Download as PDF 48520 ACTION: Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 183 / Wednesday, September 23, 2009 / Notices Notice. We are advising the public of our determination regarding the highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) subtype H5N1 status of Suffolk and Norfolk Counties, England, following outbreaks in 2007. Based on an evaluation of the animal health status of Suffolk and Norfolk Counties, England, which we made available to the public for review and comment through a previous notice, the Administrator has determined that the importation of live birds, poultry carcasses, parts or products of poultry carcasses, and eggs (other than hatching eggs) of poultry, game birds, and other birds from Suffolk and Norfolk Counties, England, presents a low risk of introducing HPAI H5N1 into the United States. DATES: Effective Date: This determination will be effective on October 8, 2009. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Dr. Ingrid Kotowski, Import Risk Analyst, Regionalization Evaluation Services International, National Center for Import and Export, VS, APHIS, 920 Main Campus Drive, Suite 200, Raleigh, NC 27606; (919) 855–7732. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: Background On May 7, 2009, we published in the Federal Register (74 FR 21312–21313, Docket No. APHIS–2009–0015) a notice 1 in which we announced the availability, for review and comment, of an evaluation of the animal health status of Suffolk and Norfolk Counties, England, relative to highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) subtype H5N1. In the evaluation, titled ‘‘Evaluation of the Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza H5N1 Status of Suffolk and Norfolk Counties, England’’ (January 2009), we presented the results of our evaluation of the status of HPAI H5N1 in domestic poultry in Suffolk and Norfolk Counties, England, in light of the actions taken by the United Kingdom’s (UK) animal health authorities since the outbreaks in 2007. Our evaluation concluded that the UK was able to effectively control and eradicate HPAI H5N1 in their domestic poultry populations and that animal health authorities have adequate control measures in place to rapidly identify, control, and eradicate the disease should it be reintroduced into the UK’s wild birds or domestic poultry population. 1 To view the notice, the evaluation, and the comment we received, go to https:// www.regulations.gov/fdmspublic/component/ main?main=DocketDetail&d=APHIS-2009-0015. VerDate Nov<24>2008 17:06 Sep 22, 2009 Jkt 217001 In our May 2009 notice, we stated that if after the close of the comment period we could identify no additional risk factors that would indicate that domestic poultry in Suffolk and Norfolk Counties, England, continue to be affected with HPAI H5N1, we would conclude that the importation of live birds, poultry carcasses, parts of carcasses, and eggs (other than hatching eggs) of poultry, game birds, or other birds from regions of Suffolk and Norfolk Counties, England, presents a low risk of introducing HPAI H5N1 into the United States. We solicited comments on the evaluation for 30 days ending on June 9, 2009. We received one comment by that date, from a poultry breeding and genetics firm. The commenter agreed with the findings of our assessment. Therefore we are removing our prohibition on the importation of these products from Suffolk and Norfolk Counties, England, into the United States. Specifically: • We are no longer requiring that processed poultry products from Suffolk and Norfolk Counties, England, be accompanied by a Veterinary Service import permit and government certification confirming that the products have been treated according to APHIS requirements; • We are allowing unprocessed poultry products from Suffolk and Norfolk Counties, England, to enter the United States in passenger luggage; and • We are removing restrictions regarding the regions of Suffolk and Norfolk Counties, England, from which processed poultry products may originate in order to be allowed entry into the United States in passenger luggage. However, live birds from Suffolk and Norfolk Counties, England, are still subject to the inspections at ports of entry and post-importation quarantines set forth in 9 CFR part 93, unless granted an exemption by the Administrator or destined for diagnostic purposes and accompanied by a limited permit.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On June 12, 2009, President Obama issued a Memorandum to the Heads of Executive Departments and Agencies that established an Interagency Ocean Policy Task Force, led by the Chair of the Council on Environmental Quality. That Presidential memo charged the Task Force with, within 90 days, developing recommendations that include: 1. A national policy that ensures the protection, maintenance, and restoration of the health of ocean, coastal, and Great Lakes ecosystems and resources, enhances the sustainability of ocean and coastal economies, preserves our maritime heritage, provides for adaptive management to enhance our understanding of and capacity to respond to climate change, and is coordinated with our national security and foreign policy interests. The recommendation should prioritize upholding our stewardship responsibilities and ensuring accountability for all of our actions affecting ocean, coastal, and Great Lakes resources, and be consistent with international law, including customary international law as reflected in the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. 2. A United States framework for policy coordination of efforts to improve stewardship of the oceans, our coasts, and the Great Lakes. The Task Force should review the Federal Government’s existing policy coordination framework to ensure integration and collaboration across jurisdictional lines in meeting the objectives of a national policy for the oceans, our coasts and the Great Lakes. This will include coordination with the work of the National Security Council and Homeland Security Council as they formulate and coordinate policy involving national and homeland security, including maritime security. The framework should also address specific recommendations to improve coordination and collaboration among Federal, State, tribal and local authorities, including regional governance structures. 3. An implementation strategy that identifies and prioritizes a set of objectives the United States should pursue to meet the objectives of a national policy for the oceans, our coasts, and the Great Lakes.
