Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 130 / Tuesday, July 8, 2014 / Notices NCWM Laws and Regulations Committee (L & R Committee) Notice of SEDAR 41 Data Workshop for South Atlantic red snapper (Lutjanus campechanus) and gray triggerfish (Balistes capriscus). ACTION: The following item is a proposal to amend NIST Handbook 130: Item 231–2 Section 10.3. Aerosols and Similar Pressurized Containers This item includes a proposal to clarify that a current method of sale applies to aerosol containers, and containers that utilize Bag-on-Valve (BOV) technology and other selfpressurized packages that have their net content declarations presented in terms of fluid volume. Currently, under the Uniform Packaging and Labeling Regulation (UPLR) adopted by many states and under regulations issued by both the Food and Drug Administration and the Federal Trade Commission, products sold in aerosol or similar pressurized containers must be offered for sale by net weight. BOV packaging, which has been in the marketplace for many years, is used to sell the same products sold in aerosol containers (e.g., sunscreen, wound wash, shaving cream, and car-care products). Because BOV containers (with their net contents declared in fluid volume) are used to sell the same type of products dispensed from aerosol containers (with their net contents declared by weight), consumers are unable to make value comparisons between similar products. The L&R Committee proposal will allow the companies which currently label containers by volume in conflict with the existing method of sale at least three years (the deadline for compliance is January 1, 2018) to bring their labeling into compliance. Dated: June 26, 2014. Willie E. May, Associate Director for Laboratory Programs.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Gulf of Mexico, South Atlantic, and Caribbean Fishery Management Councils, in conjunction with NOAA Fisheries and the Atlantic and Gulf States Marine Fisheries Commissions have implemented the Southeast Data, Assessment and Review (SEDAR) process, a multi-step method for determining the status of fish stocks in the Southeast Region. SEDAR is a three step process including: (1) Data Workshop; (2) Assessment Process utilizing workshops and webinars; and (3) Review Workshop. The product of the Data Workshop is a data report which compiles and evaluates potential datasets and recommends which datasets are appropriate for assessment analyses. The product of the Assessment Process is a stock assessment report which describes the fisheries, evaluates the status of the stock, estimates biological benchmarks, projects future population conditions, and recommends research and monitoring needs. The assessment is independently peer reviewed at the Review Workshop. The product of the Review Workshop is a SUMMARY: NIST Handbook 130—Uniform Regulation for the Method of Sale of Commodities PO 00000 Frm 00014 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 38495 Summary documenting panel opinions regarding the strengths and weaknesses of the stock assessment and input data. Participants for SEDAR Workshops are appointed by the Gulf of Mexico, South Atlantic, and Caribbean Fishery Management Councils, the Atlantic and Gulf States Marine Fisheries Commissions and NOAA Fisheries Southeast Regional Office and Southeast Fisheries Science Center. Participants include: Data collectors and database managers; stock assessment scientists, biologists, and researchers; constituency representatives including fishermen, environmentalists, and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs); international experts; and staff of Councils, Commissions, and state and federal agencies. An assessment data set and associated documentation will be developed during the Data Workshop. Participants will evaluate all available data and select appropriate sources for providing information on life history characteristics, catch statistics, discard estimates, length and age composition, and fishery independent and fishery dependent measures of stock abundance, as specified in the Terms of Reference for the workshop. Although non-emergency issues not contained in this agenda may come before this group for discussion, those issues may not be the subject of formal action during this meeting. Action will be restricted to those issues specifically identified in this notice and any issues arising after publication of this notice that require emergency action under section 305(c) of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act, provided the public has been notified of the intent to take final action to address the emergency. Special Accommodations The meeting is accessible to people with disabilities. Requests for auxiliary aids should be directed to the SEDAR office (see ADDRESSES) at least 10 business days prior to the meetings.
