Proposal Calls For

Ship's Spare Parts

To Be Based Ashore

The Maritime Subsidy Board (MSB) has authorized publication in the Federal Register of a no- tice that it is proposing a new policy permitting spare parts to be based ashore. The proposal also specifies a predetermined lim- it on the amount of construction- differential subsidy (CDS) for the cost of machinery and electric plant spare parts which are in ad- dition to those required by the

American Bureau of Shipping (ABS). This policy will apply to all ships now under contract and will form a basis for permitting

CDS for a Change Under Con- tract, provided that a request for subsidy is submitted to MarAd before delivery of the vessel.

Presently, CDS is permitted only for spare parts carried aboard ship, except for spare pro- pellers and tail shafts. The pro- posed policy provides a table of 23 classes (based on cost) of ma- chinery and the applicable per- missible percentage of the base cost of the equipment which the spares may represent. The allow- ance for the spares in excess of

ABS requirements (which are customarily included in the base cost of the equipment) will be included in the contract price for all new contracts. Allowances will be fixed, and changes in existing contracts will be computed based on the original estimate. The choice of necessary spare parts will be left to the owner.

Parties having an interest in the matter may file written com- ments with the Secretary, MSB,

Room 3099-B, Maritime Admin- istration, Department of Com- merce, Washington, D.C. 20230.
