The proposed changes would enhance the security of our nation's ports, vessels, facilities, and Outer Continental Shelf facilities and incorporate requirements from legislation implemented since the original publication of these regulations in 2003. “One item missing from my current list that was included in my December blog is the Protection of Sensitive Security Information (SSI), RIN 1652-AA08.

The dates that were provided are listed below. Of those in the list all but two are significantly past the date that Congress mandated in the authorizing legislation to have the regulations in place. Neither the MTSA II rule nor the LNG rule have been mandated by Congress.
