DHS/USCG RIN: 1625-AA03 Publication ID: Fall 2011 
Title: Claims Procedures Under the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 (USCG-2004-17697) 
Abstract: This rulemaking implements section 1013 (Claims Procedures) and section 1014 (Designation of Source and Advertisement) of the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 (OPA). An interim rule was published in 1992, and provides the basic requirements for the filing of claims for uncompensated removal costs or damages resulting from the discharge of oil, for the designation of the sources of the discharge, and for the advertisement of where claims are to be filed. The interim rule also includes the processing of natural resource damage (NRD) claims. The NRD claims, however, were not processed until September 25, 1997, when the Department of Justice issued an opinion that the Oil Spill Liability Trust Fund (OSLTF) is available, without further appropriation, to pay trustee NRD claims under the general claims provisions of OPA 90, 33 U.S.C. 2712(a)(4). This rulemaking supports the Coast Guard's broad role and responsibility of maritime stewardship.
