Federal Register Highlights – 7/21/14

July 21, 2014

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for July 21, 2014:

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard will enforce the safety zone on Lake Erie in Cedar Point, Ohio, for the Revolution 3 Triathlon in Cedar Point, Ohio. This zone will be enforced from 6 a.m. until 10 a.m. on each day of September 6 and 7, 2014. This action is necessary and intended to ensure safety of life on navigable waters during the Revolution 3 Triathlon. During the aforementioned periods, the Coast Guard will enforce restrictions upon, and control movement of, vessels in the safety zone. No person or vessel may enter the safety zone while it is being enforced without permission of the Captain of the Port Detroit. The regulations in 33 CFR 165.941 will be enforced for safety zone (a)(60) in § 165.941, from 6 a.m. until 10 a.m. on each day of September 6 and 7, 2014.

PROPOSED RULE: The FAA proposes to amend the collective risk limits for commercial launches and reentries. Under this proposal, the FAA would separate its expected-number-of-casualties (Ec) limits for launches and reentries. For commercial launches, the FAA proposes to aggregate the Ec posed by the following hazards: Impacting inert and explosive debris, toxic release, and far field blast overpressure. The FAA proposes to limit the aggregate Ec for these three hazards to 1 × 104. For commercial reentries, the FAA proposes to aggregate the Ec posed by debris and toxic release, and set that Ec under an aggregate limit of 1 × 104. Under the FAA’s proposal, the aggregate Ec limit for both launch and reentry would be expressed using only one significant digit. The FAA also proposes to clarify the regulatory requirements concerning hazard areas for ships and aircraft. The proposed rule would require a launch operator to establish a hazard area where the probability of impact does not exceed: 0.000001 (1 × 106) for an aircraft; and 0.00001 (1 × 105) for a water-borne-vessel.

PROPOSED RULE: In this notice of proposed rulemaking, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (‘‘FDIC’’) proposes to rescind and remove parts of our regulations, entitled ‘‘Management Official Interlocks’’ relating to State savings associations. This subpart was included in the regulations that were transferred to the FDIC from the Office of Thrift Supervision (‘‘OTS’’) on July 21, 2011, in connection with the implementation of applicable provisions of Title III of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (‘‘Dodd-Frank Act’’). The requirements for State savings associations in the transferred OTS regulations are substantively similar to those in the FDIC’s regulations, which is also entitled ‘‘Management Official Interlocks’’ and is applicable for all insured depository institutions (‘‘IDIs’’) for which the FDIC has been designated the appropriate Federal banking agency. Upon removal of the transferred OTS regulations applicable for all IDIs for which the FDIC has been designated the appropriate Federal banking agency will be found in our regulations. Comments must be received on or before September 19, 2014. (To submit comments, visit http://www.fdic.gov/regulations/laws/federal/.

PROPOSED RULE: In this notice of proposed rulemaking, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (‘‘FDIC’’) proposes to rescind and remove regarding electronic operations which were transferred to the FDIC from the Office of Thrift Supervision (‘‘OTS’’) on July 21, 2011, in connection with the implementation of applicable provisions of Title III of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (‘‘Dodd-Frank Act’’). There is no corresponding FDIC Electronic Operations rule and the rule is deemed obsolete and unnecessary. Therefore, the FDIC proposes to rescind and remove the regulations. Comments must be received on or before September 19, 2014. (To submit comments, visit http://www.fdic.gov/regulations/laws/federal/. Follow instructions for submitting comments on the agency Web site.)

PROPOSED RULE: The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) proposes to rescind and remove regulations regarding possession by conservators and receivers for federal and state savings associations, which are no longer necessary in light of or contradict provisions of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act and are not in accordance with FDIC practice and procedures. The regulations were included in the regulations that were transferred to the FDIC from the Office of Thrift Supervision (OTS) on July 21, 2011, in connection with the implementation of applicable provisions of Title III of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. Rescinding these regulations will eliminate confusion that may arise from duplicative or inconsistent rules and procedures and will eliminate unnecessary regulations. Comments must be received on or before September 19, 2014. (To submit comments, visit http://www.fdic.gov/regulations/laws/federal/. Follow instructions for submitting comments on the agency Web site.)

PROPOSED RULE: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is proposing to amend its regulations related to the medical use of byproduct material. In this action the NRC addresses three ongoing rulemaking projects and several other related topics. First, this rule proposes amendments to the reporting and notification requirements for a medical event for permanent implant brachytherapy. Second, the rule proposes changes to the training and experience (T&E) requirements for authorized users, medical physicists, Radiation Safety Officers, and nuclear pharmacists; to the requirements for measuring molybdenum (Mo) contamination and reporting of failed technetium and rubidium generators; and to allow Associate Radiation Safety Officers to be named on a medical license. Third, the rule proposes changes to address a request filed in a petition for rulemaking (PRM), PRM–35–20, to exempt certain board-certified individuals from certain T&E requirements (i.e., ‘‘grandfather’’ these individuals) so they may be identified on a license or permit for materials and uses that they performed on or before October 24, 2005, the expiration date of the prior T&E requirements.
