Coast Guard to Hold Maritime Security Meetings

Monday, December 30, 2002
The U.S. Coast Guard is holding seven public meetings to discuss requirements for security assessments, plans, and specific security measures for ports, vessels, and facilities. Discussions will aid the Coast Guard in determining the types of vessels and facilities that pose a risk of being involved in a transportation security incident, and in identifying security measures and standards to deter such incidents. Discussions will also focus on aligning domestic maritime security requirements with the International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) Code and recent amendments to the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS), to comply with section 102 (Port Security) of the recently enacted Maritime Transportation Security Act of 2002 (MTSA). Interested individuals and organizations are encouraged to attend the meetings and submit comments. The public meetings will be held on the following dates and at the following locations: January 27, New Orleans; January 30, Cleveland; January 31, St. Louis; February 3, Seattle: February 5, Los Angeles-Long Beach; February 7, Jacksonville: February 11, New York. Comments and related material must be received by February 28, 2003. Source: HK Law
