Press Release
Wednesday, April 03, 2013

The U.S. Coast Guard public meetings concern the Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) proposal.

The meetings are scheduled in accordance with the Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) Reader Requirements Notice of Proposed Rulemaking.

Background:

 The Coast Guard proposes to require owners and operators of certain vessels and facilities regulated by the Coast Guard to use electronic readers designed to work with the Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) as an access control measure. This NPRM also proposes additional requirements associated with electronic TWIC readers, including recordkeeping requirements for those owners and operators required to use an electronic TWIC reader, and security plan amendments to incorporate TWIC requirements. The TWIC program, including the proposed TWIC reader requirements in this rule, is an important component of the Coast Guard's multi-layered system of access control requirements and other measures designed to enhance maritime security.

Public Meetings:
The Coast Guard encourages members of the public to attend these meetings and provide oral comments on this NPRM. Coast Guard personnel also will accept written comments and related materials at these meetings.

The confirmed meeting schedule is as follows:
April 18, 2013: 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., Crystal City Marriott Hotel at Reagan National Airport, 1999 Jefferson Davis Hwy., Arlington, Va., 22202
