Renewal of Approved Information Collection, OMB Control Number 1004-0168, 34150-34151 [2010-14507]

Download as PDF 34150 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 115 / Wednesday, June 16, 2010 / Notices through the end of the period prescribed in individual certifications. After the end of that transition period, entities seeking certification to NFPA 1600 must use the 2010 version. Subsequent versions of the two remaining standards and other standards DHS may adopt will operate on cycles that may not be uniform. DHS will review subsequent versions of already adopted standards for conformity to the target criteria and suitability for the program. C. Discussion of Comments Received in Response to the Oct. 2009 Notice of Intent DHS received a total of 122 comments in response to the October 2009 Federal Register Notice. Of that number, 100 comments were made in regard to the intention of DHS to adopt the three identified standards. The remaining comments concerned some other aspect of the PS–Prep Program and will be dealt with in future communications on relevant aspects of the PS–Prep Program. The vast majority of comments related to three the standards supported DHS adoption of one or more of the standards. The largest number of comments stating any opposition to the adoption of any of the three identified standards related to BS 25999. Those comments were based on the fact that the British Standards Institution, under the auspices of which the standard was developed, was not a United States entity. That is a fact; however, DHS believes that the standard is comprehensive, meets the PS–Prep Target criteria, and satisfies the needs of the PS–Prep Program. Research by DHS indicates that several United States corporations have implemented or are implementing BS 25999. DHS further believes that the national identity of the standard setting organization is not inherently relevant to the viability of any candidate PS–Prep standard and, as indicated, has adopted BS 25999. IV. Next Steps sroberts on DSKD5P82C1PROD with NOTICES A. Initiation of the PS–Prep Certification Process Once the standards are announced, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI)—American Society for Quality (ASQ) National Accreditation Board (ANAB), the PS–Prep accrediting body, will finalize its process for accrediting third party certifying entities for the PS–Prep Program. Upon that finalization, DHS expects that preparation and accreditation of certifying entities will take an additional two to four months. DHS will VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:19 Jun 15, 2010 Jkt 220001 announce the initiation of the availability of the PS–Prep Program certification process on the PS–Prep Program Web site. B. Critical Infrastructure and Key Resources (CIKR) Sector-Specific Issues DHS has made clear that it does not intend that the PS–Prep Program will create a need for a duplication of requirements for entities that wish to participate. DHS will attempt to identify regulations, guidelines, or sector codes of practice that meet portions of adopted standards and that could form the basis for compliance with PS–Prep adopted standards. To this end, the DHS Office of Infrastructure Protection (IP) will collaborate with the CIKR sectors and their respective Sector Coordinating Councils to identify such existing sector activities. IP will work with the individual CIKR sectors to develop a framework containing the identified sector-specific considerations and activities that may be used in the PS–Prep certification processes. V. Small Business Consideration In 6 U.S.C. 321m(b)(2)(D), DHS is required to ‘‘establish separate classifications and methods of certification for small business concerns.’’ The definition of ‘‘small business concerns’’ is that of the Small Business Act at 15 U.S.C. 632. Both previous PS–Prep Federal Register Notices have contained extensive discussions of the DHS approach to best reflect the interests of small businesses, minimize any burden associated with certification for the PS–Prep Program, and achieve the purposes of the PS– Prep Program. DHS continues to seek comments from the public and, particularly, small businesses on specific tools and means for certification of small business under the PS–Prep Program. Dated: June 10, 2010. W.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The 7,021-acre Modoc National Wildlife Refuge is located southeast of Alturas, California. The Refuge was established in 1960 under the Migratory Bird Conservation Act (16 U.S.C. 715d) and the Refuge Recreation Act (16 U.S.C. 460k–460 K.4). Lands within the Refuge have been set aside for use as an inviolate sanctuary, and other management purposes, for migratory birds, for incidental fish and wildlifeoriented recreational development, for the protection of natural resources, and for the conservation of endangered species or threatened species. Located near the confluence of the north and south forks of the Pit River, the Refuge conserves, protects, and manages a mosaic of freshwater lakes and ponds, seasonal wetlands, irrigated meadows, grasslands, and sagebrush/ juniper upland habitats. These habitats provide important resting, feeding, and nesting areas for ducks, geese, and other migratory birds, including the greater sandhill crane. We announce our decision and the availability of the FONSI for the final CCP in accordance with National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) (40 CFR 1506.6(b)) requirements. We completed a thorough analysis of impacts on the human environment, which we included in the EA that accompanied the draft CCP. The National Wildlife Refuge System Administration Act of 1966 (16 U.S.C. 668dd–668ee) (Administration Act), as amended by the National Wildlife Refuge System Improvement Act of 1997, requires us to develop a CCP for each national wildlife refuge. The purpose for developing a CCP is to provide refuge managers with a 15-year plan for achieving refuge purposes and contributing toward the mission of the National Wildlife Refuge System, consistent with sound principles of fish and wildlife management, conservation, legal mandates, and our policies. In addition to outlining broad management direction on conserving wildlife and their habitats, CCPs identify wildlifedependent recreational opportunities available to the public, including opportunities for hunting, fishing, wildlife observation and photography, and environmental education and E:\FR\FM\16JNN1.SGM 16JNN1
