FMC Procedures Concerning COVID-19

To assist in slowing the transmission of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) cases, and to limit the exposure risk to its employees, the Federal Maritime Commission is taking steps that temporarily change its operations.

The Commission remains open and operational, but it will hold meetings and other public-facing activities via phone, e-mail, and other platforms that allow for reduced in-person contact.

Regulated entities remain obligated to comply with all filing requirements and deadlines.
