ACTION: Notice of Approval and Availability for the Revised Management Plan for the North Carolina National Estuarine Research Reserve. SUMMARY: The Estuarine Reserves Division, Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management, National Ocean Service, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), U.S. Department of Commerce has approved the North Carolina National Estuarine Research Reserve Management Plan Revision. Four sites in coastal North Carolina comprise the North Carolina National Estuarine Research Reserve: Currituck Banks, Rachel Carson, Masonboro Island and Zeke’s Island. Currituck Banks, Rachel Carson and Zeke’s Island were designated in 1985, and Masonboro Island was designated in 1991, as the North Carolina National Estuarine Research Reserve pursuant to Section 315 of the Coastal Zone Management Act of 1972, as amended, 16 U.S.C. 1461. The reserve has been operating in partnership with the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources under a management plan approved in 1998. Pursuant to 15 CFR 921.33(c), a state must revise their management plan every five years. The VerDate Nov<24>2008 19:32 Sep 30, 2009 Jkt 217001 submission of this plan fulfills this requirement and sets a course for successful implementation of the goals and objectives of the reserve. An increase in the vertical placement of the program on the state organizational chart, a new administrative facility, and updated programmatic objectives are notable revisions to the 1998 approved management plan. The revised management plan outlines the administrative structure; the education, stewardship, and research goals of the reserve; and the plans for future land acquisition and facility development to support reserve operations. This management plan describes how the strengths of the reserve will focus on several areas relevant to coastal North Carolina, including coastal population increase, altered land use, storm water runoff and eutrophication, invasive species, tropical and coastal storm impacts and sea level rise. Since 1998, the reserve has added a coastal training program that delivers science-based information to key decision makers in North Carolina; has completed a site profile that characterizes the reserve; and has expanded the monitoring, stewardship and education programs. A new administrative building (2007) has been built to support the growth of reserve programs.

SUMMARY: The Estuarine Reserves Division, Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management, National Ocean Service, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), U.S. Department of Commerce has approved the Hudson River National Estuarine Research Reserve Management Plan Revision. Four sites along the Hudson River comprise the Hudson River National Estuarine Research Reserve: Piermont Marsh, Iona Island, Tivoli Bays, and Stockport Flats. The Hudson River National Estuarine Research Reserve was designated in 1982 pursuant to Section 315 of the Coastal Zone Management Act of 1972, as amended, 16 U.S.C. 1461. The reserve has been operating in partnership with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation under a management plan approved in 1993. Pursuant to 15 CFR 921.33(c), a State must revise their management plan every five years. The submission of this plan fulfills this requirement and sets a course for successful implementation of the goals and objectives of the reserve.

This management plan describes how the strengths of the reserve will focus on several areas relevant to the Hudson River, including sea level rise and other effects of climate change, development pressure, and invasive species. Since 1993, the reserve has added an estuary training program that delivers science-based information to key decision makers in New York; has completed a site profile that characterizes the reserve; and has expanded the monitoring, stewardship and education programs. A new headquarters building, the Norrie Point Environmental Center (2007), has been built to support the growth of reserve programs.

ACTION: Notice of New Privacy Act System of Records; COMMERCE/ CENSUS–12, Foreign Trade Statistics. PWALKER on DSK8KYBLC1PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Commerce) publishes this notice to announce the effective date of a Privacy Act System of Records notice entitled, COMMERCE/CENSUS–12, Foreign Trade Statistics. DATES: The system of records becomes effective on October 1, 2009. ADDRESSES: For a copy of the system of records please mail requests to: Chief Privacy Officer, Privacy Office, Room HQ–8H168, U.S. Census Bureau, Washington, DC 20233–3700. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On June 23, 2009, the Department of Commerce published and requested comments on a proposed Privacy Act System of Records notice entitled COMMERCE/CENSUS– 12, Foreign Trade Statistics. Commerce received one comment in response to this notice. The commenter recommended that the Census Bureau develop an alternative approach for filers to eliminate the public display of a filer’s Social Security Number (SSN) and Employer Identification Number (EIN), as well as discontinue collecting SSN for identification purposes during the Automated Export System (AES) registration process. In response to this comment, Commerce noted that previously pursuant to an interim agreement between the U.S. Census Bureau and the Commenter, individuals who were required to file information about exports, but who could not do so electronically through the AES, filed the required information via mail and included an AES Downtime Citation on these filings. The AES Downtime Citation could include a customer’s VerDate Nov<24>2008 19:32 Sep 30, 2009 Jkt 217001 SSN, and thus the SSN might become visible to the public. The commenter has worked the past year and a half to develop an automated collection system that allows exporters to electronically submit the required information. This system eliminates the need for the interim solution and the possible public display of SSN when the AES is down. As part of a collaborative effort with the U.S. Census Bureau, the commenter agreed it would collect the Internal Transaction Number (ITN) for those shipments that require the proof of filing citation. The ITN is the AESgenerated confirmation number the filer receives when information is accurately filed in the system. It would be assumed where no ITN is submitted, an AES filing is not required and no information would be collected. In addition, the U.S. Census Bureau has informed the commenter of its publication, on August 5, 2009 in the Federal Register, of an Interim Final Rule amending 15, CFR part 30, Foreign Trade Regulations, to eliminate the collection of SSNs for identification purposes in the AES. The rule carries out the purposes of the Privacy Act of 1974, 5 U.S.C. 552a, to ensure that the U.S. Principal Party in Interest’s (USPPI) or U.S. authorized agent’s personal information, such as its SSN, is protected. Under changes outlined in the rule, all USPPI and U.S. authorized agents who currently report an SSN when filing in the AES must instead provide an EIN or Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number, which is supplied by Dun & Bradstreet. By this notice, the Department is adopting the proposed system as final without changes effective October 1, 2009. Comments Must Be Received on or Before: 11/02/2009.
