II. Regulatory History

    We did not publish a notice of proposed rulemaking for this rule. 
Under Title 5 of the United States Code (U.S.C.), section 553(b)(A), 
the Coast Guard finds that this rule is exempt from notice and public 
comment rulemaking requirements because these changes involve rules of 
agency organization, procedure, or practice. In addition, the Coast 
Guard finds that notice and comment procedures are unnecessary under 5 
U.S.C. 553(b)(B), as this rule consists only of technical and editorial 
corrections, and these changes will have no substantive effect on the 
public. Under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), the Coast Guard finds that, for the 
same reasons, good cause exists for making this final rule effective 
upon publication in the Federal Register.

III. Basis and Purpose

    This rule, which becomes effective on July 28, 2017, makes 
technical and editorial corrections throughout titles 33 and 46. These 
changes are necessary to correct errors, change addresses, and make 
other non-substantive changes that improve the clarity of the Code of 
Federal Regulations (CFR). This rule does not create or change any 
substantive requirements.
    This final rule is issued under the authority of 5 U.S.C. 552(a) 
and 553, 14 U.S.C. 2(3), 633; 33 U.S.C. 471 and 499; 46 U.S.C. 2103, 
3306, 3703, 5104, and 7701; and Department of Homeland Security 
Delegation No. 0170.1.

IV. Discussion of the Rule

    The Coast Guard periodically issues technical, organizational, and 
conforming amendments to existing regulations in titles 33 and 46 of 
the CFR. These ``technical amendments'' provide the public with more 
accurate and current regulatory information, but do not change the 
effect on the public of any Coast Guard regulations.
    This rule amends the following sections of title 33 in the CFR:
    In Sec.  3.04-1, the Coast Guard adds new paragraph (c), which 
includes information about the location and boundaries of the 
Activities Europe Marine Inspection Zone in relation to the Coast Guard 
``Atlantic Area'' to reflect a recent organizational change that placed 
Activities Europe under the operational and administrative control of 
the Coast Guard's Atlantic Area Command. The change does not involve a 
boundary move and only clarifies Sec.  3.04-1 to describe the location 
of the eastern boundary, and the supervising commander. That eastern 
boundary is already established in the Activities Far East regulation 
at 33 CFR 3.70-20; this change states the same boundary from the 
perspective of Activities Europe. Activities Europe has reported to 
Coast Guard Atlantic Area (LANTAREA) since 2006 (see 71 FR 35816).
    Section 20.302(b) and (c) are revised to include the toll free 
telephone and fax numbers for the U.S. Coast Guard Administrative Law 
Judge Docketing Center.
    The tables of Sec.  20.304(d) and (g) are revised to accommodate 
different methods of mail delivery to include Priority or Express Mail 
with signature confirmation as an alternative to Certified Mail, return 
receipt.
    In Sec.  64.03(b)(1), the text ``Subchapter D'' is replaced with 
the text ``Subchapter E'' to correct a longstanding error in the cross-
reference. Subchapter D, ``International Navigation Rules,'' does not 
address dredging pipelines, which are the subject of Sec.  64.03(b)(1). 
Annex V to subchapter E, ``Inland Navigation Rules,'' addresses lights 
on dredging pipelines. Regulations for these lights have never been in 
subchapter D.
    This rule revises Sec.  67.10-25(a) to remove a redundant address.
    This rule corrects a typographical error in one of the geographical 
coordinates in Sec.  80.155(b).
    Also, this rule corrects a typographical error in Sec.  80.502(a) 
by removing the letter ``s'' from ``Little Egg Inlet.''
    In Sec.  82.5, this rule changes the text ``33 CFR 88.30(h)'' to 
``33 CFR 83.30(h),'' to conform to the regulatory redesignation made by 
a 2014 final rule (see 79 FR 37898, July 2, 2014).
    This rule revises Sec. Sec.  83.09(e)(i) and 83.24(d) by adding 
minor rewordings and terminology revisions to conform to the 
International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea (COLREGS).
    This rule redesignates existing Sec.  83.24(i), as new paragraph 
(j), and existing paragraph (j) as new paragraph (i). The new paragraph 
(i), removes the text ``paragraph (a), (c), or (i)'' and adds, in its 
place, the text ``paragraphs (a), (c), or (j).'' These changes are made 
to conform to COLREGS.
    This rule amends Sec.  84.15 by redesignating paragraph (b) as 
(b)(i) and redesignating paragraph (c) as (b)(ii), and redesignating 
the note to paragraph (c) as the note to paragraph (b)(ii) to align CFR 
numbering to conform to COLREGS.
    This rule updates the Coast Guard's address information in 
Sec. Sec.  104.400(b), 120.305(a), 133.3(b), 133.25(c), 135.9, 136.3, 
136.5(b), 136.101(b), 137.15, 138.45(a), 151.1510(a)(3)(ii), 
151.2025(b), 151.2026(b), 157.100(b), 157.200(b), 159.4(a), 159.12(c), 
159.15(a) and (c), 159.17(a), and 159.19(a). Also, in Sec.  138.45(a), 
the Coast Guard updates the phone number and fax number for the Coast 
Guard's National Pollution Funds Center.
    In Sec.  105.110(b), this rule revises the internal cross-
references to conform to regulatory changes made by a 2007 rule (72 FR 
3492, Jan. 25, 2007), which does not affect the meaning of the cross-
references.
    This rule amends the authority citation in part 109. This change 
makes necessary conforming amendments to reflect the transfers of 
functions from the Secretary of War to the Secretary of Transportation 
to the Secretary of Homeland Security, and to eliminate superfluous 
references in law.
    This rule revises Sec.  110.79c to correct erroneous coordinates 
describing the boundaries of the anchorage at Fish Creek Harbor, WI and 
to add a note that the Town of Gibraltar, WI regulates the use of 
vessels and moorings in that area. This technical amendment does not 
alter the existing boundaries of the anchorage.
    This rule redesignates Sec. Sec.  115.10 through 115.30. Those 
redesignations are as follows: Current Sec.  115.10, ``Limiting date in 
permits,'' becomes Sec.  115.15; current Sec.  115.15, ``Permit 
bonds,'' becomes Sec.  115.20; current

[[Page 35075]]

Sec.  115.20, ``Transfer of permits,'' becomes Sec.  115.30; and 
current Sec.  115.30, ``Sufficiency of State authority for bridges'' 
becomes Sec.  115.10. The purpose of these redesignations is to have 
the state authority regulations appear together in the CFR.
    This rule amends Sec. Sec.  115.05 and 115.50(e) introductory text 
and (e)(1) by replacing the word ``extract'' with ``excerpt.'' The 
purpose of this change is to use a term more clearly understood to mean 
that the applicant of a bridge permit should ``select'' a section, 
instead of ``pulling out'' a section from the charter, statement of 
ownership, minutes of the organization, or proceedings when applying 
for a bridge permit. In addition, this rule corrects grammatical errors 
in Sec.  115.50(e) by adding the word ``an'' before ``excerpt'' and 
adding the word ``the'' before ``minutes.''
    This rule amends language in Sec.  115.50 ``Application for bridge 
permits'' paragraph (h)(2) by changing the opening phrase as follows: 
(1) ``Currents'' is being changed to ``current'' because inland rivers 
have one current, which only flows one way; (2) ``tidal water'' is 
being added to clarify that the current flows two ways (ebbs and 
flows); (3) ``strength of current'' is being removed because it is a 
function of the navigation study, which comes prior to the bridge 
application process; and (4) ``low and high water'' is removed because 
of redundancy in paragraph (h)(3).
    This rule clarifies a phrase in Sec.  115.50(h)(3) by replacing the 
text ``the plane above which flood waters have not remained more than 2 
percent of the time'' with the text ``the 2 percent flowline (the plane 
above which flood waters have not remained more than 2 percent of the 
time)'' to better describe the records of river heights to be shown if 
they are available.
    This rule amends Sec.  117.55(a) by replacing ``through'' with 
``and'' because there are only two other sections within the range 
described: another section was removed by a 2006 rule (71 FR 70305, 
Dec. 4, 2006).
    This rule amends Sec.  155.480(b)(2)(iii) by changing the internal 
cross-reference to conform to regulatory redesignations made by a 2013 
rule (78 FR 42642, July 16, 2013), which does not affect the meaning of 
the cross-references. A 2015 technical amendment attempted to correct 
the cross-reference but inadvertently omitted the citations to 
paragraphs (b)(2) and (3).
    This rule amends Sec. Sec.  155.1065(a), 155.1070(f), 155.5035(k), 
155.5061(a), (c), and (f), 155.5065(a), 155.5067(a), and section 6.5 of 
appendix B to part 155 to change the name of the office listed in these 
regulations to reflect delegation from Commandant (CG-CVC) to 
Commandant (CG-MER).
    This rule amends Sec. Sec.  155.1065(h), 155.1070(g), and 
155.5075(a) and (b) to change the name of the office listed in these 
regulations to reflect delegation from Director of Inspections and 
Compliance (CG-5PC) to Director of Incident Management and Preparedness 
Policy (CG-5RI).
    Sections 155.4025 and 155.4055(d) and (f) are revised to show a 
change in the office name from ``Director of Prevention Policy (CG-
5P)'' to ``Assistant Commandant for Response Policy (CG-5R)'' to 
reflect that office's delegation.
    This rule amends the formatting and specific portions of the text 
in the Table to Sec.  161.12(c) for clarity and ease of reading. The 
changes include:
    (a) Formatting changes to disaggregate one column into two columns 
and add letters and numbers to each row;
    (b) Moving the Maritime Mobile Service Identifier (MMSI) from the 
``VTS and VMRS Centers'' column to the ``Center call sign and MMSI'' 
column; and
    (c) Removing the name of the ``Center MMSI call sign'' column, and 
adding in its place, ``Center call sign and MMSI.''
    This rule also amends the table heading and text in Table to Sec.  
161.12(c) for the following reasons:
    (a) Revise the frequency listed for Buzzards Bay Control from 
``156.600 MHz (Ch. 12)'' to ``156.550 MHz (Ch. 11)'' to reflect the new 
listening frequency, as approved by the Federal Communications 
Commission;
    (b) Correct a longitude coordinate for Buzzards Bay Control to 
accurately reflect the correct position of the Buzzards Bay Entrance 
Light;
    (c) Revise the coordinate location for Puget Sound Seattle Traffic 
(Ch. 5A) to reflect the closure of the Canadian traffic management area 
``Tofino Traffic.'' As a result of this closure, we are changing the 
description of the sub-areas for our joint U.S./Canadian Vessel Traffic 
Services (VTS) area. Neither the size of the area has changed nor has 
the radio frequency. The change only reflects the way the Coast Guard 
describes and identifies the sub-areas;
    (d) Revise the name of the traffic management area Puget Sound from 
``Tofino Traffic 003160012'' to ``Prince Rupert Traffic 003160013,'' 
and to update the coordinates for the monitoring area to reflect the 
closure of Tofino Traffic; and
    (e) Revise the coordinate location for Puget Sound Victoria Traffic 
to reflect the closure of the Canadian traffic management area ``Tofino 
Traffic.''
    This rule amends the Table to Sec.  161.45(b) by revising the 
heading and by removing an ``*'' to correct a typographical error.
    This rule amends Sec.  161.50 by adding symbols to the coordinates 
for Vessel Traffic Service San Francisco to denote degrees.
    This rule amends the introduction to Sec.  161.55 by removing the 
text referring to the waters known as ``the Strait of Juan de Fuca, 
Haro Strait, Boundary Pass, and the Strait of Georgia to the Washington 
State coastline'' and the areas covering those navigable waters 
including ``Puget Sound, Hood Canal, Possession Sound, the San Juan 
Island Archipelago, Rosario Strait, Guemes Channel, Bellingham Bay, the 
U.S. waters of the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the Strait of Georgia,'' 
and adding, in its place, reference to the ``U.S. navigable waters of 
the Salish Sea.'' In 2009, the U.S. Board on Geographic Names made a 
determination that waters previously described in the VTS Puget Sound 
should now be recognized as the ``U.S. navigable waters of Salish 
Sea,'' which replaces the removed text. The deleted text is no longer 
necessary to describe the VTS Puget Sound area. Also, we are converting 
some of the latitude and longitude coordinates so that they are in a 
more common positioning format of degrees, minutes, and decimal minutes 
instead of degrees, minutes, and seconds.
    This rule amends Sec.  161.55(a) by removing the text referring to 
all the waters including ``Strait of Juan de Fuca and its offshore 
approaches, southern Georgia Strait, the Gulf and San Juan 
Archipelagos, Rosario Strait, Boundary Pass and Haro Strait, and Strait 
of Georgia,'' and adding in its place, reference to ``all navigable 
waters of the Salish Sea.'' In 2009, the U.S. Board on Geographic Names 
made a determination that waters previously described in the VTS Puget 
Sound should now be recognized as the ``U.S. navigable waters of Salish 
Sea,'' which replaces the removed text for the same reasons, discussed 
in the preceding paragraph. In paragraph (a), this rule also removes 
reference to ``Tofino'' and adds a reference to ``Prince Rupert'' to 
reflect the closure of Tofino Traffic.
    This rule amends Sec.  162.205(a)(3)(i) and (b)(2)(i) by updating 
the cross-reference from ``part 80'' to ``part 83'' to correctly 
reference the inland navigation rules in 33 CFR part 83 instead of the 
international navigation rules in 33 CFR part 80.
    This rule amends Sec. Sec.  164.33(a)(3)(ii) and 164.72(b)(2)(i)(C) 
by removing

[[Page 35076]]

references to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) from this 
section, as the USACE no longer issues river current publications.
    This rule amends the note to paragraph (b) of Sec.  164.46 by 
adding examples of the types of fishing industry vessels, consistent 
with 46 U.S.C. 2101. The 2015 rule covering Automatic Identification 
System requirements (80 FR 5282, Jan. 30, 2015) amended Sec.  
164.46(b)(2) to include fishing industry vessels, and described them as 
``any vessel engaged in the fishing trade.''
    This rule amends Sec.  165.100(d)(5) by removing typographical 
errors from the coordinates listed in this section and changing the 
coordinates to accurately reflect the correct position for Buzzards Bay 
Entrance Light.
    This rule removes Sec.  165.T0704 and adds Sec.  165.704 in its 
place. This change reflects that this is a permanent regulation and not 
a temporary regulation. Also, in paragraph (c)(3), the telephone number 
is updated.
    This rule removes Sec.  165.766 from the CFR as it is duplicative 
and unnecessary. Section 165.766 became effective after a 2007 interim 
rule (72 FR 43535, August 6, 2007) was published. However, a 2008 final 
rule (73 FR 27746, May 14, 2008) made a slight boundary change from the 
2007 interim rule, and finalized the interim rule, under a new section 
number, Sec.  165.770.
    This rule revises the heading of Sec.  174.123 by removing 
``numbered'' from the title. Also, we remove the title, ``Report of 
Certificates of Number Issued to Boats, to the Coast Guard'' from Coast 
Guard Form CGHQ-3923 because the title does not reflect the contents of 
the form. The Coast Guard plans to seek approval from the Office of 
Management and Budget (OMB) to create a new version of the form with a 
different title.
    This rule revises Sec.  181.3 by removing the term and definition 
of ``Model year'' because it is superseded by the model year set in the 
Coast Guard Authorization Act of 2015 (see Pub. L. 114-120, 130 Stat. 
27, February 8, 2016).
    This rule makes changes in the following sections of title 46 in 
the CFR:
    This rule amends Sec.  4.07-10(a)(4) by removing reference to Coast 
Guard Form CG-2636, as this form has been cancelled. There is no impact 
on the public because this form was used internally by Coast Guard 
investigative officers.
    This rule replaces the name of the organization accepted by the 
Commandant to receive and process casualty data in Sec.  28.80(d)(1) 
from ``Marine Index Bureau'' to ``Verisk Insurance Solutions.'' Verisk 
Insurance Solutions is the same company as Marine Index Bureau; 
however, the company name was changed. This rule also removes ``Floor 
22-8'' from the address listed in Sec.  28.80(d)(1) because the current 
address for Verisk Insurance Solutions does not contain this 
information.
    This rule updates the Coast Guard's address information in 
Sec. Sec.  28.1105(a), 31.10-5(a), 39.1003, 44.320(a), 50.10-23, 63.10-
1, 63.25-9(a), 69.15(a), 71.65-15(a)(2), 107.317(b), 110.25-3(a)(1), 
116.202(a), 127.120(b), 153.9(b), 154.22(a), 161.010-1(a), 161.010-
4(a), 162.017-6(a), 162.018-8(a), 162.050-7(a), 162.060-10(a) and 
(b)(1), 162.060-14(b), 162.060-42(a)(3) and (g), 170.010, 170.100(b), 
177.202(d), 177.410(b)(5), and 189.55-15(a)(2).
    This rule amends Sec.  39.2007(e) and (f) by correcting an 
inaccurate cross-reference inadvertently made in the 2013 rule (78 FR 
42596, July 16, 2013). The existing cross-reference is to Sec.  
39.2009(c) and (d), which do not exist. This rule amends tables to 
Sec. Sec.  58.50-5(a), 58.50-10(a), and 182.440(a)(1) by shifting 
particular rows in each table to correct a misprint. In each existing 
table the contents of the final row are incorrectly shifted to the left 
such that the contents do not line up with the headings. This rule also 
reformats the table titles.
    This rule amends the authority citation for part 110 by removing 
``33 U.S.C. 1509'' because Deepwater Ports' regulations in 33 CFR 
subchapter NN no longer refer to 46 CFR subchapter J ``Electrical 
Engineering'' regulations.
    This rule amends Sec.  110.15-1 by removing the definitions of 
``Marine inspector or inspector'' and ``Qualified person'' as these 
terms are not used in 46 CFR subchapter J. This rule amends Sec.  
111.33-1 by removing an outdated reference to Sec.  111.30-21, which 
was removed from the CFR in 1996 (61 FR 4132, Feb. 2, 1996).
    This rule amends Sec. Sec.  111.105-19 and 120.340(p) by correcting 
a typographical error in the cross-referenced citations. The existing 
cross-reference in Sec.  111.105-19 is to Sec.  111.105-19 itself, but 
should be to Sec.  111.105-9 on explosion-proof and flameproof 
equipment. The existing cross-reference in Sec.  120.340(p) is to Table 
120.3340(p), but should be to Table 1 to Sec.  120.340(p).

V. Regulatory Analyses

    We developed this rule after considering numerous statutes and 
Executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses 
based on these statutes or Executive orders.

A. Regulatory Planning and Review

    Executive Orders 12866 (Regulatory Planning and Review) and 13563 
(Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review) direct agencies to assess 
the costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, if 
regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize 
net benefits (including potential economic, environmental, public 
health and safety effects, distributive impacts, and equity). Executive 
Order 13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying costs and 
benefits, of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting 
flexibility. Executive Order 13771 (Reducing Regulation and Controlling 
Regulatory Costs) directs agencies to reduce regulation and control 
regulatory costs and provides that ``for every one new regulation 
issued, at least two prior regulations be identified for elimination, 
and that the cost of planned regulations be prudently managed and 
controlled through a budgeting process.''
    The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has not designated this 
rule a significant regulatory action under section 3(f) of Executive 
Order 12866. Accordingly, OMB has not reviewed it. Because this rule is 
not a significant regulatory action, this rule is exempt from the 
requirements of Executive Order 13771. See the OMB memorandum titled 
``Interim Guidance Implementing Section 2 of the Executive Order of 
January 30, 2017 titled `Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory 
Costs' '' (February 2, 2017). A regulatory analysis (RA) follows.
    Because this rule involves non-substantive changes and internal 
agency practices and procedures, it will not impose any additional 
costs on the public. The benefit of the non-substantive changes is 
increased clarity of regulations.

B. Small Entities

    Under the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601-612, rules 
exempt from the notice and comment requirements of the Administrative 
Procedure Act are not required to examine the impact of the rule on 
small entities. Nevertheless, we have considered whether this rule 
would have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of 
small entities. The term ``small entities'' comprises small businesses, 
not-for-profit organizations that are independently owned and operated 
and are not dominant in their fields, and governmental jurisdictions 
with populations of less than 50,000.

[[Page 35077]]

    There is no cost to this final rule, and we do not expect it will 
have an impact on small entities because the provisions of this rule 
are technical and non-substantive. It will have no substantive effect 
on the public and will impose no additional costs. Therefore, the Coast 
Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this final rule will not 
have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small 
entities.

C. Assistance for Small Entities

    Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement 
Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104-121), we want to assist small 
entities in understanding this rule so that they can better evaluate 
its effects on them and participate in the rulemaking. If the rule 
would affect your small business, organization, or governmental 
jurisdiction and you have questions concerning its provisions or 
options for compliance, please consult LCDR Nicole Burgess by phone at 
202-372-1493 or via email at [email protected]. The Coast Guard 
will not retaliate against small entities that question or complain 
about this rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard.
    Small businesses may send comments on the actions of Federal 
employees who enforce, or otherwise determine compliance with, Federal 
regulations to the Small Business and Agriculture Regulatory 
Enforcement Ombudsman and the Regional Small Business Regulatory 
Fairness Boards. The Ombudsman evaluates these actions annually and 
rates each agency's responsiveness to small business. If you wish to 
comment on actions by employees of the Coast Guard, call 1-888-REG-FAIR 
(1-888-734-3247).

D. Collection of Information

    This rule calls for no new collection of information under the 
Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520).

E. Federalism

    A rule has implications for federalism under Executive Order 13132 
(``Federalism'') if it has a substantial direct effect on States, on 
the relationship between the national government and the States, or on 
the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels 
of government. We have analyzed this rule under that order and have 
determined that it is consistent with the fundamental federalism 
principles and preemption requirements described in Executive Order 
13132.

F. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act

    The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (2 U.S.C. 1531-1538) 
requires Federal agencies to assess the effects of their discretionary 
regulatory actions. In particular, the Act addresses actions that may 
result in the expenditure by a State, local, or tribal government, in 
the aggregate, or by the private sector of $100,000,000 (adjusted for 
inflation) or more in any 1 year. Though this final rule will not 
result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the effects of this rule 
elsewhere in this preamble.

G. Taking of Private Property

    This final rule will not cause a taking of private property or 
otherwise have taking implications under Executive Order 12630 
(``Governmental Actions and Interference with Constitutionally 
Protected Property Rights'').

H. Civil Justice Reform

    This final rule meets applicable standards in sections 3(a) and 
3(b)(2) of Executive Order 12988 (``Civil Justice Reform''), to 
minimize litigation, eliminate ambiguity, and reduce burden.

I. Protection of Children

    We have analyzed this final rule under Executive Order 13045 
(``Protection of Children from Environmental Health Risks and Safety 
Risks''). This final rule is not an economically significant rule and 
would not create an environmental risk to health or risk to safety that 
might disproportionately affect children.

J. Indian Tribal Governments

    This final rule does not have tribal implications under Executive 
Order 13175 (``Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal 
Governments''), because it does not have a substantial direct effect on 
one or more Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal 
Government and Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and 
responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes.

K. Energy Effects

    We have analyzed this final rule under Executive Order 13211 
(``Actions Concerning Regulations That Significantly Affect Energy 
Supply, Distribution, or Use''). We have determined that it is not a 
``significant energy action'' under that order because it is not a 
``significant regulatory action'' under Executive Order 12866 and is 
not likely to have a significant adverse effect on the supply, 
distribution, or use of energy. The Administrator of OMB's Office of 
Information and Regulatory Affairs has not designated it as a 
significant energy action. Therefore, it does not require a Statement 
of Energy Effects under Executive Order 13211.

L. Technical Standards

    The National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act (15 U.S.C. 272 
note) directs agencies to use voluntary consensus standards in their 
regulatory activities unless the agency provides Congress, through the 
OMB, with an explanation of why using these standards would be 
inconsistent with applicable law or otherwise impractical. Voluntary 
consensus standards are technical standards (e.g., specifications of 
materials, performance, design, or operation; test methods; sampling 
procedures; and related management systems practices) that are 
developed or adopted by voluntary consensus standards bodies.
    This final rule does not use technical standards. Therefore, we did 
not consider the use of voluntary consensus standards.

M. Environment

    We have analyzed this rule under Department of Homeland Security 
Management Directive 023-01 and Commandant Instruction M16475.lD, which 
guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental 
Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321-4370f), and have concluded that this 
action is one of a category of actions that do not individually or 
cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. This 
rule is categorically excluded under section 2.B.2 and figure 2-1, 
paragraphs (34)(a) and (34)(b) of the Instruction. This final rule 
involves amendments to regulations that are editorial or procedural. A 
Record of Environmental Consideration (REC) supporting this 
determination is available in the docket where indicated under 
ADDRESSES.

Notes:
\1\ Maritime Mobile Service Identifier (MMSI) is a unique nine-digit number assigned that identifies ship
  stations, ship earth stations, coast stations, coast earth stations, and group calls for use by a digital
  selective calling (DSC) radio, an INMARSAT ship earth station or AIS. AIS requirements are set forth in Sec.
  161.21. The requirements set forth in Sec.  Sec.   161.21 and 164.46 of this subchapter apply in those areas
  denoted with an MMSI number, except for Louisville and Los Angeles/Long Beach.
\2\ In the event of a communication failure, difficulties or other safety factors, the Center may direct or
  permit a user to monitor and report on any other designated monitoring frequency or the bridge-to-bridge
  navigational frequency, 156.650 MHz (Channel 13) or 156.375 MHz (Channel 67), to the extent that doing so
  provides a level of safety beyond that provided by other means. The bridge-to-bridge navigational frequency,
  156.650 MHz (Ch. 13) is used in certain monitoring areas where the level of reporting does not warrant a
  designated frequency.
\3\ All geographic coordinates (latitude and longitude) are expressed in North American Datum of 1983 (NAD 83).
\4\ Some monitoring areas extend beyond navigable waters. Although not required, users are strongly encouraged
  to maintain a listening watch on the designated monitoring frequency in these areas. Otherwise, they are
  required to maintain watch as stated in 47 CFR 80.148.
\5\ In addition to the vessels denoted in Sec.   161.16, requirements set forth in subpart B of this part also
  apply to any vessel transiting VMRS Buzzards Bay required to carry a bridge-to-bridge radiotelephone by part
  26 of this chapter.
\6\ Until otherwise directed, full VTS services will not be available in the Calcasieu Channel, Calcasieu River
  Channel, and the ICW from MM 260 to MM 191. Vessels may contact Port Arthur Traffic on the designated VTS
  frequency to request advisories, but are not required to monitor the VTS frequency in this sector.
\7\ A Cooperative Vessel Traffic Service was established by the United States and Canada within adjoining
  waters. The appropriate Center administers the rules issued by both nations; however, enforces only its own
  set of rules within its jurisdiction. Note: the bridge-to-bridge navigational frequency, 156.650 MHz (Ch. 13),
  is not so designated in Canadian waters, therefore users are encouraged and permitted to make passing
  arrangements on the designated monitoring frequencies.

    The Vessel Traffic Service Puget Sound area consists of the U.S. 
navigable waters of the Salish Sea from a line drawn from the 
Washington State coastline at 48[deg]23.133' N., 124[deg]43.616' W. on 
Cape Flattery to the Cape Flattery Light at 48[deg]23.5' N., 
124[deg]44.2' W. on Tatoosh Island, due west to the U.S. Territorial 
Sea Boundary; thence northward along the U.S. Territorial Sea Boundary 
to its intersection with the U.S./Canada International Boundary; thence 
east along the U.S./Canada International Boundary to 49[deg]00.1' N., 
122[deg]45.3' W. (International Boundary Range C Rear Light).
    (a) Vessel Traffic Service Puget Sound participates in a U.S./
Canadian Cooperative Vessel Traffic Service (CVTS) to jointly manage 
vessel traffic in the Juan de Fuca Region. The CVTS for the Juan de 
Fuca Region consists of all navigable waters of the Salish Sea, bounded 
on the northwest by 48[deg]35.749' N.; and on the southwest by 
48[deg]23.5' N.; and on the west by the rhumb line joining 
48[deg]35.749' N., 124[deg]47.5' W. with 48[deg]23.5' N., 
124[deg]48.616' W.; and on the northeast by a line drawn along 49[deg] 
N. from Vancouver Island to Semiahmoo Bay; and on the southeast, by a 
line drawn from McCurdy Point on the Quimper Peninsula to Point 
Partridge on Whidbey Island. Canadian and United States Vessel Traffic 
Centers (Prince Rupert, B.C., Canada; Vancouver, B.C., Canada; and 
Seattle, WA) manage traffic within the CVTS area irrespective of the 
International Boundary.
