(2) OTHER AGENCIES.―The Task Force shall establish a process for providing relevant maps and charts collected under paragraph (1), and other relevant material, available, on a secure and confidential basis, to appropriate Federal, State, and local government agencies, and seaport authorities, for the purpose of obtaining the comments of those agencies and before making a seaport vulnerability threat assessment for each such seaport.
(3) SECURE STORAGE AND LIMITED ACCESS.―
The Task Force shall establish, in cooperation with appropriate government agencies, procedures that ensure that maps, charts, and other material made available to Federal, State, and local government agencies, seaport authorities, and local seaport security committees are maintained in a secure and confidential manner and that access thereto is limited appropriately.
(c) PUBLIC INFORMATION.―Notwithstanding section 7(c) of the Ports and Waterways Safety Act (33 U.S.C. 1226(c)), the Task Force shall, from time to time and utilizing such media (including the Internet) as may be appropriate, make information available to the public about the assessments made under this section in a form that does not compromise, or present a threat to the disclosure of security-sensitive information about, those assessments.
SEC. 5. SECURITY GUIDELINES.
(a) IN GENERAL.―The Task Force shall develop voluntary minimum security guidelines that―
(1) are linked to the United States Coast Guard Captain-of-the-Port controls for maritime trade;
(2) include a model seaport concept; and
(3) include a set of recommended "best practices" guidelines for the use of maritime terminal operators.
(b) REVISION.―The Task Force shall review the guidelines developed under subsection (a) not less frequently than every 5 years and revise them as necessary.
(c) COMPLIANCE ENHANCEMENT.―If the Task Force finds, after the voluntary guidelines established under subsection (a) have been in effect for a reasonable period of time, that an appropriate increase in security has not occurred under the voluntary guidelines, or that there are inconsistencies in the application of the guidelines that need to be addressed in order to improve seaport security generally, then the United States Coast Guard and the United States Customs Service shall, at its request, initiate rulemaking procedures or take other appropriate action to require compliance with the guidelines.
