MarAd Modifies Rules

MarAd is publishing a final rule in the Federal Register amending regulations prescribing procedures for obtaining seamen's service awards to conform to the provisions of the PL. 100-324, Merchant Marine Decorations and Medals Act of 1988.

This rule modifies 46 CFR Part 350 by specifying the medals, awards and decorations that the Secretary of Transportation may issue, and by establishing the procedure for determining eligibility to receive these indicia of recognition for service in the U.S. merchant marine. The rule, assigned Docket No.R-162, is effective upon publication.
