Title: ●Implementation of National Maritime Security Initiatives (USCG-2003-14792) 
Abstract: The Coast Guard is implementing a series of temporary interim rules as required by Public Law 107-295, the Maritime Transportation Security Act of 2002 (MTSA). This series of temporary interim rules addresses security assessments, plans, and specific security measure requirements for Area Maritime Transportation Security, Vessel Security, Facility Security, and Offshore Facility Security. The carriage requirements for Automatic Identification System (AIS) are also included in this series of interim final rules. A comprehensive discussion of the security requirements included in the MTSA is presented in this rulemaking along with a summary of the cost and benefits of the entire suite of temporary interim rules. Discussions are also included on the alignment of domestic maritime security requirements with the International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPFS) Code and recent amendments to the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS). The actual temporary interim rules in this suite limit their preamble discussions to the specific requirements they contain. Under the MTSA, a final rule for each of the six temporary interim rules will be issued before November 25, 2003. This rulemaking provides the elements and discussions common to the suite of related temporary interim rules. The public is encouraged to use this rulemaking as the foundation document for the entire suite.
