E9–30866 Filed 12–28–09; 8:45 am] List of Subjects in 14 CFR Part 71 AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), DOT. ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM). The Proposal This action proposes to amend Title 14, Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR), Part 71 by adding additional Class E airspace extending upward from 700 feet above the surface for SIAPs operations at Moore County Airport, Dumas, TX. Adjustment to the geographic coordinates would be made in accordance with the FAA’s National Aeronautical Charting Office. Controlled airspace is needed for the safety and management of IFR operations at the airport. Class E airspace areas are published in Paragraph 6005 of FAA Order 7400.9T, dated August 27, 2009, and effective September 15, 2009, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E airspace designation listed in this document would be published subsequently in the Order. The FAA has determined that this proposed regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. It, therefore, (1) is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034; February 26, 1979); and (3) does not warrant preparation of a Regulatory Evaluation as the anticipated impact is so minimal. Since this is a routine matter that will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this rule, when promulgated, will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

The Food and Drug Administration Amendments Act of 2007 (FDAAA) requires that FDA update its informed consent regulations to require that the informed consent documents and processes for certain clinical investigations include a statement that clinical trial information for such investigations has been or will be submitted for inclusion in the clinical trial registry databank. DATES: Submit written or electronic comments on the proposed rule by March 1, 2010.

Section 801(b)(3)(A) of FDAAA also amends section 505(i) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the act) (21 U.S.C. 355(i)) to require that the Secretary update FDA’s informed consent regulations to require that informed consent documents and processes for the clinical investigations in question include a statement that clinical trial information has been or will be submitted to this registry databank. The current informed consent regulations do not include provisions addressing the clinical trial registry databank.

I. Introduction FDAAA was enacted on September 27, 2007. Section 801 of FDAAA amends the Public Health Service (PHS) Act to require the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), acting through the Director of NIH, to expand the clinical trial registry databank established under section 113 of the 1997 Food and Drug Administration Modernization Act (FDAMA) (Public Law 105–115, currently codified at 42 U.S.C. 282(i)) and to ensure that the databank is made publicly available through the Internet. Section 801 provides for the expansion of the registry databank through requiring investigators and sponsors to submit certain information about any applicable clinical trial to NIH/NLM for inclusion in the clinical trial registry databank. Section 801’s requirements apply to applicable device clinical trials or applicable drug clinical trials, as defined in the statute. Under FDAAA, applicable drug clinical trials include clinical trials for biological products regulated under section 351 of the PHS II. Background FDA has various regulations that govern the conduct of clinical investigations. The informed consent regulations provide protection to subjects in clinical investigations conducted under FDA’s jurisdiction. (See part 50.) These informed consent regulations are based on ethics codes such as the Nuremberg Code (Ref. 1), the Declaration of Helsinki (Ref. 2), the National Research Act (Ref. 3), and the Belmont Report (Ref. 4); these codes embody the basic ethical principles relevant to the protection of human research subjects. (See 60 FR 49086, September 21, 1995, and 44 FR 47713, August 14, 1979, for a detailed discussion of the ethical basis for the agency’s regulations governing human subject protection.) These principles identify standards to protect participants from unethical practices, allow subjects to have equal access to, opportunity to participate in, and the ability to withdraw from clinical trials voluntarily, educate participants so they make autonomous decisions, and PO 00000 Frm 00031 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 E:\FR\FM\29DEP1.SGM 29DEP1

The Proposal

    The FAA is proposing an amendment to Title 14 Code of Federal 
Regulations (14 CFR) part 71 by modifying Class E airspace at Point 
Mugu NAWS, Oxnard, CA. Additional controlled airspace is necessary to 
accommodate the vectoring of aircraft flying en route, in and out of 
the Los Angeles ARTCC's airspace area. This action would enhance the 
safety and management of aircraft operations in Los Angeles ARTCC's 
airspace.
    Class E airspace designations are published in paragraph 6005 of 
FAA Order 7400.9T, signed August 27, 2009, and effective September 15, 
2009, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1. The Class E 
airspace designation listed in this document will be published 
subsequently in this Order.
    The FAA has determined that this proposed regulation only involves 
an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and 
routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. 
Therefore, this proposed regulation (1) is not a ``significant 
regulatory action'' under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a 
``significant rule'' under DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 
FR 11034; February 26, 1979); and (3) does not warrant preparation of a 
regulatory evaluation as the anticipated impact is so minimal. Since 
this is a routine matter that will only affect air traffic procedures 
and air navigation, it is certified that this proposed rule, when 
promulgated, would not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the 
Regulatory Flexibility Act.
    The FAA's authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is 
found in Title 49 of the U.S. Code. Subtitle 1, section 106, describes 
the authority for the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII, Aviation 
Programs, describes in more detail the scope of the agency's authority. 
This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described in 
subtitle VII, part A, subpart I, section 40103. Under that section, the 
FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to assign the use of the 
airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient 
use of airspace.
    This regulation is within the scope of that authority as it 
establishes additional controlled airspace at Point Mugu NAWS, Oxnard, 
CA.
