This NUREG–1556, Volume 21, is entitled: ‘‘Consolidated Guidance About Materials Licenses—Program-Specific Guidance About Possession Licenses for Production of Radioactive Material Using an Accelerator.’’ At this time, NRC is announcing the availability for public comment NUREG–1556, Volume 9, Revision 2, ‘‘Consolidated Guidance About Materials Licenses—Program-Specific Guidance About Medical Use Licenses,’’ Draft Report for Comment. The other two NUREGs were previously noticed for public comment: (1) NUREG–1556, Volume 13, Revision 1, on July 3, 2007 (72 FR 36526) and (2) NUREG–1556, Volume 21, on May 29, 2007 (72 FR 29555). NUREG–1556, Volume 9, Revision 2, ‘‘Consolidated Guidance About Materials Licenses—Program-Specific Guidance About Medical Use Licenses,’’ provides guidance for applicants in preparing their license applications for the medical use of byproduct material. Volume 9 is being revised primarily to provide additional guidance related to the NARM rule, as discussed above. In the draft final rule for the NARM rulemaking, the concept of consortiums and noncommercial distribution was addressed. In summary, because of the short-lived radionuclides associated with Positron Emission Tomography (PET), the source of these radioactive materials needs to be produced in the facility of use or within close proximity. The NRC developed a new regulatory process based on existing practices for consortiums and noncommercial distribution. For this purpose, educational institutions, medical use facilities or Federal facilities may form consortiums with adjacent or nearby hospitals to jointly own or share in the operation and maintenance costs of the PET radionuclide production facility. This is discussed in more detail in SECY–07–0062, ‘‘Final Rule: Requirements for Expanded Definition of Byproduct Material,’’ dated April 3, 2007, and within the draft Federal Register notice that is provided as an attachment to SECY–07–0062. NUREG–1556, Volume 9, Revision 2, provides guidance for applicants in licensees about consortiums and noncommercial distribution in Sections 1 and 8, and in Appendix AA. NRC is requesting specific comments on this guidance to ensure that it is clear and easily understood by affected stakeholders. It is also being revised to clarify training and experience requirements, replaces NRC Form 313A with six new NRC Form 313A forms specific to types VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:42 Aug 01, 2007 Jkt 211001 of authorizations. References and information related to Subpart J of 10 CFR Part 35 have been removed since these regulatory requirements expired on October 25, 2005. Additionally, other minor changes are being made that are administrative in nature, such as updating the Agreement State section and updating references. Also, information related to identifying and protecting sensitive information is being updated. NRC is only requesting comments on the specific changes in this document related to those revisions discussed above. NRC will make corrections if any errors or editorial corrections are noted; however, any comments not related to these specific changes will be evaluated during the next routine review of NUREG–1556, Volume 9. Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 26th day of July, 2007. For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Dennis K. Rathbun, Director, Division of Intergovernmental, Liaison and Rulemaking, Office of Federal and State Materials, and Environmental Management Programs. [FR Doc.

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) proposes to authorize each Federal agency that receives applications for Federal financial assistance to add a field for the applicant’s Dun and Bradstreet Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number to application forms previously approved by OMB. The intent of authorizing agencies to add the field without additional OMB approval is to enable the agencies to require applicants other than individual persons to provide DUNS numbers for all applications submitted on or after October 1, 2007. This proposal thereby would update the policy in the OMB directive issued on June 27, 2003 [68 FR 38403], ‘‘Use of a Universal Identifier by Grant Applicants.’’ That directive authorized agencies to add the DUNS number as a required field for applications leading to the award of two specific forms of Federal financial assistance: Grants and cooperative agreements. This proposed update would broaden the directive’s effect to all forms of Federal financial assistance covered by the Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act (the ‘‘Act’’) including grants, subgrants, loans, awards, cooperative agreements, and other forms of financial assistance. The reason for the proposed update is that the DUNS number will be used as the unique identifier for recipient entities that is required by the Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act of 2006 (Pub. L. 109– 282).

ACTION: Notice of effective date. mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES AGENCY: SUMMARY: In Proclamation 8111 of February 28, 2007, the President modified the rules of origin for certain goods of Mexico under the North American Free Trade Agreement (the ‘‘NAFTA’’) incorporated in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (the ‘‘HTS’’). The proclamation stated that the modifications would be effective on the date to be announced in the Federal Register by the United States Trade Representative (the ‘‘USTR’’) and would apply to goods of Mexico that are entered, or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption, on or after the date indicated in the proclamation. The purpose of this notice is to announce that the effective date for the modifications is July 30, 2007. The changes were printed in the Federal Register of March 6, 2007 (72 FR 10028).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Presidential Proclamation 6641 of December 15, 1993 implemented the North American Free Trade Agreement (the ‘‘NAFTA’’) with respect to the United States and, pursuant to the North American Free Trade Agreement VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:42 Aug 01, 2007 Jkt 211001 Implementation Act (Pub. L. 103–182) (the ‘‘NAFTA Implementation Act’’), incorporated in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (the ‘‘HTS’’) the tariff modifications and rules of origin necessary or appropriate to carry out the NAFTA. Section 202 of the NAFTA Implementation Act (19 U.S.C. 3332) provides rules for determining whether goods imported into the United States originate in the territory of a NAFTA party and thus are eligible for the tariff and other treatment contemplated under the NAFTA. Section 202(q) of the NAFTA Implementation Act (19 U.S.C. 3332(q)) authorizes the President to proclaim, as a part of the HTS, the rules of origin set out in the NAFTA and to proclaim modifications to such previously proclaimed rules of origin, subject to the consultation and layover requirements of section 103(a) of the NAFTA Implementation Act (19 U.S.C. 3313(a)). The President determined that the modifications to the HTS contained in Proclamation 8811 pursuant to sections 201 and 202 of the NAFTA Implementation Act were appropriate and proclaimed such changes with respect to goods of Mexico entered, or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption, on or after the date indicated in the Annex to that Proclamation. The President decided that the effective date of the modifications shall be announced by the United States Trade Representative (USTR). On March 15, 2007, the government of Mexico obtained the necessary authorization to implement the rule of origin changes with respect to goods of the United States. Subsequently, officials from the government of Mexico and the government of the United States agreed to implement these changes with respect to each other’s eligible goods, effective July 30, 2007. 42445 STATUS: August 7–12:30 p.m.—Closed; August 8–8:30 a.m.—Open; August 8– 10:30 a.m.—Closed.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) 
proposes to authorize each Federal agency that receives applications 
for Federal financial assistance to add a field for the applicant's Dun

agencies to add the field without additional OMB approval is to enable 
the agencies to require applicants other than individual persons to

directive issued on June 27, 2003 [68 FR 38403], ``Use of a Universal 
Identifier by Grant Applicants.'' That directive authorized agencies to 
add the DUNS number as a required field for applications leading to the 
award of two specific forms of Federal financial assistance: Grants and

awards. The unique identifier of the recipient entity is one of the 
data elements that the Act requires for each award. Note that the

Regulations Council (Councils) are addressing the Federal Funding 
Accountability and Transparency Act requirements for contracts, 
subcontracts, purchase orders, task orders and delivery orders under
