Statement of Need:
To improve safety and reduce marine casualties on board U.S.-flagged passenger and small passenger vessels, the Coast Guard is evaluating the potential for a scoped Safety Management System (SMS) rulemaking. Vessels transporting more than 12 passengers on foreign voyages are already required to have an SMS. The Coast Guard will seek public input on the scope and content of a potential SMS requirement for other passenger and small passenger vessels, and will invite responses to specific questions on the feasibility and applicability of potential use on those vessels.
Anticipated Costs and Benefits:
The Coast Guard will use the ANPRM to solicit public input to help develop estimates of the costs and benefits of any proposed regulation.
