DHS/USCG RIN: 1625-AB80 Publication ID: 2012 
Title: Revision to Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) Requirements for Mariners 
Abstract: The Coast Guard is revising its merchant mariner credentialing regulations to implement the requirements of section 809 of Coast Guard Authorization Act of 2010, Public Law 111-281. Section 809 eliminates the requirement for certain mariner populations to hold a Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC). The Coast Guard is also adjusting its regulations to provide an exemption for certain fees associated with merchant mariner credentialing for those mariners not required to hold a TWIC, but who may still be required to visit a TWIC enrollment center to provide the information necessary to obtain a Merchant Mariner Credential. This rulemaking implements section 809 through revised regulations addressing the applicability of the TWIC requirements and the process of obtaining an MMC for affected mariners, and will supercede Coast Guard Policy Letter 11-15 issued December 2011, which provided a policy solution to offer affected mariners some of the relief presented by section 809 while the Coast Guard worked on this rulemaking.
