On June 24,1994 the USCG published a notice to inform the public that the alternative voluntary advisory group for Cook Inlet, Alaska has been recertified (59 FR 32745).
This certification was effective June 1,1994 and terminates May 31,1995.
Certification allows the advisory group to monitor activities of oil tankers and facilities. The voluntary advisory group represents the communities and interests near the oil terminal facilities in the Cook Inlet.
On April 19, 1994, the USCG announced the availability of its application for recertification that it received from the Cook Inlet Regional Citizen's Advisory Council (CIRCAC) and requested comments (59 FR 18592). No dissenting comments were received. The application from CIRCAC was evaluated in accordance with the policy statement published on July 7, 1993 (59 FR 36505).
By letter dated June 1, 1994, the Chief, Office of Marine Safety, Security and Environmental Protection certified that CIRCAC qualifies as an alternative voluntary advisory group.
