CG LNG-LHG Rule Goes into Effect

Back in June the new Coast Guard rule on risk assessments for LNG-LHG shore side facilities officially went into effect. Unfortunately, because almost all of the rule requirements deal with information that facilities must submit to the Coast Guard, the Coast Guard could not start collecting that information until the information collection request (ICR; 1625-0049) modification was approved by the Office of Management and Budget.

As I noted in an earlier blog, the Coast Guard did not submit their ICR until June 9th. It was approved last Friday. The collection of vulnerability assessment information could probably start to take place today, but I expect that the Coast Guard will hold off until they post an official notice in the Federal Register in the next couple of days.
