The purpose of the NOSB is to make recommendations about whether a substance should be allowed or prohibited in organic production or handling, to assist in the development of standards for substances to be used in organic production, and to advise the Secretary on other aspects of the implementation of the OFPA. The NOSB met for the first time in Washington, DC, in March 1992, and currently has six committees working on various aspects of the organic program. The committees are: Compliance, Accreditation, and Certification; Crops; Livestock; Materials; Handling; and Policy Development. In August of 1994, the NOSB provided its initial recommendations for the National Organic Program (NOP) to the Secretary of Agriculture. Since that time, the NOSB has submitted 99 addenda to its recommendations and reviewed more than 269 substances for inclusion on the National List of Allowed and Prohibited Substances. The last meeting of the NOSB was held on November 16–17, 2005, in Washington, DC. The Department of Agriculture (USDA) published its final National Organic Program regulation in the Federal Register on December 21, 2000, (65 FR 80548). The rule became effective April 21, 2001.

United States Standards for Grades of Canned Fruits for Salad, 
and United States Standards for Grades of Canned Fruit Cocktail

AGENCY: Agricultural Marketing Service, USDA.

ACTION: Notice; correction.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The United States Standards for Grades of Canned Fruits for 
Salad, and United States Standards for Grades of Canned Fruit Cocktail 
are revised to reflect the change in the character classification for 
Grade ``B'' canned pears made previously in the United States Standards 
for Grades of Canned Pears.

DATES: Effective April 21, 2006.

Amendment for Character Classification

    A Notice was published in the Federal Register, (69 FR 63612) dated 
October 29, 2004, revising the United States Standards for Grades of 
Canned Pears, issued under the Agricultural Marketing Act of 1946 (7 
U.S.C. 1621-1627) effective November 29, 2004. This change affected the 
character classification for Grade ``B'' slices and diced for canned 
pears to read ``the units are reasonably tender or tenderness may be 
variable within the unit.'' A conforming change to the United States 
Standard for Grades of Canned Fruits for Salad and the United States 
Standards for Grades of Canned Fruit Cocktail should have been changed 
in this regard.
    Accordingly, the Notice published in the Federal Register on 
October 29, 2004, at 69 FR 63612 is corrected by adding a conforming 
change to provide that the Grade ``B'' character classification of 
canned pears for the United States Standards for Grades of Canned 
Fruits for Salad and United States Standards for Grades of Canned Fruit 
Cocktail is changed by adding the statement ``the units are reasonably 
tender or tenderness may be variable within the unit.'' This change 
will affect section 52.3843 Character(c)(3) of the Canned Fruits for 
Salads and section 52.1063 Character (c)(2) of the Canned Fruit 
Cocktail.
