E-mail is now included as a means to submit the target area designations. Under the Theft Prevention Standard, manufacturers of high theft passenger motor vehicle lines subject to parts marking, and manufacturers of replacement parts designed for high theft lines, must submit designation of target areas for identifying numbers to be marked on each major part and symbols to be marked on each major replacement part. This rulemaking makes no substantive changes to the Theft Prevention Standard. DATES: This final rule becomes effective June 1, 2011. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Carlita Ballard, NHTSA, 1200 New Jersey Ave., SE., Rm. W43–439, NVS– 131, Washington, DC 20590. Ms. Ballard’s telephone number is: (202) 366–0846. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 49 CFR Part 541, Federal Motor Vehicle Theft Prevention Standard, specifies that major parts 1 and major replacement parts of motor vehicles subject to the standard must be marked in accordance with Section 541.5, for passenger motor vehicles, and Section 541.6 for replacement parts. The standard specifies that each manufacturer that is the original producer that installs or assembles the covered major parts on a line shall designate a target area for the identifying numbers to be marked on each major part. For replacement parts, the standard specifies that each manufacturer that is the original producer or assembler of the vehicle for which the replacement part is designed shall designate a target area for the identifying symbols to be marked on each replacement part for a major part. At present, Part 541 specifies that designation of target areas is to be submitted to: Administrator, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 400 Seventh Street, SW., Washington, DC 20590. NHTSA has moved, and this address is no longer applicable. This technical amendment updates NHTSA’s address. In addition, to facilitate timely release of target area information, and to maximize use of electronic means, the target area information henceforth may be sent to the Docket Management In this technical amendment, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) updates the address for submission, and the procedure to submit designation of target areas on high theft major parts of 1 Each of the following parts, if present on a motor vehicle: engine; transmission; right front fender; left front fender; hood; right front door; left front door; right rear door; left rear door; sliding or cargo door(s); front bumper; rear bumper; right rear quarter panel (passenger cars); left rear quarter panel (passenger cars); right side assembly (MPVs); left side assembly (MPVs); pickup box and/or cargo box (LDTs); rear door(s) (both doors in case of double doors), decklid, tailgate, or hatchback, whichever is present. benefit a CA in any manner that is based upon the number of VRS minutes or calls that the CA relays, either individually or as part of a group.

Through this technical amendment, manufacturers will have several options when providing the target area information: electronic means through the portal http://www.regulations.gov; paper copies (via US mail, private courier or hand delivery) to Docket Management at 1200 New Jersey Avenue, SE., (NHTSA’s new address); or faxing the information. Through these new means, it is anticipated that the public will be able to view target area information much more quickly than was the case in the past. Because the information may go directly to a publicly reviewable docket, (i.e., NHTSA–2009–0069), NHTSA does not advise that manufacturers send any information for which a manufacturer wishes to assert confidential treatment to Docket Management or to http:// www.regulations.gov. In the event that a manufacturer wishes the target location data to be treated as confidential information prior to the release of a new model, it should submit the theft area data to NHTSA’s Office of the Chief Counsel and request confidential treatment as set forth in 49 CFR Part 512 Confidential Business Information. Because confidential target location data will become public when a new model is released for sale, sections 541.5(e)(2) and 541.6(e)(3) also require submission of the target location data within seven days after the information has been made public or the new vehicle line has been released for sale to the public, whichever comes first. This change will not make any substantive changes to the Theft Prevention Standard and will not impose any additional substantive requirements or burdens on manufacturers. Therefore, NHTSA finds for good cause that a notice of proposed rulemaking and opportunity for comment on these amendments are not necessary. In addition, this final rule will change the address to which manufacturers will provide target location data, but will have no effect on the collection of information burden associated with the Theft Prevention Standard (See OMB Clearance No. 2127–0539 Procedure for Selecting Lines to be Covered by the Theft Prevention Standard, expiration date: 6/30/2011).

Regulations governing fishing by U.S. vessels in accordance with the FMP appear at subpart H of 50 CFR parts 600 and 679. The B season apportionment of the 2011 Pacific cod total allowable catch (TAC) specified for vessels using jig gear in the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands management area (BSAI) is 570 metric tons (mt) for the period 1200 hrs, A.l.t., April 30, 2011, through 1200 hrs, A.l.t., August 31, 2011, as established by the final 2011 and 2012 harvest specifications for groundfish in the BSAI (76 FR 11139, March 1, 2011). The Administrator, Alaska Region, NMFS, has determined that jig vessels will not be able to harvest 470 mt of the B season apportionment of the 2011 Pacific cod TAC allocated to those vessels under § 679.20(a)(7)(ii)(A)(1). Therefore, in accordance with § 679.20(a)(7)(iii)(A), NMFS apportions 470 mt of Pacific cod from the B season jig gear apportionment to catcher vessels less than 60 feet LOA using hook-andline or pot gear.

Federal Motor Vehicle Theft Prevention Standard

AGENCY: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, DOT.

ACTION: Final rule; technical amendment.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: In this technical amendment, the National Highway Traffic 
Safety Administration (NHTSA) updates the address for submission, and 
the procedure to submit designation of target areas on high theft major 
parts of motor vehicles. E-mail is now included as a means to submit 
the target area designations. Under the Theft Prevention Standard, 
manufacturers of high theft passenger motor vehicle lines subject to 
parts marking, and manufacturers of replacement parts designed for high 
theft lines, must submit designation of target areas for identifying 
numbers to be marked on each major part and symbols to be marked on 
each major replacement part. This rulemaking makes no substantive 
changes to the Theft Prevention Standard.

DATES: This final rule becomes effective June 1, 2011.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Carlita Ballard, NHTSA, 1200 New 
Jersey Ave., SE., Rm. W43-439, NVS-131, Washington, DC 20590. Ms. 
Ballard's telephone number is: (202) 366-0846.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 49 CFR Part 541, Federal Motor Vehicle Theft 
Prevention Standard, specifies that major parts \1\ and major 
replacement parts of motor vehicles subject to the standard must be 
marked in accordance with Section 541.5, for passenger motor vehicles, 
and Section 541.6 for replacement parts. The standard specifies that 
each manufacturer that is the original producer that installs or 
assembles the covered major parts on a line shall designate a target 
area for the identifying numbers to be marked on each major part. For 
replacement parts, the standard specifies that each manufacturer that 
is the original producer or assembler of the vehicle for which the 
replacement part is designed shall designate a target area for the 
identifying symbols to be marked on each replacement part for a major 
part.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ Each of the following parts, if present on a motor vehicle: 
engine; transmission; right front fender; left front fender; hood; 
right front door; left front door; right rear door; left rear door; 
sliding or cargo door(s); front bumper; rear bumper; right rear 
quarter panel (passenger cars); left rear quarter panel (passenger 
cars); right side assembly (MPVs); left side assembly (MPVs); pickup 
box and/or cargo box (LDTs); rear door(s) (both doors in case of 
double doors), decklid, tailgate, or hatchback, whichever is 
present.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    At present, Part 541 specifies that designation of target areas is 
to be submitted to: Administrator, National Highway Traffic Safety 
Administration, 400 Seventh Street, SW., Washington, DC 20590. NHTSA 
has moved, and this address is no longer applicable. This technical 
amendment updates NHTSA's address. In addition, to facilitate timely 
release of target area information, and to maximize use of electronic 
means, the target area information henceforth may be sent to the Docket 
Management Facility (Docket No. NHTSA-2009-0069) which is accessible 
at: http://www.regulations.gov. Through this technical amendment, 
manufacturers will have several options when providing the target area 
information: electronic means through the portal http://www.regulations.gov; paper copies (via US mail, private courier or hand 
delivery) to Docket Management at 1200 New Jersey Avenue, SE., (NHTSA's 
new address); or faxing the information.
    Through these new means, it is anticipated that the public will be 
able to view target area information much more quickly than was the 
case in the past. Because the information may go directly to a publicly 
reviewable docket, (i.e., NHTSA-2009-0069), NHTSA does not advise that 
manufacturers send any information for which a manufacturer wishes to 
assert confidential treatment to Docket Management or to http://www.regulations.gov. In the event that a manufacturer wishes the target 
location data to be treated as confidential information prior to the 
release of a new model, it should submit the theft area data to NHTSA's 
Office of the Chief Counsel and request confidential treatment as set 
forth in 49 CFR Part 512 Confidential Business Information. Because 
confidential target location data will become public when a new model 
is released for sale, sections 541.5(e)(2) and 541.6(e)(3) also require 
submission of the target location data within seven days after the 
information has been made public or the new vehicle line has been 
released for sale to the public, whichever comes first.
    This change will not make any substantive changes to the Theft 
Prevention Standard and will not impose any additional substantive 
requirements or burdens on manufacturers. Therefore, NHTSA finds for 
good cause that a notice of proposed rulemaking and opportunity for 
comment on these amendments are not necessary. In addition, this final 
rule will change the address to which manufacturers will provide target 
location data, but will have no effect on the collection of information 
burden associated with the Theft Prevention Standard (See OMB Clearance 
No. 2127-0539 Procedure for Selecting Lines to be Covered by the Theft 
Prevention Standard, expiration date: 6/30/2011).
