The US Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) on Monday announced the appointment of Karen V. Gregory as the organization’s Regulatory Reform Officer.

Gregory is currently Managing Director of the FMC, the body that regulates the nation’s international ocean transportation industry for the benefit of exporters, importers and customers in the US.

In her new role, she will set up a Regulatory Reform Task Force with the remit of identifying unnecessary or outdated directives which put undue burdens on the industry. The Task Force will also be required to suggest how to fix those problems.

The FMC’s Acting Chairman Michael Khouri said in a release from the agency that streamlining red tape would improve efficiencies and increase economic benefits to the industry.

Last week, in a similar deregulatory spirit, the FMC announced changes to its rules regarding Service Contracts and NVOCC Service Arrangements, to ease the regulatory burden on companies and to bring the FMC’s rules into line with modern industry practice.
