Review - CG Publishes Marine Cybersecurity NPRM

Today, the Coast Guard published a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register (89 FR 13404-13514) on “Cybersecurity in the Marine Transportation System”. The proposed regulations would update the maritime security regulations by adding regulations specifically focused on establishing minimum cybersecurity requirements for U.S.-flagged vessels, Outer Continental Shelf facilities, and U.S. facilities subject to the Maritime Transportation Security Act of 2002 regulations. The proposed changes would add a new Subpart F, Cybersecurity, to 33 CFR 101, Maritime Security.

Public Comments

The Coast Guard is soliciting public comments on the NPRM. Comments may be submitted via the Federal eRulemaking Portal (; Docket # USCG-2022-0802). Comments should be submitted by April 22nd, 2024.
