FMC Headquarters Will be Closed Today, Thursday, June 2, 2011

June 2, 2011

The Federal Maritime Commission will be closed today, Thursday, June 2, 2011 due to an ongoing power outage at 800 North Capitol Street, NW.  While the Commission's website is available, all systems and databases linked to its website are currently down and unavailable. The Commission's email system also is unavailable. We will inform you when the situation has been corrected.

FMC employees are on administrative leave today. Employees should monitor for further updates on the situation.

Because we have suffered a temporary power outage, filings with a due date of May 31, and June 1 - 2, 2011 will be considered timely on the next business day that the FMC is open.
