Proposed Collection of Information: TreasuryDirect System, 75163-75164 [2015-30344]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 230 / Tuesday, December 1, 2015 / Notices this age will not fall under FRA’s alerter regulations until January 1, 2017. tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES FRA Regulations FRA safety regulations addressing alerters on freight locomotives are found at 49 CFR 229.140. See 77 FR 21312 (April 9, 2012). Section 229.140 requires all controlling locomotives that are placed in service for the first time on or after June 10, 2013, and operated at speeds in excess of 25 mph to be equipped with an alerter. This section also requires all controlling locomotives operated at speeds in excess of 25 mph on or after January 1, 2017, to be equipped with an alerter, regardless of when they were first placed in service. This section prohibits automatic systems from resetting the locomotive alerter. Specifically, 49 CFR 229.140(b)(3) requires movement of the engineer’s horn activation handle to reset the alerter warning timing cycle. Using a horn sequencer to reset the alerter with each sounding of the horn (one for each of the long-long-short-long sequence) does not satisfy 49 CFR 229.140(b)(3), because all but the first horn blast are initiated automatically. This section requires engineers to take direct action, either by operation of certain controls or actuation of the manual reset, to restart the alerter warning timing cycle. Further, under 49 CFR 229.140(e), the alerter must be functioning and operating as intended when the locomotive is used. FRA addresses failures to comply with these regulatory requirements through inspections and enforcement activities. Recommended Action: In light of the discussion above, and because many older locomotives, including locomotives from smaller manufacturers and remanufacturers are still in service, FRA recommends that all freight railroads check the operation of their locomotives equipped with alerters to ensure that no system resets the alerter warning timing cycle without direct engineer action. This review should include, but not be limited to, the operation of horn sequencer circuitry, if equipped. Railroads should modify any such systems they find to ensure that no system interferes with the alerter warning timing cycle. In particular, FRA recommends that railroads that may have installed alerters prior to June 10, 2013, review the design of those systems and modify them as necessary, before January 1, 2017, to ensure safety and compliance with 49 CFR 229.140(b)(3).

ACTION: Notice, publication of updated list of items defined as medical supplies. AGENCY: The Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) is publishing an updated list of items defined as medical supplies under section 560.530(a)(3)(ii) of the Iranian Transactions and Sanctions Regulations, 31 CFR part 560, and generally licensed for exportation or reexportation to Iran pursuant to section 560.530(a)(3)(i), to include additional items.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Electronic and Facsimile Availability The text of the List of Medical Supplies and additional information concerning OFAC are available from OFAC’s Web site (www.treasury.gov/ ofac). Certain general information VerDate Sep<11>2014 23:35 Nov 30, 2015 Jkt 238001 pertaining to OFAC’s sanctions programs also is available via facsimile through a 24-hour fax-on-demand service, tel.: 202–622–0077. Background On October 22, 2012, OFAC published a final rule in the Federal Register (77 FR 64664) that, among other things, amended section 560.530 of the Iranian Transactions and Sanctions Regulations, 31 CFR part 560 (ITSR), to add a general license, in new paragraph (a)(3), authorizing the exportation or reexportation of medicine and basic medical supplies to Iran. The term ‘‘basic medical supplies’’ was defined to mean those medical devices, as defined in paragraph (e)(3) of section 560.530, that were included on the ‘‘List of Basic Medical Supplies’’ on the OFAC Web site (www.treasury.gov/ofac) on the Iran Sanctions page, but not including replacement parts. On the same day, OFAC also posted the List of Basic Medical Supplies on its Web site (78 FR 54731). OFAC updated the List of Basic Medical Supplies on its Web site on July 25, 2013, and subsequently published notice of the update in the Federal Register (78 FR 54731). On April 7, 2014, OFAC published a final rule in the Federal Register (79 FR 18990) that, among other things, updated the definition of ‘‘basic medical supplies’’ to exclude the word ‘‘basic’’ and make related conforming changes. Accordingly, the rule further provided that the ‘‘List of Basic Medical Supplies’’ published on the OFAC Web site and in the Federal Register would now be called the ‘‘List of Medical Supplies.’’ As highlighted in the note to paragraph (a)(3)(ii) of section 560.530 of the ITSR, the List of Medical Supplies is maintained on OFAC’s Web site and will be published in the Federal Register, as will any changes to the list. On November 2, 2015, OFAC updated the List of Medical Supplies on its Web site to read as follows: GENERAL LICENSE 31 CFR 560.530(a)(3), Authorizing the Exportation or Reexportation of Medicine and Medical Supplies to Iran List of Medical Supplies (Updated November 2, 2015) The list below comprises the medical supplies defined in 31 CFR 560.530(a)(3)(ii).
