MTSA II Notice of Proposed Rulemaking Timetable

This week, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) released its semi-annual regulatory agenda which outlines all current and projected rulemakings, existing regulations, and completed actions of DHS and its components.

The regulatory agenda indicates that the Coast Guard expects to update its Maritime Transportation Security Act (MTSA) regulations by incorporating requirements from legislation implemented since the original publication of MTSA. The Coast Guard anticipates issuing a “MTSA II” Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) by September 2012.
