OMB Approves TWIC Reader Delay Rule

Yesterday the OMB’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) announced that it had approved the Coast Guard’s final rule on TWIC Reader Requirements; Delay of Effective Date. This rule regards the use of Transportation Workers Identification Credential (TWIC) readers at a limited number of facilities that handle certain dangerous cargoes (CDCs) in bulk or receive vessels carrying CDC in bulk. The notice of proposed rulemaking for this rule was published in June of 2018.

This is remarkably quick action by OIRA as the final rule was just sent to them last week. This may mean that we will see this sooner rather than later in the Federal Register.
