Seats Available on Coast Guard Committee

The Coast Guard seeks applications for membership on the Commercial Fishing Industry Vessel Safety Advisory Committee (CFIVSAC). The CFIVSAC provides advice and makes recommendations to the Coast Guard on matters relating to the safe operation of commercial fishing industry vessels.

The CFIVSAC is a Federal advisory committee under 5 U.S.C. App. (Pub. L. 92-463). The Coast Guard chartered the

CFIVSAC to provide advice on issues related to the safety of commercial fishing industry vessels regulated under Chapter 45 of Title 46, United States Code, which includes uninspected fishing vessels, fish processing vessels, and fish tender vessels. (See 46 U.S.C. 4508.)

The CFIVSAC meets at least once a year. It may also meet for other extraordinary purposes. Its subcommittees may gather throughout the year to prepare for meetings or develop proposals for the committee as a whole to address specific problems.

The Coast Guard will consider applications for five positions that expire or become vacant in October 2010 in the following categories: (a) Commercial Fishing Industry (two positions); (b) Education or Training Professionals related to fishing vessels or personnel qualifications (one position); (c) Underwriters that insure fishing vessels (one position); and (d) General Public (one position).
