USCG aims to standardize cruise terminal security regulations

USCG aims to standardize cruise terminal security regulations

The US Coast Guard proposes to amend its regulations on cruise ship terminal safety by standardizing requirements and eliminating redundancies in current regulations.

USCG said the proposed rule would standardize screening activities for all persons, baggage and personal effects at cruise ship terminals while also allowing an appropriate degree of flexibility that accommodates and is consistent with different terminal sizes and operations.

Comments on the proposed rule-making should be submitted by March 10. Requests for a meeting must be made by Jan. 9.
