Federal Register Highlights – 10/17/16

October 19, 2016

Unpublished, time-sensitive and proposed rules for October 17, 2016:

PROPOSED RULE: The FAA is proposing to revise its rules for pilot compartment view to allow ground tests to demonstrate compliance for night operations. The current regulations require night flight testing to demonstrate compliance, which is not necessary in every case. The proposed rule would relieve the burden of performing a night flight test under certain conditions. Send comments on or before November 16, 2016. (To submit comments, visit www.regulations.gov, reference Docket No.: FAA–2016–9275.)

PROPOSED RULE: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is proposing to implement provisions of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the FD&C Act) to require electronic submission of the device label and package insert of certain home-use devices when these devices are listed with FDA. FDA plans to make this device labeling available to the public through the Internet and would also provide search tools to facilitate locating information concerning a particular home-use device or a particular type of home-use device. Submit either electronic or written comments on the proposed rule by January 17, 2017. (To submit comments, visit www.regulations.gov, reference Docket No. FDA–2016–N–2491.)

TEMPORARY RULE: NMFS implements accountability measures (AMs) for commercial king mackerel in the western zone of the Gulf of Mexico (Gulf) exclusive economic zone (EEZ) through this temporary rule. NMFS has determined that the commercial quota for king mackerel in the western zone of the Gulf EEZ will be reached by October 14, 2016. Therefore, NMFS closes the western zone of the Gulf EEZ to commercial king mackerel fishing on October 14, 2016. This closure is necessary to protect the Gulf king mackerel resource. The closure is effective at noon, local time, October 14, 2016, until 12:01 a.m., local time, on July 1, 2017.

PROPOSED RULE: NMFS proposes to implement management measures described in a framework action to the Fishery Management Plan for the Reef Fish Resources of the Gulf of Mexico (FMP), as prepared by the Gulf of Mexico (Gulf) Fishery Management Council (Gulf Council). If implemented, this proposed rule would revise the yellowtail snapper commercial and recreational fishing year and remove the requirement to use circle hooks for the commercial harvest of yellowtail snapper in the Gulf exclusive economic zone (EEZ) south of Cape Sable, Florida. The purpose of this proposed rule is to increase the operational efficiency of the yellowtail snapper component of the commercial reef fish fishery, achieve optimum yield, and decrease the regulatory burden of compliance with differing regulations established by separate regulatory agencies across the adjacent Gulf and South Atlantic jurisdictions. Written comments must be received by November 16, 2016. (To submit comments, visit www.regulations.gov, reference Docket No. NOAA–NMFS–2016–0058.)

PROPOSED RULE: In October 2016, the Postal Service filed a notice of mailing services price adjustments with the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) for products and services covered by Mailing Standards of the United States Postal Service, International Mail Manual (IMM®), to be effective on January 22, 2017. The Postal Service will revise Notice 123, Price List on Postal Explorer® at http://pe.usps.com to reflect the new prices. We must receive your comments on or before November 16, 2016. (Mail or deliver comments to the manager, Product Classification, U.S. Postal Service®, 475 L’Enfant Plaza SW., RM 4446, Washington, DC 20260– 5015.)

PROPOSED RULE: In October 2016, the Postal Service filed a notice of mailing services price adjustments with the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC), effective January 22, 2017. This proposed rule contains the revisions to Mailing Standards of the United States Postal Service, Domestic Mail Manual (DMM®) that we would adopt to implement the changes coincident with the price adjustments. We must receive comments on or before November 16, 2016. (Mail or deliver written comments to the manager, Product Classification, U.S. Postal Service®, 475 L’Enfant Plaza SW., Room 4446, Washington DC 20260–5015.)
