Title: Regulatory Review and Update of National Marine Sanctuary Program Regulations 
Abstract: This rulemaking makes several technical revisions to Office of National Marine Sanctuaries regulations, following a comprehensive review and analysis of those rules. A few minor technical inconsistencies in wording throughout the regulations were identified that have resulted in confusion and inconsistent application of the regulations amongst various national marine sanctuaries in the system. The technical revisions will make the regulations internally consistent and will update language to current standards consistent with modern regulation drafting guidelines.
