Shipping Coordinating Committee; Notice of Committee Meeting [FR Doc. 2013–01990 Filed 1–29–13; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4710–05–P DEPARTMENT OF STATE [Public Notice 8169] Easing the Ban on Imports From Burma The Deputy Secretary of State has determined, pursuant to authority delegated by the Secretary of State, that it is in the national interests of the United States to waive the prohibitions described in section 3(a) of the Burmese Freedom and Democracy Act of 2003 (Pub. L. 108–61), as amended (‘‘BFDA’’), which requires the President to prohibit the importation of any article that is a product of Burma into the United States, and which the President implemented in section 3 of Executive Order 13310 (July 28, 2003). In conjunction with this waiver determination, the Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control issued General License (No. 18) on November 16, 2012 authorizing imports into the United States of any article that is a product of Burma, subject to limitations set forth therein. This step is in the national interest of the United States because it supports those in the Burmese government that have instituted important reforms since early 2011 and encourages the government to make further progress. The waiver of the import ban responds to the Government of Burma’s continued reforms and efforts to address U.S. core concerns, including the release of political prisoners, and other steps on human rights and national reconciliation.

Gonzalez, Management Analyst, Business Operations Group, ANG–A12, Federal Aviation Administration. This notice announces a public teleconference to share with the public results of recent FAA sponsored testing of nitrous oxide (N2O) characteristics. Nitrous oxide is an important oxidizer to developers of some commercial reusable launch vehicles. A potential hazard in nitrous oxide storage and handling is a Boiling Liquid Expanding Vapor Explosion (BLEVE), which results from a sudden loss of pressure in a tank containing nitrous oxide stored under pressure above its normal boiling point. The FAA’s Office of Commercial Space Transportation sponsored tests of liquid-phase nitrous oxide at NASA’s White Sands Test Facility to empirically determine the superheat limit temperature for nitrous oxide, and to demonstrate that a BLEVE would not occur if the liquid is maintained at temperatures below this superheat limit temperature. Meeting Information: The teleconference is scheduled for Thursday, February 28, 2013, from 1:00–2:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. The presentation and call-in number will be posted one week in advance at http://www.ast.faa.gov/.
