DHS/USCG RIN: 1625-AB30 Publication ID: Spring 2017 
Title: Consolidated Cruise Ship Security Regulations 

This rulemaking proposes requirements for the screening of baggage, personal items, and persons intended for carriage on a cruise ship. This rule would revise the existing regulatory regime under the Maritime Transportation Security Act of 2002 by requiring that cruise ship terminals have and submit a terminal screening program for passengers as part of their Facility Security Plans. The proposed changes would consolidate security requirements for cruise ships into one portion of the CFR so they are more easily found and provide greater uniformity in screening across the industry.
