Notice of policy. AGENCY: ACTION: rmajette on PROD1PC67 with RULES1 SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is announcing its policy regarding the term ‘‘port or place of destination’’ used in our notice of arrival regulations in 33 CFR Part 160, Subpart C. We are issuing this notice to provide clarification as to how that term will be used by Coast Guard personnel enforcing our notice of arrival regulations. DATES: This notice is effective October 24, 2006. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: If you have any questions regarding this document, contact Lieutenant Junior Grade Julie Miller, Office of Vessel Activities (G–PCV), Coast Guard, by email, Julie.E.Miller@uscg.mil, or telephone 202–372–1244. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background and Purpose Representatives from the maritime industry have requested clarification of the definition of ‘‘port or place of destination’’ found in 33 CFR 160.204. This term is defined as ‘‘any port or place in which a vessel is bound to anchor or moor.’’ These requests for clarification arise from two situations. First, while many vessels arriving at a port or place of destination when operating solely between ports or places within a single Captain of the Port (COTP) zone are exempt from submitting a notice of arrival (NOA), 33 VerDate Aug<31>2005 14:23 Oct 23, 2006 Jkt 211001 CFR 160.203(b)(2), vessels carrying certain dangerous cargo (CDC) are not. A vessel carrying CDC must submit a NOA for any port or place of destination, including movements within a COTP zone. Because of confusion about the term ‘‘port or place of destination,’’ some vessels carrying CDC submit NOAs every time the vessel changes berths or piers in the same port in certain COTP zones, while others only submit NOAs when they depart the current port and enter another port within the same COTP zone. Second, in some U.S. ports, after entering the port, transit time or distance to the berth is lengthy. Ports in Portland, OR, and New Orleans, LA, are two examples. In such situations the cognizant COTP may have an interest in when certain vessels arrive at the sea buoy or pilot station. In other U.S. ports, where transits are short or where the vessel must transit through another COTP zone to arrive at its intended berth (for example, transiting Hampton Roads, VA to get to Baltimore, MD) the COTP uses the vessel’s arrival time at the berth or dock as the basis for enforcing compliance with the NOA regulation submission requirements. Policy In the two situations described above, the Coast Guard will exercise its discretion in enforcing NOA regulations as follows. A vessel required to submit a NOA for ports or places of destination within a single COTP zone (for example, a vessel carrying CDCs) need only do so if the vessel is actually moving from one port to another port within that COTP zone. The Coast Guard will not view the movement from one dock to another dock, one berth to another berth, or one anchorage to another anchorage within one port as being a transit from one ‘‘port or place of destination’’ to a different ‘‘port or place of destination.’’ A sea buoy or pilot station for a port will not be considered the arrival point for a vessel bound to anchor or moor in that port unless either the sea buoy or pilot station is the actual location where the vessel is bound to anchor or moor. If, based on information about a particular vessel, a COTP finds it necessary to know when that vessel reaches a sea buoy or pilot station, under separate authority he or she may issue an appropriate order specific to that vessel. The order may direct the vessel operator to advise the COTP when the vessel arrives, or is estimated to arrive, at the sea buoy or pilot station. It is anticipated this authority will be exercised only when necessary and will be specific to a particular vessel. PO 00000 Frm 00014 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Dated: October 13, 2006. F.J. Sturm, Captain, U.S. Coast Guard, Acting Director of Inspections and Compliance. [FR Doc. E6–17822 Filed 10–23–06; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4910–15–P ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY 40 CFR Part 52 [EPA–R03–OAR–2006–0607; FRL–8233–2] Approval and Promulgation of Air Quality Implementation Plans; Maryland; State Implementation Plan Revision for American Cyanamid Company, Havre de Grace, MD Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: SUMMARY: EPA is approving a State Implementation Plan (SIP) revision submitted by the State of Maryland. The intended effect of this action is to remove an August 2, 1984 Secretarial Order (Order) from the Maryland SIP. The Order constituted a Plan for Compliance (PFC) and an alternative method of assessing compliance at an American Cyanamid Company (Company) facility located in Havre de Grace, Harford County, Maryland (the Facility). The Order allowed for certain volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions sources at the Facility to achieve compliance with emissions limits through averaging (or ‘‘bubbling’’) of emissions over a 24-hour period. Removal of the Order from the SIP will remove the ‘‘bubbling’’ compliance option for these sources at the Facility. In lieu of ‘‘bubbling,’’ the sources must comply with the approved and more stringent Maryland SIP provisions for the control of VOC emissions, which do not allow averaging or ‘‘bubbling.’’ This action is being taken under the Clean Air Act (CAA or the Act). EFFECTIVE DATE: This final rule is effective on November 24, 2006. ADDRESSES: EPA has established a docket for this action under Docket ID Number EPA R03–OAR–2006–0607. All documents in the docket are listed in the http://www.regulations.gov Web site. Although listed in the electronic docket, some information is not publicly available, i.e., confidential business information (CBI) or other information whose disclosure is restricted by statute.

NASA internal procedures: 14 CFR 1260.12(c)(3)(iii) is revised to 
identify the new name of the Science Mission Directorate's (SMD's) 
graduate fellowship program; and 14 CFR 1274.211(a) is revised to 
conform the HQ public announcement procedures to those in the NASA FAR

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

A. Background

    Following a reorganization, the NASA Earth System Science 
Fellowship Program was renamed the NASA Earth and Space Science 
Fellowship Program. This final rule includes the administrative change 
to 14 CFR 1260.12(c)(3)(iii) to reflect the new program title.
    Section 1805.303-71 of the NFS has been revised to require 
notification of the Administrator at least three days before the public 
announcement of contract award. This final rule makes an administrative 
change to the Grant Handbook to establish the same notification period 
for cooperative agreements with commercial firms.

B. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    NASA certifies that this final rule will not have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities within the 
meaning of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601, et seq, 
because the changes are merely administrative and affect only internal 
Agency procedures.

C. Paperwork Reduction Act

    The Paperwork Reduction Act does not apply because this rule does 
not impose any new recordkeeping or information collection 
requirements, or collection of information from offerors, contractors, 
or members of the public that require the approval of the Office of 
Management and Budget under 44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.
