Background As part of the on-going National Airspace Redesign, the FAA implemented the HAR program. The HAR program’s focus is to develop and implement fundamental improvements in navigation structure and operating methods to allow more flexible and efficient high altitude en route operations. In support of this program, the FAA is establishing new RNAV routes for use by suitably equipped aircraft. These new routes would allow users greater flexibility in route selection. In addition, users should achieve economic benefits derived from less restrictive routing options than are currently available in the jet route structure. These high altitude RNAV routes will be identified by the letter prefix ‘‘Q,’’ followed by a number consisting of from one to three digits. Related Rulemaking On April 8, 2003, the FAA published the Designation of Class A, B, C, D, and E Airspace Areas; Air Traffic Service Routes, and Reporting Points rule in the Federal Register (68 FR 16943). The purpose of the rule was to facilitate the establishment of RNAV routes in the National Airspace System (NAS) for use by aircraft with advanced navigation system capabilities. This rule adopted certain amendments proposed in Notice No. 02–20, Area Navigation and Miscellaneous Amendments. The rule revised and adopted several definitions in FAA regulations, including Air Traffic Service Routes, to be in concert with ICAO definitions; and reorganized the structure of FAA regulations concerning the designation of Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, airways, routes, and reporting points. The Proposal The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to establish 16 RNAV routes in the South Central United Fix .................................................................. PO 00000 Frm 00015 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 States within the airspace assigned to the Memphis Air Route Traffic Control Center (ARTCC). These routes are proposed as part of the HAR program to enhance safety, and to facilitate the more flexible and efficient use of the navigable airspace for en route instrument flight rules (IFR) operations within the Memphis ARTCC’s area of responsibility. The FAA has determined that this proposed regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. Therefore, this proposed regulation: (1) Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under Department of Transportation (DOT) Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034; February 26, 1979); and (3) does not warrant preparation of a regulatory evaluation as the anticipated impact is so minimal. Since this is a routine matter that will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this proposed rule, when promulgated, will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 71 Airspace, Incorporation by reference, Navigation (air). The Proposed Amendment In consideration of the foregoing, the Federal Aviation Administration proposes to amend 14 CFR part 71 as follows: PART 71—DESIGNATION OF CLASS A, B, C, D, AND E AIRSPACE AREAS; AIR TRAFFIC SERVICE ROUTES; AND REPORTING POINTS 1. The authority citation for part 71 continues to read as follows: Authority: 49 U.S.C. 106(g), 40103, 40113, 40120; E.O. 10854, 24 FR 9565, 3 CFR, 1959– 1963 Comp., p. 389. § 71.1 [Amended] 2. The incorporation by reference in 14 CFR 71.1 of FAA Order 7400.9N, Airspace Designations and Reporting Points, dated September 1, 2005 and effective September 15, 2005, is amended as follows: Paragraph 2006—Area Navigation Routes. * * * * * (Lat. 37°48′35″ N., long. 88°57′48″ W.)

ACTION: Proposed rule. SUMMARY: The Minor Use and Minor Species Animal Health Act of 2004 (MUMS act) amended the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the act) to establish new regulatory procedures that provide incentives intended to make more drugs legally available to veterinarians and animal owners for the treatment of minor animal species and uncommon diseases in major animal species. At this time, FDA is issuing proposed regulations to implement the act. These regulations propose procedures for designating a new animal drug as a minor use or minor species drug. Such designation establishes eligibility for the incentives provided by the MUMS act. DATES: Submit written or electronic comments on this document by December 12, 2005.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background In enacting the MUMS act (Public Law 108–282), Congress sought to encourage the development of animal drugs that are currently unavailable to minor species (species other than cattle, horses, swine, chickens, turkeys, dogs, and cats) in the United States or to major species afflicted with uncommon diseases or conditions (minor uses). Congress recognized that the markets for drugs intended to treat these species, diseases, or conditions are so small that there are often insufficient economic incentives to motivate sponsors to develop data to support approvals. Further, Congress recognized that some minor species populations are too small or their management systems too PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 diverse to make it practical to conduct traditional studies to demonstrate safety and effectiveness of these animal drugs. As a result of these limitations, sponsors have generally not been willing or able to collect data to support legal marketing of drugs for these species, diseases, or conditions. Consequently, Congress enacted the MUMS act, which amended the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the act) to provide incentives to develop new animal drugs for minor species and minor uses, while still ensuring appropriate safeguards for animal and human health. At this time, FDA is issuing proposed regulations to implement section 573 of the act (21 U.S.C. 360ccc-2). These regulations propose procedures for designating a new animal drug as a minor use or minor species drug. Such designation provides eligibility for certain incentives established by the MUMS act, including exclusive marketing rights associated with the conditional approval or approval of designated new animal drugs and for grants to support designated new animal drug development. In accordance with section 573 of the act, these proposed regulations provide for designation of a new animal drug to be granted only when the drug is intended for a minor use or use in a minor species and only when the same new animal drug, in the same dosage form, for the same intended use is not already approved under section 512 of the act (21 U.S.C. 360b), conditionally approved under section 571 of the act (21 U.S.C. 360ccc), or designated under section 573 of the act at the time that a sponsor requests designation. The incentives in the MUMS act and these proposed regulations are modeled on those provided by the human orphan drug program. These incentives include the following: (1) Eligibility for grants and contracts to defray the costs of qualified safety and effectiveness testing expenses and manufacturing expenses incurred in the development of designated new animal drugs and (2) a 7-year period of exclusive marketing rights to enable sponsors to recover costs of drug development without competition. Marketing exclusivity for nondesignated drugs is limited to 3 or 5 years of protection from generic copying (section 512(c)(2)(F) of the act). The exclusive marketing rights for designated drugs provide protection from generic copying and from approval of another pioneer application for the same drug, in the same dosage form, for the same intended use. Other major incentives of the MUMS act include the following: (1) Conditional approval, which is E:\FR\FM\27SEP1.SGM 27SEP1

procedure.

Background

    As part of the on-going National Airspace Redesign, the FAA 
implemented the HAR program. The HAR program's focus is to develop and 
implement fundamental improvements in navigation structure and 
operating methods to allow more flexible and efficient high altitude en 
route operations. In support of this program, the FAA is establishing 
new RNAV routes for use by suitably equipped aircraft. These new routes 
would allow users greater flexibility in route selection. In addition, 
users should achieve economic benefits derived from less restrictive 
routing options than are currently available in the jet route 
structure.
    These high altitude RNAV routes will be identified by the letter 
prefix ``Q,'' followed by a number consisting of from one to three 
digits.

Related Rulemaking

    On April 8, 2003, the FAA published the Designation of Class A, B, 
C, D, and E Airspace Areas; Air Traffic Service Routes, and Reporting 
Points rule in the Federal Register (68 FR 16943). The purpose of the 
rule was to facilitate the establishment of RNAV routes in the National 
Airspace System (NAS) for use by aircraft with advanced navigation 
system capabilities. This rule adopted certain amendments proposed in 
Notice No. 02-20, Area Navigation and Miscellaneous Amendments. The 
rule revised and adopted several definitions in FAA regulations, 
including Air Traffic Service Routes, to be in concert with ICAO 
definitions; and reorganized the structure of FAA regulations 
concerning the designation of Class A, B, C, D, and E airspace areas, 
airways, routes, and reporting points.

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 to establish 16 RNAV routes in the South 
Central United States within the airspace assigned to the Memphis Air 
Route Traffic Control Center (ARTCC). These routes are proposed as part 
of the HAR program to enhance safety, and to facilitate the more 
flexible and efficient use of the navigable airspace for en route 
instrument flight rules (IFR) operations within the Memphis ARTCC's 
area of responsibility.
    The FAA has determined that this proposed regulation only involves 
an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and 
routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. 
Therefore, this proposed regulation: (1) Is not a ``significant 
regulatory action'' under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a 
``significant rule'' under Department of Transportation (DOT) 
Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034; February 26, 1979); 
and (3) does not warrant preparation of a regulatory evaluation as the 
anticipated impact is so minimal. Since this is a routine matter that 
will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is 
certified that this proposed rule, when promulgated, will not have a 
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities 
under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
