The National Ocean Council certified the Northeast Ocean Plan in December 2016.

The Northeast Regional Planning Body (RPB) is responsible for developing New England’s ocean plan in accordance with the National Ocean Policy Act of 2010.
After receiving input from the public, the Northeast Regional Planning Body approved goals and objectives for the region’s ocean plan. The Framework for Ocean Planning in the Northeastern United States (33pp, 791K) specifies these goals and objectives along with actions, outcomes, tasks, and timelines.
