DHS/USCG RIN: 1625-AA87 Publication ID: Spring 2004 
Title: ●Security Zone Regulations 
Abstract: The Coast Guard uses these routine and frequent regulations to establish control of access to areas to ensure the security of vessels, waterfront facilities, or individuals. Many of these zones are of short duration, a few hours to a few days, and all are geographically limited in area. Security zones are established for Presidential or Vice Presidential visits, high profile events such as the Olympics, controversial events such as transport of spent nuclear fuel, and in response to the threat of terrorist attacks. Some security zones are implemented only at heightened security levels and only for the duration of the heightened alert. Security zones are promulgated by Captains of the Port or District Commanders. These routine and frequent rulemakings support the Coast Guard's strategic goals of marine security, mobility, protection of natural resources, and national defense. The total actions expected from May 1, 2004, to April 30, 2005, are 200.
