the Maritime Operations Director for an exception to these requirements 
if, in its opinion, extenuating circumstances warrant special 
consideration.
    (f) No original license shall be issued to any person unless 25 
percent of the required experience has been obtained within the three 
years immediately preceding the date of application. Such period shall 
include, in addition to the three years specified, any service in the 
Armed Forces of the United States or the Republic of Panama that 
immediately preceded or interrupted the last three years spent by the 
applicant in a civilian status prior to the date of the application. 
When an applicant for a license as engineer does not meet the 
requirement of this paragraph, but is otherwise qualified, the Board may 
examine him and recommend to the Maritime Operations Director that he be 
licensed. In such cases a license may be issued provided the applicant 
has satisfactorily completed a 90-day period as trainee aboard 
applicable equipment of the Panama Canal Commission.
    (g) It is not required that an applicant has obtained his experience 
on United States vessels. Experience on foreign vessels will be given 
due credit.
    (h) An applicant for a license may not be given a grade of license 
higher than that in which he has served. However, this paragraph shall 
not apply to persons qualifying for license under the Panama Canal pilot 
Master and engineer training programs.
    (i) When a qualified person makes application for license it shall 
be the duty of the Board to give the applicant the required examination 
as soon as practicable.
[31 FR 12311, Sept. 16, 1966, as amended at 46 FR 63190, Dec. 30, 1981]



Sec. 119.13  Burden of establishing qualifications.

    Applicants for licenses must establish to the satisfaction of the 
Board that they possess all of the qualifications necessary, such as 
age, experience and character before they shall be entitled to be issued 
licenses.



Sec. 119.14  Applicant to appear for examination.

    (a) Except as provided in paragraph (c) of this section, before an 
original license or raise in grade is issued to any person to act as 
Master, mate, pilot, or engineer, he shall personally appear before the 
Board and pass a written examination, covering such subjects as will 
demonstrate that the applicant has sufficient knowledge of maritime 
matters necessary for the license for which he has applied. A list of 
subjects to be tested may be obtained from the Board.
    (b) Applicants will also be required to pass a practical 
examination.
    (c) Upon the recommendation of the Board that he do so, the Maritime 
Operations Director may, at his discretion, issue an original license 
either without an examination or with an examination covering only 
subjects of a local nature, to an applicant who possesses a currently 
valid marine license issued by a competent national authority and who is 
otherwise eligible under this part.
[46 FR 63189, Dec. 30, 1981; 47 FR 54072, Dec. 1, 1982]



Sec. 119.15  Reexamination.

    An applicant for license who has been duly examined and refused a 
license,

[[Page 121]]

may come before the Board for reexamination at any time thereafter fixed 
by the Board.
[31 FR 12311, Sept. 16, 1966]



Sec. 119.16  Raise of grade.

    (a) Upon the issuance of a license involving a raise of grade, the 
applicant shall surrender the old license to the Board.
    (b) The Board shall, before granting a raise of grade of license, 
require the applicant to make written application on a prescribed form.
    (c) The grade of a license as Master, mate, or pilot may not be 
raised except upon the certificate of a physician recognized by the 
Panama Canal Commission, attesting that the color sense of the applicant 
is normal. Applicants for raise of grade of engineer license are not 
subject to this requirement. Nothing herein contained shall debar an 
applicant who has lost the sight of one eye from securing a raise of 
grade of his license if he is qualified in all other respects and his 
vision in his one eye passes the test required for the better eye of an 
applicant having vision in both eyes.
    (d) Applicants for raise of grade of license shall present to the 
Board letters, discharges, or other official documents certifying to the 
amount and character of their experience and the names of the vessels on 
which it was acquired.
    (e) A raise of grade of license may not be granted to any applicant 
unless 25 percent of the required sea service shall have been served 
within the three years immediately preceding the date of application. 
Service in the armed forces of the United States or Republic of Panama 
shall not be counted in computing the three years.
    (f) Sea service acquired prior to the issuance of the license held 
may not be accepted as any part of the service required for raise of 
grade.



Sec. 119.17  Renewal of license.

    (a) Applicants for renewal of master's, mate's, or pilot's license 
shall present evidence of service on waters for which licensed obtained 
within the 3 years next preceding the date of application, or shall 
present evidence of employment in a position closely related to the 
operation of vessels within the same 3-year period. If this requirement 
is not met, the Board shall determine to its satisfaction that the 
licensed officer is thoroughly familiar with the International rules of 
the road or the pilot or special rules applicable to the waters for 
which the applicant is licensed. A written examination may be required 
for this purpose or the applicant may be examined orally and a summary 
of the oral examination placed on the officer's license file.
    (b) A license may not be renewed if title to it has been forfeited 
or if facts which would render renewal improper have come to the 
attention of the Board.
    (c) A 12-month period of grace shall be allowed after the expiration 
date of the license held, during which period it may be renewed. Active 
service in the armed forces or the merchant marine shall not be included 
in computing the period of grace: Provided, however, That this exception 
applies only to such periods of service, or portions thereof, during 
which there was no reasonable opportunity for renewal.
    (d) A license may not be renewed more than 30 days in advance of the 
date of expiration thereof, unless there are extraordinary circumstances 
that justify a renewal beforehand, in which case the reasons must appear 
in detail in the records of the Board.
    (e) A license as Master, mate, or pilot may not be renewed except 
upon the official certificate of a physician recognized by the 
Commission that the color sense of the applicant is normal. Applicants 
for renewal of license as engineer are not subject to this requirement.
    (f) [Reserved]
    (g) Nothing contained herein shall debar an applicant who has lost 
the sight of one eye from securing a renewal of his license, if he is 
qualified in all other respects, and the vision in his one eye passes 
the test required for the better eye of an applicant having sight in 
both eyes.
    (h) An officer making application for a renewal of his license shall 
appear in person before the Board, except in cases where the distance 
from the office of the Board is such as to put the applicant to great 
inconvenience and expense to appear in person. In this

[[Page 122]]

event he may, upon taking the oath of office before a person authorized 
to administer oaths, and upon forwarding the oath, together with the 
license to be renewed, and the written application and certificate of 
visual examination where required, have the license renewed by the 
Board, if a valid reason to the contrary is not known. The Board shall 
attach the oath to the stub end of the license, which is to be retained 
on file in the Board's office.
    (i) If an applicant applies for renewal of his license for the same 
grade, after 12 months after the date of its expiration, he must pass an 
examination for the same grade of license, of such length and scope as 
will, in the judgment of the Board, be sufficient to demonstrate 
adequately the continued professional knowledge of the examinee, except 
that a professional examination shall not be required if the license 
expired during the time of the holder's service with the armed forces or 
the merchant marine, and there was no reasonable opportunity for 
renewal.
[31 FR 12311, Sept. 16, 1966, as amended at 46 FR 63190, Dec. 30, 1981]



Sec. 119.18  Sea service as member of armed forces of the United States or the Republic of Panama or on vessels owned by either nation.

    (a) Sea service as a member of the armed forces of the United States 
or the Republic of Panama will be accepted as qualifying experience for 
an original, raise of grade, or extension of route of license. Such 
service will be subject to evaluation to determine its equivalent to the 
sea service required on merchant-type vessels, and to determine the 
appropriate grade, class, and limit of license for which the applicant 
is eligible. An applicant may be permitted to omit the examination for 
intermediate grades of license if his experience is of such character as 
to qualify him for a higher, or the highest, grade of license.
    (b) If a person who has served in a civilian capacity as commanding 
officer, Master, mate, engineer, or pilot, etc., of any vessel owned and 
operated by the United States or the Republic of Panama, in a service in 
which a license as Master, mate, engineer, or pilot was not required at 
the time of the service, applies for examination for license, the Board 
shall evaluate the time or service and allow appropriate credit 
therefor.



Sec. 119.19  Evaluation of equivalent experience.

    If an applicant presents evidence of service or experience which 
does not meet the specific requirements of these regulations, but which, 
in the opinion of the Board, is a reasonable equivalent thereof, the 
Board may evaluate the experience and allow appropriate credit therefor.
[31 FR 12311, Sept. 16, 1966]



Sec. 119.20  Increase in scope of license; removal of limitations.

    (a) If the Board is satisfied on the basis of documentary evidence 
submitted that an applicant is entitled by experience and knowledge to 
an increase in the scope of his license, the Board may recommend removal 
or modification of any limitations which may have previously been placed 
upon the license.
    (b) A limitation on a license may not be changed before the 
applicant has made up any deficiency in the experience prescribed for 
the license desired and has passed the necessary examination.
[31 FR 12311, Sept. 16, 1966]



Sec. 119.21  Written statement of reasons for denying license.

    If the Board declines to recommend the applicant for the license 
applied for, it shall furnish him a statement, in writing, setting forth 
the reasons for its refusal to make the recommendation.
[31 FR 12311, Sept. 16, 1966]



Sec. 119.23  Limitations on license.

    The Board may limit, as appropriate, the tonnage, length, 
horsepower, type of vessel(s) and the waters upon which any licensee may 
act. The Board will note any such limitations on the license.



Sec. 119.24  Oath of licensee.

    Every person receiving a license or certificate of lost license 
shall sign

[[Page 123]]

same upon the back thereof immediately upon its receipt, and execute an 
oath faithfully to perform the duties of this position, which shall be 
attached to the stub end of the license retained by the Board.
[31 FR 12311, Sept. 16, 1966]



Sec. 119.25  Duplicate license.

    If a person to whom a license has been issued loses his license, he 
shall promptly report the loss to the Board. The Board shall issue a 
duplicate license after receiving from the person a properly executed 
affidavit giving satisfactory evidence of the loss. The license shall be 
issued as a duplicate by the addition of the following written 
endorsement: ``This license replaces License Number ---- issued at ---- 
on the above date.'' The duplicate license shall have the same force and 
effect as the original, lost license.



                           Subpart B--Masters



Sec. 119.61  Master, steam and motor vessels; experience required.

    In order to be eligible for a Panama Canal license as Master of 
steam and motor vessels, an applicant must--
    (a) Hold a currently valid Panama Canal license as mate of steam and 
motor vessels, and have served at least 260 eight-hour watches in charge 
of a deck watch on Panama Canal Commission vessels of 75 feet in length 
engaged in towing; or
    (b) Hold a license as Master or mate of steam and motor vessels 
issued by an authority outside the Panama Canal, and have served at 
least 260 eight-hour watches as a licensed officer in charge of a deck 
watch on steam or motor vessels over 75 feet in length engaged in 
towing.



Sec. 119.63  Master, non-self-propelled floating equipment; experience.

                       Subpart B--Levying of Tolls



Sec. 133.31  Measurement of vessels; vessels to secure tonnage certificate.

    The rules for the measurement of vessels are fixed by part 135 of 
this chapter. Vessels desiring to transit the Canal shall provide 
themselves with a tonnage certificate in accordance with Sec. 133.32.
[59 FR 43254, Aug. 22, 1994]



Sec. 133.32  Measurement of vessels; making and correction of measurements; plans and copies.

    Measurements may be made by the admeasurers of the Canal or certain 
other officials worldwide as designated by the Panama Canal Commission. 
Each transiting vessel should have aboard and available to Canal 
authorities a full set of plans and a copy of the measurements which 
were made at the time of issue of its International Tonnage Certificate 
(1969), as well as the tonnage certificate itself. A copy of the

authorities. The Commission reserves the right to check and correct the 
total volume that is to be used in the calculation of the PC/UMS Net 
Tonnage.

(Approved by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under control 
number 3207-0001)

[59 FR 43254, Aug. 22, 1994]



Sec. 133.33  Measurement of vessels; temporary retention of certificate at Canal.

    The official PC/UMS Net Tonnage certificate shall be delivered by 
the Canal authorities to the vessel or to the owner or agent of the 
vessel after transit completion. This certificate shall be retained on 
board the vessel and shall be used to certify that the vessel has been 
inspected and its PC/UMS Net Tonnage has been determined by the 
Commission.
[59 FR 43254, Aug. 22, 1994]



Sec. 133.34  Tolls for vessels in ballast.

    In order for a vessel to secure the reduced rate of toll for vessels 
in ballast, it may not be carrying any passengers or cargo nor any fuel 
for its own consumption in a quantity which exceeds the spaces on the 
vessel which are available for the carriage of fuel (i.e., the actual 
volume of tanks or fixed compartments, including settling tanks, used 
for the storage of lubricating oil or fuel, which spaces cannot be used 
to stow cargo or stores and which have been certified by official 
marking to be spaces for the vessel's own fuel).

Sec. 133.36  Tolls for vessels making partial transit and return.

    Vessels passing through the locks at either end of the Panama Canal 
and returning to the original point of entry without passing through the 
locks at the other end of the Canal, shall pay the tolls prescribed for 
a single passage through the Canal. In case such vessels carry cargo or 
passengers either in passing or returning through the locks, the rate of 
tolls on laden vessels shall apply.



Sec. 133.37  Partial transits by small vessels.

    Section 133.36 shall not be interpreted as authorizing vessels less 
than 65 feet in length, or barges, or rafts of any size not on regular 
transit schedules and not paying tolls, to navigate the waters of any 
locks, or of Gaillard Cut to or from Gatun Lake in partial transit of 
the Canal; specific authority of the Administrator must be obtained 
through the Marine Director for each such partial transit.

    (a) The payment of tolls and vessel charges may be secured by making 
cash deposits for that purpose with the Treasurer of the Panama Canal 
Commission or such United States depository as may be designated by the 
Panama Canal Commission.
    (b) In lieu of payment in cash or a cash deposit, the payment of 
tolls and vessel charges may be secured by making deposits, pursuant to 
written agreement with the Panama Canal Commission, of negotiable bonds 
of the United States Treasury Department as collateral security for the 
deposit of public moneys. Such bonds shall be under the full control of 
the Panama Canal Commission; shall be deposited with the Treasurer of 
the Panama Canal Commission or such United States depository as may be

                      Subpart A--General Provisions



Sec. 135.1  Scope.

    This part establishes the procedures for determining the Panama 
Canal Universal Measurement System (hereinafter PC/UMS) Net Tonnage. The 
tonnage shall be used to assess tolls for use of the Panama Canal. Also, 
the tonnage may be used, when adequate volume information is not 
provided, to assess the charge for admeasurement services. Vessels 
measuring not more than 30.48 meters (100 feet) in length overall are 
not required to be measured. If the Panama Canal Commission determines 
the toll provided in Sec. 133.1 (d) will apply, the vessel need not be 
assigned a PC/UMS Net Tonnage.
[59 FR 43255, Aug. 22, 1994, as amended at 63 FR 23221, Apr. 28, 1998]



Sec. 135.2  Vessels generally to present tonnage certificate or be measured.

    All vessels except warships, floating drydocks, dredges, and vessels 
subject to transitional relief measures, applying for passage through 
the Panama Canal shall present a duly authenticated International 
Tonnage Certificate (1969) (hereinafter ITC 69), or suitable substitute 
(i.e., a certificate derived from a system which is substantially 
similar to that which was provided for in the 1969 International 
Convention on Tonnage Measurement of Ships, and which contains the total 
volume or allows for the direct mathematical determination of total 
volume). Vessels without such total volume information shall be 
inspected by Canal authorities who shall determine an appropriate volume 
for use in the calculation of a PC/UMS Net Tonnage of such vessels. In 
addition, these same vessels shall provide documentation, such as plans 
and classification certificates, with sufficient information to 
determine the volume of the maximum capacity of containers that may be 
carried on or above the upper deck, or VMC as defined in section 
135.13(a)(11).

Sec. 135.3  Determination of total volume and VMC.

    (a) Determination of total volume and VMC used to calculate PC/UMS 
Net Tonnage shall be carried out by the Panama Canal Commission. In so 
doing, however, the Commission may rely upon total volume and VMC 
information provided by such officials as are authorized by national 
governments to undertake surveys and issue national tonnage 
certificates. Total volume and VMC information presented to the 
Commission shall be subject to verification, and if necessary, 
correction as necessary to ensure accuracy to a degree acceptable to the 
Commission.
    (b) The Commission may, when it is deemed necessary to verify 
information contained on the ITC 69, require the submission of 
additional documents. Failure to submit the requested documentation may 
result in the Commission's developing a figure that accurately reflects 
the vessel's volume.

and interpreted by the Administrator of the Panama Canal Commission.



                Subpart B--PC/UMS Net Tonnage Measurement



Sec. 135.11  Tonnage.

    (a) The tonnage of a ship shall consist of PC/UMS Net Tonnage.
    (b) The net tonnage shall be determined in accordance with the 
provisions of the regulations in this subpart.
    (c) The net tonnage of novel types of craft whose constructional 
features are such as to render the application of the provisions of the 
regulations in this subpart unreasonable or impracticable shall be 
determined in a manner which is acceptable to the Panama Canal 
Commission.

[[Page 147]]



Sec. 135.12  Definitions.

    (a) Upper deck means the uppermost complete deck exposed to weather 
and sea, which has permanent means of weathertight closing of all 
openings in the weather part thereof, and below which all openings in 
the sides of the ship are fitted with permanent means of watertight 
closing. In a ship having a stepped upper deck, the lowest line of the 
exposed deck and the continuation of that line parallel to the upper 
part of the deck is taken as the upper deck.
    (b) Moulded depth means the vertical distance measured from the top 
of the keel to the underside of the upper deck at side.
    (1) In wood and composite ships the distance is measured from the 
lower edge of the keel rabbet. Where the form at the lower part of the 
midship section is of a hollow character, or where thick garboards are 
fitted, the distance is measured from the point where the line of the 
flat of the bottom continued inwards cuts the side of the keel.
    (2) In ships having rounded gunwales, the moulded depth shall be 
measured to the point of intersection of the moulded lines of the deck 
and side shell plating, the lines extending as though the gunwales were 
of angular design.
    (3) Where the upper deck is stepped and the raised part of the deck 
extends over the point at which the moulded depth is to be determined, 
the moulded depth shall be measured to a line of reference extending 
from the lower part of the deck along a line parallel with the raised 
part.
    (c) Breadth or moulded breadth means the maximum breadth of the 
ship, measured amidships to the moulded line of the frame in a ship with 
a metal shell and to the outer surface of the hull in a ship with a 
shell of any other material.
    (d) Enclosed spaces mean all spaces which are bounded by the ship's 
hull, by fixed or portable partitions or bulkheads, by decks or 
coverings other than permanent or movable awnings. No break in a deck, 
nor any opening in the ship's hull, in a deck or in a covering of a 
space, or in the partitions or bulkheads of a space, nor the absence of 
a partition or bulkhead, shall preclude a space from being included in 
the enclosed space.
    (e) Excluded spaces mean, notwithstanding the provisions of 
paragraph (d) of this section, the spaces referred to in paragraphs 
(e)(1) to (e)(5) of this section. Excluded spaces shall not be included 
in the volume of enclosed spaces, except that any such space which 
fulfills at least one of the following three conditions shall be treated 
as an enclosed space:

--The space is fitted with shelves or other means for securing cargo or 
stores;
--The openings are fitted with any means of closure; or
--The construction provides any possibility of such openings being 
closed.

    (1)(i) A space within an erection opposite an end opening extending 
from deck to deck except for a curtain plate of a depth not exceeding by 
more than 25 millimeters (one inch) the depth of the adjoining deck 
beams, such opening having a breadth equal to or greater than 90 percent 
of the breadth of the deck at the line of the opening of the space. This 
provision shall be applied so as to exclude from the enclosed spaces 
only the space between the actual end opening and a line drawn parallel 
to the line or face of the opening at a distance from the opening equal 
to one-half of the width of the deck at the line of the opening (Figure 
1).

    In the figure:

O = excluded space
C = enclosed space
I = space to be considered as an enclosed space
Hatched-in parts to be included as enclosed spaces.
B = breadth of the deck in way of the opening.

    In ships with rounded gunwales the breadth is measured as indicated 
in Figure 11 in paragraph (e)(5).

[[Page 148]]

[GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TR22AU94.000


    (ii) Should the width of the space because of any arrangement except 
by convergence of the outside plating, become less than 90 percent of 
the breadth of the deck, only the space between the line of the opening 
and a parallel line drawn through the point where the athwartships width 
of the space becomes equal to, or less than, 90 percent of the breadth 
of the deck shall be excluded from the volume of enclosed spaces. 
(Figures 2, 3 and 4).

    (iii) Where an interval which is completely open except for bulwarks 
or open rails separates any two spaces, the exclusion of one or both of 
which is permitted under paragraphs (e)(1)(i) and/or (e)(1)(ii) of this 
section, such exclusion shall not apply if the separation between the 
two spaces is less than the least half breadth of the deck in way of the 
separation. (Figures 5 and 6).

O = excluded space
C = enclosed space
I = space to be considered as an enclosed space
Hatched-in parts to be included as enclosed spaces.

[[Page 152]]

    (2) A space under an overhead deck covering open to the sea and 
weather, having no other connection on the exposed sides with the body 
of the ship than the stanchions necessary for its support. In such a 
space, open rails or a bulwark and curtain plate may be fitted or 
stanchions fitted at the ship's side, provided that the distance between 
the top of the rails or the bulwark and the curtain plate is not less 
than 0.75 meters (2.5 feet) or one-third of the height of the space, 
whichever is the greater. (Figure 7).

      
    [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TR22AU94.004
    
    (3) A space in a side-to-side erection directly in way of opposite 
side openings not less in height than 0.75 meters (2.5 feet) or one-
third of the height of the erection, whichever is the greater. If the 
opening in such an erection is provided on one side only, the space to 
be excluded from the volume of enclosed spaces shall be limited inboard 
from the opening to a maximum of one-half of the breadth of the deck in 
way of the opening. (Figure 8).

    In the figures:

O = excluded space
C = enclosed space
I = space to be considered as an enclosed space
Hatched-in parts to be included as enclosed spaces.
B = breadth of the deck in way of the opening.

    [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TR22AU94.005
    
    (4) A space in an erection immediately below an uncovered opening in 
the deck overhead, provided that such an opening is exposed to the 
weather and the space excluded from enclosed spaces is limited to the 
area of the opening. (Figure 9).
      
    [GRAPHIC] [TIFF OMITTED] TR22AU94.006
    
    (5) A recess in the boundary bulkhead of an erection which is 
exposed to the weather and the opening of which extends from deck to 
deck without means of closing, provided that the interior width is not 
greater than the width at the entrance and its extension into the 
erection is not greater than twice the width of its entrance. (Figure 
10).

    (f) Passenger means every person other than:
    (1) the master and the members of the crew or other persons employed 
or engaged in any capacity on board a ship on the business of that ship; 
and
    (2) a child under one year of age.
    (g) Weathertight means that in any sea conditions water will not 
penetrate into the ship.



Sec. 135.13  Determination of PC/UMS Net Tonnage.

    PC/UMS Net Tonnage shall be determined as follows:
    (a) For all vessels with tolls fixed in accordance with 
Sec. 133.1(a) or (b) of this chapter, unless subject to the transitional 
relief measures established in Sec. 135.31 of this chapter, the formula 
for determining PC/UMS Net Tonnage is:

PC/UMS Net Tonnage=K4(V)+K5(V) 
+CF1(VMC)

in which formula:
    (1) ``K4''={0.25 + [0.01  x  Log10(V)]}  x  
0.830
    (2) ``K5''=[Log10(DA-19)]/
{[Log10(DA-16)]  x  17}. If the number of passengers 
(N1 + N2) is greater than 100 or DA is equal to or 
less than 20.0 meters then K5 is equal to zero.
    (3) ``V''=Total volume of all enclosed spaces of the ship in cubic 
meters and is identical to V as specified in the 1969

[[Page 155]]

International Convention on Tonnage Measurement of Ships.
    (4) ``DA'' (Average depth)=The result of the division of the Total 
Volume by the product of the length in meters multiplied by the moulded 
breadth in meters. DA=V/(L  x  MB).
    (5) ``L'' (Length) is defined as 96 percent of the total length on a 
waterline at 85 percent of the least moulded depth measured from the top 
of the keel, or the length from the fore side of the stem to the axis of 
the rudder stock on that waterline, if that be greater. In ships 
designed with a rake of keel, the waterline on which this length is 
measured shall be parallel to the designed waterline.
    (6) Moulded breadth is defined in Sec. 135.12(c).
    (7) N1=number of passengers in cabins with not more than 
8 berths.
    (8) N2=number of other passengers.
    (9) N1 + N2=total number of passengers the 
ship is permitted to carry as indicated in the ship's passenger 
certificate.
    (10) ``CF1''=.031 for ships which the Commission 
determines are designed to carry containers on or above the upper deck; 
otherwise ``CF1''=0. In making the foregoing determination, 
the Commission may consider documentation provided by such officials as 
are authorized by national governments to undertake surveys and issue 
national tonnage certificates.
    (11) ``VMC''=the volume (in cubic meters) of maximum capacity of the 
containers that can be carried on or above the upper deck. This volume 
may be calculated by multiplying the maximum number of containers by 
29.2 m3, or by other generally accepted methods that meet the 
Commission's accuracy standards. VMC will not include any container 
capacity that is included in ``V''.

    (b) For vessels subject to transitional relief measures, the 
existing Panama Canal Net Tonnage as specified on the certificate issued 
by the Commission plus CF1 (VMC) shall be the PC/UMS Net 
Tonnage. In such case, the formula for determining PC/UMS Net Tonnage 
is: PC/UMS Net Tonnage=Panama Canal Net Tonnage+CF1(VMC).
[59 FR 43255, Aug. 22, 1994, as amended at 61 FR 60612, Nov. 29, 1996]



Sec. 135.14  Change of PC/UMS Net Tonnage.

    (a) Vessels whose PC/UMS Net Tonnage is determined in accordance 
with Sec. 135.13(a) shall have a new PC/UMS Net Tonnage issued if ``V'' 
changes.
    (b) A vessel whose PC/UMS Net Tonnage is determined in accordance 
with Sec. 135.13(b) shall retain that tonnage until the vessel undergoes 
a significant structural change as defined in Sec. 135.14(c). In the 
event of a significant structural change, the vessel's PC/UMS Net 
Tonnage shall be determined in accordance with Sec. 135.13(a).
    (c) For the purposes of paragraph (b) of this section, significant 
structural change means an actual change of at least 10 percent in the 
total volume of the vessel. Vessels without comparative ITC 69 total 
volumes, or other suitable sources of total volume comparison, shall 
have a fair and equitable volume comparison made by the Commission to 
determine if a significant structural change has occurred.
    (d) If the VMC of a vessel is changed due to any physical 
modification after the vessel's PC/UMS Net Tonnage has been determined 
at the Canal, the PC/UMS Net Tonnage may be revised by the Commission.
[59 FR 43255, Aug. 22, 1994, as amended at 61 FR 60612, Nov. 29, 1996]



Sec. 135.15  Calculation of volumes.

    (a) All volumes included in the calculation of PC/UMS Net Tonnage 
shall be measured, irrespective of the fitting of insulation or the 
like, to the inner side of the shell or structural boundary plating in 
ships constructed of metal, and to the outer surface of the shell or to 
the inner side of structural boundary surfaces in ships constructed of 
any other material.
    (b) Volumes of appendages shall be included in the total volume.
    (c) Volumes of spaces open to the sea may be excluded from the total 
volume.

    (d) VMC may be calculated by multiplying the maximum number of 
containers by 29.2 m3, or by other generally accepted methods 
that meet the Commission's accuracy standards.
    (e) For purposes of this part, the outside dimension of a container 
is 8 ft. x 8 ft. x 20 ft., or 36.25 m3. These parameters will 
be used for determining the maximum above-deck container capacity.

Sec. 135.16  Measurement and calculation.

    (a) All measurements used in the calculation of volumes shall be 
taken to the nearest centimeter or one-twentieth of a foot.
    (b) The volumes shall be calculated by generally accepted methods 
for the space concerned and with an accuracy acceptable to the 
Commission.
    (c) The calculation shall be sufficiently detailed to permit easy 
checking.



           Subpart C--Warships, Dredges and Floating Drydocks



Sec. 135.21  Warships, dredges and floating drydocks to present documents stating displacement tonnage.

    All warships, dredges and floating drydocks shall present documents 
stating accurately the tonnage of displacement at each possible mean 
draft. The term ``warship'' means any vessel of government ownership 
that is being employed by its owners for military or naval purposes and 
shall include armed coast guard vessels and vessels devoted to naval 
training purposes, but shall not include naval auxiliary vessels such as 
tankers, ammunition ships, refrigerator ships, repair ships, tenders or 
vessels used to transport general military supplies.

(Approved by Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under control number 
3207-0001)



Sec. 135.22  Tolls on warships, dredges and floating drydocks levied on actual displacement.

    The toll on warships, dredges and floating drydocks shall be based 
upon their tonnage of actual displacement at the time of their 
application for passage through the Canal. The actual displacement of 
these vessels shall be determined in a manner acceptable to the 
Commission and shall be expressed in tons of 2240 pounds. Should any of 
these vessels not have on board documents from which the displacement 
can be determined, Commission officials may use any practicable method 
to determine the displacement tonnage for assessment of tolls.



                 Subpart D--Transitional Relief Measures



Sec. 135.31  Transitional relief measures.

    Transitional relief measures as specified in Sec. 135.13(b) shall be 
applied to a vessel which has made a transit of the Panama Canal between 
March 23, 1976 and September 30, 1994, inclusive, and has not had a 
significant structural change as defined in Sec. 135.14(c) since the 
last transit during the above period. Any significant structural change 
made after the granting of transitional relief measures shall disqualify 
a vessel for further relief, and the vessel shall be handled in 
accordance with the provisions of Sec. 135.13(a). Transitional relief 
measures are applied to the vessel during its entire active service life 
as long as the vessel does not undergo a significant structural change. 
Vessels subject to transitional relief measures shall present their 
existing Panama Canal Tonnage Certificate on their first transit after 
September 30, 1994. Vessels subject to relief measures shall not be 
required to present an ITC 69 or any other total volume certification. 
Vessels subject to relief measures shall provide Canal authorities with 
sufficient documentation, such as plans and classification certificates, 
for the Commission to determine the VMC.

        Subpart E--Alternative Method for Measurement of Vessels



Sec. 135.41  Measurement of vessels when volume information is not available.

    When an ITC 69 or suitable substitute and documentation for the 
calculation of the VMC are not presented, or when the certificate, 
substitute or VMC documentation presented does not meet accuracy 
standards acceptable to the Commission, vessels will be measured in a 
manner that will include the entire cubical contents of V and VMC as 
defined in this part. The Commission shall endeavor to determine an 
accurate total volume of the vessel using the best information available 
at the time of the determination. The total volume shall be calculated 
by generally accepted methods for the space concerned and with an 
accuracy acceptable to the Commission.
[59 FR 43255, Aug. 22, 1994, as amended at 61 FR 60612, Nov. 29, 1996]



Sec. 135.42  Measurement of vessels when tonnage cannot be otherwise ascertained.

    (a) Vessels without an ITC 69, a suitable substitute or 
documentation from which to calculate total volume shall be measured as 
follows:
    (1) The volume of structures above the upper deck may be determined 
by any accepted method or combination of methods. These methods include 
but are not limited to simple geometric formulas, Simpson's rules, and 
other standard mathematical formulas. If special procedures are used, 
they should be identified. In all cases, measurements and calculations 
should be sufficiently detailed to permit easy review.
    (2) The volume of the hull below the upper deck (UDV) shall be 
determined as follows:
    (i) The formula:

UDV={0.91  x  [(LOA  x  MB)  x  (D-SLD)]} + (SLDISP/1.025)
Where:

UDV=Total volume of all enclosed spaces below the upper deck in cubic 
          meters.
LOA=The Length overall, i.e., the length of the ship in meters from the 
          foremost to the aftermost points, including a bulbous bow if 
          present.
MB=Moulded breadth in meters as defined in Sec. 135.12(c).
D=Moulded depth in meters as defined in Sec. 135.12(b).
SLD=Summer loaded draft (in meters), i.e., the maximum depth to which 
          the vessel's hull may be immersed when in a summer zone.
SLDISP=Summer loaded displacement, i.e., the actual weight in metric 
          tons of the water displaced by the vessel when immersed to her 
          SLD.

    (ii) If Sec. 135.42(a)(2)(i) proves unworkable, the total volume of 
the hull below the upper deck shall be determined by multiplying the 
product of the LOA, MB and D by the appropriate coefficient listed in 
the following table:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                       LOA in meters                         Coefficient
------------------------------------------------------------------------
0 to 30....................................................       .7150
> 30 to 60.................................................       .7250
> 60 to 90.................................................       .7360
> 90 to 120................................................       .7453
> 120 to 150...............................................       .7328
> 150 to 180...............................................       .7870
> 180 to 210...............................................       .8202
> 210 to 240...............................................       .7870
> 240 to 270...............................................       .7328
>270.......................................................       .7453
------------------------------------------------------------------------

    (3) The total volume of a vessel is the sum of the volume of the 
structures above the upper deck as determined in accordance with 
Sec. 135.42(a)(1) and the volume of the hull below the upper deck as 
determined in accordance with Sec. 135.42(a)(2) (i) or (ii).
    (b) Vessels which have had their total volume determined in 
accordance with Sec. 135.41 or this section may apply for 
readmeasurement when they have a new or corrected ITC 69, a suitable 
substitute or present documentation sufficient to calculate total 
volume.
    (c) VMC may be determined by any accepted method or combination of 
methods, including but not limited to, simple geometric formulas, 
multiplication of a container by 29.2 m3, or other standard 
mathematical formula. The on-deck container capacity of a vessel for VMC 
purposes will be determined by the Commission.

    (a) For employees not entitled to the differential prescribed by 
Sec. 251.31 or the additional remuneration prescribed by Sec. 251.32, 
the rates of pay shall be the base salary or wage rates prescribed by 
Sec. 251.13. For employees who are entitled to the differential 
prescribed by Sec. 251.31 or the additional remuneration prescribed by 
Sec. 251.32, the rates of pay shall be the base salary or wage rate plus 
the applicable differential or additional remuneration. The aggregate 
pay thus derived shall be considered basic compensation.
    (b) An employee shall not be paid, except as provided in paragraph 
(c) of this section, basic compensation as defined in paragraph (a) of 
this section at a rate in excess of the rate of basic pay payable for 
Level V of the Executive Schedule.
    (c) The Deputy Administrator and the Chief Engineer of the Panama 
Canal Commission shall not be paid basic compensation as defined in 
paragraph (a) of this section at a rate in excess of the rate of basic

    (a) Any employee may request at any time that his employing agency 
review and revise or adjust the classification, grade, and pay level of 
his position, or any of them, as the case may be. Such requests for 
review and revision or adjustment shall be submitted and adjudicated in 
accordance with the regularly established procedures of the employing 
agency.
    (b) In the event of adverse classification decision by the employing 
agency, an employee shall have the right to appeal, in writing, to the 
Panama Canal Board of Appeals.



Sec. 253.14  Terms of members.

    The term of service for each member or alternate member of the 
Panama Canal Board of Appeals shall be for 2 years, provided that the 
Assistant Secretary of the Army may, in his discretion, terminate or 
extend the term of service of any member or alternate member at any 
time. Individuals who are designated as members or alternate members 
shall be detailed to the Panama Canal Board of Appeals for such periods 
as their services are required.

[[Page 170]]

Any hearings on employee appeals will be heard in the Republic of 
Panama.



Sec. 253.15  Appeals procedures.

    The Panama Canal Board of Appeals shall formulate the procedures 
necessary to the performance of the functions prescribed by section 1222 
of the Panama Canal Act. Those portions of the procedures establishing 
time limits for filing appeals, the form in which appeals are to be 
submitted, and the circumstances under which the personal appearance of 
an employee or his representative will be authorized, shall be published 
for the information of all employees.



Sec. 253.16  Effective date of decisions.

    (a) Decisions of the Panama Canal Board of Appeals shall be binding 
upon all employing agencies, and shall be effective not later than the 
beginning of the fourth pay period following the receipt of the decision 
in the employing agency unless a specific date is stated in the decision 
in accordance with paragraph (b) of this section.
    (b) When the appeal to the Panama Canal Board of Appeals is made 
within 30 calendar days from the date of an employee's receipt of an 
adverse decision from his employing agency on a classification appeal 
provided by Sec. 253.13, if it is from an action lowering the grade or 
pay level of the employee's position, and the decision of the Panama 
Canal Board of Appeals raises the grade or pay level of the position, 
the effective date shall be retroactive to the date of the action which 
lowered the grade or pay level. However, when the decision of the Panama 
Canal Board of Appeals raises the grade or pay level of the position 
above the grade or pay level in effect immediately preceding the 
lowering thereof, retroactivity will apply only to the extent of 
restoration to the grade or pay level in effect immediately preceding 
the lowering thereof. Retroactivity may be based only on duties and 
responsibilities existing at the time of the lowering of the grade or 
pay level and not on the basis of duties and responsibilities later 
assigned.
    (c) The right to a retroactive effective date under paragraph (b) of 
this section may be preserved in the discretion of the Panama Canal 
Board of Appeals upon a showing by the employee that reasons beyond his 
control prevented him from appealing within the 30-day period referred 
to in that subparagraph and that he did appeal as promptly as 
circumstances permitted.



                      Subpart B--Filling Positions



Sec. 253.31  Authority of appointing officers; methods of filling vacancies.

temporary appointment. Except as otherwise provided in the regulations 
in this part, the appointing officer shall exercise his discretion in 
all personnel actions solely on the basis of merit and fitness. In

Sec. 253.35  Appointments subject to investigation.

    (a) All initial appointments or reappointments made under this part 
shall be subject to such investigation as may be required to establish 
the appointee's qualifications and suitability for employment.

``subject to investigation'' automatically expires at the end of 1 year 
after the effective date of the appointment.
    (c) For a period of 1 year after the effective date of any 
appointment subject to investigation, the head of the agency may remove 
the employee if investigation discloses that he is disqualified for any 
of the reasons listed in Sec. 253.34. Thereafter removal may be required 
only on the basis of intentional false statements or deception or fraud 
in examination or appointment.



Sec. 253.36  Prohibited practices.

    (a) Coercion in competition. An applicant for competitive 
examination, eligible on any register, or officer or employee in the 
executive branch of the Government may not directly or indirectly 
persuade, induce, or coerce, or attempt to persuade, induce, or coerce 
any prospective applicant to withhold filing application, or any 
applicant or eligible to withdraw from competition or eligibility for 
the purpose of either improving or injuring the prospects of any 
applicant or eligible for appointment. The penalty for violation of this 
section by applicants or eligibles shall be cancellation of application 
or eligibility, as the case may be. The penalty for violation of this 
section by an employee shall be as determined by the head of the agency.
    (b) Instruction of applicants. Employees are forbidden to instruct, 
either directly or indirectly, or to be concerned in any manner with the 
instruction of any person or classes of persons with a view to their 
special preparation for examinations conducted pursuant to the 
regulations in this part, except as a part of a government authorized or 
sponsored program. Violations of this restriction shall be considered 
sufficient cause for removal from the service.



Sec. 253.37  Examinations.

    The Manager, CEO shall be responsible for conducting open 
competitive examinations for entrance into the service which will fairly 
test the relative capacity and fitness of the persons examined for the 
position to be filled. When sufficient competent persons are not 
available to provide competition, the Manager, CEO may, with the consent 
of the employing agency, examine and certify for competitive appointment 
fewer than three individuals.



Sec. 253.38  Rating competitors.

    (a) The subjects in examinations shall be given such relative weight

[[Page 172]]

CFR 337.101(b), (c). Eleven points will be added to the earned ratings 
of eligible Panamanians.
    (b) In rating competitors, CEO shall, in the case of veteran's 
preference eligibles, provide for waiver of the physical standards and 
requirements in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 3312.



Sec. 253.39  Establishment of registers of eligibles.

    The names of eligibles (those competitors who meet minimum 
requirements and are rated as attaining the minimum required rating) 
shall be entered on appropriate registers in the order outlined below. 
In the judgment of CEO, eligibility on registers may be established on 
the basis of earned eligible ratings attained in appropriate 
examinations for positions in the competitive service.
    (a) According to their ratings (including veteran preference and 
Panamanian preference).
    (b) An individual entitled to veteran preference shall be entered 
ahead of all others having the same rating.
    (c) All veterans who have a compensable service-connected disability 
of 10 percent or more shall be entered at the top of the register in the 
order of their ratings, except for professional and scientific positions 
comparable in pay level to positions in grades Non-Manual 9 and above.
    (d) When establishing registers, or making certifications therefrom, 
CEO will provide for priority consideration for career and career-
conditional employees of agencies operating in the Republic of Panama 
who have been separated by reduction in force. However, such priority 
consideration shall not extend to any position which is in a pay level 
higher than that from which the employee was separated. Any benefits 
conferred pursuant to this section are in addition to those conferred by 
entry of the employee's name on the employing activity's reemployment 
priority list.
    (e) CEO will take appropriate action to insure that veterans of, or 
persons serving in, the Armed Forces of the United States, receive the 
same consideration in examinations and entry upon registers as are 
provided for the competitive service by 5 CFR 332.311, 332.312, 332.313, 
332.321, 332.322.
    (f) CEO will establish appropriate time periods and procedures for 
terminating the eligibility of individuals on a register.



Sec. 253.40  Certificate for appointment.

    (a) Upon receipt of a request for certification of eligibles, a 
sufficient number of names to permit the appointing officer to consider 
three eligibles in connection with each vacancy shall be certified from 
the top of the appropriate register. Certificates may contain fewer than 
three names, if fewer than three eligibles are available and the 
requesting agency consents to issuance of such a certificate.
    (b) [Reserved]
    (c) If the number of eligibles on the register is insufficient, CEO, 
in consultation with the employing agency, will determine whether 
selective certification is to be made from another register, whether a 
recruiting campaign to attract applicants for examination should be 
initiated, or whether examining action is to be taken in accordance with 
Sec. 253.37 or a temporary appointment authorized in accordance with 
Sec. 253.43.
    (d) When there is no register appropriate as a whole for 
certification for filling a particular position, there may be certified 
selectively from the most nearly appropriate existing register the names 
of eligibles who are qualified for the particular position. Such 
eligibles shall be certified in the order of their ranking. Eligibles on 
the register may, when appropriate, be rerated on the basis of the 
particular requirements of the position.
    (e) Certification shall be made without regard to sex, unless the 
appointing officer requests and justifies referral of eligibles of a 
specified sex.
    (f) Certification must be limited to eligibles residing in the 
Republic of Panama except when persons possessing the requisite skills 
and qualifications are not found in the Republic of Panama.



Sec. 253.41  Selection from certificates.

    Selections from certificates are made by application of either the 
rule of three or the rule of ten.

[[Page 173]]

    (a) Rule of three. When selecting from a certificate of eligibles, 
an appointing official shall, with sole reference to merit and fitness, 
make the selection for the first vacancy from the highest three 
eligibles available for appointment on the certificate. For the second 
vacancy, the selecting official must make selection from the three 
highest eligibles remaining on the certificate. Each succeeding vacancy 
must be filled in like manner subject to the rules in Sec. 253.40. The 
rule of three applies to selections involving:
    (1) All United States Wage Base positions except those of 
apprentice, floating equipment trainees at the grade FE-5 and FE-7 
levels and marine engineer trainees at the grade ME-7 level; and
    (2) United States citizens.
    (b) Rule of ten. When selecting from a certificate of eligibles, an 
appointing official shall, with sole reference to merit and fitness, 
make the selection for the first vacancy from the highest ten eligibles 
available for appointment on the certificate. For the second vacancy, 
the selecting official must make selection from the ten highest 
eligibles remaining on the certificate. Each succeeding vacancy must be 
filled in like manner subject to the rules in Sec. 253.40. The rule of 
ten applies to selections involving:
    (1) All Canal Area Wage Base positions filled from pre-rated 
inventories which includes the positions of firefighter and firefighter 
trainee, and
    (2) United States Wage Base positions of apprentice, floating 
equipment trainees at the grade FE-5 and FE-7 levels and marine engineer 
trainees at the grade ME-7 level.
    The rule of ten shall not be applied in any situation where a United 
States applicant is among the top three candidates available.
    (c) An appointing officer is not required to consider any eligible:
    (1) Who has been considered for three or ten separate appointments, 
as applicable, from the same or different certificates for the same 
position, or
    (2) To whose certification for the particular position the officer 
makes an objection that is sustained by the CEO for any of the reasons 
stated in Sec. 253.34 or for other reasons considered by the CEO to be 
disqualifying for the particular position. The length of a non-
Panamanian candidate's previous service or residence in foreign areas 
may be a valid qualification and selection factor in filling positions 
in an agency having an established policy for periodic rotation of non-
Panamanian citizens.
    (d) When an appointing officer passes over a veteran-preference 
eligible and tentatively selects a non-preference eligible, the 
provisions of 5 CFR 332.406 apply except that the CEO shall exercise the 
authority vested in the Office of Personnel Management.
[56 FR 1924, Jan. 18, 1991]



Sec. 253.42  Appointments from registers.

    (a) Except as provided by paragraph (d) of this section, a ``Canal 
Area Career-Conditional Appointment'' shall be given to an eligible 
selected from a register for other than temporary or term appointment.
    (b) Upon completion by the appointee of 3 years of creditable 
service, his career-conditional appointment shall be automatically 
converted to a ``Canal Area Career Appointment.'' As used in this 
paragraph, ``creditable service'' means all substantially continuous 
service with the Federal Government since initial non-temporary civilian 
appointment, including any service in the competitive or excepted 
service, or intervening service in the legislative or judicial branches 
or in the Armed Forces of the United States. A break in service of 30 
days or less shall be considered substantially continuous service. 
Breaks in service of more than 30 days shall not be considered 
substantially continuous service unless the head of the agency excepts 
particular types of cases from this requirement. In making such 
exceptions, the agency will be guided by the instructions published for 
the competitive service in the Federal Personnel Manual.
    (c) An eligible given a Canal Area Career-Conditional Appointment 
shall be required to serve a probationary period of 1 year. Prior 
Federal service may be counted toward completion of the probationary 
period as provided in the Federal Personnel Manual. The employing agency 
shall utilize the probationary period as fully as possible to determine 
the fitness of the employee

[[Page 174]]

and shall terminate his services during such period if he fails to 
demonstrate fully his qualifications for continued employment. The 
employee shall automatically acquire a merit status upon satisfactory 
completion of probation.
    (d) An eligible selected from a register for other than a temporary 
or term appointment shall be given a Canal Area Career Appointment if:
    (1) He is a Federal employee serving under a career appointment in 
the competitive service, a permanent appointment in the excepted 
service, or a Canal Area Career Appointment;
    (2) He is a former Federal employee who once met the service 
requirement for a career appointment in the competitive service, a 
permanent appointment in the excepted service, a Canal Zone Career 
Appointment, or a Canal Area Career Appointment.
    (e) An eligible selected from a register for career appointment 
shall be required to serve a probationary period, subject to the same 
conditions as apply to a career-conditional appointment.



Sec. 253.43  Temporary and term appointments.

    (a) An agency may make temporary limited appointments for periods 
not in excess of 1 year, and term appointments for periods of more than 
1, but not in excess of 4 years. In making such appointments, the agency 
will be guided by the instructions published for the competitive service 
in the Federal Personnel Manual. A person so appointed shall not acquire 
merit status by reason of such appointment.
    (b) Term employees are required to serve a 1-year trial period, 
during which they shall be entitled to the same limited protection as is 
accorded probationers under the Panama Canal Employment System. In 
adverse actions, term employees are entitled to the rights accorded 
career and career-conditional employees under the Panama Canal 
Employment System except while they are serving the 1-year trial period 
and when the term appointment has expired.



Sec. 253.44  Noncompetitive appointments.

    (a) Appointing officers may noncompetitively appoint a current 
Federal employee who has a merit status, a competitive status, or who is 
serving probation at the time of appointment. Appointing officers may 
noncompetitively reappoint a former Federal employee who has a merit 
status, a competitive status, or who was serving probation at the time 
of separation. Eligibility for such reappointment will be subject to the 
following conditions:
    (1) Former Federal employees who have never completed the service 
requirement for Canal Zone or Canal Area career appointment or for 
career appointment in the competitive service may be reappointed only 
within 3 years following the date of their separation, except that 
periods of temporary employment shall serve to extend the three-year 
period. This time limit does not apply to former employees entitled to 
veteran preference.
    (2) Former employees who have once completed the service requirement 
for Canal Zone or Canal Area career appointment or for career 
appointment in the competitive service may be reappointed without time 
limitation.
    (b) Appointing officers may noncompetitively appoint an individual 
who is certified by the Director of ACTION as having served 
satisfactorily as a Volunteer or Volunteer Leader under the Peace Corps 
Act, or as a VISTA volunteer under the Economic Opportunity Act. Such 
appointments shall be made in accordance with the procedures and 
regulations in effect for the appointment of such persons to positions 
in the competitive service.
    (c) A Student Trainee who has successfully completed his cooperative 
work-study program may be appointed noncompetitively to a position at 
grade 5 or grade 7 in the applicable Non-Manual schedule for which he 
meets the qualification requirements, with the exception of any written 
test requirements, in the field of work in which he received his 
training, provided:
    (1) He has successfully completed all the requirements for a 
bachelor's degree, including any specialized courses required for the 
particular position for which he has been in training;
    (2) He has completed at least 6 months work experience (i.e., 6 
months in a pay status) as a Student Trainee

[[Page 175]]

in the agency that recommends his appointment; and
    (3) His employing agency recommends him for noncompetitive 
appointment within 90 days after completion of his work-study program.
    (d) Employees appointed to positions excluded from this subpart 
pursuant to Sec. 253.8(c)(5) may have their appointments converted to 
career or career-conditional appointments in accordance with regulations 
prescribed by the PAPB. Such regulations shall generally conform to the 
regulations of the Office of Personnel Management for conversion of 
excepted service appointments of physically or mentally handicapped 
persons to career or career-conditional appointments.
    (e) A Professional and Administrative Career Intern Program 
participant who has successfully completed at least one year of the 
prescribed training may be noncompetitively appointed to a position at 
non-manual grades 7 and above for which he/she meets the qualification 
requirements.

Sec. 253.45  Tenure following noncompetitive appointment.

    (a) The noncompetitive appointment of a current or former Federal 
employee who has not completed the service requirement for Canal Area or 
Canal Zone career appointment or career appointment in the competitive 
service shall be made as a Canal Area Career-Conditional Appointment. 
The appointment shall be automatically converted to a Canal Area Career 
Appointment upon completion of the service requirement. A merit status 
shall be acquired upon satisfactory completion of any required 
probationary period.
    (b) The noncompetitive appointment of a former or current Federal 
employee who has once completed the service requirement for Canal Zone 
or Canal Area Career Appointment or for career appointment in the 
competitive service shall be made as Canal Area Career Appointment.
    (c) Former or current Federal employees who did not complete any 
required probationary periods prior to noncompetitive appointment shall 
be required to serve a probationary period of one year following 
appointment.
    (d) The noncompetitive appointment of Volunteer or Volunteer Leader 
under the Peace Corps Act or VISTA volunteer under the Economic 
Opportunity Act shall be made as Canal Area Career-Conditional 
Appointment; shall be subject to satisfactory completion of a 
probationary period of one year; and shall be automatically converted to 
a Canal Area Career Appointment upon completion of the service 
requirement. A merit status shall be acquired upon satisfactory 
completion of probation.
    (e) The noncompetitive appointment of a person who successfully 
completed a cooperative work-study program or a Professional and 
Administrative Career Intern Program under paragraph (c) or (e), 
respectively, of Sec. 253.44 shall be made as a Canal Area Career-
Conditional Appointment or Canal Area Career Appointment and may be 
subject to the satisfactory completion of a probationary period of one 
year. Canal Area Career-Conditional Appointments shall be automatically 
converted to Canal Area Career Appointments upon completion of the 
Service requirements.

[47 FR 12956, Mar. 26, 1982, as amended at 49 FR 41025, Oct. 19, 1984]



Sec. 253.46  Promotion, demotion, reassignment, and transfer.

    (a) Appointing officers may, in their discretion, promote, demote, 
reassign, or transfer employees who are serving under Canal Area Career 
or Career-Conditional Appointments, subject to the provisions of this 
section and in accordance with the appropriate qualification standards 
established by the PAPB for the position. Such actions will be based 
solely on the merit of the employee and upon his qualifications and 
fitness to hold the positions concerned. Such actions for employees 
serving under temporary or term appointments will be subject to such 
regulations as the agency may prescribe. In preparing such regulations 
the agency will be guided by the instructions

[[Page 176]]

published for the competitive service in the Federal Personnel Manual.
    (b) Employing agencies shall establish a promotion plan for all 
employees which is consistent with the Panama Canal Treaty and insofar 
as practicable, with the provisions of the merit promotion plan 
developed by the Office of Personnel Management for the competitive 
service.



Sec. 253.47  Rotation of personnel.

    (a) United States citizen employees and other non-Panamanian

transferred to a position in the Panama Canal Commission or another 
agency in the Republic of Panama on October 1, 1979 without a break in 
service.
    (2) An individual who was separated from the Panama Canal Company or 
Canal Zone Government by reason of a reduction in force on September 30, 
1979 and was appointed to a position in the Panama Canal Commission 
before April 1, 1980, or
    (3) An individual who was employed by a department on September 30, 
1979 and continues in employment with an agency, other than the Panama 
Canal Commission, without a break in service.
    (b) The head of each agency shall establish a policy of periodic 
rotation in accordance with paragraph (a) of this section and other 
applicable law. Such policy may except positions from rotation for sound 
administrative reasons. This section shall not preclude an agency other 
than the Commission from adopting a policy of periodic rotation of 
employees pursuant to other authority.
    (c) Notwithstanding any Canal Area Career or Career-Conditional 
Appointment or acquisition of merit status, an employee may, in 
accordance with an agency's rotation policy, be removed from service 
after completion of the service period under the rotation policy 
established under this section.

    Subpart C--Conversion to Canal Area Career or Career-Conditional 
                              Appointments



Sec. 253.71  Eligibility.

    Incumbents of positions made subject to Subpart B of this part by 
revocation of an exclusion in Sec. 253.8 or by other action, may be 
retained in their positions. Each retained incumbent without a personal 
or competitive status who is serving in a continuing position under a 
non-temporary appointment will become eligible for conversion to a Canal 
Area Career or Career-Conditional Appointment provided:
    (a) He rendered 6 months satisfactory service in the position 
immediately prior to its inclusion under Subpart B of this part. Periods 
to be counted toward the 6-month period as an exception to the 
requirement for actual service shall be determined in accordance with 
the instructions applying to the competitive service as published in 
Chapter 315 of the Federal Personnel Manual.
    (b) He meets the applicable qualification and suitability standards.
    (c) His employing agency submits a timely recommendation which is 
approved by the PAPB.



Sec. 253.72  Procedure.

    The employing agency shall recommend to the PAPB that the 
appointment of an eligible employee be converted. The recommendation 
shall be submitted not later than one year after the date that the 
position is brought within the coverage of Subpart B of this part. Upon 
approval by the PAPB, the conversion is effective as of the date of the 
employing agency's recommendation. Notice of the PAPB's decision 
together with the reasons therefor shall be given in writing to the 
agency and employee concerned and be made a part of the employee's 
official personnel folder.

[[Page 177]]



Sec. 253.73  Tenure.

    (a) Preservation of tenure. Neither a conversion action, nor a 
recommendation for conversion, shall serve to reduce an employee's 
retention standing for reduction-in-force purposes.
    (b) Tenure following recommendation. Upon submission of a 
recommendation for conversion, the nominee's retention standing for 
reduction in force is in Retention Group I if he is already in that 
group or if he meets the service requirement for a Canal Area Career 
Appointment; otherwise, his retention standing is in Tenure Group II.
    (1) An employee reverts to his previous tenure group if the 
recommendation is returned without final action, and remains in this 
group until such time as the recommendation is resubmitted.
    (2) Irrespective of his previous retention standing, an employee is 
placed in Tenure Group III if the PAPB disapproves the recommendation 
for conversion.
    (c) Tenure following conversion. Conversion will be to Canal Area 
Career Appointment if the employee meets the service requirement for 
such appointment; otherwise, conversion will be to Canal Area Career-
Conditional Appointment. However, retention standing for reduction-in-
force purposes will be governed by paragraph (a) of this section. All 
conversions will be subject to satisfactory completion of a one-year 
probationary period if such probation has not been completed prior to 
the time of conversion.



Sec. 253.74  Acquisition of merit status.

    An employee who is converted under this subpart acquires a merit 
status upon completion of any required probationary period.



Sec. 253.75  Employees not recommended for conversion.

    (a) Employees who are not recommended for conversion, or whose 
conversion is disapproved, will be retained in status quo and placed in 
Tenure Group III until separated or until they receive a competitive 
appointment.
    (b) Employees retained in status quo may be noncompetitively changed 
to other positions upon meeting the requirements established pursuant to 
Sec. 253.46(a) for the noncompetitive movement of employees serving 
under temporary appointments.
    (c) Employees retained in status quo are subject to displacement by

Sec. 256.1  Collection of debts by offset; scope of regulations.

    (a) If it is determined that an employee of the United States is 
indebted to the Panama Canal Commission, the employee's pay may be 
offset to satisfy that indebtedeness under the procedures set forth in 
this part.
    (b) Debts owed by Commission employees to other agencies of the 
United States may be recovered by offset against the employee's pay in 
accordance with Sec. 256.13. Similar provision in the regulations of 
other agencies permit the Commission to recover by offset debts owed to 
the Commission by the employee of another agency, if the Commission 
first complies with the provisions of Secs. 256.1 through 256.12 of this 
part.
    (c) An offset against pay shall be carried out in accordance with 
the standards established under the Federal Claims Collection Act of 
1966, as amended (31 U.S.C. 3701 et seq.).
    (d) The regulations in this part do not apply to, and do not impair 
the United States' authority with regard to, the collection of a debt, 
by offset or by other means, if the debt is owed to the United States by 
a Federal employee and the debt arose under the Internal Revenue Code of 
1954 as amended (26 U.S.C. 1 et seq.), or in any other circumstances in 
which collection of a debt by salary offset is explicitly provided by 
Federal statute, such as the collection authority granted the Commission 
pursuant to 22 U.S.C. 3645.
    (e) These regulations do not preclude an employee from questioning 
the amount or validity of a debt by submitting a claim to the General 
Accounting Office, but the Commission need not suspend the collection of 
the debt because of the filing of such a claim.
    (f) These regulations do not preclude the compromise, suspension or 
termination of collection actions where appropriate under the standards 
set forth at 4 CFR 101.1 et seq.
    (g) An employee's involuntary payment of all or any portion of an 
alleged debt being collected pursuant to this part shall not be 
construed as a waiver of any rights which the employee may have under 
this subpart or any other provision of law, except as otherwise provided 
by law.
    (h) Amounts paid or deducted pursuant to this subpart shall be 
promptly refunded to an employee if the debt is waived or otherwise 
found not owing to the United States or if the Commission is directed by 
a competent judicial or administrative authority to refund amounts 
deducted from an employee's current pay.
    (i) The procedures in this part and the collection of debts by the 
Panama Canal Commission shall be carried out by the Chief Financial 
Officer.
    (j) The Commission will not initiate salary offset to collect a debt 
under this subpart more than ten years after the Government's right to 
collect the debt first accrued, unless facts material to the

reasonably have been known by the official or officials of the 
Government who are charged with discovering and collecting the debt in 
question.

    Creditor agency means the Federal agency to which the debt is owed.

to, those arising from loans insured or guaranteed by the United States,

intervals from the current pay of an employee without his consent.
    Waiver means the cancellation, remission, forgiveness or nonrecovery

Sec. 256.3  Pay subject to offset.

    (a) An offset from an employee's pay from the Commission may not 
exceed 15 percent of the employee's disposable pay, unless the employee 
agree in writing to a larger offset.
    (b) If collection in one lump-sum payment would exceed 15 percent of 
the employee's disposable pay, an offset shall be made biweekly or at 
officially established pay intervals from the employee's current pay 
account. Whenever possible, the installment payments shall be sufficient 
in size to liquidate the debt during a period not greater than the 
anticipated period of active duty or employment of the debtor employee.
    (c) If an employee retires, resigns, or is discharged, or if his 
employment period or period of active duty otherwise ends before 
collection of the debt is completed, an offset may be made from 
subsequent payments of any nature (e.g., final salary payment, lump-sum 
leave, etc.) due the individual from the employing agency, to the extent 
necessary to liquidate the debt. If the final payment due the employee 
is insufficient to satisfy the debt, the creditor agency shall take 
steps necessary to provide for payment of the debt by administrative 
offset from payments of any kind due the former employee from the United 
States pursuant to 31 U.S.C. 3716. (See 4 CFR 102.4)

United States in a specific amount as the result of a debt due and owing 
to the Panama Canal Commission;
    (2) That he intends to satisfy that indebtedness by offsetting 15 
percent of the employee's disposable pay unless the employee can 
demonstrate that he is not indebted to the United States or that the 
proposed offset schedule would produce an extreme financial hardship, as 
defined in Sec. 256.12 of this part;
    (3) If the applicable law includes a provision requiring waiver of 
debts in certain circumstances, notice of the waiver provision, 
including a description of the conditions under which a waiver must be 
granted, notice that the employee has an opportunity to request such a 
waiver, and instructions on how to apply for a waiver; and
    (4) The options available to him and time limits within which 
submission of additional information or documents must be made.
    (b)(1) An employee who has been notified of the Chief Financial 
Officer's determination of the existence and amount of the debt and the 
proposed offset schedule, may submit to him a request--

[[Page 182]]

    (i) Not later than 10 days from the date the employee receives the 
notice, for a copy of the records in the possession of the agency 
relating to the debt,
    (ii) Within the time specified in paragraph (c) of this section, 
that he reconsider his determination of the existence or amount of the 
debt,
    (iii) Within the time set forth in paragraph (c) fo this section, 
that he reconsider the proposed offset schedule, on the basis that it 
would produce an extreme financial hardship for the employee, and
    (iv) Within the time set forth in paragraph (c) of this section, 
that he consider a request for waiver of the debt, if a waiver provision 
is applicable to the debt.
    (2) If the employee requests a reconsideration of the determination 
of the existence or amount of the debt, the employee shall submit a 
statement, with supporting documents, indicating why the employee 
believes he is not so indebted.
    (3) If the employee requests a reconsideration of the proposed 
offset schedule, the employee shall file an alternative proposed offset 
schedule and a statement, with supporting documents, showing why the 
schedule proposed by the agency would produce an extreme financial 
hardship for the employee. The supporting documents must show, for the 
employee and his spouse and legal dependents, for the one-year period 
preceding the receipt of the notice and for the repayment period 
proposed by the employee in his or her offset schedule, the--
    (i) Income from all sources,
    (ii) Assets,
    (iii) Liabilities,
    (iv) Number of legal dependents,
    (v) Expenses for food, housing, clothing, and transportation,
    (vi) Medical expenses, and
    (vii) Exceptional expenses, if any.
    (c) An employee who requests a reconsideration of the existence or 
amount of the debt, or the proposed offset schedule, shall submit his 
statement, with supporting documents, to the Chief Financial Officer no 
later than--
    (1) Forty-five days from the date the employee receives the notice 
of the debt, if he does not make a timely request for records under 
paragraph (b)(1)(i) of this section; or
    (2) Forty-five days from the date the employee receives the records, 
if a timely request for records was made.
    (d) If the employee submits a timely request for reconsideration 
under paragraph (b) of this section, together with the required 
documents, the Chief Financial Officer will reconsider whether the 
employee is indebted to the United States, the amount that the employee 
owes, or whether the proposed offset schedule is appropriate.
    (e) If the employee files a timely request for waiver of the debt, 
the Chief Financial Officer will consider that request. If the employee 
files a request for waiver that is not timely, the request will be 
considered if he establishes that his failure to file within the time 
prescribed was because of circumstances beyond his control or because he 
did not receive the notice of the time limit and was not otherwise aware 
of it.
    (f) The Chief Financial Officer's decision on the employee's request 
for reconsideration will be based on agency records and the material 
submitted by the employee. He shall promptly notify the employee of his 
decision concerning the existence and amount of the debt and the 
appropriateness of the employee's proposed alternative offset schedule.
    (g) If the Chief Financial Officer determines that the employee is 
indebted to the United States, he will include in the notice to the 
employee the following matters:
    (1) A statement of the reasons for the decision regarding the 
indebtedness, including, if applicable, the reasons for any reduction of 
the amount of the indebtedness; and
    (2) The notice described in Sec. 256.5.
    (h) If the Chief Financial Officer determines that his original 
offset schedule, or a modified schedule (other than the one proposed by 
the employee) will not impose an extreme financial hardship on the 
employee, he will include in the notice to the employee--
    (1) A statement of the reasons for his conclusion that his original 
or modified offset schedule will not impose an extreme financial 
hardship, and
    (2) The notice described in Sec. 256.6.

offset schedule proposed by the Commission, if the employee fails to 
appear at the time fixed for a hearing, or fails to file the required 
submissions under Sec. 256.6 within five days after the filing date 
established under that section.
    (b) The hearing official may excuse the employee's failure to meet 
any of

[[Page 185]]

the foregoing requirements if the employee shows that he exercised due 
diligence and that there is good cause for his failure to meet the 
requirements.



Sec. 256.9  Hearing procedures.

    (a) The hearing will be conducted by a hearing official who is not 
an employee of the Commission or otherwise under its supervision or 
control, except that hearings on waivers may be conducted by an employee 
of the Commission.
    (b) The hearing official shall prepare a summary record of the 
hearing, which will be maintained by the Commission as a part of the 
record of the offset procedures; however, no transcript of the hearing 
shall be made.
    (c) The hearing shall not be conducted in accordance with formal 
rules of evidence with regard to the admissibility or use of evidence, 
except that the hearing official shall limit the evidence to testimony 
and documents which are relevant to the issues being considered.
    (d) At the hearing, the employee and the Commission may introduce 
evidence and may call witnesses, consistent with the provisions of 
paragraph (c) of this section. Witnesses shall testify under oath and 
are subject to cross-examination.
    (e) If the matter being contested is the existence or amount of a 
debt, the hearing official shall issue a decision upholding the 
Commission determination, unless the hearing official finds that the 
Commission determination was clearly erroneous.
    (f) If the hearing official finds that the Commission's 
determination of the amount of the debt was clearly erroneous, he shall 
determine the amount owed by the employee, if any.
    (g) If the matter being contested is the Commission's proposed 
offset schedule, the hearing official shall uphold that schedule unless 
the employee has demonstrated by clear and convincing evidence that the 
payments called for under that schedule would result in an extreme 
financial hardship for the employee.
    (h) If the matter being contested is the credibility or veracity of 
the employee in connection with his request for a waiver, the hearing 
official shall make a determination as to the employee's credibility or 
veracity.
    (i) If the hearing official finds that the payments called for under 
the Chief Financial Officer's proposed offset schedule will produce an 
extreme financial hardship for the employee, the hearing official shall 
establish an offset schedule that will result in the repayment of the 
debt in the shortest period of time which will not result in an extreme 
financial hardship for the employee.
    (j) The hearing official shall issue a written opinion setting forth 
his decision and a statement of the reasons supporting it as soon as 
practicable, but not more than 60 days after the filing of the petition 
requesting the hearing, unless the hearing official has granted a delay 
in the proceedings at the request of the employee. The opinion shall 
contain his determinations as to the existence and amount of the debt, 
the origin of the debt, and, if a request for a waiver has been made, 
the employee's veracity or credibility.
    (k) If the employee files a petition for a hearing in connection 
with a request for a waiver under a statute requiring a waiver and meets 
the time limits for filing material prior to the hearing, no deductions 
to effect the offset will be made until the employee has been provided a 
hearing and a final written decision has been issued.



Sec. 256.10  Representation.

    An employee may represent himself or may be represented by another 
person, including an attorney, during any proceedings under this part.



Sec. 256.11  Applicable legal principles.

    (a) The hearing official may not find that the Commission's 
determination of the existence or amount of the employee's debt was 
erroneous--
    (1) On the basis of State or local statutes of limitations;
    (2) On the basis that the employee is owed monies by the United 
States (other than regular salary) and that payment of that debt by the 
United States would eliminate or reduce the debt, unless the employee 
has, not later than 45 days after receipt of advance notice of the debt 
under Sec. 256.4, submitted written confirmation by the

[[Page 186]]

agency which is indebted to the employee that such money is owed and has 
assigned the payment of that money to the Commission; or
    (3) On the basis of any factual or legal argument that was decided 
on the merits adversely to the employee in a court of competent 
jurisdiction.
    (b) In determining whether the Chief Financial Officer's decision 
concerning the existence or amount of the employee's debt is clearly 
erroneous, the hearing official shall be bound by the relevant Federal 
statutes and regulations governing the program which gave rise to the 
debt, and general principles of the law of the United States, if 
relevant.



Sec. 256.12  Standards for determining extreme financial hardship.

    (a) An offset will be considered to produce an extreme financial 
hardship for an employee if the offset prevents the employee from 
meeting the costs necessarily incurred for essential subsistence 
expenses of the employee and his spouse and dependents. Essential 
subsistence expenses consist of the costs incurred for medical care, 
food, housing, clothing, and transportation only.
    (b) In determining whether an offset would prevent the employee from 
meeting the essential subsistence costs described in paragraph (a) of 
this section, the following matters shall be considered--
    (1) The income from all sources of the employee and his spouse and 
dependents;
    (2) The extent to which the assets of the employee and his spouse 
and dependents are available to pay the debt or the essential 
subsistence expenses;
    (3) Whether the essential subsistence costs have been minimized to 
the greatest extent possible;
    (4) The extent to which the employee and his spouse and dependents 
can borrow money to pay the debt or the essential subsistence expenses; 
and
    (5) The extent to which the employee and his spouse and dependents 
have other exceptional expenses that should be taken into account, and 
whether these expenses have been minimized.



Sec. 256.13  Collection of debts on behalf of other agencies by offsetting the pay of a Commission employee.

    (a) Upon completion of the procedures established by the creditor 
agency under 5 U.S.C. 5514, the creditor agency shall forward to the 
Commission a certified statement of the existence of the debt. This 
document shall include a statement that the employee owes the debt, the 
amount and basis of the debt, the date on which payment is due, the date 
on which the claim against the debtor accrued, if different from the 
payment due date, and a statement that agency regulations implementing 5 
U.S.C. 5514 have been approved by the Office of Personnel Management.
    (b) Unless the employee has consented to the salary offset in 
writing or signed a statement acknowledging receipt of the required 
procedures and the writing or statement is attached to the debt claim 
form, the creditor agency must also indicate the actions taken under 
section 5514(b) and give the dates the actions were taken.
    (c) If, after the debt claim has been submitted by the creditor 
agency, the employee transfers to a position in another agency, the 
Commission will certify the total amount of the collection made on the 
debt. One copy of the certification will be furnished to the employee, 
and one copy will be furnished to the creditor agency, together with 
notice of the employee's transfer. The original of the debt claim form 
shall be inserted in the employee's official personnel folder, together 
with the certification of the amount which has been collected. Upon 
receiving the official personnel folder, it will be the responsibility 
of the new paying agency to resume the collection from the individual's 
current pay and notify the employee and the creditor agency of the 
resumption. In cases in which an employee transfers to the Commission 
while a debt is being collected from him by another Federal agency by 
offset, the Commission will resume the collection and notify the 
employee that it is doing so.
    (d) For collections of debts by offset under this section, the 
Commission

[[Page 187]]

will not repeat the procedures prescribed by 5 U.S.C. 5514 and agency 
regulations under section 5514.
    (e) If the Commission receives an incomplete or improperly certified 
debt claim, it will return the claim to the creditor agency with a 
notice that procedures under 5 U.S.C. 5514 must be complied with and a 
complete debt claim must be submitted before any action will be taken to 
collect the debt by offset from the employee's current pay.
    (f) If the Commission receives a complete debt claim, deductions 
shall be scheduled to begin on the next officially established pay 
interval, if possible. A copy of the debt claim form shall be given to 
the debtor, together with notice of the date deductions will commence.
    (g) The Commission will not review the merits of the creditor 
agency's determination with respect to the amount or validity of the 
debt.

Secs. 257.141--257.148  [Reserved]



Sec. 257.149  Program accessibility: Discrimination prohibited.

    Except as otherwise provided in Sec. 257.150 no qualified individual 
with handicaps shall, because the agency's facilities are inaccessible 
to or unusable by individuals with handicaps, be denied the benefits of, 
be excluded from participation in, or otherwise be subjected to 
discrimination under any program or activity conducted by the agency.



Sec. 257.150  Program accessibility: Existing facilities.

    (a) General. The agency shall operate each program or activity so 
that the program or activity, when viewed in its entirety, is readily 
accessible to and usable by individuals with handicaps. This paragraph 
does not--
    (1) Necessarily require the agency to make each of its existing 
facilities accessible to and usable by individuals with handicaps; or
    (2) Require the agency to take any action that it can demonstrate 
would result in a fundamental alteration in the nature of a program or 
activity or in undue financial and administrative burdens. In those 
circumstances where agency personnel believe that the proposed action 
would fundamentally alter the program or activity or would result in 
undue financial and administrative burdens, the agency has the burden of 
proving that compliance with Sec. 257.150(a) would result in such 
alteration or burdens. The decision that compliance would result in such 
alteration or burdens must be made by the agency head or his designee 
after considering all agency resources available for use in the funding 
and operation of the conducted program or activity, and must be 
accompanied by a written statement of the reasons for reaching that 
conclusion. If an action would result in such an alteration or such 
burdens, the agency shall take any other action that would not result in 
such an alteration or such burdens but would nevertheless ensure that 
individuals with handicaps receive the benefits and services of the 
program or activity.
    (b) Methods--(1) General. The agency may comply with the 
requirements of this section through such means as redesign of 
equipment, reassignment of services to accessible buildings, assignments 
of aides to beneficiaries, home visits, delivery of services at 
alternate accessible sites, alteration of existing facilities and 
construction of new facilities, use of accessible rolling stock, or any 
other methods that result in making its programs or activities readily 
accessible to and usable by individuals with handicaps. The agency is 
not required to make structural changes in existing facilities where 
other methods are effective in achieving compliance with this section. 
The agency, in making alterations to existing buildings, shall meet 
accessibility requirements to the extent compelled by the Architectural 
Barriers Act of 1968, as amended (42 U.S.C. 4151 through 4157), and any 
regulations implementing it. In choosing among available methods for 
meeting the requirements of this section, the agency shall give priority 
to those methods that offer programs and activities to qualified 
individuals with handicaps in the most integrated setting appropriate.

[[Page 191]]

    (2) [Reserved]
    (c) Time period for compliance. The agency shall comply with the 
obligations established under this section by October 8, 1987, except 
that where structural changes in facilities are undertaken, such changes 
shall be made by July 10, 1990, but in any event as expeditiously as 
possible.
    (d) Transition plan. In the event that structural changes to 
facilities will be undertaken to achieve program accessibility, the 
agency shall develop, by January 11, 1988, a transition plan setting 
forth the steps necessary to complete such changes. The agency shall 
provide an opportunity to interested persons, including individuals with 
handicaps or organizations representing individuals with handicaps, to 
participate in the development of the transition plan by submitting 
comments (both oral and written). A copy of the transition plan shall be 
made available for public inspection. The plan shall, at a minimum--
    (1) Identify physical obstacles in the agency's facilities that 
limit the accessibility of its programs or activities to individuals 
with handicaps;
    (2) Describe in detail the methods that will be used to make the 
facilities accessible;
    (3) Specify the schedule for taking the steps necessary to achieve 
compliance with this section, and if the time period of the transition 
plan is longer than one year, identify steps that will be taken during 
each year of the transition period;
    (4) Indicate the official responsible for implementation of the 
plan.



Sec. 257.151  Program accessibility: New construction and alterations.

    Each building or part of a building that is constructed or altered 
by, on behalf of, or for the use of the agency shall be designed, 
constructed, or altered so as to be readily accessible to and usable by 
individuals with handicaps. The definitions, requirements, and standards 
of the Architectural Barriers Act (42 U.S.C. 4151 through 4157), as 
established in 41 CFR 101-19.600 to 101-19.607, apply to buildings 
covered by this section.



Secs. 257.152--257.159  [Reserved]



Sec. 257.160  Communications.

    (a) The agency shall take appropriate steps to ensure effective 
communication with applicants, participants, personnel of other Federal 
entities, and members of the public.
    (1) The agency shall furnish appropriate auxiliary aids where 
necessary to afford an individual with handicaps an equal opportunity to 
participate in, and enjoy the benefits of, a program or activity 
conducted by the agency.
    (i) In determining what type of auxiliary aid is necessary, the 
agency shall give primary consideration to the requests of the 
individual with handicaps.
    (ii) The agency need not provide individually prescribed devices, 
readers for personal use or study, or other devices of a personal 
nature.
    (2) Where the agency communicates with applicants and beneficiaries 
by telephone, telecommunication devices for deaf persons (TDD's) or 
equally effective telecommunication systems shall be used.
    (b) The agency shall ensure that interested persons, including 
persons with impaired vision or hearing, can obtain information as to 
the existence and location of accessible services, activities, and 
facilities.
    (c) The agency shall provide signs at a primary entrance to each of 
its inaccessible facilities, directing users to a location at which they 
can obtain information about accessible facilities. The international 
symbol for accessibility shall be used at each primary entrance of an 
accessible facility.
    (d) This section does not require the agency to take any action that 
it can demonstrate would result in a fundamental alteration in the 
nature of a program or activity or in undue financial and administrative 
burdens. In those circumstances where agency personnel believe that the 
proposed action would fundamentally alter the program or activity or 
would result in undue financial and administrative burdens, the agency 
has the burden of proving that compliance with Sec. 257.160 would result 
in such alteration or burdens. The decision that compliance would result 
in such alteration or burdens must be

[[Page 192]]

made by the agency head or his designee after considering all agency 
resources available for use in the funding and operation of the 
conducted program or activity, and must be accompanied by a written 
statement of the reasons for reaching that conclusion. If an action 
required to comply with this section would result in such an alteration 
or such burdens, the agency shall take any other action that would not 
result in such an alteration or such burdens but would nevertheless 
ensure that, to the maximum extent possible, individuals with handicaps 
receive the benefits and services of the program or activity.



Secs. 257.161--257.169  [Reserved]



Sec. 257.170  Compliance procedures.

    (a) Except as provided in paragraph (b) of this section, this 
section applies to all allegations of discrimination on the basis of 
handicap in programs or activities conducted by the agency.

section 504 with respect to employment according to the procedures 
established by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in 29 CFR 
Part 1613 pursuant to section 501 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (29 
U.S.C. 791).
    (c) Responsibility for implementation and operation of this section 
shall be vested in the Director of Equal Opportunity.
    (d) The agency shall accept and investigate all complete complaints 
for which it has jurisdiction. All complete complaints must be filed 
within 180 days of the alleged act of discrimination. The agency may 
extend this time period for good cause.
    (e) If the agency receives a complaint over which it does not have 
jurisdiction, it shall promptly notify the complainant and shall make 
reasonable efforts to refer the complaint to the appropriate government 
entity.
    (f) The agency shall notify the Architectural and Transportation 
Barriers Compliance Board upon receipt of any complaint alleging that a 
building or facility that is subject to the Architectural Barriers Act 
of 1968, as amended (42 U.S.C. 4151 through 4157), is not readily 
accessible to and usable by individuals with handicaps.
    (g) Within 180 days of the receipt of a complete complaint for which

1 This table does not purport to list sections of 35 CFR (1960) which
  were omitted from this revision, and which were repealed by one or
  another of the documents promulgating the revision. Those sections are
  included in Table 2. Nor does this table purport to set forth omitted
  orders dealing with the Canal Zone which were not codified in 35 CFR
  (1960) and which continue to be in full force and effect. Examples of
  these are those provisions of Exec. Order No. 1888, Feb. 2, 1914, as
  amended, relating to leave of Canal Zone employees; and Exec. Order
  No. 2455, Sept. 15, 1916, transferring to the Governor of the ``Panama
  Canal'' (now Governor of Canal Zone) the administration of the Federal
  Employees' Compensation Act (5 U.S.C. 751 et seq.) with respect to
  Federal employees in the Canal Zone.
