CG Sends Autonomous Vessel RFI to OMB

Yesterday the OMB’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) announced that it had received from the Coast Guard a request for information (RFI) for review. This pre-rulemaking document concerns “Identifying Barriers to Autonomous Vessels”.

According to the 2019 Fall Unified Agenda entry for this rulemaking:

“This notice solicits the public’s views on United States Coast Guard (USCG) regulations that may need to be updated, modified, or eliminated to facilitate the safe introduction of automated commercial vessels into our nation’s waterways. USCG requests comment on specific regulatory and operational requirements that are likely to be affected by increased integration of automated vessels into the maritime transportation system.”
