Federal Register Highlights – 8/31/15

August 31, 2015

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for August 31, 2015:

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard is establishing a temporary safety zone on Henderson Bay, Lake Ontario, Sackets Harbor, NY for a triathlon event. This safety zone is intended to restrict vessels from a portion of Lake Ontario during the swimming portion of the Incredoubleman Triathlon event. This temporary safety zone is necessary to protect participants, spectators, mariners, and vessels from the navigational hazards associated with a large scale swimming event. This rule is effective from 7 a.m. on September 12, 2015 until 10 a.m. on September 13, 2015.

TEMPORARY RULE: The Coast Guard is establishing temporary safety zones in the Port of Dutch Harbor, Broad Bay or adjacent navigable waters in the Dutch Harbor area on July 15, 2015. The temporary safety zones will encompass the navigable waters within a 25-yard radius of moored or anchored offshore exploration or support vessels, and the navigable waters within a 100-yard radius of underway offshore exploration or support vessels. The purpose of the safety zones is to protect persons and vessels during an unusually high volume of vessel traffic in the Port of Dutch Harbor, and the adjacent territorial sea due to additional vessel traffic associated with exploratory drilling operations in the Chukchi and Beaufort seas during the summer of 2015. This rule is effective without actual notice from August 28, 2015 until August 31, 2015.

PROPOSED RULE: The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (“Commission” or “CFTC”) is proposing amendments to rules relating to swap data reporting in connection with cleared swaps for swap data repositories (“SDRs”), derivatives clearing organizations (“DCOs”), designated contract markets (“DCMs”), swap execution facilities (“SEFs”), swap dealers (“SDs”), major swap participants (“MSPs”), and swap counterparties who are neither SDs nor MSPs. Commodity Exchange Act (“CEA” or “Act”) provisions relating to swap data recordkeeping and reporting were added by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (“Dodd-Frank Act”). The proposed amendments to the rules further the goals of the Dodd-Frank Act to reduce systemic risk, increase transparency and promote market integrity within the financial system. Comments must be received on or before October 30, 2015. (To submit comments, visit, reference RIN 3038-AE12.)

PROPOSED RULE: In this document, the Commission proposes to modify the rules for program experimental licenses to permit experimentation for radio frequency (RF)-based medical devices, if the device being tested is designed to comply with all applicable service rules in Part 18, Industrial, Scientific, and Medical Equipment; Part 95, Personal Radio Services Subpart H—Wireless Medical Telemetry Service; or Part 95, Subpart I—Medical Device Radiocommunication Service. This proposal is designed to establish parity between all qualified medical device manufacturers for conducting basic research and clinical trials with RF-based medical devices as to permissible frequencies of operation. Comments must be filed on or before September 30, 2015 and reply comments must be filed on or before October 15, 2015. (To submit comments, visit, reference ET Docket 10-236.)
