Over the coming months, the Coast Guard will evaluate the more than 250 comments received and identify sections of NVIC 05-17 that would benefit from a more detailed explanation to improve clarity. Once the comments have been evaluated and NVIC 05-17 appropriately revised, the final document will be posted to the Federal Register.


9/8/2017: Cyber risk NVIC comment period extended 30 days to October 11

The Coast Guard received requests to extend the comment period by 30 days due to the conditions caused by hurricanes Harvey and Irma, which have prevented some members of the public from submitting comments by the original deadline.
