Document Number: 2014-22639

National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan; National Priorities List: Direct Deletion of the Monroe Auto Equipment (Paragould Pit) Superfund Site
Document Number: 2014-22638
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-09-25
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 6 is publishing a final Notice of Deletion of the Monroe Auto Equipment (Paragould Pit) Superfund Site located in Paragould, Greene County, Arkansas, from the National Priorities List (NPL).

This final deletion is being published by EPA with the concurrence of the State of Arkansas, through the Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ), because EPA has determined that all appropriate response actions under CERCLA have been completed. However, this deletion does not preclude future actions under Superfund.
Standard Claims and Appeals Forms
Document Number: 2014-22633
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-09-25
Agency: Department of Veterans Affairs
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) amends its adjudication regulations and the appeals regulations and rules of practice of the Board of Veterans' Appeals (Board) to require that all claims governed by VA's adjudication regulations be filed on standard forms prescribed by the Secretary, regardless of the type of claim or posture in which the claim arises. This rulemaking also eliminates the constructive receipt of VA reports of hospitalization or examination and other medical records as informal claims for increase or to reopen while retaining the retroactive effective date assignment for awards for claims for increase which are filed on a standard form within 1 year of such hospitalization, examination, or treatment. This final rule also implements the concept of an intent to file a claim for benefits, which operates similarly to the current informal claim process, but requires that the submission establishing a claimant's effective date of benefits must be received in one of three specified formats. Finally, these amendments will provide that VA will accept an expression of dissatisfaction or disagreement with an adjudicative determination by the agency of original jurisdiction(AOJ) as a Notice of Disagreement (NOD) only if it is submitted on a standardized form provided by VA for the purpose of appealing the decision, in cases where such a form is provided. Although a standardized NOD form will only initially be provided in connection with decisions on compensation claims, VA may require a standard NOD form for any type of claim for VA benefits if, in the future, it develops and provides a standardized NOD form for a particular benefit. The purpose of these amendments is to improve the quality and timeliness of the processing of veterans' claims for benefits by standardizing the claims and appeals processes through the use of forms.

Justification of a Single Source Cooperative Agreement Award for the World Health Organization
Document Number: 2014-22773
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-09-24
Agency: Department of Health and Human Services
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) intends to fund an unsolicited proposal submitted by the World Health Organization (WHO) to support work towards establishing a regulatory pathway at WHO for prequalification of medical countermeasures to be deployed internationally in an emergency, which includes supporting WHO and potential recipient countries to build regulatory capacity for the import, registration, and emergency use of medical countermeasures. The goals of this Cooperative Agreement are to: (1) Using smallpox vaccines as a case study, complete product review and prequalification of smallpox vaccines included in or pledged to the WHO Smallpox Vaccine Emergency Stockpile for emergency use; (2) Establish general regulatory pathways for emergency use authorization and/or a process for emergency prequalification of emergency medical countermeasures and; (3) Support potential recipient WHO member states in building capacities for the import, registration, and emergency use of medical countermeasures. This Cooperative Agreement directly supports several federal initiatives focused on strengthening national and international health security, including HHS's ongoing work within the Global Health Security Initiative (GHSI) to develop an operational framework for the international deployment of medical countermeasures which contemplates the legal, regulatory, and logistical issues to be considered during such a deployment as noted in the 2013 GHSI Ministerial communique.\1\ Additionally, it supports Objective 9 of the Global Health Security Agenda \2\ which calls for improving global access to medical and non- medical countermeasures during health emergencies and the improvement of international deployment capabilities. It also aligns with the HHS Global Health Strategy priority to ``develop policy frameworks, agreements and operational plans to facilitate HHS decision-making in response to both single and multiple international requests for emergency assistance, including for the deployment of medical countermeasures and HHS personnel.'' \3\
