Background and Purpose
The Coast Guard published guidelines
on December 31, 1992 (57 FR 62600), to
assist groups seeking recertification
under the Oil Terminal and Oil Tanker
Environmental Oversight and
Monitoring Act of 1990 (33 U.S.C. 2732)
(the Act). The Coast Guard issued a
policy statement on July 7, 1993 (58 FR
36504), to clarify the factors that the
Coast Guard would be considering in
making its determination as to whether
advisory groups should be certified in
accordance with the Act, and the
procedures which the Coast Guard
would follow in meeting its certification
responsibilities under the Act. Most
recently, on September 16, 2002 (67 FR
58440), the Coast Guard changed its
policy on recertification procedures for
regional citizen’s advisory council by
requiring applicants to provide
comprehensive information every three
years. For each of the two years between
the triennial application procedures,
applicants submit a letter requesting
recertification that includes a
description of any substantive changes
to the information provided at the
previous triennial recertification.
Further, public comment is only
solicited during the triennial
comprehensive review.
Discussion of Comments
On June 20, 2023, the Coast Guard
published a Notice; Request for
comments titled ‘‘Application for
Recertification of Cook Inlet Regional
Citizens’ Advisory Council’’ in the
Federal Register (88 FR 39857). We
received 33 comments, all in support of
CIRCAC’s recertification. No public
meeting was requested. The comments
consistently cited CIRCAC’s
collaborative partnerships in furthering
the respective communities’ interest to
promote safety, efforts to keep the
public informed, oil spill industry
monitoring efforts, effective prevention
and response efforts regarding oil
pollution, and to protect the sensitive
marine environment along Alaska’s
By letter dated August 23, 2023, the
Commander, Seventeenth Coast Guard
District, certified that the CIRCAC
qualifies as an alternative voluntary
advisory group under 33 U.S.C. 2732(o).
This recertification terminates on
August 31, 2024.
Dated: August 23, 2023.

: Executive
Order 12862 directs Federal agencies to
provide service to the public that
matches or exceeds the best service
available in the private sector. In order
to work continuously to ensure that our
programs are effective and meet our
customers’ needs, the Department of
Homeland Security (hereafter ‘‘the

of a generic clearance to collect
qualitative feedback on our service
delivery. By qualitative feedback we

improving service delivery. The

efficient, and satisfying experience with

will provide insights into customer or
stakeholder perceptions, experiences
and expectations, provide an early
warning of issues with service, or focus
