The National Maritime Security Advisory Committee (NMSAC) reconvened without a quorum on the morning of September 12th to hear about and discuss the two remaining agenda items, Using the Marine Highway for Hazardous Cargo and Port Security Grants. The Committee also heard a statement concerning CDC tracking and discussed its future meetings.The all-day session on September 11th had dealt with Cybersecurity, Maritime Domain Awareness (MDA) and Information Sharing, Requirements for foreign Detain On-Board seamen, US/Canadian Regulatory Harmonization, Integration of Facility Security Plans and Systems, and Radiation Portal Monitoring Replacement and Relocation. Problems with both internet and telephone audio feeds persisted, so the following is, at best, an approximation of the meeting.
The September 2012 meeting of National Maritime Security Advisory Committee (NMSAC) was typical in that the original agenda was immediately altered as the order of topics changed and some switched meeting days. It was also distressingly atypical in that the audio for the audience attending by webcast and teleconference was among the worst in living memory. As a consequence, there are both major and minor gaps (not necessarily noted) in this report notwithstanding the length of the post. I have also occasionally placed comments out of chronological sequence in order to keep all the discussion of a particular topic in one place.
