FMC Issues Notice For 3 Proposed Rule Changes

In an effort to effect regulatory change, the Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) has issued three notices of proposed rulemaking to amend certain FMC regulations.

Docket No. 92-26 proposes an amendment to regulations that exempt certain marine terminal barge operators form Shipping Act tariff filing requirements.

Docket 92-27 would reduce annual certification filing requirements of ocean freight forwarders to every two years. The proposal would be a cost saver to forwarders and the commission.

In Docket 92-28, the FMC proposes an amendment to regulations that would "eliminate certain outdated or unnecessary regulatory provisions." For further information on Docket 92-26 and Docket 92-28, contact: Bryant L. VanBrakle, director of FMC's Bureau of Tariffs, Certification and Licensing. (202) 523-5796.
