DOT/MARAD RIN: 2133-AB88 Publication ID: Fall 2016 
Title: National Shipping Authority Regulations, Subchapter Update (RRR) 

MARAD is reviewing its National Shipping Authority (NSA) regulations to determine whether they are up to date. NSA regulations contemplate that the United States Government, through the Maritime Administrator as Director of the National Shipping Authority, may enter into agreements with Agents to manage and operate vessels owned, controlled or chartered by the USA for national security and or national defense related operations. MARAD´s Office of Sealift Operations has recommended deletion of parts 328 (re. Slop Chests) and 338 (re. Lump Sum Contracts) as obsolete. Other recommended changes and updates include the deletion of the SE Asia program referring to the Vietnam era sealift (ended 40 years ago) and proposed increases in dollar amounts relating to emergency repair authority, General Agent voyage repair authority, and special equipment repair authority.
