ACTION: Final notice. AGENCY: This Notice revises the U.S. Standards for Grades of Creole Onions, which are issued under the Agricultural Marketing Act of 1946. The Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) is amending the similar varietal characteristic requirement to allow mixed colors of onions, when designated as a mixed or specialty pack, to be certified to a U.S. grade. In addition, AMS will correct language and remove the ‘‘Unclassified’’ category from the standards. These revisions will align the standards with today’s marketing practices and provide the industry with greater flexibility. DATES: Effective Date: November 24, 2014.

The current U.S. Standards for Grades of Creole Onions are available on the SCI Division Web site at http://www.ams. usda.gov/scihome. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 203(c) of the Agricultural Marketing Act of 1946 (7 U.S.C. 1621–1627), as amended, directs and authorizes the Secretary of Agriculture ‘‘to develop and improve standards of quality, condition, quantity, grade and packaging, and recommend and demonstrate such standards in order to encourage uniformity and consistency in commercial practices.’’ AMS is committed to carrying out this authority in a manner that facilitates the marketing of agricultural commodities and makes copies of official standards available upon request. The U.S. standards for grades of fruits and vegetables that are not connected with marketing orders or U.S. import requirements no longer appear in the Code of Federal Regulations, but are maintained by USDA, AMS, Fruit and Vegetable Program, and are available on the Internet at www.ams.usda.gov/ scihome. AMS is revising the voluntary U.S. Standards for Grades of Creole Onions using the procedures that appear in Part 36, Title 7 of the Code of Federal Regulations (7 CFR part 36). Background and Comments The industry, particularly in Idaho, Oregon, Texas, and Washington, are packing mixed colors of onions. Currently, the Creole onion standards do not permit certifying a U.S. grade to a pack that comingles colors, such as white onions with yellow to brownish red onions. On August 22, 2013, AMS published a notice in the Federal Register (78 FR 52131) proposing to revise the U.S. Standards for Grades of Creole Onions to allow mixed color packs of onions to be certified to a U.S. grade. We apprised the onion industry of this notice to foster widespread participation in the Part 36 process. The comment period closed on October 21, 2013. No comments were received. Based on the information gathered, AMS will amend the similar varietal characteristic requirement in the U.S. No. 1 and U.S. No. 2 sections of the standards by adding ‘‘except color when designated as a specialty or mixed pack.’’ The U.S. Combination grade section also will be amended to reflect this change. In addition, AMS will eliminate the ‘‘Unclassified’’ section. AMS is removing this section from standards for all commodities as they are revised. PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 This category, which is not a grade and only serves to show that no grade has been applied to the lot, is no longer necessary. Furthermore, AMS will replace the capital ‘‘S’’ with a small ‘‘s’’ on the word ‘‘Seedstems’’ in the U.S. No. 1 and U.S. No. 2 sections of the standards to correct a formatting error. These revisions will facilitate onion marketing in the competitive U.S. market. The official grade of a lot of Creole onions covered by these standards will be determined by the procedures set forth in the Regulations Governing Inspection, Certification, and Standards of Fresh Fruits, Vegetables and Other Products (Sec. 51.1 to 51.61). The U.S. Standards for Grades of Creole Onions will be effective 30 days after publication of this notice in the Federal Register. Authority: 7 U.S.C. 1621–1627. Dated: October 17, 2014. Rex A.

Specifically, the charge is: mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:52 Oct 22, 2014 Jkt 235001 Charge 1 15 CFR § 764.2(d)—Conspiracy Beginning at least in 2008, and continuing through in or about January 2012, Faizy, Ghavidel and Techonweb conspired and acted in concert with others, known and unknown, to bring about an act that constitutes a violation of the Regulations. The purpose of the conspiracy was to bring about the export of computers, items classified as 5A992 on the Commerce Control 1 The Regulations are currently codified in the Code of Federal Regulations at 15 CFR Parts 730– 774 (2014). The charged violation occurred between 2005 and 2012. The Regulations governing the violation at issue are found in the 2005–2012 versions of the Code of Federal Regulations (15 CFR Parts 730–774). The 2014 Regulations set forth the procedures that apply to this matter. 2 50 U.S.C. app. §§ 2401–2420 (2000). Since August 21, 2001, the Act has been in lapse and the President, through Executive Order 13222 of August 17, 2001 (3 CFR, 2001 Comp. 783 (2002)), which has been extended by successive Presidential Notices, the most recent being that of August 7, 2014 (79 Fed. Reg. 46959 (Aug. 11, 2014)), has continued the Regulations in effect under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. § 1701, et seq.) (2006 & Supp. IV 2010). PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 63379 List and valued at $1,015,757, by Techonweb from the United States through the United Arab Emirates (‘‘UAE’’) to Iran, without the required U.S. Government authorization.3 Items classified as 5A992 are subject to control for Anti-Terrorism reasons, and, pursuant to Section 742.8 and 746.7(a) of the Regulations, a license was required to export these items to Iran at all times pertinent hereto. The items were also subject to the Iranian Transaction Regulations (‘‘ITR’’) 4 administered by the Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (‘‘OFAC’’). The Regulations also prohibited the export or reexport to Iran, whether directly or transshipped through a third country, of any item subject to both the Regulations and the ITR, if the transaction was not authorized by OFAC.5 In order to avoid duplication, exporters and reexporters were not required under the Regulations to seek authorization from both BIS and OFAC for exports or reexports subject to both the EAR and the ITR, and accordingly an authorization granted by OFAC was considered authorization for purposes of the EAR as well. However, Faizy, Ghavidel, and Techonweb did not seek or obtain authorization from BIS, or from OFAC, in connection with any of the activities or transactions alleged herein. Specifically, in furtherance of the conspiracy, Faizy, Ghavidel and Techonweb, which was owned by Faizy and Ghavidel and for which Faizy served as President and Director and Ghavidel served as Chief Financial Officer and Director, participated in a scheme to export computers to Iran without the required licenses. In or about 2008, Faizy and Ghavidel attended a computer trade show in Dubai, UAE, to recruit and obtain contact information from potential customers in Iran. After forming the conspiracy, Faizy and Ghavidel then communicated with their co-conspirators through electronic mail, instant messaging and other forms of electronic communication, using fictitious names and coded language to obscure the true identities and locations of the ultimate consignees. Faizy and Ghavidel, through Techonweb, obtained computers from various suppliers in the United States for the purposes of selling and exporting the computers to Iran. Additionally, in furtherance of the conspiracy, from December 2009 through March 2011, Faizy and Ghavidel, through Techonweb, exported 1,038 computers, 3 Pursuant to Section 734.2(b)(6) of the Regulations, the export of an item from the United States to a second country intended for transshipment to a third country is deemed to be an export to that third country. 4 31 CFR Part 560 (2008–2012). Subsequent to the violation charged herein, OFAC changed the heading of 31 CFR Part 560 from the Iranian Transactions Regulations to the Iranian Transactions and Sanctions Regulations (‘‘ITSR’’), amended the renamed ITSR in part, and reissued them in their entirety. See 77 Fed. Reg. 64,664 (Oct. 22, 2012). 31 CFR Part 560 remains the same in pertinent part. 5 Pursuant to Section 560.204 of the ITR, an export to a third country intended for transshipment to Iran was a transaction that required OFAC authorization at all times pertinent hereto.
