Email: nosaa.ec@noaa.gov. FAX: 301–713– 4269. Comments may also be submitted through the NOS Environmental Compliance Web site: http:// oceanservice.noaa.gov/about/ environmental-compliance.html. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Giannina DiMaio, Environmental Compliance Coordinator for NOS, at nosaa.ec@noaa.gov or 240–533–0918. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: NEPA requires that NOAA consider all reasonably foreseeable environmental effects of our proposed actions, and to involve and inform the public in our decision making process. The main goal of this scoping process is to help NOS focus the analysis of the PEA on the relevant environmental and socioeconomic issues. NOS uses hydroacoustic surveys to map the ocean floor to provide reliable nautical charts, benthic habitat condition and distribution maps, fishery distribution maps, current and tide charts, and other products necessary for safe navigation, economic security, environmental sustainability, and sound marine resource decision-making in U.S. ocean and coastal waters. These charts and maps are needed to provide reliable navigation, ecosystem distribution and condition information to the public, private users, and decision makers. Up-to-date navigation charts are used to ensure safety, efficiency of transit, and economic wellbeing. NOS will take other environmental compliance steps concurrently with the preparation of this PEA to include: application for a 5-year Letter of Authorization pursuant to Section 101 of the Marine Mammal Protection Act; completion of a section 7 consultation under the Endangered Species Act; consultation on the Essential Fish Habitat provisions of the MagnusonStevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act; consultations in compliance with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act; and completion of federal consistency determinations for compliance with the Coastal Zone Management Act. Analysis conducted in support of consultations, including quantitative analysis for estimating acoustic impacts on marine species, will be included in the PEA as appropriate. NOS has not yet identified action alternatives to be analyzed in the PEA. NOS recommends that programmatic NEPA documents examine at least three VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:55 Dec 16, 2016 Jkt 241001 alternatives, including the no-action alternative. NOS will use input provided by Federal and State agencies, Territories, Tribal Governments, local governments, private parties, and the public during this scoping process in the preparation of the PEA. Publication of this notice initiates the public scoping process to solicit public and agency comment regarding the full spectrum of environmental issues and concerns relating to the scope and content of the PEA including: • Analyses of the human and marine resources that could be affected; • the nature and extent of the potential impacts on those resources; • a reasonable range of alternatives to the proposed action; and • mitigation and monitoring measures. Comments and questions concerning this PEA should be directed to the NOS contact at the address provided above. Authority: 42 U.S.C. 4321–4347; 40 CFR 1500 et seq.; NOAA Administrative Order 216–6A.

ACTION: Notice of availability. sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is announcing the availability of a completed rule review under section 610 of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) for the Standard for the Flammability (Open Flame) of Mattress Sets (Mattress Standard), 16 CFR part 1633.

The completed review will also be made available through the Federal eRulemaking Portal at https:// www.regulations.gov, under Docket No. CPSC–2006–0011, Supporting and Related Materials. Copies may also be obtained from the Consumer Product Safety Commission, Office of the Secretary, Room 820, 4330 East West Highway, Bethesda, MD 20814; telephone (301) 504–7923; email cpscos@cpsc.gov.

Scott, Fire Protection Engineer, Laboratory Sciences, Consumer Product Safety Commission 5 Research Place, Rockville, MD 20850, Telephone: (301) 987–2064; email: lscott@cpsc.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In 2006, the CPSC issued a Standard for the Flammability (Open Flame) of Mattress Sets under the Flammable Fabrics Act. (71 FR 13472, March 15, 2006). The Mattress Standard set forth test procedures and performance requirements that all mattress sets must meet before being introduced into commerce. These requirements are set forth at 16 CFR part 1633. On April 3, 2015, the Commission published notice in the Federal Register (80 FR 18218) to announce that the CPSC would review the Mattress Standard in accordance with the regulatory review provisions of section 610 of the RFA (5 U.S.C. 610) and sought public comment on the rule review. This document announces the availability of completed regulatory review of the Mattress Standard. The purpose of a rule review under section 610 of the RFA is to determine whether, consistent with the CPSC’s statutory obligations, this standard should be maintained without change, rescinded, or modified to minimize any significant impact of the rule on a substantial number of small entities. Section 610 requires agencies to consider five factors in reviewing rules to minimize any significant economic impact of the rule on a substantial number of small entities including: (1) The continued need for the rule; 1 The Commissioners voted 5–0 to approve publication of the notice in the Federal Register. Commissioner Joseph P. Mohorovic’s Statement Regarding the Commission’s Regulatory Flexibility Act Review of the Standard for the Flammability (Open Flame) Of Mattress Sets is available at: https://www.cpsc.gov/About-CPSC/Commissioners/ Joseph-Mohorovic/statements. PO 00000 Frm 00024 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 91923 (2) The nature of complaints or comments received concerning the rule from the public; (3) The complexity of the rule; (4) The extent to which the rule overlaps, duplicates or conflicts with other Federal rules, and, to the extent feasible, with State and local governmental rules; and (5) The length of time since the rule has been evaluated or the degree to which technology, economic conditions, or other factors have changed in the area affected by the rule. 5 U.S.C. 610(b). The CPSC received 16 written comments representing the views of mattress manufacturers, component manufacturers, fire safety representatives, third party testing bodies, environmental groups, trade associations, and consumers. Staff’s briefing package reviews these comments and provides staff’s analysis applying the factors listed in section 610 of the RFA to the Mattress Standard. As explained in the staff’s briefing package, the staff concludes that the Mattress Standard should be continued without any changes. However, staff believes that stakeholders may benefit from additional outreach and training. The staff’s briefing package containing the review is available on the CPSC Web site at: https://www.cpsc.gov/Business-Manufacturing/Business-Education/ Business-Guidance/Mattresses, www.regulations.gov, and from the Commission’s Office of the Secretary at the location listed in the ADDRESSES section of this notice.
