Download as PDF 22368 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 81 / Wednesday, April 28, 2010 / Notices sroberts on DSKD5P82C1PROD with PROPOSALS insoluble impurities for lampante oil. Because this was an oversight, Table III is revised to show that these analyses are ‘‘Not Applicable’’ for ‘‘moisture and volatile matter’’ and ‘‘insoluble impurities in light petroleum.’’ (30) Comment: A method of analysis for preparation of methyl esters should accompany the methods of analysis for fatty acid composition. AMS agrees and added the suggested method to the list of methods of analysis. AMS also found that pesticide residue tests were included in the revised 2006 IOC trade standards so this test was added to the U.S. grade standards. (31) Comment: For future consideration: i. Consider defining limits for premium extra virgin olive oil. ii. Set new limits for fatty acid composition, desmethylsterol, total sterol, saturated fatty acid in the two position in triglycerides and unsaponifiable matter. iii. Set stricter limits for free fatty acid as oleic, peroxide value, absorbency in UV. iv. Research future analysis for inclusion in the standard. AMS continually reviews its grade standards. AMS facilitates the fair and efficient marketing of agricultural products by promulgating voluntary official grade standards. AMS develops, revises, suspends, or terminates the official grade standards under procedures that allow for input by interested parties. As new science becomes available or the IOC and Codex standards are revised, AMS will consider updating the grade standards as appropriate. AMS believes that the revised grade standards would facilitate the marketing of olive oil and olive-pomace oil, better reflect terms that are currently in use in the marketplace, provide definitions for olive oil and olive-pomace oil, promote truth in labeling, and provide a basis for enforcement by State and Federal agencies if these products are mislabeled. The official grades of olive oil and olive-pomace oil in these standards are covered by the procedures set forth in the Regulations Governing the Inspection and Certification for Processed Fruits and Vegetables, Processed Products Thereof and Certain Other Processed Food Products (7 CFR 52.1–52.83). The revised U.S. Standards for Grades of Olive Oil and Olive-Pomace Oil will become effective 180 days after publication of this notice in the Federal Register to allow sufficient time to implement the standards.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    The Coastal Zone Management Act of 1972 (CZMA; 16 U.S.C. 1461 et 
seq.) provides for the designation of estuarine research reserves 
representative of various regions and estuarine types in the United 
States to provide opportunities for long-term research, education and 
interpretation. During the site selection and designation process, 
information is collected from states in order to prepare a management 
plan and environmental impact statement. Designated reserves apply 
annually for operations funds by submitting a work plan; subsequently 
progress reports are required every six months for the duration of the 
award. Each reserve compiles an ecological characterization or site 
profile to describe the biological and physical environment of the 
reserve, research to date and research gaps. A competitive research 
program provides an opportunity for two researchers to focus their work 
at each reserve. The reserves are evaluated every three years, per 
section 312 of the Act, and revise their management plans every five 
years. This information is required to ensure that reserves are 
adhering to regulations and that the purpose for which they were 
designated is maintained.

II. Method of Collection
