The U.S. Coast Guard announced the establishment of an industry-led Maritime Security Sector Coordinating Council (SCC) last week, with the Dredging Contractors of America (DCA) as a charter member.

Sector Coordinating Councils (SCCs) are self-organized and self-governed councils that enable critical infrastructure owners and operators, their trade associations, and other industry representatives to interact on a wide range of sector specific strategies, polices, and activities.

SCCs coordinate and collaborate with Sector Specific Agencies and related Government Coordinating Councils (GCCs) to address critical infrastructure security and resilience polices and efforts for a specific sector.

The Maritime SCC is expected to collaborate with the Maritime sub-sector of the Transportation System Sector’s GCC, said DCA in its release.

Commenting the latest news, William P. Doyle, DCA Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director, said: “I am pleased to be representing the Dredging Contractors of America on this important maritime industry-led Sector Coordinating Council.  It is integral that the private sector U.S. maritime industry interact and cooperate with U.S. Government Coordinating Councils.”

The Maritime SCC will serve as the principal liaison with the Maritime Modal Government Coordinating Council (Maritime GCC) and its member federal agencies on issues pertaining to joint planning, preparedness, resilience, and recovery related to events of national significance that may affect the domestic delivery of resources through maritime means.
