NMFS, on behalf of the Secretary, notifies the appropriate fishery management council (Council) whenever it determines that overfishing is occurring, a stock is in an overfished condition, a stock is approaching an overfished condition, or when a rebuilding plan has not resulted in adequate progress toward ending overfishing and rebuilding affected fish stocks.

The Waste Confidence public meeting in San Luis Obispo will now be held on November 20, 2013. The rescheduled meetings will allow the NRC to receive public comments on proposed amendments to the NRC's regulations pertaining to the environmental impacts of the continued storage of spent nuclear fuel beyond a reactor's licensed life for operation and prior to ultimate disposal (the proposed Waste Confidence rule) and the draft generic environmental impact statement (DGEIS), NUREG-2157, ``Waste Confidence Generic Environmental Impact Statement,'' that forms a regulatory basis for the proposed rule. The meetings are open to the public, and anyone may attend. The NRC will publish notices for other postponed and rescheduled Waste Confidence public meetings as soon as practicable.

Assistance to Foreign Atomic Energy Activities
On September 7, 2011, DOE issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NOPR) to propose the first comprehensive updating of regulations concerning Assistance to Foreign Atomic Energy Activities since 1986.

It also identified destinations with respect to which most assistance would be generally authorized. Remaining destinations would require a specific authorization by the Secretary of Energy. After careful consideration of all comments received, DOE published a supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking (SNOPR) on August 2, 2013, to respond to those comments, propose new or revised rule changes, and afford interested parties an opportunity to comment. A public meeting on the SNOPR was held at DOE's headquarters on August 5, 2013.
