Draft Regulatory Guide: Issuance, Availability, 11288-11289 [2011-4558]

Download as PDF 11288 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 40 / Tuesday, March 1, 2011 / Notices jlentini on DSKJ8SOYB1PROD with NOTICES Accordingly, as in the past, at least 95% of the 2005–2008 Musical Works Funds is clearly not in controversy, and a partial distribution of this amount to the Settling Parties is appropriate and warranted at this time.’’ Id. We do not agree that Section 801(b)(3)(A) gives us the discretion to determine that 95% of the funds at issue in this matter are not in controversy based on the Settling Claimants’ representations that nonsettling claimants were awarded less than five percent of the funds in prior proceedings. Moreover, the Settling Claimants chose not to serve all of the claimants and therefore those claimants were given no opportunity to comment on whether the Settling Claimants’ assertions with respect to a controversy are accurate. In the absence of persuasive evidence that no controversy exists with respect to the funds that the Settling Claimants request, we cannot make the requisite finding under Section 801(b)(3)(A) that no controversy exists with respect to the requested funds. Nevertheless, we do have authority under Section 801(b)(3)(C) of the Copyright Act to authorize partial distributions if, after publication in the Federal Register, we determine that no claimant entitled to receive such fees has stated a reasonable objection to the partial distribution and the Settling Claimants requesting the partial distribution agree, among other things, to sign an agreement obligating them to return any excess amounts to the extent necessary to comply with the final determination on the distribution of the funds. See 17 U.S.C. 801(b)(3)(C). Therefore, we seek comments from any claimant entitled to receive royalties from the 2005–2008 DART Musical Works Funds regarding whether there are any reasonable objections to a partial distribution of 95% of the 2005–2008 Musical Works Funds to the Settling Claimants. Moreover, we request comments from the Settling Claimants regarding whether they are willing to make the representations required for a partial distribution pursuant to Section 801(b)(3)(C) of the Copyright Act. The Motion of the Settling Claimants for Partial Distribution is posted on the Copyright Royalty Board Web site at http://www.loc.gov/crb. Dated: February 24, 2011.

Introduction The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing for public comment a draft guide in the agency’s ‘‘Regulatory Guide’’ series. This series was developed to describe and make available to the public such information as methods that are acceptable to the NRC staff for implementing specific parts of the NRC’s regulations, techniques that the NRC staff uses in evaluating specific problems or postulated accidents, and data that the NRC staff needs in its review of applications for permits and licenses. The draft regulatory guide (DG), entitled, ‘‘Leakage Tests on Packages for Shipment of Radioactive Materials’’ is temporarily identified by its task number, DG–7008, which should be mentioned in all related correspondence. DG–7008 is proposed Revision 1 of Regulatory Guide 7.4, dated June 1975. This guide describes an approach that the NRC staff considers acceptable for meeting the containment criteria for Type B packages in Title 10, Section 71.51, ‘‘Additional Requirements for Type B Packages,’’ of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR 71.51). The regulations at 10 CFR 71.51 require licensees to ensure that Type B packages, following tests for normal conditions of transport and hypothetical accident conditions, meet the containment criteria to minimize radioactive contamination and dose rates to the public. The NRC staff developed and published this guidance to help licensees meet these objectives, ensure package integrity, and minimize the distribution of contamination to the environment. This regulatory guide endorses the methods and procedures developed by the Standards Committee on Packaging E:\FR\FM\01MRN1.SGM 01MRN1 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 40 / Tuesday, March 1, 2011 / Notices and Transportation of Radioactive and Nonnuclear Hazardous Materials, N14, Subcommittee of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) in ANSI N14.5–1997, ‘‘Radioactive Materials— Leakage Tests on Packages for Shipment,’’ issued 1997, as a process that the NRC staff considers acceptable for meeting the regulatory requirements. jlentini on DSKJ8SOYB1PROD with NOTICES II.

    The draft regulatory guide (DG), entitled, ``Leakage Tests on 
Packages for Shipment of Radioactive Materials'' is temporarily 
identified by its task number, DG-7008, which should be mentioned in
