Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 110 / Tuesday, June 9, 2015 / Notices values should enable consumers to compare the cost and mileage economy of different fuels, and so enable informed purchasing decisions when considering the use, purchase, or lease of vehicles equipped to operate on different fuels. Taximeters (and GPS Devices When Used in Transportation Services) Items 354–1, 354–2, 354–3, 354–4, and 354–5 The S&T Committee is recommending for adoption this group of proposals (listed above), which includes proposed revisions and updates to the Taximeter Code in NIST Handbook 44 to address changes in technology related to indicating and recording elements (i.e., printers) and operational features including the indications required to be presented to passengers. Item 354–6 U.S. National Working Group on Taximeters and Global Positioning System-Based Systems for Time and Distance Measurement The S&T Committee will hear a progress report from a national working group that is studying the use of Global Positioning Systems and smart phone/ web based applications in transportation services in order to develop proposed specifications, tolerances, and other technical requirements to ensure accuracy and transparency for passengers, drivers, and businesses for inclusion in NIST Handbook 44. This item is designated as a ‘‘Developing Item’’ on the Committee’s agenda to allow further study and refinement of these issues. Other Items tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Item 360–5 Electric Vehicle Fueling and Submetering The S&T Committee is recommending adoption of a tentative code for use in electric vehicle charging and submetering for inclusion in NIST Handbook 44. The code was developed by a NIST U.S. National Working Group that continues to further refine the specifications, tolerances, and other technical requirements to ensure accuracy and transparency for drivers of electric vehicles and power resellers. The S&T Committee is also recommending for adoption proposed changes to the Section 5.55. ‘‘Timing Devices’’ in NIST Handbook 44 to address requirements for the timing mechanisms that are likely to be used in some recharging systems to determine additional charges for other services (e.g., parking). VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:12 Jun 08, 2015 Jkt 235001 NCWM Laws and Regulations Committee (L&R Committee) DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE The following items are proposals to amend NIST Handbook 130 or NIST Handbook 133: NIST Handbook 130—Section on Uniform Regulation for the Method of Sale of Commodities Item 232–3 Animal Bedding The L&R Committee is recommending the adoption of a uniform method of sale for animal bedding that will enhance the ability of consumers to make value comparisons and will ensure fair competition. Animal Bedding is generally defined as any material, except for baled straw, that is kept, offered or exposed for sale or sold to retail consumers for primary use as a medium for any pet or companion or livestock animal to nest or eliminate waste. If adopted, the proposal will require packers to advertise and sell packages of animal bedding on the basis of the expanded volume of the bedding. Most packages of animal bedding are compressed during packaging and the expanded volume is the amount of product that consumers will recover through unwrapping and decompressing the bedding according to the instructions provided by the packer. See also Item 260–3 for proposed Test Procedures for Verifying the Expanded Volume Declaration on Packages of Animal Bedding. NIST Handbook 133—‘‘Checking the Net Contents of Packaged Goods’’ Item 260–1 Chitterling Test Procedure The L&R Committee is recommending for adoption a proposal that will add a test procedure and purge allowance to NIST Handbook 133 so the drainage equipment and methods used by state and local weights and measures officials are identical to those used by the Food Safety and Inspection Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture in packing plants. This test procedure will also be used in verifying the amount of purge from beef tripe. Authority: 15 U.S.C. 272(b)(6). Richard Cavanagh, Acting Associate Director for Laboratory Programs.
