Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 89 / Wednesday, May 9, 2007 / Notices sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES that the workers’ firm did not produce an article within the meaning of Section 222 of the Trade Act and that the workers did not provide services in direct support of an affiliated TAA certified firm. On May 14, 2004, the Department filed its second consent motion for voluntary remand. The Department issued a negative determination on remand on August 2, 2004. The Department’s Notice of determination was published in the Federal Register on August 10, 2004 (69 FR 48527). The determination was based on findings that the workers at the subject facility did not produce or support the production of an article by IBM and were not under the control of BP. On December 2, 2005, the USCIT remanded the matter to the Department. On February 6, 2006, the Department issued a second negative determination on remand. The Department’s Notice of determination was published in the Federal Register on March 2, 2006 (71 FR 10709). The Department’s determination was based on findings that the criteria developed by the Department to determine the extent to which a worker group engaged in activities related to the production of an article by a producing firm was under the control of the producing firm had not been met. On March 30, 2007, the USCIT remanded the matter to the Department. The Department has determined after further review that during the relevant period, a significant number or proportion of the subject worker group was separated and that the subject worker group was working in support of, and under sufficient control of import impacted BP production facilities, whose workers were certified as eligible for TAA. Conclusion Based on review of the record evidence, I determine that BP controlled the subject worker group and that increased imports of articles like or directly competitive with crude oil produced by an affiliated facility which the subject worker group supported, contributed to the total or partial separation of a significant number or proportion of workers at the subject facility. In accordance with the provisions of the Act, I make the following certification: ‘‘All workers of International Business Machines Corporation, Tulsa, Oklahoma, who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after November 26, 2002, through two years from the issuance of this revised determination, are eligible to VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:12 May 08, 2007 Jkt 211001 apply for Trade Adjustment Assistance under Section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974.’’ Signed at Washington, DC this 2nd day of May 2007.

Title 30 CFR 56.13030 and 57.13030 require that fired pressure vessels (boilers) be equipped with safety devices approved by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) to protect against hazards from overpressure, flameouts, fuel interruptions and low water level. Sections 56/57.13030 requires that records of inspections and repairs be retained by the mine operator in accordance with the requirements of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code and the National Board Inspection Code (progressive records—no limit on retention time) and made available to the Secretary or his/her authorized representative.

Defects affecting safety are required to be corrected in a timely manner. In instances where the defect makes continued operation of the equipment unsafe, the standards require removal from service, tagging to identify that it is out of use, and repair before use is resumed. Title 30 CFR 56.18002 and 57.180002 require that a competent person designated by the operator shall examine each working place at least once each shift for conditions which may adversely affect safety or health. A record that such examinations were conducted shall be kept by the operator for a period of one year, and shall be made available for review by the Secretary or his/her authorized representative.

The proposed amendment request would change the name of one licensee, Texas Genco, LP (Texas Genco), to NRG South Texas LP. The name change results from purchase of Texas Genco’s parent company by NRG Energy, Inc. as approved by the NRC in January 2006. Before issuance of the proposed license amendments, the Commission will have made findings required by the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (the Act), and the Commission’s regulations. The Commission has made a proposed determination that the amendment request involves no significant hazards consideration. Under the Commission’s regulations in Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), Section 50.92, this means that operation of the facility in accordance with the proposed amendments would not (1) involve a significant increase in the probability or consequences of an accident previously evaluated; or (2) create the possibility of a new or different kind of accident from any accident previously evaluated; or (3) involve a significant reduction in a margin of safety. As required by 10 CFR 50.91(a), the licensee has provided its analysis of the issue of no significant hazards consideration, which is presented below: The proposed amendment[s] would only change the name of a licensee. The proposed name change does not involve a significant increase in the probability or consequences of an accident previously evaluated. The proposed name change does not create the possibility of a new or different kind of accident from any accident previously evaluated. The proposed name change does not involve a significant reduction in a margin of safety.
