Intermodal capacity includes dry cargo vessels, equipment, terminals and intermodal management services. Ship operators willing to voluntarily enter into visas simply register their vessel in the program and make it available at DoD`s request. In order to maximize resources and minimize disruptions to U.S. commercial operations, visa can activate its fleet of vessels in three stages, each level being a higher percentage of intermodal capacity commitment (as defined by DoD). In accordance with the 50 United States.C 4558 (f) (2), the VISA may be extended by an additional 5 years, when: (a) the Maritime Administrator (Administrator) certifies, through publication in the Federal Register, that visas are necessary for national defence or pension programs, and (b) the Attorney General (after consultation with the President of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) ] finds that such an objective cannot reasonably be achieved by a voluntary agreement or by an action plan with less anti-competitive effects or without voluntary agreement. The Maritime Administration (MARAD) announces the extension of the voluntary agreement on sealift intermodal transport (VISA) until 1st Visa the aim is to make intermodal navigation services/systems available to the Ministry of Defence, including ships, marine space, intermodal facilities and equipment and related management services, where necessary to support the U.S. armed forces in emergency response and support. To achieve this, cooperation between the marine industry, the Start 51711 Printing pageDepartment of Transportation and the Department of Defense. MARAD`s Voluntary Maritime Intermodal Agreement (VISA) program is a partnership between the U.S.
government and the marine industry to enable the Department of Defense (DoD) to safely access a commercial maritime gateway and state-of-the-art intermodal equipment when DoD deploys military forces during a national emergency or war intervention. The VISA program is amended under the Defense Production Act of 1950 (50 Us.C. No. 4558) and the Maritime Security Act of 2003 and approved on January 30, 1997 as the Ministry of Defence`s (DoD) commercial hake preparation program. Official documents can be contained in the federal registry. Through this communication, the Administrator notes that there are conditions that may pose a direct threat to the national defence of the United States or its custody programs and certifies that VISA, a standby agreement for the use of intermodal maritime transportation services/systems, is necessary for national defence or custody programs. The Attorney General, after consulting with the President of the FTC, found that national defence or precautionary programs could not reasonably be achieved through a voluntary agreement or action plan with less anti-competitive effects or without voluntary agreement. The publication of these results in this notice is consistent with the publication requirements of 50 states.C 4558 (f). As a result, the VISA as published in the Federal Register on October 29, 2014 (79 FR 64462) is extended until October 1, 2024.
As a result, current visa participants are not required to reapply for VISUM under this extension. The VISA program operates on a simple model: a large number of qualified U.S.-flagged commercial vessels agree to voluntarily use their time and intermodal capability during the war in exchange for priority access to DoD cargoes during the peace period.
