Federal Register Highlights – 5/30/14

May 30, 2014

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for May 30, 2014:

PROPOSED RULE: We are proposing to amend the veterinary biological product regulations by defining the terms used for reporting the results of tests performed on veterinary biological products. Licensees and permittees of veterinary biological products must conduct these tests and report the results to the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service so that the Agency can determine if the products are eligible for release. Defining these terms would clarify the circumstances under which the results of a prescribed test can be reported as satisfactory, unsatisfactory, inconclusive, or a No Test. We are also proposing to remove several obsolete testing standard requirements from part 113. These changes would update our regulations and improve communication between regulators and product licensees and permittees with respect to reporting test results. We will consider all comments that we receive on or before July 29, 2014. (To submit comments, visit, reference docket number APHIS–2013–0034.)

PROPOSED RULE: In this Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission proposes to amend its regulations to waive the Open Access Transmission Tariff requirements, the Open Access Same-Time Information System requirements its regulations, and the Standards of Conduct requirements its regulations for any public utility that is subject to such requirements solely because it owns, controls, or operates Interconnection Customer’s Interconnection Facilities, in whole or in part, and sells electric energy from its Generating Facility, as those terms are defined in the pro forma Large Generator Interconnection Procedures and the pro forma Large Generator Interconnection Agreement and adopted in Order No. 2003. The Commission proposes to find that requiring the filing of an Open Access Transmission Tariff is not necessary to prevent unjust or unreasonable rates or unduly discriminatory behavior with respect to Interconnection Customer’s Interconnection Facilities over which interconnection and transmission services can be ordered pursuant to the Federal Power Act. Comments are due July 29, 2014. (Documents created electronically using word processing software should be filed in native applications or print-to-PDF format, and not in a scanned format, at
