Summary of Comments Received in Response to the Proposed Evaluation and Pending Determination [FR Doc. 2015–01567 Filed 1–27–15; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 3510–22–P NMFS published notice of its proposed evaluation and pending determination on the RMP for public review and comment on August 5, 2014 (79 FR 45426). The proposed evaluation and pending determination and an associated draft environmental assessment were available for public review and comment for 30 days. NMFS received no comments in response to the notice. However, NMFS did receive comments from one environmental group pertaining to the proposed evaluation and pending determination on the RMP in response to a prior, separate notice published to announce availability for public review of NMFS’s draft Supplemental Environmental Assessment for the RMP (79 FR 35318, June 20, 2014). NMFS considered these comments in completing the final Evaluation and Recommended Determination document, but no substantive changes were required to the RMP. A detailed summary of the comments and NMFS’ responses is also available on the Sustainable Fisheries Division Web site. Based on its evaluation and recommended determination and taking into account the public comments, NMFS issued its final determination on the Elwha River basin salmon and steelhead hatchery RMP. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Authority Under section 4 of the ESA, the Secretary of Commerce is required to adopt such regulations as he deems necessary and advisable for the conservation of species listed as threatened. The ESA salmon and steelhead 4(d) Rule (65 FR 42422, July 10, 2000) specifies categories of activities that contribute to the conservation of listed salmonids and sets out the criteria for such activities. The Rule further provides that the prohibitions of paragraph (a) of the Rule do not apply to actions undertaken in compliance with a RMP developed jointly by the State of Washington and the Tribe and determined by NMFS to be in accordance with the salmon and steelhead 4(d) Rule (65 FR 42422, July 10, 2000).

[FR Doc. 2015–01540 Filed 1–27–15; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 3510–KD–P DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE United States Patent and Trademark Office Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request; Fastener Quality Act Insignia Recordal Process The Department of Commerce will submit to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for clearance the following proposal for collection of information under the provisions of the PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35). Agency: United States Patent and Trademark Office, Commerce. Title: Fastener Quality Act Insignia Recordal Process. OMB Control Number: 0651–0028. Form Number(s): • PTO–1611. Type of Request: Regular. Number of Respondents: 82. Average Hours per Response: 0.25. Burden Hours: 20.5. Cost Burden: $1,683.52. Needs and Uses: Under Section 5 of the Fastener Quality Act of 1999 (FQA), 15 U.S.C. 5401 et seq., certain industrial fasteners must bear an insignia identifying the manufacturer. It is also mandatory for manufacturers of fasteners covered by the FQA to submit an application to the United Stated Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for recordal of the insignia on the Fastener Insignia Register. The procedures for the recordal of fastener insignia under the FQA are set forth in 15 CFR 280.300 et seq. The purpose of requiring both the insignia and the recordation is to ensure that certain fasteners can be traced to their manufacturers and to protect against the sale of mismarked, misrepresented, or counterfeit fasteners. The insignia may be either a unique alphanumeric designation that the USPTO will issue upon request or a trademark that is registered at the USPTO or is the subject of an application to obtain a registration. After a manufacturer submits a complete application for recordal, the USPTO issues a Certificate of Recordal. These certificates remain active for five years. Applications to renew the certificates must be filed within six months of the expiration date or, upon payment of an additional surcharge, within six months following the expiration date. If a recorded alphanumeric designation is assigned by the manufacturer, the designation becomes ‘‘inactive,’’ and the new owner must submit an application to reactivate the designation within six months of the date of assignment. If the recordal is based on a trademark application or registration, and that registration is assigned, the recordal becomes ‘‘inactive’’ and cannot be reactivated. Instead, the new owner of the trademark application or registration must apply for a new recordal. Manufacturers who record insignia must notify the USPTO of any changes of address. This information collection includes one form, the Application for Recordal E:\FR\FM\28JAN1.SGM 28JAN1
