Download as PDF 24156 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 79 / Wednesday, April 24, 2013 / Notices tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Background Under the regulations in ‘‘Subpart— Regulated Articles From Hawaii and the Territories’’ (7 CFR 318.13–1 through 318.13–26, referred to below as the regulations), the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) of the U.S. Department of Agriculture prohibits or restricts the interstate movement of fruits and vegetables into the continental United States from Hawaii, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands to prevent plant pests and noxious weeds from being introduced into and spread within the continental United States. (The continental United States is defined in § 318.13–2 of the regulations as the 48 contiguous States, Alaska, and the District of Columbia.) Section 318.13–4 contains a performance-based process for approving the interstate movement of commodities that, based on the findings of a pest risk analysis, can be safely moved subject to one or more of the designated phytosanitary measures listed in paragraph (b) of that section. APHIS received a request from tropical fruit growers in Puerto Rico to allow the interstate movement of fresh sapote fruit (Pouteria sapota) from Puerto Rico to the continental United States. We have completed a pest risk assessment to identify pests of quarantine significance that could follow the pathway of interstate movement into the continental United States and, based on that pest risk assessment, have prepared a risk management document to identify phytosanitary measures that could be applied to the commodity to mitigate the pest risk. We have concluded that sapote fruit can be safely moved from Puerto Rico to the continental United States using one or more of the six designated phytosanitary measures listed in § 318.13–4(b). The measures under which sapote fruit may be moved from Puerto Rico to the continental United States are: • Inspection in Puerto Rico; and • Movement of the sapote fruit as commercial consignments only. Therefore, in accordance with § 318.13–4(c), we are announcing the availability of our pest risk assessment and risk management document for public review and comment. The documents may be viewed on the Regulations.gov Web site or in our reading room (see ADDRESSES above for instructions for accessing Regulations.gov and information on the location and hours of the reading room). You may request paper copies of the VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:05 Apr 23, 2013 Jkt 229001 pest risk analysis by calling or writing to the person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. Please refer to the subject of the pest risk analysis when requesting copies. After reviewing the comments we receive, we will announce our decision regarding the interstate movement of sapote fruit from Puerto Rico to the continental United States in a subsequent notice. If the overall conclusions of the analysis and the Administrator’s determination of risk remain unchanged following our consideration of the comments, then we will begin allowing the interstate movement of sapote fruit from Puerto Rico to the continental United States subject to the requirements specified in the risk management document.

The ASF is an option for grantees for the establishment or reorganization of zones and can permit significantly greater flexibility in the designation of new ‘‘subzone/usagedriven’’ FTZ sites for operators/users located within a grantee’s ‘‘service area’’ in the context of the Board’s standard 2,000-acre activation limit for a zone. The application was submitted pursuant to the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR part 400). It was formally filed on April 18, 2013.

(Sites 1–18 and 25 are subject to a sunset provision of May 31, 2013 and Sites 19 and 21–24 are subject to a sunset provision of May 31, 2015.) The grantee’s proposed service area under the ASF would be the Counties of Accomack, Gloucester, Isle of Wight, James City, Mathews, Northampton, Southampton, Sussex, Surry, and York and the Cities of Chesapeake, Franklin, Hampton, Newport News, Norfolk, Poquoson, Portsmouth, Suffolk, Virginia Beach and Williamsburg, Virginia, as described in the application. If approved, the grantee would be able to serve sites throughout the service area based on companies’ needs for FTZ designation. The proposed service area is within and adjacent to the NorfolkNewport News Customs and Border Protection port of entry. The applicant is requesting authority to reorganize its existing zone under the ASF as follows: to renumber parcel A of Site 7 as Site 7; to renumber parcel B of Site 7 as Site 27; to renumber parcel C of Site 7 as Site 28; to renumber parcel D of Site 7 as Site 29; to renumber parcel E of Site 7 as Site 30; to renumber parcel F of Site 7 as Site 31; Sites 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 21, 23, 24, 28, 29, 30 and 31 would become magnet sites; and, Sites 1, 2, 10, 22, 25, 27, 32 and 33 would become ‘‘usage-driven’’ sites. The applicant is also requesting to expand the zone to include a new magnet site: Proposed Site 34 (202 acres)—Suffolk Intermodal Center, 2700 Holland Road, Suffolk and, the following ‘‘usagedriven’’ site: Proposed Site 35 (54 acres)—Katoen Natie Norfolk, Inc., 810 Ford Drive, Norfolk. The ASF allows for the possible exemption of one magnet site from the ‘‘sunset’’ time limits that generally apply to sites under the ASF, and the applicant proposes that Site 4 be so exempted. The application would have no impact on FTZ 20’s previously authorized subzones. In accordance with the Board’s regulations, Kathleen Boyce of the FTZ Staff is designated examiner to evaluate and analyze the facts and information presented in the application and case record and to report findings and recommendations to the Board. Public comment is invited from interested parties. Submissions shall be addressed to the Board’s Executive Secretary at the address below. The closing period for their receipt is June 24, 2013.
