Coast Guard


National Maritime Security Advisory Committee

AGENCY: Coast Guard, DHS.

ACTION: Committee Management; Notice of Federal Advisory Committee 
Meeting; correction.


SUMMARY: The Coast Guard published in the Federal Register of May 1, 
2012, a notice announcing a National Maritime Security Advisory 
Committee (NMSAC) partially closed public meeting on May 15-16, 2012, 
in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. This notice corrects that 
previous notice to add an explanation for why 15-days advance notice 
was not given.

DATES: The Committee will meet in closed session on Tuesday, May 15, 
2012 from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and in open session on Tuesday, May 15, 
2012 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. and Wednesday, May 16, 2012 from 9 a.m. to 
12 p.m. This meeting may close early if all business is finished. 
Written material and requests to make oral presentations should reach 
us on or before May 9, 2012.

ADDRESSES: The Committee will meet in closed session at the National 
Maritime Intelligence Center and in open session at the American Bureau 
of Shipping, 1400 Key Blvd., Suite 800, Arlington, VA 22209.

2nd Street SW., Stop 7581, Washington, DC 20593-7581; telephone 202-
372-1108 or email ryan.f.owens@uscg.mil.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Coast Guard's May 1, 2012 notice of the 
May 15-16, 2012, NMSAC meeting inadvertently failed to contain an 
explanation for its publication less than 15 calendar days prior to the 
meeting, as required by General Services Administration rules 41 CFR 
102-3.150. The reason the notice was published only 14 calendar days 
prior to the meeting was an administrative delay due to publication 
schedule and extensive meeting preparation. The Coast Guard regrets the 
delay in publication, but notes that the notice was publicly available 
on the Federal Register Web site 13 calendar days prior to the meeting. 
Additionally, all known interested parties were made aware of the 
meeting with sufficient time for planning purposes.
    It is critical that this meeting be held on the announced meeting 
date because the advisory committee members have limited availability 
for the remainder of the calendar year. Delays in committee discussions 
could have significant ramifications for ongoing Coast Guard studies 
and evaluations on the agenda for the upcoming meeting. Maintaining the 
current meeting schedule allows the Coast Guard to continue 
deliberations and make forward progress regarding multiple maritime 
security initiatives.
    If you have been adversely affected by the delay in publishing the 
notice, contact Mr. Ryan Owens (see FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT) 
and the Coast Guard will make every effort to accommodate you.

    Dated: April 30, 2012.
Michael W. Mumbach,
Acting Chief, Office of Regulations and Administrative Law (CG-0943), 
U.S. Coast Guard.
