Update and Open Dialogue on FMC OSRA Rulemaking Process Jeff Vogel•The Honorable Carl W. Bentzel
The Ocean Shipping Reform Act of 2022 (OSRA 2022) brought about the first sweeping change to Federal Maritime Commission's (FMC) regulatory authority in nearly four decades. We will provide NAWE members with an update to the FMC's efforts to implement its OSRA 2022 authorities through the rulemaking process, as well as provide insights on NAWE's strategy to mitigate the risks to marine terminal operators arising from the Commission's efforts.
We will also discuss the associated challenges that have arisen from OSRA 2022, including numerous federally-mandated data collection efforts aimed at ocean carriers and marine terminal operators, and a notable increase in demurrage and detention enforcement actions and reparations claims.
