Coast Guard Sets Meeting on Cruise Ship Terminal Security Rule

The Feb. 9 public meeting in Hollywood, Fla., is the agency's opportunity to get public comments about the proposed rule.

The U.S. Coast Guard announced it will hold a public meeting Feb. 9 near Fort Lauderdale, Fla., to hear public comments about its proposed rule to standardize the security requirements of cruise ship terminals. The rule, published in December 2014, would provide flexible requirements for screening all baggage, personal items, and people -- passengers, crew members, and visitors -- intended for carriage on a cruise ship, its notice states.

The meeting at the Port Everglades Cruise Terminal 19 in Hollywood, Fla., will begin at 1 p.m. and end at or before 5 p.m. Directions are available at www.porteverglades.net.

The Coast Guard is accepting comments on the proposed rule until March 10. The rule does not address screening of vessel stores, bunkers, or cargo, nor items that may be brought aboard a cruise ship by the ship's operator, including items that passengers may check for secure storage with the operator, outside their baggage or carry-ons, the notice states.

To read the proposed rule, visit www.regulations.gov and search for Docket No. USCG-2006-23846.
