As part of the terms set for these licenses, the Judges designated SoundExchange, Inc. as the Collective, i.e., the organization charged with collecting the royalty payments and statements of account submitted by licensees, including those that operate preexisting subscription services and those that make ephemeral copies for transmission to business establishments. The Collective is also charged with distributing the royalties to the copyright owners and performers entitled to receive them. See 37 CFR 382.2, 384.4(b). As the Collective, SoundExchange may, not more than once a calendar year, conduct an audit of a licensee for any or all of the prior three years in order to verify royalty payments. SoundExchange must first file with the Judges a notice of intent to audit a licensee and deliver the notice to the licensee. The Judges must publish notice in the Federal Register within 30 days of receipt of a notice announcing the Collective’s intent to conduct an audit. See 37 CFR 382.6, 384.6. On June 27, 2017, SoundExchange filed with the Judges a notice of intent to audit Music Choice’s Preexisting Subscription Service and Business Establishment Service for calendar year 2016. Today’s notice fulfills the Judges’ publication obligation with respect to SoundExchange’s June 27, 2017 notice of intent to audit. Dated: July 19, 2017. Suzanne M. Barnett, Chief Copyright Royalty Judge.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: NARA publishes notice in the Federal Register for records schedules they no longer need to conduct agency business. NARA invites public comments on such records schedules, as required by 44 U.S.C. 3303a(a). Each year, Federal agencies create billions of records on paper, film, magnetic tape, and other media. To control this accumulation, agency records managers prepare schedules proposing records retention periods and submit these schedules for NARA’s approval. These schedules provide for timely transfer into the National Archives of historically valuable records PO 00000 Frm 00084 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 34555 and authorize the agency to dispose of all other records after the agency no longer needs them to conduct its business. Some schedules are comprehensive and cover all the records of an agency or one of its major subdivisions. Most schedules, however, cover records of only one office or program or a few series of records. Many of these update previously approved schedules, and some include records proposed as permanent. The schedules listed in this notice are media neutral unless otherwise specified. An item in a schedule is media neutral when an agency may apply the disposition instructions to records regardless of the medium in which it creates or maintains the records. Items included in schedules submitted to NARA on or after December 17, 2007, are media neutral unless the item is expressly limited to a specific medium. (See 36 CFR 1225.12(e).) Agencies may not destroy Federal records without Archivist of the United States’ approval. The Archivist approves destruction only after thoroughly considering the records’ administrative use by the agency of origin, the rights of the Government and of private people directly affected by the Government’s activities, and whether or not the records have historical or other value. In addition to identifying the Federal agencies and any subdivisions requesting disposition authority, this notice lists the organizational unit(s) accumulating the records (or notes that the schedule has agency-wide applicability when schedules cover records that may be accumulated throughout an agency); provides the control number assigned to each schedule, the total number of schedule items, and the number of temporary items (the records proposed for destruction); and includes a brief description of the temporary records.

Records Schedules; Availability and Request for Comments

AGENCY: National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).

ACTION: Notice of availability of proposed records schedules; request 
for comments.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) 
publishes notice at least once monthly of certain Federal agency 
requests for records disposition authority (records schedules). Once 
approved by NARA, records schedules provide mandatory instructions on 
what happens to records when agencies no longer need them for current 
Government business. The records schedules authorize agencies to 
preserve records of continuing value in the National Archives of the 
United States and to destroy, after a specified period, records lacking 
administrative, legal, research, or other value. NARA publishes notice 
in the Federal Register for records schedules in which agencies propose 
to destroy records they no longer need to conduct agency business. NARA 
invites public comments on such records schedules.

DATES: NARA must receive requests for copies in writing by August 24, 
2017. Once NARA finishes appraising the records, we will send you a 
copy of the schedule you requested. We usually prepare appraisal 
memoranda that contain additional information concerning the records 
covered by a proposed schedule. You may also request these. If you do, 
we will also provide them once we have completed the appraisal. You 
have 30 days after we send to you these requested documents in which to 
submit comments.

ADDRESSES: You may request a copy of any records schedule identified in 
this notice by contacting Records Appraisal and Agency Assistance 
(ACRA) using one of the following means:
    Mail: NARA (ACRA); 8601 Adelphi Road; College Park, MD 20740-6001.
    Email: request.schedule@nara.gov.
    FAX: 301-837-3698.
    You must cite the control number, which appears in parentheses 
after the name of the agency that submitted the schedule, and a mailing 
address. If you would like an appraisal report, please include that in 
your request.

Records Appraisal and Agency Assistance (ACRA), National Archives and 
Records Administration, 8601 Adelphi Road, College Park, MD 20740-6001,

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: NARA publishes notice in the Federal 
Register for records schedules they no longer need to conduct agency 
business. NARA invites public comments on such records schedules, as 
required by 44 U.S.C. 3303a(a).
    Each year, Federal agencies create billions of records on paper, 
film, magnetic tape, and other media. To control this accumulation, 
agency records managers prepare schedules proposing records retention 
periods and submit these schedules for NARA's approval. These schedules 
provide for timely transfer into the National Archives of historically 
valuable records and authorize the agency to dispose of all other 
records after the agency no longer needs them to conduct its business. 
Some schedules are comprehensive and cover all the records of an agency 
or one of its major subdivisions. Most schedules, however, cover 
records of only one office or program or a few series of records. Many 
of these update previously approved schedules, and some include records 
proposed as permanent.
    The schedules listed in this notice are media neutral unless 
otherwise specified. An item in a schedule is media neutral when an 
agency may apply the disposition instructions to records regardless of 
the medium in which it creates or maintains the records. Items included 
in schedules submitted to NARA on or after December 17, 2007, are media 
neutral unless the item is expressly limited to a specific medium. (See 
36 CFR 1225.12(e).)
    Agencies may not destroy Federal records without Archivist of the 
United States' approval. The Archivist approves destruction only after 
thoroughly considering the records' administrative use by the agency of 
origin, the rights of the Government and of private people directly 
affected by the Government's activities, and whether or not the records 
have historical or other value.
    In addition to identifying the Federal agencies and any 
subdivisions requesting disposition authority, this notice lists the 
organizational unit(s) accumulating the records (or notes that the 
schedule has agency-wide applicability when schedules cover records 
that may be accumulated throughout an agency); provides the control 
number assigned to each schedule, the total number of schedule items, 
and the number of temporary items (the records proposed for 
destruction); and includes a brief description of the temporary 
records. The records schedule itself contains a full description of the 
records at the file unit level as well as their disposition. If NARA 
staff has prepared an appraisal memorandum for the schedule, it also 
includes information about the records. You may request additional 
information about the disposition process at the addresses above.
