In accordance with its mandate and as reaffirmed in various decisions by the Panel, the major activity of the IPCC is to prepare comprehensive and up-todate assessments of policy-relevant scientific, technical, and socioeconomic information for understanding the scientific basis of climate change, potential impacts, and options for mitigation and adaptation. The IPCC develops a comprehensive assessment spanning all the above topics approximately every six years. The First Assessment Report was completed in 1990, the Second Assessment Report in 1995, the Third Assessment Report in 2001, and the Fourth Assessment in 2007. Three working group volumes and a synthesis report comprise the Fifth Assessment Report. Working Group I assesses the scientific aspects of the climate system and climate change; Working Group II assesses the vulnerability of socio-economic and natural systems to climate change, potential negative and positive consequences, and options for adapting to it; and Working Group III assesses options for limiting greenhouse gas emissions and otherwise mitigating climate change. Procedures for the IPCC and its preparation of reports can be found at the following Web sites: http: //www.ipcc.ch/organization/ organization_review.shtml#.UEY0Lq Se7x8 http://ipcc.ch/organization/ organization_procedures.shtml. In October 2009, the IPCC approved the outline for the Working Group III contribution to the 5th Assessment Report (Working Group III Table of Contents: http://www.ipcc-wg3.de/.files/ WGIII-Outline-AR5.pdf). Authors were nominated starting in January 2010 and selected in May 2010. All IPCC reports go through two broad reviews: a ‘‘firstorder draft’’ reviewed by experts, and a ‘‘second-order draft’’ reviewed by both experts and governments. The Second Order Draft of the Working Group III contribution to the 5th Assessment Report will be available for review beginning on 25 February 2013. As part of the U.S. Government Review of the Second Order Draft of the Working Group III Contribution to the 5th Assessment Report, the U.S. Government is soliciting comments from experts in relevant fields of expertise (Again, the Table of Contents for the Working Group contribution can be viewed here: http://www.ipcc-wg3. de/.files/WGIII-Outline-AR5.pdf). Beginning on 25 February, experts may register to review the draft report at: http://review.globalchange.gov, the PO 00000 Frm 00094 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 12807 same day the draft report will be made available. To be considered for inclusion in the U.S. Government submission, comments must be received by 27 March 2013. The United States Global Change Research Program will coordinate collection and compilation of U.S. expert comments and the review of the report by a Review Committee of Federal scientists and program managers in order to develop a consolidated U.S. Government submission, which will be provided to the IPCC by April 22, 2013. Instructions for review and submission of comments are available at: http:// review.globalchange.gov. Experts may choose to provide comments directly through the IPCC’s expert review process, which occurs in parallel with the U.S. government review. More information on the IPCC’s comment process can be found at http: //www.ipcc.ch/activities/activities.shtml and http://www.ipcc.ch/pdf/ar5/review_ of_wg_contributions.pdf. To avoid duplication, reviewers who participate in the U.S. Government Review should not also submit comments directly to the IPCC Secretariat through the Expert Review process. Comments to the U.S. government review should be submitted using the Web-based system at: http:// review.globalchange.gov. This certification will be published in the Federal Register.

VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:22 Feb 22, 2013 Jkt 229001 Background The FHWA’s Buy America policy in 23 CFR 635.410 requires a domestic manufacturing process for any steel or iron products (including protective PO 00000 Frm 00095 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 coatings) that are permanently incorporated in a Federal-aid construction project. The regulation also provides for a waiver of the Buy America requirements when the application would be inconsistent with the public interest or when satisfactory quality domestic steel and iron products are not sufficiently available. This notice provides information regarding the FHWA’s finding that a Buy America waiver is appropriate to use (1) Electrical Controls and Electrical Equipment; (2) Main Drive Electrical Motor; (3) Auxiliary Drive Electric Motor; (4) Span Lock Electric Motor & Controls for a specific project in the State of Washington. In accordance with Division A, section 122 of the ‘‘Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2012’’ (Pub. L. 112–55), the FHWA published a notice of intent to issue a waiver on its Web site for (1) Electrical Controls and Electrical Equipment; (2) Main Drive Electrical Motor; (3) Auxiliary Drive Electric Motor; (4) Span Lock Electric Motor & Controls for a specific project in the State of Washington (http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/ construction/contracts/ waivers.cfm?id=76) on May 22nd. The FHWA received three comments in response to the publication. The first commenter (Donald Pearsal) stated that ‘‘if’’ there are manufacturers of this equipment in the United States, we should use it. The FHWA agrees with this comment. Unfortunately, however, the FHWA has been unable to locate a manufacturer who is able to produce these products in compliance with the FHWA Buy America requirements. The second commenter (Muhamad A. Naboulsi) opposed the waiver saying that ‘‘we have this type of technology,’’ but he did not provide information regarding which domestic manufacturer may produce these products in compliance with the FHWA’s Buy America requirements. The third commenter (Rich) supports the waiver if the American product is more than 50 percent over non-domestic product. However, this is not the standard for the application of Buy America. Under Buy America, all steel and iron of predominantly steel or iron products must manufactured in the United States. During the 15-day comment period, the FHWA conducted additional nationwide review to locate potential domestic manufacturers of (1) Electrical Controls and Electrical Equipment; (2) Main Drive Electrical Motor; (3) Auxiliary Drive Electric Motor; (4) Span Lock Electric Motor & Controls.
