Any fishing quota or other harvesting opportunities received via this type of transfer are subject to all U.S and NAFO rules as detailed below. For more details on NAFO requirements for chartering and transferring NAFO allocations, contact Patrick Moran (see ADDRESSES). Fishing in the NAFO Regulatory Area U.S. applicant vessels must be in possession of, or obtain, a valid HSFCA permit, which is available from the NMFS Greater Atlantic Regional Fisheries Office. All permitted vessels must comply with any conditions of this permit and all applicable provisions of the Convention on Future Multilateral Cooperation in the Northwest Atlantic Fisheries and the CEM. We reserve the right to impose additional permit conditions that ensure compliance with the NAFO Convention and the CEM, the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act and any other applicable law. The CEM provisions include, but are not limited to: • Maintaining a fishing logbook with NAFO-designated entries (Annex II.A and Article 28); • Adhering to NAFO hail system requirements (Annexes II.D and II.F; Article 28; Article 30 part B); • Carrying an approved onboard observer for each trip consistent with requirements of Article 30 part A; • Maintaining and using a functioning, autonomous vessel monitoring system authorized by issuance of the HSFCA permit as required by Articles 29 and 30; and • Complying with all relevant NAFO CEM requirements, including minimum fish sizes, gear, bycatch retention, and per-tow move on provisions for exceeding bycatch limits in any one haul/set. Further details regarding U.S. and NAFO requirements are available from the NMFS Greater Atlantic Regional Fisheries Office, and can also be found in the 2018 NAFO CEM on the Internet (https://www.nafo.int/Fisheries/ Conservation). Vessels issued valid HSFCA permits under 50 CFR part 300 are exempt from certain domestic fisheries regulations governing fisheries in the Northeast United States found in 50 CFR 648. Specifically, vessels are exempt from the Northeast multispecies and monkfish permit, mesh size, effortcontrol, and possession limit restrictions (§§ 648.4, 648.80, 648.82, VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:54 Dec 08, 2017 Jkt 244001 648.86, 648.87, 648.91, 648.92, and 648.94), while transiting the U.S. exclusive economic zone with multispecies and/or monkfish on board the vessel, or landing multispecies and/ or monkfish in U.S. ports that were caught while fishing in the NAFO Regulatory Area. These exemptions are conditional on the following requirements: The vessel operator has a letter of authorization issued by the Regional Administrator on board the vessel; for the duration of the trip, the vessel fishes, except for transiting purposes, exclusively in the NAFO Regulatory Area and does not harvest fish in, or possess fish harvested in, or from, the U.S. EEZ; when transiting the U.S. EEZ, all gear is properly stowed and not available for immediate use as defined under § 648.2; and the vessel operator complies with the provisions, conditions, and restrictions specified on the HSFCA permit and all NAFO CEM while fishing in the NAFO Regulatory Area.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: The Department of Commerce, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, invites the general public and other Federal agencies to take this opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing information collections, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. DATES: Written comments must be submitted on or before February 9, 2018. ADDRESSES: Direct all written comments to Jennifer Jessup, Departmental Paperwork Clearance Officer, Department of Commerce, Room 6616, 14th and Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230 (or via the Internet at pracomments@doc.gov). FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Requests for additional information or SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00019 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 58185 copies of the information collection instrument and instructions should be directed to Kate Spidalieri (Kate.Spidalieri@noaa.gov; 240–533– 0679). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract This request is for a revision and extension of a currently approved information collection. Section 315 of the National Marine Sanctuaries Act (NMSA) (16 U.S.C. 1445a) allows the Secretary of Commerce to establish one or more advisory councils to provide advice to the Secretary regarding the designation and management of national marine sanctuaries. Executive Order 13178 similarly established a Coral Reef Ecosystem Reserve Council pursuant to the NMSA for the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands Coral Reef Ecosystem Reserve. Councils are individually chartered for each site to meet its specific needs. Once an advisory council has been chartered, a sanctuary superintendent starts a process to recruit members for that council by providing notice to the public and requesting interested parties to apply for the available seat(s) (e.g., Research, Education) and position(s) (i.e., council member or alternate). The information obtained through this application process will be used to determine the qualifications of the applicant for membership on the advisory council. Two application forms are currently associated with this information collection: (a) National Marine Sanctuary Advisory Council Application form; and (b) National Marine Sanctuary Advisory Council Youth Seat Application form. These application forms are currently being revised to ensure consistency between forms, as well as clarify the information and supplemental materials to be submitted by applicants. Application form instructions will specify requirements imposed upon the agency when reviewing applicants as potential council members or alternates, including the need to assess potential conflicts of interest (or other issues) and the applicant’s status as a federally registered lobbyist. Specific questions posed to applicants will be reordered, reworded and, at times, condensed to improve the organization of applicant responses and, thereby, simplify the applicant review process. II.

Data Type of Request: Regular (extension of a currently approved information collection). Number of Respondents: 200. Average Hours per Response: 20 minutes for initial completion of certificate and 2 minutes for subsequent billfish purchase recordkeeping. Burden Hours: 43. Needs and Uses: This request is for an extension of a currently approved information collection. Under the provisions of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq.), NOAA is responsible for management of the Nation’s marine fisheries. In addition, NOAA must comply with the United States’ (U.S.) obligations under the Atlantic Tunas Convention Act of 1975 (16 U.S.C. 971 et seq.). A Certificate of Eligibility (COE) for Billfishes is required under 50 CFR part 635 to accompany all billfish, except for a billfish landed in a Pacific state and remaining in the state of landing. This documentation certifies that the accompanying billfish was not harvested from the applicable Atlantic Ocean management unit (described on the NOAA sample certificate), and identifies the vessel landing the billfish, the vessel’s homeport, the port of offloading, and the date of offloading. The certificate must accompany the billfish to any dealer or processor who subsequently receives or possesses the billfish. A standard certificate format is not currently required to document the necessary information, provided it contains all of the information required. The extension of this collection is necessary to implement the Consolidated Highly Migratory Species Fishery Management Plan, which contains conservation and management measures that limit the Atlantic billfish fishery to a recreational fishery. Affected Public: Business or other forprofit organizations. Frequency: On occasion. Respondent’s Obligation: Mandatory. This information collection request may be viewed at reginfo.gov. Follow the instructions to view Department of Commerce collections currently under review by OMB.

Notice of an extension of a comprehensive demonstration project for all Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) services, including the tiered-model of ABA, for all TRICARE eligible beneficiaries diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). AGENCY: ACTION: This notice provides a fiveyear extension to the Military Health System’s demonstration project entitled Comprehensive Autism Care Demonstration (‘‘Autism Care Demonstration’’). The initial purpose of the Autism Care Demonstration (ACD) was to further analyze and evaluate the appropriateness of the ABA services tiered delivery model under TRICARE (the medical benefit) in light of current and anticipated Behavior Analyst Certification Board guidelines. Based on the agency’s experience in administering ABA services under the ACD, including engagement with beneficiaries, providers, advocates, associations, and other payers, much more analysis and experience is required in order to determine the appropriate characterization of ABA services as a medical treatment, or other modalities, under the TRICARE program coverage requirements—to include further research and evaluation of the results, whether Board Certified Behavior Analysts may appropriately be recognized and treated as independent TRICARE authorized providers of a proven medical benefit, and what authorities are required to add ABA services as a permanent benefit under the TRICARE program—whether as a proven medical benefit or otherwise. DATES: The demonstration will continue through December 31, 2023. ADDRESSES: Defense Health Agency, Health Plan Operations, 7700 Arlington Boulevard, Suite 5101, Falls Church, Virginia 22042.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Abstract

    This request is for a revision and extension of a currently 
approved information collection.
    Section 315 of the National Marine Sanctuaries Act (NMSA) (16 
U.S.C. 1445a) allows the Secretary of Commerce to establish one or more 
advisory councils to provide advice to the Secretary regarding the 
designation and management of national marine sanctuaries. Executive 
Order 13178 similarly established a Coral Reef Ecosystem Reserve 
Council pursuant to the NMSA for the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands 
Coral Reef Ecosystem Reserve. Councils are individually chartered for 
each site to meet its specific needs. Once an advisory council has been 
chartered, a sanctuary superintendent starts a process to recruit 
members for that council by providing notice to the public and 
requesting interested parties to apply for the available seat(s) (e.g., 
Research, Education) and position(s) (i.e., council member or 
alternate). The information obtained through this application process 
will be used to determine the qualifications of the applicant for 
membership on the advisory council.
    Two application forms are currently associated with this 
information collection: (a) National Marine Sanctuary Advisory Council 
Application form; and (b) National Marine Sanctuary Advisory Council 
Youth Seat Application form. These application forms are currently 
being revised to ensure consistency between forms, as well as clarify 
the information and supplemental materials to be submitted by 
applicants. Application form instructions will specify requirements 
imposed upon the agency when reviewing applicants as potential council 
members or alternates, including the need to assess potential conflicts 
of interest (or other issues) and the applicant's status as a federally 
registered lobbyist. Specific questions posed to applicants will be 
reordered, reworded and, at times, condensed to improve the 
organization of applicant responses and, thereby, simplify the 
applicant review process.

II. Method of Collection

    Complete applications may be submitted electronically via email 
(with attachments), by mail, or by facsimile transmission.
