Federal Register Highlights – 9/29/14

September 29, 2014

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for September 29, 2014:

PROPOSED RULE: The Coast Guard proposes to amend 33 CFR 165.164 by establishing three security zones to replace the three regulated navigation areas (RNAs) currently contained within this section. The Coast Guard also proposes to disestablish these three RNAs. The three proposed security zones, just like the RNAs they replace, are meant to promote public safety and to protect dignitaries who visit the United Nations in New York, NY. Comments and related material must be received by the Coast Guard on or before October 29, 2014. (To submit comments, visit http://www.regulations.gov.

PROPOSED RULE: The Department of Defense (‘‘Department’’) proposes to amend its regulation that implements the Military Lending Act, herein referred to as the ‘‘MLA’’. Among other protections for Service members, the MLA limits the amount of interest that a creditor may charge on ‘‘consumer credit’’ to a maximum annual percentage rate of 36 percent. The Department is proposing to amend its existing regulation primarily for the purpose of extending the protections of the MLA to a broader range of closed-end and open-end credit products, rather than the limited credit products currently defined as consumer credit. In addition, the Department is proposing to amend its existing regulation to amend the provisions governing a tool a creditor may use in assessing whether a consumer is a ‘‘covered borrower,’’ modify the disclosures that a creditor must provide to a covered borrower, implement the enforcement provisions of the MLA, as amended, and for other purposes. Comments must be submitted not later than November 28, 2014. (To submit comments, visit http://www.regulations.gov. Click here to be taken directly to the commenting page.)

PROPOSED RULE: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA or we) is proposing to amend our 2013 proposed rule for Current Good Manufacturing Practice (CGMP) and Hazard Analysis and Risk-Based Preventive Controls for Food for Animals. In that 2013 proposed rule, we proposed to add CGMP requirements for animal food and to add requirements for certain domestic and foreign facilities to establish and implement hazard analysis and risk- based preventive controls for food for animals. We are taking this action because the input we have received from public comments has led to significant changes in our current thinking on certain key provisions of this proposed rule. We are reopening the comment period only with respect to specific issues identified in this proposed rule. Submit either electronic or written comments on the proposed rule by December 15, 2014.

PROPOSED RULE: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is revising certain provisions of the proposed rule, issued in July 2013, on foreign supplier verification programs (FSVPs) for importers of food for humans and animals. We are primarily revising the proposed requirements concerning compliance status review of food and foreign suppliers, hazard analysis, and supplier verification activities. We are taking this action in response to the extensive public input we have received regarding these provisions and in coordination with revisions we are concurrently making to the proposed rule on current good manufacturing practice (CGMP) and hazard analysis and risk-based preventive controls for human food. We are seeking public comment on the revised proposed FSVP regulations. We are reopening the comment period on the proposed rule only with respect to the specific provisions identified in this Federal Register document. Submit either electronic or written comments on the supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking by December 15, 2014. (To submit comments, visit http://www.regulations.gov.

PROPOSED RULE: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA or we) is proposing to amend our 2013 proposed rule for Current Good Manufacturing Practice (CGMP) and Hazard Analysis and Risk-Based Preventive Controls for Human Food. In that 2013 proposed rule, we proposed to amend the CGMP requirements to modernize them and to add requirements for certain domestic and foreign facilities to establish and implement hazard analysis and risk-based preventive controls for human food. We also proposed to revise certain definitions in our current regulation for Registration of Food Facilities to clarify the scope of an exemption from registration requirements for ‘‘farms’’ and, in so doing, to clarify which domestic and foreign facilities would be subject to the proposed requirements for hazard analysis and risk-based preventive controls for human food. We are taking this action because the extensive input we have received from public comments has led to significant changes in our current thinking on certain key provisions of these proposed rules. We are reopening the comment period only with respect to specific issues identified in this proposed rule. Submit either electronic or written comments on the proposed rule by December 15, 2014.

PROPOSED RULE: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA or we) is proposing to amend certain specific provisions of the proposed rule, ‘‘Standards for the Growing, Harvesting, Packing, and Holding of Produce for Human Consumption.’’ We are taking this action because the extensive information received in public comments has led to significant changes in our current thinking on certain key provisions of the proposed rule. We are reopening the comment period only with respect to the specific issues identified in this document. Submit either electronic or written comments on the proposed rule by December 15, 2014.
