Download as PDF mstockstill on DSK30JT082PROD with NOTICES 17626 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 69 / Wednesday, April 12, 2017 / Notices product: A protozoan, a nonhuman animal, a parasitic plant, a bacterium, a fungus, a virus or viroid, an infectious agent or other pathogen, or any article similar to or allied with any of the foregoing. APHIS has prepared a plant pest risk similarity assessment (PPRSA) to compare MS11 canola to the antecedent. As described in the PPRSA, the proteins expressed in MS11 canola are similar to those expressed in MS8 canola, and APHIS has concluded that the proteins expressed in MS8 canola are unlikely to pose a plant health risk. Therefore, based on the similarity between MS8 canola and MS11 canola as described in the PPRSA, APHIS has concluded that MS11 canola is no more likely to pose a plant pest risk than MS8 canola. APHIS has also prepared a draft environmental assessment (EA) in which it presents two alternatives based on its analysis of data submitted by Bayer, a review of other scientific data, and field tests conducted under APHIS oversight. APHIS is considering the following alternatives: (1) Take no action, i.e., APHIS would not change the regulatory status of MS11 canola and it would continue to be a regulated article, or (2) make a determination of nonregulated status for MS11 canola. Based on the similarity of MS11 canola to MS8 canola, APHIS has also prepared a preliminary finding of no significant impact (FONSI) for MS11 canola. The draft EA and the FONSI were prepared in accordance with: (1) The National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA), as amended (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.); (2) regulations of the Council on Environmental Quality for implementing the procedural provisions of NEPA (40 CFR parts 1500–1508); (3) USDA regulations implementing NEPA (7 CFR part 1b); and (4) APHIS’ NEPA Implementing Procedures (7 CFR part 372). APHIS has analyzed information submitted by Bayer, references provided in the extension request, peer-reviewed publications, and supporting documentation prepared for the antecedent organism. Based on APHIS’ analysis of this information and the similarity of MS11 canola to the antecedent organism MS8 canola, APHIS has determined that MS11 canola is unlikely to pose a plant pest risk. We have therefore reached a preliminary decision to approve the request to extend the determination of nonregulated status of MS8 canola to MS11 canola, whereby MS11 canola would no longer be subject to our regulations governing the introduction of certain genetically engineered organisms. VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:45 Apr 11, 2017 Jkt 241001 Paragraph (e) of § 340.6 provides that APHIS will publish a notice in the Federal Register announcing all preliminary decisions to extend determinations of nonregulated status for 30 days before the decisions become final and effective. In accordance with § 340.6(e) of the regulations, we are publishing this notice to inform the public of our preliminary decision to extend the determination of nonregulated status of MS8 canola to MS11 canola. APHIS will accept written comments on the draft EA and preliminary FONSI regarding a determination of nonregulated status of MS11 canola for a period of 30 days from the date this notice is published in the Federal Register. The draft EA and preliminary FONSI, as well as the extension request, PPRSA, and our preliminary determination for MS11 canola, are available for public review as indicated under ADDRESSES and FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT above. Copies of these documents may also be obtained by contacting the person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. After the comment period closes, APHIS will review all written comments received during the comment period and any other relevant information. All comments will be available for public review. After reviewing and evaluating the comments, APHIS will furnish a response to the petitioner regarding our final regulatory determination. APHIS will also publish a notice in the Federal Register announcing the regulatory status of MS11 canola and the availability of APHIS’ written environmental decision and regulatory determination.

Abstract: The development of the Child Nutrition (CN) Database is regulated by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Food and Nutrition Service. This database is designed to be incorporated in USDA-approved nutrient analysis software and provide an accurate source of nutrient data. The software allows schools participating in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and School Breakfast Program (SBP) to analyze meals and measure the compliance of the menus to established nutrition goals and standards specified in 7 CFR 210.10 for the NSLP and 7 CFR 220.8 for the SBP. The information collection for the CN Database is conducted using an outside contractor. The CN Database is updated annually with brand name or manufactured foods commonly used in school food service. To update and expand the CN Database, collection of this information is accomplished by form FNS–710, CN Database Qualification Report. The Food and Nutrition Service’s contractor collects this data from the food industry through the paper form, an online Web Tool, or a spreadsheet (for bulk data submissions). The online Web tool is available at: https:// healthymeals.fns.usda.gov/online-webtool-submitting-nutrient-data-0. The paper form and online Web Tool were revised to add two nutrients, vitamin D and potassium, and to remove an obsolete ingredient list. The form was also edited to update terminology and instructions. The new spreadsheet version was developed to facilitate submission of bulk data. The burden should not be affected by these changes. The submission of data from the food industry will be strictly voluntary, and based on analytical, calculated, or nutrition facts label sources.
