Nationwide Automatic Identification System (NAIS); Preparation of Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement
  • Notice of intent; notice of public meeting; request for
    USCG-2005-22837 (Nov 23, 2005; 70 FR 70862 )

    SUMMARY: The Coast Guard announces that it intends to prepare a Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (PEIS) as part of the environmental planning process for the Nationwide Automatic Identification System (NAIS) project. The NAIS project, a USCG and DHS Level 1 investment and major systems acquisition, was initiated as a component of implementing the Maritime Transportation Security Act of 2002. Implementation of the NAIS, in part, involves installing Automatic Identification System (AIS) equipment and related support systems on and around communications towers or other structures along 95,000 miles of coastline and inland rivers.
    The NAIS project is being conducted to provide the USCG with the capability to receive and distribute information from shipboard Automatic Identification System (AIS) equipment in order to enhance Maritime Domain Awareness (MDA). The project will provide detection and identification of vessels carrying AIS equipment approaching or operating in the maritime domain where little or no vessel tracking currently exists.
    AIS is an international standard, approved by the International Maritime Organization (IMO), for ship-to-ship, ship-to-shore and shore-to-ship communication of information, including vessel position, speed, course, destination, and other data of critical interest for maritime safety and security. The information provided by this system will support national maritime interests--from the safety of ports through collision avoidance, to the safety of the nation through detection and classification of vessels when they are still thousands of miles offshore.
    Publication of this notice begins a scoping process that identifies and determines the scope of environmental issues to be addressed in the PEIS. This notice requests public participation in the scoping process and provides information on how to participate.

    DATES: The USCG will hold a public meeting concerning the scope of the PEIS. The public meeting will be held on Thursday, December 22, 2005, at the USCG Headquarters building in Washington, DC. The public meeting will be held from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and will be preceded by an open house from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. The public meeting may end later than the stated time, depending on the number of persons wishing to speak.
    Comments and related material must reach the Docket Management Facility by December 23, 2005.

    ADDRESSES: The public meeting and open house will be held in room number 2415 of U.S. Coast Guard Headquarters (Transpoint Building), 2100 Second Street SW., Washington, DC 20593.

    You may submit comments identified by Coast Guard docket number USCG-2005-22837 to the Docket Management Facility at the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT). To avoid duplication, please use only one of the following methods:

    Questions

    (9) Our final rule published in the Federal Register (http://dmses.dot.gov/docimages/pdf88/257425_web.pdf) on October 22, 2003 (68 FR 60559), specifically exempted fishing vessels and certain passenger vessels from AIS carriage requirements. Other than costs, are there any specific reasons--particularly regarding safety or security--that warrant these vessels being excluded from AIS carriage? In particular, describe why these vessels should be treated differently from other commercial vessels over 65 feet in length?
    (10) Recognizing that the cost of AIS are not insignificant, and are deemed by various commenters as being unreasonable, at what cost point would AIS be reasonable or not impose an undue burden?

    November 5, 2003, 9 a.m. to 12 a.m. (noon), at 8th Coast Guard District, Hale Boggs Federal Building, Room B100, 501 Magazine Street, New Orleans, LA 70130.

This rulemaking will establish a statutorily required numbering system for undocumented barges more than 100 gross tons operating on the navigable waters of the United States.
