The Federal Maritime Commission was briefed at its September meeting on substantial progress in implementing many of the requirements established by the Ocean Shipping Reform Act (OSRA).  Since the law’s enactment on June 16, 2022, the Commission has issued the NPRM on unreasonable refusal to deal in regard to vessel space and will soon publish the NPRM on demurrage and detention billing practices.  Additionally, two requests for public comment were issued, seeking feedback on the benefits of issuing an emergency order on information sharing, and secondly, the Commission’s proposed plan for establishing a data collection initiative related to an ocean carrier’s import and export performance in the US trades. The Commission has established a dedicated landing page on its website where interested members of the public can track the status of OSRA implementation.
