      Length
      3 pages

      The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing the fee rates for using a tropical disease priority review voucher for fiscal year (FY) 2011. The Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the FD&C Act), as amended by title XI of the Food and Drug Administration Amendments Act of 2007 (FDAAA), authorizes FDA to determine and collect priority review user fees for certain applications for approval of drug or biological products when those applications use a priority review voucher awarded by the Secretary of Health and Human Services. These vouchers are awarded to the sponsor of certain tropical disease product applications, submitted after September 27, 2007, upon FDA approval of such applications. The amount of the fee to be submitted to FDA with applications using a priority review voucher is determined each fiscal year (FY) based on the average cost incurred by FDA in the review of a human drug application subject to priority review in the previous FY. This notice establishes the priority review fee rate for FY 2011.

    • National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program: Revisions to the Vaccine Injury Table
      Type
      Proposed Rule
      Length
      5 pages

      Through this proposed rule, the Secretary proposes to change the Vaccine Injury Table (Table) to create distinct and separate listings for hepatitis A, trivalent influenza, meningococcal, and human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccines. The Table includes a list of covered vaccines under the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP). The VICP provides a system of no-fault compensation for certain individuals who have been injured by covered childhood vaccines. This proposed rule is technical in nature. The four categories of vaccines described in this notice are already covered vaccines under the VICP (starting in 2004) and are currently listed in a placeholder category (box XIII) in the Table. This document proposes to list these vaccines as separate categories on the Table, with no associated injuries noted at this time, in order to make the Table more clear to the public.

Based on feedback from these stakeholders, OER/ OD/NIH will formulate improvement plans and take action when necessary. Frequency of Response: 1 Response. Affected Public: Individuals. Type of Respondents: Science professionals (applicants, reviewers, Institutional Officials), adult science trainees, and the general public. The annual reporting burden is as follows: Quantitative surveys: Estimated Number of Respondents per Survey: 9,820; Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: 1; Average Burden Hours per Response: 0.25; Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours Requested per Quantitative Survey: 2,455; Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours Requested for 10 Quantitative Surveys: 24,550.

      We are adopting a new airworthiness directive (AD) for Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation (Sikorsky) Model S-76A, S-76B, and S-76C helicopters. This AD requires an initial and recurring inspections of the tail rotor vertical stabilizer aft spar assembly (aft spar assembly) for a crack, loose or working fasteners, and corrosion, and, if any are found, further inspections of the vertical stabilizer forward spar assembly (forward spar assembly). Repairing or replacing any unairworthy part before further flight is also required. This AD also requires a recurring track-and-balance of the tail rotor. Finally, this AD requires installing a vertical stabilizer modification kit, which is terminating action for the requirements of the AD. This AD is prompted by 26 reports of fatigue cracks in the aft spar assembly web and outer caps. The actions specified by this AD are intended to detect and correct an unbalanced or out-of-track tail rotor, which could lead to increased vibrations, a fatigue crack, loss of a portion of the vertical stabilizer and subsequent loss of control of the helicopter.

      EPA is proposing to approve a State Implementation Plan (SIP) revision submitted by the State of Idaho for the purpose of addressing the ``good neighbor'' provisions of the Clean Air Act (CAA) section 110(a)(2)(D)(i) for the 1997 8-hour ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS or standards) and the 1997 PM2.5 NAAQS. This SIP revision addresses the requirement that the State of Idaho's SIP have adequate provisions to prohibit air emissions from adversely affecting another state's air quality through interstate transport. In this action, EPA is proposing to approve the Idaho Interstate Transport SIP provisions that address the requirement of section 110(a)(2)(D)(i) that emissions from Idaho sources do not significantly contribute to nonattainment of the 1997 8-hour ozone NAAQS and the 1997 PM2.5 NAAQS in any other state, interfere with maintenance of the 1997 8-hour ozone NAAQS and the 1997 PM2.5 NAAQS in any other state, and interfere with measures required in the SIP of any other state under part C of subchapter I of the CAA to prevent significant deterioration of air quality. This action is being taken under section 110 and part C of subchapter I of the Clean Air Act (the Act or CAA).

      The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 8 announces the deletion of portions of the On-Post Operable Unit (OU3), specifically the Central and Eastern Surface Areas including surface media and structures (CES), and the surface media of the Off-Post Operable Unit (OU4) (OPS) of the Rocky Mountain Arsenal Federal Facility (RMA) located in Commerce City, Colorado from the National Priorities List (NPL). The NPL, promulgated pursuant to section 105 of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) of 1980, as amended, is an appendix of the National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan (NCP). This partial deletion pertains to the surface media (soil, surface water, sediment) and structures (both former structures that have been demolished and structures retained for future use) within the CES and the surface media of the entire OPS. The rest of the On-Post OU, including groundwater below RMA that is west of E Street, and the groundwater that comprises the Off-Post OU will remain on the NPL and is not being considered for deletion as part of this action. Response activities will continue at those OUs. The EPA and the State of Colorado, through the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE), have determined that all appropriate response actions under CERCLA, other than operation, maintenance, and five-year reviews, have been completed. However, the deletion of these parcels does not preclude future actions under Superfund.

    • Restructuring of the Stationary Source Audit Program

      22 pages

      EPA is taking final action to promulgate amendments to the General Provisions to allow accredited providers to supply stationary source audit samples and to require sources to obtain and use these samples from the accredited providers instead of from EPA, as is the current practice. All requirements pertaining to the audit samples have been moved to the General Provisions and have been removed from the test methods because the current language in the test methods regarding audit samples is inconsistent from method to method. Therefore, deleting all references to audit samples in the test methods eliminates any possible confusion and inconsistencies. Under this final rule, the requirement to use an audit sample during a compliance test will apply to all test methods for which a commercially available audit exists.
