SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has issued revisions to existing guides in the agency’s ‘‘Regulatory Guide’’ series. This series was developed to describe and make available to the public information such as methods that are acceptable to the NRC staff for implementing specific parts of the agency’s regulations, techniques that the staff uses in evaluating specific problems or postulated accidents, and data that the staff needs in its review of applications for permits and licenses. Revision 34 of Regulatory Guide 1.84, ‘‘Design, Fabrication, and Materials Code Case Acceptability, ASME Section III,’’ lists all Section III Code Cases that the NRC has approved for use. For Revision 34 of the guide, the NRC staff reviewed the Section III Code Cases listed in Supplements 7–12 to the 2001 Edition of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Boiler and Pressure Vessel (BPV) Code and Supplement 1 to the 2004 Edition. Appendix A to this guide lists the supplements reviewed, the applicable edition, and the date on which each supplement was approved by the ASME Board on Nuclear Codes and Standards. Appendix B is a list of the Section III Code Cases addressed in the seven supplements. Finally, Appendix C is a current list of all Section III Code Cases. In October 2006, the NRC published a draft of this guide as Draft Regulatory Guide (DG)–1133. The public comment period closed on January 2, 2007. The staff’s responses to the public comments are located in the NRC’s Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS), Accession Number ML072080205. For Revision 15 of Regulatory Guide 1.147, ‘‘Inservice Inspection Code Case Acceptability, ASME Section XI, Division I,’’ the NRC staff reviewed the Section XI Code Cases listed in Supplements 7–12 to the 2001 Edition, and Supplement 1 to the 2004 Edition of the ASME BPV Code.

Revision 2 of Regulatory Guide 1.193, ‘‘ASME Code Cases Not Approved for Use,’’ lists the code cases that the NRC determined unacceptable for use on a generic basis. Licensees may request NRC approval to implement one or more of the code cases listed in Revision 2 of Regulatory Guide 1.193, as provided in 10 CFR 50.55a(a)(3), which permits the use of alternatives to the code requirements referenced in 10 CFR 50.55a, provided the proposed alternatives result in an acceptable level of quality and safety. To do so licensees must submit a plant-specific request that addresses the NRC’s concerns about the code case at issue. On May 19, 2006, the NRC published a draft of this guide as DG–1135. The public comment period closed on July 14, 2006, and no comments were received. However, changes made to Regulatory Guides 1.84 and 1.147 resulted in changes to Regulatory Guide 1.193.

ACTION: Notice and request for public comment. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Trade Policy Staff Committee (TPSC) is seeking the views of interested parties on the operation of the Caribbean Basin Economic Recovery Act (CBERA), as amended by the Caribbean Basin Trade Partnership Act (CBTPA) (19 U.S.C. 2701 et seq.). Section 212(f) of the CBERA, as amended, requires the President to submit a report to Congress regarding the operation of the CBERA and CBTPA (together commonly referred to as the Caribbean Basin Initiative, or CBI) on or before December 31, 2001, and every two years thereafter. The TPSC invites written comments concerning the operation of the CBI, including comments on the performance of each CBERA and CBTPA beneficiary country, as the case may be, under the criteria described in sections 212(b), 212(c), and 213(b)(5)(B) of the CBERA, as amended. This information will be used in the preparation of a report to the U.S. Congress on the operation of the program. DATES: Public comments are due at USTR no later than 5 p.m., November 16, 2007. ADDRESSES: Submissions by electronic mail: FR0803@ustr.eop.gov. Submissions by facsimile: Kent Shigetomi, Office of the Americas, at (202) 395–9675. The public is strongly encouraged to submit documents electronically rather than by facsimile. See requirements for submissions below. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Kent Shigetomi, Office of the Americas, Office of the United States Trade Representative, 600 17th Street, NW., Room 523, Washington, DC 20508. The telephone number is (202) 395–3412. PO 00000 Frm 00080 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Interested parties are invited to submit comments on any aspect of the program’s operation, including the performance of CBERA and CBTPA beneficiary countries, as the case may be, under the criteria described in sections 212(b), 212(c), and 213(b)(5)(B) of the CBERA, as amended, and provided below. Other issues to be examined in this report include: the CBI’s effect on the volume and composition of trade and investment between the United States and the Caribbean Basin beneficiary countries; and its effect in advancing U.S. trade policy goals as set forth in the CBTPA. The following countries are both CBERA and CBTPA beneficiary countries: Barbados, Belize, Costa Rica, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, Panama, Saint Lucia, and Trinidad and Tobago. Antigua and Barbuda, Aruba, The Bahamas, British Virgin Islands, Dominica, Grenada, Montserrat, Netherlands Antilles, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines currently receive benefits only under CBERA. The Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua ceased to be designated as beneficiary countries when the Dominican Republic—Central America—United States Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA–DR) entered into force for each country. The CAFTA–DR entered info for El Salvador on March 1, 2006; for Honduras on April 1, 2006; for Nicaragua on April 1, 2006; for Guatemala on July 1, 2006; and for the Dominican Republic on March 1, 2007. Comments on these five former beneficiary countries should pertain to the time period when each country was still a beneficiary country. When the CAFTA-DR enters into force for Costa Rica, that country will cease to be designated as a CBERA and CBTPA beneficiary country. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Eligibility Criteria for CBTPA Beneficiary Countries (Section 213(b)(5)(B) of CBERA) In determining whether to designate a country as a CBTPA beneficiary country, the President must take into account the criteria contained in sections 212(b) and (c) of CBERA, and other appropriate criteria, including the following: (1) Whether the beneficiary country has demonstrated a commitment to undertake its obligations under the WTO under or ahead of schedule and participate in negotiations toward the completion of the FTAA or another free trade agreement. (2) The extent to which the country provides protection of intellectual E:\FR\FM\25OCN1.SGM 25OCN1
