The NRC staff has determined that the amendment involves no significant increase in the amounts, and no significant change in the types, of any effluents that may be released offsite, and that there is no significant increase in individual or cumulative occupational radiation exposure. The Commission has previously issued a proposed finding that the amendment involves no significant hazards consideration, and there has been no public comment on such finding issued on [Date] ([ ] FR [ ]). Accordingly, the amendment meets the eligibility criteria for categorical exclusion set forth in 10 CFR 51.22(c)(9).

USTR invites written comments from the public concerning the issues raised in this dispute.

See 71 FR 11189. DATES: Although USTR will accept any comments received during the course of the dispute settlement proceedings, comments should be submitted on or before November 15, 2006 to be assured of timely consideration by USTR.

The complete application is available for a fee from the Commission’s Public Reference Branch, 100 F Street, NE., Washington, DC 20549–1580 (202–551–8090). Applicant’s Representations 1. ITG, a Delaware corporation, provides electronic execution, technology-based equity trading, and research services to a number of large institutional clients. ITG began operations in 1987 as a division of Jefferies & Company, Inc. (‘‘Jefferies Broker-Dealer’’), a broker-dealer registered under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (‘‘1934 Act’’) and a wholly owned subsidiary of Jefferies Group, Inc. (‘‘Jefferies Group’’). In 1991, ITG was incorporated separately as a wholly owned subsidiary of Jefferies Group. In 1994, ITG made an initial public offering of its common stock, with Jefferies Group continuing to own approximately 80% of ITG’s outstanding common stock. In 1999, Jefferies Group transferred all of its assets and liabilities relating to its full-service brokerage and investment banking business, including Jefferies Broker-Dealer (and not including ITG, which remained as Jefferies Group’s sole asset), to a new corporation (‘‘New Jefferies Group’’), and distributed shares of New Jefferies Group to Jefferies Group’s shareholders. Jefferies Group then merged with and was renamed ITG. New Jefferies Group and ITG are not affiliated persons PO 00000 Frm 00071 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 63055 within the meaning of the Act. The Chairman of the Board, President and Chief Executive Officer of ITG, Mr. Raymond L. Killian, was an Executive Vice President of Jefferies Group at the time of, but was not involved in the conduct underlying, the 1987 Injunction, as defined below. 2. On March 19, 1987, the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York entered a permanent injunction against Mr. Boyd L. Jefferies (‘‘Mr. Jefferies’’), Jefferies Broker-Dealer, and Jefferies Group, prohibiting them from violating, or aiding and abetting violations of, certain provisions of the 1934 Act (‘‘1987 Injunction’’).1 The violations involved manipulating the market in certain securities and engaging in ‘‘parking’’ during the period 1985–86. The Commission also instituted and settled administrative proceedings against Mr. Jefferies and Jefferies Broker-Dealer.2 Applicant’s Legal Analysis 1. Section 9(a) of the Act, in relevant part, prohibits any person who has been enjoined from engaging in or continuing any conduct or practice in connection with the purchase or sale of a security, and any other company of which the person is or hereafter becomes an affiliated person, from acting, among other things, as a principal underwriter or investment adviser for registered investment companies (‘‘funds’’). Applicant states that the 1987 Injunction prohibits it from serving funds in the manner described in section 9(a). Applicant further states that, although it has not served and does not serve in any such capacity with respect to any fund, as a financial services company, applicant in the future may determine to become an investment adviser or principal underwriter to funds, or an affiliated person of such an adviser or underwriter. 2. Section 9(c) of the Act provides that the Commission shall grant an application for an exemption from the disqualification provisions of section 9(a) if it is established that these provisions, as applied to the applicant, are unduly or disproportionately severe or that the conduct of applicant has been such as not to make it against the public interest or the protection of investors to grant the application. Applicant seeks an order under section 9(c) with respect to the 1987 Injunction. 1 Securities and Exchange Commission v. Boyd L. Jefferies, et al., Litigation Release No. 11370 (March 19, 1987). 2 In the Matter of Jefferies & Company, Inc. and Boyd L. Jefferies, Exchange Act Release No. 24231 (March 19, 1987).

Zeroing and Certain Investigations, Administrative Reviews and Sunset 
Reviews Involving Products From the European Communities

AGENCY: Office of the United States Trade Representative.

ACTION: Notice; request for comments.

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

SUMMARY: The Office of the United States Trade Representative 
(``USTR'') is providing notice that the European Communities (EC) has 
requested consultations with the United States under the Marrakesh 
Agreement Establishing the World Trade Organization (``WTO Agreement'') 
concerning various measures relating to zeroing and antidumping duty 
orders on certain products from the EC. The EC alleges that 
determinations made by U.S. authorities concerning these products, and 
certain related matters, are inconsistent with Articles 1, 2.1, 2.4, 
2.4.2, 5.8, 9.1, 9.3, 9.5, 11, 18.3 and 18.4 of the Agreement on 
Implementation of Article VI of the General Agreement on Tariffs and 
Trade 1994 (``AD Agreement''), Article VI of the General Agreement on 
Tariffs and Trade 1994 (``GATT 1994''), and Article XVI:4 of the WTO 
Agreement. That request may be found at http://www.wto.org contained in 
documents designated as WT/DS350/1 and WT/DS350/1/Add.1. USTR invites 
written comments from the public concerning the issues raised in this 
dispute. In connection with the issues raised in the request for 
consultations, the public should be aware that on March 6, 2006, the 
Department of Commerce announced that it will no longer use ``zeroing'' 
when making average-to-average comparisons in an antidumping 
investigation. See 71 FR 11189.

DATES: Although USTR will accept any comments received during the 
course of the dispute settlement proceedings, comments should be 
submitted on or before November 15, 2006 to be assured of timely 
consideration by USTR.

ADDRESSES: Comments should be submitted (i) electronically, to 
FR0702@ustr.eop.gov, Attn: ``EC Zeroing II (DS350)'' in the subject 
line, or (ii) by fax, to Sandy McKinzy at (202) 395-3640. For documents 
sent by fax, USTR requests that the submitter provide a confirmation 
copy to the electronic mail address listed above.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Elissa Alben, Assistant General 
Counsel, Office of the United States Trade Representative, 600 17th 
Street, NW., Washington, DC 20508, (202) 395-9622.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: USTR is providing notice that consultations 
have been requested pursuant to the WTO Understanding on Rules and 
Procedures Governing the Settlement of Disputes (``DSU''). If such 
consultations should fail to resolve the matter and a dispute 
settlement panel is established pursuant to the DSU, such panel, which 
would hold its meetings in Geneva, Switzerland, would be expected to 
issue a report on its findings and recommendations within nine months 
after it is established.

Major Issues Raised by the EC

    With respect to the measures at issue, the EC's request for 
consultations refers to the following:
    1. The implementing regulations of the U.S. Department of Commerce 
(``DOC''), Sec.  19 CFR Part 351, in particular Sec.  351.414(c)(2);

    Information or advice contained in a comment submitted, other than 
business confidential information, may be determined by USTR to be 
confidential in accordance with section 135(g)(2) of the Trade Act of 
1974 (19 U.S.C. 2155(g)(2)). If the submitter believes that information 
or advice may qualify as such, the submitter--

of an appeal from such a panel, the U.S. submissions, the submissions, 
or non-confidential summaries of submissions, received from other

applicable, the report of the Appellate Body. An appointment to review 
the public file (Docket No. WT/DS-350, EC Zeroing II) may be made by
