The U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) will hold a public meeting on February 9, 2015, in Fort Lauderdale, Florida to receive comments on a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) published in the Federal Register on December 10, 2014, under the title “Consolidated Cruise Ship Security Regulations.”
 
The proposed rule would amend USCG regulations on cruise ship terminal security by implementing amendments that provide detailed, flexible requirements for the screening of all baggage, personal items and persons—including passengers, crew and visitors—intended for carriage on a cruise ship.
 
The proposed regulations would standardize the security requirements of cruise ship terminals and would eliminate redundancies in current regulations that govern the security of cruise ship terminals.
