Electronic Payment of Fees for Outer Continental Shelf Activities
Regulatory Identifier Number (RIN) 1010-AD43
Summary: The MMS proposes that all lessees, operators, permittees, and rights-of-way holders pay all fees for processing plans, applications, and permits electronically. The MMS believes this proposed rule would aid industry in payment processing, and reduce payment processing errors. This proposed rule would improve MMS processing efficiency and facilitate the correction of industry payment errors. The MMS would not accept checks, money orders, or cashier’s checks for payment of fees after the effective date of the final rule.
