At last check there were only 33 comments to the public docket on the Coast Guard proposal, but that is expected to jump as industry groups start to weigh in. Additionally, the Coast Guard advisory group, the National Offshore Safety Advisory Committee, has formed four different working groups, representing different segments of the offshore vessel industry. They will be working to develop comments on behalf of their different groups. Contact us if you want more information on those working groups.
