    • Comprehensive Methamphetamine Control Act of 1996; Registration Fees
      Type
      Rule
      Length
      2 pages

      DEA is waiving a portion of the registration fee for non- retail distributors of pseudoephedrine, phenylpropanolamine, and combination ephedrine drug products. Under the Comprehensive Methamphetamine Control Act of 1996 (MCA), wholesale distributors of these drug products are subject to the existing List I chemical registration and fee requirements. However, because the drug products are distributed in substantially different channels than other List I chemicals, the existing pre-registration investigation procedures, which were established primarily with respect to the handlers of chemicals, as opposed to drug products, are not necessarily applicable to the new type of applicant. DEA will be reviewing the pre- registration investigation procedures to determine what changes will be necessary to account for the different manner of distribution of the drug products. Recognizing that changes are likely to be made in the pre-registration process, thus causing changes to the fees assessed, DEA is waiving a portion of the fee at this time, rather than requiring that new applicants pay a fee that would not be consistent with the resources actually expended in the issuance of the registration.

    • Temporary Exemption From Chemical Registration for Distributors of Pseudoephedrine and Phenylpropanolamine Products
      Type
      Rule
      Length
      2 pages

      DEA is amending its regulations to provide a temporary exemption from registration for persons who distribute pseudoephedrine and phenylpropanolamine drug products. The Comprehensive Methamphetamine Control Act of 1996 (MCA) amends the Controlled Substances Act of 1970 (CSA) to require that, effective October 3, 1997, persons who distribute these drug products shall be subject to the chemical registration requirement. To avoid interruption in the legitimate distribution of the drug products pending promulgation of final regulations and issuance of registrations, DEA is amending its regulations to provide certain temporary exemptions from the registration requirement.

    • Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Model A319, A320, and A321 Series Airplanes
      Type
      Rule
      Length
      2 pages

      This amendment adopts a new airworthiness directive (AD) that is applicable to certain Airbus Model A319, A320, and A321 series airplanes. This action requires revising the FAA-approved Airplane Flight Manual to increase monitoring of the flight path of the airplane to detect certain software anomalies of the flight management guidance system (FMGS), and take appropriate corrective actions. This amendment is prompted by the issuance of mandatory continuing airworthiness information by a foreign civil airworthiness authority. The actions specified in this AD are intended to ensure that the flightcrew detects and corrects an unintended flight path if certain software anomalies of the FMGS occur, which could result in an increased risk of collision with terrain or other airplanes.

      Type
      Proposed Rule
      Length
      1 page

      This action withdraws a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) that proposed a new airworthiness directive (AD), applicable to Eurocopter Deutschland GmbH (ECD) (Eurocopter Deutschland) Model BO 105 C and BO 105 S helicopters. That action would have required modifying the main relay box by replacing the voltage regulator; modifying the cockpit overhead panel by installing two additional switches; and performing a functional test of the new voltage regulator, generators, and new switches. Since the issuance of the NPRM, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has determined that the modification proposed is only necessary for Instrument Flight Rule (IFR) configurations, and since there is no IFR FAA type-design approval for the affected models, it is unnecessary to issue an AD.

This proposal would increase the radius of the existing controlled airspace. The intended effect of this proposal is to provide segregation of aircraft using instrument approach procedures in instrument conditions from other aircraft operating in visual weather conditions.

The Services find that the petition presents substantial information indicating that the petitioned action to list Atlantic sturgeon may be warranted. The Services are now initiating a status review to determine whether listing of the Atlantic sturgeon in its North American range, including Atlantic Canada, is warranted, and to prepare a 12-month finding. To assure that the review is comprehensive, the Services are soliciting information and data on this species.

    • Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants; Proposal to List the St. Andrew Beach Mouse as Endangered
      Type
      Proposed Rule
      Length
      8 pages

      The Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) proposes endangered status for the St. Andrew Beach Mouse (Peromyscus polionotus peninsularis) pursuant to the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (Act). This subspecies is restricted to coastal sand dunes and had a historic distribution that included the northeast Florida panhandle from Gulf County into portions of Bay County. Its current range is limited to a portion of the St. Joseph Peninsula in Gulf County. Habitat impacts causing loss of mice and the species' local capability to recover from such impacts are primarily responsible for the range curtailment. Threats to beach mouse habitat include severe storms, coastal land development and its associated activities, and non-storm related, natural shoreline erosion. Additional threats include predation by free-ranging domestic cats and displacement by house mice. This proposal, if made final, would implement the protection provisions provided by the Act for this beach mouse.

      The Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) proposes to list the cylindrical lioplax (Lioplax cyclostomaformis), flat pebblesnail (Lepyrium showalteri), and plicate rocksnail (Leptoxis plicata) as endangered; and the painted rocksnail (Leptoxis taeniata), round rocksnail (Leptoxis ampla), and lacy elimia (Elimia crenatella) as threatened species under the authority of the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (Act). These aquatic snails are found in localized portions of the Black Warrior, Cahaba, Alabama, and Coosa rivers or their tributaries in Alabama. Impoundment and water quality degradation have eliminated the six snails from 90 percent or more of their historic habitat. Surviving populations are currently threatened by pollutants such as sediments and nutrients that wash into streams from the land surface. This proposed rule, if made final, would extend the Act's protection to these six snail species.

      The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is proposing a health standard, to be promulgated under section 6(b) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, 29 U.S.C. 655, to control occupational exposure to tuberculosis (TB). TB is a communicable, potentially lethal disease that afflicts the most vulnerable members of our society: the poor, the sick, the aged, and the homeless. As many as 13 million U.S. adults are presently believed to be infected with TB; over time, more than 1 million of these individuals may develop active TB disease and transmit the infection to others. TB remains a major health problem with 22,813 active cases reported in the U.S. in 1995. A number of outbreaks of this disease have occurred among workers in health care settings, as well as other work settings, in recent years. To add to the seriousness of the problem, some of these outbreaks have involved the transmission of multidrug-resistant strains of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, which are often fatal.
