ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: SUMMARY: This document amends Title 19 of the Code of Federal Regulations by making technical corrections to certain authority citations to reflect amendments to the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States effected by the President’s Proclamation of December 30, 2003, to implement the United States-Singapore Free Trade Agreement. September 7, 2005. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Suzanne Kingsbury, Regulations Branch, Office of Regulations and Rulings, Customs and Border Protection, Tel. (202) 572–8763. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: EFFECTIVE DATE: Background Chapter I of Title 19 of the Code of Federal Regulations (19 CFR Chapter I) contains general and specific authority citations, several of which reference certain General Note provisions of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). As a result of recent amendments to the HTSUS, several General Note provisions have been renumbered; however, the new designations are not yet reflected in Title 19 of the CFR. This document makes conforming technical corrections to Title 19 CFR to reflect the renumbered General Note provisions of the HTSUS. The amendments to the HTSUS were effected by the United States-Singapore Free Trade Agreement (‘‘USSFTA’’), Public Law 108–78, 117 Stat. 948 (19 U.S.C. 3805 note), enacted on September 3, 2003. On December 30, 2003, the President issued Proclamation 7747 (68 FR 75793) to implement certain provisions of the USSFTA. Annex I of Proclamation 7747 modified the HTSUS, in pertinent part, as follows: PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 • The text of General Note (GN) 19 to the HTSUS is transferred and designated as GN 3(e). • The text of General Note (GN) 20 to the HTS is transferred and designated as GN 3(f). • The text of General Notes (GN) 23 and 24 of the HTSUS is transferred and designated as GN 3(i) and (j), respectively. This document makes technical corrections to those provisions of 19 CFR Chapter 1 that contain references to the out-dated General Note citations. Inapplicability of Public Notice and Comment Requirement and Delayed Effective Date Requirement Because these amendments merely update certain authority citations in 19 CFR Chapter 1, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), CBP finds that good cause exists for dispensing with notice and public procedure as unnecessary. For these same reasons, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), CBP finds that good cause exists for dispensing with the requirement for a delayed effective date. The Regulatory Flexibility Act Because this document is not subject to the notice and public procedure requirements of 5 U.S.C. 553, it is not subject to the provisions of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. et seq.). Executive Order 12866 These amendments do not meet the criteria for a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ as specified in E.O. 12866. Signing Authority This document is limited to technical corrections and is being issued in accordance with 19 CFR 0.1(b)(1), which provides, pursuant to Treasury Department Order No. 100–16, the Secretary of Homeland Security with the authority to prescribe and approve regulations relating to customs revenue functions on behalf of the Secretary of the Treasury when the subject matter of the regulations is not listed in paragraph 1(a)(i) of the order. Such regulations are the official regulations of both Departments notwithstanding that they are not signed by an official of the Department of the Treasury. Accordingly, these regulations are signed by the Commissioner of Customs and Border Protection as the delegate of the Secretary of Homeland Security.

Interim final rule and request for comments. ACTION: SUMMARY: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is amending the interim final rule on use of materials derived from cattle in human food and cosmetics published in the Federal Register of July 14, 2004. In the July 14, 2004, interim final rule, FDA designated certain materials from cattle, including the entire small intestine, as ‘‘prohibited cattle materials’’ and banned the use of such materials in human food, including dietary supplements, and in cosmetics. FDA is taking this action in response to comments received on the interim final rule. Information was provided in comments that persuaded the agency that the distal ileum, one of three portions of the small intestine, could be consistently and effectively removed from the small intestine, such that the remainder of the small intestine, formerly a prohibited cattle material, could be used for human food or cosmetics. We (FDA) are also clarifying that milk and milk products, hide and hide-derived products, and VerDate Aug<18>2005 15:01 Sep 06, 2005 Jkt 205001 tallow derivatives are not prohibited cattle materials. Comments also led the agency to reconsider the method cited in the interim final rule for determining insoluble impurities in tallow and to cite instead a method that is less costly to use and requires less specialized equipment. FDA issued the interim final rule to minimize human exposure to materials that scientific studies have demonstrated are highly likely to contain the bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) agent in cattle infected with the disease. FDA believes that the amended provisions of the interim final rule provide the same level of protection from human exposure to the agent that causes BSE as the original provisions. DATES: The amendments to the interim final rule are effective October 7, 2005. Submit written or electronic comments on the amendments to the interim final rule by November 7, 2005. The Director of the Office of the Federal Register approves the incorporation by reference in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552(a) and 1 CFR part 51 of certain publications in 21 CFR 189.5 and 700.27 as of October 7, 2005.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background On July 14, 2004, FDA issued an interim final rule entitled ‘‘Use of Materials Derived From Cattle in Human Food and Cosmetics’’ (also referred to as ‘‘the interim final rule’’), to address the potential risk of BSE in human food and cosmetics (69 FR 42256, July 14, 2004). In the interim final rule, FDA designated certain materials from cattle as ‘‘prohibited cattle materials’’ and banned the use of such materials in human food, including dietary supplements, and in cosmetics in §§ 189.5 and 700.27 (21 CFR 189.5 and 21 CFR 700.27). In the interim final rule, FDA designated the following as prohibited cattle materials: Specified risk materials (SRMs), the small intestine from all cattle, material from nonambulatory cattle, material from cattle not inspected and passed for human consumption, and mechanically separated (MS)(Beef). The materials designated as SRMs were the brain, skull, eyes, trigeminal ganglia, spinal cord, vertebral column (excluding the vertebrae of the tail, the transverse processes of the thoracic and lumbar vertebrae, and the wings of the sacrum), and dorsal root ganglia of cattle 30 months and older, and the distal ileum of the small intestine and tonsils from all cattle. The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) designated the same list of materials as SRMs in its rule entitled ‘‘Prohibition of the Use of Specified Risk Materials for Human Food and Requirements for the Disposition of Non-ambulatory Disabled Cattle’’ (69 FR 1862, January 12, 2004). In addition, FDA provided an alternative standard for tallow in its interim final rule. Tallow must be produced by either excluding prohibited cattle materials or, if produced using prohibited cattle materials, must contain no more than 0.15 percent insoluble impurities. Tallow derivatives were exempted from E:\FR\FM\07SER1.SGM 07SER1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    Chapter I of Title 19 of the Code of Federal Regulations (19 CFR 
Chapter I) contains general and specific authority citations, several 
of which reference certain General Note provisions of the Harmonized 
Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). As a result of recent 
amendments to the HTSUS, several General Note provisions have been 
renumbered; however, the new designations are not yet reflected in 
Title 19 of the CFR. This document makes conforming technical 
corrections to Title 19 CFR to reflect the renumbered General Note 
provisions of the HTSUS.
    The amendments to the HTSUS were effected by the United States-
Singapore Free Trade Agreement (``USSFTA''), Public Law 108-78, 117 
Stat. 948 (19 U.S.C. 3805 note), enacted on September 3, 2003. On 
December 30, 2003, the President issued Proclamation 7747 (68 FR 75793) 
to implement certain provisions of the USSFTA. Annex I of Proclamation 
7747 modified the HTSUS, in pertinent part, as follows:
     The text of General Note (GN) 19 to the HTSUS is 
transferred and designated as GN 3(e).
     The text of General Note (GN) 20 to the HTS is transferred 
and designated as GN 3(f).
     The text of General Notes (GN) 23 and 24 of the HTSUS is 
transferred and designated as GN 3(i) and (j), respectively.
    This document makes technical corrections to those provisions of 19 
CFR Chapter 1 that contain references to the out-dated General Note 
citations.

Inapplicability of Public Notice and Comment Requirement and Delayed 
Effective Date Requirement

    Because these amendments merely update certain authority citations 
in 19 CFR Chapter 1, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B), CBP finds that 
good cause exists for dispensing with notice and public procedure as 
unnecessary. For these same reasons, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), 
CBP finds that good cause exists for dispensing with the requirement 
for a delayed effective date.

The Regulatory Flexibility Act

    Because this document is not subject to the notice and public 
procedure requirements of 5 U.S.C. 553, it is not subject to the 
provisions of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. et seq.).

Executive Order 12866

    These amendments do not meet the criteria for a ``significant 
regulatory action'' as specified in E.O. 12866.

Signing Authority

    This document is limited to technical corrections and is being 
issued in accordance with 19 CFR 0.1(b)(1), which provides, pursuant to 
Treasury Department Order No. 100-16, the Secretary of Homeland 
Security with the authority to prescribe and approve regulations 
relating to customs revenue functions on behalf of the Secretary of the 
Treasury when the subject matter of the regulations is not listed in 
paragraph 1(a)(i) of the order. Such regulations are the official 
regulations of both Departments notwithstanding that they are not 
signed by an official of the Department of the Treasury. Accordingly, 
these regulations are signed by the Commissioner of Customs and Border 
Protection as the delegate of the Secretary of Homeland Security.
