Background In the Federal Register of May 6, 2005 (70 FR 24079), we published a notice to announce a public workshop entitled ‘‘Biological Products for Treatment of Rare Plasma Protein Disorders.’’ On June 13 and 14, 2005, we, in cosponsorship with the Office of Public Health and Science in the Department of Health and Human Services, held the workshop to facilitate the development of biological products used to treat patients with rare plasma protein disorders and to discuss related scientific and regulatory challenges. The following topics were discussed at the workshop: • Patients’ and physicians’ perspective on the need for products to treat rare plasma protein disorders; • The availability of registries and databases to identify patients for clinical trials; • Differences between international and FDA regulatory approaches to the licensure of products for treating rare plasma protein diseases; • Case studies describing the application of current FDA regulatory pathways to product development; • Issues of product reimbursement; and • Incentives for product development, such as the availability of small business and research grants, and orphan drug provisions. The meeting concluded with proposals for advancing product development, and suggestions for future PO 00000 Frm 00032 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 discussions on this topic. At the end of the workshop, we invited written comments to provide an opportunity for additional information and discussion of the issues.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Coast Guard and the Maritime Administration (MARAD) announce the cancellation of an Environmental Assessment (EA) that they previously planned as a follow-up to MARAD’s approval of the license application for the Port Pelican LLC Deepwater Port in the Gulf of Mexico off Louisiana. The EA would have assessed the environmental impact of related shoreside fabrication site activities in Texas. The Coast Guard and MARAD are canceling the EA, due to Port Pelican LLC’s decision to defer these fabrication site activities indefinitely. VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:55 Oct 03, 2005 Jkt 205001 If you have questions about the Port Pelican LLC Deepwater Port project, contact LCDR Derek Dostie, Deepwater Ports Standards Division, United States Coast Guard at (202) 267–0662 or ddostie@comdt.uscg.mil. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: On November 14, 2003, the Maritime Administrator issued a Record of Decision (ROD) approving the application of Port Pelican LLC for a license to construct and operate a liquefied natural gas deepwater port on the Outer Continental Shelf, in the Gulf of Mexico approximately 36 miles south-southwest of Freshwater City, LA. As indicated in the deepwater port?s final Environmental Impact Statement (notice of availability, 68 FR 52048, August. 29, 2003) and in the ROD, the deepwater port would use concrete structures prefabricated at a shoreside site and approval of the deepwater port license application was conditioned on Coast Guard and MARAD issuance of a supplemental National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) document to assess the impact of the shoreside fabrication site activities. On June 25, 2004, the Coast Guard and MARAD announced their intent to prepare that EA. Port Pelican LLC has now informed the Coast Guard and MARAD that it will not pursue its plans for the Port Aransas site at this time, and therefore the Coast Guard and MARAD are canceling their plans for the supplemental EA. The Coast Guard and MARAD will publicly announce resumption of NEPA document preparation should Port Pelican LLC elect to resume its plans for shoreside fabrication activities.

Frm 00033 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 ACTION: 57885 Notice of Fee Waiver. SUMMARY: On August 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina devastated the coastlines of Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. The Regional Examination Center (REC) at New Orleans, which serves 14% of mariners nation-wide and reflects about 29,000 mariners in those three states, was completely flooded, destroying vital records and equipment, and rendering the facility temporarily inoperable. Since mariners in the area may also have lost their credentials in the storm and subsequent flooding, the Coast Guard is hereby implementing temporary measures to relieve some hardship on mariners in the Gulf coast area who need replacement credentials. This Notice is effective October 4, 2005. DATES: If you have questions on this notice, call Mr. Donald J. Kerlin, Deputy Director, Coast Guard National Maritime Center (NMC), (202) 493–1006. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mariners whose homes of record are in the states of Louisiana, Mississippi or Alabama as confirmed by the Coast Guard’s merchant mariner licensing and documentation system (MMLD), and have lost their merchant mariner’s document (MMD), merchant mariner’s license, or certificate of registry (COR) (collectively referred to as ‘‘credentials’’) may apply at any REC to receive a duplicate credential that will bear the same expiration date and qualifications as the original credential that was lost. Until February 28, 2006, the fee usually charged for the issuance of duplicate credentials, will be waived. Additionally, any mariner who applied for a duplicate credential between August 29, 2005 and the publication of this Notice, and paid any fee may apply for a refund at the issuing REC. This waiver only applies to duplicate credentials that replace credentials held before the hurricane. It does not apply to routine renewals or transactions that enhance the mariner’s authority (raises of grade). Also, all other provisions and requirements in Title 46, Code of Federal Regulations (46 CFR) 10.219 and 12.02–23 still apply. Since REC New Orleans is expected to remain closed for approximately six months or more, additional resources are being allocated to RECs Memphis, Houston, Miami and Charleston. Mariners may also seek help at any of the other 12 RECs around the country, a list of which appears at 46 CFR 10.105 and 12.01–7. You may also call Mr. Kerlin for assistance at the number SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: E:\FR\FM\04OCN1.SGM 04OCN1
